The Cruel Dark by Bea Northwick
Genres: Adult, Gothic, Romance
Black Harbor #3
When I'm Dead by Hannah Morrissey
Publication November 7, 2023
Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Crime
Taken from Goodreads: One girl murdered. Another one missing. And a medical examiner desperate to uncover the truth in the latest Black Harbor mystery by acclaimed author Hannah Morrissey.
On a bone-chilling October night, Medical Examiner Rowan Winthorp investigates the death of her daughter’s best friend. Hours later, the tragedy hits even closer to home when she makes a devastating discovery—her daughter, Chloe, is gone. But, not without a trace.
A morbid mosaic of clues forces Rowan and her husband to question how deeply they really knew their daughter. As they work closely to peel back the layers of this case, they begin to unearth disturbing details about Chloe and her secret transgressions…details that threaten to tear them apart.
Amidst the noise of navigating her newfound grief and reconciling the sins of her past, an undeniable fact rings true for Rowan: karma has finally come to collect.
My Thoughts: There is nothing better than a good thriller. I am new to this series and to Hannah Morrissey so I was not sure what to expect. I was not disappointed. When I’m Dead is a thriller that kept me wanting to read and figure out who dun it. The clues piled on and I was led in so many different directions that I just kept guessing.
The characters were realistic, with the high school students being students, the teachers being teachers, and the parents being parents. I liked the fact that they interacted in ways that were true to who they were, making the story even more real. Chloe’s parents were both very involved in finding Chloe (it is their jobs) and I liked that they stayed within protocol for the most part but showed the stress of not knowing what was happening with their daughter.
I am excited to see what happens next in Black Harbor and would recommend this series.
Thank you Minotaur Books for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

The Rivals We Hate by Brooke O'Brien is now live!
Football players are treated like royalty in our small town, which makes Beckham Carver their king. And as the new quarterback of the Braysen Bulldogs, he's now my boyfriend's biggest rival.
Add that to the list of reasons I should stay far away from him.
But when my truck breaks down, Beckham makes me an offer I can't refuse: He'll repair my pickup in exchange for me tutoring him.
I have only one stipulation—no one, including my boyfriend, can find out.
The more I try to convince myself and Beckham that I hate him, the more he pushes my buttons to prove me wrong.
Worse, the lines we've drawn between us blur as we spend more time together. And when my relationship comes crashing down around me, I almost forget why I couldn't stand him all along.
If I've learned one thing about Beckham Carver, it's that he always gets what he wants...
... and now, he's set his sights on me.

Watch Your Mouth by Kandi Steiner is now live!
My brother’s teammates know not to touch me—but that doesn’t stop me from daring Jaxson Brittain to be the first to break the rule.
After one steamy night in Austin, I’m all too aware of the hot, broody defenseman with icy blue eyes and ink sprawling his muscular arms. He was the one my brother assigned to keep me safe—and I had far too much fun tempting him to be the one to put me in danger.
It was just one night of tip-toeing the line, of teasing and flirting and messing around knowing nothing would ever come of it.
But when the universe throws me back into his lap two weeks later and we end up on a secret road trip together, all bets are off.
I can’t help but touch him. I can’t help but pray for him to touch me. And I can’t resist the temptation to test him at every turn.
Jaxson is smart and doesn’t have a death wish. So, like a gentleman, he keeps his hands to himself… the jerk.
But the closer we get on the road and the farther we get from reality, the less those warning signs from my brother seem to deter him.
When we started this road trip, we set a boundary. We promised to keep all arms and legs safely in the friend zone.
Now, miles and miles away from all the reasons we shouldn’t, all I can hear is my heart thumping out the resounding reason we should.
And the way those heated blue eyes watch me, I know I’m not the only one.

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”
She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.
