The Mutual Admiration Society by Lesley Kagen ~ Fiction Book Review

This book was cute. Like, super cute. As in sugary sweet, warm and toasty hugs cute. I’m not usually big on cozy mysteries, but this one kept my attention with its feisty preteen characters and heavy dose of humor.  The … 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
