Beach Wedding by Michael Ledwidge is perhaps a bit of a paradoxical title, as who would ever picture something horrible happening at a beach wedding? And yet this read is very much a suspenseful thriller book, making it perfect for those that love the genre. Continue reading

Review: The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James

While this novel is based on a real person (Agatha Christie), it is a work of fiction. Meaning that Nina de Gramont does not promise that this novel is true. Continue reading
