Bones Dont Lie-Melinda Leigh (Morgan Dane Series #3) #Book Review


Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he’s lived under the weight of that disappearance—until his father’s car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake. It should be a time for closure, except for the skeleton found in the trunk. A missing person case gone cold has become one of murder, and Lance and attorney Morgan Dane must face the deadly past that’s risen to the surface.

For Lance, the investigation yields troubling questions about a man he thought he knew. But memories can play dirty tricks. For Morgan, uncovering each new lie comes with a disquieting fear that someone is out there watching, because someone is killing every witness tied to this decades-old crime. Morgan and Lance follow in the shadows of a relentless killer and walk right into the cross fire.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I have been enjoying the series. Morgan Dane has me up until late at night I refuse to put it down wanting to learn more. I love the suspense, the anticipation the anxiety the thrill of wanting to know what will happen next. If you’ve read this far you’d have known that Lance father was missing since Book 1. In this thought provoking chapter they were tasked with finding out what happened on the night of his disappearance now that evidence turned up showing a murder had took place. Lance grovelled with the thought of considering his Dad was a murderer and who left him only at 10 years old with his mother battling depression and other mental issues.

Lance, Morgan along with Sharp carried readers on a roller coaster ride trying to solve this mystery. Morgan knew she was close to the discovery she was in danger. You’ll be surprised to see what was eventually discovered on that night. I was shocked to find out that someone so close to the case had done the deed.

I also loved the scenes with Sophie, she’s such a sweetheart. Now fully warned up to Lance. Morgan and Lance are getting closer and I want to see if things will get more serious with them now that the girls have accepted Lance and all.

Melinda surely knows how to keep us users in suspense.

I gave the rating of 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Not A Book Review

If you read the title you’d have probably realized that I am not writing about a Book I’ve read and or want to read. I just thought I’d write something.

I woke up just now feeling restless, and unable to go back to sleep. The night air is blowing through my window and I can hear the sounds of crickets and frogs probably displaced by the showers of rain we had this afternoon. The fan in my room is swaying left to right because the AC unit is down and I would much rather have the fan than burn up.

It could be all the noise around me that’s preventing me from going back to sleep or the thoughts of uncertainty in my head. I’m scheduled to show up for work tomorrow, and there are tons of work left for me to do before I get to the office.

Have you ever been troubled with your thoughts that it kept you wondering what or how you’d solve the myriad of things going through it all at once? I just read an article what would you be doing with your life if money wasn’t an issue? The truth I would be traveling the world, all I would need is my tablet and my phone because that’s where it works. I’d be my own “Olivia Pope”. Yes I know that we have a pandemic dealing with so traveling may not be anywhere on my radar but that’s what I would be doing and or want to do.

I feel a little better I guess this writing things down helps. If you’ve read this far, you’re a gem. I hope that you’re having a peaceful night and not as restless as I am. I’m going back to reading my book until I fall asleep.

Until Next Time….


The Last Goodbye – Melinda Leigh (Book #2 Morgan Dane Series) #BookReview


Source: Good Reads

Young mother Chelsea Clark leaves the house for a girls’ night out…and vanishes. Her family knows she would never voluntarily leave her two small children. Her desperate husband—also the prime suspect—hires Morgan to find his wife and prove his innocence.

As a single mother, Morgan sympathizes with Chelsea’s family and is determined to find her. She teams up with private investigator Lance Kruger. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier their investigation gets. When Morgan is stalked by a violent predator, everything—and everyone—she holds dear is in grave danger.

Now, Morgan must track down a deranged criminal to protect her own family…but she won’t need to leave home to find him. She’s his next target.

My Thoughts:

Melinda Leigh takes us on another roller coaster ride into this suspense series where a young mother Chelsea Clarke goes missing and the husband Tim Clarke desperate to find her , hires Sharps PI Firm. Morgan and Lance have formed the dynamic duo after solving the major case in Book 1 which was all over the news.

Morgan and Lance used all their tactic to solve the case while occasionally stepping on the Sheriff’s toes. Lance the with the skills he learnt while on the force and Morgan a former prosecutor was very intuitive. The plot took me by surprise when they thought the case was over they had found Chelsea but Morgan still knew that something was an amiss the killer was now hunting her. They came up with a plan which was pretty dangerous but managed not only to solve the kidnapping of the young mother but other missing persons from the town. I loved how the writer maintained the suspense and built on the budding romance that was developing between Lance and Morgan who finally shared their feelings for ea other. I look forward to seeing where their relationship is going and for them solving more mysteries in their little hometown.

Say You’re Sorry – Melinda Leigh( Book#1 Morgan Dane Series) (#BookReview)


After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she’s finally found peace and a promising career opportunity—until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.

Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can’t believe he’s guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

My Thoughts:

This book was nothing short of amazing. I was thoroughly engulfed in ever page. I wanted more; I got more. I was there with the characters I felt their emotions as they solved the mysteries in the town. The characters Morgan and Lance we’re my favorites honorable mention was her daughter, 3 yr old Sophie.

Morgan had lost her husband, father of her three kids. She was now living back home with her grandfather in Scarlett Falls. She restled with the idea that she was still grieving her husband and wanting to go on with her life being a good mom to her kids. She was a good prosecutor and felt after two years it was time to pick up the pieces.

Things took a turn when her next-door neighbor was accused of murdering her babysitter – Tessa. Morgan was not convinced that he could have done something like that seeing that Nick sometimes babysat her daughters and played chess with her grandfather. Nick father strapped for cash didn’t know what he was going to do he knew his son was innocent. Morgan decided to represent Nick, yea a prosecutor now a defense attorney.

She reaches out to her old friend Lance to try and solve the mystery that also caused a divide in the community. Her neighbors felt she was a traitor representing a would be rapist and murder. They did such a good job not just solving that crime but all the other town secrets. They made a dynamic duo, I loved their storyline and the budding romance that eventually developed. I won’t say much but I was swooning away at #MORLAN 😊. I don’t like romance novels but the little I got I appreciated. It’s a good read and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

I give it 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ unto the next in the series.

Follow You Home- Mark Edwards #BookReview

Laura and Daniel planned a vacation around Europe just before settling down. They meet an interesting couple along the way with whom they shared experiences. Things happened on their vacation that caused them to return home immediately; both promising each other not to repeat what happened .

Their relationship eventually suffered and things started occurring that further pushed them apart. Daniel thinks the only way to deal with all the spooky things that are happening around them is to reveal all. All is fair in this riveting story of Love, Secrets ,Death, Friendship, Betrayal and new beginnings in this psychological thriller.

Things started out slowly in the beginning but got interesting as the story developed you won’t want to put it down. I got angry, scared , felt shock as I didn’t know what was going to happen next. The end left me calling Laura a b*tch I just can’t believe how all that escalated. I never saw it coming.

Overall I am giving this book 5 stars

A Killers Mind #BookReview

From the moment I started reading this book 📖 on my Kindle I just couldn’t put it down. It took me two days to complete but nonetheless here are my thoughts

A killers Mind -Mike Omer


A chilling thriller of serial murder and dark secrets that will leave you wondering, is the past really in the past?

Three Chicago women have been found strangled, embalmed, and posed as if still alive. Doubting the findings of the local PD’s profiler, The FBI calls on forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley to investigate.

Zoe quickly gets off on the wrong foot with her new partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray. Zoe’s a hunter, intense and focused; Tatum’s a smug maverick with little respect for the rules. Together, they must descend into a serial killer’s psyche and untangle his twisted fantasies, or more women will die. But when the contents of three inconspicuous envelopes reveal a chilling connection to gruesome murders from Zoe’s childhood, suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted.

My Thoughts:

I found it fascinating that Zoe at a tender age was so intelligent and focused on solving a mystery that her town police took sometime to solve. The relationship between her sister was adorable one that any sister would appreciate; one of love and admiration. Zoe was her sisters hero. It was no shocker that Zoe became the profession she boldly and confidently manages. She is thorough and very methodical in how she looks at any case file while trying to solve her cases. The work relationship between herself and her colleague Tatum started off rocky but quickly grew to that of admiration and trust. I hope there’s a budding romance there. The relationship between Tatum and his Grandfather was a bit over the top unbelievable if you may, I got in a few laughs though lol. Marvin is a character.

The ending wow ❕ I really never thought that would happen I am definitely going to grab the next copy to see what happens next. It has really peaked my interest even more.

I’d give this book 7/10
