Lazy Day E-Scape: Love Story by Jennifer Echols

Over the last few weeks, I’ve found myself reading murder mysteries, spy thrillers and psychological suspense novels to the exclusion of all other genres. It was time for a change of pace, so on Sunday, I picked up Love Story, by Jennifer Echols.

She’s writing about him. He’s writing about her. And everybody is reading between the lines.

Love Story is a young adult contemporary romance novel. Set at New York City College, this is the story of Erin Blackwell, who grew up on her grandmothers’ racehorse farm in Kentucky, and Hunter Allen, her stable boy.

Thriller Thursday: Dominance by Will Lavender

Thriller Thursday: Dominance by Will Lavender

Dominance is a novel about a puzzle game about a novel. Sounds confusing, but it’s not. And it’s not just any game, it’s a deadly one. One that Harvard professor Alex Shipley will have to solve very quickly before the killer catches up to her.

Fifteen years earlier, Alex was part of a night class called Unraveling a Literary Mystery, taught by famed professor Richard Aldiss. Aldiss was teaching the class remotely from his prison cell where he was serving time for the brutal murders of two female grad students. The women were killed with an axe and their bodies decorated with the novels of reclusive author Paul Fallows. The night class’ assignment was to solve the mystery of Paul Fallows’ identity using his novels as their map. The way to follow the map was through a mysterious game called The Procedure.

Book Review: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

Book Review: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

I’m an avid Stephen King fan, and I can honestly say I’ve read every book he’s written. I always like Stephen King’s long stories. While they lack the satisfying caramelly-nougaty goodness of his longest novels, they are no candied popcorn, either.

This time, King explorers the human mind and takes on the conscience. Each person does or ponders something of questionable integrity, and each action is something all of us have considered at some point.
