Book Review – Little Girls Sleeping by Jennifer Chase @bookouture @JChaseNovelist #BookReview #BookBlogger #policeprocedural

A good police procedural by Jennifer Chase. The book had me stuck to it literally all through the day in between my chores. The story was pretty much formulaic.

Katie as a war veteran and a cop was shown in a brilliant … Continue reading Book Review – Little Girls Sleeping by Jennifer Chase @bookouture @JChaseNovelist #BookReview #BookBlogger #policeprocedural

Book Review – Dead Inside by Noelle Holten @nholten40 @KillerReads #BookReview #BookBlogger #policeprocedural

But having survived abuse from childhood, I can empathize with them as I do understand pain. This book was a hard core, dark gritty read which dealt … Continue reading Book Review – Dead Inside by Noelle Holten @nholten40 @KillerReads #BookReview #BookBlogger #policeprocedural

This was one unexpected ride down a hollowed tunnel where I came out into a rural setting probably in some foregone era where the unscrupulous Sheriff still rode horses.

I requested for this medical thriller as this genre has been my first love... Ahem.. Ahem...for reasons some of you already know.

The story arc caught my eye - a mother searching for her 16 year old daughter even after 2 years of her running away from home.

Gilly Macmillan is simply brilliant!! This was my first book by her, and I was completely entranced by her writing to the point I took my kindle everywhere with me.

Book Review – The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

My conclusions after reading the book It is rape or non consensual sex when a man has sex with a woman of any age who is in an inebriated state and does not know where she is. It is not the woman's fault. Anyone, including herself or her friend, tries to justify it, it will … Continue reading Book Review – The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Timur’s Escape by Tabi Slick #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I would be the first one to admit that history and I are not friends. This book was written at the backdrop of the Ottoman Empire between 14th and 20th century. But it was not a historical fiction. It is purely a paranormal love story with action, politics, and drama. The story started with Queen … Continue reading Book Review – Timur’s Escape by Tabi Slick #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading
