I have such an obsession with these older Harlequin romances and the dramatic clench covers! I also love the names, usually.. but Josh? Mike? Those aren‘t the names I expect lol 😄😄😄 (btw, no offense to all the modern Joshes and Mikes, much love 😍😍😍)

I can‘t recommend enough!! Intriguing and unique plot, check! Twists aplenty, check! Characters that are richly developed and flawed… check, check, check!! I couldn‘t put it down!!

Jemgirl2014 I'm so tempted to read this but I didn't really care for his book "Horrorstor". Would you still recommend this to me? Honest question. ? 9mo
TheRomantiCate @Jemgirl2014 I haven‘t read “Horrorstor” but I do recommend this one. I couldn‘t get into the Vampire book so I went out on a limb to read this one because I have a fascination with old school slasher movies and it totally delivers!! 9mo
Jemgirl2014 @TheRomantiCate Thanks! The whole Final Girls trope is pretty cool. Even though I've always liked a good slasher, the whole "final girl" concept didn't dawn on me until I read Riley Sager's "Final Girls" lol 9mo

TheRomantiCate @Jemgirl2014 I loved that book too!! I went into the book thinking they‘d be similar but they are delightfully different 🤩🤩🤩🤩 9mo
Jemgirl2014 @TheRomantiCate Yeah, that's one of my favorites by Sager! Good to know that they're different. Thanks for the recommendation! 😊 9mo
TheRomantiCate @Jemgirl2014 no problem 🤩🤩 let me know what you think if you read it 😁😁 9mo
Jemgirl2014 @TheRomantiCate I most definitely will! 😀 9mo

Some people read romance, some thrillers... the real MVPs read about MURDER 😎😎 #poolside

FlowerFairy Have spent the day doing housework and listening to true crime podcasts. 🙌🏻 12mo
TheRomantiCate @FlowerFairy that is truly the best time to listen to them! What podcasts do you listen to?? 🤓🤓 12mo
FlowerFairy I started back in 2016 with My Favorite Murder, but haven‘t listened to that in ages. I like Morbid, Case File, True Crime Garage and Generation Why. Which do you enjoy? 12mo
See All 6 Comments
TheRomantiCate @FlowerFairy I listen to My Favorite Murder but I‘m terribly behind. I also like Morning Cup of Murder.. it‘s like a today in history thing. And Female Criminals from Parcast... 12mo
FlowerFairy Ooo! Had not heard of Morning Cup of Murder! Will add that one to my list. Thank you! I have a fairly long work commute and frequently listen to podcasts. 12mo
TheRomantiCate @FlowerFairy yeah Morning Cup has an extensive backlog and the episodes are just about 10-15 minutes... 12mo

Another incredible series wrapped up by the incomparable Sarah MacLean!! This one is definitely a case of saving the best for last!! Grace and Ewan‘s story made me feel all the feelings and fall in love with both of them!! Grace is the strong badass heroine and Ewan is the man that is happy to stand back and watch his queen 😍😍 i cannot wait for her next series coming later this year!!

Leelee08 Right?! Hell‘s Belles are going to be awesome! 1y

Truer words never spoken... I‘ve definitely been told that I‘d look a lot nicer if I smiled more or worried about the tone of my voice and whether what I said would be taken as a “bitchy” statement. Sometimes you just have to step up and own it... do you, and be who you are!! ♥️♥️

So very sad... this breaks my heart as she was one of my very favorite authors. I discovered her books in 7th grade and felt like just an adult when I would go into the “Adult Fiction” section of the library to pick out her books... I am proud to say that I own and have read most of her books 💔💔

MarriedtoMrT She was my gateway to adult fiction, too, and I saw so many others post similar thoughts on Twitter. ❤️ 2y
