#ThrowbackThursday The Kim Stone Series by @WriteAngie

Renee @It’sBookTalk began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of our old favorites as well as sharing books that we’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. I’ve wanted to join this meme for a long time and I thought it would be a great idea because it forces me to read books from the TBR and not only new releases. And, of course, I can also include some old favorites!

A year later after reading my first Angela Marsons book, I’m finally up to date with the series. The “Kim Stone” journey has been fantastic and this is already one of my favorite series ever! I’m so happy that we have plenty of books ahead to look for! I liked all the books, but my favorites were #3 & #6 and I will talk a bit about them.

I thought Silent Scream and Evil Games were unbeatable, but Lost Girls proved me wrong. It was such a compelling and twisty crime novel that I read it almost in one sitting. I didn’t realize I was on a plane. I was with Kim Stone, helping her bring the two girls home. The kidnapping case was smart and unpredictable, it changed directions more than once and provided some great twists that I never expected. And Angela Marsons is an excellent mystery writer, but she also writes the most beautiful and touching scenes.

After reading the fantastic Play Dead and Blood Lines, Dead Souls became my next favorite and the case was another gripping one. Old human bones were unearthed and a series of hate crimes are threatening the team… the last section of the book was equally terrifying and fascinating, it reminded me a bit of The Purge and Get Out and I couldn’t stop reading.

The last one, perhaps because it was my most recent, was equally impressive. An abandoned baby, murdered prostitutes… and an ending I never saw coming. Plus, Stacey and Dawson got to be partners and I loved their interactions in this book. And Dawson’s secret broke my heart. Did I mention how much I love him? Of course, Bryant and Stacey are great characters as well, Bryant is perhaps the most perfect man there is 😁

Here’s to many more books featuring Kim Stone and her team!

In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I'm just a twenty-something bookworm who loves old songs and 90s movies. I enjoy reading mystery and crime, coming of age stories, and historical fiction set in the last century.

  2. Well now you’ve really tempted me by naming so many favorites…I promise to read Angela Marsons in the first half of this year!! There, I’ve promised so I have to:) I seriously have FOMO when it comes to this series, I think everyone loves it. Oh and is this Bryant a new book boyfriend? I haven’t heard you mention him before and you know I’m always looking for a new one😉

  3. So I’m thinking I need to read this series this year! I think I started the first book once but I was in a mood and only read a couple chapters before it went back to the library. But if you like them so much, I’m sure I’ll enjoy them as well!
