When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica – #TLCBookTours Review

Thrillers and suspense are my favorite, and psychological suspense hold a special place in my heart. When the Lights Go Out is haunting, tense at times, beautiful, and heartbreaking throughout, and it certainly held my attention throughout the entire book. 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 […]

Honeysuckle Dreams by Denise Hunter – #TLCBookTours Review

  Honeysuckle Dreams is a great novel about friends entering into a marriage of convenience, and in this case it’s so a father can gain custody of the child that he thought was his from his now deceased ex-wife. I’ve never read a Denise Hunter book, but I was instantly drawn into the small southern community […]

A Handbook for Beautiful People by Jennifer Spruit – #TLCBookTours Review

  I don’t think that I’ve read anything as raw, gritty, or gut-wrenchingly helpless and emotional as A Handbook for Beautiful People. Featuring Marla, a twenty-two year-old woman who has partial fetal alcohol syndrome thanks to an alcoholic/drug abusing mother who practically abandoned her and her deaf brother to foster care when they were young, […]

Blackout by @Alex Segura – @TLCBookTours Review

  After reading a lot of contemporary fiction geared towards women lately, I didn’t know how much I needed to sink my teeth into a gritty, hard-boiled thrilling mystery. Alex Segura’s last installment in the Pete Fernandez Mystery series, Dangerous Ends, was my first introduction to this fantastically rich and dirty look at the seedy underbelly […]

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 […]
