Book Review: Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland

I was thrilled to be finished with this book! Not because it was fantastic and I couldn’t wait to talk about it, but because I simply wanted to be done! Continue reading “Book Review: Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland”

Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby

Does every mother hold a deep fear in her heart that one day her child could be kidnapped? I can’t imagine the heartache that parents of missing children must endure. But this story paints just such a picture, in such vivid detail, that I could very easily put myself in their place. Continue reading “Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby”

Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth

This book isn’t non-stop action, but it’s definitely another read that pulled at me from beginning to end. I used similar words to describe a book in a review last week. It fit this book as well, so I decided to use them again 🙂 Continue reading “Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth”

Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer

This one kept me guessing all the way through! Now THAT is the sign of an excellent mystery! Continue reading “Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer”

Book Review: The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

An exciting beginning but what followed didn’t quite take the story over the mountaintop. It was lacking something for this reader that would have put it over the top. Continue reading “Book Review: The Escape Room by Megan Goldin”

Book Review: The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin

Man! Oh man! It feels as if I’ve done nothing but read, review and have lackluster feelings about books in the mystery/thriller/suspense genre lately. Unfortunately, that’s not changing as I bring you a review of another lackluster book. Continue reading “Book Review: The Perfect Alibi by Phillip Margolin”

Book Review: The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald

An emotional mystery. I don’t believe I have ever used those words to describe a book in the mystery genre. Continue reading “Book Review: The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald”

Book Review: Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser

With this third novel by Strawser, I’m removing her from my must read authors list. In my opinion, each of her works has gotten progressively worse. Perhaps it’s just this reader getting picker about what grabs her? Continue reading “Book Review: Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser”
