The Change

This book may be close to 500 pages but I still managed to binge it in 24 hour. While not entirely what I was expecting, this genre-defying book is easily a five star read!

The Book of Cold Cases

I’m a huge Simone St. James fan. I really enjoy her mixture of mystery with the references to paranormal. 40 years ago Beth Greer was tired and acquitted of the Lady Killer Murders.

One Step too Far

I read Before She Disappeared earlier this year, and it was my very first Lisa Gardner book. I loved it and was determined to read more from Gardner. I actually didn’t get around to any of her backlist this year, but I did find out that Frankie Elkin was coming back and I was stoked!…
