He Said/She Said – Erin Kelly
Book Reviews / 29 May 2017

Holy twisty batman, can Erin Kelly weave a web of lies. Almost all of the main characters are hiding something. Some we know up front, some we find out later. Just wait for later… wow.

The very last sentence was the final twist. It is by far the best last sentence I recall ever reading. As I approached the ending, I had this pegged as a 4 star book in my head. But the final sentence made this a clear 5 star winner.

Liar – K.L. Slater
Book Reviews / 24 May 2017

K.L. Slater’s portrayal of the mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship in turmoil in Liar was… woah. Judi and Amber… woah.

I found this book to be easily understandable and a quick read. By the end, everything was topsy-turvy – I had an inkling of what was going on… but there was way more to it than I thought and just wow.

Silent Scream – Angela Marsons
Book Reviews / 21 May 2017

This is the first book I’ve read by Angela Marsons and I am SO glad that there are 5 more books in this series! *happy dance*

Although Angela Marsons’ books came out earlier, I read (and LOVED) Patricia Gibney’s Lottie Parker series first – and these books are very similar in style. So if you’ve read Patricia Gibney and loved her, then run (don’t walk!) to collect Angels Marsons’ Kim Stone book series!

The Serial Killer’s Daughter by Lesley Welsh
Book Reviews / 18 May 2017

The Serial Killer’s Daughter by Lesley Welsh was a most enjoyable book to read.

I would have preferred that the book hat a different title. By going in blind to the fact that, well… her dad is a serial killer. That fact is not revealed initially… Dad is weird, raunchy, creepy. Dad clearly has secrets, however, there are all kinds of dirty deeds that could have been hidden. I might have even been a little surprised to find that he was a serial killer. If it weren’t for the title, I was thinking along the lines of sexual predator. That aside. I loved this book. It kept me wondering what was going to happen next and I love all of the flaws that the characters have. Fooled and duped by the serial killer’s daughter’s dad and loving him anyway!

The Stolen Girls – Patricia Gibney
Book Reviews / 14 May 2017

This is the 2nd novel by Patricia Gibney. It follows her amazing debut, The Missing Ones. I gave The Missing Ones 5 stars, and I liked this one even better… but alas, goodreads won’t let me give it 6 stars.

Welcome back to Lottie, Boyd, Kirby and company!  Ignoring the plot for a second, one of my favorite things was delving further into these characters lives.  I enjoy their personal stories as much as the plot of the book.

The Darkest Lies by Barbara Copperthwaite
Book Reviews / 9 May 2017

Despite the fact that I enjoyed The Darkest Lies by Barbara Copperhwaite, this is a difficult review to write. Let me start out by saying I loved the story… It kept me engaged throughout the entire book. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Even though I had guessed the who the “bad guy” was at 51%, imagine my surprise when I realized I tied that “bad guy” to the wrong “bad thing”.
