Review for The Truth We Bury by Barbara Taylor Sissel

Review for The Truth We Bury by Barbara Taylor Sissel

 

 

 

 

I randomly pick books from Kindle Unlimited, and The Truth We Bury sounded pretty good, and books with a mystery in them are always something I will give a try. It didn’t disappoint either, it has plenty of family secrets and murder and a mystery that I enjoyed trying to figure out.

Shea and AJ’s wedding is coming up soon, and they are happy and looking forward to it, but when a murder is committed and AJ is soon goes missing, secrets begin to surface.

The dual POV’s worked so well with giving us the reader such a great view into the lives of Lily and Dru and their families and their histories. There are no perfect characters, they …

Release Day Review for Falsies (The Makeup Series, #1) by Olive East

Release Day Review for Falsies (The Makeup Series, #1) by Olive East

Wow, do I begin with this one. I really enjoyed this, it hooked me from the start and just adored the main character Ollie and her story, especially when Brooks came in the picture. Anyway, we meet Ollie not long after a devastating loss of father, it hit her hard and everyone around is afraid that she might take her life just the same. Her best friends walk around on egg shells and treat her like she is fragile. I won’t give away to much more other than, it has brings all kinds of feels with it.

Ollie believes she is broken, and no one will want her the way she is. The thing is, she really isn’t broken, and …

Review for Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles Trilogy #1) by Jodi Meadows

Review for Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles Trilogy #1) by Jodi Meadows

Before She Ignites is the first book in a new series. It centers around Mira, a young girl who has always loved dragons, and when she learns that they are being smuggled off the island, she confronts those responsible. On;y she is thrown in the pit. An awful place where the council only sends the worst of the worst. She has been betrayed. Before She Ignites will open your mind to a beautiful world filled with gorgeous islands, magic but a place where politics and betrayals overshadow the beauty.

Mira isn’t a perfect girl, she has her flaws. She suffers from anxiety attacks, she has OCD, meaning she counts, everything. I felt for and understand her pain. It is something …

Review for Beneath the Surface by Sibel Hodge

Review for Beneath the Surface by Sibel Hodge

I haven’t read very many conspiracy theory type books, I really don’t think I have ever read one like this now that I really think of it. They were mostly steampunk or historical ones. This however, is a pharmaceutical conspiracy theory, with murders, unexplained suicides and full of suspense.

But, why? What made this boy do something so horrific. The more Holly searches for answers, the deeper she finds herself in the middle of something she never dreamed. Things become more dangerous, not only for …

Review for Something Like Happy by Eva Woods

Review for Something Like Happy by Eva Woods

Something Like Happy is one those books that I read the blurb, it sounded like it would be a good read. But once I got started I realized that I’d started a book that put me way out of comfort zone. I tend to stay away from books that anything to do with people being ill. It’s just a person thing I have, but I decided that I would go ahead and try to give this a chance and I’m happy that I did. I will try and keep the spoilery to a minimum.

One of the two main characters, Annie, I didn’t care for at first, but I could see why see why she was so standoffish, sad and …

Review for Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil

Review for Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil

I read the blurb for this and knew that I had to read it, because I wanted to know to who behind Aidens disappearance. Silent Child is every parents worst nightmare, having your child kidnapped and never knowing what happened to them. But in Silent Child, the boy comes back 10 years later and to find the answers to where he has been is the most important thing to his Mother.

Emma was a young mother, barely out of high school when she had Aiden, and losing him during the flood broke her. Emma had began to put her life back together, she’s remarried, and was expecting a baby, when Aiden comes home. I personally couldn’t imagine going through …

Review for A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang

Review for A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang

I am not much a historical reader, but there are a couple time periods that I really enjoy, anything from the mid teens of the 1900’s to the 1930’s I love to read about. And, A Beautiful Poison is set within this time period and has so many things going for it, there is chemistry as in actual chemistry and murders, mystery and dark family secrets that no one ever wanted to be revealed. A page turner from the start.

Kang did a wonderful job giving us such a vivid picture of the world in 1918. The houses where the wealthy live, the streets and buildings in town. We also see the factories and stores and the apartments where the …
