The Harbor by Katrine Engberg

 I won a copy of the ARC in a Goodreads Giveaway. Thank you to GoodReads and Gallery/Scout Press for a copy of the ARC. First off I didn't realize until I just set up this post that this is the 4th book in the series... I will say I didn't feel like I was missing anything once I realized this. However, I do typically like to read all books in order so if you are like me please start with The Tenant which is on my to read list!  Korner and Werner are called in to investigate a missing teenager. He was supposed to stay with a friend, but never arrived there that night. Oscar has vanished, no one has seen him since shortly after school let out Friday afternoon. When his backpack is found down by the dock and the family boat is missing soon they begin to wonder did he leave on his own? Is he really missing or did he run away from something? The mystery deepens when a dead body turns up at the garbage dump. But all are shocked when they realize it isn't Oscar but his teacher Mal

The Admirer's Secret by Pamela Crane

 I won this in a Goodreads Giveway, so thank you to Goodreads and Amazon for a copy of this book. This book is told in first person with the majority of the chapters from Haley's POV, however Allen and Marc. It took me a minute what was going on and I will say this right off the bat, this wasn't my favorite. That being said it was interesting and it kept me reading. I just didn't love it. I don't always like first person especially if it has several different people because that can be confusing trying to figure out who is talking in that chapter. Haley has a secret and someone knows her secret, and she is starting to get worried about these letters. Who knows her like this, what do they want? Allen has secrets of his own and he really likes Haley, but he is hiding from his own past. The fact that his wife is missing doesn't stop him from fixating on Haley. Haley is in love, but Marc only has eyes for Julie or so we think, or does he?? So the one spoiler I will give

Review: Their Champion Complete Series: Books 1-4

Their Champion Complete Series: Books 1-4 by K.A. Knight My rating: 3 of 5 stars I did not know what I was getting into when I downloaded this complete series! K.A. Knight's dystopian "Mad Max" style story is intense, gritty, and raw! There are scenes of horrific torture and rape and as the reader you definitely get the picture that humanity has sunk to it's most base animalistic behaviors. There is no community, there is no hope, there is only predator and prey. There is only darkness. This series is not for the faint of heart or a casual reader. K.A. Knight does not pull any punches in her story telling or her descriptive dialogues. Her characters are not sugar and spice or anything nice. Her main female protagonist is leather and fire and blades and she makes no apologies for being just as brutal as the landscape around her. Yet if you asked me if I liked this series my answer would be yes. I liked it. I liked the rawness of it.

  Thank you to Netgalley and Tor Nightfire for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review. A man, a missing girl, a daughter, a bible reading cat and a desperate sister all converge on Needless Street. Ted lives there with his daughter and his cat Olivia. Although sometimes his daughter leaves, but no one sees her coming or going. He has had problems every since the little girl with the Popsicle disappeared.  He knows that there is a Murderer in his town, and he is trying to figure it out, but Ted drinks too much and has secrets.
