Keep You Cold: Chilling Tales by A. J. Franks

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “It might seem counterintuitive that a collection of stories, most of which contain murder, suicide, or other forms of sinister fate, could be considered fun, but Franks’ writing carries a frisson of voyeuristic pleasure that is undeniably entertaining—and somehow uplifting—for the reader.”

Whisper of Hope by J.B. Millhollin

Rating: ★★★★

RCR Says: “While the story is quite heavy on dialogue, which might turn off readers who are looking for a more atmospheric experience, quick scenes and a constant drip of dramatic tension give the book an almost breathless lightness, making it the perfect summer read.”
