Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.

You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

Guest Post: Radio Days by LS Hawker

Guest Post: Radio Days by LS Hawker

Setting a novel in a radio station has been a long-time dream of mine. Early in my career, when I had no concept of how much money was required to both pay rent and eat, I worked at a small-market top-forty station in a Midwestern college town. My current thriller Body and Bone is set in a radio station modeled on that one, and the memory of it sparks almost insane levels of weepy nostalgia.

This was my first full-time job after graduating from the University of Kansas, and most of the employees were early-twenties recent college grads eager to take on the broadcasting world. We built that station from the ground up—the building wasn’t even finished when I was hired—and worked twelve- to sixteen-hour days for weeks ramping up to go on the air.

Review: Everything She Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne

Review: Everything She Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne

Some things aren’t meant to be remembered . . .

They’re calling it the worst pileup in London history. Margaret Holloway is driving home, but her mind is elsewhere—on a troubled student, her daughter’s acting class, the next day’s meeting—when she’s rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car seconds before it’s engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.






Thriller Thursday: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Thriller Thursday: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Did you read The Girl on the Train? What did you think about it? Please share your thoughts with me in the comments!

I usually read the entire book and then think about it for a few days before I sit down to write my review. I do this because sometimes the way I feel about a book changes after I’ve had a chance to process it as a whole. But as I’m reading The Girl on the Train, I have some pretty strong emotions from the beginning, so I wanted to see what happens to my review if I write down my thoughts along the way.






Review: Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell

Review: Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell

I’ve been a Kay Scarpetta fan since Postmortem was released in 1990 and jumped at the chance to review Flesh and Blood. Author Patricia Cornwell has always been a masterful storyteller who could keep me up all night to finish her books in one sitting and leave me too terrified to go to sleep when I did finally finish. I expected the same from F&B.
