Behind the Red Door

It's so easy to become overwhelmed by the wide array of thrillers released each month, so I'm here to tell you about one of the best I've read this summer. Behind the Red Door is Megan Collins' second novel, and I was utterly blown away by its depth and complexity. I was completely entranced from be ...

Summer Hours at the Robbers Library

Sue Halpern's Summer Hours at the Robbers Library caught my attention initially because of its title, and then, once I read the synopsis, I knew it was a book I absolutely had to read and review. As you might have guessed, I'm an avid reader, and I love when authors center their stories around a lov ...

Homecoming

The last time readers of Ms. Stacey’s Boys of Fall series saw this hero and heroine, they were getting to know each other on the hood of a car. Sam Levitt left town shortly after, expecting to never see Jen Cooper again. But when a request from a trusted mentor beckons him back to Stewart Mills, N ...

Sinner's Revenge

Sinner's Revenge is the second book in Kim Jones’s Sinner’s Creed series about a motorcycle club named… you guessed it, Sinner’s Creed. While I don’t think it’s necessary to read Sinner’s Creed to enjoy Sinner’s Revenge, I did wonder if better insight into Dirk and Shady’s relation ...

Touch and Go

When my children were little I became well acquainted with the wit and wisdom of a nationally known purple dinosaur. One of his numerous oft-repeated songs told me that, “a family is people and a family is love, they come in all different sizes and different shapes but mine’s just right for me. ...

Until There Was You

Ms. Higgins states in the foreword that this book is a first for her, exploring the hero’s point of view. I have to say that being in the mind of two semi-neurotic characters definitely had an impact on my enjoyment. In Until There Was You, Ms. Higgins also continues her custom of making up exclam ...

Dead Opposites

"The apartment house stood at the edge of a woods outside a city in southern New Hampshire. Beyond the woods flowed the river, dark and twisting." And so begins Bethany Campbell's Dead Opposites, a romantic suspense novel set in a creepy old apartment building no one would want to call home sweet h ...

A Thousand Roses

I'm a firm believer that a book's length is not a sign of its quality, and that a talented writer can do wonders with just a few words. A Thousand Roses is a prime example. It's only 187 pages, about as short as they come. It's a traditional short Harlequin Romance to boot. Yet with expert character ...

An Accidental Woman

Lake Henry, New Hampshire was the backdrop for Lake News, which first introduced the characters in this, Ms. Delinsky's latest offering, An Accidental Woman. Since the story follows the fates of two of the local residents, I'm not sure which of them was "accidental" or if the title alludes to both w ...

Kiss the Moon

Kiss the Moon has what many romantic suspense novels are missing - romance and suspense. You don't have to read half the book before the hero and heroine meet. The main characters meet early on, and though they don't always work together, they both try to unearth the truth. Kiss the Moon is more tha ...
