Book Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Book Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Fire Touched is the 9th book in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson Series. I have been a long time reader of this series and Mercy is a character that always seems to come alive.

Verity was a great strong female lead, but I felt the focus on her… Read more »

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Disclaimer:  Vacant by Alex Hughes is the first book I have read in the Mindspace Investigation Series.  **Unintentional spoilers may be contained in this review. Vacant by Alex Hughes might have settled better with me, if I would have not listened to it.  However, that totally could go the other way.  Why am I not sure?  It is simple.  This is one of those “on the line” books for me.  It borders being good and not-so good.  When this happens,  I… Read more »
