I loved the opening lines of this book. Attention grabbing from the very beginning. Continue reading “Book Review: Bring Her Home by David Bell”

Book Review: A Talent for Murder by Andrew Wilson

Having only read two of Agatha Christie’s books, I’m far from being an expert on her books or personal life. It came as a surprise to me that she disappeared for several days in 1926. That fact alone led me to request A Talent for Murder from NetGalley. Andrew Wilson takes Christie’s odd disappearance in 1926 and weaves a story around this still unsolved mystery.   Continue reading “Book Review: A Talent for Murder by Andrew Wilson”

Book Review: You Will Pay by Lisa Jackson

I’m getting older and my memory isn’t what it used to be. I’m finding it harder and harder to keep track of the characters in books. You Will Pay had so many characters that my head was often spinning with the effort to keep track of who was who and what their story was.

Book Review: The Reminders by Val Emmich

How does a book earn a 3-star rating? For me, it’s a book I enjoyed reading but one that doesn’t make me FEEL and is not one I rush to read again. Val Emmich’s The Reminders fits the criteria here for a 3-star read. Continue reading “Book Review: The Reminders by Val Emmich”
