Nine Elms by Robert Bryndza – Book Review

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and really enjoyed it. the story started off with a bang and I was immediately captivated by the story. The character were enjoyable and also relatable. I like that the main character, Kate Marshall, is an independent woman with a career but also has her flaws and working to get those straight. It definitely made her character likable and relatable. This is the first book in this new series and I’m excited about other books being developed in this series. This book is also free with Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Synopsis:

Kate Marshall was a promising young police detective when she caught the notorious Nine Elms serial killer. But her greatest victory suddenly turned into a nightmare. Traumatized, betrayed, and publicly vilified for the shocking circumstances surrounding the cannibal murder case, Kate could only watch as her career ended in scandal. Fifteen years after those catastrophic events, Kate is still haunted by the unquiet ghosts of her troubled past. Now a lecturer at a small coastal English university, she finally has a chance to face them. A copycat killer has taken up the Nine Elms mantle, continuing the ghastly work of his idol. Enlisting her brilliant research assistant, Tristan Harper, Kate draws on her prodigious and long-neglected skills as an investigator to catch a new monster. Success promises redemption, but there’s much more on the line: Kate was the original killer’s intended fifth victim…and his successor means to finish the job.

Yep, I’m that person. Wherever I go, my Kindle follows.

Grant County Series by Karin Slaughter- Book Review

Karin Slaughter does it again. I have binge read this series this month and I have loved this series. My favorite character would definitely have to be Dr. Linton. There is something empowering about a strong, smart female lead. If you are a Slaughter fan and you haven’t read this series by her than I definitely encourage you too get these books. I love following all the characters and getting tangled up in the story and thrills along the way. Karin Slaughter makes it incredibly hard to put her books down. I have stayed up way too late so many nights this month with this series and I absolutely don’t regret it. 😁 As a whole, I give this series ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I am on the third book of her Will Trent series and so far The Grant County series is my favorite. I know Dr. Linton crosses over into the Will Trent books so it will be interesting to see how that unfolds.

Pretty Girls Dancing by Kylie Brant- Book Review

I’m loving all the thrillers I’ve been reading this month and this one is no different. I found this jewel on Kindle Unlimited and I’m so glad I did. I loved the well-molded characters and the compelling story that continuously had me guessing the whole time. There was a lot details to the story that really connected all the pieces of the story together. From the very beginning this book starts off with a twist and bring all the twist together at the end, which was great. This book is definitely worth reading and you won’t be able to put it down plus it’s free with Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. While I really enjoyed this book it’s hard to rate when I have read so many thrillers this month that have been amazing.

Synopsis:

Years ago, in the town of Saxon Falls, young Kelsey Willard disappeared and was presumed dead. The tragedy left her family with a fractured life—a mother out to numb the pain, a father losing a battle with his own private demons, and a sister desperate for closure. But now another teenage girl has gone missing. It’s ripping open old wounds for the Willards, dragging them back into a painful past, and leaving them unprepared for where it will take them next.
Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Mark Foster has stumbled on uncanny parallels in the lives of the two missing girls that could unlock clues to a serial killer’s identity. That means breaking down the walls of the Willards’ long-guarded secrets and getting to a truth that is darker than he bargained for. Now, to rescue one missing girl, he must first solve the riddles that disappeared with another: Kelsey Willard herself. Dead or alive, she is his last hope.

My Happy Place

I love second hand book shops and always find at least a hand full of books for less than $10. We have a 2nd and Charles in the city where I live and I visit this place at least twice a month. It’s definitely one of my happy places.

Saturday Night Vibes

Trying some new wine that was recommended by a fellow bookstagrammer and it fits perfectly in with my October thriller books I’ve been reading. Enjoying the wine as well as the book.
