It's that time of year again, a time to look back at the books we reviewed here at KRL over the past year and share with you some of our favorites! We reviewed a LOT of books here on KRL and KRL News and Reviews. All but one of our main reviewers shares in this post their top 5-10ish favorite books they reviewed in 2022. Katherine Costa wanted to include favorite authors and TV shows that she has reviewed, so hers went up in a separate post over on KRL News and Reviews this week-you can find it here!

Movieland By Lee Goldberg: Review/Giveaway

by Lorie Lewis Ham

Movieland is book 4 in Lee Goldberg’s Eve Ronin series. I have been a fan of Lee’s writing for many years, but this series is my favorite of his and these books always end up on my “Best Books of the Year” list. Eve is the youngest homicide detective in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, a position many think that she hasn’t earned since she got the job after a video of her went viral. Because of this, she isn’t very popular among her coworkers (which is putting it mildly in some cases), except for her soon-to-retire partner Duncan Pavone.
