Haiku Reviews...


Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison 


The Goode School--an elite
boarding school for girls--and for
secrets, lies and murder.


Psychological thriller .... 458 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(Loved every crazy twist and turn. Want to know more? Check out Ethan's review; it's what made me want to read this one.)



The Sight (Devil's Isle #2) by Chloe Neill


A dangerous cult  targets
those with magic in Devil's Isle;
Claire and Liam fight back.


Urban fantasy .... 330 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(Even better than The Veil, the first book in this series.)




The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie


Stolen diamonds. Murder.
An amateur sleuth named Anne.
One fun adventure.


Mystery .... 288 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(This standalone mystery does not disappoint.)




Well Met by Jen DeLuca


A wench, a pirate, and 
a Renaissance Faire. But will
their summer romance last?


Contemporary romance .... 316 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(So cute and fun. I loved this one!)



Happy Reading!

  7. Ethan's review made me want to read Good Girls Lie, too. I'm not sure if I remembered to add it on my library holds though. I'll have to check. Well Met was fun, right? Nice to hear The Sight didn't disappoint since I have book one right now. You can't go wrong with Agatha Christie! It's been a while but I've read most several times. Love your Haiku reviews! :)

  16. Oh, yay, more Haiku Reviews! I always love these.

    Well Met sounds delightful. I just bought the first book in the series. And I want to go back and reread The Man in the Brown Suit, because apparently I have completely forgotten the plot.

    1. It's easy to forget the plots of Christie's mysteries. Happens to me all the time. :)
