[Guest Book Review by Sharon Harvey] The Widow by Fiona Barton

I started to read this book after my niece recommended it to me and I borrowed hers until I had my own copy. It wasn’t the sort of book I would actually read, and if my niece hadn’t have recommended it to me, I most probably wouldn’t have even looked or bothered with it. At first…… Continue reading [Guest Book Review by Sharon Harvey] The Widow by Fiona Barton

Let’s try this again. Shall we? You know how we can sometimes get caught up on the “busyness” of it all and wish for a simpler life? That wasn’t this. But, I did learn something interesting about how we respond to things today.

Death Returns is the third book in J.S. Peck’s Death Card Series. Not long ago, Ms. Peck posted she was looking for ARC readers and I, of course, jumped at the chance.

The Broadcast by Liam Falkov (Book Review)

The Broadcast by Liam Falkov takes us on a journey of mystery, shadow intrigue, and a host of characters who are at first, seemingly unconnected. Secrets are the biggest obstacle, it would seem, toward the main character’s wishful lives.

The Child by Fiona Barton (Guest Reviewer Sharon Harvey)

The Child is told from a different approach this time – working through the papers and looking through a journalists’ eyes. It was exciting to see things from their point of view. So, I got very excited by this book. Each character had their own chapter, in order to tell their stories more deeply. I got…… Continue reading The Child by Fiona Barton (Guest Reviewer Sharon Harvey)
