Calderwood Cases

Next Girl to Die by Dea Poirier

Monday, April 29, 2019

Next Girl to Die was a thrilling start to the Calderwood Cases series by new author Dea Poirier. Next Girl to Die takes place in a small town in Maine. Homicide detective Claire Calderwood returns to her hometown to help them solve the recent murder of one of the town’s teenage girls. The murder is similar to the murder of Claire’s older sister 20 years earlier, which was never solved. Claire meets a journalist, Noah who beings as a pain in her ass but ends up being an important ally.

The book was well written, and I didn’t want to put it down, unfortunately I had to eat, sleep and work. Dea’s description of the situations made you feel like you were there. Claire was easy to relate to as a sister who would do anything to avenge her sister. Claire is a strong character who ends up not only helping a town try and solve a murder but also ends up getting some closure for herself. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.

I give this book 4/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Next Girl to Die is available May 1, 2019

Thank you to Dea Poirier, Thomas & Mercer (Amazon Publishing) and Netgalley for the advanced digital copy for my Kindle!


Welcome to confessions...

Hello all!
My name is Nicole, I am 36 years old and I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I work in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2007 with my B.S. in Education Foundations. I graduated from Portland State University in 2018 with my Maters in Early Childhood Education: Inclusive Education and Curriculum & Instruction and a Graduate Certificate in Infant Toddler Mental Health. I have three cats (who may make appearances here every so often); Cullen Edward, Kadence Isabella and Kendrix James. Why a book blog? I have been wanting to do a blog about books for a while but between a full time job and full time grad school that didn't leave much time for reading. Well, I'm done with grad school and am getting back into my love of reading, as I call it, for fun."reading for fun". So I thought why not give it a shot. Books, Books and more Books! I have loved reading my whole life (see the photo of me around age 2 with a book). My Gramma was a huge influence in my reading (and still is she is always adding to my book collection), my need to learn to read started because I wanted to be able to read my Dad's Sports Illustrated on my own and since the day I started asking to learn my family has never stopped me (other than refusing to move my book collection ever again). I rarely ever leave the house with out a book, I have gone to a bar and taken out a book to read. What to expect:
I am not a writer, I am not a professional reviewer, "I'm just a girl" (shout out to Gwen Stefani) loves reading, discussing reading, and finding new books, authors or being introduced to old books and authors who I missed. So if you are here for professional opinions or writing you are in the wrong spot. If you are looking for confessions of a reading freak, the occasional cat pictures, a couple of spelling or syntax errors and random song lyrics this is the place for you. This is safe space for self proclaimed book freaks to confess about books!
My favorite genres in Fiction include: Mystery & Thrillers, Psychological Thrillers, True Crime, Historical Fiction, Young Adult/Teen, Children's literature. I also enjoy the following non-fiction genres: Autobiography/Biography, Education/Parenting/Child Development, Self-Help, True Crime and history. Depending on the book (and what is happening in life) it can take me a week to two weeks to complete a book. I wish all I had to do was read but alas, I have three fur children to feed.
Any who, I think you for coming on this journey and welcome and suggestions (book, blog, or website wise).
