When Rena, a young mother whose daughter has serious medical problems, meets Claire on a flight to see yet another specialist for her daughter, Rena feels she might be able to get answers from the physic.

The Perfect Fraud is 290 pages long and took me 3 days to read.

I really enjoyed this book and am giving it a 4 out of 5! The struggles both women face are quite different but when this twisty story comes together it is darkly entertaining.

I had a really hard time reading this book. It could be that I’ve been in a reading funk but it felt super slow to me. Only the last few chapters I finally started to enjoy it. I do believe it’s worth the read but I have to give it a 2.5 out of 5 because I really struggled through it.

The Last Time I Saw You- Liv Constantine

I’ve really been slacking on my reviews so I sincerely apologize! I thought I’d hit you with this doozy to make up for it!

Kate’s mother was brutally murdered. She’s had terrible things happen in her life but this is by far the worst. The only slight ray of positivity in this tragedy is that it has brought Kate’s estranged best friend, Blaire, back into her life. After the funeral, Kate immediately receives threatening messages around her house from what appears to be the same person who killed her mother. With Blaire by her side trying to help her keep her sanity, can Kate thwart the frightening advances from her new stalker or will she be the next victim?

The Last Time I Saw You is 305 pages long and took me one day to read.

I’ve become quite a fan of Liv Constantine’s and this story has kept me hooked! I’m giving it a 4 out of 5! I didn’t expect the ending and it hit me like a ton of bricks! Highly recommend!

Stone Mothers-Erin Kelly

Stone Mothers is 353 pages long and took me 7 days to read.

I usually give books a 3 or higher but I absolutely detested the character Jesse to the point I almost stopped reading the book. Others might really enjoy the book, I was absolutely enthralled at the beginning but by the end, it turned the whole book sour for me so I’m giving it a 2 out of 5. Again, others might really love this story but I just couldn’t get over my dislike of Jesse.
