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 […]

You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart – #TLCBookTours Review

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. School teacher Jessica and family practitioner Evan have been separated for several months, sharing custody of their older biological […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dangerous Ends by Alex Segura – #TLCBookTours Review

  I haven’t read a hard-boiled, noir-ish detective novel in a while, and Alex Segura’s Dangerous Ends hit all the right notes when it comes to my must-have list in these types of books. Brave yet borderline stupidly fearless main character whose sense of justice and right and wrong drives him to investigate no matter how […]

Another Man’s Ground by Claire Booth – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

    I really enjoyed Claire Booth’s debut novel The Branson Beauty, and I’ve been looking out for the follow up ever since. Having solved the murder of the popular, pretty young woman in the previous book, Hank thinks that he should be able to keep being sheriff and live a quiet existence in Branson […]

Mississippi Blood by Greg Iles – Review and Giveaway

    When I received the third and final installment in the Natchez Burning series, Mississippi Blood,  I held the hefty tome in my hands and almost dreaded carrying it around in my handbag to read it on my daily train commutes to and from work. Having lugged a hefty 800-plus pager around in the first book, […]

The Drifter by Christine Lennon – Review and Giveaway

    If you crack open the pages of The Drifter expecting a murder mystery, you’ll be a bit disappointed. It’s stated in black and white in the back cover blurb that former sorority girl Betsy and her two best friends experience a horrible act of violence while in their last year of college in Gainesville, […]

Natchez Burning by Greg Iles – Blog Tour Review and Giveaway

    Natchez Burning is quite a hefty tome–to the tune of 816 pages in the paperback–and I found myself wondering what I’d gotten myself into when I cracked open the spine. But I was drawn into the world of Penn Cage, mayor of Natchez, Mississippi, and his crusade to clear the name of his doctor father […]
