[Book Review] Force of Nature by Jane Harper

Book Review of Force of Nature by Jane Harper

Force of Nature by Jane Harper is a suspenseful story filled to the brim with twists and turns that will get you on a thought path that winds up as far from the truth as these women were from their hiking path!

I have to admit, when I heard that The Dry was going to be a series, I was very hesitant. I thought The Dry was incredible as a standalone and I was nervous that the second book wouldn't live up to my expectations.

I'm so happy to say that this one surpassed my expectations! I actually enjoyed this book more than the first. I loved every second of it and really struggled to put it down! And of course, now I want to go back and re-read the first one again!

Let's get to my review!

[Book Review] The Last Straw by Ed Duncan

The Last Straw by Ed Duncan is a crime thriller filled with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you watch the story unfold!

I had previously read and reviewed Pigeon-Blood Red by Ed Duncan and I really loved it. When I was approached and asked to read the second book in the series, I anxiously awaited for my copy to arrive in the mail. I'm so happy to say that this book did not disappoint!

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.

[Book Review] The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Book Review of The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware just wasn't a book for me. It was so slow and repetitive. I can't believe I read through the whole thing. Another I most definitely should have DNFed.

There were a few things I did enjoy about the book, but heads up; this review is short and quite negative.

[Book Review] The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman


The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman is fantastical story about an adult remembering events from his childhood.

I picked this one up when I saw it at a local thrift shop. I almost started reading it time and time again, but something kept making me wait. When the book was chosen for my book club, I finally gave it a read.

Unfortunately, this one fell very flat for me.

[Book Review] Act One, Scene One-Murder by A.H. Richardson

Book Review of Act One, Scene One-Murder by A.H. Richardson

Act One, Scene One-Murder by A.H. Richardson is such a fun, old fashioned murder mystery!

This was the second book featuring Berry Beresford, Sir Victor Hazlitt, and Stan Burgess that I have read, Murder in Little Shendon was the first. So when I was asked if I would like to review another of A.H. Richardson's books, I agreed immediately!

I'm so sad that it took me this long to get to it, but I'm so happy that I've finally read it! This one certainly didn't disappoint!
