    Multiple narratives are nothing new but in the world of thriller reads have become the norm in recent years. This can lead to either scatterbrain storylines that confound and confuse or on rare occasions can make for gripping reads as you are presented with an unreliable narrator and t...

    4.5 stars rounded up! Like I said, the skin remembers, the fingertips remember. The gritty bite of the brick. The crack of the bone. The memory is like something physical, a scab I can worry, something I can make bleed again. Kate, aka Evie, is a seventeen year old girl and she...

    In CALL ME EVIE, we're instantly plunged into a realm of domestic suspense. You read page One, and you go, 'Oh God, I can't let go of this book. I need to know what's going on!' It pulls you in immediately. But you can progressively begin to acknowledge that you're on the brink of seei...

    Held my interest for the first half of the book, and then I began preparing myself for a lackluster ending. But thankfully, I was way off base as things really heated up in the final chapters of the book. Not a perfect read, but one I definitely recommend reading if you get the chance....
