Jane Defosse doesn‘t write your typical teenage romance here. She writes a unique layered story filled with a magical realism aspect which is quite interesting. A wonderful debut book, I look forward to reading more by Jane Defosse in the future. If you‘re a fan of YA Romance, Magical Realism, Suspense books this is for you!

Each story is unique and different from Christmas elves to child stealing demons. There are 12 short stories in total. I love how Lantgen put together these short stories with great balance the stories transition between dark and light magical fantasy. Each time one story ends you‘ll be looking forward to reading the next one.

The Escape Room | Megan Goldin

A group of Wall Street coworkers participate in an escape room challenge as a team building exercise. This team has quite a few skeletons in their closets. The nepotism, greed, self interest, and layers of secrets that are revealed make this quite a page turning read.

I adored this book! The characters are wonderful. The small town setting a great place to get lost within the pages.
As Honey Howell gets settled back in town & into the family bourbon business the body count rises & the murder mystery plot thickens the suspect pool widens and things really get interesting.

A great read giving us a look at being single again in the city after age 50. Written from Candace‘s POV in short chapters each one is a short story about Candace & her friends Sassy, Kitty, Queenie, Tilda Tia,& Marilyn.
A perfect quick read that I finished in 1 day, it made me laugh, and even cry. On sale Aug 6th My full review:

This is a pulse racing, addictive, must read! Sager grabs a hold of you from the first paragraph where we meet Jules in the hospital panicked, scared, & leading us to what got her there. The chapters go back & forth from current hospital time to what led Jules to answer an ad for an apartment sitter in the exclusive Bartholomew.

Providence: A Novel | Caroline Kepnes
post image
Pickpick

You can tell from the book genre this is not going to like other books written by Kepnes. As a reader I appreciate it when authors dive into other genres, at times it has made me appreciate a genre I may not have picked up if not for a particular author.
At the heart of this story it‘s full of romance, literal heartache, sci-fi & suspense.
