Next Girl to Die by Dea Poirier

I am hugely fascinated by True Crime yet when it comes to reading fiction, crime is not a genre I naturally gravitate towards. I’m not sure why because when I do read crime fiction, I usually enjoy it quite a bit. The Next Girl to Die is the debut novel of author Dea Poirier and is the first in a series focusing around a detective called Claire Calderwood. my review […]

Fatal Shadows by Josh Lanyon

This book caught me totally unawares. I’m not even sure how I ended up reading this but the synopsis sounded interesting so decided to give it a try. Well I ended up being totally sucked into the story and (more importantly) the characters. Adrien English was a delightful main character and I really enjoyed being in his head. The mystery was interesting and kept me guessing, but it was Adrien […]
