REVIEW:
A quick read!
And a fun whodunit!
Amelia always gets the most interesting cases, that take her all over the world. I was actually surprised that her and Rick didn't go to Germany in this book, but still, they traveled. I liked that the good guys were also bad guys in this one too. Most clean reads don't go there, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I was trying to guess who stole the doll and why, and turned out wrong. I like that though, I didn't see it coming, or rather, get the notion, while reading. I did feel the end a little rushed through. Almost like the resolution came from nowhere and was wrapped up just as fast. Still, there was enough mystery and intrigue that I really enjoyed this story. At least as much as the others in this series.
What a fun series this is. I like watching Amelia and Rick figure out cases while figuring out each other. Makes for great reading. I look forward to reading, Her Lost Love.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
