Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Howard
I love psychological thrillers and I found the thought of someone disappearing on a cruise ship intriguing. I had assumed that this would be simple "whodunit" but it turned out to be way more. It is full of twists and turns and I had a hard time putting the...

The Ill-Kept Oath (The Druineach Legacy) by C.C. Aune
I was entranced by this book from the very beginning. I have always been fascinated by the Regency era and am a huge Jane Austen fan. I have to say that C.C. Aune definitely nailed this time period very accurately.  Prudence Fairfeather and Lady Josephine W...
