She wrapped her shaking fingers in the hem of her sweater to avoid damaging any fingerprints as she slid open the rear patio door, following the trail of blood.
Devlin & Falco are back at it, this fast paced legal thriller will have you up into the night trying to finish it.
When Devlin‘s daughter, Tori, becomes the center of an investigation things start to unravel quickly. With Falco as her partner and help from Sadie Cross , they don‘t stand down until all the mysteries are solved.

Although we are quarantined at home until tomorrow, and my husband and I still can‘t taste/smell we are making the best of it. Thankful for healthy kids during this time, and the opportunity to spend more time with them.
Hope everybody has a great day🍁

1. Looking forward to finishing the tagged book, I am hopeful to get more reading done afterwards, but not counting on it.
2.my favorite dish is the stuffing- I could eat just stuffing all day and be as happy as can be.
Grateful for a working stove after 2 months, and cooler weather in Michigan. @ozma.of.oz
1. Colleen Hoover - all her books bring me comfort and heartbreak.
2. Not a gratitude journal, but I do try to journal everyday.
3. Tagged book- it‘s been my favorite book for years, and I don‘t see that ever changing 🥰
After 7 books we finally have the truth about Emma‘s life. Emma has to learn how to live with all the secrets she just unfolded, and begins to unravel another as we are once again left with a cliff hanger.
I enjoyed the different characters in this one, and kind of glad it didn‘t have the happy ending that I was expecting to find- this ending felt much more realistic given the circumstances.
Overall the series is good, not a must read.
For the last 6 weeks I‘ve set aside reading to find a new hobby, welding. Tonight was my last class, and I‘m super bummed because this has been like therapy for me.
We only had junk pieces to create something with and I came up with this piece. I have some things to add, but overall I‘m super proud of myself.
I officially love being creative.
Onto the 7th book of this series, and I‘m a little closer to finding out the truth of Emma‘s past.
Emma returns to Feathered Nest where she is being hunted by what seems like 2 different people.
The relationship with Sam is getting stronger, and their bond is undeniable. We meet a new character Dean who may hold the key to all this.
Will the next book give the answers we want? Maybe, but probably not.
Deadly Express ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Hunt ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is a 16 book series and I‘m currently reading #5 they have all been so-so, but I‘m intrigued by the back story of them so I‘m continuing on.
Emma is still back in Sherwood with Sam, but I believe we are closer to finding out just where Greg went, what happened to her mom, and who her dad really is.
The editing is poor in all the books so far, and the stories are sometimes lacking. But that being said they are a quick read.
I want to continue the series because I‘m intrigued to figure out who is behind the letters and gifts to Emma, but that‘s the only plot that seems to be holding my attention at this point.
While the book was a quick read, I felt like it was lacking a lot. Emma goes back to the only place she has called home to help solve the disappearances of several missing children. It all felt very bare bones with no depth to the actual storyline.
The first time I read this one I finished it in a day, trying to take my time with it now before I send it off for #LPMBC
Oliver is happy to have company today while we snuggle on the couch and read. ❤️
Let me just start by saying, this was a great read.
Although, I question how the heck Emma ever became an FBI agent, also- why were no questions answered about the random dead guy?
I was convinced of who the killer was from the start, but then started questioning that throughout the book- and was pretty pleased with the ending.
This was a great fast paced book, and I‘ll be giving the second book a try.
Many sentences underlined, many thoughts pondered.
Virgil and Nathan are uncle and nephew, who‘s love for each other is easy to see from the start.
Virgil is a “hired thug” and Nathan is the lost boy trying to find his way.
Together they bring down the world around them, while rising up for one another.
While it is somewhat of a slow going book I really enjoyed it, and by the end couldn‘t get enough. Can‘t wait to pass this along for #LMPBC
I rounded out my reading goal today with The Last Protector.
Betrayal, secrets, and a little romance all thrown into one.
While it was a good book, that grabbed my attention I felt the storyline was lacking. You get the gist of it, but it all just seems very rushed and a little to unrealistic.
If you want a quick read with some action to it check it out.
Every family has this secrets, and every daughter has at one point in time felt like they couldn‘t talk to their parents. Gemma is a new graduate with a full life planned ahead of her, but she is quickly thrown into turmoil.
Her parents come to her rescue, but at what price to them? Through life‘s ups and downs- will they survive all the lies in the past?
There‘s almost always an evil twin, right? This book has some major evil twins vibes all throughout.
Rose keeps a journal of all her memories from childhood, while Fern works at a library and avoids any sensory overload situations. The two are twins and more often than not, you will find them together.
A story that shows the struggles of sisterhood and family, love and pain, with some great humor thrown in.
This book was highly recommended, and I‘ve been loving Swedish authors lately- but I loaned it from my library and it got automatically returned yesterday, meaning I had it for 21 days. It typically takes me at most 5 days to finish a book. I was 67% of the way through.
It had a “good” storyline and I enjoyed the character Allan, but that was about it. Maybe I will finish it later, but for now I had to DNF it. What were your thoughts on this one?
Let‘s try this again- with the correct group this time.
Winter themed mystery/thriller! These are my 4 choices, let me know your thoughts or if you‘ve already read them! Wolf Pack is part of a series so that is something to consider. Can‘t wait to swap!

How do I even begin to describe this wonderful book?
Sameness is meant to make it so everybody is “happy” and “safe” but in reality it means death and destruction is around every corner.
People are killed because they are different or born a twin, families never experience love because that is a word to vast to really mean anything.
The world is grey, because if it was in color we would all be different and that‘s not acceptable.
Present and past, we go on an amazing journey with many characters. Through America to Poland we travel the world.
Eddie and Babica were my two favorites, both so strong and brave. Their bond is undeniable, and they offer so many lessons.
This is not a book I would typically pick up and am so glad I did.
If you are looking for a tear jerker and amazing story you should read this.
Have you ever loved something so fiercely that you would do anything to save it?
That‘s what the people of Beartown do, and the story is something you will never forget.
Backman makes you slow down, realize what you have in front of you, and crave what life is really all about.
It‘s not often that a sequel is better, but in this case I think it worked out that way. I will remember this book for all the days to come.
It‘s been a while since I really felt like I knew a character, but this book really did it for me.
Ove reminds me so much of my late Grandpa Mel, both men can be described as hard headed, set in their ways, fiercely loving, and above all treasured.
These characters were so well written and you felt like you were right there in the mix the entire time.
All I have to say is: go read it right now.
I‘m on a Fredrik Backman kick lately, and this one is not disappointing in the slightest.
I‘m loving this old grumpy man who just wants to carry out a plan, but everything is getting in his way.
If you haven‘t taken a chance on Backman you should, his style of writing is genius, and I love all the sarcasm and bluntness he puts into all of his characters.
Self-Help, truth and tips. I loved this book! It is so easy to fall out of love, but even harder to stay in love. I can‘t wait to implement these new tips and tricks into my relationship and discover new things about myself and my spouse.
This is a must read for anybody, even if you aren‘t in a relationship.
Recent book haul from my local used bookstore.
I‘ve read Lone Wolf before, but had to get another copy since I loaned my copy out and never got it back.
It‘s been a while since I‘ve read any Jodi Picoult, Nicholas Sparks or CJ Box- but I‘ve never read anything by Alex Garland.
Which should I dive into first?
A bank robbery, a hostage situation, and 9 people- all with stories to tell.
Anxious People is heartfelt and beautiful. If you don‘t put the book down feeling like you didn‘t just rip your heart out, well then, maybe your life is more put together.
The lessons learned from Backman are deep and I‘ll cling to them for days to come.
Simply put, it doesn‘t matter what this book was about, only that you read it.
Mail came today- I was so excited to see three postcards from #litsylove ❤️
These last few months have been rough, but this brightened my entire week! Can‘t wait to meet new people, and learn so much! These stickers are absolutely adorable, I had to hop on Amazon and get some sticker packs and card stock to respond because these just sparked a creative nerve in my brain. Thank you soo much @catiewithac & @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 💕
People Kill People- while the title is intriguing, that‘s about the only part of the book that is. You meet several different characters who are all tied together in some way or another, and each one is faced with a different problem, where violence tries to tempt them. I would put in a TW: guns, white supremacy, and minimal abuse descriptions.
⭐️ star- would not recommend this to anyone.
Just a little introduction post- my names Takara, but I was given the nickname Carl at a young age and it has just stuck with me since then.
I love a good mystery/suspense novel, as well as romance. I am a little ashamed to admit I didn‘t read Harry Potter until I was in my 20‘s but have since read the series 4 times.
Coffee and tea (hot or iced) gets me through my days. And I‘m on the verge of being a notebook and pen hoarder. 💛💛
When I think of Ireland the first thing that comes to mind is rolling hills, and dreary days. You could say The Searcher portrays this, but it adds an entirely new depth to it as well. Retired Chicago police officer Cal Hooper has moved to a small area in hopes of getting away from the job, only to be reminded you can‘t outrun everything. In his attempt to find the missing brother of Trey Reddy he sets out on a mission unlike any other.
Romance? Nope. Suspense? Eh maybe. Bat shit crazy? For sure!
This was a very short book, that I can say was a page turner, but in the end I was shaking my head at all of the different plot twists, and by how seriously messed up these characters are.
If you want a quick read, and enjoy some crime and daytime drama this is the book for you.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 out of 5 stars.
I‘m sorry, but what?!
My heart has been torn in two, and I‘m left unknowing. I went on a journey with multiple people, felt pain, happiness and loss in so many ways- only to be left with a million questions.
This book will have you looking at life in a new way, it explains life and death seamlessly, but it also has you questioning your every move.
I can see how some people may hate it, but for me this is a must read.
The Breakfast Club meets Riverdale meets Pretty Little Liars.
An unlikely group of high-schoolers end up in detention together, when tragedy strikes 4 of them are held under a microscope in a murder investigation. Unlikely friendships and relationships begin, and the “who dun it” is running at super speed.
The ending is predictable to say the least, but overall it was a well written book with a good storyline.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5 stars.
Revolting, charming, believable but unbelievable, hard. These words crossed my mind at some point or another while reading American Dirt. About halfway through I wanted to put it down and never pick it up again because of how sad and hurt it made me feel. By the end I was happy to have finished it. While it may be more unrealistic than most accounts for migrants, I think it shines a much needed light on this difficult subject.
“We read to know we are not alone” -C.S Lewis
Reading allows you to meet the most wonderful of creatures, both fictional and real. This time in particular I got to meet something real.
Currently reading American Dirt and while it‘s not based on a true story, I can‘t help but feel it‘s more real than any of us would like to admit.
Wow. Just wow. The underlying message of this book is amazing.
Linus is tasked with a job he doesn‘t think he is fit for, but during this job he learns more about himself and those surrounding him than he ever dreamed possible.
Talia is my favorite with her grumpiness but loving personality. Chauncey gives life to everybody around him. And Lucy shows the power of nature vs nurture.
If you haven‘t gotten your hands on this book, go get it now!

Set in 2018 a serial killer is new to the scene, diagnosed with a *killer* illness he is now taking on the duty of the Angel of Death. Chicago BJE officer Czarcik must go above authority to apprehend him. What could have been an easy end to it all turns into a mind game, left with somewhat of a predictable ending.
While the story was okay, I feel it could have been wrote a lot better.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 out of 5 stars.
