Review: Believe Me by J.P. Delaney

This book seemed like it was going to be outside of my comfort zone, so I almost passed on it. I mean, I like a darker psychological thriller as much as the next person, but so many people use the Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train comparisons that sometimes I start to question the validity of these claims and I’ve read a lot of thrillers lately and I just felt like I needed a little bit of a break from the pace of said novels.

While this book didn’t carry the “the next Gone Girl”  endorsement, I did see some reviews that compared it to other darker psychological books like those listed above. However, this short summary hooked me and made me excited to read this book, mostly because I liked the idea of a decoy temptress.  Continue reading “Review: Believe Me by J.P. Delaney”

Review: Absolute Proof by Peter James (Audio Edition Narrated by Hugh Bonneville)

I haven’t listened to a whole lot of audiobooks during my 10 years of book blogging. I am a much faster reader so listening to audiobooks seems frustrating for me because I can speed read faster than someone can read to me.

Plus I tend to get interrupted a lot during the day so having to stop what I am listening to is sometimes harder than just putting a bookmark in. However, I have been spending more time in my car lately with my little one.

I am a stay at home mom and the closest form of toddler entertainment is about an hour away in Portland. So a few times a week I spend about 2 hours on the road. My little boy is perfectly content watching traffic going by or playing a game. Now mommy on the other hand likes to multitask. So when this audiobook came up, I was intrigued and since I have been driving so much more lately, I was eager to give this one a try……plus I love Hugh Bonneville so there’s that.

Review: Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey

As a new mother (well new-ish mother) this book immediately caught my eye. The summary sounded so interesting….’unsure if she wants her daughter back’.

Talk about chilling. As a new mother, I can’t imagine not wanting my kid back which immediately made me want to read this book, because the characters sounded exceptionally compelling if not entirely likable.

Emma Grace Townsend. Five years old. Gray eyes. Brown hair. Missing since June.

Emma Townsend is lonely. Living with her cruel mother and clueless father, Emma retreats into her own world of quiet and solitude. Continue reading “Review: Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey”

Giveaway: Treacherous Is the Night (Verity Kent #2) by Anna Lee Huber

I had the pleasure of reviewing this book and I loved it! It was easily 5 stars for me! Verity Kent is such a sassy and interesting heroine and I can’t get enough of her!

I have long since been a fan of Huber’s books and I am thrilled to be able to offer a copy of this book for my readers! This is the book you want to read in October! It’s a suspenseful mystery and worthy of fall reading!

In 1919 England, in the shadow of The Great War, many look to the spirit world for answers. But it will take an all too earthbound intrigue to draw in the discerning heroine of Anna Lee Huber’s latest mystery . . .

It’s not that Verity Kent doesn’t sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she’s discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having enough trouble connecting with her estranged husband, never mind the dead. Still, at a friend’s behest, Verity attends a séance, where she encounters the man who still looms between her and Sidney—and a medium who channels a woman Verity once worked with in the Secret Service. Refusing to believe her former fellow spy is dead, Verity is determined to uncover the source of the spiritualist’s top secret revelation.

Then the medium is murdered—and Verity’s investigation is suddenly thwarted. Even Secret Service agents she once trusted turn their backs on her. Undaunted, Verity heads to war-torn Belgium, with Sidney by her side. But as they draw ever closer to the danger, Verity wonders if she’s about to learn the true meaning of till death do us part .
