Thank you to HarperCollins Canada for my gifted copy of One More Lie by Amy Lloyd. This title is set to be published on May 28th. Here's a quick synopsis: Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard.

The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that's the one memory she can't face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down. (Reference : Goodreads) Happy reading,  Mommy Reads ...

I'm very excited to let you guys know that I will be part of The East End by Jason Allen's Blog Tour. My stop will be on May 10th, so be sure to come back and see what I think about the book! In the meantime, here is an excerpt: After sunset, Corey Halpern sat parked at a dead end in Southampton with his headlights off and the dome light on, killing time before the break-in. As far as he knew, about a quarter mile up the beach the owners of the summerhouse he’d been casing for the past two weeks were busy playing host, buzzed from cocktails and jabbering beside the pool on their oceanfront deck, oblivious that a townie kid was about to invite himself into their mansion while they and their guests partied into the night. Smoke trailed up from the joint pinched between Corey’s thumb and forefinger as he leaned forward and picked up a wrinkled sheet of paper from the truck floor. He smoothed out his final high school essay, squinting through the smoke-fi...
When I first heard about Missing Her, I was intrigued. I was lucky enough to be a part of the Street Team for the book and received an ARC from the author. Even though the book is fairly short, I was engrossed in the story. The storyline was suspenseful and even included a little bit of paranormal. I'm usually not a big fan of paranormal but in Missing Her, it fit right in the story. The author does a great job in taking the reader through a roller-coaster ride in the minds of the characters and you can't help but fly through the pages to try to solve the mystery. A big part of the book was predictable but there were still twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I'm impressed by the work the young author put together and I will definitely read her future books.  My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Here's a quick synopsis: Vanessa Stockton and her best friend Eliza are inseparable. They’re living the best years of their lives, enjoying high school, boy...
