the 9th Girl and Mean Streak Book Review


The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag

What is this book about?
"On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman is found brutally murdered—the ninth so far this year in a string of grisly slayings. Homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska fear that it’s the work of a serial killer they call Doc Holiday, a transient who has brought his gruesome game to a new and more terrifying level. But as Kovac and Liska uncover the truth, they find that the monsters in the ninth girl’s life may live closer to home. And even as another young woman disappears, they have to ask the question: Which is the greater evil—the devil you know or the devil you don’t?" excerpt from

What do I think about the book?
- This book is definitely one of those books that discuss really issue and something that I can relate with
- this is my first book by Tami Hoag. I think after reading this book I will definitely become one of her fans
- My only problem with the book was, the use of too many nicknames. It took me awhile to realise that Nikki, Liska and Tink is the same person.
- The book definitely deal with all the things that I am worry about - bullying, social media, depression and all things related to teenage rebellion
- This book definitely kept me on edge and I was totally surprise with the identity of the killer. Totally unexpected.

I highly recommend this book to anybody who loves detective story and action pack storyline


Mean Streak by Sandra Brown

What is this book about?
Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive. 

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion

What do I think about the book?
- I've always love Sandra Brown book. 
- It has romance, mystery and action all in one book
- the writing style is easy to follow and the storyline is beautifully told
- the are a few parts that doesn't make sense to me like how a marathon runner got hit by a rock while running and why would FBI agent search for a man that is not a criminal but a hero? Hemmm ..
- Other than that I totally enjoy the book, fun and entertaining

Read the book if you love Sandra Brown and love to read fun and entertaining story
