The Other Valley

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A fascinating speculative premise and a read I absolutely could not put down for almost exactly the first half (Part1). Although this reader did find the pacing and characterization of the second half (Part 2) less rewarding, overall this is a stunning read - original, interesting and well worth…

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…

Bright Young Women

🌟🌟🌟🌟 A fascinating fictionalized re-telling of the horrors of serial killer Ted Bundy, with a key difference. This story is told not in terms of the protagonist Bundy himself, (who is so small and undeserving of our focus in every way that he is not in fact, even granted a…

Never fully sober, Jude is hallucinatory, and traumatized as she takes a trip down memory lane. On her first solo visit to the…

Have You Seen Her

My second read from this talented author; this is a twisty, sinister story that cannot help but evoke echoes of the atmosphere and tension of the terrible true-life crime story of Gabby Petito. With a spectacularly intimate feel, aided by the first-person POV voice of our main protagonist, Cassie Peters…
