The Good Son by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Happy New Year's Eve! If you are a fan of Jodi Picoult as I am, I have the next great read for you. Imagine your son is convicted of killing his girlfriend, even though he does not remember it. When he’s released from prison after only a few years you want to help him move on. However society and even their own family does not think justice was served. I’m bringing you this book before the January 18 th publication date courtesy of the publisher. I hope you enjoy hearing my thoughts of the book and a Q&A with Jacquelyn Mitchard. Review When I first saw the cover it did not capture my attention as it is not my normal type of book. Once I read the back over I wanted to give it a try. The book is told by Thea and it focuses on after Stefan is released from prison. I imagine it would be difficult as a convicted felon to return to life. Stefan wants to make a positive impact and Thea is determined to help him. I enjoyed the book and how it dig into different issues. This book tau

The Sorority Murder by Allison Brennan

Happy Publication Day to Allison Brennan and her book, The Sorority Murder. This is the first in a series. When I saw an available blog tour for this book, I jumped on it. The cover catches your eye. The story closely follows. Candace Swain was killed after a sorority party and her body was found a week later. The murder was never solved. Fast forward three years and Lucas Vega is looking into Candace’s murder for his podcast. Can he solve the murder? Review This story is set on a college campus in Arizona. The sorority involved closes ranks and refuses to help with podcast. However some of the members want to help and find ways to reach out to Lucas. Lucas also gains the help of an ex-US Marshal who is also the former sheriff's daughter. This combination gives the duo access to information and how to find information. I was hooked from the very beginning of the book. As I read more the more complex the case is and by complex I mean more people are involved than you would think.

My Darling Husband by Kimberly Belle

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season with family and good books! Today I want to share about Kimberly Belle’s newest book, My Darling Husband . The print release has been delayed to March but you can read the book on digital formats starting today.  I have great appreciation to Park Row Books for providing me an ARC and the chance to be part of the blog tour for this amazing book. Keep reading for my thoughts on the book and a Q&A with Kimberly Belle.  My Darling Husband is a story about Jade, Cam, and their children Beatrix and Baxter (the Bees as their parents call them). The book opens with a total loss fire at Cam’s most successful steakhouse. While he is dealing with that a stranger breaks into his house and holds Jade and the Bees captive. His demand is a very specific amount of money which Cam has until 7pm that day to bring to the house or the stranger will kill Jade and the Bees. Talk about a great setup to a suspense novel! The story is told from

The Drowning Girls by Lisa Regan

Lisa Regan’s 13th book in the Josie Quinn series is a wonderful book. Not only is the cover beautiful but the action keeps coming. You will want to check out this book and all the other beautiful covers in this series. Wow! This is my first book in Josie’s series and I was nervous I would be left behind since it is book 13. I was told it’s best to read this series in order. I may have missed some things but the book gave enough background that I didn’t feel I was missing anything.  I absolutely loved this book. It was filled with action and mystery. When I thought the case was solved, something else came up and there was more to be solved. It was action packed to the very end. I’ve already purchased earlier books in the series and can’t wait to read them.

Winging It by Emma Murray

Emma Murray’s newest book is the third book starring Saorise. The first two books have 4.5/5 star reviews on Amazon. I’ve been reading thrillers recently and this book was a nice change of pace. I love lighthearted stories with feel good endings and this one fits the bill. Be ready to add to your TBR pile! Book back cover When her husband David announces he’s been offered a job in New York, Saoirse is thrilled. The glamour of the big city, the shopping, the culture, not to mention the free Manhattan apartment and business class air fare – what’s not to like? There’s just the small matter of making it work for their daughter, five-year-old Anna, who isn’t so keen to leave her friends and school behind. The Big Apple in the middle of summer isn’t quite the holiday Saoirse envisaged, and with David away with work, New York apartment sizes on the miniscule side, and the pace of life faster than the sleepy London suburbs, solo ex-pat parenting pushes Saoirse to her limits. And as the
