Welcome one and all to the week in review!
Week in Review is when we take a look at the past week and everything that’s been going on at Paperbackdolls.com – plus we share what you can expect from the week to come…
So lets get to it!
Previously on Paperback Dolls . . .

On Monday Mona reviewed Vicki Delany’s Among the Departed
Among the Departed: A Constable Molly Smith Mystery (Constable Molly Smith Novels)

Fifteen years ago a young girl by the name of Moonlight Smith went to her best friend Nicky Nowak’s house for a sleepover. Moonlight joined the family for breakfast the following morning and was then picked up by her mother. Shortly after, Mr. Nowak went for a walk.

He was never seen again.

Autumn has arrived on the mountains above Trafalgar, B.C., and the promise of winter is in the air. Constable Molly Smith is cuddled by the fireplace with Adam Tocek of the RCMP when Tocek and his dog Norman are called to a wilderness camping ground to join the search for a little boy who snuck away from his family looking for bears.
The child is found, dirty, terrified, weeping, but unharmed. Then the inquisitive Norman digs up something else: human bones.
The ID isn’t positive, but it is enough to have Sergeant John Winters of the Trafalgar City Police pulling old boxes from the basement to reopen the Brian Nowak investigation. He finds a family shattered beyond recognition by the disappearance of their husband and father. 
As the investigation into the life and disappearance of Brian Nowak grows, old secrets are brought to light and new ones struggle to remain hidden. Read her review Here

Later Monday Noa shared her experiences from Book Expo America
Part I She was also back Friday for Part II 

Then Tuesday Mona reviewed Of Dukes and Deception by Wendy Soliman

Of Dukes and Deceptions
When Nicholas Buchanan, the Duke of Dorchester, accepts an invitation to visit a country stud farm, he counters his boredom by striking a wager with his henchman that he’ll bed the poor relation, Alicia Woodley, before the end of his stay. But he reckons without Alicia’s disdain. She’s disgusted by Nick’s cavalier attitude, unimpressed by his grandeur and wants as little as possible to do with him.

Between her newfound role as family charity case and fending off the attentions of both her clueless cousin and the arrogant Nicholas, Alicia Woodley has quite enough to contend with…but when her life is endangered, quite possibly from those closest to her, surprisingly it is Nicholas who seems determined to ensure her safety. As they conspire to uncover secrets that the family wants hidden at all costs, they discover a passion that surpasses all obstacles. Read it Here

Thursday, Author Shiloh Walker visited the Dollhouse for an interview!
And a special swag giveaway!

Then Friday we had a giveaway of Andrea Kane’s suspense thriller The Girl who Disappeared Twice 

The Girl Who Disappeared TwiceSHE COULDN’T STOP IT. NOT THEN. NOT NOW. If she’d only turned her head, she would have seen the car containing her daughter, struggling to get out. Struggling to escape her kidnapper.
Despite all her years determining the fates of families, veteran family court judge Hope Willis couldn’t save her own. Now she’s frantically grasping at any hope for Krissy’s rescue. Her husband dead-set against it, she calls Casey Woods and her team of renegade investigators, Forensic Instincts.
A behaviorist. A techno-wizard. An intuitive. A former Navy SEAL. Unconventional operatives. All with unique talents and personal reasons for being part of Casey’s group, they’ll do whatever it takes.
Able to accurately read people after the briefest of encounters, Casey leads her crew to Krissy’s home. There, she picks up the signs of a nervous spouse, a guilty conscience, a nanny that hides on her cell. She watches as secrets beg to creep into the open.
Forensic Instincts will dig through each tiny clue and eliminate the clutter. But time is running out, and even working around the clock, the authorities are bound by the legal system. Not so Casey’s team. For they know that the difference between Krissy coming back alive and disappearing forever could be as small as a suspect’s rapid breathing, or as deep as Hope’s dark family history.

Finally, Saturday Tween Desi reviewed Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl…and we have a giveaway! See how you can enter Here

Beautiful Creatures (Beautiful Creatures, Book 1)Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Sometimes life-ending.

Next week on Paperback Dolls . . .

Father’s Day is coming up soon and here at the Dollhouse we decided to celebrate by taking a week to raise a glass to the Bad-Ass men and boys in books!  Yup, it’s time for…

With a week filled with lots of surprises for you our followers! 
Giveaways, guest blogs, special guests, reviews and of course – each doll will share her own favorite 
BadAss characters! So who are they? You’ll just have to wait and see! 😉

Then later in the week we’ll also have an ARC review of the latest installment in the Lady Julia Grey series – The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn! (Because Brisbane is quite a BadAss himself!)

The Dark Enquiry (A Lady Julia Grey Novel)

Partners now in marriage and in trade, Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have finally returned from abroad to set up housekeeping in London. But merging their respective collections of gadgets, pets and servants leaves little room for the harried newlyweds themselves, let alone Brisbane’s private enquiry business.

Among the more unlikely clients: Julia’s very proper brother, Lord Bellmont, who swears Brisbane to secrecy about his case. Not about to be left out of anything concerning her beloved—if eccentric—family, spirited Julia soon picks up the trail of the investigation.
It leads to the exclusive Ghost Club, where the alluring Madame Séraphine holds evening séances…and not a few powerful gentlemen in thrall. From this eerie enclave unfolds a lurid tangle of dark deeds, whose tendrils crush reputations and throttle trust.
Shocked to find their investigation spun into salacious newspaper headlines, bristling at the tension it causes between them, the Brisbanes find they must unite or fall. For Bellmont’s sake and more they’ll face myriad dangers born of dark secrets, the kind men kill to keep…

That’s it for us this week! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
