Special Feature: Without a Brew (Sloan Krause #4) by Ellie Alexander

I have been a big fan of Ellie Alexander! I have enjoyed this series quite a bit but couldn’t get it on my review schedule for the fall, however I am going to read it later on this winter!

Alexander is a Pacific Northwest writer and I have loved reading her books that are all set in Oregon and Washington. Many of the places I know and recognize which makes the book hold a special place in my heart!

This particular series has a craft brew element which may or may not be you thing but I personally enjoyed it and I love all of her descriptions of the beers not to mention the food! Alexander also consistently crafts a great mystery and I have no reason to believe this book will be any different!

Review: The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware (Audible Edition)

Ruth Ware has been on my radar for quite some time, especially this book. I wanted to read it last year for October but then got on to something else.

I have wanted to pick it up several times this year but I have heard such mixed reviews that I just wasn’t sure which book to pick as my first Ruth Ware experience.

Finally, after much debate, I just decided to go for it and read this book as my first Ruth Ware book since I loved the premise of the summary. It was an interesting read for me and not quite what I was expecting but yet at the same time, exactly what I was expecting if that make sense.

Review: One In Three by Tess Stimson (Audible Edition)

One of my friends raved about this book and one of my favorite narrators performs one of the parts in the Audible edition so it wasn’t a hard sell to get me to read this book.

Our book club ladies are avid murder mystery/thriller readers so it’s sometimes hard to find books that we all haven’t read but even though this wasn’t an official book club pick, many of us read it based on one of our members suggestions.

I didn’t know much more than that based on her recommendation but I was eager to check it out all the same. When I started listening to it, I was hooked. I loved all of the narrators and thought they did an amazing job with their performance! That’s what hooked me and then they odd story that followed.

Special Feature: House of Correction by Nicci French

I have really enjoyed the Frida Klein books by Nicci French and some of French’s standalone mysteries are wonderful reads too. This latest novel is a standalone mystery that promises dark twists.

This one sounds so intriguing with a woman arrested for murder but yet she cannot recall anything about the murder or the night in question but yet she is arrested and must prove her innocents.

I think this one sounds so compelling and interesting and with the writing skills that French is known for, I think this one is going to be excellent. I couldn’t fit it into my review calendar for this month but I am super excited to bring you all the details today!

Review: In Case of Emergency by E. G. Scott

This book had so much potential for me. I loved the premise and I was excited to read it. It sounded like it was going to be quite the nail bitter and I think the cover has a lot of visual interest to grab readers right away.

I love books like this where the main character is a suspect in the murder of a complete stranger. For some reason that troupe always draws me in because that has got to be someone’s worst nightmare.

I mean, I don’t know what I would do if I was being treated as a person of interest in a murder of a person I had never met before. So right away this one sounded so amazing to me and I couldn’t wait to crack it open.
