The first novel I‘ve read by this author—and her first piece of adult fiction (she usually writes YA)—is an emotional and gut-wrenching journey through the lives of two young women. Publication is expected May 31. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#yerba-buena

TheBookHippie I have it sitting here… I‘ve been looking at it for weeks 🤣🤣🤣🤣. I can‘t make myself read sad. 1mo
JoyBlue @TheBookHippie I hear you! I got approved for the NetGalley on February 15, but didn't start reading until May 14 (finished on the 15th—exactly three months after approval—yikes!). I'm really glad that I read it, but it may not be the book for everyone, especially at this time. 💙 1mo

This tense mystery built its way to a high rating from me and then tore itself down. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#two-nights-in-lisbon

Vansa I absolutely loved this book.I found it timely,and gripping,and I felt the sexual assault scenes were not gratuitous at all.They actually aren't described in a voyeuristic way,and you get a sense of the female protagonist's horror and shock.Additionally,sexual assault is not used as a catalyst for a man's trauma.The thriller aspects were edge of the seat,and the author switches genres beautifully.(1/n) 2mo
Vansa Also,what he's writing about is so pervasive.Unlike a lot of books that seem to throw in sexual assault for titillation or merely shock value( both My absolute darling and A little life),this book emphasises the survival,and systemic difficulties part.(n/n) 2mo
JoyBlue @Vansa Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Vansa! 2mo

This mystery starring ex-cop Corey Douglas—and his human and canine partners—is funny and sarcastic, and has enough red herrings to keep you on your toes. Publication is expected March 15. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#citizen-k9-the-k-team-3
