Blackwater Falls by Ausma Zehanat Khan @ausmazehanat @MinotaurBooks #GIVEAWAY

Blackwater Falls by Ausma Zehanat Khan @ausmazehanat @MinotaurBooks #GIVEAWAY

I enjoy reading police procedurals with different settings and diverse characters.  Blackwater Falls is exactly this sort of book. I read to learn new things and broaden my experience which also happened in this reading. There were a variety of cultural and religious aspects which I have had almost no knowledge.  My lack of experience […]

The Wedding Plot by Paula Munier @PaulaSMunier @MinotaurBooks

The Mercy & Elvis Mysteries series has become a favorite for me with plenty of mysteries, well-developed characters and dogs.   In The Wedding Plot, a veterinarian, Patience, who is Mercy’s loved grandmother,  is marrying another veterinarian, Claude.  Mercy’s mother, Grace is running everything and various family members not met or developed previously are on hand.  […]

I’ve been enjoying this Maggie D’arcy series as it has layers of plot.  Maggie is a homicide detective in NY at the start of the series but she visits Ireland to try to find out what happened to her cousin.  Her family has a rich history with Ireland,  and runs an Irish bar on Long […]

🎧 A Rip Through Time by Kelley Armstrong @KelleyArmstrong @katehandford @MinotaurBooks @MacmillanAudio  #LoveAudiobooks

I have always enjoyed this author and was excited to start a new series.  I was a little hesitant because time travel is not my favorite thing.  A Rip Through Time is where a modern day police detective ends up 150 years earlier.  So the story is primarily set historically. Mallory thinks she dies but […]

The Deepest of Secrets in Town by Kelley Armstrong @KelleyArmstrong @MinotaurBooks @sophiarose1816

The Rockton series has built a fantastic and riveting series arc, provided intense and intriguing murder mysteries along the way, and delivered a core group of characters who instilled deep reader love.  Now, it is driving toward a climax that will hold us spellbound and keep us reading into the dark hours. The Deepest of […]

I have loved every one of the  Rockton series.  I would not try to read this as a standalone. The whole series is amazing and   I highly recommend them.  I listened to the whole series on audio, as I love Therese Plummer. Rockton is built on all kinds of secrets.  The council has not shared […]

I absolutely have loved this Orphan X series.   I LOVE Evan and his growth throughout the series.  He is a support for the people at Castle Heights, especially Mia and Peter,  and a parental figure, at least a caretaker for Joey.  I hoped once he got his informal presidential “pardon,” he could go into security […]
