Published: Ballantine Books - October 18th, 2022

As much as I usually want love to prevail in a story, this time I had to ask myself if Harriet and Edward’s love was worth the risk of losing lives. Through confessional tapes that reveal only part of the truth, the reader is taken on an emotional rollercoaster of love, doubt, courage, and fear. No one is blameless, everybody is hiding something, and it’s safe to say the holidays are not going to be a fun time for this family.

There was a saying I knew growing up, "A lie getshalf way around the world before the truth had time to get it's pants on" that i8s this book. It starts off as a sad story about a young girl, and suddenly takes a quick left turn. As the book progresses you are lead to believe countless lies until you can't figure out what the truth is. I was constantly left guessing until the end, which caught me completely off guard!

Winnie loves to draw the Nightmare creatures from the forest, but when she starts encountering them in real life they turned out to be more then she expected. In this mysterious fantasy world, the Nightmares are Winnie’s obsession, but without training they are even more deadly.

Published: Berkley - June 5th, 2018

This romance book blew me away. It’s unlike any other romance I’ve read, despite having some of my favorite tropes. It opened my eyes to new cultures and experiences, but despite those I still connected to the characters and felt their emotions as if they were my own. A genius who pretends to know better falls for a fashion designer and struggles to admit how she’s really feeling. I’m definitely not hiding how I feel about this book!

What’s better than people watching while on vacation? Think Great Gatsby but creepier and more suspicious. Casey sees some rather interesting things while struggling with sobriety and haunted by the loss of her husband. A new couple has moved into the huge glass house across the lake, and with that, chaos ensues. This book was all around a thrill to read and ended in a way I never would have guessed!

Published: Mira Books - January 30th, 2024

This is a wonderful mix of quantum mechanics, particle acceleration, time travel, and a little romance. Sometimes a genuine connection makes everything is a little easier to handle especially when nobody around you knows that the last four days keep happening. We follow two characters through their journeys of loss, hope, grief, and a lot of repetition. I fully believe that small things, and little moments can make all the difference to someone and this book really puts that on display.

This book is a wild ride of romance and suspense. Maggie Ellis reluctantly returns to her hometown with the intention of keeping her past buried.
