False Step by Victoria Helen Stone – #TLCBookTours Review

    Psychological thrillers–ones whose tensions skyrocket the longer you make your way toward the end, and the characters growing more desperate for answers and scared for their lives and their situation.

What She Gave Away by Catharaine Riggs – #TLCBookTours Review

    Moving right along with my streak of completely unlikable and unsympathetic characters headlining novels, I’ve moved on to the fantastically dark and devious debut What She Gave Away by Catharine Riggs.

But I could not […]

Having really enjoyed Nicole Baart’s previous book, Little Broken Things, I was eager to read her next novel. I devoured You Were Always Mine in one day, and I was immersed in this family drama/murder mystery.
