OnlyContinue reading “Two to Tango (A Belinda & Bennett Mini Mystery) * Amy Saunders”
I had this book in my horror pile for nearly a year and only now I had some time to spare and read this. While it’s not a horror masterpiece, it does allow you to get drawn in and suffocate in questions, much like the main character is. Ethan Burke, Secret Service, has been sentContinue reading “Pines (Wayward Pines #1) by Blake Crouch”

Why, oh, why, does this book sport 4.3 on Goodreads? It was so bad, that I wanted to push a pencil through my ear drums while listening to the audiobook.

So this was an interesting read! I remember watching the old movie ages ago and when I saw the book in a charity pile, I decided to give it a go. Let me tell you, it will go back to the charity pile. With the exception of two very well written sex scenes lasting theContinue reading “Basic Instinct by Richard Osborne”

We’re still helping each other.” Welcome to the Supernatural Zone. Not Twilight Zone since Jordan Peele destroyed it with his political agenda. I’ve picked upContinue reading “Stephen King – The Outsider (Finders Keepers)”
“Why would a just God allow this to happen? Was it all part of an evolutionary clockwork that God allowed to work through itself, unguided, an enormous experiment of some kind, for good reasons that humans couldn’t perceive?” Class reunions: a time for memories—good, bad, and, as Virgil Flowers is about to find out, deadly—inContinue reading “Deep Freeze (Virgil Flowers #10) by John Sandford”
This is the fourth novel featuring Detective Helen Grace (and the first one I’ve read) written by M.J. Arlidge. Quick paced with 433 pages and 143 chapters.
I went through this book in about 3 solid hours. It’s slightly short of 300 pages and the plot, while not terribly engaging, has a few redeeming qualities. The story begins with an unusual mummification in Egyptian times. Thousands of years later, a truck is stopped for a routine traffic violation. The driver Romanian, theContinue reading “Dead Harvest (Inspector Ray Wilson Thriller Book 1) by Andrew Leatham”
