Review: The Hypnotist

The Hypnotist
The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Hypnotist is about a hypnotist who, after a ten year hiatus, hypnotizes the victim of a crime. After doing this, his life filled with twists and turns. I won this book from the first-reads author giveaway. This book was a little hard to get into at first, but I was eventually drawn into it. Sometimes there were details that could have been left out because it made for very boring reading. There is also a lot of going back and forth throughout the book. Overall, it was a pretty good read.

Review: A Reason to Kill

A Reason to Kill
A Reason to Kill by Nathaniel Tower

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A Reason to Kill is a murder mystery told through the voices of the killer and the detective trying to catch him. I like the fact that the story is told from both perspectives. I enjoyed reading this book.

I only have two negatives about this book. The first is the fact that the reader is left hanging about certain details in the book (cannot go into detail without giving the story away. The other negative is that by the middle of the book I had already figured out who the killer is.

Overall this was a really good book. I would recommend it if you are a fan of mysteries. It is a page-turner.

WITHOUT REPROACH by Anthony James Barnett

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Without Reproach is the story of Jenny and her mysterious inheritance. She goes on a mission to find out why she received the inheritance and who gave it to her. During her journey she encounters Eduardo, a handsome man who is also a mystery. What does he know about her inheritance? Can he be trusted?

Without Reproach is an intriguing story with interesting characters. The scenery is beautiful and makes you want to be there. This is a great read for lovers of mystery and romance. I would love to read a sequel to this book.
