The Silent Witness by Carolyn Arnold

The Silent Witness by Carolyn Arnold

The Silent Witness is the third book in the Detective Amanda Steele series. It pulls you in right away and has you having to turn the pages until you find out what happens next. Ms. Arnold has a gift for writing taut, suspenseful police procedurals that keep you guessing. This series is a must-read if you like shows like CSI or Criminal Minds.

I love how Amanda tries to stay emotionally detached from her cases but because of her personality and what she’s been through, she can’t help but feel a connection. That raw emotion often helps her find just what she is looking for. The drama and the mystery had my adrenaline pumping. As much as I wanted to …

An Untidy Affair by MB Dabney – Review & Giveaway

An Untidy Affair by MB Dabney – Review & Giveaway

My Thoughts

An Untidy Affair is a gritty, hard-boiled private eye novel that delivered. The story is set in the mid-1980s in Philadelphia. David Blaise is a PI with his own business and a former prostitute, Mae, as his secretary. Blaise finds himself wrapped up in more than he bargained for when two seemingly unrelated cases start having some common connections. And someone doesn’t want him connecting the dots…

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock – Review & Giveaway

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock – Review & Giveaway

My Thoughts

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock is the first book in the new Ruby Shaw Mysteries series. This was such an exciting book! I absolutely loved the premise. From the moment I read that Ruby and her daughter were in witness protection, I wondered how in the world the author would pull off telling the story. I didn’t know if she would be able to have Ruby involved in a crime without blowing her cover.

The author did not disappoint. I loved that the story still felt light even with the gritty subject matter…after all, to be in WITSEC, usually something terrible has happened. I really, really liked Ruby and I loved the setting of Paradise, Arizona. This …

Grave Consequences by Lena Gregory

Grave Consequences by Lena Gregory

My Thoughts

Grave Consequences is the fifth book in this cozy mystery with light paranormal elements. This delightful series is set in Bay Island, a little town just a ferry ride from Long Island. Cass and Bee are two of my favorite cozy mystery characters. Bee is larger than life and full of personality. He cares deeply for his friends and always has me saying “awwww” or laughing out loud. Cass is smart and determined. Even when she doesn’t understand her psychic abilities, she still tries her best to help the people who need helping.

I really enjoyed that this book centered around the Bay Island Lighthouse. It was a way for us to visit somewhere new on the island …

Booked for Death by Victoria Gilbert

Booked for Death by Victoria Gilbert

My Thoughts

Booked for Death by Victoria Gilbert is the first book in the new Booklovers B&B Mystery series and it is set in Beaufort, NC. North Carolina is my favorite state to visit – my sister-in-law’s sister lives in Wilmington, and I’ve been fortunate enough to spend some time there. I love everything about a B&B for book lovers! What a perfect destination vacation. I’d love to participate in fun bookish events – especially in an area I love spending time in. The setting and the premise of the story drew me in first. I found myself reading until I was too sleepy to keep going! That is the mark of a good book for me – when I …

In An Instant by Suzanne Redfearn

In An Instant by Suzanne Redfearn

In An Instant by Suzanne Redfearn had me captivated from the first page. I related to the story so well. The author’s writing was phenomenal. I could easily put myself in Finn’s shoes – I remembered being a teen. Feeling some of the things she was feeling. I also have a 17-year-old daughter which helps to make this story feel more real. I didn’t want to put this book down, I had to keep reading. I felt so many emotions while reading. The writing, characters, pacing…all of it was superb. I cannot wait to read more from Ms. Redfearn.
