In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

First of all; one of the reasons I wanted to read this book was the clever title. We've all heard the old rhyme "In a dark, dark wood, there was a dark, dark house, and in that dark, dark house, etc." The title alone sets up a creepy atmosphere. At the beginning of the book,… Continue reading In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

The First Wife by Erica Spindler

This was a good book. It isn't one of my favorites, but it was a good "quick & dirty" suspense read. I use that phrase for books that you can easily get into and finish because the plot moves along fast and there isn't too much fluff to cause the reader to get sidetracked or… Continue reading The First Wife by Erica Spindler

This book will be published April 14, 2015. I really enjoyed this suspenseful, fast-paced psychological thriller. The author weaves together multiple story lines of four women living in the same community with loose ties to one another. As the story line progresses, much of the plot comes together in startling ways, with connections to past… Continue reading Where They Found Her – Kimberly McCreight
