The Other Me by Sarah Zachrich Jeng @sarahzj @BerkleyPub @NetGalley @edelweiss_squad #suspense #thriller #mystery #speculativefiction #sciencefiction #bookreviewers

Kaceey’s Review: Haven’t we all at one time or another pondered what our lives might have been like had we made different choices when we were younger? And what if you were given the opportunity to actually live that life?  But, what if YOU weren’t the one to make that decision! Kelly is living theContinue reading “The Other Me by Sarah Zachrich Jeng @sarahzj @BerkleyPub @NetGalley @edelweiss_squad #suspense #thriller #mystery #speculativefiction #sciencefiction #bookreviewers”

The Dark Hours by Michael Connelly (Renee Ballard, #4, Harry Bosch Universe, # 35) @Connellybooks @littlebrown @NetGalley #mystery #suspense #characterdrivenfiction #thriller #bookreview #bookblogger #harrybosch

Susanne’s Review: Nowadays, times appear rougher than they used to be. Danger shows itself in different ways.  Here and now, you can’t always see what’s right in front of your face simply because everyone is hiding behind a mask and Covid is ever-present.  Never one to shy away from reality, Michael Connelly’s new novel, TheContinue reading “The Dark Hours by Michael Connelly (Renee Ballard, #4, Harry Bosch Universe, # 35) @Connellybooks @littlebrown @NetGalley #mystery #suspense #characterdrivenfiction #thriller #bookreview #bookblogger #harrybosch”

It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy

Susanne’s Review: Seriously Cute, though a Tad Predictable. A Ridiculous Lyft Share Ends with an Inadvertent Phone Swap and a Meet Cute. If only life worked out this way, for real!  Ha. When Harper Thompson and Jonah Rodgers inadvertently swap phones during a wild Lyft share, they of course start swapping text messages. The factContinue reading “It Started with a Dog (Lucky Dog #2) by Julia London @JuliaFLondon @BerkleyPub @NetGalley #romcom #contemporaryfiction #bookbloggers #rottiepuppy”

No One Will Miss Her by Kat Rosenfield @katrosenfield @WmMorrowBooks @NetGalley #mystery #suspense #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: Are you tired of the same old thriller? Ready for something just a bit different? Look no further, my thriller friends!  Lizzie Oulette seemed destined to be on the outside looking in. Never accepted by her peers growing up. And even though she married a local guy, still finds herself cruelly left outContinue reading “No One Will Miss Her by Kat Rosenfield @katrosenfield @WmMorrowBooks @NetGalley #mystery #suspense #bookreview”

The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: So much more than a Rom-Com! Have you ever gone into a book expecting one thing and getting something else entirely?  Well, that is exactly what happened to me when reading The Charm Offensive.  I expected an LGBTQIA+ rom-com, and what I got was a book centering around acceptance, identity, mental health, self-esteem,Continue reading “The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun @AlisonCochrun @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #lgbtqia #romcom #fiction #contemporaryfiction #mentalhealth #bookreview #bookblogger”

Razorblade Tears by S. A. Cosby #sacosby @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery

Susanne’s Review: Justice, Revenge, and Vengeance.   Sometimes there is a fine line between them and such is the case in S. A. Cosby’s Razorblade Tears. If only I had loved this book.  For me, a lot was missing.  First, I did not feel a connection to the characters of Ike and Buddy Lee, whose gayContinue reading “Razorblade Tears by S. A. Cosby #sacosby @MacmillanAudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery”

The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan

Susanne’s Review: There’s just something about Wildstone. Returning to Wildstone for her best friend’s wedding isn’t easy.  After all, it’s been several years and Maze walked away for a reason.  Leaving everyone behind broke her heart.  Once part of a foster family that included her estranged best friend Cat, baby sister Heather, and Walker, theContinue reading “The Forever Girl (Wildstone #6) by Jill Shalvis #jillshalvis #fiction #contemporaryfiction #womensfiction #libraryloan”

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead (Finlay Donovan #2) by Ellie Cosimano @ElleCosimano @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley

Kaceey’s Review: She’s at it again!   Finlay Donovan is a mystery novelist currently (well, almost always) in the throes of yet another writer’s block. The primary inspiration for her next book will come from her everyday life. Because Finlay’s life is in fact, just crazy enough to work as a piece of fiction! I believeContinue reading “Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead (Finlay Donovan #2) by Ellie Cosimano @ElleCosimano @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley”

We Are the Brennans by Tracey Lange @tracey_lange @CeladonBooks #fiction #contemporaryfiction #literaryfiction #bookbloggers #bookcommunity

Susanne’s Review: Guilt, Secrets, Trials & Tribulations.  Life in an Irish Catholic Family.   Five years ago, Sunday Brennan fled her family, friends, and her significant other Kale, in New York and moved to Los Angeles.  She has been running ever since.  The morning she wakes up in an LA hospital after crashing her car intoContinue reading “We Are the Brennans by Tracey Lange @tracey_lange @CeladonBooks #fiction #contemporaryfiction #literaryfiction #bookbloggers #bookcommunity”
