Lights on the Sea by Miquel Reina ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Amak to Harold..."I can't waste the life I've been given by standing still and lamenting the past until my days run out. I must get up and fight; I must keep providing for my family. I must keep moving forward, not just for myself, but also for my daughter and for all those who are no longer with us. Because in the end, that's why we're here, right? The only reason we are given life is to live it."

The Ash Family by Molly Dektar ~ a Review

by MK French

Berie had felt lost and out of place in her own life, so when she met Bay on the way to attend college for a future she didn't even want, it was easy to follow him. She joined the collective family that he was part of and became Harmony. There were no possessions, no relationships, no children, no sense of self separate from that of the Ash Family, which was led by Dice. Dice was charismatic and held sway over them all.

Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Beautiful Bad is a psychological thriller that will keep you turning pages until the surprising end. Every time I thought that I had something figured out, I would find out in a few pages that I was totally wrong so the ending was a huge surprise but one that made total sense based on the clues that were scattered throughout. The book starts out with a murder - a bloody and gruesome murder and a 911 call to the police - but we don't learn who was murdered until much later in the book and we don't know WHY they were murdered until the very end.

The Loch Ness Papers by Paige Shelton ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I'm always looking for new to me cozy mysteries so when I saw The Lock Ness Papers at Netgalley and learned it was part of the Sottish Bookshop Mystery series, I had to request it. It is book 4 in the series, and I haven't read the previous books, but I still really enjoyed it.
