The Maid

The only thing really carrying this story was Molly herself, but that was plenty for me, as I really liked her. For other people, it may not be enough, though. This is not a deep-thinking book. There's no pulse-pounding thrills, nothing too complex, just plain easy reading with a feel-good ending.

2022 Spring Break Staycation Part One

This year, we did a couple of things differently: we went with friends, and we ventured the rugged 6-mile North Loop of the Whispering Pine Trail, complete with THREE creek crossings. I will admit that it was a bit chillier than we were expecting this time of year, and the wind was gusty, but it was still fun.

I See You

I have been on a real thriller kick lately, but some of the ones I have read have left me anything but thrilled. The premise of this one sounded super creepy, and wasn't what I was expecting at all!

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead

While I enjoyed this book, it didn't quite have the same spark as the previous book in the series. While the first book was light and fun, this one was definitely more serious. Still, I really enjoyed hanging out with Finn and Vero again and seeing what they are getting themselves into.

The Paris Apartment

There was a dark, Hitchcockian feel to the setting that lent to the evilness of the apartment building, and for about the first third of the book, I was excited to see how this unfolded. However, on the whole, this book was a bit underwhelming.

The Mystery of Mrs. Christie

The real life mystery of what really happened during the 11 days that Agatha Christie went missing remains unsolved, the truth dying with Agatha and perhaps her ex-husband, Archie. Still, the mystery has provided much speculation and spawned entertaining tellings of what might have happened, as in this novel.
