Shattered by Allison Brennan *Stephanie’s Review*

I couldn’t wait to pick up the newest Max Revere novel Shattered by Allison Brennan. This series is fascinating for me. It combines a tough as nails female protagonist and cold cases being resolved.

Summer on Firefly Lake by Jen Gilroy *Stephanie’s Review*

I was a sophomore in high school when the Twin Towers were struck. During my lifetime my country has been at war with one […]
