Book Review: Spellbinder by Thea Harrison

Spellbinder is book 2 in the Moonshadow trilogy by Thea Harrison. I absolutely loved the Elder Races series and this is a spin off of that series.

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.

Book Review: The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

More twists and turns than the curviest back road you can image! What happened to Sarah Cook? That’s what PI Roxane Weary is charged with finding out. Continue reading “Book Review: The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka”

MatchUp is the follow-up to 2014’s FaceOff and teams up a female thriller writer with a male thriller writer. One of each writer’s main characters will pair up for a bit of mystery solving. Continue reading “Book Review: MatchUp Anthology”

Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

A well-written and compelling story. This is the first book I’ve read by Wingate and I’ll be checking out more of her work. Continue reading “Book Review: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate”
