#EvilNeverDies #TRRagan #BuddyReads #BookSpinBingo

This is the last book in the Lizzy Gardner series. She believes in law and order and is tired of too many vicious predators gaming the system and walking free. Lizzy is tracking down a list of Sacramento‘s worst offenders and dealing out the payback they deserve. The Sacramento Strangler is a ritualistic serial killer and is dropping corpses and cryptic clues at a shocking rate.

EadieB He‘s next on Lizzy's list. Even though this series is a bit gritty, I enjoyed the characters and the humor throughout. It's best to start with book 1 if you want to thoroughly enjoy the characters and storyline. I was happy that the series ended on a good note for Lizzy. 3d
Andrew65 Great review. 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 Thanks! 3d

Okay the last book of the series. I have put it down as a pick but mainly for the series. Yes it had a good ending, but I felt a bit let down by this book. Didn‘t wow me in the way others in the series have.

However don‘t let this dissuade you from reading the series as I really enjoyed the series. #LizzyGardnerSeriesRead #TRRagan

EadieB I felt like it was a wrap-up of the series and not really a wow book either. 7d
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘d agree. 7d
Elizabeth2 I‘m loving Almost Dead. Shame this one didn‘t quite live up to the rest, but at least you felt like it wrapped things up, which is really important if an author is ending a series. 6d

Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Tou might enjoy it more than I did. There is some good tension in the book. I just felt it changed Lizzie‘s character. 6d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I can see what you mean, after finishing Almost Dead. I wonder though, after how much trauma Lizzy has endured, especially this last book, if Ragan doesn‘t see this as a natural progression in her personality. She‘s lost so much, she‘s tired of the bad guys winning, she doesn‘t care anymore about being one of the “good guys.” Or sees that her old methods don‘t work as well, because people keep getting hurt, so she‘s trying another way. 6d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Yes you can see how this might come to pass, although I felt disappointed in her choices. 5d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I totally get that. I might bump this one up, and not wait until February to read it after this conversation! I‘m anxious to see where the group goes. I read another series, years ago, with a group of vigilante women and it was very entertaining. But it had a bit of a lighter feeling than this series and the women started out as vigilantes, so there was no inconsistency with the characters‘ personalities. 5d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 I had to bump it up as would only have access to the book up to 18th Jan. 5d

Andrew65 I‘ve just started too. 1w

Like all books in this series this was a very enjoyable read with some clever writing and unique plots. The strength in these books are the great central group of characters. This one took forward Jared‘s story from the cliff hanging end to the previous book. However whilst it was another very good reading I felt just a little bit let down by the ending and particularly the turn the book has taken. However on to the last book in the series.

EadieB Great review! I felt let down too at the end of the book so I downloaded the next book on audible and it's not as serious as the ending sounded. 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m going to have to accelerate this one as needed to read before 18th and my Kindle Unlimited subscription expires. (edited) 1w

EadieB @Andrew65 I've been listening and am already 4 hours into the book. (edited) 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB 🤣🤣🤣 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 I'll probably finish it tomorrow as I'm babysitting and folding my daughter's family of 5 clothes which takes me 4 hours so I'll be a captive listener of this audiobook. 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Most probably be later this week before I get to it. Busy at school showing applicants for my job around the school. (edited) 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 That's exciting! 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Exciting but quite surreal, interviews on 25th / 26th Jan. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 So is your last day at Easter or will it be earlier if you hire someone? 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB My last day will officially be 18th April, but last day with children and staff in school will be Friday 1st April. Notice period quite long in teaching in U.K. if Deputy need to resign by end of February. If Head / Principal already in another school need to resign by end of January. It is a large school with a good rate of pay so could attract a head teacher from another school. 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB When the school last under went inspection it was graded Outstanding so this will put some people off the job. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 So whoever takes the job may need time to give their notice. I'm not surprise your school was rated Outstanding as you put a lot of time and energy in making it an Outstanding place! Congratulations! At least you will be leaving on a positive note! 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Definitely been my life for the last 15 years and a term. Don‘t think it had really sunk in yet that I am leaving. Still feel everything as intensely as ever. Thanks 💕 (edited) 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely smacks you in the face and wakes you up to realize this is for real when you are hiring someone to take your place! 1w
Crazeedi @Andrew65 reading through the above posts, I'm really proud of you Andrew. Congrats on the years you dedicated to your school. I'll bet they're going to miss you 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB It does, but interesting,y not upset me at all, so shows it is the right decision. 1w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks 💕💕💕 They will definitely miss me,, already been plenty of tears after 15 years, but I will also miss them enormously. It has been my life for more than 15 years. 1w
tpixie @Andrew65 good luck on your next adventure! 1w
Andrew65 @tpixie Thanks 😊 1w

#AlmostDead #TRRagan #BuddyReads #BookSpinBingo

Lizzy Gardner's fiancee, Jared, is in a coma but a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. The victims were all members of the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento high school. Lizzy will need her colleagues to help her track down the killer who has a deadly revenge list before the next name may be hers. This is the 5th book of the series which seems to get better with each book.

EadieB They have a bit of wit and humor which makes me laugh but can get a bit gritty too. The characters are well-developed and work together in a nice way. I'm looking forward to the 6th book which is the last book in the series. I will definitely be missing Lizzy and friends and their wild and crazy adventures. If you like mystery thrillers then I'm sure you would like this series. 2w
Elizabeth2 Great review! Looking forward to reading this one. It‘s next on my list, after I finish the book I‘m reading. 2w
EadieB @Elizabeth2 Thanks! Hope you enjoy it too! 2w

#BookSpinBingo #December2021

Desperate for better ratings, radio psychologist Madeline Blair tells her listeners she's being stalked, unaware that her long-time listener and biggest fan, Seth Brown, will do anything to protect her. When her publicity stunt is revealed, Seth becomes enraged by her deceit and dangerously unhinged.

EadieB When her friends mysteriously begin to vanish and damning evidence points to Madeline, she turns to private investigator Lizzy Gardner for help. Lizzy knows her way around a murderer's mind, after surviving her own horrifying ordeal at the hands of a serial killer years ago. 1mo
EadieB As Lizzy closes in, Seth Brown is undeterred. Madeline wanted a stalker and now she has one. Nothing is going to stop him. He's obsessed. 1mo
EadieB This series gets better with each book. This one comes with a warning of sexual and gritty content that is hard to read at times. This is a character-driven series. A new character, Kitally, is introduced and she quickly becomes another favorite. We get to follow Lizzy and her cohorts as they investigate situations for their clients. Lizzy's relationship with Jared is moving forward. 1mo

EadieB Hayley is still focused on revenge for Brian who killed her mother and raped her. Jessica is about to train for the FBI.
The surprise ending made me want to delve into the next installment. If you love mystery thrillers I'm sure you will enjoy this series.

This book is about a serial killer who is terrorizing Sacramento CA. Lizzy is compelled to go after the Lovebird Killer. It is a reminder for Lizzy Gardner who had an ordeal with the serial killer, Spiderman, in the past. I found this book to be the best book by far than the other two. Although it is more than gruesome and very dark, I found it hard-to-put-down and the other books hardly held my interest.

EadieB I enjoyed all the quotes at the beginning of the chapters that were references from other serial killers. I enjoy true crime books about serial killers so that was an added feature for me. I am looking forward to the next book in the series as the books seem to be getting better with each book. If you enjoy dark and gritty books, then I think you will enjoy this series. 2mo
Elizabeth2 Another great review! I enjoyed those quotes, too. Definitely gruesome and gritty! 2mo
Andrew65 Book 2 was my favourite in this series so far. 2mo
