Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan

As a book reviewer, I am almost always drawn to stories involving bookstores or libraries. When I came across Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore I was of course drawn to it. Adding the murder-mystery just made it even more enticing. Also helps that the cover is very eye catching. What I thought was going to be a cozy mystery turned into a true murder-mystery style story with red herrings, […]

America’s Next Reality Star by Laura Heffernan

I wanted to read America’s Next Reality Star because I was curious to see how convincing the storyline would be. Would it be believable? Would it compare to what I think the process would be like? I can say that I have only ever watched reality shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Face Off. I am not really a connoisseur of reality television but this story was very convincing. I really […]

I know you are wondering how that is even works together but the writing weaves a story that has a strong plot with well-developed ideas and subplots that are tied together nicely. It makes for an exciting, steamy read that will haunt you. Dominic […]

Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

Review: Forgotten by Neven Carr

Forgotten was just lovely! It is a superb tale that is intricately woven with details and developed characters. This story takes place over a matter of days but the start of it all stretches back over a decade. Claudia has never really been bothered by her lack of memory from before the age of seven but it quickly becomes apparent that there is something being hidden from her, something that […]
