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

The Good Samaritan by John Marrs ~ #BookReview

I believe it’s fair to say that this is an uncomfortable story. I haven’t read anything with a similar premise before. It felt plausible. Uncomfortably so. In the same strange way that people tend to rubberneck as they pass a … Continue reading

In a Cottage in a Wood by Cass Green ~ #Mystery #BookReview

When I began this book, I felt like a peeper. It was TMI (too much information) too soon. Personal information. I didn’t know this character yet. It felt like a boundary was being crossed. It’s strange to admit, but I … Continue reading

Pretty Girls Dancing by Kylie Brant ~ #Mystery #BookReview

You’ve gotta love a book where all of the characters are damaged, everyone writhing under the constraints of their own demons as they struggle just to make it through the day. For some reason, these types of books always seem … Continue reading

My Sister’s Grave by Robert Dugoni ~ Fiction #BookReview

I have mixed feelings about this book. Parts of it aren’t entirely believable, but people are unpredictable and the book is fiction, so . . . might as well just go with it. Maybe a Chemistry teacher really would become … Continue reading

Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot #39) ~ #Mystery #BookReview

If I had to name my first ‘literary hero’, the first author whose books I read that made me jealous, that made me think to myself, “This. Is. It. This is what I need to do. I need to write … Continue reading

Killman Creek by Rachel Caine ~ Fiction #BookReview

This is the second installment of the Stillhouse Lake trilogy that I had been so anxiously awaiting. The first book completely blew me away. I couldn’t say enough good things about it. Which made it especially disappointing that this one … Continue reading

The Silent Girls by Eric Rickstad ~ Fiction #BookReview

This book bursts out of the gate at a full sprint, and doesn’t let up as surprise after surprise confronts the reader. There were times when I had no idea who to suspect (and I’m suspicious by nature – I … Continue reading
