Excerpt from I’ve Got my Eyes on You

I just finished reading I've Got my Eyes on You by Mary Higgins Clark. The Queen of Suspense is always good for for an interesting murder mystery, and does not disappoint with this police procedural. There are plenty of suspects in this book, and while I guessed the perp early on, I still enjoyed the telling of the story ...
Excerpt from The Camel Club

Excerpt from The Camel Club

I have just started reading The Camel Club by David Baldacci. I have read one or two other books in the Camel Club series. There are some good characters; I am particularly enjoying the OCD member of the club, Milton Farb. But I am partial to characters with neurodiversities. Baldacci is always good for suspense and well-structured plots and clues. Lots of action and thrills. ...

Excerpt from First Family

I don't think I've ever been disappointed with a David Baldacci book. My current read, First Family, is part of the King & Maxwell series. Sean King and Michael Maxwell are complex characters, satisfying to read, and this book revolves around the mysterious kidnapping of the First Lady's niece. ...

Excerpt from Low Pressure

Excerpt from Low Pressure

I am currently reading Sandra Brown's Low Pressure. A murder mystery where the main character, Bellamy Lyston, has written a fictional novel based on her own sister's murder and all of the personalities involved. This might not seem like such a bad idea when the killer had already been caught, tried, and incarcerated, but if the wrong man ended up in prison, that would mean that the real killer is still on the outside. Brown ramps up the suspense as Bellamy digs into past to try to discover the bits of what happened that day that she has blocked from her memory.  ...

I've read and mentioned a few other Louise Penny books on this blog before. Based in Quebec, the Inspector Gamache series always delves deep into the setting and history, psychology, and the complex relationships between the characters. Gamache has dealt with a lot of betrayal and corruption in his time, and in this volume, he is once again trying to root out the source of the ongoing problems in the Sûreté du Québec and how it is tied into the mysterious map and disappearing villages ...

Romance or crime?

Romance or crime?

Over the last month or so, I have watched way too many Christmas romance movies. My husband really likes them, so we have watched just about every one that has come on TV, or at least it feels that way. These movies tend to be very formulaic, as described in this satirical post that I saw on Facebook ...
