The Right Kind of Rogue
by Valerie Bowman
"The right kind of Regency romp"
Posted March 2, 2018

There is something swoon-inducing about your best friend's older brother, isn't there? The familiarity makes him attractively safe while the proximity lends an irresistible air of the forbidden. This dynamic is drawn out to satisfying conclusion in Valerie Bowman's THE RIGHT KIND OF ROGUE. Meg Timmons Read more...


Tangled in Time
by Barbara Longley
"Irish love across time and space"
Posted November 16, 2017

This story has enough in it to appeal to supernatural fans of every stripe. There are ghosts, psychic powers, and fairies. Even the hero's nickname, "Little Wolf," hints at some lupine possibilities. Luckily for Regan MacCarthy, the beautiful, masculine Faelan is neither a ghost nor a werewolf. No, this Read more...


The Determined Heart
by Antoinette May
"Determined? Maybe; With Heart? No"
Posted October 5, 2015

No one could rightly accuse Antoinette May of not doing her research in writing THE DETERMINED HEART: THE TALE OF MARY SHELLEY AND HER FRANKENSTEIN. However, no one could likewise assert that May has not fallen so in love with her research that she sacrificed storytelling for biographical detail.

The Visitant
by Megan Chance
"Un-scary with a side of un-romantic"
Posted September 17, 2015

At a taut 192 pages, The Woman in Black by Susan Hill is perhaps the classic example of a good ghost story's ability to suggest the terrifying and let our imagination do the rest. THE VISITANT: A VENETIAN GHOST STORY by Megan Chance is a classic example of the Read more...


Scheduled to Die
by Alan Cupp
"CARPE DIEM OR DIE"
Posted May 22, 2015

Attorney Mike Sweeney is the cherry on top of Dana Carrington's successful business trip to North Carolina. Not only is Mike attractive, charming, and driven, he's also from Chicago like Dana. After a chance encounter, they spend an evening getting to know each other over dinner, at the Read more...


The Far End Of Happy
by Kathryn Craft
"NIGHTMARES DRESSED LIKE OTHER NIGHTMARES IN TALE OF SUICIDE"
Posted April 21, 2015

From Oedipus Rex to Monster-in-Law, stories about romantic love are often equally stories about parental love -- and hate. Kathryn Craft's novel, THE FAR END OF HAPPY, follows in this tradition. It is the story of a man's suicidal standoff with police. Which is really the story Read more...


Meeting the English
by Kate Clanchy
"LOVELY SMOKY JEWEL OF A BOOK"
Posted March 29, 2015

1989: What a year, right? You will recall 1989 as the year of the fatwa against Salman Rushdie and the death of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Perhaps you remember where you were when you heard about the Exxon Mobil disaster or the debilitating stroke of playwright Phillip Prys. If you're Read more...


Leaving Before The Rains Come
by Alexandra Fuller
"MEMOIR AS LIGHTHOUSE: NEW BOOK GUIDES READERS THROUGH A LIFE OF CHOPPY WATERS"
Posted March 4, 2015

If ships at a distance carry every man's dreams on board, as Zora Neale Hurston wrote in Their Eyes Were Watching God, then ships at proximity carry the realization or denial of those dreams. In Alexandra Fuller's third memoir LEAVING BEFORE THE RAINS COME, the ships are people Read more...


When Lies Crumble

"DIRTY MONEY, BEAUTIFUL WOMEN IN CHICAGO"
Posted February 20, 2015

The first installment of the new Carter Mays mystery series by Alan Cupp, WHEN LIES CRUMBLE introduces us to a seamy underbelly of Chicago's upper middle class and the private investigator who uncovers it. When Cindy Bedford's fiancÚ disappears on their wedding day, she's crushed Read more...

I'm a college student in Wisconsin studying English and creative writing. I try to take my professors' advice to heart and read as much as possible. Much of that consists of historical fiction, mysteries and fantasies, preferably set in ancient Rome or 1800s England.
