Lmrememberwhen - Great Read
Kept me reading. Enjoyed all the way through
Anbiebell - The Girl across the Bay
Very good book. It will keep you wanting to read the whole thing in one sitting.
Maamc - Raising Children
This author delves into the minds of grownups who were abused as children. The confusion, lack of confidence and the blame they assign to themselves makes this a little too realistic for my taste.
TheLivelyLeahRae - Not a fan
This book started off boring. There are multiple typos, but I continued to read hoping it will progress and become more interesting but it didn’t. What a waste of time.
Lfenlock - The Girls Across the Bay
Lots of twists and turns, could not figure out who killed both women until the end. Nice story of foster sisters reuniting and working together to piece bring justice and closure to all involved.
Pins4 - The Girls Across The Bay
Enjoyed reading your book. Couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to see what else you have out there. Thank you!
lesjh - Wonderful
Great story and wonderful writing. Loved the characters and different writing style.
jdt_s - Mystery thriller
This one was confusingly complicated. I lost interest about midway but I make it a point of honor to finish even if it fails my criterion of interest. I finished but it didn’t get better in my opinion.
kirchersmiles - Awesome
The Girls across the Bay (The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries, Book 1) by Emerald O’Brien
This is my first book by this author and although I seriously enjoyed it, it took me a bit to get in to it, and there were parts I had to go back and reread because at times it was hard to follow or a bit wordy.
This was about 2 young girls that started out as friends and then became sisters and their journey through foster care into adulthood. The storyline was amazing and the attention to detail was done perfectly. Living the same story through two different perspectives was unique and I did by the middle of the story find myself completely invested and I could not put the book down.
I loved the bond between Madigan and Grace and watching them both deal with life in their own ways was awesome. I love crime stories and I love trying to figure it all out with them and I will say this one totally threw me, and that's what makes me love reading this genre.
I highly recommend this story and I can't wait for more from this author.
Linda aka Noni - Loved it!
I really enjoyed the characters, the storyline, and kept me in suspense to the end. Definitely recommend!
Senior1935 - The Girls Across the Bay
I give this suspenseful novel 5 stars. It will hold your attention and keep you guessing right to the very end.
Avid Reader QC - Fascinating, complex, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying to read.

macdufff - The girls across the bay
A gripping read I couldn’t put down. Just about the time I thought I knew who was guilty, I was wrong. Kept me in suspense to the very end.
Saucey Cher - Refreshing
A book that had a new plot twist. It didn’t have filthy language. Best of all, it was a complete book with no cliffhanger so you buy the next book.
sometimers3 - Girls Across the Bay
It was a great story. The ending was sure a big surprise.
frosty 12 - The Girls Across The Bay
Enjoyed reading. Very good twist at end.
Gigi Judy - The Girls Across the Bay
Good story. Good character development. Misspelled words were a distraction. Use of wrong word as in “pouring” when “poring” was appropriate was also distracting.
MrsDuck719 - Excellent book
This is a great book. Not only a mystery/thriller that draws you into the story quickly but an emotional tour de force.
The characters are so well written that they will stay with me for a long time. “Sisters” Maddie and Grace so believable and so human. This story brings out some of the horrors of Foster care (Even though most foster parents have great hearts and love beyond belief their kiddos...like my Niece Ashlyn and hubby Seth). Some of what the characters went through are probably foster specific, but resonated with my dysfunctional childhood and mirrored some of my own issues.
If you want a book with “feels”, this is it. Overwhelming love, anger, tears it’s all there.
Do yourself a favor and get this book.
MHScaccia - Splendid!
This is a superbly written novel with everything for which a reader could ask! Emerald O’Brien’s description of the main characters has such reality imbedded. Their difficulty believing in themselves, questioning whether their decisions are the right ones, doubting their abilities and intelligence...these things are exactly what happens to real people who have suffered grave abuse. With drama, action, completely unforeseen plot twists and more, I highly recommend this book. 4.8/5⭐️ I was given a complimentary copy of this book, but happily give my honest review.

This book is suspenseful!!
Snowbirdont - Girls across the Bay
Good read! Look forward to book 2.
aussieblonde999 - The Girls Across the Bay
Another great read by Emerald O’Brien
Preferential - The girls across the bay
Half a star rating. This started out intriguing with almost likeable characters who were held back from developing by far too much rambling and disjointed introspection. I don’t like to give a low rating to hard working authors with incredible ideas and stories, but this book did disappoint.
