Silent Night

Thoughts Y’all know me, I love a good solid mystery especially when I don’t figure out the ending. Silent Night is the second book in Nell Pattison’s Paige Northwood Series. Paige Northwood is a deaf translator who works with the local police department to assist in solving crimes committed against the deaf community or involving…

White Ivy

Thoughts While White Ivy started out as a three star read for me, it ended at a four star. The main reason for this is because Part 1 really dragged on for me. It was hard for me to fully understand where the story was going at first but once Part 1 laid the foundation,…

Five Total Strangers

Thoughts I’ll preface this by saying I read this book in under 3 hours on a night I couldn’t sleep. I read the whole book in quick sitting and it didn’t help me sleep afterwards either. The other thing I want to highlight is that this is a YA thriller. Meaning the key characters are…

A Rogue of One’s Own

Thoughts I loved Bringing Down the Duke last year, and knew I needed to read the second book in the League of Extraordinary Women series. This time we follow Lord Ballatine and Lady Lucie, who we met in the first book. Tristian is of course amazing in this book. He’s much deeper than we originally…

The Last Story of Mina Lee

My Thoughts Margot’s mother isn’t answering her phone. Margot’s mother, even though she only has land lines and cell phone she doesn’t know how to work, always answers the phone. When Margot shows up to surprise her mother, she finds her mother dead. While cause of death is ruled an accident, Margot is determined to…
