Truly Unfortunate
Welcome to Knollville
Book 1
C. A. King
☆☆☆☆☆
This is a full length novel that includes a paranormal, psychological murder mystery.

Truly has lost her memory of all that happened as a child. She is under Doctors care and he is trying to help her remember. The nightmares are speaking to her and she just does not understand who or why. She works 3 jobs, and still can’t seem to make ends meet. Not to mention the abuse she has to put up with is getting the best of her.

Jeff is a detective, his goal is to find out about the death of a classmate at the young age of 9. Now more “accidents“ are happening. Following the fortunes the bodies are found with. Are they accidents or murder? Who is involved?

C. A. King has built this story up and kept me reading. The characters are well suited for their parts in this book. The suspense is so twisted,it even had me second guessing what is really happening. I love a story that keeps me drawn in. This will definitely make you want more. I’m looking forward to see where the next book takes us. Well Done C. A. King!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truly Unfortunate by C. A. King is a five star novel. I have read other books by this author and have loved them all. Even though this is not the normal genre of books that I read, her writing style is fantastic and makes the reader really need to know what is going to happen next. The book continues to go back and forth in time from when Truly was a child and then as she is a twenty something. When Truly is growing up, she feels like she doesn’t belong and no one likes her. The kids at school are brutal. When one of them has an accident and dies, no one thinks twice about it. The girl who died was the typical mean girl and everyone just thought it was fate for something terrible to befall her. But then other people in Truly’s life start dying too. Now it is time to find out if Truly has something to do with it or not. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series when the author returns!

TRULY UNFORTUNATE(welcome to knollville book 1) By C. A. King

Four Stars

Truly Unfortunate was a unique and slightly twisted read. You have this character Truly who has no memory and is surrounded by bad luck. She did everything she could to stay on a good path. There was always someone there putting her down. I was shocked when all the crazy deaths started happening. But was excited for the twist the author threw in the book. I am a firm believer in karma. I think the punishment for the characters crime was extreme but they were wrong. The only thing I wish was different was the details about Truly. She really had no personality and we don’t really get to know her. But I did see the point the author was making this was a story about a mysterious town. I say read this story because it’s a little twisted and if you have a dry or dark sense of humor it’s perfect.

Truly Unfortunate (Welcome To Knollville Book 1)Truly Unfortunate by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truly Unfortunate by C.A. King is the first book in the new series Welcome to Knollville. Truly doesn’t remember her childhood and is struggling to pay for counseling to hopefully unlock the secrets of her life. Jeff is a police officer and he is seeing a pattern in some cases that he is working on.
This is a spooky at times but definitely intriguing book. There is a paranormal thriller that I didn’t want to put down. I was intrigued by the moment I started and wanted to find out Truly’s story. She is a great character. As usual C.A. King sets up a great story with plenty of detail to give a clear image of everything and everyone. I am so happy to have a new series to start that King is writing. I look forward to see where the series goes.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Truly Unfortunate” is the first book in the Welcome to Knollville series by C.A King. C.A King’s newest fascinating character is Truly. She doesn’t remember anything from her childhood and works three jobs just to pay for her crappy apartment and the therapy she needs. Strange events start to occur in her small town of Knollville and Knoll County’s most skeptical police officer, Jeff, is on the case. I was so excited when this book got released since I am a HUGE fan of C.A King and her Portal Prophecies series. C.A King has an incredible talent of creating these other worlds and interesting characters that I wish I could visit. Every book I have read, and there have been several now, are wildly imaginative and unpredictable in every sense. C.A King is one of those authors whose brain I wish I could peer into and see how she sees life. Her imagination and creativity never cease to amaze me. I am so excited for more of this series to come out so I can continue to love them, as I know I will. Five obvious stars from me! Now to download a bunch more of her books to tide me over until more Welcome to Knollville books come out!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truly Unfortunate by C.A. King a thrilling five-star read. This is the first book in the Welcome to Knollville series and what a start, I have read this author before, but this novel seemed in a league of its own. The phycological thriller aspect of the read keeps you so hooked that your heart will be in your throat and your heart will be pumping out of your chest. Then there is the world building and drama and the plot, agggghh I don’t know what to say about that as I don’t want to spoil it for when you read this amazing story. Truly has a story that you need to hear, so go read this novel to hear it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Truly Unfortunate ( Welcome to Knollville Book 1) by C. A. King. This was such a good book. Its not my normal genre but I really enjoyed it. Truly is a damaged young lady who can’t remember her past since the age of 9. Her childhood was very traumatizing and sad. Her mom didn’t love her and she never had a real father so she was pretty much on her own. As an adult life was just as hard, working 3 jobs to try to make rent and also paying for therapy. Jeff has always wanted to be a detective. He was saddened by a classmates death at the age of 9 so he vowed he would do what he could to help others. When Truly and Jeff’s worlds collide thru a series of unfortunate accidents the fact that they share a lot more in common will emerge. This is a super fast read and leaves you with great questions. Can’t wait to read more in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truly Unfortunate is book one in the Welcome to Knollville series by C.A. King. I have not read a story by this author, and it took me by surprise. I did not anticipate the high quality of the story, the depth to each character, the complex and intriguing way the characters joined
together to make a suspenseful dramatic tale. It was a brilliant paranormal saga and one I enjoyed more than I imagined I would.

Truly was a character I instantly felt bonded with. There was no getting to know you stage, I instantly felt attuned to her. She enthralled me. I just had to know her story. The author has this maddeningly clever way of giving a clue of what may happen next, without really telling you anything. It was genius. Truly Unforgettable was a one sitting read and one I truly will not forget. 5 stars.

Truly Unfortunate by C. A King

4-Stars

Truly was an interesting and determined main character of this novel. She worked three jobs just to make ends meet and was unable to recall her childhood. I was fascinated with her time spent at her doctor’s office attempting to regain those memories. I hated the amount of suffering she dealt with as a child. It broke my heart. I was intrigued with Jeff’s character as he worked to find the correlation of accidents happening and Truly’s past. I did not expect what happened at the end. Great novel!
