Review: One Step Behind by Lauren North

I read Lauren North’s debut novel, The Perfect Son, when it came out and I absolutely loved it. I thought she was an exciting author with so much promise and I have been looking forward to this book for quite some time.

Plus it features a stalker and nothing raises the hair on the back of my neck quite like a stalker story. I immediately fast tracked this book as a perfect introduction to my creepier fall reading.

Say hello to my longest read of the year. Not necessarily the longest book in terms of pages, but rather in terms of how long it took me to actually read this one!

That and I started a new job and just generally got waylaid when it came to reading this one. Continue reading “Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane”

If you are an American History fan then this book is one that you might want on your radar. As a Civil War Era historian, this book caught my eye as it focuses quite a bit on Reconstruction.
