Review: The Lying Kind by Alison James

What a great investigative mystery that The Lying Kind delivered! From the beginning I was invested in this case and not just because of the mystery of it all, even though that was such a draw for me. There was a great dynamic between all the characters in this story, especially between Detective Inspector Rachel Prince and her partner Detective Sargent Mark Brickall. They were a great duo and all […]

Review: City of Endless Night by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

City of Endless Night is the seventeenth book in the Pendergast series and it was a thrilling read! The start of this story snagged my interest mostly because I was wondering what the heck the kids had to do with anything related to the story. That was until they discovered a body in the oddest of places and the victim’s head was nowhere to be found. Then I was very […]

Review: The Devil’s Song by Lauren Stahl

When I picked up this book, The Devil’s Song, I was intrigued with the story from the start. I immediately wanted to find out what had happened in main character Kate Magda’s past. Her memories gripped my imagination and I needed to know more. Kate was an assistant district attorney and she was completely committed to her job as a prosecutor. She also deeply desired to be a part of […]

Review: A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn

A Treacherous Curse is the third book in the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series and I am very happy that it won’t be the last! Especially with how this book ended! In this story both Veronica and Stoker have come to terms, for the most part, with their disappointment that their scheduled expedition was cancelled due to the Earl of Rosemorran having hurt himself when he tripped over his tortoise. Even […]

Review: Gone on Sunday: A Cotton Lee Historical Mystery by Tower Lowe

Gone on Sunday: A Cotton Lee Historical Mystery is the first book in its series. It was an engaging read that took me on a journey through the lives and secrets of the residents in Homeville, Virginia. Cotton Lee was a woman who was smart and beautiful but was basically disregarded due to that fact that she was left with a disfigured leg and limp from having contracted polio when […]

Review: Sins of the Fathers by A.J. McCarthy

Sins of the Fathers was a nicely done mystery that had elements of intrigue, suspense, and danger. The main character Charlene Butler owns a pub that she adores and everything in her life was as it should be. Though, due to her commitment to her business she did not have many close relationships with the exception of her employee Frank but she was okay with that. So, when she received […]

Review: The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell

The Romanov Ransom is the ninth book in the Fargo Adventure series and it is co-written with Robin Burcell. I will say that I do enjoy the pairing of Cussler and Burcell! The story is very well developed and I enjoyed the many location that this story takes us to. From the title, you would presume that this story is set around the Romanov family and set in Russia but this […]

Review: Mischief in Mudbug by Jana Deleon

I am a huge fan of Author Jana Deleon’s cozy mysteries. Mischief in Mudbug was no exception. Sabine’s character was introduced in book one of this series and I liked her immensely. In this story, things take a turn for the worst for Sabine’s character and even though she had failed to find any family members over the past decade, she really needs to now. Sabine has had health scares […]

Review: Die Before You Wake by D.A. Bale

Die Before You Wake is the fourth book in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I really enjoyed the changes that have taken place for this cast of characters. This series follows Vicki Bohanan through a series of misadventures where she manages to get herself in some crazy and life-threatening situations. Definitely no shortage of humor and snark in this series and I love it! With the help of her best […]

Review: Flamingo Road by Sasscer Hill

I bought Flamingo Road a few months past because it looked like an interesting book. I was intrigued that it revolved around crime, horses, and the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. The TRPB is a real agency, which I knew absolutely nothing about before I read this book. If you want to check it out here is a LINK to the home page of the organization. Pretty cool, right? Fia McKee […]

Mini-Review: The Late Show by Michael Connelly

I was excited to read The Late Show because I am a fan of the Harry Bosch series and was looking forward to reading a story with a female lead detective from Author Michael Connelly. I will say that the lead detective in this story reminded me a lot of Detective Antoinette Conway from the Dublin Murder Squad series by Author Tana French. So, if you are a fan of that series then this book […]

Review: City of Lies by Victoria Thompson

City of Lies was the type of book that only got better as it went on. At the start, I was introduced to Elizabeth Mile’s character and grifter ways, which I found most interesting. When things went bad with a deal, she wound up taking part in a suffragist march in order to try and throw some thugs off of her trail. Only that did not go as she had […]

Review: Workman’s Complication by Rich Leder

I was interested in reading Workman’s Complication because I like reading stories about private investigators and a story where a private investigation business is inherited, well it peaked my interest that’s for sure. I enjoyed this story from the very beginning and it was hilarious. It had great one-liners and the main character Kate McCall had a lot of Moxie and I love that in a character. It was a […]

Review: Old Scores by Will Thomas

I really enjoyed that this book was titled Old Scores as it was indeed a book about settling old scores. Cyrus Barker was an enigma of a man and in this installment readers will learn more about Cyrus’s history and how his past and present collide in a drastic way. In addition, there is also a nice mystery, character growth, a little bit of romance, and a surprise ending to keep […]
