Emma in the Night: A Novel
Emma in the Night: A Novel

Review: I really enjoyed this psychological thriller by Wendy Walker. It is riveting from the beginning and hard to put down. Some complex characters, some that I liked and some I did not, especially Mrs. Martin, the narcissistic mother of Emma and Cass, and a very interesting story line that was not predictable at all and that kept me guessing. Although there were a couple of things I did figure out, the ending was a surprise and totally not what I expected. If you enjoy reading books with many twists ... Read more

Free Fire (A Joe Pickett Novel)

Review: I like the series, the only fault I can see is that I would like more of the family involvement as Mr. Box did in earlier books.That is one of the things I thought made his stories different from the run of the mill. Read more

Review: I have always loved Karin Slaughter's characters and that is what kept me reading this book. However, it was too graphic in its description of rape, torture, and family grief for me. I ended up skimming through to get to the end. I'm afraid I'll have to delete this from my device. I really would recommend that no one read this. It was like a horror story. Read more

The Pursuit: A Fox and O'Hare Novel

Review: This one had me worried for a while that Nick was going back to a life of crime and leave Kate in the dust but I was proven wrong. The group is back at it again!!! Great follow up to the series especially since we were left with a cliff hanger on the third book this fourth installment clears up any issues that were left hanging and gives you good insight on where our favorite couple stands with each other. For those of you that, like me, can't wait to hear about this forbidden romance well get r... Read more

Book #1 - The Russian Assassin - A Max Austin Thriller
Book #1 - The Russian Assassin - A Max Austin Thriller

Review: I listened to it while driving on my Kindle, so I can't provide feedback for proper grammar or spelling. It did keep me interested and awake while listening, though. Would read another of his books, if the opportunity arises. I drive almost 600 miles a day for work, so I'm sure I'll get that opportunity soon. Read more

Count to Ten: A Private Novel
Count to Ten: A Private Novel

Review: Nothing here worth the Patterson name on the cover. The book is juvenile,boring and predictable. No character development and nothing in the plot to stimulate any thought. Not worth the time to read. Read more

Heat Lightning (A Virgil Flowers Novel, Book 2)

Review: I like Sanford's style. They're usually quick, smart reads that leave you mostly satisfied. This one wasn't any different story wise. This is the first Sanford book I've bought for my Kindle tho, and I have to say, the formatting was AWFUL!!!! Someone needs to clean this one up in a big way. Read more

Dark of the Moon (A Virgil Flowers Novel, Book 1)

Review: The mystery isn't perfect, the solution is not without holes, but the author is a pro. The pages turn and it feels good. Sanford is looking for new creative outlets, maybe Kidd could get another shot. Read more

Rough Country (A Virgil Flowers Novel, Book 3)

Review: Oh for Heaven's sake, stop complaining and get on with life. If you like John Sandford (by the way, I buy all of his books) don't wait to get this on Kindle. So it's over $10.00--so what. The story is good, the characters are great and I can carry it and all of my other Kindle books with me in one sleek folder. I love my Kindle and I really like this book. Read more

Shadow Prey (The Prey Series Book 2)
Shadow Prey (The Prey Series Book 2)

Review: These are becoming a bit formulaic. The character development is not so hot. The treatment of the main character is as a cardboard cut out, so much that one can predict a lot of what he will do and say. The plot screams right along, the bad guy is bad, it's a nice breazy, quick read. Get the paper back. Read more
