In Malice Quite Close


By Brandi Lynn Ryder

*this is #3 of four books in a row I'm blasting to you this week in the Fall Fab Book Giveaway- 
be sure to enter them all!

When I was first asked to review In Malice Quite Close, I have to admit, I almost turned it down. The title didn’t quite appeal to me (later I discover it’s part of a poem), and then at first, the description didn’t really grab me. But something, somehow pulled at me, and I told the publicist to go ahead and send it to me.

This is one of those really cool times I am so glad I didn’t make a mistake. It is an incredible read. It’s definitely not one of my normal chicky books, and definitely don’t get me wrong when I refer to my normal books as “chicky” books, but by now, you all know the types of books I love to read. Women’s fiction.

This one is more of a mysterious thrilling page-turner where I had no clue where it was going or what was happening or who might be a bad guy or if the main character was whacky or not. Do you know what I mean? See … Not my normal read!

I also loved this book because it starts out with a young girl being kidnapped and morphs into her turning into the kidnapper’s lover. There’s also a strong element of the art world as well, and I was an art history major, so that aspect appealed to me.

I started reading it when we got home from Chicago this summer. It was one of those things where I said, “Hmmm, I’ll read the first couple of pages and see where it takes me.” I had piles of mail surrounding me and a bunch of books to sort through, and tons of laundry to do, but I ended up on the couch where I read through the first 43 pages like THAT!

That’s a sign of a really good book. I knew I had to finish this book and then share it with you guys.

Here’s the book blurb:

When Tristan Mourault—expatriate aesthete, and heir to a world-renowned collection of Impressionist masterpieces—catches sight of young Karen Miller during a trip to San Francisco, he knows he must have her. Convincing himself that she deserves more than the frayed, middle-brow life she was born into, he sets in motion a calculated campaign of enchantment and romance that sweeps Karen off her feet. First, he stages her disappearance. Then, her transformation. Karen, the ordinary fifteen-year-old girl, becomes Gisèle—Tristan's daughter by day, his lover by night, and the crowning achievement of his lifelong quest for beauty and perfection.

Fifteen years later, Devon, Washington. Framed by glacial lakes and snow-capped mountains, Devon is a picturesque bohemia with a prospering art scene. Tristan and Gisèle are the center of this elite, eccentric, and capricious world, and Gisèle herself has matured into a sophisticated young woman. The desired object of many admirers, she is also now a devoted mother to her daughter Nicola and a distant wife to Luke, the man she married to keep up appearances. But the secrets that hold their life together are as ornate as the town's legendary architecture. When Nicola uncovers a cache of unsigned nude portraits—all of Gisèle —Tristan's carefully curated world erupts, and tragedy unfolds.

An exploration into the origins of obsession and the beguiling power of art, In Malice, Quite Close tells a story of perilous greed and manipulation, drawing readers into a byzantine drama that keeps its darkest secrets until the very last page.

I tend to have a possitive outlook for almost every book I start so the surprise is usually for the book I was sure I would like and ended up hating. Wicked by Gregory Maguire was one example of that.

TaraUB said...

I've been surprised at some books that had great reviews, and seemingly my type, and it was a struggle to finish. I'm also having trouble with the first Stieg Larson book. It's hurts my head. TaraUB in IN

Leslie said...

I got the book Freedom (an Oprah pick) and couldn't make it past the first 100 pages. I kept trying as it was a bestseller, but just couldn't finish it which never happens. I normally just keep plugging away...not this time...hated it! LeslieGC

I didn't think that I would like "The History of the World" series by Ken Follett but I could not put those books down.

jdstec said...

I usually pick a book by it's cover, much like I do my wine, so yes there have been times I have been surprised both good and bad.

Ally said...

I was at a bookstore the other day and saw their was a sequel to the Nanny Diaries (Nanny returns). I loved the first one and was so surprised with how terrible the second one is. I couldn't even finish it.

Emma S. said...

I picked up Eat, Pray, Love after it became an international sensation. I figured I'd like it because I'm obsessed with the idea of going to Italy. However, I didn't realize how much I would love that book. I underlined certain passages that spoke to me. I won't even lend my copy to friends or family because I'm afraid I won't get my book back!

LizzybethDJ said...

I am always being surprised by books - both good and bad. If I don't like a book initially, I usually put it down and try again later. My most recent attempt at this is Pillars of the Earth, I picked it up again last week. So far, it's good and I'm very intrigued!

Katie said...

I generally only stick with certain books unless I am reading them for class. I recently read The Kite Runner and was suprised at how much I really liked the book and how much I learned about Afghan culture.

krstrpp said...

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Twilight series. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of another page turner!

Crystal said...

I'm very book snobby. If the cover/blurb on the back isn't interesting to me, I won't pick it up. At bookclub I got The Secret Life of Bees in a book exchange and everyone gushed about it. I couldn't get past Ch. 2. I think I'm coming to the conclusion that I don't like "time" pieces. I prefer characters I can relate to.

Juliet Farmer said...

resisted the Twilight series for ages until enough of my friends who knew me well told me i would like, which i did. but based on the cover art? bleh.

Margie said...

I usually like a book I pick up to read. But I read reviews, check out the jacket blurb, etc. I usually go by the cover also, but that is not always a good idea.

A Novel Review- Laura Kay said...

I'm definitely all about a good cover! I have a pretty big net of type of books I like to read and find I like to break it up a little with the genre. There have been a number of books where I'm not sure about, but have found a number of gems. Even books where I'm not thrilled with I have found if I get through the whole book I tend to find some appreciation for it.

CAnative said...

I was never interested in the Twilight series. Would openly say I would refuse to read. I ended up being goaded into reading them and was SO surprised at how much I enjoyed that series.

I have always managed to finish a book even if it's not as great as I was hoping....with one exception - Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Was so excited to read this with all the hype of the theater show and I just couldn't get through it. Absolutely hated it.

Amy Goddard said...

I will read just about anything. If it doesn't keep my attention through the first chapter I tend not to finish it though.

ncsuloges said...

I have to say how much I enjoy reading everyone's comments. I have officially taken Wicked off my list to read. :) I would say I hated the 19th Wife. A friend of mine in a book club said it was fantastic and it sounded good but I could not get through it. I for one LOVE The Secret Life of Bees!

lynnbelo said...

I also lean toward the "chicky" books, but in a pinch I picked up a book titled "murder book"...It was such a struggle to get through, possibly the worst book I've ever read. I was surprised on how much I loved "Airframe" though. It was a definite page turner!

Krystal said...

I was thrilled to read Wicked because I LOVE The Wizard of Oz. It took me forever to get into it. It got to the point that when my dog ate my copy... I didn't rush out to get a new one. My husband surprised me with a new copy and I have still yet to open it. :(

Susan said...

I read The Story of Edgar Sawtelle because 'everyone else was'. I had been avoiding it because the synopsis of it did not appeal to me but I had to see what all the hype was about. Let me tell you, I LOVE that book! And I have been recommending it to everyone I know or if someone asks me for a 'good book' suggestion.

Bee said...

"Room" surprised me. It sounded way more...menacing than my usual fare, but I gave it a chance and loved it.
-Bee H

Margaret said...

Yes that's happened to me a few times. Twilight believe it or not. I felt like ahhhh it's all the hype it's probably not that good and I loved it! Of course it's gone the other way for me too where I anticipate a book to bee good and can't wait to read it and then actually dislike it. This book is one that I would not have picked off the bat either so now I'm interested and curious!

Kimmi said...

I was very ambivalent about Love in Mid-Air and when I finished it,I was very disappointed - that the book had ended. It's become one of my favorites and I can't wait until Ms. Wylie writes again.

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

Believe it or not it was the Hunger Games. I read them earlier this year before the movie, and the phenomenon (or maybe I was just a little slow to find out about them)
and could not put it down, read the first two books in a week!

BrendaL71 said...

Sorry, to say no book comes to mind that I wasn't sure about but read and turned out to be good. I tend to read a lot of my stuff from recommendations or blogs like yours. This one sounds like just my kind of book.

Jenn3128 said...

I didn't think I'd like an "end of the world" type, but recently finished Burn Down the Sky. It knocked my socks off!

Melissa said...

I was pleasantly surprised by Nicole Richie's book Priceless, which I got from you! I really liked it!

Megan said...

I've heard so much-good and bad-about Flowers for Algernon. I didn't read it in high school so I felt I needed to read it now. I was surprised by how well it was written, but I was surprised by how much I hated the book. -Eloisepeaches

Melissa said...

Atonement was a book club selection and I was dreading it. I ended up loving it. Melissa Rem

Bev V said...

Looking at the blurb, and all the hype around "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", I thought I wanted to read it. Ugh! I couldn't get past the first 50 pages.

Coleen said...

I will try just about any book. .. but one that stays on my mind even years later is: FALL ON YOUR KNEES by Ann-Marie McDonald. I was so not sure of this book but when I read it I found myself unable to put it down. It was one of the best books I have read. . .and I do read a lot!!!

kimmy25 said...

Hunger Games - I wasnt expecting it to be my new favorite series. I love when that happens!

Neckmeat said...

I've never been a huge book person. I usually only read based on someone else's view that I trust. :)

Bridget said...

I just finished The Help. I didn't read it when it first came out as I didn't think I would like it, but when the movie came out and everyone was raving about it, I decided to give it a try. Would like to see the movie, too.

Lizett34 said...

I am sad to say that I do pick books by their covers. It is because of this that some have suprised me in a good way while others just did not cut it.

kswederski said...

Last year I read The Bee and really liked it and was surprised I did.

Jeffie T said...

The Game of Thrones series. I usually like lighter (subject matter and actual weight) books, but I have DEVOURED the series.

DaphneSFL said...

I'm actually reading a book right now that's popular, and is becoming a movie. I've had it on my Book List (i keep a list of books i want to read on my iPhone) for over a year, and, after getting 70+ pages into it, I fear I must put it away for now. It's not what I thought and it's too much of a chore to read.

Liz said...

I just finished the Harry Potter series, which I LOVED after years of saying that I hated fantasy novels. And a few years ago, I read A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore and King Dork by Frank Portman for my book club, totally expecting not to like them and I loved them too! I love when this happens!

Mom'sLove said...

I'm pretty picky about book covers.. I saw Holly Kennedy's The Tin Box and was not sure. Now its one of my very favorite books of all time. LOVE it.
Amanda from Mom'sLove

Julie S said...

I'm usually pretty picky about which books I read. I get surprised by book club picks because some of them don't appeal to me by the description and then turn out to be pretty great.

cindy r said...

I remember the the HYPE surrounding THE HELP. It made me want the pull my hair out, but eventually I gave in and read it. What a treasure. It's the one novel I wish I could read again for the first time. Thanks Mommy for this continuing contest! CindyInMiami writeoncindy@yahoo.com

Dani In Chicago said...

I picked up Beach Music by Pat Conroy when it was first published about 15 years ago. I hadn't heard of it, wasn't sure what it was about. Just picked it up and started reading it and didn't put it down til it was done.

animallover75 said...

I was trying to meet my requirements for a book club I ordered a book called MODOC. It was about an boy and his elephant. I love animals but I wasn't sure about this one. It was fantastic I couldn't put it down once I started it.

Jezebel's Mama said...

I would never would've read any kooky books about vampires but a while back heard of an author from southern Arkansas who wrote a series set my neck of the woods. The friend talked about all the local references and I was interested. Well, I got a Charlaine Harris book with Sookie Stackhouse and ended up reading most of the series!

Pillars of the Earth===LOVED it

CherylB said...

As a migraine sufferer, I had to check out Chocolate and Vicodin by Jenette Fulda. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved it! What a great read with very relatable humor!

cabest@yahoo.com

Casey said...

I really wanted to love Wicked but was disappointed. On the other hand, I wasn't sure about Twilight, and come on, who didn't love that?

keltban said...

I recently had to stop reading " A Visit from the Goon Squad" I just could not get into it. I hardly ever stop reading books. I usually muster through them. And this was getting rave reviews..but I couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

Kristi said...

OK, I'll give you one that I loved and one that I hated...

I bought Eat, Pray, Love after seeing the movie trailer and was sure that I would love the book. I never even finished the book it was so slow and painful to read! I'm all about self-discovery/awareness, blah blah blah, but this one absolutely bored me to tears. One of the only times I actually liked the movie better than the book.

I picked up Emily Giffin's "Something Borrowed" after having seen it at Target for awhile. Having known nothing about the author or the book I bought it on a whim. Imagine my surprise when I devoured it and all her other books. Now she's absolutely one of my favorite authors and I recommend her books to everyone.

Thanks for the giveaways!

robynn78 said...

Just finished Room by Emma Donoghue, I got about 20 pages in, thought I was done.. I told my friend who loaned it to me, I was not sold by the book cover nor up to the page I was. She said, you have to read it, it starts a little slow, then you will understand.. I did thats for sure.. fantastic book I recommend it to all of you!

Amanda Leigh said...

I picked up The Time Traveler's Wife b/c it was so popular. I was very surprised that I did not enjoy the book.

Terri said...

I can't really think of one, but it's really rare for me to give up on a book. I can only think of one or two I have just not been able to get into and stick with through the end.

ludy2288 said...

I'm drawn to pretty pink covers or those with wine/shoes/baby things/shopping bags, but I have been surprised by books I didnt think I would enjoy. On the other side, I've tried forcing myself through books other people have enjoyed, and just couldn't do it.

Erin G said...

I've had both things happen... don't judge a book by it's cover or title I suppose.

Books & Reviews said...

The book that I could not get past page 30 was the girl with the dragon tattoo. I really wanted to read it but I just simply could not get into it!

faithspage said...

YES! Recently a book that was getting great reviews from blogs, and I thought it sucked!

Joani 15 said...

I didn't know if I would like the Girl with the Dragon Tat. But, I loved it. I read all of Stieg Larson's books after that and loved them all. I also tried some other Norwegian authors. I am looking for recommendations for other similiar books.

Ready To Be A Momma said...

There are a lot of books that I have been surprised with one way or the other. Of course right now, I can't think of a single one!

kathygold9778 said...

For some reason I had absolutely no desire to read Water For Elephants. My mom (who usually doesn't read much) inisited I would love it and gave me her copy. It sat for probably about 2 years. Then I saw the movie was coming out and every one was talking about how much they loved the book so I decided to sit down and finally open the book. I ended up loving it so much I don't think I ever put it down and basically finished it in 24 hrs.

I know I have but I can't think of an example right now! Most of the books I've read lately have been recommended either by you or by Jen Lancaster so I've had a lot of good reads recently!! Thank you! :)

Kristi said...

The Greyfriar: Vampire Empire book 1 by Clay & Susan Griffith. It was so not my type of book, but it sucked me in and I loved it. It was kind of dystopian, adventure and fantasy all mixed into one.

Anonymous said...

I was surprised by Harry Potter. I was a late arrival to that series, but was shocked by how much I liked them...especially since I hate science fiction and magic themed books. I was also surprised by what I call my "shame books"....the Twilight and House of Night series!

I kept looking at The Memorykeepers Daughter at the bookstore, but always put it back and decided to buy something else instead. One day I finally decided to read it...and loved it. Oh, I also had no desire whatsoever to read Harry Potter or Twilight. Yeah. Loved them when I finally did!

Janet said...

I could not finish the first Harry Potter. All of my friends were into it and I was not able to read past page 30 or so. I also could not read Jonathan Frazen's "Corrections." I kept thinking, what was the big deal?

StereoQueenBee said...

Can't remember any of the names, but yes it's happened... I always read a book until the end, no matter what. Well, except for that awful time someone gave me an Ayn Rand book...

BRN2SHOP9 said...

I know that I have picked up a book and put it down because I wasn't loving it, but went back to it later and fell in love. I just can't remember which one. lol

Karie said...

This happens a lot! I'm one that gives a book 25-50 pages to hook me, and if it hasn't by then...I move on to something else. There are too many great to-reads on my list to waste time on books that can't grab me within that amount of time.

Christine in NJ said...

Midwives by Chris Bohjalian. Started it numerous times... just couldn't read it. Really disliked the beginning! Then I joined a book club and the first book I had to read: Midwives!... So NOT to upset my new club member I finally read it all... WOW! It was fanatastic!

I also had a hard time starting A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I kept putting the book down too long and then needed to re-read the beginning! Finally a friend said... Sit and read straight to page 49 (I think thats the page!) and you will NOT put the book down!... He was right. Another amazing book!

Lesley Davis, Esq said...

Room surprised me in a good way. Wicked in not such a good way :(

Tiffany Drew said...

The Hunger Games. I kept hearing people talk and talk about these books and I couldn't take it anymore so I picked up the first one. I just had to see what the fuss was about. Well, now I know! I loved these books so much I couldn't believe it.

Jeryl M. said...

I didn't like the book Wicked either. I was really looking forward to reading it because I saw the show and loved it, but I hated the book. I still read the whole thing though because once I start a book I almost always read it to the end even if I don't like it. It took me a long time to get through it though, and I didn't read the sequel.

IandSsmom said...

Well the book I'm reading down is a can't put down but I wasn't suprised because I love Tess Gerritsen and her newest is just too good! One where you think you know whats going on but really not sure!

EBrowning said...

I was a little disappointed by Eat, Pray, Love. I thought I would like it more than I did. I was even more disappointed in the movie though. I was so bored I could barely sit through the whole thing.

your invisible pixie said...

I was reading a book that I thought looked very interesting but because it was so slow it took me about three months to read it! It normally only takes me a few days to finish a book, but I just didn't want to give up. I try to finish books even if I don't like them, just in case they get better.

Amy R. said...

I loved the Hunger Games, but the 3rd book (Mockingjay) bored me to tears. I had to stop. Sorry, fans...

Read Baby Read said...

I read Unbroken, which is not in my genre of traditional favorites, and it was awesome!!

A.C. said...

I'm another who was incredibly disappointed in Wicked. I rarely give up on books, but I really just didn't care enough to finish it.

lucy0872 said...

It seems that I should have a definitive answer because I've read so many books, but I can't think of a particular one right now! Regardless - I would like to read this one!

Emily said...

I once read a book that I kept coming across on those "lists" on Amazon - everyone raved about it - it was a great beach read, one of the best books ever read, etc. etc. So, I went to my local Borders and they ordered it for me. It came in, I rushed to get it since it was allegedly so great....and it was bizarre and poorly written from the first page to the last. I wish I could remember the name of it just to warn you against picking it up!

Carly said...

I have spent days trying to think of a book that fits into the category described but I can't think of anything.

So, I'll tell you something my elementary school told me years and years ago. Never judge a book until you have read 50 pages. I follow that rule. If you can't hook me after 50 pages, I am onto the next one.

Melissa said...

There were a lot of times where I judged a book by its cover or description and ended up surprised that I waited so long to read it. I was soooo hesitant to read khaled hosseini's books but then thought they were both amazing.

I couldn't get through the first 50 pages of Harry Potter. Liked Twilight. LOVED In Malice, Quite Close. It just came out, but I think it'll be on the bestseller lists soon. If you haven't read it, and you love good writing and a good plot line, you'll love this book. It's what good books should be all about.

Kristen said...

The Hunger Games. Yes, it's young adult sci-fi. I'm usually totally chick lit. And I couldn't put them down!

Leah B said...

Absolutely! Both in a positive way and in a negative way. I always like when I am surprised by a good book that I didn't think I would like.

I'm almost always surprised by books...I am a terrible judge of covers anyway, so I always hope that it is a great read!

I'll leave my political views out but I was more or less forced to read Decision Points (George Bush bio) and I was defeinetly glad I did as it changed my mind about a few things and gave some real insight into the thought process a president must go through

I tend to prefer non-fiction, on vacation one year in Antigua, I borrowed a Clive Custer book from the hotel's library (it was in British English) and could not put it down - I stayed up all night reading it. jillfay

I was surprised at how much I loved the Dragon Girl series. I'm not one for mystery/thriller but man oh man this one just drew me in....and I am glad I picked it up. :D

Lorena Bathey said...

Yes, my recent book club pick. Wasn't sure about it but started it in the morning and finished it that night. LOVED it. And the last book they chose I hated so..there you go!

Jessica said...

I was surprised that I really liked the supernatural thriller series by Karen White. It's called The House on Tradd Street. Normally I don't like this type of book.

I cannot remember a specific book that either I didn't like or could not get into. There was a time when I would MAKE myself finish a book even if it was bad. Not anymore! Life is too short to read books that are boring! On the other hand, if I give a book a chance, sometimes it turns out better than I thought.

The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve, I hated the ending and felt like i wasted my time reading it. After that I can't bring myself to read A Pilot's Wife even though I've heard good things about it.

The last book that I picked up that I wasn't sure about. I picked up a book by John Lecaree. I wanted to expand my genres. I unfortunately was disappointed with the results.

Ich neige dazu, einen positiven Ausblick für fast jedes Buch, das ich zu beginnen, damit die Überraschung ist in der Regel für das Buch, das ich war sicher, ich möchte und am Ende hassen müssen. Wicked von Gregory Maguire war ein Beispiel dafür.
