To Tell You the Truth

Thoughts Y’all this book was so addicting, I once again binged it in a night. I really need to learn to spread these books out but they get me way to worked up to not binge it! Also just in case anyone is wondering, if my husband buys me a multi-million dollar home, using the…

The Orphan’s Guilt

Thoughts Okay so this is the 31st book in the Joe Gunther series by Archer Mayor. This series is a fan favorite and while the story was good, this lacked the suspense of a police novel for me. There are also a ton of characters, which if you’ve read the rest of this series, you’re…

The Cabin on Souder Hill

Thoughts Y’all I really wanted to like this book but it was just a ★★★ for me. I only give ★ and ★★ ratings if I DNF a book and I did finish this book. The concept is really great, and I enjoyed the premise but it felt sooooo long, and it’s only 300pages! Michelle…

The Lakehouse

Thoughts Who is looking for a good mystery? If you are than The Lakehouse is perfect for you! Set in a small town in New England, this is the story of the gritty underbelly of small town suburbia. How, in a town where nobody locks their doors and the Sheriff is the only full time…

Winter Counts

My Thoughts David Heska Wanbli Weiden’s gritty debut & first in a series thriller, takes place on Dakota’s Rosebud Indian Reservation. Our massively flawed hero and recovering alcoholic, Virgil Wounded Horse, has made a career of being Rosebud’s vigilante. Taking matters into his own hands when the tribal cops & feds decline to interfere. When…

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…
