Whiteout

When I saw that Whiteout is set in Antarctica, I found myself instantly intrigued. The place fascinates me and seeing Antarctica is a not-so-secret dream of mine. However, amazing though the continent may be, I know it’s a pretty unforgiving place in terms of climate and terrain, so the idea of pe ...

Bishop's Endgame

After the rather disappointing Bishop's Queen, the middle instalment of Katie Reus’ Endgame Trilogy, I confess I was on the fence as to whether I was going to finish the series.  But in the end, I decided to read Bishop’s Endgame because I was still interested in finding out what happened to th ...

The Look-Alike

It's been almost ten years since I last read an Erica Spindler novel. There's no good reason for this lapse, other than that with many great books are released each year, I sometimes lose track of authors I love. However, with the release of The Look-Alike, Ms. Spindler has definitely regained my at ...

Police Brutality

I chose The Rational Faculty – the fabulous and compelling first book in Gregory Ashe's second series of novels featuring detectives Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset – as my favourite book of 2019.  I’ve become addicted to the author’s brand of gritty, complex mystery combined with angs ...

Bishop's Queen

Bishop’s Queen is the second book in Katie Reus’ Endgame Trilogy of romantic suspense novels featuring the Bishop siblings, Evie, Evan and Ellis.  Book one, Bishop’s Knight, was a fast-paced, well put-together and sexy story that I called a “quick, satisfying read” in my review; Bishop’ ...

The Vanishing

The Vanishing is the twenty-fifth JAK novel that I’ve read, so I think it’s fair to say that I’m a fan. Many of her books are DIKs for me, but every once in a while she writes a novel that I feel doesn’t meet her usual standard. This is one of those books. Our story begins with a murder. ...

The Secret She Keeps

The Secret She Keeps is the second book in HelenKay Dimon’s new series of romantic suspense novels set on the small, privately owned Whitaker Island, located somewhere off the Washington coast.  It’s an entertaining, and intriguing read featuring a couple of appealing protagonists and a well-dr ...

The Cost of Honor

The Cost of Honor is book three in Diana Muñoz Stewart’s Black Ops Confidential series about a group of adoptive siblings (twenty-eight in total, all but two of them female) who were adopted by one of the world’s wealthiest women and trained in badassery to be warriors in her social justice cru ...

Don't Breathe a Word

I’m a big fan of the current thriller market, with its dark often psychotic villains and flawed narrators, but every once in a while I miss the classic police procedural romantic suspense novels that were popular back in the nineties and nones. Fortunately, some writers are still producing good no ...

Into the Dark

Into the Dark, which is the fifth installment in Karen Rose's Cincinnati series, is one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. I fell in love with Dr. Dani Novak and computer hacker extraordinaire Diesel Kennedy way back in book one (Closer Than You Think), and I have been on tenterhooks waiting f ...
