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.

    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.

  I really loved the serial format of the Tough Justice series by authors Carla Cassidy, Tyler Anne Snell, Emmy Curtis and Janie Crouch that Harlequin published last year. Each installment blended from each one pretty seamlessly, even though each author wrote two installments in the eight part serial featuring FBI agent Lara Grant. And these […]
