An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen BOOK REVIEW

From the authors of The Wife Between Us, comes an even bigger suspense story. Scheduled to come out in January 2019, I was lucky enough to receive an #advancedreaderscopy of this suspenseful book! A huge thank you to #StMartinsPress for that!!

Could you answer honestly, if given a question posed anonymously? Do you think you could truly hide truths that are shameful and embarrassing to you?

This story starts and ends with our main character, Jess. A makeup artist through a beauty company, she spends her days hauling her heavy makeup case around New York. Then, an opportunity arises that she just can’t hide from. Money is always an instigator when you don’t have it. What are the lengths that you’ll go to in order to take care and protect your family as well as yourself?

A true psychological thriller that you WON’T be able to put down!! Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks really hit a home run with this book! I cannot wait until they write another!!

Fragile by Lisa Unger BOOK REVIEW

After reading Lisa Unger’s newest book, Under My Skin; I just had to read another of her books. And I’m SO glad I did!!

This book was excellent and begins a sort of Series dealing with The Hollows. Though the books aren’t a series in the respect you have to read them in order, they are all intertwined and deal with characters from the beginning. For someone like me, who is OCD when it comes to my books, I recommend reading in order. The second book in the “series” is Darkness, My Old Friend. I’ll begin that one soon and let y’all know how it goes.

The story deals with adults and the things they did as teenagers which, coincidentally interact with a current missing girl. Several main characters and the story goes by fast and forms really ghostly memories.

I enjoyed it thoroughly and give it 5 stars. Have y’all read anything by Lisa Unger? Let me know In the comments. I’ll be reading the next few days while, Tropical Storm Gordon rolls through Louisiana.

As always, READ people and tell me what you’re currently reading!!

Under My Skin by Lisa Unger BOOK REVIEW #netgalley

Holy Batman y’all!! This book literally kept me on the edge the entire time!!! Thank you so much to #netgalley and the publisher for graciously allowing me an #arc (advanced readers copy), of this thrilling and riveting read!

We begin with Poppy, a widow who’s still going through the motions almost a year after her husband has been brutally murdered. She goes in and out of it most days, dealing with nightmares that don’t make sense..until they do start to add up.

I never saw the ending coming. I never thought for once it could be who it ends up being. Ms Unger is truly a gifted writer and I will definitely be adding her books to my #tbr (to be read) pile…oh yess it’s a pile, a HUGE one but, one day I’ll get to everything! Hehehe…

This book is beyond a doubt a 5 Star book, get your hands on it when it’s released!!

The Death of Mrs Westaway and Tailspin BOOK REVIEWS

I waited to finish Tailspin by Sandra Brown before writing these reviews. I gave 5 stars for both of them as I truly enjoyed them. I received these books from my local libraries Overdrive account. If you’re not taking advantage of your local libraries offering, you’re seriously missing out. I get on the holds list before the book even comes out so, I’m usually the first to receive.

The Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware, WOW is all I can say! This book was a great read! It started off kind of slow but, immediately picked up speed. Hal becomes a character that anyone could sympathize with and have compassion for. I really never had a clue what was going to happen, I sort of did but, truthfully the ending was a shock!! This was the second book I’ve read of Ms Ware’s and I loved it even more than the first.

Tailspin by Sandra Brown was classic Sandra Brown style. A lot of thrills, romance and running. BUT, that’s what I LOVE about her books! Easy, fast reads that let me get disappear from my life for the time it’s takes to read, that’s what’s enjoyable about her stories. I’m so glad I was able to read this and I’ll be sad until another comes out.

Run to your local libraries, Amazon or wherever you get your books from and get both of these!!

Lies by T.M. Logan BOOK REVIEW #netgalley

It’s 3:20 a.m. and I just finished this book…LOVED it!!

Special thanks to #netgalley and the publisher for allowing me an #arc!!

Most books I’ve read lately are all from a woman’s perspective and this was a man’s and I thoroughly enjoyed it even though, I figured it out quite early. Well, I sort of figured it out haha! The ending ripples through me like “what??”

A man sees his wife’s car driving into a hotel parking lot, the son innocently wants to see his Mommy and the husband starts to realize something isn’t right but, he doesn’t quite get it until the end. Meanwhile, he’s being accused of murder for a man he thinks is just trying to take his wife away from him.

Absolute craziness but, a really good and fast read!! I’ll definitely rate this a 5!!!

More reviews coming soon!

When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica BOOK REVIEW #netgalley

I first want to start by thanking Netgalley and the publisher for the advanced readers copy!! I think this is truly an awesome service for those of us who LOVE and ADORE reading! Warning ⚠️!!! If you have NOT read this book, please skip to the last paragraph!

I really want to rate this book a 5 but, I’m so conflicted by the story. Or rather, how the story played out. Waking up and the entire story being a dream is one thing but, SO much of the dream didn’t even make sense. I think this will be my first 2 star review sadly. Where did the old lady fit into the story? The seeing her “father” in the old ladies attic? I get the Liam/Jack angle but, the rest just had me so puzzled.

Sorry it’s been awhile since my last review, I just haven’t been able to stay up late like normal and read all night. I’m always tired and it stinks soooo bad because, reading gives me such pleasure!! It’s truly the one thing I could do for a living and yet now, I just can’t stay focused. (BIG ugly tears) Maybe it’s my new side hustle selling Younique, I may work from home but, dang y’all, it’s actual work haha!! However, I’m really having fun and it’s really made my confidence level increase so much! So many things that I would have never done before, I’m doing! I’ve always been super shy and the last thing I would have done would be to go live on Facebook or Instagram and yet, I find myself doing it 2-3 times a week.

Thanks for reading y’all!! Tell me what y’all are reading right now!!

Not Her Daughter by Rea Fry BOOK REVIEW #netgalley

Rea Fry’s new release started off slow but after a few chapters, really picked up and consumed me! I really enjoyed it and want to thank #netgalley for the #arc as well as the publisher! I’d rate it a 4 because of some things that didn’t quite make sense but, the book still has me thinking and that’s a great thing!

I’ve never read anything of Ms Fry’s before but, I’m now intrigued by her writing style and will definitely put her on my #tbr list!

The moment I read the little girls name, I immediately saw this poor little girl being bullied by her Mom and could imagine everything happening. The name Emma Grace was perfect for this girls character and her sweet Sarah that rescues her. The writing style of this book was really great and easy to keep up with. I’m a Mom and I’m ashamed to say, I’m glad of what happens in the end. It simply made sense, happiness wins over everything.

Ladies, put it on your to be read lists!!
