Recursion | Blake Crouch
post image
Pickpick

WOW 4.5 stars - I was completely blown away. Thriller plus Sci-Fi equals one crazy, mind-boggling, addictive and suspenseful ride!! Once I picked it up I couldn‘t put it down. Recursion is a must read especially if you gave Dark Matter a thumbs up.
Excited to hear Netflix has bought the movie rights. I can‘t wait to see it.

The Perfect Wife | JP Delaney

Mehso-so

3 ☆ The Perfect Wife delves into artificial intelligence which was interesting but scary to think if this would ever happen. I loved JP Delaney‘s two prior novels but alas, is not the case with this latest. I‘m in the minority here so please don‘t let my rating detour you from picking this up.

4.5 stars! A fast-moving psychological page-turner with surprise twists around every corner. Lies, secrets, and one family‘s hidden cover-up you‘d have to see to believe. A jaw dropping revelation at the end tied all the pieces together brilliantly! I recommend to anyone who enjoys a DARK psychological thriller with mystery that has you second guessing yourself to its very end. 🖤

4.5 ★ My first book by Laura Lippman proved to be impressive with intriguing mysteries involving two missing persons and a storyline centering on an interesting female protagonist, and a ghost. All happening during the start of the civil rights era in mid 60‘s Baltimore where racial tension and the separation of class‘s were prevalent. ❥ #netgalley #WilliamMorrow

4 ☆ Because You‘re Mine is very thought-provoking filled with tragedy, flawed characters and twists. There were many “ah-ha” moments, as things aren‘t what you think they are or appear to be. The ending was quite startling and unexpected.. seriously WOW. I love when books have a finish like this one did.

5 ☆ A feisty female antagonist, impossible to put down!! Josie‘s my new favorite female hero, love her. And finding this is ALSO part of a series, a huge plus in my book. A sinister, twisted game of cat & mouse, dark buried secrets, lies, murder. The suspense had my stomach twisting in knots. This was one intense wild ride that I didn‘t want to end!! 🖤

4.5 ★ I love a great crime fiction novel with a relatable strong female antagonist, a BONUS is this story addresses heavy issues straight off our front page. I was quickly absorbed into the high society scandals, human trafficking, murder, a possible serialist + the good old boy mentality of bad men that wear a badge; I devoured it in one sitting.

Be careful what you wish for. THIS DREAM HOUSE IS ANYTHING BUT for Stella & Jason.

4 devilish 😈😈😈😈 disturbing stars! How far would you go to be a Good Samaritan? What line would you be willing to cross?
Jess Ryder has written a clever psychological thriller with lies, betrayals & murder all surrounding Stella‘s dream home—Westhill House.
With dual storylines & unreliable characters this was a puzzler for me as it kept me guessing to the end.

☀️🌊 A quick S U M M E R Y novel giving you all the feels of the Cape‘s sand dunes, beaches and sea. It centers on post-graduate Eve who‘s trying to find herself during time spent as the famed NYorker writer Henry Grey‘s assistant. I love all the mentions of classic/fict books + adored librarian Alva.
Karen Dukess‘s first novel is well-written w/an imaginative storyline + intriguing characters (all less than perfect) making this a 4 ★ pick for me.

The Golden Hour: A Novel | Beatriz Williams

4.5 ☆ My third and favorite so far of Beatriz Williams!! I loved the WWl/WWll historical settings & was fascinated w/the Duke and Duchess of Windsor‘s over the top lifestyle. With two likable main characters that alternated between Elfriede during the turn of the 19th century + Lulu in the 1940‘s w/spies, marriage + murder I was completely engaged from start to finish. I enjoyed the intriguing dual storylines and wasn‘t quite ready for it to end.

Say No to the Duke | Eloisa James

5 hot and fiery stars!! 🔥 Say No to the Duke is the 4th novel in The Wilde‘s of Lindow Castle series and (yesss!) is the first book in this series with a female lead character—Lady Boadicea (Betsy) Wilde. A wonderful story all around but very unique with the issue of PTSD addressed. I especially enjoyed the pokes of fun and steamy love/hate relationship going on between Betsy and Jeremy! Can be read as a stand alone.

*Released June 25
