Magic For Liars

In a world where some people are born normal, and some people are born with magic, Ivy Gamble… is normal. Ivy is a private detective. She works for herself, takes pictures of spouses cheating on each other, the usual PI fare. Until one day a woman appears in her office and tells her that sheContinue reading “Magic For Liars”

Take Me Apart

Classified as a psychological thriller, I think this did not do this book any favors. I kept reading expecting suspense and tension to be built in the mystery, but it wasn’t there. Take Me Apart is about Kate going through the records of a famous artist, Miranda Brand, as she begins to unravel the hiddenContinue reading “Take Me Apart”

The June Boys

This is my first Court Stevens book and I loved it. It combines a few of my niche interests… some that will be explored more thoroughly in later book reviews (is that sinister? I promise it’s not). But if you haven’t heard about The June Boys, let me break it down for you. It’s 2010,Continue reading “The June Boys”

The Missing Sister

 A thriller taking place in Paris where our heroine, Shayna, doesn’t speak the language and is desperately trying to find her sister who everyone thinks is dead. Elle Marr created a story where you felt time, unease, and paranoia pressing in on you from all sides. Trust No One. That was Angela’s last note toContinue reading “The Missing Sister”

Dead To Her

Sarah Pinborough’s new book takes place in the heart of the south in Savannah, Georgia. It begins at a party introducing the new wife of William Radford IV, Keisha, a beautiful, black woman from London. Marcie Maddox takes note of how all the other Southern elite react to this change. Not only did William’s firstContinue reading “Dead To Her”

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

A murder mystery, an isolated setting, tons of characters to keep track of, and a Groundhog’s Day-esque setting where our main character awakens in a new body every night. And it’s a damn good time. Going into this, I knew the premise, knew that it would be slightly confusing, and knew that there would beContinue reading “The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle”

Lock Every Door

My first venture in Riley Sager and I have to admit, I’m intrigued. The writing does such a great job of setting an eery mood, and the characters, for the most part, feel very natural and real. I’m torn on this one, I liked it a lot, but also I feel a trend happening thatContinue reading “Lock Every Door”

Tunnel Of Bones

In the second installment to Victoria Schwab’s middle grade series about Cassidy Blake, we are taken to Paris, a place full of beauty, history, and ghosts. This story was just as eery and chilling as the first, though I will admit I liked the first book just a tad better. Cass and her parents headContinue reading “Tunnel Of Bones”
