    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Willa Pennington left the police force to become a PI, but when she stumbles on a body, she realizes it might actually be harder than what she anticipated. The cover doesn?t tell it but this actually an amazi...

    I was impressed with this author's first book. She has a way with intermixing suspense with humor that has you on the edge of your seat while also hanging on to it from laughing. What Doesn't Kill You kicks off a new series about a former police officer who quits to join her father...

    First offering from a new author who understands the word "suspense" to the core. Dark and mysterious, featuring characters who are struggling separately and together to find meaning and direction after a terrible tragedy. Nothing is what it seems and the author makes the most of that ...

    All debut novels should be as good as this one. It's a romantic thriller with a strong female protagonist, with enough romance for those that like that element in their novels, and enough solid thrills for those who want to be on the edge of their seat, dammit! I read it in one sitting...

    This is one of the most amazing firsts in a new series I've read in at least 10 years. I promise not to hold my breath till the next book arrives at my door, but please don't let it be too long. ...

    This is the author's first book, a crime/suspense book and I must say it's hard to describe it. Nothing of the book was for my liking, for the premise you thought it would be a good cop/PI story with a character super badass who would get you inside the story and you would just finish ...

    Thank you so much to netgalley and to Midnight Ink for providing an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I am blown away by this book. It contains all that I look for in a thriller. The main character, Willa, is strong but flawed. She's an ex-cop who is starting down ...

    2.5 stars I'm always on the lookout for a good mystery or thriller and the blurb for this one sounded quite promising. Unfortunately, the reality didn't quite live up to that promise. The story starts out mysterious enough with our main character finding a dead body, but it quickly be...

    Three and a half stars; a strong beginning to a new series set in NoVa (Northern Virginia) which has never been my favorite place. However, ex-cop Willa Pennington and her cohorts fighting crime there are enticing enough to make me reassess by opinion. Willa's back story is intriguing ...

    What a knock out debut for Ms. Hix, I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us regarding the headstrong ex-cop, Willa Pennington, and her sexy childhood crush, Seth Anderson. Willa left the local police department after a tragic event left her re-evaluating her career path....

    What Doesn't Kill You is Aimee Hix's debut novel, but if you didn't know that, you'd be hard pressed to realize it. This novel reads as smooth and seasoned as the middle of a series, not the beginning. I was fortunate to read an early copy, and I remember being struck by the unfettered...

    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Willa Pennington left the police force to become a PI, but when she stumbles on a body, she realizes it might actually be harder than what she anticipated. The cover doesn?t tell it but this actually an amazi...

    All debut novels should be as good as this one. It's a romantic thriller with a strong female protagonist, with enough romance for those that like that element in their novels, and enough solid thrills for those who want to be on the edge of their seat, dammit! I read it in one sitting...

    This is the author's first book, a crime/suspense book and I must say it's hard to describe it. Nothing of the book was for my liking, for the premise you thought it would be a good cop/PI story with a character super badass who would get you inside the story and you would just finish ...

    Aimee Hix is a new author to watch out! I really enjoyed the first book of the Willa Pennington series and` ll looking forward for the next books. At the beginning I had a bit to struggle with the frist-person narrative, because it`s not my favoured narrative form when Im reading a...

    I highly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to other mystery lovers! The only issue I had with this book was that it was a bit slow in places. In this book the MC is asked to help a girl leave her abusive boyfriend. I have been in this situation on both sides of it and in both si...

    Willa Pennington is an ex-cop, now in training to follow her father as a Private Investigator. She is asked to help a family friend's daughter. The daughter wants to leave the house she's been sharing with her abusive boyfriend ... and wants someone with her while she moves. When W...

    A 28-year-old ex-cop, Willa Pennington, investigates a neighborhood murder only to discover an old flame, Seth, is also involved. A reluctant romance is rekindled with Seth. Willa's investigation soon goes beyond a simple murder and some truly sinister people become suspects. Then, as ...

    What a knock out debut for Ms. Hix, I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us regarding the headstrong ex-cop, Willa Pennington, and her sexy childhood crush, Seth Anderson. Willa left the local police department after a tragic event left her re-evaluating her career path....

    What Doesn't Kill You is Aimee Hix's debut novel, but if you didn't know that, you'd be hard pressed to realize it. This novel reads as smooth and seasoned as the middle of a series, not the beginning. I was fortunate to read an early copy, and I remember being struck by the unfettered...

    The best debut I've read this year?I adored Willa Pennington and had a blast following her through this smart, well-plotted mystery. I can't wait for the next book in this series! ...

    I was impressed with this author's first book. She has a way with intermixing suspense with humor that has you on the edge of your seat while also hanging on to it from laughing. What Doesn't Kill You kicks off a new series about a former police officer who quits to join her father...

    Love Story. I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Written by Aimee Hix, and published by Midnight Ink in Woodbury, Minnesota in 2018, the novel is purported to be a PI procedural murder investigation story. In fact, h...

    All debut novels should be as good as this one. It's a romantic thriller with a strong female protagonist, with enough romance for those that like that element in their novels, and enough solid thrills for those who want to be on the edge of their seat, dammit! I read it in one sitting...

    This is one of the most amazing firsts in a new series I've read in at least 10 years. I promise not to hold my breath till the next book arrives at my door, but please don't let it be too long. ...

    This is the author's first book, a crime/suspense book and I must say it's hard to describe it. Nothing of the book was for my liking, for the premise you thought it would be a good cop/PI story with a character super badass who would get you inside the story and you would just finish ...

    2.5 stars I'm always on the lookout for a good mystery or thriller and the blurb for this one sounded quite promising. Unfortunately, the reality didn't quite live up to that promise. The story starts out mysterious enough with our main character finding a dead body, but it quickly be...
