BOOK TOUR - Hide in Place by Emilya Naymark

Hide In Place by Emilya Naymark March 1-31, 2021 Tour Synopsis: She left the NYPD in the firestorm of a high-profile case gone horribly wrong. Three years later, the ghosts of her past roar back to terrifying life. When NYPD undercover cop Laney Bird's cover is blown in a racketeering case against the Russian mob, she flees the city with her troubled son, Alfie. Now, three years later, she's found the perfect haven in Sylvan, a charming town in upstate New York. But then the unthinkable happens: her boy vanishes. Local law enforcement dismisses the thirteen-year-old as a runaway, but Laney knows better. Alfie would never abandon his special routines and the sanctuary of their home. Could he have been kidnapped–or worse? As a February snowstorm rips through the region, Laney is forced to launch her own investigation, using every trick she learned in her years undercover. As she digs deeper into the disappearance, Laney learns that Alfie and a friend had b

Review: This is How I Lied

This Is How I Lied 332 Pages  May 12, 2020 Source: Library  Synopsis from GoodReads: Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide… Twenty-five years ago, the body of sixteen-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa—discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence, the case ultimately went cold. For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep. This is the first book I have read by Heather Gudenkauf and it won't be the last!  I loved every page of th

Currently Reading   I've been reading Anxious People for a few weeks.  While I am enjoying it, I am having trouble getting into it.  I think it's more about me than the book.  I'm house-hunting and buying in my area feels like a full-time job and is taking up a lot of space in my brain.   I started listening to Caught on Audiobook yesterday and I'm intrigued to see where this story leads.  I started reading This is How I Lied last night before going to bed.   Reading before bed has always been a habit of mine.  I find it helps me relax and put the day behind me.  Sometimes I am bette

Barr on Tour October 12 - November 13, 2020 Synopsis: Grace Pierrepoint Rendell, the only child of an ailing billionaire, has been treated for paranoia since childhood.
