Book Review: Lies by T.M. Logan

Lies

In keeping with my mystery/ thriller theme lately, I was pleased to receive and dive into Lies by T.M. Logan. Lies is a mystery about an average guy who is happily married and living his life until one day, after seeing his wife’s car parked in a hotel parking garage, everything changes and his world shatters around him.

While this sounded intriguing, I was turned off by this book pretty quickly. I wanted to like it and kept reading hoping it would get better. But unfortunately, Lies fell short for me.

Book Review: An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

An Anonymous Girl

Earlier this year I read The Wife Between Us, a collaboration by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. That book had a twist that wowed me like few other books ever have.

Could they really pull off another great psychological suspense thriller?

One marketing blurb proclaimed that it was a great pick for fans of Beautiful Ruins. I loved Beautiful Ruins so I decided to give The Italian Party a chance. Unfortunately, this book fell short for me. In fact, it is my first official DNF (did not finish) of 2018.

ARC Book Review: Hello Sunshine by Leila Howland

Hello Sunshine

Cover art is copyright of Disney-Hyperion

I was absolutely thrilled when I received an advanced reader copy of Hello, Sunshine from Disney-Hyperion because I’ve loved all of their young adult novels that I’ve read in the past. Hello, Sunshine did not disappoint. While this was the first book by Leila Howland that I’ve read, I can assure you that it will not be my last.

The synopsis of this book intrigued me right away. An eighteen year old prep school graduate finds herself doing the walk of shame through her school hallways and pretty much all over town when she is not accepted into any of the colleges she’s applied to. So she decides to do the next best thing and most logical thing in her eyes – move to L.A. to become an actress. What could go wrong?
