    My reading is eclectic. I love biographies, gardening books, thrillers, astronomy, cookery books; you name it and I will read it but the ones that I love and keep in my library all have one thing in common, they have that magical “je ne sais quoi” quality that wants me to read them and read them, and keep them to read again.

To this day, I don’t know what makes a great book but I do indeed know one when I read one. The elements are good for this mystery: Based in Montreal (to me a very exotic city) Megan Scott is married to Tom and she’s trying so hard to become pregnant. She’s a ghostwriter and her husband is often travelling (that in itself is suspicious) and then suddenly he’s found murdered with her boss, Pam. Megan soon falls under suspicion with the police and also the man she is working with, crime writer, Michael Elliott. I was intrigued to find out who was the murderer and was pleasantly surprised at the end of the book. This book is very well written and I’m sure that many people will love it but it really wasn’t for me. I don’t know why – that’s all I can say. All I do think is that perhaps it needs more structure to it as for me the plot was excellent.

    I just loved FALSE IMPRESSIONS, a mystery by Sandra Nikolai. It’s got a tight story line, a strong voice, and love is in the air between its two main characters, Megan and Michael. It’s got minor characters who are exploding with jealousy and who fall over one another chasing the men they’re burning for—so what’s not to like? Ghostwriter Megan Scott becomes a suspect when her husband and his companion are found murdered.

It’s got minor characters who are exploding with jealousy and who fall over one another chasing the men they’re burning for—so what’s not to like? Ghostwriter Megan Scott becomes a suspect when her husband and his companion are found murdered. Startling evidence surfaces to implicate a young investigative reporter, Michael Elliot—who’d rather rub elbows with Montrea’s drug-dealing underbelly than live the posh lifestyle he's inherited. In order to exonerate herself, Megan is flung into Michael's dark world of criminal investigation. As Megan and Michael make a last-ditch effort to prove their innocence, the real killer closes in on them. Someone wants them out of the way and the author never lets us forget it. The book kept me sucked into the story until the end. It’s about murder and deceit, two of my favorite subjects, and there are suspects galore. But the book is also about what dislocation feels like since Megan Scott, who tells the story, deals with the shock and the anger of betrayal and we see life through her eyes. FALSE IMPRESSIONS really connected me to life. It’s a sparkling book, a book that plunked me smack dab onto the streets of Montreal with Megan and Michael, into its neighborhoods, its restaurants, its churches, its red light district, and beyond. And as a bonus, I learned how to say “electric butt cheeks” in French. I mean, what more could a reader want? If you’re into mystery and memorable characters, if you’d like a taste of the je ne sais quoi of Montreal, then FALSE IMPRESSIONS by Sandra Nikolai is a book for you.

    Seamless Plot and Escalating Suspicions Set in Montreal, this debut crime fiction novel by author Sandra Nikolai is loaded with intriguing characters that continued to hold my interest as it wove a story of a betrayed wife, Megan Scott, and a criminal investigator, Michael Elliott.

As a bit of a movie buff, I found the premise of False Impressions reminiscent of the 1999 movie Random Hearts starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas who, after their marriage partners die in a plane crash, discover that their spouses were having an affair. The similarity ends there, though. The reason I read and enjoyed False Impressions is because it focuses is on the murder mystery. The main plot also offers escalating tension by presenting the protagonist as a major suspect in the murders. The emotional repercussions on protagonist Megan Scott, of her husband's extra-marital affair and of police suspicion concerning her involvement in the murders, permeate the story on a more subtle level. The main plot and subplots in False Impressions fit together seamlessly, building suspense and creating new questions, along with doubt, as suspicion passes from one possible murderer to the next. The roles of Megan Scott and Michael Elliott are written with vivid effect, allowing the reader to develop a relationship with these characters as the story progresses. While this is essential to many stories, it is especially significant in a continuing series with its recurring cast of characters. I want to believe the protagonist has a backstory with enough depth to allow new revelations as the series progresses, along with the strength from past experiences to realistically deal with new crisis situations.

    was pleasantly surprised by this novel. While I expected the mystery to be decent, I certainly did not expect it to be something I could not put down. It definitely held my interest. Megan's husband, Tom, is a salesman and travels quite often for his job. Megan is a ghostwriter. The police arrive at Megan's home one day and inform her that her husband is dead. And that a female was found along with him. She is devastated; partly because she thought they had a happy marriage, partly because they w was pleasantly surprised by this novel.

She is devastated; partly because she thought they had a happy marriage, partly because they were attempting to conceive, and partly because the woman with him was someone she knew. Suddenly, her life is thrown into turmoil. Michael Elliott is a schoolfriend of Megan's. Because she spent a lot of time with him while trying to edit his book, and during that time, her husband was killed, the police suspect them both of plotting the murder. Now it is up to them to try and clear themselves, all the while sorting through circumstantial evidence which can certainly send them both to jail. I highly recommend this suspenseful mystery, and hope others will enjoy it as much as I did.

    This wasn't for me and I packed it in at 18%. The writing didn't come across as believable, especially in the scenes where Megan's told of her husband's death. The policemen didn't talk as I imagined they would and her reaction wasn't what it ought to be, either. All quite strange. Then she's pretty much sniffing around after someone else straightaway......it just wouldn't happen. Her constant attempts at telling her boss her job and who to fire or hire wasn't something she should've had any inv This wasn't for me and I packed it in at 18%.

Her constant attempts at telling her boss her job and who to fire or hire wasn't something she should've had any involvement in, either. That was none of her business. It seemed peculiar with Megan's profession as when she was working it seemed to me she was an editor, really, not a ghostwriter. Her and her hubby didn't discuss work or clients with each other, which was fair enough, but Megan also does something else she doesn't tell him about. So you have to wonder what they DO speak to each other about !! The weather, maybe..... I loved the dedication to her parents at the start.

    I received a copy of this book free from Goodreads First Reads. I had a hard time deciding on a rating to give this. On the one hand, I really really enjoyed reading it. It was a great mystery and it really did keep me guessing about certain things all the way through. I was correct in my suspicion of who the killer was, but I didn't know any of the details behind it, and it was really well done in how those were revealed. Plus I loved the relationship between Michael and Megan. On the other hand I received a copy of this book free from Goodreads First Reads. I had a hard time deciding on a rating to give this.

Plus I loved the relationship between Michael and Megan. On the other hand, there were scenes that I really didn't like at all. Megan's reaction to the detectives news of her husbands death felt weird and awkward. Ditto to when she went over to break the news to her mother. I also had a few annoyances with a specific thought of Megan's. Several times early in the book she said that Detective Moreau seemed hell-bent on incriminating them. However nothing in the book had indicated that yet. I believe they had met twice and the detective indicated with nothing more than body language that he considered Michael and Megan to be suspects. Which, in my opinion, would only be natural. But anyways, moving on from that. I had such a great time reading this book! I loved it, and that usually automatically gets four stars from me. However, because of these niggling little details, I am having a hard time giving it that fourth star. At the end of it all I would say that if it didn't contain these things that annoyed me (and that's just purely personal opinion) I would have given it four stars without question. So I'll settle by giving it three stars. It was a good cozy mystery, and I had trouble putting it down.

    This was a mid-pack novel in the genre. The main characters are believable with realistic motivations for getting involved, although I felt how they first met – in college years before – a bit coincidental and wasn’t really necessary for the story to work. That they didn’t fall into bed shortly after reconnecting was a plus. A minus was Nikolai got a little long-winded in her descriptions several places. The final chapter seemed a bit rushed, as if she had to get it written fast. She did, however, This was a mid-pack novel in the genre.

Montreal ghostwriter Megan Scott falls under suspicion of murdering her husband, Thomas Scott and her best friend, Pamela Strober when their bodies are found at a cottage in Pineview. The autopsy declares that they were murdered by cyanide poisoning. Detectives in charge turn to the most obvious suspect, the wife. She had the perfect motive, a cheating husband and a backstabbing friend. When they discover she was really close with her client, Michael Elliot and that he might be in on the murder, they both end up as the most likely suspects. Now, Michael and Megan must fight to prove their innocence while dealing with the threat of a real murderer. First of all, let me say that this book kept me up 'till 5.a.m. I just couldn't put it down. Just one more chapter... and then one more... and one more... but I have to know who really did it. So , I read the whole thing in one sitting. It doesn't happen that often with mystery novels where I'm concerned. It is a remarkable debut from the author, Sandra Nikolai, who will definitely end up in my shelf from now on. Now, let me turn to the characters for a bit. The heroine of the story, Megan Scott is somewhat clueless regarding her husband's work and activities. It's actually amazing how she never suspected him having affairs and spending all of their money. I didn't really liked that side of her. But, knowing how they both had busy jobs and fast paced life, I can see how that might happen. So, the other side of her was good. From a quiet, introvert woman she turned to a crime solving, murderer chasing, helping her reporter friend with his dangerous activities kind of woman. The transformation was great. She really gained much more respect from me in that regard. The hero of the story is Michael. Her reporter friend who has wealthy parents but decides to live his life doing what he loves most - reporting. To be more accurate, reporting and uncovering major drug deals in the area. So, a dangerous kind of reporting. And Megan helps him with that while they're on the road of clearing their names and finding a real murderer. There were two things I didn't like though. First one was the idea that detective Moreau was hell bent on accusing Megan and Michael of murder. The guy only appeared a couple of times, first to tell Megan that her husband was dead and then bringing Megan in for questioning and again visiting her apartment while Michael was there. So, 'till almost half of the book since almost the beginning, Megan keeps on describing how this detective has certainly done this to incriminate her, or gone there, or thought of this or certainly made up that. And the guy is nowhere to be seen. He doesn't even contact her. On p.105 Megan said: "I especially didn't want to tell her the murders had drawn not only the attention of the media but also the curiosity of one particular police detective who was prepared to pursue Michael and me to hell and back if required." The detective only did his job and she really was the most likely suspect. She had the motive and the means. I believe that was blown out of proportion a little bit. The second thing was Dan, the lawyer. Michael hired Dan for his expertise and his reputation. But throughout the book he really didn't show any of it. Everything he has done, a first year law student could have done better. And he didn't see what Jane was really like even though they spent so much time together. But... like I said, this is really a personal likeness of a character. On the plus side, I loved how Megan was thinking. Her inner monologues while she was alone or lost in her thoughts really had me thinking. Let me show you what I mean. Megan: "We humans were so naive about the danger around us. We could only speculate about how often we might have brushed against its borders as we wandered through rituals of our lives, not paying attention to strangers who crossed our paths." All in all, I really like this book. Even though I'm not a great fan of mystery / suspense genre. If it can keep me up until morning and make me make coffee at 2.a.m. so I could find out who the killer really is, then you can imagine what it can do to a true fan of the genre. I highly recommend this book to the fans of all genres for it is a universally good read.

As for the characters, I'm afraid I laughed out loud when both Emily and Jane displayed the exact same mannerisms whenever they were in Michael's presence.

    FALSE IMPRESSIONS by Canadian author Sandra Nikolai was a real gem, a nicely composed whodunit that shies away from gore and violence in favor of a dialogue-driven narrative in which the characters’ brainstorming sessions take center stage. Am I mixing metaphors? Maybe. Go buy the book. I always like reading mysteries that are set in different places and Nikolai puts the reader right in downtown Montreal, giving us a sense of the French influence as well as the shops, restaurants, subway system, FALSE IMPRESSIONS by Canadian author Sandra Nikolai was a real gem, a nicely composed whodunit that shies away from gore and violence in favor of a dialogue-driven narrative in which the characters’ brainstorming sessions take center stage. Am I mixing metaphors? Maybe. Go buy the book. I always like reading mysteries that are set in different places and Nikolai puts the reader right in downtown Montreal, giving us a sense of the French influence as well as the shops, restaurants, subway system, etc. She uses snippets of the French language accurately and to solid effect. He writing style is strong on description and dialogue and is easy to read. The plot doesn’t have bizarre twists and turns—it goes straight at the central theme which is Megan Scott’s discovery that her husband--for whom the word “cad” was coined--has been cheating on her with friends and strangers alike and suddenly ends up dead far from where he said he was going to be. She is the most likely suspect and nicely introduced details that Megan didn’t realize meant anything suddenly do. There is a love interest who is handled adroitly, Megan’s husband is recently dead, after all, and a nicely wrapped up ending. I wondered if I would categorize this as a “cozy” mystery, a category that for me usually involves a cat and something knitted. Nikolai gives us more of a clean thriller and one which many should enjoy.

    False Impressions is a top rate mystery/thriller, set in Montreal. I really liked the the way Nikolai used the characters in her story. She introduced them like paintings in an art gallery, letting me focus on which one to choose. Thus, the dilemma, which one? She sprinkled in just enough information throughout to keep me guessing, then tied it up all very neatly at the end. I highly recommend this very thoughtfully produced mystery, and cannot wait to read her next offering Fatal Whispers. Cong False Impressions is a top rate mystery/thriller, set in Montreal.

    Megan Scott has a good job, a best friend and a loving husband. Then in one cruel swoop, all of that is taken away. Megan is now a widow, practically friendless, and the prime suspect in her husband's murder. It's not long before Megan's own life is in danger. This is a deftly-crafted mystery that kept me guessing until the killer's identity was revealed. Full of beautiful descriptions of Montreal, interesting characters and grim jeopardy. A very enjoyable book and highly recommended!

    I LOVED this book! I had no clue who the killer was, it was a total surprise! I also loved that the story is in Montreal, since I live there, I could see the major places in my head. English is my second language, and it was really easy for me to follow; I even had to restrain myself from reading it too fast :) I discovered a new author, and I will buy any other books that Sandra Nikolai will write.

    False Impressions is a Film Noir style crime drama. In this respect it is about a murder, an aggrieved widow, a police investigation, the suspects, and a new romance. The heroes are the newly widowed ghost writer and her mysterious and resourceful crime reporter and writer client. False Impressions is relatively light, has a neat ending, and is good fun. I did enjoy reading it. I liked the French element of the book being set in Montreal. I understand that there are sequels as well.

    I enjoyed this book. It was a easy book to read with a lot of suspense. I will admit that I figured out the mystery fairly early on but I tend to do that with most books I read. I look forward to reading the next book in the Megan and Michael series. It was neat to read a book by an author that lives in the same general area as me.

    Only started this book on Monday but could not put it down. From page 1 to the very end you are on a rollercoaster ride with Megan and Michael. Suspicion is thrown at so many characters throughout the chapters that you do not know who is responsible until the very last second. An absolutely brilliant book and one I would definitely want to read again!
