A ghost. A killer. A man.
All three want to be a part of Elizabeth’s life… but for very different reasons.
Diary of a Dead Dreamer by N.C. Cummings is a dark read. It has a haunting theme. Action, consequences, and evil lies ahead. A young girl goes to college and her life falls apart instantly. Meeting one new girl, could destroy her completely. Elizabeth meets Sadie. There’s a lot of torture involved and many may not like it. Physical, emotional, and mental abuse happens on these pages. Nightmares that felt so real. The characters played their role just like they were meant to…however, I didn’t like them. I couldn’t like the girl who fell victim. Watching as she let her life fall apart was hard to do. I can’t stand characters who are crazy enough to let bad people torture them. The woman was at an age where she knew right versus wrong. Yet, she allowed herself to be hurt in a repetitive fashion. Chilling, frightening, and gruesome are the words I’d use to describe this thriller. As a reader, I couldn’t connect with the victim at all. That put me off from liking this title. Diary of a Dead Dreamer offers everything a thriller should offer. Overall, it was good but not my favorite.
First in a delicious new mystery series about Eva Knox and her family’s Georgia olive plantation.
In the sweet Southern town of Abundance, Georgia, home of the Knox family’s olive farm, gossip isn’t the only thing that can kill you…
After leaving a man at the altar for the second time in her life, Eva Knox decides to head home to her family’s plantation to regroup and soak in some Southern charm.

For one thing, most people in town still haven’t forgiven her for leaving local boy Buck Tanner at the altar and hightailing it up north eighteen years ago. For another, a death on her family’s farm soon makes her the lead suspect in a murder case—and the sheriff investigating is none other than Eva’s old flame Buck.
With the police putting the squeeze on her, it’s up to Eva and her sisters, Pep and Daphne, to figure out who could have possibly left a dead body in their olive grove. And they’ll have to catch the greasy killer quickly—because it looks like Eva has been picked as the murderer’s next victim…
One Foot in the Grove by Kelly Lane is a hilarious yet dark murder mystery. I love the main charcaters. Eva a woman returning home only to dig into a murder case, meet her former lover, and be labeled as a prime suspect when she’s really the next victim. I found Kelly Lane’s absolutely thrilling. Eva maked me laugh along as the clues fell into place. Suspense, intrigue, and sparks…all found inside One Foot in the Grove. This book was easy to read. Both the sheriff and leading female sleuth made fall in love with this engaging tale. I found it perfectly entertaining to read. Overall, I recommend it to readers everywhere.
This journey of the unexpected begins with the deployment of John Willoughby. He writes a letter expressing his committed love to his fiancee Tiffany Adams, who misplaces the letter within an hour after receiving it. Through happenstance, Kelly; the wife of another relationship finds the letter while walking her dog. Enthralled by the expressive content, she takes the letter home with the intent of using it as a tool to rekindle the spontaneity in her marriage; from there the story unfolds, into a series, of destructive episodes. The words and expressions intended for one relationship are read and conveyed in another. As a consequence of being involved, in Somebody Else’s Business, the trust and fidelity in Kelly’s marriage have been compromised. The seeds of assumption are carried yet further by an unwary housekeeper Maria, who promulgates a discovery of baseless assumptions implicating her employer’s husband of infidelity. A confrontation ensues. Guilt leads to the fate of a husband and the destruction of two additional relationships. Overall 15 lives are devastated based on assumptions. The characters are methodically developed and sequenced to bring home the lesson of “Speculative Disqualification.” From tragedy and fate, a victim emerges as a hero for social consciousness. The storyline transitions ingeniously for a climatic twist. The lesson ends with the consolation of its beginning. Though we watch from the sidelines and are entertained by the characters wit, keep in mind “Somebody Else’s Business” is everything and anything that doesn’t pertain to you.
Rating: 5 stars
