Book Review: Don’t Cry For Me by Rachel Lacey

Exactly what I needed. I have been reading a lot of just so-so books recently. I wasn’t sure if it was because of the quality of books or if maybe my head has been in a funny space as a result of quarantine during this

Book Review: Gillette Park by Gerri Hill

Stellar book! I haven’t read a ton of Gerri Hill books, but this is the best one that I have read. Mason is a deputy in a small mountain town in Colorado, Gillette Park. The town has a 20+ history of 3-5 children per year

Book Review: Then & Now by Monica McCallan

Instant favorite. I am a big fan of Monica McCallan. Her characters are always hot and likable, with better than average dialogue, and a small dose of angst for a good payoff. But this was so much more than that. McCallan tells an affecting story

Book Review: To The Moon And Back by Melissa Brayden

A couple of archaeologists walk into a tomb… There is a joke in there somewhere. Actually, there is quite a bit of humor in this adventure filled story of the search for the Golden Trinity. Chase and Rayne have a history. I won’t go into

Book Review: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Why didn’t I read this sooner? Had I read it in 2019, when it was released, it would have topped my ‘best of’ list, for sure. ‘Gideon the Ninth’ is all necromancy, politics, and snark. Two out of three of those things are so outside

Book Review: Eyes Like Those by Melissa Brayden

I had been holding off on reading this series because I think I liked the idea of having more Brayden books out there that I had not read yet. Well, that was just stupid. I punished myself for no reason whatsoever. This was too good

Book Review: Compass Rose by Anna Burke

An exciting pirate story set in the future. What was not to like about this? If you are looking for robust storytelling and world building, then this is the book for you. Extra points for lots of strong women characters. This story is about a

Book Review: Girls Who Pray by Evelyn Dar

Come on, Evelyn Dar. Where in the world did this come from?! I loved, Loved, LOVED this book! 5 Stars. Favorites shelf. Period. Claire is being sued by the Amish for a non-fiction book release of her relationship with a woman during her time in
