The Silent Wife

Karin Slaughter is once again at the top of her game with The Silent Wife, the tenth installment in her Will Trent series. Spending time with these characters is a highlight of my reading life, and this latest release is one of the best in this long-running series. Before I go into the specifics ...

The Last Widow

Karin Slaughter has been an auto-buy author for me since 2010, so this review has been a hard one for me to write. The Last Widow is the ninth installment in her Will Trent series, and I was initially drawn to its undercover plot. Unfortunately, the part of the book that dealt with Will going underc ...

Pieces of Her

I’d like to show you what I looked like as I read this book. No joke. Y’all, this thing is something else. Set between 2018 and 1986, Pieces of Her is a tale of a mother who would go to any lengths to protect her daughter, a daughter who chafes under her father’s authoritarian rule, ...

Fractured

I am very lucky that my local library system offers the option of checking out, via download, audio books and e-books. Since I got an MP3 player for my birthday, I've been exploring my various audio options. Because romance options on audio are slim and mostly limited to bestselling authors I don't ...

Martin Misunderstood

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and have read mysteries for years, so Karin Slaughter's Martin Misunderstood, an original audio novella, seemed perfect. It wasn't. Martin is an obese 36-year-old who lives with his mother. Bullied all his life by his mother and his peers, he's now bullied by his ...
