A World Of Curiosities

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« With flashes of the brilliance that have come to be expected from this author, one of my very favorites, this book also was weighed far too heavily down with an overly complex plot, too many unnecessary and loosely connected tangents, and an emphasis on visual references to the dark…

The Searcher

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Another top-notch read from one of my favorite authors, this one a delicious slow burn with main protagonists, Cal and Trey, who are both so beautifully rendered you will find yourself leaving the final pages aching to meet them again in a sequel. Nobody writes like Tana French, an…

The Angel Maker

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A darkly twisted tale that sets such a creepy tone that I swear I found myself reading this one with one eye closed - prepared to close both if and when the story warranted. And although butting up against the very edge, (my triggers are child and animal abuse,…

Velma gone awry

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A new series from the author of the much-loved Clay Wolfe series, this is a very different kind of tale. Set in 1920’s prohibition-infused Brooklyn, the tone is darker, and disquieting, with themes that are both troubling and intense. The story is also historically rich, jam-packed with real-life characters…

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A combination of short, edgy crime stories, and a few that are somewhat longer, (chapter-based), the final one featuring a trainee Detective Kay Hunter (who is featured a long-running book series). With the author’s knack for writing atmospheric, twisty short stories, many of which contain clever and surprising endings,…

The Madness of Crowds

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 From the very start I have loved Louise Penny’s books, having read every one of them, with the joy and eagerness that comes with revisiting a special world, populated with old friends, beginning with Armand Gamache and extending to (almost) every single character who resides in Three Pines (I…

Silent Cry

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« An interesting character-based crime story - more a meandering, engaging, mystery-rich novel rather than a more typical police procedural, this book also serves to introduce DC Gabrielle Darin in the first of a series featuring Gaby and her Wales-based detective team. The story of Izzy, a twenty-something, pretty but…
