By Invitation Only by Dorothea Benton Frank – #TLCBookTours Review

    Taking a refreshing turn from mysteries and thrillers, I read the charming Southern fiction book, By Invitation Only by new-to-me author Dorothea Benton Frank.

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 […]

Told from two points of view in different times: twenty-ish year-old Jesse in present day, who has […]

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 […]

But when they test her parents for stem […]
