Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

All the Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson

This is a soap opera-ish mystery.   A man is murdered and his son finds out that his father may not be exactly who he thought he was.  

Harry is a somewhat hapless, very recent college graduate who discovers unsettling things about his Dad and his stepmother.  

The book does an now and then type of flip flopping.  We get current behavior in the now and the back story in the then.   It sounds cumbersome but it works.

Several murders, a set of attractive twins, a hapless college grad, a sex offender, a model and a psychopath provide a wealth of characterizations that Swanson manages well.

I enjoyed the book and recommend it.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
