Review: Someone We Know

Rating: 4 Stars Shari Lapena is an author I can always rely on to deliver the goods. Her book, The Couple Next Door, is one that I recommend to anyone who wants to read thrillers. While her other books are not as highly recommended, Someone We Know comes quite close. The twists and turns leave... Continue Reading →

Review: Believe Me

Rating: 4 Stars When I read J. P. Delaney's The Girl Before, I thought it was good, except the last part which fell flat for me. I don't have any such complaints with Believe Me. This is my kind of book, with enough twists and turns, and grey characters to make me happy. This is... Continue Reading →

Review: Lethal White

Rating: 3.5 Stars I think it was a mistake to read this book right after reading Career Of Evil. For one, I kept wanting to read one more page till I realized that I had spent all night reading it, and for another, it was not because of the mystery but because I just wanted... Continue Reading →

Review: Career Of Evil

Rating: 4 Stars First of all, I don't know why I didn't read this book earlier, considering I have had this one since it came out in 2015. My excuse is that I made the mistake of reading reviews which said that it ended on a cliffhanger, and that it would be years before the... Continue Reading →

Review: An Unwanted Guest

Rating: 4 Stars An old-fashioned murder mystery, set in an isolated hotel, where everyone is a suspect. What's not to like in a book like this? An Agatha Christie fan like me can never get enough of these mysteries, and Shari Lapena delivers the goods most satisfactorily. Ten people check into Mitchell's Inn, a beautiful...
