Honestly, sometimes I’m taken aback when a great book does not receive its due. Such is the case of R.J. Dillon’s espionage thriller Point of no Return. This heart-palpitating book is an incredibly professionally written story, filled with all the elements that make a great thriller impossible to put down. The author’s command of the inner wo...

I can only say a couple of things about this book that have not already been said. I read the book in two days, and I knew who committed the murder. I will also concur with other reviewers that have said they didn't like the characters, their self-absorption, their multitude of flaws and sameness of voice, their self-pity, their whining, and...

Even though I write romance/thrillers does not mean I have to read only one genre. I love immersing myself in other types of books. I am a voracious reader and take pleasure from all forms of the written word. Sue Monk’s The Invention of Wings was a spellbinding pleasure. It is a historical novel based on the life of Sarah Grimke a woman born...

The Hardest Ride is a Western, which is not my expertise in reviewing, however, given that disclaimer, it was a ride I could not put down.

Were it not for the brilliant ability of the author to blend history, diverse cha...
