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 […]

I’m so happy to kick off the TLC Book Tour for Rebecca Crowley’s second installment in the Atlanta Skyline series, Defending Hearts. While I’m not a big fan of soccer since I grew up in the Midwest where it was a sport that just wasn’t played, what drew me to this novel was the reversal […]

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 […]
