Before She Disappeared by Lisa Gardner @penguinbooks #mysterysuspense

Kaceey’s Review: I’ve been reading Lisa Gardner’s books for years, enjoying both her series stand-alone and options equally. Sadly this latest release fell short for me.

Tunneling to the Center of the Earth by Kevin Wilson

Susanne’s Review: Wonderful, Weird, and Beautifully Hypnotic. There are very few times when short stories capture my attention.  Often when reading a short story collection, I feel like I am “missing” something.  That quintessential piece of the puzzle or the ending that completes the story.  With “Tunneling to the Center of the Earth” however, thatContinue reading “Tunneling to the Center of the Earth by Kevin Wilson”
