Hero’s Return by B.J. Daniels – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

I’ve really enjoyed reading a wider variety of books these past months, but one thing that a lot of them have in common is an intriguing mystery that hooks the reader in and takes them for a ride. Hero’s Return is no exception with a fantastic mystery, and there’s a lot of suspense as well in this […]

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 […]

Little Broken Things by Nicole Baart – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  Little Broken Things is a suspenseful, entrancing family drama that had me engaged from the very first word until the last page. Told from the perspectives of the three Stanford women: 60-something and recently widowed mother Liz, older sister Nora, and 26-year-old Quinn tell the story of their lives changing from the entrance of […]

Thief’s Mark by Carla Neggers – Review and Giveaway

I love mysteries that are fast-paced with ever-mounting tension and high stakes. The book blurb for Carla Neggers’ latest installment in the Sharpe and Donovan series promised all of those things, but sadly fell flat for me as I tackled my first novel by this author. While there was a lot of backstory revealed for […]

The Quiet Child by John Burley – #TLCBookTours Review #TheQuietChild

  Continuing my streak of reading new-to-me authors this summer, I read John Burley’s third novel for the TLC Book Tour stop for the psychological thriller The Quiet Child. Set in 1954 in small town Cottonwood, California, six-year-old Danny and ten-year-old Sean McCray are abducted by a stranger while their father science teacher Michael is […]

Betrayal at Iga by Susan Spann – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  I love mysteries of all kinds, and Betrayal at Iga is the first mystery that I’ve read that was set in 1500s Japan. While the author does write with quite a bit of historical accuracy when it comes to naming conventions and terms for that era, Susan Spann’s writing doesn’t feel too dated in […]

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 […]

Red Leaves by Paullina Simons – #TLCBookTours Review

  Red Leaves focuses on a group of four friends in their senior year at Dartmouth College, and their seemingly perfect relationships and friendships that have frayed to the breaking point until one of them ends up dead right before Thanksgiving in 1993. The first third of the book is told in Kristina Kim’s point […]

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, […]
