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 […]

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.

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 with Excerpt: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter

Flame in the Dark was such a fun read for me! I love the paranormal investigation team PSYLed Unit 18 and in this story, they are back and in full swing. This story starts out smack dab in the middle of an investigation. There had just been a shooting at a senator’s house and Nell is cutting her teeth as a full-fledged probationary paranormal investigator. Nell is officially done with […]

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: 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. […]

Semi-Sane is the fifth and final book in the Harper Hall Investigations series which has been an AMAZING series!
