The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn Review

The Woman in the Window by A..

Review: I had the most fun reading this story! The Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn was easily my most anticipated mystery-suspense-thriller book this season, so when it arrived in my mailbox: I squealed. Anna Fox is the book’s main character. She is so well-crafted as a character. As we meet her, we learn […]

The Girl In Times Square by ..

Review: I feel like I’m in a unique position going into The Girl In Times Square by Paullina Simons because this is my first book by this author! Sometimes I feel like I’m literally the only person left in the world that hasn’t read The Bronze Horseman or any of her other books because I see […]

Odd Child Out by Gilly Macmillan Review

Odd Child Out by Gilly Macmi..

Review: Odd Child Out is the second book in the DI Jim Clemo Series, following What She Knew. I think it would be fine to read it as a standalone, although I read it immediately following the previous book and I feel like I was better able to appreciate several references made to the previous […]

What She Knew by Gilly MacMillan Review

What She Knew by Gilly MacMi..

REVIEW: I got lost in What She Knew by Gilly MacMillan very early in the story because it hit all of the right places with me as a reader who is also a mother. I could absolutely see myself as Rachel Jenner: a woman who would never hurt her child, completely vilified by the media and the […]

Garden of Lamentations by Deborah Crombie Review

Garden of Lamentations by De..

Review: I started this series with Garden of Lamentations, which is the 17th installment. I was so nervous to do this, since I usually only start with the first book in the series, but I am really enjoying British mysteries and crime stories these days, so I figured why not? Ultimately I’m glad that I […]

Review: I love this series so much. When I picked up the first book in this series (Little Beach Street Bakery), I read it in one sitting and felt so completely happy when I was finished. I felt the exact same way when I finished with the second book (Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery). […]

This is the story of recently-divorced Brydie Benson, who moves to Memphis to be closer to her friend and finds herself in need of an a low-cost place to live.

The Fire By Night by Teresa Messineo Review

The Fire By Night by Teresa ..

Review: The Fire By Night by Teresa Messineo caught my eye mainly because it is the story of two American nurses that enlisted to serve during World War II: Jo was sent to The Western Front and Kay served at Pearl Harbor. I’m especially interested in these wartime, frontline nurses because I am a nurse […]

The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash Review

The Last Ballad by Wiley Cas..

REVIEW: When I first saw the advanced copies for The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash being circulated months ago, I got so excited. His books are among my very-favorites. His stories are always so layered and his characters sometimes seem so straightforward but they’re actually really complex. And I love the way they’re set in […]
