Haiku Reviews...


Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware


Hal Westaway can
con her way to an inheritance--
if she dares!


Mystery .... 368 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(I thought this one was better than The Woman in Cabin 10.)






Teeth of the Sea by Tim Waggoner


Ancient cryptids have
 risen from the depths, driven 
to mate, spawn .... and feed!


"Deep sea thriller" .... 173 pages .... 2.5/5 stars.
(This one's a real chomp fest!)





Secrets of a Spinster by Rebecca Connolly


Spinster? Ha! Mary is
determined to enjoy her London 
Season like never before.


Regency romance .... 281 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(Humorous and fun.)





Ghost Mine by Hunter Shea


This abandoned mine
holds more than gold or ghosts. Its
terror runs much deeper!


Horror/Western .... 290 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(Thanks for the book, Barb! It was one wild ride. Check out Barb's review if you want to know more.)




Happy Reading!

  9. The premise of Ruth Ware's books always grab me but never quite live up to my expectations. But I'll probably keep reading them. They are perfect vacation/beach/plane trip reads.

    1. The first Ruth Ware book I read fell a little flat for me, too. But I thought this one was better. Which gives me hope for her future books. :D

  13. I'll request the audio of Ruth Ware's book seeing you enjoyed it more than The Woman in Cabin 10, that was at best a 3 star read for me, so I didn't add Mrs. Westaway. Love the format of reviews here. :)

  15. I was really irritated by Woman in Cabin 10. But yours is not the only positive review I hear about Mrs. Westaway, maybe it will be a good read))))

    1. I didn't love The Woman in Cabin 10; in fact, I thought the plot was pretty obvious and predictable. But I liked The Death of Mrs. Westaway a lot more. It's definitely a better read.
