Garden Girl

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« An engrossing, engaging and comfy (more so than cozy) story, set in gorgeous Cape Breton, Nova Scotia where small-town charm, coastal ocean views, and the singularities of island life provide the perfect backdrop to a complex mystery. Detective Gordie Maclean is fifty-three years old, a police veteran with the…

The Main Character

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A clever and turbulent story, paced largely by: an achingly slow character-driven build; a plot-driven puzzle that surfaces early, is tweaked and dangled and kept alive with tiny tantalizingly hidden clues (very much solvable, if the reader sticks with it); and a supremely chaotic, crazily consistent ending. Our story…

The Graveyard Killings

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« Gritty and dark, this fourth installment in the Yorkshire Murders series is my first by this author, working well as a stand-alone read. With shades of Ian Rankin, this is a world of drug lords and bosses, rival gangs and enforced loyalties, haves and have-nots, the universally-suffering arm of…

Listen For The Lie

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 An unputdownable thriller, creatively centering on a true-crime podcast, a cold-case mystery, and a totally captivating nasty-but-nice heroine. Lucy Chase is almost thirty, - a beautiful, sarcastic, darkly hilarious, tough-as-nails loner who is used to being on the outside looking in. On the very outside, that is, - as…

Heat Wave

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« An engaging, interesting and strangely comforting read, - the first in a series that is historical, absorbing and not quite a cosy, but peopled with characters and a setting the reader can immediately relate to and feel comfortable with, and a plot that beckons one sink right into it,…

What the Neighbors Saw

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A terrific read that delivers it all - two fascinating first-person POV protagonists who may or may not be reliable; a colorful posse of flawed and mostly unlikable neighborhood characters; a terrible murder and the mystery surrounding it; and all the juicy gossip and secrets of an uber-wealthy, beautifully-written,…

The Search Party

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Interesting and suspenseful, this read is a cut-above the pack, a thriller which takes the time to let complex characters simmer, the author dropping tantalizing clues (from several point-of-views and time periods) of both what’s to come and what has already transpired - not quite giving the reader enough…
