Secrets of the Dead by Carol Wyer

Secrets of the Dead.2.995:30

New Unputdownable Crime Thriller by Carol Wyer, Coming 5/30/17!

This is One Book that You’re Not Going to Want to Miss!

 

Secrets of the Dead is a Brilliantly crafted, perfectly paced crime thriller. I loved every page of this riveting novel.

DI Robyn Carter is exhausted, she hasn’t slept in days; neither has her team. There is a serial killer loose in Litchfield England, and the dead bodies are beginning to pile up. Because, of gang war killings in the area, DCI Mulholland can’t authorize more help for Robyn’s team. DI Tom Sherarer should be working with Robyn, but because she has bruised his ego, Tom is blocking Robyn’s progress instead of assisting her. But, DI Robyn Carter is not above breaking a few rules, and if thinking and working outside the box is what it takes to get the job done, then so be it.

Journalist, Amy Walters, named the serial killer, the Lichfield Leopard, and the residents of the town are petrified. Someone is feeding Amy information, but who? The killer always seems to be one step ahead of DI Carter, and the thought of more innocent lives being taken was making Robyn sick. The race to capture the scruffy, wild-eyed, crazed monster was on.

There isn’t a dull page in this book. It’s captivating and unputdownable. The tension, twists and turns, kept me flipping the pages. This is the first book that I have read by this talented author, but it won’t be my last. I love finding new favorite authors, and Carol Wyer is now one of them. I’ll eagerly await for her next book to be published. Don’t miss discovering this author for yourself. Secrets of the Dead gets 5-shining stars from me.

Serenity Avenged by Craig A. Hart

Serenity Avenged.2.99

 

Don’t Miss Craig Hart’s Newest Compelling Thriller!

 

Serenity Avenged is the third riveting book in the Shelby Alexander Thriller Series.
Ex-boxer and fixer, Shelby Alexander was not looking forward to seeing his former wife, Helen. But, their daughter, Leslie, was in the hospital, so it was time for him to put his uncomfortable feelings aside. Helen had been trying to cozy up to him lately, though. Shelby wasn’t sure what his ex-wife’s game was, but figured it was probably money related.

Helen had made the most dangerous decision of her life, when she approached Darkmore, for a loan. She’d been desperate at the time, but realizes now, what a huge mistake it was. Not having the money, to pay back a shady loan shark, came with grave consequences.

Darkmore was a sadistic crime lord. When his clients couldn’t pay, he tortured them until they found the money. Jimmy had always looked up to his uncle. He had no idea, though, about his uncle’s true dark nature, until he started to work for him. Jimmy, got his first violent lesson, fast enough, though, as soon as his client, Helen, couldn’t pay back her loan.

Serenity Avenged is a gritty crime thriller; well-written and filled with realistic characters, dialogue, and suspense. Once I started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this compelling thriller.

Thank you, Craig Hart, for my complimentary review copy. I loved it!

Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen

Gone without a trace

Complex, Brilliant and Riveting!

Don’t Miss- Gone Without a Trace-

I Absolutely Loved This Book!

Gone Without A Trace is a fast-paced, psychological thriller. I was intrigued and gripped from the first page until the last.

Hannah couldn’t wait to tell Matt, her great news. She was finally getting the promotion that she’d been aiming for. Everything was fabulous in her world until she got home.

Matt and all of his possessions were gone. Every picture, every suit, every DVD had disappeared. They loved each other. Hannah was sure of it. And, they were getting along well enough, or so she thought. Why would Matt leave and remove every trace of himself, from her life?

Hannah became obsessed with Matt. Her work began to slip, as well as her memory. She was snippy and unprofessional. Thankfully, Hannah had her best friend, Kate, to confide in. How could she tell anybody, that her boyfriend had left her, taking everything he owned, without even saying goodbye? It was humiliating. The life Hannah had so meticulously controlled, was now in shambles. Friends and work associates acted as if, she had lost her mind, and maybe she had. Hannah was having trouble discerning what was real and what was not. One thing Hannah knew, for sure, though, was that someone, was watching her every move, and she was terrified.

Gone Without A Trace is a superbly written, fast-paced thriller. The author’s brilliant plot twists, kept me captivated and flipping the pages, until the end. I found the book to be highly entertaining and impossible to put down.

Thank you, Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

The Secret Room by Sandra Block

The Secret Room:

Sandra Block’s Newest Gripping Thriller- The Secret Room- I Loved IT!

The Secret Room is a compelling and brilliantly crafted thriller.
Mysterious deaths were piling up at the Buffalo Correctional Facility, and the common denominator in all of them, was their psychiatrist, Dr. Zoe Goldman.

Dr. Zoe Goldman was a mess. She couldn’t sleep, eat or shut off her mind. She was being called into the Warden’s office on a regular basis. Someone was killing her patients and sending her chilling texts. And, to add to Dr. Goldman’s already over-the-top anxiety, Zoe was keeping a huge secret from, Mike, the man she loved. Zoe suspected the person behind the texts and suspicious deaths, was her very own psychopathic sister, Sophie. And why not? It wasn’t as if Sophie hadn’t killed someone Zoe loved, before.

The Secret Room kept me on edge from the very beginning of the book until the end. It’s a complex thriller with many twists, turns, and surprises. I found the characters fascinating, the dialog natural and the writing superb. I loved it. I was thrilled to add Sandra Block to my list of favorite authors. Now, I can’t wait for her next gripping novel!

Thank you, Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

the-duke

Kerrigan Byrne’s Newest Release.

Imogen Pritchard’s life changed drastically after her father died. He left his family desolate. Imogen, much to her dismay was forced to work at the Bare Kitten as a server to pay off her father’s debt. She also worked at St. Margaret’s Hospital as a nurse to support her younger sister and ailing mother.

Collin Talmage, the new Duke of Trewyth, entered the Bare Kitten to drown his sorrow in alcohol. He was intrigued with Imogen, aka, Ginny. He convinced, the owner, to sell her to him for the night. What happened during that night surprised both Ginny and Collin. Ginny’s memories of Collin’s tenderness comforted her during many lonely nights. And, Ginny’s loving memory gave Collin a place to retreat to while being tortured in a Turk prison.

A couple of years later, fate brought Collin and Imogen together again, only this time, they were two very different people. Collin was an angry, bitter man, and Imogen, a widowed Countess. Unfortunately for Imogen, her home was next-door to The Duke of Trewyth. She lived in fear of being recognized by him, as the Ginny; he once spent a night with. If Imogen’s carefully concealed past were to be exposed, it would ruin not only her but her family also. Although Collin thought Imogen to be a foolish and annoying neighbor, he found himself protective of her, especially when women resembling Imogen were being murdered all around her. Collin was determined to find out who exactly this beautiful neighbor of his was.

This is the fourth book in the Victorian Rebels series. Imogen is a lovable character, strong and caring. Collin was a more difficult character to like because of his cruel, angry outbursts. The Duke is a well-written and captivating romantic tale as well as an intriguing mystery.

*Serenity Stalked* by Craig A. Hart

serenity-stalked

Don’t Miss Craig Hart’s Newest Release!

Serenity Stalked is the second compelling book in the Shelby Alexander Thriller Series.

Ex-boxer Shelby Alexander initially moved to Serenity, to be close to his daughter. He was hoping that the small Michigan town would also bring him a bit of peace and quiet, but he was wrong. Since moving to Serenity, both his boxing and fixer talents have been called upon. In book one of the series, Shelby Alexander comes up against his trigger-happy, drug dealing neighbors. And, in book two, Serenity Stalked, Shelby finds himself running from the law and hunting down a serial killer at the same time.

Shelby Alexander and Sheriff Wilkes could barely tolerate one another. So when the murder weapon used to kill the Blair family, was found in Shelby Alexander’s shed, Sheriff Wilkes was more than happy to slap the cuffs on the old ex-boxer. Shelby was never a runner, but he couldn’t keep Carly safe if he were locked up in a jail cell. However, while Shelby was hiding out, he realized that he had made a terrible and grave mistake.

Serenity Stalked is a perfectly paced, riveting crime thriller. I loved the first book in this series, so I couldn’t wait to read the second. Although the book is short, it is well-written and exciting. I’ll be looking forward to book three.

Thank you, Craig Hart, for my complimentary review copy. I loved it.

gone

 

Newest Release by Elisabeth Naughton

Don’t Miss It!

Gone is a riveting romantic suspense novel.
Alec and Raegan were a happily married couple until the unthinkable happened; their little girl, Emma, was abducted. Alec tore himself up with guilt. This was all his fault. He turned his back for a minute, and Emma was gone. He had an idea, though, who had kidnaped her; he just couldn’t prove it. His father told him that he would pay one day for testifying against him, and Alec knew that day had come.

Instead of drawing closer to support one another, Alec and Raegan pulled apart. Alec couldn’t stand seeing Raegan in pain, so Alec pushed her away, and drank himself into oblivion. Raegan swallowed her grief and went to work every day. She never; however, gave up the hope of finding her daughter.

Three years had passed before Alec and Raegan were brought together again. This time Alec was determined to make amends to Raegan, stay sober, and help find their little girl. But, the deeper they searched, the more nervous the mastermind behind several abductions, became. John Gilbert didn’t care, though; he could handle the heat. What he couldn’t handle, however, was passing up an opportunity to torture his son and his cute little ex-wife Raegan. No, he wasn’t done with them yet. Not by a long shot.

Be prepared to have your heart pulled through a gamut of emotions. Although the pages of this book are filled with raw emotion, there are also inspirational messages of hope sprinkled throughout the novel. Gone is a well-written story, with an intriguing plot, fully developed characters, and realistic dialogue.

Thank you Montlake Romance, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
