Review: The Apartment by K.L. Slater

When I read the premise of this novel, it immediately reminded me of a previous book I had read. After racking my brain and trawling through Goodreads, it came to me: the premise was similar to that of Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. While that book had not been the greatest, I hoped that this novel would be more…

Review: Pretty Ugly Lies by Pamela Crane

In accordance with my plan to read books about marriage (yes, I’m still doing that), I decided to give this one a shot. What made it more interesting was the fact that it centered around more than just one woman. I wanted to see all of the different issues that could be brought to the forefront by each character. So…

Review: The Innocent Wife by Amy Lloyd

My Review The Pros: What worked for me The premise was very interesting. I’ve heard numerous stories about people falling in love with prisoners on death row, and how they believe that the prisoner is innocent. Seeing whether this would be a case of true love and whether this man was truly innocent kept my interest piqued throughout the story.…
