Mickey Haller Crosses the Aisle

Mickey Haller Crosses the Aisle

I just finished reading The Reversal, book #3 in the Lincoln Lawyer series by Michael Connelly. It's always great to slip back into a familiar series and see old friends like Mickey Haller and Detective Bosch. Mickey Haller, normally counsel for the defense, crosses the aisle in this case to act as an independent prosecutor against a child killer who was freed after twenty-four years due to DNA evidence. ...

Whisper Network speaks loud and clear

Whisper Network speaks loud and clear

I just finished reading Whisper Network by Chandler Baker. It is a Grisham-like legal suspense book about women in society, the workforce, and law in particular. If you are the type who does not like a book with an agenda, this one is not for you, because it is very clearly intended to address sexual abuse in the workplace and the means used to keep victim's complaints from ever seeing the light of day ...

John Puller is back, and this time, it’s personal

David Baldacci is one of my favourite suspense/thriller writers. I picked up The Forgotten, thinking that I hadn't read it before, but I have. But Baldacci's books are detailed enough to read again without getting bored, so I decided to reread it ...

Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

Celebrate Cozy Mystery Day with me!

September 15 is Cozy Mystery Day! Why, you may ask? Because it is Dame Agatha Christie's birthday, and she is widely regarded as the creator of the cozy mystery. A cozy mystery is generally regarded as a mystery with an amateur sleuth like Miss Marple or Murder She Wrote's Jessica Fletcher, who uses her wits to solve a mystery before the proper authorities. The genre consists of clean reads (no sex on the page, no blood and gore, no f-bombs) that can be enjoyed by all ages. ...

Nicholas Sparks tries his hand at Romantic Suspense

Nicholas Sparks is a popular romance author, a genre which I don't often read. In See Me, however, Sparks tries his hands at romantic suspense, which is more in my wheelhouse. It has been an interesting story so well, with the promise of suspense and intrigue to come. ...

James Patterson’s The 17th Suspect—The Women’s Murder Club does not disappoint

I am currently reading James Patterson's The 17th Suspect (book #17 in The Women's Murder Club series). I have enjoyed a number of the other books in this series, though I couldn't tell you exactly how many. They are always a good read. Clever, familiar characters with heart, a mystery or trial, several unexpected twists and turns. ...

Back to school – time to hit the books

It is about time to go back to school. Some of you may have started/your kids may have started already. Here, I don't think any of the schools have opened back up yet, but they will be soon. School may be a very different experience this year. Some of you are suddenly homeschooling or online schooling. Some may be going back to classrooms with different setups to allow for social distancing. And some may be going back to "normal." ...

Excerpt from The Guest List

Excerpt from The Guest List

I am currently reading The Guest List by Lucy Foley. First off, it is praised repeatedly as being reminiscent of Agatha Christie. It is like Agatha Christie insofar as it is a murder mystery with a closed cast of suspects. The characters all have shameful secrets and, I assume later in the book, will turn out to have more connections than the reader is initially told. ...

Excerpt from The Wrong Side of Goodbye

I am reading one of Michael Connelly's Bosch books this week, The Wrong Side of Goodbye. I haven't seen the TV Bosch, soI don't know how faithful he is to the book series, but the Harry Bosch books are a fun read. In this book, Bosch is trying to unwind a series of family secrets as a private investigator, while he is also on the trail of a serial rapist in his part-time police position ...

Excerpt from Hatchett

Excerpt from Hatchett

I am reading the Newbery Award-winning Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. I've always liked survival stories, especially when they involve kids/teens. The book is set in Canada, which is an added bonus, and I didn't realize that it is the first in a series (The Brian Saga). Despite the fact that this is an award-winner, I have found the writing to be weak in a few places. The plot and the survival techniques are solid. Pacing is reasonably good. Lots of exciting disasters. All of the basic stuff you look for in a survival novel are here. ...
