Sworn to Silence

Sworn to  Silence and more by Linda Castillo I am loving this crime series.  There are currently 22 books in the series I have read the first three and plan to keep going.  If you like a crime series like Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache books, these should be right up your alley. The Premise:  Meet... Continue Reading →

A Good Girls Guide to Murder

A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson As I have mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of the YA (young adult) genre, but I find a good one can be a perfect summer read.  YA tends to be lighter reading (even if the topics are on the serious side), and the teens... Continue Reading →

The Maid

The Maid by Nita Prose.  I don’t want to jinx myself, but I feel like I keep picking up great books lately! The Premise: Molly works as a maid at an upscale hotel.  We quickly realize that Molly suffers with social skills.  While it’s never explicitly stated, Molly appears to be autistic.   Her view on...

56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard The Premise: 56 days ago Clara and Oliver met at a grocery store in Dublin. Things seem to be going well, but there is this thing called COVID-19 happening (heard of it?). After just a couple weeks of dating they learn that the city is going on lockdown. Rather...

Home Before Dark

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager In the summer I love a light and fluffy book or a sweeping adventure. But as October roles around, I tend to turn to books that are a little darker and a little spookier. There is nothing like a book about a haunted house to get me in the... Continue Reading →

How The Light Gets In

How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny This is the 9th book in Penny's Inspector Gamache series. There are 16 books in this series so starting it is a commitment. While book 7 still remains my favorite so far, I really enjoyed How the Light Gets In. This installment of the series has us... Continue Reading →

Never Have I Ever

Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson How can I not read a book that starts with a book club gathering? The premise: Our main character, Amy, is a good mom, a good friend, a good wife and a good neighbor.  She lives in a perfect (if not occassionally catty) suburben neighborhood. Her and her...

Leave the World Behind

Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam I was a little on the fence about this book, so I read the reviews to see what other people thought.  It appears there is a wide range of opinions on it.  The Premise: A family of 4 rent a vacation home in a rural area to get... Continue Reading →

The Brutal Telling

The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny Number 5 in the Inspector Gamache Novel and my favorite so far.  Penny has a knack for really odd murders and this one is no exception.  Although, in truth, I guess it’s not the murder that was so odd it in this one, but what happened after. The premise:... Continue Reading →
