The first page, heck the first chapter of this book was super intense. WHAT A HOOK! I was somewhat let down after that first chapter. The Girl in the Headlines had so so so much potential. The blurb sounds like a true crime lover’s dream. But actually it was a true crime lover’s nightmare. There […]
This island alone boasts more ghost stories than all of Louisiana combined.
And I’m one of them.
In the Louisiana swamplands, ghost stories are as much a part of childhood as chasing fireflies and crawfishing. They never much scared me, though, nor the possibility of evil out to do me harm. Until the night I watched shadows come to life and butcher everything I loved.
With a stranger’s help, I managed to escape to an isolated place miles north, and, in time, became my own ghost story. A cautionary tale for the locals.
Nearly a decade passed, before I returned to my birthplace, in hopes of unearthing long-awaited answers. Instead, I found something I wasn’t looking for. Someone. A remedy for my loneliness.
Or so I thought.
Turns out, Thierry Bergeron is no elixir. He’s a deadly poison, cursed by the demons of his past, and feared by those who call him the elusive Rougarou of the bayou. A devious rogue, whose seductive whispers and rough hands haunt my dreams. The big bad wolf that defiles me without apology, or remorse.
I should resist him, but I can’t.
And when the shadows return to stake their claim on me, his darkness is the only safe place to hide.
A Stitch in Time was the perfect blend of romance and mystery–with a side of ghosts and time-travel. It’s as if Kelley Armstrong knew what I needed in my life, and she decided to put it all into one book. If you know me, then you know that ghosts and romance are two of my […]
Again, actual footage of me when Claire announced a 2nd book with Secret Societies (this is a throwback to my original review of the first book in the series, Half Truths <- click to read) : I could start this post off by raving about how amazing and wonderful and talented and pretty Claire Contreras […]
I’m going into this review feeling very conflicted about this book. Based on the synopsis, I was hooked. I The only thing I might love more than a good retelling is a revenge plot. Seems like a recipe for success. But this didn’t quite hit the mark for me. ALSO: SUPER TRIGGER WARNINGS ! the […]
The final book of the year for me in 2019 was The Wives by Tarryn Fisher. I really have a love/hate relationship with her books. Well, I guess I dont entirely HATE any of them, but some are just… meh, for me (Mud Vein is still my fave by her). So because of the back […]
“I’d been waiting for my Gypsy King.” This story is the perfect mixture of small town and motorcycle club romance that will get your heart pumping and melt it on the same page. In one book, Devney gives us murder and secrets alongside family and loyalty. What else could you want? I’ve been waiting for […]
Actual footage of me when Claire announced a book with Secret Societies: I know I go on and on about how amazing Claire Contreras is every time she release a new book, and I’m not going to stop now. I was SO FREAKING EXCITED to get my hands on this, and once I had it […]
