Early Reviewing

Library Thing has an Early Reviewers program where they send advance readers' copies and you then review them on the site. There is stiff competition for a limited number of copies, but I've received 16 books in the past 2 years. I've been slow about reading and reviewing them, though, and got a friendly reminder that "missing reviews may hurt your chances for winning more Early Reviewer books in the future." So I've put these on the top of the to-be-read list, and finished:

"Beat" by Amy Boaz - Frances and her young daughter escape to Paris to avoid questions relating to the disappearance of her lover Joseph's longtime partner, a famous poet. Her husband and toddler son remain at home in the NYC suburbs. Most of the characters were selfish and unsympathetic.

"The Last Bridge" by Teri Coyne - Cat Rucker returns to her family's Ohio farm after her mother's suicide, only to have painful memories of domestic violence surface. Family secrets unfold with every gripping page.
