Fond Of The Ghost of the Mary Celeste by by Valerie Martinwell written and descriptive to a t. The characters were not lacking in development adding a boost to the overall story.

What You Left Behind by Samantha Hayes

Fond Of   I read Until Your Mine by Samantha Hayes last year.  I thought it was a great, original thriller and therefore was excited to see a sequel What You Left Behind. What You Left Behind establishes another twisted thriller in the beginnings of a heart-pounding series. Samantha Hayes kept me guessing who did […]

Fond Of   The most important aspect of Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova is that it brings awareness to Huntington’s Disease. Being epileptic, I understand how important it is to “get the word out there” and admire the novel for that. Lisa Genova creates an emotional roller-coaster and has imagined characters that touch with […]

The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine

Fond Of I didn’t know much, if anything about The Twelve Dancing Princesses (of which this story is based on) and appreciated that my ignorance did not have to factor into the enjoyment of The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine. The characters were fun and well-developed. Each sister had a unique personality […]
