When Painted With Deceit by Shana Frost is a heart-pumping tale of false hope, deceit, and murder mixed with our usual dose of cozy romance set in a small town.

I‘ve loved every entry in this series, but this one is my favorite so far.

Reality Squall by Jason Krawczyk is a psychological tale of second chances that is filled with oddities, grief, and love.

If there could only be one book that I recommend to all my horror-reading friends this year, this is it.

The Vast by Matt Wildasin delves into the somber depths of a man‘s inner turmoil. As he grapples with the burdens that bind him, the pressing question remains: Can he find solace and heal before the darkness consumes him entirely?
