My Review Prophecy Girl is one of those books that you can just fall into and fall in love with the characters!  Samantha is a pretty amazing girl who has lived a pretty rough life and still managed to hold on to herself.  She is put in situations that even adults would have issues with […]

My Review Pure is the first book in the new Pure series by Catherine Mesick.  The book opens with Katie, an average teen girl dealing with nothing more pressing than an overprotective grandmother, a complicated relationship with her guy BFF and and even more complicated situation with her girl BFF.  But everything changes for Katie when people […]

Season of the Macabre

Season of the Macabre
Posted 19 June 2012 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Season of the Macabre is a compilation of three previous volumes of short stories by the author, Cold Comfort Child, A Polite Exchange, and The Rare Gift.  I am a sucker for good macabre fiction, and this book delivered that.  All of the stories had a holiday theme, but definitely not of the “fluffy, […]

Odd Jobs

Odd Jobs

  My Review Odd Jobs is the debut novel by author Ben Lieberman, a mystery novel that had me turning the pages, unable to put it down.  The plot was well-written and engaging, the action perfectly well-paced.  In my opinion, it’s the characters that drive the story.  Enough of a history is created for them, without […]

My Review Until I began reading Mike Dennis’ work, I never really got too into noir fiction, but I most definitely a fan now.  Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Eyes is a great story that takes the “average guy meets a femme fatale” plot and gives it a twist and a gripping story. […]

My Review Seed is an amazing read, full of thrills and suspense and gore, all the things necessary for an fantastic horror novel.  The creepy factor for this book was through the roof, set in the perfectly gothic southern Louisiana .  This isn’t Hollywood horror, but dark and evil, twisting and insidious and eerily subtle.  Jack’s […]

My Review Concerto combined the best of mystery, romance, intrigue, and suspense and wove into a story that I just couldn’t put down.  From the first page, the story drew you in and just wouldn’t let you go.  Chrispen is a violinist with the local symphony and is looking at a chance to play with one […]

Predators of Darkness: Aftermath

Predators of Darkness:  Aftermath

My Review Predators of Darkness:  Aftermath is a book that made me not want to leave my house!  The opening line below had me hooked from the very beginning,… Dropping a cat from the top ledge of a ten-story office building was not the best way to remain hidden, but it was necessary. Not your […]

My Review Half-Inch is a rather thought-provoking story of a woman who has been pushed to the limits by her abusive husband.  Despite their impending divorce, Pammy has realized that she will never be free of him and his abusive ways.  For years, obsessed with crime drama TV, she has fantasized about being rid of […]
