Float Plan

I loved Float Plan! This is my first book by Trish Doller and I’m looking forward to reading through her past releases. Anna Beck needs to run away from her life. Less than a year earlier, her fiancé committed suicide and left Anna alone and spinning from the fallout. For the past ten months, ...

It's Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake

It’s Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake reads like a cross between Bridget Jones’ Diary and Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying, but for all its flashes of charm, it lacks the freshness of both books. It’s about an ordinary teacher who, in the wake of a traumatic breakup and and a unexpected death, decides ...

Pretending

Pretending is a contemporary novel about a young woman sick of heartbreak and fear, who turns to another identity, a fake version of herself, to get by in the app-driven dating world. While it has a strong hook and a sympathetic main character, the story is so loosely held together that it was a dra ...

Sisters and Secrets

Secrets and Sisters is gently predictable in the way its title suggests it might be. You’ve seen this set-up before; the sister that moved away returns after great tragedy, meeting once more with her free-spirited younger sister and her harried housewife elder sister; the boy she left behind and a ...
