Lie to Me by J.T. Ellison

There were times when I couldn’t stand this book, and there were other moments when I really enjoyed the story. My biggest problem was with the main character, Ethan. His responses and actions went beyond the point of simple annoyance. He wasn’t believable, and his actions/speech took away from the mystery, which actually ended up being pretty good. I gave it 3 stars, yet I somehow still recommend it, but I’ll warn you to be prepared to become agitated.

The Ex by Alafair Burke

This was a surprisingly good read. I particularly enjoyed Olivia’s character, her flaws, and her passion for her job. The mystery part of the book kept me guessing while the relationship aspects were also relatable. I will admit that I sort of saw the ending coming, but I didn’t see it exactly the way that Burke wrote it. I gave it 4.5 stars and definitely recommend this one.

Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight

I found this book to be entertaining and surprising. I enjoyed how the different perspectives from the main characters intertwined, but it was a bit confusing at times. Still, I did not see the ending coming, and that is always a nice treat. This is a wonderful blend of suspense, mystery, and psychological suspense. I gave it 4 stars and definitely recommend it.

The Safest Lies by Megan Miranda

This was an interesting book with nice twists and turns. While parts were somewhat unbelievable, I still enjoyed the journey. Any book that can keep me guessing is one that I remember. It’s a mix between a young adult book and a mystery. If you like that blend of young love, hidden pasts, and a crime, then you’ll enjoy this one.

Almost Missed You by Jessica Strawser

This was different from the books I normally read, but I really enjoyed it. The mixture of romance and mystery played out perfectly. I found myself always wanting to know what would happen next, and I was usually surprised. I gave it 4.5 stars and definitely recommend it. If you enjoy twists and turns, you’ll like this one.

A God in the Shed by J-F Dubeau

This book started out with such promise, but it failed to fulfill that promise. It’s difficult to even place it into a category as it hold elements of magical realism, adventure, supernatural, and a mystery. The more I read, the more I wanted the book to be finished. I gave it three stars because there were positives to it, but not enough to make me want to know what was going to happen. In the end, I believed very little, and was incredibly disappointed.
