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 Nanny by Ruth Heald

book review the nanny ruth heald

The Nanny by Ruth Heald opens with Hayley Taylor hurrying to pick her daughter up from school and is keeping a secret from her husband.  Hayley was a nanny in Thailand during her gap year, and one of the children disappeared.  When a potential lodger shows up to view the room for rent and looks like the kid who went missing when Hayley was a nanny, her whole world just may come crashing down around her.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank NetGalley and Bookoutre for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Nanny by Ruth Heald.  I was intrigued by the synopsis and cover of the novel, and I was not disappointed in the least.

Switching back and forth from the present and past, The Nanny weaved a thrilling story that kept me on the edge of my seat.  There were a lot of twists and turns that threw me for a loop, and I was completely wrong in what I thought was going to happen.  

Had it not been a work night, I would have stayed up until the wee hours of the night to finish this book.  With that being said, I did finish it within twenty-four hours of starting the book.  It really was that good!!  I find my self still thinking about the story and characters.

There is nothing negative I could say about The Nanny by Ruth Heald, and I gave it five out of five stars.  I can't wait to read other novels written by this author.  The Nanny by Ruth Heald is due out on September 8, 2022.
