Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance

Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance

February 2, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance is the second Ali Reynolds novel I have read and like a good wine the series gets better with age. Impressions While Reading I thought the subject matter of polygamy, while maybe not original, was well established with an intricate web of action. Certain aspects were a little […]

Why I picked it up: I loved Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King and wanted to continue on with Hodges ‘ unconventional crime-solving with Finders Keepers. First Impression: It was a set up for a “creepy crawly” will Morris Bellamy stop with Rothstein? Where could this story lead? In other words, I was drawn in with […]

First Impressions Bad Wolf by Nele Neuhaus could be described as a Dr Phil episode on child abuse.  It is disturbing, yet a train wreck that one cannot tear away from.  Impressions While Reading Pia and Oliver are back and just as sharp as ever with a nail-biting crime at hand.  The novel had me […]

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus

First Impressions By reading the title Snow White Must Die, one would think it Nele Neuhaus has written a was a Snow White retelling. It is dark like Grimm’s Tale, but the comparison stops there. Impressions While Reading Pia and Oliver were fantastic detective characters. Their star power as a team reminded me of Rob […]

Book Review: The Bat Harry Hole #1

Book Review: The Bat Harry Hole #1

June 3, 2015 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Fond Of Jo Nesbo writes in a calculated manner. He is slow and steady handing out details like breadcrumbs and if one isn’t paying attention could slip by unnoticed. Besides Harry, an eclectic cast of characters clowns, aborigines, and strippers — oh my! With such a diverse grouping, it held one’s attention. An example being […]

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 […]

Descent by Tim Johnston

Descent by Tim Johnston

March 30, 2015 Whitney Review 0 Comments

I’m a true crime junkie, one of my favorite channels is ID (Investigation Discovery) which plays a loop of Disappeared shows where women go out for a quart of milk and never comes back. The synopsis of Descent, involving a young girl who goes missing seemed to fit into that disturbing genre of choice. Fond […]

The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood

The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood

October 28, 2014 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Fond of: In The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood the character The Lover is creepy.  Like Buffalo Bill creepy, taking embalming to a completely different level.  He was a perfect villain.  He has you terrified of him but not to the extent that the reader is looking over their shoulder scary.  The Killer Next Door had […]

Review: Until You’re Mine

Review: Until You’re Mine

October 17, 2014 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Initial Thoughts: To be honest when I first picked up Until You’re Mine the plot reminded me of a Lifetime movie I had seen involving a deranged nanny who desperately wanted a child.  I hate comparing books to Lifetime movies as it can quickly cheapen it.  That is never my intention.  Despite this judgement the […]

Review: The Wicked Girls

Review: The Wicked Girls

October 8, 2014 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Fond of: Novels about devious children have always interested me, thus the plot for The Wicked Girls drew me in. I thought the concept of how one day or action could drastically change someones life is an interesting idea and the topsy-turvyness was well executed. The flashbacks to 1986, the day of the crime were well paced and […]
