Book Title: These Shallow Graves
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
Narration: Kim Bubbs
Genre: Mystery, Historical, YA
Source: Audiobook (Library)
Overall Rating: 4/5 Stars
The Luxe Series meets Nancy Drew…well sort of anyway. The time period is very similar to the Luxe Series, but with less talk of fashion and high society manners. Although, it does drone on at times about the latter. It could have done without some of that and maybe been a little less lengthy. Overall, a engaging murder/mystery, despite my being correct all along about whodunit. I suggest Audio format, it really makes the slow parts easier to get through.
The Feels: 3.8/5
Backdrop (World Building): 4.5/5
Book Cover: 4.5/5
Ending: 4.5/5 Cliffhanger: Nope, not at all
