Thank you Tulsa City County Library for allowing this wonderful book to travel to Davenport, Iowa!!!! 😄 I‘m really enjoying this series so far. DCI Kim Stone faces off with a well respected psychologist, who is assisting with some recent cases. Stone doesn‘t trust her and digs deeper!!!! A thrilling ride as Kim battles her personal demons and brilliantly solves the cases put before her!!! Highly recommend 💜💜💜

This book is so cute!!!! Grace has the weight of the world on her shoulders. Sarah is trying to save her town. She needs Grace to stay permanently and help but Grace has other plans. This story is about a small town with its quirky residents, friendships, magic, and a little romance. So, so good!!!! Highly recommend. 💜💜💜

I‘m torn with this one. The main story seemed long and drawn out. However, the theme running throughout saved it. Self exploration, mother/daughter relationships, friendship, and women supporting women were some of the messages interwoven in the story.

This was a GREAT book!!! An FBI agent literally falls into a mass grave and it‘s Sayer‘s job to unravel the mystery of new corpses and old skeletons. So many twists and turns and suspects. Sayer is up against a true psychopath, or two, or three. The main mystery can be read as a stand-alone but for the sake of background and sub plots I highly recommend you read the book Caged first.

Really good!!!! Emmy and Books are chasing a serial killer, a Robin Hood type terrorist,and informant inside the FBI. Super exciting and a plethora of suspects. I‘m mad because I didn‘t realize there was one before this. Now I have to read the series backwards. 😡

Just Stone being Stone, as usual. It‘s so much fun. He‘s got it all, women, money, more money, and friends in high places. He‘s good looking and charming. He people would stop trying to constantly kill him, his life would be perfect. 😎

This was sooooo good!!! I was disappointed it wasn‘t a Lincoln Rhyme novel but it didn‘t disappoint. Colter Shaw collects rewards for a living. It‘s an interesting life. He finds himself in the middle of a series of kidnapping/murders. Can he collect his rewards and stop the game. The subplot of his background and family is also very interesting and leaves me hopeful there will be another book. Highly recommend!!!!!

This one sent my heart racing quite a few times. Maggie I‘ve sent in the mouth of the beast, Berlin, to help a Resistance group. Get in, plant the bug, get out. Those are her orders. Things don‘t go as planned. Great book. My favorite of the series, so far. 💜💜💜

rretzler I‘m a fan of the series! I was a little disappointed that there wasn‘t a new one this year, but it‘s coming! 4w
Booknerd2 @rretzler It‘s newly discovered for me. Someone on here recommended it. Maybe you? I‘m really enjoying. Gives me a Maisie Dobbs fix while I‘m waiting for her new one. 4w
rretzler Yes, both the Maisie and Maggie books are somewhat similar, especially now that WWII has started for Maisie. I also enjoy both series! 4w
kspenmoll I love this series. Waiting hopefully for a new addition soon! Audio versions great to listen too. 4w

rretzler You‘re quite welcome. If I remember correctly, there was one around the 3rd or 4th (maybe the 5th) that wasn‘t quite as good, then they picked up again. The last one (8th) was a little different but good, and the 9th comes out next February. 1mo

If you love serial killers, suspense, brilliant police officers, and fast paced reads, then you have to start this series. In this one, Hunter and Garica are tracking someone who‘s kidnapping women and keeping them several weeks before killing them. The methods in which he kills them makes me slightly afraid of this author. He is truly diabolical. Great book and series. Highly recommend 💜💜💜

I really enjoyed this book. The genre is Christian Fiction but I would say its more historical romance. Verity Banning travelled to the Indies with her 2 sisters to take over their father‘s sugar plantation and fell smitten with a ship Captain. Now she sets off to America to start her own path and find her beau. She will find nothing she expects.

So good and so much fun. The FBI team has to save a billionaire and ultimately the world. A brilliant maniac has launched a nuclear satellite into space and plans to detonate it.

This book was dark and twisted , but I wouldn‘t say graphic. It was between a pick and so-so. I liked the writing, easy to read and quick paced. A lot of twists and turns that I didn‘t see coming. My so-so would probably be the ending. I just didn‘t like it. I may have been horrified by it or just disappointed. 😔 Read it and decide for yourself.😎 I‘ve seen a lot of mixed reviews. I will say, I would read another by this author.
