Review: One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline
I'm on the fence with a 3 and 4 star rating for Lisa Scottoline's  One Perfect Lie  but more on that later. Scottoline is a favorite of mine so I was anxious to get this read and it doesn't disappoint with the first few chapters locking down the reader.  We...

Review: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
I know it's wrong what I'm going to say but I don't care. I've come to the point that I am just happy to have made it through. Similarly to the brave slaves that are introduced in  The Underground Railroad , my journey through this novel was treacherous, ex...

Review: Wives, Fiancees, and Side-Chicks of Hotlanta by Sheree Whitfield
I am proud to admit I am a "Real Housewives of..." whatever city junky. I have never been one to sheepishly say I love my Housewives. Of course I have my favorite from each franchise such as Lisa Vanderpump from Beverly Hills, Caroline Manzo from New Jersey...
