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.

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 …

Review for The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse

Review for The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse

The Art of Hiding is my first from Prowse and it did not disappoint at all. It is full of emotions and brings a lot of questions to the surface that certainly make you think.

Nina has suffered a devastating loss, her husband dying. It was sudden and completely unexpected in Nina’s perfect world. With the loss comes more hard times than she thought. Her way of life and the husband she though she knew were all torn apart. There is no time for to worry about all the material things that she has now lost, her boys need her more than ever. Being penniless, homeless and questioning everything you thought you knew about the man you love isn’t the …

Review for When Life Happened by Jewel E. Ann

Review for When Life Happened by Jewel E. Ann

This was a hard book for me to read. I went in blind, only reading the first couple of lines of the blurb on Amazon, and decided to try it. I wasn’t really prepared for what I got. I had a hard time getting past the cheating, it was a big issue with me, to the point I had to think about not finishing the book. In the end, I pushed through. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail of what all happened for that will give it all away.

This is filled with flawed characters, and they all have their own baggage, some more than others. But they pick themselves up and keep on moving, maybe …

Especially when memories start to come of a man she doesn’t know, places she’s never been and she remembers things she shouldn’t. That is, till she meets him one night and all the memories draw her to him even more. There was a whole lot more to all of this though and there is another person that …
