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

Z-Minus by Perrin Briar ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

  This one was surprisingly fun! It’s not a book I would have normally picked up, but I needed a title that started with Z for my #LitsyAtoZ challenge, and this one was a free Kindle download, so I figured, … 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

Summit Lake by Charlie Donlea ~ Fiction Book Review

This is a by-the-book-mystery, which I feel like I come across very rarely lately. As a mystery lover, this book didn’t appeal to me just because it stuck to the formula as much as all aspects of the formula were … Continue reading

The Girl Who Lied by Sue Fortin ~ Fiction Book Review

Put any variation of the word lie in a title and you’ve got my attention. I like reading about lies. Lies are usually told out of desperation to conceal dirty little secrets. Dark, tasty little tidbits that the characters would rather … Continue reading
