The Last Night Out by Catherine O’Connell @OConnellauthor @blackthornbks #bookreview #NetGalley #friendship #murder #mystery

I wonder how many outcomes have hinged on such cringe-worthy moments: how many lives have been indelibly changed as a result of one misstep? Whether by choice or by deflection, the consequences of the alternate path can be dire. Set in Chicago in the late '80s, Ms. O'Connell's novel about murder, secrets, betrayals, and friendship … Continue reading The Last Night Out by Catherine O’Connell @OConnellauthor @blackthornbks #bookreview #NetGalley #friendship #murder #mystery

The Night Before

Me, a twenty-eight-year-old who needs a shrink to tell her how to behave. I didn't tell him about my childhood here, running wild in the woods behind our house with the neighborhood kids.

#BookReview: A Knight in Cowboy Boots (McKnight, #1) by Suzie Quint #SuzieQwriter

Maddie had no idea how many laws she'd broken in the last week. They all paled next to kidnapping. Since she'd been advised not to leave the state, she was pretty sure having temporary custody wouldn't get her anywhere in court. Not that it mattered. She'd never get to court. She'd die before she gave … Continue reading #BookReview: A Knight in Cowboy Boots (McKnight, #1) by Suzie Quint #SuzieQwriter
