About this book:

  “When Mary bumps into her neighbor one summer evening, she’s glad to see that Cathy has a new man in her life/ the couple is heading to the marina to take a sunset whale-watching cruise, and Mary wishes them well. But the next day Mary sees that Cathy’s newspaper is still lying on the porch and her mail hasn’t been collected. As the days go by, it’s clear that Cathy never came home that night and is now missing!

My personal Rating-

This mystery kept me interested because I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out. It was a little rushed at the end, but other than that, it was an interesting story.


See y’all on Friday with a new review!

About this book:

  “Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion.

My personal Rating-

While very different from past Lisa Harris suspense books—the ones that deal with drug trafficking and like her prior release, cybersecurity—this one dealt with bioweapons and it was very interesting. I’ll admit that some of the science parts lost me, but it wasn’t often, so kudos to the author for making it pretty simple and easy to understand.
Personally, it wasn’t as exciting to me as “A Secret to Die For”, the author’s prior book, but I did love Caitlyn’s last name (😉) and that it was set in Texas. This novel starts hard and deals with some real-life unpleasantness, but it was very interesting. I don’t think the plot was my favorite by Lisa Harris (including all the mentions of affairs/a mistress), but I’m curious to learn more about her next book.
