Hilde at the Ghost Shore by Paula Cappa ~ Short Fiction Review

A good short story should leave a reader who is also a writer breathless to create their own next piece of short fiction, and this story did exactly that for me! It’s not really my style – mixing in blatant elements … Continue reading

Not a Sound by Heather Gudenkauf ~ Fiction Book Review

 I’ve had mixed feelings about Heather Gudenkauf’s last few books. I love love LOVED The Weight of Silence. I quite liked a few of her following books. But as she transitions from a kind of literary fiction to a more … Continue reading

Blue Ringed Octopus Delight by James W Brown ~ Short Fiction Review

While the premise of this story was certainly interesting, I love the title, and I enjoyed the story, I can’t say that I’ll be reading the novel that this short story was an intro for. The main character is fun – … Continue reading

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware ~ Fiction Book Review

I’ve been a big fan of Ruth Ware since her debut book, In a Dark, Dark Wood found it’s way into my hand. Her next book was a bit of a departure from the first, good, but a little far fetched … Continue reading

The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen ~ Fiction Book Review

Here’s another book that I got for free on my Kindle that turned out to be a score. It was a nice change of pace from my normal reads. No great mystery, no harrowing suspense, just a story about people – a story that … Continue reading

Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine ~ Fiction Book Review

This book was the change in a tide of what seemed like an insufferably long string of duds. It left me wondering who this author was, and where she’d been all my life. Not that it’s the most spectacular thing … Continue reading

Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson ~ Fiction Book Review

This author’s The Kind Worth Killing was fantastic. Like, super awesome, wish I had written it first fantastic, even though it lost the teeniest bit of steam in the end. In this one, the author mastered suspense and atmosphere. If … Continue reading

Truly, Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty ~ Fiction Book Review

Hmmm. My first introduction to Liane Moriarty was the book “Big Little Lies”, which I seem to remember really enjoying. This is the fourth book I’ve read by Moriarty now, and I’ve got to say, I have mixed feelings about … Continue reading
