HER FINAL BREATH by Robert Dugoni Her Final Breath by Robert DugoniMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I absolutely love thrillers, especially crime ones, and my favourites are serial killers, which this book was about. The main character is Homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite, she is still reeling from the murder of her sister when she is put in charge of the team investigating the serial killer dubbed The Cowboy. Her boss did not give her the job because he is in awe of her capabilities, in fact, he and Tracy have bad blood, and he is out to see her fall on her face. The team she is with a great, but she knows that the backlash of this case is directed at her and tries to shield her partner and the others from any fallout happening, to do this she does things on her own without them knowing. This is one of those stories that has...

BRAGG V1 by JACK LYNCH Bragg V1 by Jack LynchMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a copy of this book via the publishers Brash Books, in return for an honest review. Can I just say that I cannot thank them enough for bringing these amazing books of the late Jack Lynch to my attention, I have to say that his books are amazing, well-written, and the characters so believable. This particular book has 3 of Lynch's amazing stories. His Bragg private investigator character gets himself involved in various cases and each one is excellent. I cannot pick a favourite out of these because each story is terrific, I could read the author's works over and over and over and never get tired of them. I have chosen Die for Me to write about because it was his last novel. I like Peter Bragg, he is a very likeable guy, but not without some issues....

Review - A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush, is a sort of contemporary urban fantasy set on the streets of Seattle. The year is deliberately unspecified, but you can easily imagine the events playing out today anywhere in the world. Having briefly lived in Seattle, part of the charm for me was the occasional sense of recognition of the places visited. However, the appeal of the book goes well beyond that. A Sip of Fear explores issues of spirituality and humanity, life and death, good and evil, and how these motivate men and women in rather different ways. Readers of Brian's blog will not be surprised, since these are matters he likes to explore. So there are occasional magical conflicts, but these are brief, and secondary to the main theme - human growth and development, on both the personal and collective fronts. Brian's writing encourages readers to grapple with deep issues for...

Review - Chasm Creek, by Patricia Grady Cox Written as one of “The Review Group” Review Volunteers, see It is a very long time since I read a Western. Back in school we had Shane as a class book, and from the same era (and I'm showing my age here) I was a keen watcher of the two television series The Virginian and The High Chaparral. But since those long-ago days I think I have only encountered the Western genre in films. To this British reader, coming across placenames like Rio Verde or Yuma evokes a feeling of going into a fantasy land, where anything might happen. So it was with an entirely appropriate sense of riding into the unknown that I started this book. There were familiar elements that you meet almost at once. There is the mysterious man with the shady past, the abandoned wife struggling to make ends meet for her family, the lawman...

You and I Forever by Melissa Toppen - Book Review

     My favorite series coming to a happy ending. Anna and Bentley have been through a whirlwind of emotions. From fighting their urges to leaving everything on the field these two have come across the final step in their relationship: acceptance. Accepting that love really can conquer all and guide you to places they both didn't think possible. I have loved this story from the stripper pole to the soccer field and what these two have in store for you in You and I Forever was more that I could ever have imagined.

     The start of this book had me confused and thinking I was missing something, but once you catch up with you see that these two were preparing for a future and one of them didn’t know it. One of the hiccups in their relationship was really not a bad one, but one that was going to be a hurdle. Bentley and Anna met in a strip club she continued dancing even when they were building a relationship. Now, the moment of truth comes in and love enters the equation where Bentley gives Anna the ultimatum. I kind of saw it coming but for me, was one of the one questions I had in my head. Second favorite part in the book for me.
