⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5) We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker

A list of three things I wanted to do immediately after finishing this book:

1. Hug it
2. Reread it
3. Press it into the hands of every bookworm I know

I cannot recommend it enough. ALL THE STARS. The sibling relationship between the Radley children, Duchess and Robin, left an indelible mark on my heart. Right next to the one left by Meg and Charles Wallace. But it doesn’t stop there. The prose is beautiful, and the story itself is probably one of the most finely-crafted mysteries I’ve ever read. Read this when you are in the mood for a book that is part suspense novel, part love story for the ages, and part study of friendship and loyalty versus morality and justice. It is Beartown by Fredrik Backman meets This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger.

Best paired with two cocoas and a small cupcake with a single candle in it.

XO, Tara
