The Hiding Place by C.J. Tudor – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

    I really enjoyed C.J. Tudor’s debut dark mystery/thriller, The Chalk Man, and I eagerly opened the pages of her new stand alone novel The Hiding Place. Like her earlier novel, The Hiding Place is dark, gritty, and full of flawed characters trying to live their lives–and not being that successful at it. Joe […]

The Widows by Jess Montgomery – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I took a little break from reading and blogging to end 2018, to refresh my batteries from the stresses of a busy work schedule along with a very full home life with nightly martial arts commitments for both my son and I. The stresses haven’t exactly gone away with a government shutdown (where I’m […]

The Boy at the Keyhole by Stephen Giles – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  With cooler nights finally coming around here in Northern Illinois, a little Gothic suspense sounded good with the impending change in season–and Stephen Giles’ The Boy at the Keyhole certainly fit the bill. Set in the early 1960s in small town England, nine-year-old Samuel wants nothing more than for his mother to return home […]

Good Time Cowboy by Maisey Yates – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

    There’s just something about the worlds that Maisey Yates creates, featuring characters in two picturesque Oregon towns of Gold Valley and Copper Ridge, that grabs my attention and has me interested from the start. Her romances always feature a fiesty heroine and a smooth talking cowboy, but both always have their problems and […]

When We Found Home by Susan Mallery – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I’m always blown away by how quickly I get immersed in the worlds that Susan Mallery creates. Within just a few pages, I felt right at home with the characters and Pacific Northwest setting, and it was no different with her latest stand alone novel, When We Found Home. Focusing on three half-siblings who […]

The Garden of Blue Roses by Michael Barsa – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

I really enjoy psychological horror, and it’s been some time since I’ve delved into one. Michael Barsa’s debut, The Garden of Blue Roses looks deep at the adult son and daughter of a famous horror writer, just after their parents died in a car accident. While it was deemed an accident, the question remains to […]

The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

I love thrillers, and The Chalk Man by debut author C.J. Tudor hit all the right notes for me. I thoroughly enjoyed following Eddie, his friends, and their parents back and forth from 1986 to 2016. This thriller has comedic hits, dark humor, characters who are mostly shades of gray, and a protagonist that is far from […]
