Kindle Deals

A Study in Scarlet Women cover imageIf all my shouting about Sherry Thomas’ A Study In Scarlet Women still hasn’t gotten you to read it maybe its current price of $2.99 will?! (Review) (TW past rape–if memory serves right.)

If “a fractured family is forced to reunite literary novel that is held together by a mystery and sprinkled with suspense” sounds like your jam Dead Letters by by Caite Dolan-Leach is $4.99! (I do not remember trigger warnings, sorry.)

A Bit Of My Week In Reading

How Quickly She Disappears cover imageStarted: Rage Becomes Her by Soraya Chemaly on audio, which seems like a real fitting read right now.

Finished: How Quickly She Disappears by Raymond Fleischmann (Jan 14, 2020) which is a great historical suspense with a running thread of low level creep factor throughout. (TW child abuse/ suicidal thoughts/ pedophile)
