Review #10: On/Off by Colleen McCullough

Review #7: Too Hard to Handle by John Perich

Review #6: Dead Weight (Lizzy Gardner Series #2) by T.R. Ragan

Review #49: The Creeper by Tania Carver

For some odd reason, I could have sworn this was a Netgalley book but can’t find any record of having got it on that website. I also know I didn’t pay for it… Continue reading

Review #47: A Drink Before War by Dennis Lehane

Somehow the first in the Kenzie/Gennaro series escaped my attention. I found this little gem at a local bookstore for only $5. Love getting real books by my favorite authors at great prices!… Continue reading

Review #46: The Inner Circle by Robert Swartwood

Almost forty reviews ago, I read and reviewed Man of Wax, the first in this trilogy. Since then I have been fortunate to have some contact with the author, and he liked my… Continue reading
