Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp was a fun paranormal murder mystery with a side dish of romance. The tale offered up plenty of paranormal woo-woo from ghost advisers to a psychic team that together could walk inside the mind of the killer and his victims. Fast paced with a snarky protagonist and drop dead gorgeous television psychic I quickly consumed Through His Eyes.

Caffeinated Confession -Do we demand more from our books than reality?

I was watching the movie International with my husband on a rainy, lazy Sunday afternoon. Our hero was interrogating a white collar criminal and told him, “You will never get away with this, people won’t believe your lies.” The man smirked and said, “The difference between life and fiction, is that fiction has to make sense.” This immediately made me ponder. Do we as readers demand more from our fictional stories then real life?

There is nothing like a good thriller to get your heart racing as the world slips away, and you become completely absorbed in the characters and their fates. Phantom Instinct by Meg Gardiner was one heck of a heart-stopping thriller with fleshed out characters and a climatic ending that had me holding my breath.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I was excited to read Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige and chose to listen to the audio version. The tale introduces us to Amy Gumm from Kansas who finds herself in Oz. Only it is not the place she remembers from the movie she and her mother use to watch. In fact, something is terribly wrong. Paige twists Oz into a dark place filled with nightmares, and I found myself quickly immersed in this world.

The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness has been an absolute favorite. Matthew and Diana’s love affair and quest to find Ashmole 782 has taken us all over the globe from present day and to the past. It shares a passionate romance to rock the ages and a quest filled with danger, magic and lose. I have laughed, swooned, pounded my fists and wept. As I embarked on my journey with The Book of Life, I did so hesitantly and hoped Harkness would protect my heart. I needed have worried my final visit with the Clairmont’s, and Diana Bishop was everything I hoped for and more.
