The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer was a book I had been eagerly anticipating; in an effort to beat my backlist and after several of my book blogging friends (namely, my good friend Janel at Keeper of Pages) sang the praises of this book, I decided to move this one to the top of my TBR pile. Luckily for me, #cjsreads decided to make this one of our February picks so I had to follow through!
Did I think it was worth moving to the top of my pile?

Lies, the newest psychological thriller by TM Logan, takes readers on a path of secrets and revenge. I read this one as a buddy read with Danielle at The Blonde Likes Books (you can check out her review here).
