Little Face by Sophie Hannah

October 27, 2016 Whitney Review 7 Comments

First Impressions I have always been a sucker for “If you liked…” This recommendation is not always well received but in the case of finding a Tana French replacement Sophie Hannah fit the bill. Little Face, the first book in the Spilling CID series has a duo that is just as unique as Rob Ryan […]

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

October 6, 2016 Whitney Review 4 Comments

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed in The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. The plot was so enticing and appeared to be a thriller with a twist. Sadly, the characters were one-dimensional. Truthfully, I did not care for any of them. This was to the point where I didn’t […]
