A Hall of Keys and No Doors Ø Ella Keyes thought the death of her twin brother Stuart was the last time she'd let life surprise her She's up for tenure at her university she escaped a doomed engagement and her fluffy cat knows exactly when to expect her home every day But when her grandmother passes and leaves Ella her house Ella discovers that the third floor corridor of keys is than just a family pun The seemingl. I felt I was the wrong reader for this book I started reading it in October 2018 and in the last day or two skimmed through the last half to finish it Normally I'd give a story that was close to a DNF no rating or a low rating but this was actually well written and thought out I didn't hate it I just couldn't get into itI've read eight other books by Emmie Mears so this one was of a flukeThe book has some strong elements It primarily deals with grief and the loss of the life you know It grapples with the uestion of if you could somehow change things so the events of loss didn't happen would you There's a background of mystery to the plot and the genre includes the paranormal but the storyline mainly deals with the lead's inner journey as she navigates the upheavals in her life The tone is one of melancholy and a downer with hope and light at the end of the tunnelI normally read lesfic and this book isn't that to me The lead is bisexual who ends up in a mf relationship However the lead's best friend is lesbian and plays a larger role in the storyOverall an okay story but it wasn't for me 3 stars Read Ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Emmie Mears

Emmie Mears Ì 6 review Doesn't know how to identify and Ella's parents refuse to return her calls Worse she finds trinkets from Stuart everywhere she goes ghosts of a game they used to play The leash she's kept on life's surprises for three years has snapped and Ella will have to learn that the road to peace starts with letting go of control and that sometimes the best family you have is the family you build. ‘A Hall of Keys and no Doors’ by Emmie Mears tells the story of Ella a young woman who lost her twin brother 3 years ago and now also loses her beloved grandmother Unexpectedly she inherits her grandmother’s house where she spent many summers On the top floor the house has a hallway with only keys and no doors hence the title Ella never got to touch the keys when staying at her grannies Gradually Ella discovers the secret of the keysThis was an easy read perfect to start my vacation and this book was hard to put down I loved the unfamiliar uite magical story entangled with some romance I felt a lot of sympathy for most of the characters who are well developed At the end of the book there were a few chapters I liked less for me there probably was a bit too much of magic going onIn spite of coping with loss grief and difficult family relations being big themes in this book it doesn’t feel like a book with a heavy theme Above all it’s a book about believing in the future and surrounding yourself with people you trust and loveThank you to BHC Press for the review copy
