• Review: Betrayed by Blood Mark of the Moon, #2

    I couldn't get into "Betrayed by Blood", but since this is the second book in the series and I knew that going in, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt for readers who have read the first book. Otherwise I'd be rating this as a 2.5 star, as full...

  • Review: Cicada Summer

  • Review: The Scandal of It All The Rogue Files

    I liked "The Scandal of It All", but somehow it didn't fire any passion in me. It starts with the characters, I suppose. Graciela and Colin are nice enough people (damning with faint praise here, I think) and things certainly get very spicy around them,...

    This story picks up immediately where the last book finished. The DA had been murdered and Alex witnessed the entire thing. She's struggling with the fallout and her already fragile mental health. As the investigation begins Alex can't stop herself from...

  • Review: Look Behind You Kendra Michaels

    I love the Kendra Michaels series and Look Behind You did not disappoint. Just as soon as you know what’s going on it changes. You won’t know who the killer is until the very end. I was kept on the edge of my seat and loved every second of it. When I...

  • Review: Spellbinder Moonshadow Book 2

    “Spellbinder” by Thea Harrison is the second book in the ‘Moonshadow’ series. I was mesmerized by the first book in this series and adored the combination of snark and fantasy that permeated it (I still snicker at the idea of ‘no’ gifs), so I was a little...

  • Review: Beautiful Tempest Malory-Anderson Family Book 12

  • Review: Home for the Summer

    "Home for the Summer", by Holly Chamberlin, is not the light and airy read I thought it would be. I tend to pick books with summer in the title because they are usually fun and uplifting. I do understand that this plot started with a tragedy, but I still...

  • Review: One by One A Danny Ryan Mystery

    "One by One", by Sarah Cain, is a sequel to The 8th Circle. I was a little disappointed when I found that out before reading the story. I don't like to read a series out of order. I am a bit ocd about it. Anyways, I found that Danny Ryan was a secondary...

  • Review: The Girl from Yesterday

    The Girl from Yesterday, by Kathryn Miller Haines, is an interesting book. Helen, an addict trying to fight many impulses is the main character. She is not very likable. The beginning is slow, but it didn't take long for the events to hook me into reading...

    "Jungle Rapture" is the first book in the Jungle Queens series written by M.A. Jewell, who is a new author to me. I’m awfully glad I picked up this book, and the only negative thing I have to say is that I was bummed that it was so short. It’s one of...

  • Review: Keeping It Hot The Breakfast in Bed Series, #1

    Picking up a book from a new-to-me author is like laying a bet on something; it could go either way, or it'd be a close call. Barely. What drew me to Sydney Landon's “Keeping It Hot” - aside from that charming book cover - was the blurb. I love a good...

  • Review: Red Sister Book of the Ancestor, #1

    "Red Sister" is the first book in a new series by Mark Lawrence. I honestly don't have a lot to say about this book. The premise sounds very interesting and unique. However, in execution I find the book to be very slow. So slow in fact that I could not...

  • Review: Sleepwalker Branches of Emrys Book 1
