About the Murder List: 

Law student Rachel North will tell you, without hesitation, what she knows to be true. She’s smart, she’s a hard worker, she does the right thing, she’s successfully married to a faithful and devoted husband, a lion of Boston’s defense bar, and her internship with the Boston DA’s office is her ticket to a successful future.

Problem is–she’s wrong.

And in this cat and mouse game–the battle for justice becomes a battle for survival.

The Murder List is a new standalone suspense novel in the tradition of Lisa Scottoline and B. A. Paris from award-winning author and reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan.

Early reviews are in!

Miss W’s Review: 

5 Fantastic Stars goes to The Murder List! I had the pleasure of reading Hank’s last novel, Trust Me, and I had high expectations for The Murder List, and I was not disappointed. The author has an extreme talent for crafting characters that are so complex, complicated and flawed. The story is edgy, intense, thought provoking and very twisty. I really enjoy the authors style of writing. The dual timelines really work in this whodunit. This is a tightly plotted, well paced psychological legal thriller that left me flipping the pages until the explosive end. That end blew me away. Honestly, I never saw that end coming. I highly recommend this book !

Series Highlight and a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Saturday Evening!

I am excited to share a series with you what has become one of my faves. Do you love chick lit mysteries? Boy, do I have the series for you and a GIVEAWAY! More on that a little later.

First let me introduce you to the author, Stephanie Damore. Stephanie Damore is a mystery author with a soft spot for romance and humor, too. She loves all things girlie with a dollop of danger, has a strong affinity for the color pink (especially in diamonds and champagne), and not to brag but chocolate and her are in a pretty serious relationship. Her books feature fearless females, a little bit of loves, a few laughs and a whole lot of whodunit. She hopes her stories keep you guessing and laughing all the way until the end.

I am happy to share with you more about Stephanie Damore’s Beauty Secrets Series. I would classify this as a chick lit mystery series. Its super fun! There are currently 6 books in the series with the 7th book available on preorder!

Check out the cover for Book 1, Makeup & Murder!


A little about the book: Beauty Consultant Ziva Diza is a girl boss who doesn’t back down from anyone. When she’s attacked inside a client’s home and wakes to find a dead body, she gives up the safety of selling lipsticks for the dangerous role of detective.

I really enjoyed the characters and the story and the mystery. I did not guess who the murderer was at all! This was a great start to a fantastic series. 

So lets talk about Book 2 …I think I mentioned a GIVEAWAY??? Book 2, Kiss & Makeup is the extremely popular follow up to Makeup & Murder. Look at this cover! I listened to this book on Audible and I absolutely loved the story and the narrator, Tonia Blake.

Do you love audiobooks? I do! I listen to them at work they are great!

I have FIVE audible copies of  Kiss & Makeup to give away ! I know you will love this series as much as I do.  All books in the series are stand alone stories , but I love to read in order, myself.
