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: The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West

I was excited to read The Secrets of Isalyne because it sounded exciting and it was some serious cover love! I absolutely loved the whole idea of the lumination trade. I loved it! It was so original!! Luminators had a special ability. They were able to take faded memories and restore them. Brighten them in the mind so that the person receiving the service could have faded memories restored to […]

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: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review: Mackenzie’s Trust by Jane Blythe

Mackenzie’s Trust is the second novella from the Flashes of Fate series. In this story, I was quickly caught up in the nightmare that was Mackenzie’s reality. Let me tell you that it was not a situation I ever want to encounter myself. It was an absolutely terrifying scenario to consider! I loved how I was able to feel Mackenzie’s fear, loathing, and anxiety from the start of this short […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]

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 […]

Dead over Heels by Theresa Braun

When I started reading Dead over Heels, I was expecting a sweet little romance with a hint of the paranormal. Wow! What I received was an appetizer of romance and a serving of paranormal with a side dish of horror. I thoroughly enjoyed this short story and managed to be surprised by the ending. This is a gem of a novella! Veronica’s character was a hoot! I wanted to know […]

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

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 […]

One Taste of Crazy by Amanda Siegrist

The A One Taste Novel series is set around a group of friends who started out working in the same firm until an event occurred that changed their lives forever. I really appreciate that each book in this series focuses on a specific character but also includes the characters from previous books. Dee O’Malley was introduced in the first book of this series but it was not until One Taste […]
