Book Review: Lies She Told by Cate Holahan

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review The faithful often find themselves blindsided. They don’t suspect anything because they can’t imagine doing something so awful themselves.

Book Review: Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse

Before We Met has been advertised as “the next Gone Girl”. Frankly, I hate it when books are compared to other books because no two can be alike. The characters, the plot line, the writing, the general feel. All of it is different in each book. So, when I saw that it was “the next…
