Not a Happy Family by Shari Lapena  A Mystery/Thriller, 2021 by Pamela Dorman Books, 344 Page  What I Didn’t Like: There’s definitely a lot of out of touch rich people in this one.

2023 Book Review: Shampoo & Conditioner

Shampoo & Conditioner by M.L. Ortega A Mystery/Thriller, Independently Published in 2022, 101 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The story is very bare bones.

2023 Book Review: Sky Chase

Sky Chase by Lauren Massuda YA Fantasy, 2021 by Water Dragon Publishing, 272 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There are some comments about a character's weight that are not at all needed.
