Bring Me Back

Behind Closed Doors, the début novel from British author B.A. Paris, was one of my top reads of 2016, so I was pleased to see her third novel entitled Bring Me Back up for review. I snapped it up, fully expecting another fast-paced, twisty, super engrossing thriller, but I got something completely ...

Paper Ghosts

Mind blowing. Addictive. Mesmerizing. All those words describe Paper Ghosts, the newest suspense novel from author Julia Haeberlin. With its unique plot and enigmatic characters, this book is one that pulls the reader in – and doesn’t let them back out till they’ve finished the last page. T ...

Our Kind of Cruelty

Fans of You, the twisty psychological thriller by Caroline Kepnes are very likely going to be drawn to Araminta Hall's Our Kind of Cruelty. It's a dark tale of obsession that kept me engrossed from beginning to end, but I think it's important to point out that parts of the book did make me extremely ...

I heard a lot of positive things about Gone Without a Trace, the début novel from author Mary Torjussen. The synopsis looked intriguing, so I added it to my enormous list of books to read, but avid readers know how this goes. Newer books came along, and before too long, Gone Without a Trace got bur ...

In many ways, Such Dark ...

Let Me Lie

I fell in love with Clare Mackintosh's writing last year with the release of I See You, which was one of my favorite thrillers of 2017. Ever since then, I've been on tenterhooks waiting for the author's next book, so I jumped at the chance to review Let Me Lie. Everyone says Anna's parents took t ...

The Liar's Girl

Sometimes, I get tired of mysteries set in places like London, New York City, or Los Angeles, so I was pleased to discover that The Liar's Girl was set in Ireland. Plus, the synopsis sounded fabulous, so I decided to give this psychological suspense novel a try, and I'm pretty glad I did. It's be ...

Watch Me

Watch Me is a modern day Fatal Attraction. A story of obsession and enthrallment, small mistakes and large consequences, this novel is the tale of what can happen when we step off the safe, mundane path life has set for us. Kate Youngblood is lamenting her mediocrity.  Recently divorced, she is ...

I Know My Name

Anyone who knows me knows the psychological thriller is one of my very favorite genres to read, and C.J. Cooke's I Know My Name is one of the better ones I've read lately. I'm not normally a big fan of plots involving amnesia, but something about the synopsis caught my attention and I decided to giv ...
