Title: The Good Samaritan
Author: John Marrs
Publication Date: December 1, 2017 / April 12, 2018
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ (4.5 stars)
The people who call End of the Line need hope. They need reassurance that life is worth living. But some are unlucky enough to get through to Laura. Laura doesn’t want them to hope. She wants them to die.
Laura hasn’t had it easy: she’s survived sickness and a difficult marriage only to find herself heading for forty, unsettled and angry. She doesn’t love talking to people worse off than she is. She craves it.
But now someone’s on to her—Ryan, whose world falls apart when his pregnant wife ends her life, hand in hand with a stranger. Who was this man, and why did they choose to die together?
The sinister truth is within Ryan’s grasp, but he has no idea of the desperate lengths Laura will go to…
Because the best thing about being a Good Samaritan is that you can get away with murder.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This list was so hard. It’s rare for me to truly dislike a book – I’m either really lucky in my picks or just do a great job of avoiding ones I don’t think will do it for me. And when I do hate books, it’s usually because there’s not a single likable character to be found or I don’t remember any of the characters.
For this theme, I’m going to choose characters I appreciated in books that weren’t favorites of mine – which only means, if a book is on this list, it’s not one of the few books on my favorites shelf. There are a good handful in here I actively disliked … and some characters whose names I honestly can’t remember … but for the most part, plenty of these were decent reads with characters that stood out to me for one reason or another.

Title: This Fallen Prey
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Series: Rockton, #3
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
Publication Date: February 6, 2018
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5 stars)
When Casey Duncan first arrived at Rockton, the off-the-grid, isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect. There are no cell phones, no internet, no mail, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. She certainly didn’t expect to become the town homicide detective. But, the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their midst without a plan to keep him imprisoned. And she never thought that she’d have to be responsible for him.
The longer Oliver Brady stays in town, the more people seem to die around him. When evidence begins piling up that someone inside Rockton is working as his accomplice, Casey races to figure out who exactly Brady is and what crimes he’s truly responsible for committing.
