I'm Still Here (2014)

4.5 stars. Wow. This book certainly was not what I was expecting. I'm not sure what I thought this book was going to do to me, but it certainly wasn't supposed to reduce me to tears. These characters were so spot on and so fleshed out, I felt like they were people I knew personally. And in a way,...

What an adorable quick read! Melissa Tagg does it again with inviting her readers back to Whisper Shore. Tagg does a good job at creating characters who are lovable. I hope she writes a longer story with Penny and Will. I would love to return to Whisper Shore and find out what happens with their ...

Claiming Serenity (2014)

I have been waiting for this book since the moment I met Layla and Donovan at the beginning of this series. Their pranks, and the love/hate relationship that these two share is simply ADDICTIVE! Whenever these two were in a scene you could feel their chemistry. I am so happy the author wrote thei...

This was a fun read. I really enjoyed the cast of characters for this series. Duffy Brown can write some hilarious characters. The mystery and story was interesting and kept me flipping the pages.  Its going to be interesting to see, what happens with Evie and Nate Sutter in the next book, their ...
Cold River Resurrection (2009)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 1
This book is a real page turner. It has some of the most intense action passages that i've run into in a book for quite a while. The story is a little far fetched and the genre is rather nebulous. It goes from detective to thriller to occult and back again, but it does so in a remarkably believab...
Dead Girl Moon (2012)

This is a hard one to talk about. I didn't really like one of the main characters. Grace was abused by her older brothers, ignored by her mother when she told her about it, and has run away from home. She finally runs out of money when she gets to Portage, Montana. In Portage she runs into an "ol...
Mark of the Loon (2012)

Just finished this today. I enjoyed it very much. A slow burn of a mystery and then it suddenly takes off to a hectic climax. I loved the characters, although it took a little getting used to the US environment as I don't have the markers for it in my head. Liked the interwoven romance and the wa...
Dirty DNA 2: 'Til Death Do Us Part (2000)

NiQue is back, and she's in the MIDDLE of the street, stirring up drama. BlaQue definitely packed tons of twists and turns in these pages, keeping readers engaged as characters changed focus, switched sides, and demonstrated that life isn't always what it seems. Dread is on the run, Pinky is ke...

Sunset Rush (2000)
4.52 of 5 Votes: 4
I felt like I was watching the movie "Clue". There were so many characters that hated Paul and wanted him dead. All kinds of secrets surfaced and what I thought I knew about characters was dismissed and I was thrown in a completely different direction. I loved all of the drama and Sophia and Co...
There Will Be Lies (2000)

OK. So while it pains me to give a 464 page book a 2 star rating, I just can't give it any higher. I wanted to enjoy this book, and parts of it really were interesting. I found out why people were sent a Moose keychain as part of the promotional ARC packages and other than it should have been ...
