I Can See You is my first experience with Karen Rose. It won’t be my last. The book introduces a new series featuring the Hat Squad, Minneapolis homicide detectives who are ceremoniously presented with a fedora upon completion of their first successful case. The author kicks th ...

Hunt Her Down

I’ve been a fan of St. Claire’s Bullet Catchers series for a few years now simply because I always have so much fun reading them. Hunt Her Down was no exception, despite a few issues I had with the plotting. At the age of 18 Magdalena (Maggie) Varcek was a drug dealer’s gi ...

And it is over the top ...

Pitch Black

Perhaps I’ve become a bit jaded in my reading, but I have to admit I almost didn’t sign up to review Leslie Parrish’s books because of the “A Black CATs Novel” tagline. I think I’ve read too many books with cheesy nicknames, which turned out to be cheesy books. I’m so glad I took a cha ...
