Just turned the last page. First thoughts - brilliant, loved it.

Wonderfully written, descriptive but not overly so, the story flowed and the plot moved at a great pace. There were twists and turns a plenty, keeping me in suspense, frantically turning the pages.

The characters were well fleshed out. I loved that the main characters were middle aged woman, beautifully drawn, imperfections and all. They each had their inner demons to battle, making them human. Being a woman who has battled

This is genre fiction pas de deux: It’s a good mystery with a truly creepy lesbian villain, and it’s a good romance featuring two lesbians who have landed desirable women and need to change their ways enough to hang onto them.

The book also fits into a third genre, one I particularly enjoy: fiction about lesbians in recovery. In that category it’s unique, as far as I know, in not only presenting a character who’s attending 12-step meetings, but also depicting how she uses the steps to solve a Big

I'm wavering between thinking the book was too short and just long enough. At 120 pages there isn't alot to read, but in that page count you have quite a bit going on - romance, mystery, industrial espionage, blackmail and all the threads coming together and being tied up nicely.

Laughlin writes a good mystery but in 120 pages, there isn't alot of room to plant the red herrings - but she still has a few surprises. If the book had been longer, I would have liked to see a bit more development of t

There's quite a lot packed into the 130 pages - Peg falling in love with Allison, obsessive ex of Allison's trying to remove Peg from the picture by digging up dirt and blackmailing her. There also comes a secondary story line with Peg's cop friend Morgan falling for a tech genius Laura. There's also a bit of mystery in between, and if you're paying attention to the dates written on top of the chapters - wow, it's everything just happened in a blast.

For me the book's close to a 4 star and I've d

Got an advance copy from netgalley for an honest review.

Camille is a piece of work, you really don’t want to get on her bad side or have her for an enemy. She will chew you up then swallow only so she can poop you out into the the trash where she thinks you belong. She has got some major problems and she just figured out that just because you're rich, doesn’t mean you get everything or anyone you want. Allison is a sweetheart and you can tell she likes her job. Meeting Peg after a car accident w

Sometimes Quickly was a short light read with a plot that has numerous good quality's to it. I found it very interesting how the characters lives were all intertwined together due to one sinister woman. I was definitely intrigued at what was going to happen next and the suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat. I was enjoying the book immensely when it just came to an abrupt end without really being finished. It appears as the author sets it up for there to be a second book, yet some ...more
