    This was a phenomenal debut! I seriously loved this book! Reese is always looking for love in all the wrong places! Seriously she is looking for "the one." So when she gets an invitation to an exclusive singles retreat on a remote island...well she is all in...it sounded like The Bachelor in Paradise version.

Seriously she is looking for "the one." So when she gets an invitation to an exclusive singles retreat on a remote island...well she is all in...it sounded like The Bachelor in Paradise version. However when Reese arrives...it's more like The Bachelor's evil twin version...As they try to plaster her with drinks, she holds strong. They insist she wear the revealing clothing that they supply. She begins to wonder...is she being taped? Is this a reality show that she did not sign up for? When Reese never returns from the island, her BFF Ann is determined to find out the truth. Did Reese find true love and run away with him, or did something sinister happen on that island? Oh my gosh you guys! This book was so good! I literally couldn't put it down. There are two timelines and they both were fantastic. When they came together, they did not disappoint. The ending was perfection. The writing is strong, the storyline and characters are well developed..and that twist...well it is seriously hard to believe that this is the author's first book! Thank you so much to Suzy Approved Tours, CamCat Books and Emily Whitson for my gifted copy!

I hit the jackpot with Ms. Whitson and Beneath the Marigolds! The story is told from two perspectives. Reese, who is a hopeless romantic…always looking for Mr. Right. She bounces from one relationship to another but stays optimistic. And her friend, Ann, is down-to-earth and focused on her career as a lawyer. The two women may have a lot of differences, but they are bonded by their shared addictions. Both are AA members. When Reese receives an invitation to the “Last Chance” retreat, she’s ecstatic. It is an exclusive singles’ retreat located on a private island and sounds like the perfect fit for Reese. She tries to get Ann to attend with her, but it’s not Ann’s thing. Reese connects with someone right away, but some bizarre things are going on, so she decides to cut her stay short. When Reese disappears, Ann decides to attend the next session, hoping she can find out what happened to her friend. The more she digs, the more questions she has. This is one sketchy place! As wonderful as it sounds, I think I’ll pass! Christina, the host, is very mysterious. And all of her rules and restrictions are strange. She provides the outfits and requires them to be worn. There is a makeup artist. Meals are set up at strange times, but there is never any food on the “dates”. Alcohol flows freely and denying it feels like an insult. Not a friendly place for a recovering alcoholic! This is one of the best debuts I’ve read. A well-written must-read! Sincere thanks to Edelweiss and CamCat Books. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

    Beneath the Marigolds is a fast-paced psychological thriller that mashes up the reality series The Bachelor with Gone Girl. Told in three parts, the story alternates between the points of view of Ann and Reese. Ann is heading to Phaux Island under the guise of finding love, but she’s really searching for Reese, her close friend who went missing a month earlier.

Told in three parts, the story alternates between the points of view of Ann and Reese. Ann is heading to Phaux Island under the guise of finding love, but she’s really searching for Reese, her close friend who went missing a month earlier. Reese’s point of view scenes begin when she first came to the island, eager to find her soulmate. There’s a distinct writing style change between the two heroines’ points of view, which made it incredibly easy to recognize whose chapter I was reading.  Reese is a flighty, immature-for-her-age, hopeless romantic, and her chapters read as such. Ann, on the other hand, is far more reserved. She’s a realist. She’s a lawyer, who, like her best friend, is unlucky in love. Her chapters have a far more analytical style, and even the way she views what’s happening at the retreat is coloured by her experiences and her profession.  Both Reese and Ann are recovering alcoholics, and this is a theme throughout the novel. Because they’re at a romantic retreat, of course they’re constantly being tempted with alcohol, almost to the point where it seems like the people running the resort want them off the wagon. There’s something sinister going on, and Ann is determined to get to the bottom of it, not just so she can find her friend, but so she can get out of there unscathed.  There are many exhilarating twists and turns in the plot. There were a few developments that sent me reeling, and then I was back to hungrily devouring the book. The final reveal was quite shocking, and it nicely wrapped up a cohesive and entertaining story. *Thank you to CamCat Books, Edelweiss, and the author for the ebook to review* This review appeared first on https://powerlibrarian.wordpress.com/ Instagram | Blog | Website | Twitter My 2021 Reading Challenge

Thank you for taking the time to check out my debut novel. This has been my darling for the past four years, and I am so thrilled (and nervous!) to finally be able to share it with the world.For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated with pop culture—including ABC's The Bachelor(ette)—and a good whodunnit. Both offer compelling storylines and great escapes from reality, and I wondered what would happen if the two collided. Although the novel went through several iterations, I always came back to the original premise of "what would happen if a reality dating show went very, very wrong?" I thought the concept was interesting and unique, and I hope you, my dear readers, feel the same way.I hope you enjoy the characters, as well. I developed the protagonists, Reese and Ann, during the heyday of the #ownvoices movement, so it was critical to write from perspectives that I knew and understood—namely, women in recovery. But even before the movement gained traction, writing about people in recovery in an accurate, respectful, and refreshingly normal light has been a long-time goal. In fiction, addicts are commonly portrayed as one-dimensional villains. Or, they are defined by their substance use. I wanted to see main characters who were in recovery and succeeding. Of course, both of my protagonists run into trouble, but it's trouble unrelated to their addiction. There’s still so much shame surrounding addiction, and I wanted to have characters who talked about their recovery in a stigma-free manner. Seeing such characters would have been really helpful to me when I was entering recovery, so I hope it helps someone else in a similar situation.While I tried my best to maintain the twists and break-neck speed required of contemporary thrillers, I veered away from the bleak tone that is popular today. Life can be difficult enough, so it was important to me to end on a hopeful note. The conclusion may not be the conventional happy ending promulgated on reality dating shows, but I believe it’s a happy ending all the same. By the end of the story, I hope it’s clear there are many paths to a fulfilling and meaningful life.If you haven’t read the story yet, I hope you enjoy it. And if you have read it—or shared it, or bought it, or shared words of encouragement, I am deeply grateful. Thank you, from the very bottom of my heart.

    A rare 5 star review from me. This is SUCH a good read. I really appreciate thrillers with twists you don’t see coming and this is definitely one of those. If you’re looking for a book that will suck you in and keep you guessing as long as it keeps you entertained , this is the one!

    Loved this book!! It was my favorite type of thriller- not gory or overly scary but still kept me guessing and at the edge of my seat. The underlying story focuses on a sweet, strong friendship that endures the hardships of life and brings up insightful and really spot-on themes for women in their late 20s/30s. A must-read!

    I was hooked from the prologue, needing to know where the story would take the protagonists. This book toggles between the POV of two characters, racing through the narrative from each perspective, keeping you engrossed in both (and literally up until 3am), and guessing how their stories eventually overlap. The clues and hints and twists leave you playing detective, with more than one punch to the gut reveal - seriously fun reading!

    I am usually a slow reader who has a tough time finishing books, but this was not the case with this thriller. I legitimately read the last 100 pages of the book in one sitting because I could not put it down. The fast pace and multiple twists make this book a real page-turner. Beyond the thrills, there is a touching emotional element to the heroine's story of addiction and the personal battle she is fighting. I cannot wait to get my hands on this young author's next novel.

Whitson transports the reader to Phaux Island, a remote island off the coast of Hawaii, for an intriguing thriller that will keep the reader guessing and turning the pages. The story centers around Reese Marigold, who disappeared after spending a month at Last Chance Retreat, an exclusive singles retreat on Phaux Island, off the coast of Hawaii. When Reese had been missing for thirty-one days, her friend Ann Stone, a corporate attorney, knows something terrible has happened to her friend, and she is determined to go to the island and find out what happened to Reese. After checking into Last Chance, Ann soon discovers that the resort is more than what it claims to be, it has the feel of a reality dating show like the Bachelor / Bachelorette. Can Ann keep a low profile and go along with the retreat's program while searching for the truth of what happened to Reese, or is there something more sinister happening on the island that could put her in danger as well? In her debut novel, author Emily C. Whitson weaves a slow-building and suspenseful tale written in alternating first person narratives that follows both Reese's and Ann's stay at the retreat. Reese's storyline follows her stay on the island leading up to her disappearance. Ann's storyline follows her investigation into Reese's disappearance, as well as discovering that the strange retreat program has taken on an appearance of a reality dating show. As the reader follows both Reese and Ann's time on the remote island, incidents at the retreat and the flashbacks to Ann's past reveals an interconnection that has a lot of drama, tension, and a threat of danger around every corner, and where everyone is considered a suspect. The reader is easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting. It is filled with enough family drama and secrets, motives, possible suspects, action, a touch of unexpected romance ala reality dating show style, and intriguing twists and turns that definitely keeps the reader guessing until the surprising conclusion. This was a really interesting story to read! The author does a wonderful job of providing enough clues to engage the reader, and I found myself so caught up on trying to figure out who is behind Reese's disappearance, and why there was so much drama and intrigue surrounding the retreat's program. I loved how Ann used her expertise as an attorney to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. I was absolutely stunned by the conclusion, I never saw it coming! I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I also loved reading about Reese and Ann's backstories, both are broken people who had to overcome their traumatic pasts in order to move forward with their lives. Beneath The Marigolds will definitely take the readers on one heck of a thrilling roller coaster ride. https://jerseygirlbookreviews.blogspo...

Some of the people who had been at the retreat when Reese was there were also there with Ann. Because both accounts are in first person and many of the same people are referenced, keeping straight which character I was currently following became a chore. There were lots of hook-ups between the men and women at the retreat. There seemed to be more of an emphasis on sexual encounters than really establishing long lasting relationships. That being said, this is a good debut effort. There is subtle psychological suspense throughout. There are several surprise twists near the end of the novel. Whitson has a good writing style that kept me reading. I'll be looking for more from her. I received a complimentary egalley of this book through Partners in Crime Virtual Books Tours. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    What a fun, propulsive read! This book cleverly combines the archetypes of "reality TV" and the "trapped-on-a-remote-island" mystery that will perpetually keep you guessing what happened to some of the participants of an exclusive singles weekend. And like any good mystery, the final reveal was quite surprising, and ultimately satisfying. I'm a big fan of alternating POVs, especially when done well, where each main character has a distinct voice and those two personalities play off each other. E What a fun, propulsive read!

The two main characters, Ann and Reese, are both recovering alcoholics, and their backstory of how they each dealt with their demons offers another layer to this well-paced novel.

At the heart of the book is the bond between Ann and Reese -- a relationship that started when Reese was Ann's sponsor in Alcoholics Anonymous, but grew into a lasting friendship. A thriller with heart!

    From the very first page you are instantly invested. Whitson’s descriptions are so detailed and well thought out, making it easy to create every scene in your mind and watch it unfold. That coupled with the non-linear story telling makes the mystery even more gripping and captivating. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with plenty of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end.

This book has twists and turns you will not see coming. The characters are well developed and intriguing. I could see the whole story in my mind. This is best kind of thriller and I would recommend it to casual and avid readers alike. I cannot wait for more from this author!

    Beneath the Marigolds had me at the prologue - three concise pages packed with context and suspense. From there, I was hooked! It was such a joy reading Reese’s and Ann’s perspectives and trying to piece together this mystery. I truly believe it is a book any reader would enjoy.
