Dark Horse (Orphan X, #7) by Gregg Hurwitz @GreggHurwitz @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley #fiction #suspense #mystery #bookreview #bookblogger

Susanne’s Review: Dark Times, They are Upon Us.   For the first time ever, I must admit to skimming an Orphan X novel.  I’m sorry to say it but Dark Horse didn’t thrill me.   After the last Orphan X novel, Prodigal Son, I was eagerly awaiting this one. You might even say that IContinue reading “Dark Horse (Orphan X, #7) by Gregg Hurwitz @GreggHurwitz @MinotaurBooks @NetGalley #fiction #suspense #mystery #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.

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”

the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: Oh my gosh. I went into this read expecting a fun romance. Yes, I heard there were some deeper themes involved. But truly I thought those would be a side note. Turns out it was the romance that took second stage. Anna’s long time boyfriend just asked or should I say presented herContinue reading “the Heart Principle by Helen Hoang @HHoangWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @librofm #contemporary #romance #fiction #bookreview #bookblogger”

No Hiding in Boise by Kim Hooper @KimHooperWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery #characterdrivenfiction

Kaceey’s Review: One of my favorite audios of the year!🤩  A mass shooting at a popular, local bar in Boise. That’s right, Idaho! Where violent crime isn’t supposed to be and has never been front and center. And without warning… there it was.  Cleverly told from multiple perspectives. Giving you a front-row seat, experiencing theContinue reading “No Hiding in Boise by Kim Hooper @KimHooperWrites @Dreamscapeaudio @NetGalley #fiction #mystery #characterdrivenfiction”

Stolen by Tess Stimson @tessjstimson @AvonBooksUK @NetGalley #thriller #fiction #bookblogger #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review: It takes only a single moment….or in this case four hours. And poof, a child is gone.   Alex has flown half-way around the world, from the UK to Florida to attend a destination wedding of her best friend Marc. Alex’s three year old daughter, Lottie is to be one of the bridesmaids.   Continue reading “Stolen by Tess Stimson @tessjstimson @AvonBooksUK @NetGalley #thriller #fiction #bookblogger #bookreview”

Dark Roads by Chevy Stevens @ChevyStevens @StMartinsPress @NetGalley #fiction #thriller #bookreview #bookblogger

Kaceey’s Review: Hailey was raised in Cold Creek British Columbia. A quaint, picturesque mountain town known for its striking beauty. And oh yeah…it’s also notorious for a string of unsolved murders of local girls.    After Hailey’s father dies, she’s taken in by her aunt and her husband, a long-serving member of the local police dept.Continue reading “Dark Roads by Chevy Stevens @ChevyStevens @StMartinsPress @NetGalley #fiction #thriller #bookreview #bookblogger”

The Layover by Lacie Waldon @LacieWaldon #librarybook #audio #romcom #fiction

Susanne’s Review: Let’s hear it for this PG-rated Rom-Com! The Layover by Lacie Waldon comes highly recommended by my friend Jayme.  Based on her review, I requested the audio from my library and decided to give it a go.  Luckily for me, it was a winner. Ava Green is a flight attendant who is preparingContinue reading “The Layover by Lacie Waldon @LacieWaldon #librarybook #audio #romcom #fiction”
