By Invitation Only by Dorothea Benton Frank – #TLCBookTours Review

    Taking a refreshing turn from mysteries and thrillers, I read the charming Southern fiction book, By Invitation Only by new-to-me author Dorothea Benton Frank. After a few chapters, I was enchanted by the South Carolina setting where mother Diane struggles to pull together an engagement party for her only son Fred, who just […]

Once a Liar by A.F. Brady – #TLCBookTours Review

    Usually a character who is utterly despicable and seemingly unredeemable is the villain, not the main character. In A.F. 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 […]

I’ve never read a Denise Hunter book, but I was instantly drawn into the small southern community […]

It Takes Death to Reach a Star by Stu Jones and Gareth Worthington – #TLCBookTours Review

  Wow. Just wow. I haven’t read anything sci-fi or dystopian in a while, so I had zero expectations going in to It Takes Death to Reach a Star by Stu Jones and Gareth Worthington. The blurb sounded interesting and what I found inside of the pages was phenomenally well-thought out, researched, and executed. Set two […]

Good Neighbors by Joanne Serling – #TLCBookTours Review

  In Joanne Serling’s debut novel, Good Neighbors, four suburban families strive to put up a perfect front for each other, all while hiding secrets that could shatter this perfect image. Told from the point of view of Nicole, a stay-at-home mother to two grade-school-aged boys and wife to a perfectionist husband, the seemingly tight […]

The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel – #TLCBookTours Review

The promise of world travel and an emotional journey for the characters what drew me to The Heart Between Us, and I really enjoyed this story of estranged twin sisters traveling together. While this is a Christian fiction book, the heavier questions about trusting God and believing that he had plans for the characters didn’t really show up […]
