Book Review: Going Rogue, Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich was published on November 1, 2022.  The novel opens with Stephanie Plum arriving at the bonds office on a Monday morning, and office manager Connie Rosolli isn't there.  When Stephanie finally gets into the office, the file room has been tossed.  Then comes the ransom call, which sends Stephanie on the hunt for a mysterious coin that she needs to get Connie released. The Stephanie Plum book series is one that I've come to love and enjoy when I need a light read that will give me some laughs.  Right off the start, this edition has yet again made me think it's now being ghost written because Lula is asking if one of the people bonded out by Vinnie is Joe Morelli's grandmother.  Lula already know who she is, so this is what made me think that it's ghost written.  If the author just wanted to reintroduce Bella, there had to be a better way to do this. With that being said, I absolutely lov

Book Review: The Tenant by Angela Lester

book review the tenant angela lesterDreaming of a life in music, Kate gives up her life as a librarian to go back to school at a prestigious college. Needing to rent a place to live, Kate answers an ad and moves in with Amy. At first, Kate is glad to have the support of her landlord, but when Kate's life starts to spiral out of control, Amy becomes a bit smothering in The Tenant by Angela Lester.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Inkubator Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Tenant by Angela Lester. The synopsis of the book and the cover intrigued me, and I was thrilled to receive a digital copy for free in exchange for my honest review.

The Tenant by Angela Lester is one of those novels that would make a great movie. The storyline felt vaguely familiar, but not in a bad way. I never did predict what was happening to the main character and was surprised at the ending.

Although I enjoyed this book quite a bit, there were points in the story that were slow moving, and I became a bit impatient, wishing that something surprising would happen. Even though it was a slow burn, I was glad I stuck with it. The ending was well worth the wait. I'll definitely read other books written by Angela Lester. 
All in all, I don't have anything negative to say about The Tenant by Angela Lester. I gave this book four out of five stars. I would recommend this book to those who like slow burns.
