This was fucking fantastic. The tone reminded me a little of We Were Liars or Little Fires Everywhere (I think the doom of fire brings a very distinctly mysterious element to books), but it was also just fabulous on its own right. A story of family and love and what it means to be a parent, but also a story of mystery and a little intrigue. I loved it.

Malibu Rising is a masterpiece.
I fell in love with the multiple storylines from different characters and years - the back and forth, finding all the connections was incredible to read.
As my first TJR novel, I had high expectations and Malibu Rising certainly exceeded them! I loved the Riva family, full of all their drama, pain, and sorrow - they are absolutely magnetic!
A wonderful read that I’d recommend to many!
