Review: THE GREAT ALONE by Kristen Hannah

  Set in rugged Alaska in the 1970s, THE GREAT ALONE is a book after my own heart. Kristen Hannah has carefully crafted a feeling of isolation in a community of survivors. The first half of this book is just the three Albrights. The family of a stay at home mother, a former [...]

Review: THE WIFE BETWEEN US by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

  THE WIFE BETWEEN US is a book that is being hyped as being one of the most anticipated thrillers of 2018. While it was really original, it was also took a long time to get to the action/answers. The motivation for the characters is hidden from the reader very deliberately. Assume nothing. [...]

Recent Reads -Women on the Edge: ALMOST MISSED YOU and A SIMPLE FAVOR

These two books are both written by debut authors and feature women in trouble. I would classify them both as mystery/thriller. Other than that, they aren't really that similar. I liked one much more than the other. I love the idea of this book. ALMOST MISSED YOU is about second chances and what-ifs [...]

Review: THE PERFECT STRANGER by Megan Miranda

I was totally blown away last year by ALL THE MISSING GIRLS. I knew this book wouldn't be written in the same backwards fashion, but I still expected a lot. I was not disappointed. This author has a talent for writing mystery. The story starts with Leah's fixation on her free spirited roommate Emmy. Emmy [...]
