Book Review: Local Artist by Paul Trembling

Book Review: Local Artist by Paul Trembling

Trembling’s book is an exciting mystery set in the U.K. It’s the second book in a loosely related series that began with Local Poet, and although there are some continuing characters, you won’t feel lost if you didn’t read the first one (because I didn’t either). […]

Book Review: Pretty, Nasty, Lovely, a Psychological Suspense Novel by Rosalind Noonan

I was in a sorority in college, and I was even in one in Oregon (like the book depicts, but the college and sorority in the book are completely fictional), but mine never had such drama (or death, eep!). This was the next book in […]

Book Review: Psychological Suspense Novel Keep Her Safe by Sophie Hannah

I’ve been on a psychological suspense/thriller kick lately. I’ve read quite a few and they’ve all been fairly engaging. I’ve read many books by Sophie Hannah in the past, she’s written a large number of books and they generally entertain me with their twists and […]
