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…

The Breakaway

πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« A feminist look at love, empowerment and body image, which has admirable intentions and several thoughtful and appealing elements but did not completely hit the mark for me.

Darkest Night

🌟🌟🌟🌟 Another interesting installment, this one Book 2 in the Detective Gaby Darin series. Taking the unusual route of reading these books out of order, this reader has still managed to enjoy the relationships and characters as we come to learn more about Gaby and her current team at North…

Each of the four main protagonists in this story, women all, three of them fortyish and one an octogenarian, have secrets to hide.…
