This was great! I have heard great things about this author’s writing but somehow missed picking up any of her books until this one and I must admit that I was quite impressed. The story pulled me in immediately and I just couldn’t get enough. I couldn’t wait to see how everything would fall into […]

I enjoyed this one! I love a good puzzle as much as the next guy, but Mike Brink is a savant in the realm of puzzles, and this story is a doozy of one. Quite a few things are going on so the reader needs to pay close attention to keep track of all the threads […]

This was a rather bleak story. Cassie has a job that she thought would be wonderful in Silicon Valley. Unfortunately, it is a very toxic environment when she can never work hard enough or make the supervisors happy. Her personal life isn’t any better. I thought that the story was well-written and very believable. I […]

I loved this book! I cannot remember the last time that I was so excited to read a book so to say that my expectations were high is an understatement. I was a little worried that I would end up being disappointed because I was expecting a lot from this novel but I had nothing […]

This was great! I decided to give this book a try because it sounded like it might be exciting and I was absolutely correct. I liked Ikenna right away and quickly realized just how desperate her situation was. She is really quite alone after the death of her grandfather, and she has a pretty big […]

This was interesting! I felt like I had missed something when I initially finished this audiobook so I went back to the beginning and listened to it a second time. I am confident that this was probably more of an issue with me than with the book. I enjoyed getting to know this young boy […]

This was a fun thriller that kept me guessing! The story opens at a Memorial Day block party and we know that someone is killed but we don’t know who the victim is, who the killer is, or any of the motives. We then go back in time to the year before to find out […]
