Review: The Hollow of Fear (Lady Sherlock #3) by Sherry Thomas

I am 100% a mood reader and when I started this series I just wasn’t feeling it at all, which bothered me. By all accounts this should have been a series that I would love and I just didn’t when I read the first book the first time.

But I decided after reading one of the later books in the series, that I maybe hadn’t given this series the chance that it deserved. So I went back and re-read the first book and for whatever reason, found it much more enjoyable this time around.

So here I am on the third book in the series and I am 100% hooked on it. I think this is my favorite in the series so far. Even over some of the later books. I loved this one and couldn’t put it down!

Review: Poppy Redfern and the Fatal Flyers (A Woman of WWII Mystery #2) by Tessa Arlen

It’s been a while since I have read anything by Tessa Arlen but I have loved her Lady Montford mystery series and I was excited to start her latest series featuring new heroine, Poppy Redfern.

I started reading the first book when it first came out but then something happened to my copy and I couldn’t locate it for months. I have a feeling mom or sister took it off my nightstand but I have yet to discover incriminating evidence.

Sadly I picked up something else and got distracted and never went back to Poppy Redfern but with this one coming out, I was really excited to dive back into one of Arlen’s exciting mystery novels and get acquainted with this new heroine even if I hadn’t read the first book yet.

Review: Love Poems for the Office by John Kenney

John Kenney’s quick little ‘Love Poems’ books have been a bright spot in my reading calendar over the last few years. While not quite a ‘poet’ Kenney never ceases to connect with his audience in an unexpected way.

I laughed out loud at a number of this poems over the years and have enjoyed giving these little books to friends and family throughout the years, especially for stocking stuffers. He has a wonderful comedic voice.

When this one came up for review, I was excited to read it because I know that he has rarely written a poem that I don’t find humor in, in at least one way or another. And these books are short and quick to read as they are poetry, you can easily pass some times quickly reading through this collection.

Review: Lust Killer by Ann Rule

For ‘Non Fiction November’ my book club really wanted to read a true crime novel. And seriously, is there anyone better than Ann Rule?! The answer is no….no there is not. I absolutely love all of her novels and have read so so so many of them.

However, it’s been years since I have read one of her novels. Like at least 15+ years. I went through a big true crime phase back in the early 2000s and a devoured many of her books but for some reason I didn’t read this one and I am shocked because I have an intimate connection with this book.

My uncle was one of the defense attorneys for the wife in this book and the murders happened right here in my home town, and my dad went to school with the killer. I mean why haven’t I read this book long before now?! I literally have no idea but our book club thought this would be a great read for Non Fiction November!
