What I #AmReading? It’s a crime thriller called A Lovely Murder by Lori Ericson. Check it out in this post and share what you’re reading!

#AmReading is a big hashtag we avid readers use. We all like to know what others are reading, and it's fun to look over someone's shoulder, so to speak, to find out what has their interest right now. I read quite a bit, and people often ask me what I'm reading, so I figured I'd start sharing it here on WriteOnPurpose.com in a new subcategory under Blissful Life called #AmReading.

One of my current reads is a crime thriller called A Lovely Murder by Lori Ericson. I will be reviewing this book here on this site soon, so watch for that.  I love suspense, cozy mysteries, and thrillers (among other genres), so this book caught my interest.

This book is the second in a series, and I have NOT read the first. That isn't bothering me at all as I read. I don't feel I can't understand this book because of not having read A Lovely County.

His past hadn’t been a problem until now but his predicament has drawn the attention of the one man in the state who would know him for who he really was.

Here is the book description from Amazopn:

One woman locked in a basement, nearing death and longing for escape. Another baffled by the inexplicable symptoms wreaking havoc on her life. Both are lost and alone, yet somehow connected. And time is running out...

Near the tenth anniversary of her parents' unexpected death, Claire Fiksen, a lovely young Harvard-grad and gifted psychologist in Minnesota, develops bizarre symptoms of an eating disorder that threaten her fledgling career, her relationship with a handsome young medical student, her grasp on reality and, soon, her life.
When her beloved grandfather reveals that there may be more to her parents' death than she's realized, Claire's pursuit of healing becomes a desperate search for answers as she delves into her family's sordid past. Meanwhile, someone is watching her every move, plotting to draw her into her own twisted web of misery.
Claire has something he needs, and he'll stop at nothing to obtain it. Every step Claire takes brings her closer to the truth and danger. And her life, she discovers, isn't the only one at stake.

This book began its journey as a memoir but became a thriller, one of Ms. McLaughlin's favorite genres. Now, time for my review: Continue reading "Book Review of Psychological Thriller In Her Shadow by August McLaughlin"

Book Review: Just Like Gravity by Sorchia DuBois

Each week, read a #bookReview on WriteOnPUrpose.com by best selling author, speaker & Top #BookReviewer Ronda Del Boccio. This week it’s a f the #paranormalromance Just Like Gravity by Sorchia DuBois. You’ll find out about the story and get some hints that can help you improve your writing skills.

Just Like Gravity is a new paranormal romance by Sorchia DuBois

Here's the description of the book from Amazon:

How many times can you make the same mistake? How many lifetimes does it take to get it right? And how many people have to die in the process? In Scotland,

Anna searches for answers. She finds cold rain, steep hills... and terror. When she sees the ancient broch, the ruined building triggers a terror she can’t explain. Scenes from her past lives provide glimpses of the web of events linking her to the broch and the man she’s lost countless times before.

Trapped in an eddy of Fate invariably ending in blood, Anna tries to break the chain and protect what she lost before. Her tealeaves and tarot cards lead her, but the weight of the past may be too heavy.

Have  you ever wondered if you have met someone in another life? Or whether perhaps, you had been lovers?  Perhaps your encounter is there to show  you a pattern that maybe this time you can break forever. That is one of the things you'll explore as you read Just Like Gravity.
