Review: Inside The Whispers

Inside The Whispers Inside The Whispers by A.J. Waines
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You are a psychologist and the patients you are seeing not only suffer from nightmares about getting caught in an underground fire but, they all suffer the same nightmare and have committed suicide over it....only to find out that they were never involved in this event. Dr. Willerby is trying to figure out how this happened and now realizes her boyfriend Conrad is suffering from the same thing.

The story centers around who is involved in these mind altering experiments and how to reverse it before another suicide happens. An intense and suspenseful story all the way to the end.

Review: The Girl from the Sea

The Girl from the Sea The Girl from the Sea by Shalini Boland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is not the first book I have read by Boland and it wont be my last. This one starts off with Mia washing up on the beach. A dog walker finds her, she is taken to the hospital and remembers nothing, not even her name. So you have a story around finding out who exactly Mia is. But along comes a so-called boyfriend who brings her home and introduces her to her life before the accident.

But was it an accident? And if not, who would want to kill her. This book is a Kindle Unlimited and a great story because the more you read the more you wonder what exactly is going on. Mia finds she loves to row and meets up with Jack who isnt all he seems to be.

Then comes the twist I wasnt expecting and we find Mia and Jack arent really who you thought they were. Great book.

Review: Love You Gone

Love You Gone Love You Gone by Rona Halsall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twists and turns and just when you thought you knew what was happening....it changes again. I got this book through NetGalley for an honest review. The book is coming out on Nov 15, so put it on your list.
Mel comes home to find her husband and two children gone. They left a note "gone for a walk" but then they never return. The police are called and what seems like an innocent scene gone wrong, the more you read the more you find out what you thought was happening isnt so.

You start feeling sorry for the wife until you're presented with a whole different scenario. Who is the victim here? This is a book you cant put down because you are not really sure how it is going to end.

Review: The Perfect Lie

The Perfect Lie The Perfect Lie by Adam Croft
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say about THE PERFECT LIE? What can I say about Adam Croft? Not the first book of his that I read, and certainly will not be the last. I started this book thinking “He’s a great author, this should be good” Well, it wasn’t good – it was great! The fact that I read it in two days shows that I could not put it down, I ignored a lot of housework, read into the night, and dragged my Kindle with me wherever I went so I can get a chance to continue this story.
Amy Walker has a husband and two young sons and everything is great. Until she is arrested one afternoon for killing her father in law.

But she didnt do it. How could she? She was home all morning (alone) while hubby and the boys were at football. And the following pages show how the odds are stacked up against her…until she is in jail, no bail and looking at weeks ahead of her until her trial.

At first I didn’t think the court appointed lawyer was really a help. But then things got interesting. You see the book flashes back 18 years to her friendship with Gregg and her involvement with her boyfriend, Lewis. To that day when Hannah Shaw was killed by Lewis…who spent 18 years in jail for a crime he did not commit.

And that’s all I’m saying because the rest will surprise you because there is such a thing as THE PERFECT LIE.

Review: WHATEVER Happened to Alec

WHATEVER Happened to Alec WHATEVER Happened to Alec by Howard Wallman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

WHATEVER happened to Alec? Yes, I would love to know that. While reading this book (an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review) I was torn between 3 stars and 4 stars. In honesty, my 5 star books are usually thrillers/suspense books I finish in 2-3 days.

My first thoughts on this book was it kept bouncing back and forth between characters. Just as I got into one character, the next paragraph started with another. On the upside the characters themselves were very colorful. There was Maggie and Barry who were parents to Alec (if I was Alec I would have run away from home a long time ago), and the story goes from cheating, to romance, to bullying and mental illness.

The book kept me going because I did want to find out what happened to Alec although most of the book was around the other characters. But three quarters of the way in, things were looking better and I needed to get to the ending (my 4 star rating was coming up)….but I am the kind of person who needs an ending, no matter the outcome…and I was a bit disappointed in this one….but the story itself was not only interesting, but intriguing on how each character worked things out in the madness that pursued.

I did love the story between Stacy and Fran and how they stand up for what they believe. Their role in helping Alec and even Katy (Victoria’s daughter). I definitely would recommend this book for the amazing subject matter.

Love and Me

One thing about my products....if there is a new one, I will buy it, try it and rave about it.  Or in all honesty I will tell you my opinions on it as to whether it works on me (maybe on you it will) or if it is oily or greasy to use...how much to use and this will be my honest opinion.

And so with that I must rave about something new that has recently come out from Avon.  I love mascara and of course have my favorite.  I have tried a lot of different brands, ended up using only Avon but have tried every mascara they ever put out.  My favorite - Wide Awake -

So when Avon came out with yet another mascara - LOVE - I bought it, tried it and wow, love it.  But along with LOVE they coupled it with Anew Unlimited Lashes - and the older I get the more the lashes are just not there.  And if I rub my eyes, well I found them falling out a bit too much.

So for the past 5 weeks I have been using Unlimited Lashes along with LOVE mascara..and have never in all my life have been happier.  My lashes have grown in and now look longer and healthier than ever.

Unlimited lashes get brushed on at night on the upper lid just above the lashes - like eyeliner.
Then in the morning after it has done its job - brush on LOVE mascara....give it a few weeks and you will see the difference.

Review: Saving Meghan

Saving Meghan Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was given this ARC through NetGalley. I have never read anything by D.J.Palmer and it sounded good. At first I wasnt thrilled because there were many incidences in a hospital, talking about medical procedures but the more I read the more I needed to know what happens.

The story is told around Meghan who is ill, or maybe not, because her mom Becky thinks she is, but her medical tests show otherwise. Along comes Dr. Fisher who thinks she has Mito - a disease his son died from. And then there are others who think the mom has Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker, typically the mother, seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child.

And so this is what kept me reading, to find out just what was wrong here...and the story gets more interesting the further I read. This book will not be out until April 2019, but it should go on your TBR list, because the ending is not at all what I was expecting!

Review: In Her Shadow

In Her Shadow In Her Shadow by Mark Edwards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mark Edwards has written a whole slew of books and this is the 5th one of his that I have read. I received it as an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. This book will not be out until next week. I must admit firsthand that I wasnt sure about it because there was some reference to psychic happenings in the book, but the more I read (which is why you should give a book more than a few pages) the more I wanted to turn the page to see just what was happening.

Jessica lost her sister, Izzy, to what the police termed as an accident. But she wasnt so sure it was, and five years after her death Jessica's own daughter (who wasnt yet born when Izzy died) is now coming up statements that Izzy is talking to her about that time.

Wanting to get to the bottom of this Jessica goes ahead and tries to find out who "killed" her sister, only to be pulled into more scenarios surrounding her sister's death that she never knew. I ended up finding myself wanting to finish this book to see if this was a murder, or accident and just how psychic Jessica's daughter was.....very happy I did - didnt expect the ending....looking forward to more books by Edwards.

Review: The Millionaire's Wife

The Millionaire's Wife The Millionaire's Wife by Shalini Boland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secrets...just when you think they wont pop up, you get an email about a woman killed and you know who did it. Anna's past has remained there now that she is married to a wealthy man whom she loves and adores. But she hasnt told Will anything about her past.

But now she will have to in order to save him; but things get scary before she can do that, threatening her and her family. She must stop her ex-lover before it is too late. This book kept me wanting more and not wanting to put it down - this author has written some great books and I enjoy her thrillers. Even when I thought that was all there was to the story, she managed to add a few more thrills in the end.

Review: The Best Friend

The Best Friend The Best Friend by Shalini Boland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love books that start off with a bang. It keeps you interested at the beginning and wanting more. And so this book by Boland (not the first time I read her, or the last) started off with Louisa, her husband and son Joe, living a great life now that Joe is in a good school. They are not rich, but comfortable and then along comes Darcy, Tyler's mom, (Tyler is in the same class as Joe). They become friends, very quickly, maybe too quickly and then things go south.

Darcy and her rich friends welcome Louisa into their group but then things start to get weird and while everyone thinks Louisa is imagining and overreacting to things, we soon find out that their is a big, dark secret Darcy is harboring....soon to play havoc with Louisa's life.

A real page turner because you never know who your friends are....Love Boland's writing, am now reading another book by her, The Millionaire's Wife...
