Vanishing Falls by Poppy Gee

Vanishing Falls

Vanishing Falls is one of my few DNF’s of the year, and it’s extremely unusual for me to DNF a mystery at all (I need to know what happens!).

Lightning Reviews: Halloween Reads & a Historical Mystery

This edition of Lightning Reviews has two books you may want to pick up for the spooky season. One is definitely horror that is eerie and on the adult side.

Welcome back to Lightning Reviews! This is where we group reviews that are on the shorter side, typically 500 words or less. This time, we have two sports romances that feature m/m and f/f pairings, and feature winter sports in particular. We also have a geeky contemporary romance. Enjoy!

Lightning Reviews: Earls & Murder

For this batch of Lightning Reviews, we have a historical romance, a mystery, and a historical mystery! One is a continuation of a series that Sarah loves, one is a start to a brand new series, and the third is a standalone. I also love it when you all play “guess the reviewer” as you read them!

Lightning Reviews: A High and a Low

We only have two books for this installment of LIGHTNING REVIEWS, but that’s okay! I think you’ll still find a book here to add to your TBR pile. Both books are wildly different and received opposite grades.

Lightning Reviews: A Selection of Romantic Sugenres

The Lightning Reviews today are all romances! I feel like it’s been a while since that happened. However, they are all different when it comes to subgenre: historical romance, contemporary romance, and romantic suspense. Also on the bright side, they’re all reviewed pretty favorably in case you need more suggestions on what to read!
