Review by LallaGatta – Forest Girl by Empi Baryeh

Not my kind of book. Dull, boring, not credible but with fascinating cultural insights . It was dull and boring, downright not credible. A man would never act as this author describes him. He would have discarded his fantasy long before Michael did and made his life with his new ...

Review by LallaGatta – The Guilt of Innocents by Candace Robb

Still disappointed with the character development 🙁 I keep reading this series for its well-depicted historical context and interesting mystery, but I'm still disappointed with Ms. Robb's weak character development. Not just between the protagonistsLucy and Owen, where it seems trust is lacking and anger or misunderstanding quick to fuel ...

Review by LallaGatta – The Apothecary Rose by Candace Robb

Disappointing! I had very high hopes for this book as I am a great fan of Ellis Peters. But unfortunately, this read isn't up to those standards. Not because of the historical setting, which was interesting and I believe thoroughly researched. Because of the characters. Because of Lucy and Owen ...

Review by LallaGatta – The Devotion Of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino

Review by LallaGatta – Mr Holmes by Mitch Cullin

Nostalgic and sad. I'm a Sherlock Holmes fan, and this book did him justice in a well written manner I found fascinating and enthralling. And that's the best praise I can write considering how misrepresented this popular character has been of late. Check it out on Amazon #LauraTolomei #LallaGatta #reading ...

Review by LallaGatta – Strip Jack by Ian Rankin

Unexpectedly good! Have to admit, I didn't expect the ending, so it was worth it in the end. I do have some issues with the inspector, though. I wish he'd clean up his act and went to see a dentist! I really didn't expect the ending, so the book was ...
