A Bitter Feast by Deborah Crombie – #TLCBookTours Review

  Starting a series that is now eighteen books deep can be daunting, but any reservations that I had were quickly quashed upon digging into A Bitter Feast, Deborah Crombie’s latest installment featuring Scotland Yard Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and his wife, D.I.

Smoke in Her Eyes by Anna Belfrage – #TLCBookTours Review

    When I was approached to read book two in this series for the book tour, Smoke in Her Eyes, I immediately agreed since I was already eagerly reading this book through my Kindle Unlimited membership.

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. Featuring two timelines and two first person points of view with female protagonists that are polar opposites, I highly enjoyed the manipulations […]

Once a Liar by A.F. Brady – #TLCBookTours Review

    Usually a character who is utterly despicable and seemingly unredeemable is the villain, not the main character. In A.F. Brady’s suspense novel Once a Liar, cut-throat defense attorney Peter Caine is such a horrible person throughout this book that I couldn’t believe that anyone would put up with him. But I could not […]

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 […]
