The Forger

I select titles for review because I think a given book sounds like something I might enjoy. So it was with The Forger. I love romantic suspense and the idea of a suspense novel set in the world of art galleries caught my fancy. Of course, I then had to read the book, which unfortunately ended up be ...

The Woman Who Couldn't Scream

It was a struggle to read The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream. It’s difficult to describe exactly what bothered me about the book, but it was at least in part because things moved so fast and jumped around so much that I often felt out-of-sync with the romance. It was as though I’d skipped paragraph ...

On the Chase

On the Chase is the second book in Katie Ruggle's Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series. I haven't read the previous instalment, Run to Ground, but I didn't have any difficulty making sense of things here. The story does reference people and events from the first book, but overall, I'd say this one can be r ...

The Coldest Fear

The Coldest Fear is the third book in Debra Webb's Shades of Death series featuring police detective Bobbie Gentry and Nick Shade, a mysterious man who has dedicated his life to hunting down serial killers. Since this book does not stand well on its own, I suggest picking up the first two books in t ...

Monster in the Closet

In Monster In the Closet, Karen Rose returns to her best-selling Baltimore series with a twisty tale of love and murder. Since I haven't read a Karen Rose novel I didn't love, I was super excited to dive into this one, and I'm pleased to let you know she's written another winner. If you've read t ...

Break the Night

Back when I was in high school and college, I loved Silhouette's Shadows line and Break the Night by Anne Stuart was a particular favorite of mine. I recently reread the book to see how it holds up. The suspense is still compelling and I still enjoyed the story, though there were some issues with th ...

The Other Girl

The Other Girl is a tale of small towns, secrets and the things we do to protect the ones we love. While far from perfect, the book does a good job of capturing the intense relationships parents have with their children and the lengths they will go to in order to keep them safe. The Boy Who Cried ...

Barrel Proof

Note:  Because this is the final book in a trilogy with an overarching storyline, there will be spoilers for the other books in this review. Barrel Proof, the third and final instalment in Layla Reyne's Agents Irish and Whiskey trilogy of romantic suspense novels, picks up pretty much where Cas ...
