Trespassing by Brandi Reeds ~ #Mystery #BookReview

I could not put this book down! There were so many different directions that the author could take with the plot, and I couldn’t rest until I knew where she was taking me (the reader) on this wild journey. I’m … Continue reading

Looking Glass by Andrew Mayne ~ #Mystery #BookReview

This book is the second in the Naturalist series. I was in awe of the first book – the main character was delightfully awkward and strange. He’s more comfortable with himself and more mainstream in this book, but still enjoyable. … Continue reading

I picked this up because the premise of the book sounded interesting. Happily, I wasn’t disappointed – I couldn’t put it down. The author wrote it in a way that allowed the reader endless theories, and I had to find … Continue reading

Beware the Past by Joy Ellis ~ #Mystery #BookReview

Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner ~ #Mystery #BookReview

The premise of this story, while not new or fresh, was interesting. (It’s in the title, so I won’t consider it a spoiler to say that a young woman goes missing. Surprise!) The writing, pacing, and characters were all good. … Continue reading
