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 Book Case by Nelson DeMille – Short Fiction Review

It was the title of this short story that caught my attention. I recognized the (best selling) author’s name, it was free for Amazon Prime members on Kindle, and then I read the synopsis – not only is this a … Continue reading

Double Cross by Jeffery Deaver ~ Short Fiction Review

I saw this offered free on Kindle and thought to myself, “Hmm. The author who wrote The Bone Collector. The Lincoln Rhyme series. This can’t be bad.” I feel like I stand corrected. Maybe that’s too harsh. Or maybe not. … 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

The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted by Andrew E. Kaufman ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book was a surprise. The writing was good, the plot was tense, the pacing quick, and there was plenty of action. I liked it better than I expected. The characters weren’t overly endearing, but they weren’t overly annoying, either. … Continue reading

Evelyn, After by Victoria Helen Stone ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book had promise. It promised to be psychological suspense. It failed. There was never any mystery, except when the suspense would begin. What it ended up being was a woman’s midlife crisis, journey of self-discovery, and romance. I … Continue reading

Harmony by Carolyn Parkhurst ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This book is written by the author of the Dogs of Babel, and while it’s no masterpiece (it’s kind of an odd nut), it is a thought provoking glimpse into a family with a child on the autism spectrum, … Continue reading

Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  I almost bailed on this book. 25 pages in, I was overwhelmed by cars and sports and what seemed to be a book so geared towards men that testosterone was rising from the pages in waves. By 25% of … Continue reading
