One Step Too Far

One day, a normal day- and young woman named Emily gets up, leaves her house, gets on a train and never returns.

Why does she leave? Why does she run away from her husband, her family, her life?

To answer those questions, we must look over Emily’s whole life. Born a twin- she has a sister who she’s never had a great relationship with. A father who is a serial cheater. A mother who loves her- but has contributed to her toxic relationship with her twin.

But.. Emily rose above all that. She found her happily ever after, her own family, her own life… and she chose to walk away. Why?  Continue reading

Devil In The Deadline

Nichelle is enjoying a night out with friends (and dressing up for a fun costume party!) When she gets a tip about coming to a crime scene- she quickly leaves the party to find out the details.

At the crime scene, she crosses paths with her police connection, Aaron, and he warns her about the scene- talks of how he’s never seen a scene like this. Nichelle readies herself- and yet, she’s not quite prepared for how graphic the scene is. Having a pretty good relationship with Aaron and always eager to scoop Charlie- Nichelle is sure she knows why she was given a tip-off about the crime scene. But, Aaron confides there is more- the police need her touch, her sleuthing skills. She’s cracked a few cases- and her Nancy Drew ways have earned her respect.  Continue reading

Looking Back: 2014 Futuristic Friday Picks {How Many Did I Read?}

futuristic friday



So 2014 was the birth of a joint feature called Futuristic Friday. I asked Katie @ Doing Dewey to join in and she quickly agreed. For me, it’s been the best- me and Katie do have some similar reading tastes (we are both She Reads bloggers!) but Katie also loves her some nonfiction and other books- books that would fly under my radar without her mentioning them and making me aware!

When this feature started, it was something I needed. I need to break down the reading year into smaller chunks, to find the books I want to read and to focus on that (which then frees up my mind to sort through interesting review requests/free range reading) So, I told Katie that toward the end of the year, I was going to do a post that tallied up how many books I suggested/read…. Here is the post!

So.. how did I do? Continue reading

The Distance

Summary from Goodreads:

A dark, ultra-contemporary, and relentlessly paced debut thriller about a London society woman trying to put her secret criminal past behind her, and the hit man who comes to her with an impossible job she can’t refuse.

Charlotte Alton is an elegant socialite. But behind the locked doors of her sleek, high-security apartment in London’s Docklands, she becomes Karla. Karla’s business is information. Specifically, making it disappear. She’s the unseen figure who, for a commanding price, will cover a criminal’s tracks. A perfectionist, she’s only made one slip in her career—several years ago she revealed her face to a man named Simon Johanssen, an ex-special forces sniper turned killer-for-hire. After a mob hit went horrifically wrong, Johanssen needed to disappear, and Karla helped him. He became a regular client, and then, one day, she stepped out of the shadows for reasons unclear to even herself. Now, after a long absence, Johanssen has resurfaced with a job, and he needs Karla’s help again. The job is to take out an inmate—a woman—inside an experimental prison colony. But there’s no record the target ever existed. That’s not the only problem: the criminal boss from whom Johanssen has been hiding is incarcerated there. That doesn’t stop him. It’s Karla’s job to get him out alive, and to do that she must uncover the truth. Who is this woman? Who wants her dead? Is the job a trap for Johanssen or for her? But every door she opens is a false one, and she’s getting desperate to protect a man—a killer—to whom she’s inexplicably drawn. Written in stylish, sophisticated prose, The Distance is a tense and satisfying debut in which every character, both criminal and law-abiding, wears two faces, and everyone is playing a double game.

the wife the maid and the mistress books of fall

Hey darlings!

So you know that She Reads has changed the format and instead of choosing 1 book per month to read- they are doing 4 for 3 months! And calling it She Reads Books of Fall!

The good part of this is that we have much time to read, to get excited, to even fangirl over these books! Which is all happy dance and smiles all around in my book!

The 4 books for The Books of Fall are: THE HOUSE WE GREW UP IN by Lisa Jewell, THE DISTANCE by Helen Giltrow, THE SILENT SISTER by Diane Chamberlain, and THE WIFE, THE MAID, AND THE MISTRESS by Ariel Lawhon.

“But wait, T, wasn’t THE WIFE, THE MAID, and THE MISTRESS an earlier 2014 selection for She Reads?” That’s right, darling readers- you are so super-smart! It was! But, because it’s got a gorgeous new cover for it’s paperback release- it was an additional selection- to give the months a bit more bang for it’s buck! Continue reading
