The Sound of Rain – Gregg Olsen
Book Reviews / 17 January 2018

Holy crows, The Sound of Rain by Gregg Olsen is twister than my intestines on the day after Thanksgiving. What. The. Hell. Just. Happened?

Nicole Foster – if she wasn’t in need of therapy at the beginning of this book, she sure will be needing it by the end. Oh. My. Gosh.

Nicole is down on her luck. She has a gambling addiction; she’s lost her job, her pup, her ass-hat boyfriend (ok, not much of a loss there), and is sleeping at a women’s shelter because her sister is a witch who won’t allow her to stay over more than one night.

If that’s enough to make one cray-cray, then just wait until you see what happens in this book! Holy moly. (There’s a lot of holies in this review!).

A Dark Lure – Loreth Anne White
Book Reviews / 28 November 2017

A Dark Lure by Loreth Anne White is a harrowing story of pain, survival, and new beginnings. That seems neat and tidy, but it’s not. It’s a windy, intricate story.

I listened to the Audible version of A Dark Lure, and when I initially saw it was 14 hours, I groaned. BUT I was committed to the blurb and reviews, so I started listening. In my experience, 14 hours of audio typically means three collective hours of minutia. I was very pleasantly surprised. A Dark Lure was all story all the way through to the end. Sure, there’s some background info – what story doesn’t have that? But the background info was just enough to be exciting and not so much that it dragged. Great balance!

Welcome back to Chris from Buried, #3. Chris is at his remote cabin in the Cascade Mountains during a brutal snowstorm. During his stay, he discovers Gianna and her 16-year-old daughter, Violet, huddled in an SUV. Having escaped from the harrowing ordeal of their vacation rental cabin burning down, Violet is found nursing her mother, who was violently ill all night.

As we know from Buried, Chris knows what burnt flesh smells like. And there was a strong odor of burnt flesh in that cabin. Low and behold, a charred body was found.
