Book review: The Boy by Tami Hoag

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 Permalink

Bizarrely I’ve not read many books by the v.popular and talented Tami Hoag. I’m not sure why as those I’ve read I’ve enjoyed.

In my last review (Lucifer Falls by Colin Falconer) I commented on the fact I prefer discovering a series as it launches so I don’t drop in part-way through. I was worried, as this was the second in Hoag’s latest series, but it didn’t matter. I’ve certainly missed some context – I’m not sure if the first was set directly before this or several years before when our two lead characters meet / marry for example – but it had me riveted all the same. 


Book review: The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag

Friday, January 29, 2016 Permalink

I’m fairly new to Tami Hoag’s work but enjoyed her last novel Cold Cold Heart, published in January 2015.

I hadn’t realised her latest, The Bitter Season, was part of a series but thankfully it made no difference and I was able to enjoy the book without knowing the characters’ histories. In fact she does a great job, adding context with minimal detail so readers don’t feel they’ve missed out and don’t have to endure four books worth of backstories.
