Life threw me lemons so I used them to clean my garbage disposal and now my house smells fresh. I run on coffee and chocolate with a little craft beer thrown in for good measure. When I'm not writing or reading or creating in some other way, I'm out and about with the kids or catching up on the latest Netflix Original. Check out my complete book reviews on my blog!

I could probably break this series up, book by book but it seemed a better idea to write one rave review than several. While I have my favorite installments in the Allie Beckstrom series, I truly enjoyed each book individually.

It's a decent mystery/crime. The writing is a little rough at times and I figured out the killer a little too soon for my tastes but I'm used to that.

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
