Malibu Rising

I adore Taylor Jenkin Reid’s book The Seven Husband’s of Evelyn Hugo. It’s one of my all time favorite and most recommended reads. When Daisy Jones and the Six came out in 2019, I jumped to get my hands on a copy, and while it was a fun read it was never a favorite of…

Paper & Blood

If you read my review of Ink & Sigil, the first book in this series, you’ll know I loved this series and book 2 did not disappoint. See my review for Ink & Sigil HERE. In Paper& Blood, Al MacBharrais is back along with Buck Foi (a whiskey obsessed hobgoblin), Gladys Who Has Seen Some…

People We Meet on Vacation

Last year Emily Henry’s release adult targeted book, Beach Read, was a favorite summer read for me and you can see my review for it HERE. Written in a similar style People We Meet on Vacation is more optimistic than it’s predecessor Beach Read which while it was a contemporary romance, it dived into some…

What Comes After

Firstly, this is categories as a Mystery/Thriller, and I just want to clarify that while at it’s core this is a murder mystery, it’s more the motive behind the murder than a whodunnit. I also would never categorize this book as a Thriller. Going into this book with expectations of a fast paced, thriller will…

House of Hollow

House of Hollow is one of those books that once it sinks it’s teeth in you, you cannot stop reading. Which is exactly how I came to binge this book in an afternoon when I should have been doing far more productive things. This is also one of those books that makes me question the…

The Babysitter

Wow! That’s what I have to say about this wonderfully written non-fiction. Part true crime and part memoir, Liza Rodman along with Jennifer Jordan, depict the events that unfurled in Cape Cod in the mid 60’s. Known as the Vampire of Cape Cod, Tony Costa was behind the murders of at least 5 women in…

Before She Disappeared

This is actually my first Lisa Gardner book and it certainly will not be my last. Frankie Elkin is a recovering alcoholic who has stumbled into a new addiction. Finding missing people, no matter what the cost. Based upon real people who search for the missing for nothing other than to give families answers, Gardner…

Finlay Donovan is Killing It

Soon to be divorce mom and writer, Finlay Donovan, is about to lose it. Not only is her husband divorcing her for his mistress, but she’s on the verge of losing her children, has been mistaken for a hitman, writer’s block has set in, and she’s just killed a man, or at least she thinks…

The Burning Girls

It’s no secret that C.J. Tudor has quickly become one of my auto-buy authors. So when this turned up in my Netgalley account, with no notice, and a week before the publication date; you know I dropped all my other reading plans to jump into this story! I first read C.J. Tudor back in 2018…
