80+ new releases today, with a few that have certainly caught my eye! I highlighted a bunch that sound pretty great, but here’s my own personal “extra-special-sounding” list (with quite a few from the bargains/reader recommendations section):
<— Black Sheep (all SORTS of dark family-drama sounding in this one!! They were in love and thought they’d be forever, until HIS father took her for his own…), Madly (She’s in a bar, spying on her mom with another man, and ropes a complete stranger into her drama), Rooke (she’s a romance-book addict and likes her quiet and “safe” single life, but this younger bad-boy throws her for a loop), Dishonorable (dark mafia romance and he steals her away to Italy as his restitution…), Juniper Smoke: Part I & II (I’ve actually just started this one, and this recommendation makes me extra-excited!!), The Last Girl (I one-clicked it, ’cause a story about an epidemic that leaves less than 1000 women left on earth has me terrified and intrigued!!), Everything We Keep (she lost her fiancé in an accident, but what she uncovers after him has her questioning everything…), Blank Space (I like the premise ’cause it’s a little different from our usual – they’re wealthy from their hunting empire!! – while still being similar to our usual, ’cause she’s a socialite with a BAD reputation, and he’s starting out his “deer stand” business, and her family gives HIM a big fat check to date her – and he’s all… OKAY!! *snort*), and Silent Child (me ‘n my vanishing child psych-thrillers. Don’t ask… I dunno. LOL! But this one sounds all sorts of traumatic and creepy)!

Tasha: I finished Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil. I agree with Bev, more people need to read this book!! It starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up. I didn’t want to put it down. It’s incredibly powerful and moving. I had tears, many times for the unfairness of it all. And chills a couple times, and some laughs too. I also liked following the mystery and clues to what happened. There were tons of characters, but I didn’t have any trouble following what was going on. They were very well constructed and I felt deeply for all of them. This book is definitely going on my favorites of 2017 list!
bev: Tasha! You’ve made my Saturday. Ha. Love it. Doesn’t it feel like this book is totally flying under the radar?
