When the Stars Go Dark

It’s no secret that Paula McLain is a masterful author. Her books always seem to completely captive me and her newest release When the Stars Go Dark is no exception. Just like one of my recent reads What Comes After, at the heart of this story it is a mystery. There is a detective and…

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 Silent Suspect

The third installment in the Paige Northwood series and honestly my least favorite so far. See my review HERE for Silent Night. Paige Northwood is a British Sign Language interrupter. While she was an interpreter for the police department in the first two books, she’s now landed a job as an interpreter for Social Worker,…

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…

All Girls

Raise you’re hand if you went to an all girls school for high school! I did and honestly I think it really influenced my rating on this story. At it’s core All Girls is a coming of age story that takes place at a prestigious all girls boarding school. Set in 2015 but highly influenced…

The Lost Apothecary

Historical Fiction and a mystery all rolled into one? Sign me up! The Lost Apothecary Told from three different women’s perspectives and between two different time periods, The Lost Apothecary was an excellent read! Caroline was suppose to be in London on her ten year anniversary trip but life had other plans for her. Instead…

It’s been fifteen years since their teenage son Ray-Ray was killed in a police shooting and left an emptiness within the Echota family. Told from multiple POVs, Maria the mother, Sonja the older sister, Edgar the younger brother, and Tsala a Cherokee prophet; this is a story of grief and how it has shaped and…
