Acts of Violet

One of my most anticipated for Summer 2022 Acts of Violet was such an interesting read! Violet Volk, one of the worlds most famous magicians disappeared almost 10 years ago, right in the middle of her comeback show. No one has been able to find a trace of her, though the conspiracy theories are everywhere….

The Lies I Tell

I really loved Julie Clark’s book The Last Flight (REVIEW) so I was very excited to get an ARC of her upcoming release The Lies I Tell. Meg Williams has gone by quite a few names over the past decade. She’s also lived quite a few lives since she’s a con artist. Meg is very…

The House Across the Lake

I was iffy on reading this one. When I read Sager’s Final Girls years ago, I adored it. I was obsessed with his book but as the books keep coming out I feel that they are getting more mediocre. Last year I skipped reading Survive the Night because I was over poorly written thrillers with…

Things We Do in the Dark

Welp, Jennifer Hillier does it again with another unputdownable thriller. Paris Peralta has rebuilt her life. That is until she’s found covered in her celebrity husband’s blood and is on trial for his murder. At the same time, Ruby Reyes who was convicted of a murder similar to Paris’ in nineties Canada. Her unlikely release…

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! Harriett, recently divorced and let go from her advertising job, hasn’t been seen in a month. Her house especially her garden,…

Midnight Dunes

Two things I love about this series: it’s set in Texas and they can each be read as standalones. While each of the books is linked through certain characters, the stories are all completely different and it’s not necessary to read the previous books to get to know our main characters. However, it is fun…

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. Even though she was acquitted, Shea Collins is the true crime writer behind the blog The Book of Cold Cases, which dives…

The Appeal

This is an interesting one y’all! Told entirely through emails and text communications we follow two young lawyers as they try to determine who might be guilty of murder based solely on emails, messages, and letters. Tasked with finding out who the real victim is and who is being imprisoned falsely, we get a glimpse…

Notes on an Execution

Ansel Packer has 12 hours left until his execution. He knows he killed those women but he never though he’d end up here on death row. He knows objectively what he did was wrong, but in another universe things might have been different. But while Ansel Packer may have murdered those women, this isn’t his…
