Book review: The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

Monday, August 7, 2017 Permalink

Goodreads bills this as Roxane Weary #1, so it’s already a good sign that this debut novel by Kirsten Lepionka will be the first of many. Or at least several. It’s also ideal to start a new series at the beginning…. something I’ve occasionally not done and my enjoyment of subsequent books has suffered as a result (Emma Viskic’s And Fire Came Down / Resurrection Bay, I’m looking at you!)


Book review: Say Nothing by Brad Parks

Friday, March 17, 2017 Permalink

It wasn’t until I was reading this book that it occurred to me I’ve not read many legal thrillers of late. It seems my days of Scott Turow, Steve Martini and John Grisham are (inadvertently) a thing of the past, though I still very much adore Alafair Burke and Lisa Scottoline. Nevertheless… it’s  been a while between courtroom scenes!

And I lapped up this standalone novel by Brad Parks, devouring it in one evening. 


Book Review: The Girl With A Clock For A Heart

Friday, January 31, 2014 Permalink

In his freshman year of college George Foss fell in love with The Girl with a Clock for a Heart.  And now, 20 years after she disappeared from his life (and after many false alarms), he spots her in a Boston bar.

George knows Liana’s appearance in an obscure local tavern can’t be a coincidence. He realises she’s trouble but at the same time knows he’s powerless to refuse any request.
