After Lucy and her husband Owen get a little drunk at a dinner with friends, they learn that their friends have opened their marriage. They claim that opening their marriage reignited the passion they had for each other that had long been lost, and that they were happier than ever. Lucy balks at the idea, but after thinking on it for a while, decides to give it a try in hopes that she’ll stop feeling so invisible. She and Owen set ground rules, and add a end date to the experiment – 6 months, no questions asked, and no falling in love. When Lucy realizes she’s broken one of these rules, she has to decide if she wants to stay in her marriage or if this new romance is more intriguing.

I’m thrilled to be the next spot on the Watching the Bodies North American blog tour! Watching the Bodies is the first book in Graham Smith’s new Jake Boulder series.

After a murder happens in a small town outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, the police are unprepared to handle the case. Jake Boulder steps in with friend Alfonse, who also happens to be a private investigator, to help the police with the case. As the killer’s pattern becomes clear, the investigative team realizes they have to rush before more bodies accumulate. It’s not long before word gets out that Boulder happens to be the most helpful person on the case, which makes him a target for our serial killer. In a thrilling game of cat and mouse, it’s clear only one will make it out alive – will it be Boulder, or The Watcher?

The Breakdown by B.A. Paris

Screen Shot 2017-04-28 at 12.55.31 PM

On her way home from a night out, Cass decides to take a shortcut home down a dark wooded road, even after her husband warned her to avoid that route due to the severe storm that was hitting them. While she’s driving, Cass sees a car stopped on the side of the road, and pulls over to see if the driver needs help. Reluctant to get out of the car in the middle of the storm, Cass waits to see if the driver will alert her that they need help. When no such sign comes, sheย continues her drive home.

The next morning, she hears that a woman was murdered on the same road she took home…it was the woman in the car she saw. Partly wracked with guilt that she didn’t get out of her car, and partly terrified that the killer is still on the loose, Cass winds upย on a downward spiral and as she seems to be forgetting more and more details of her life, she questions whether she can even trust herself, or if she’s starting to suffer from dementia the same way her mother did.

Regardless of whether or not she’s forgetting things, she knows she’s been getting daily phone calls each day where the caller says nothing, and she can’t shake the feeling that she’s being watched…

Books everyone loved that I…didn’t #unpopularopinion

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 12.13.31 PM

The other day I completed a book tag, and one of the questions asked me to name a book that everyone loved that I didn’t. I started thinking about it and realized that I actually could think of a few that I didn’t love the way it seems everyone else does, so I decided to write a post about it and share some of my unpopular book opinions. Please don’t shun me!! I also want to be clear that I have zero issue with anyone who did like any of these books – clearly I’m in the minority here because they are all highly rated!
