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: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave life to the character of Princess Diana! Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is but this story made her come alive for me. I found it just magnificent the amount of thought that was put into describing the Amazons and how they came to be. The world building was very detailed and I could clearly imagine the island of Themyscira and the warrior women who inhabited it. […]

Review: Semi-Sane by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Sane is the fifth and final book in the Harper Hall Investigations series which has been an AMAZING series! I have completely adored each and every book in this series and Semi-Sane was no exception. In this installment, the focus is on Dr. Violet Marchand and bad boy Nikolai Aleyev. The story between these two characters was introduced in the previous book, Semi-Broken, and I would recommend that you read […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Twisted by Isabel Jordan

Yay that another installment in this series has entertained and endeared me to this series! The third in any series is usually a nice indicator of how a series is going to progress, and I was thrilled not to be bored or let down! With love, humor, romance, sexy times, and pregnancy hormones…how can this story go wrong? It did not! Back is my favorite cast of characters but the focus […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Human by Isabel Jordan

Ok, it needs to be said: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this story! The main character Harper is just amazing to me. She is witty, sexy, and really feisty. She takes no crap from anyone and has no fear! I just love this character. A year has passed, Noah and Harper have become affianced and are heading to Las Vegas to elope. Anything […]

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: Murder Over Mochas by Caroline Fardig

Murder Over Mochas is the fifth book in a five-book series called A Java Jive Mystery. In this story, Juliet Langley’s ex-fiancé, Scott O’Malley, the total douche who had started all of Juliet’s troubles came back into her life from out of nowhere. He also received a less than welcome reception from Juliet. He was looking for Juliet’s help but why should she help him? He had stolen all her […]

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 […]

Review: Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott

Gray Wolf Island is a beautifully written story about a mysterious treasure that everyone has looked for but it has yet to be found. No one was more entranced with the idea of finding the treasure of Gray Wolf Island than a teenager named Sadie. She has spent her entire youth dreaming about finding the treasure with her sister, but it was not meant to be for Sadie. Sadie and her […]


Review: Paint by Murder by Amanda Siegrist

Review: Paint by Murder by Amanda Siegrist

Paint by Murder was inspired by the daughters of Author Amanda Siegrist. Once a week her daughters will give her prompts for her flash fiction posts and she will choose one and write a short post, essentially a chapter, based on that prompt. This story started with the prompt “I never paint…” and voila an idea was born. Although it started out as just a blurb it quickly morphed into […]

Review: Sweet Nightmares by Zizi Cole

Sweet Nightmares grabbed my attention from the start. The horror elements in this book were tightly twined with suspense and a little romance too. I was immediately horrified by the story unfolding as well as chilled to the bone trying to figure out why it had happened. I immediately had a sense of foreboding that had me immediately engaged with this story. Alexandrea Cooper’s family was brutally murdered and somehow […]

Review: Take to the Limit by Dawn Ryder

I will admit that when I considered reading Take to the Limit from the Unbroken Heroes series I was a little apprehensive. The idea of a guy sleeping with two sisters and having a relationship with one of the sounded like the type of drama that I steer away from. I was beyond relieved that the Author handled that situation well and there were essentially no love triangles. Still not a […]

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is about the “what if’s” regarding the internet. What if the internet could be utilized for truly evil purposes and possession? What if there was a demonic select that had a location on Earth, specifically Portland, that they used for their ritualistic reasons? What if they were tired of the status quo and hatched a plan for worldwide domination? If you ever considered any of those questions, […]


Four by Jane Blythe

Four by Jane Blythe

I enjoy reading the Count to Ten series because Author Jane Blythe is not afraid to bring to life the graphic violence that truly can occur with crime. Before I started reading Four though, I had to take a moment and metaphorically put on my big girl panties to ready myself for this story. I might enjoy and appreciate this series but that does not mean that it doesn’t scare […]

Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds is the second installment of the Knight and Moon series. What draws me to this series is that it is just comical. I mean where else can I read a book that has phrases like “whack-a-doodle and “crap on a cracker.” I also very much enjoy the light-hearted romance that is developing between Emerson and Riley. I like that they are both aware of the building attraction but […]
