The Quiet Girl by S.F. Kosa – #TLCBookTours Review and Giveaway

  It’s been a while since I’ve read a psychological suspense that was predictable on the surface, but was oh so twisty-turny underneath that I loved every minute of guessing just what was going on.

Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson – #TLCBookTours Review

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 […]

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 […]
