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.

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.

One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline

One Perfect Lie

Don’t Miss Lisa Scottoline’s Newest Release.

One Perfect Lie– Impossible To Put Down! One Perfect Lie is a gripping, perfectly paced and cleverly written thriller. I loved every page of this captivating book.

A suspected terrorist bombing was about to go down in Pennsylvania. And, ATF Special Agent Curt Abbot knew that he had only a week to prevent it. His gut was telling him that Central Valley High School was involved and playing a key role in the attack.

Everyone fell in love with, Chris Brennan, the new assistant coach, and teacher at Central Valley High School. He was handsome, charismatic, and knew just how to spin a tale to make everyone believe his lies. Chris studied people so he could manipulate and exploit them. To Chris, people were just a means to an end. That was, until, he met the good folks, in his new small Pennsylvania town. Unlike him, they were genuine. He hated to deceive them. What a terrible time to grow a conscience.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading One Perfect Lie and highly recommend giving it a read.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

* Gone* by Elisabeth Naughton 5-Stars!

 

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.

*Everything You Want Me To Be* by Mindy Mejia-5-stars*

everything-you-want

 

Everything You Want Me To Be is a meticulously crafted, unputdownable, crime thriller.

Hattie Hoffman was seventeen, beautiful, talented, and driven. She set a goal to become a famous Broadway actress and was determined to achieve it. Everyone said that Hattie was a natural. She should be; she practiced her acting skills every day, on the people around her. They had no idea of that, though, but they were helping her to become a better actress, just the same. Unlike her classmates, Hattie was not interested in going to college right away. She was heading for New York City, as soon as school ended. She couldn’t wait for the school year to be over, until Peter Lund, the new English teacher walked in.

Peter Lund was the man she had flirted with at CVS, but he would become much more than just a friendly acquaintance to her. She didn’t know that at the time, though. She also didn’t know that her life would end that year.

This is the first book that I’ve read by this author, but it will not be my last. The writing is superb, with fully developed characters and realistic dialogue. Although this perfectly paced book is told from three different points of view, I didn’t find it confusing at all. I loved it.

Many thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy of Everything You Want Me To Be.

*The Twilight Wife* by A.J. Banner

 

The Twilight Wife..jpg

Don’t Miss A.J. Banner’s Newest Release!

It’s Intense, Riveting and Cleverly Written

The Twilight Wife is an intense and riveting psychological thriller.

Kyra Winthrop suffered from amnesia after hitting her head in a diving accident. She could only remember bits and pieces of the last four years of her life. And, since she had only been married for three years, most of her married life was a blank slate. Kyra was fortunate that she at least remembered Jacob, her husband, enough to feel comfortable around him; but not enough; however, to share a bedroom. Jacob had patience, though, and created for Kyra the perfect place for her to relax and regain her memories.

Jacob brought Kyra to Mystic Island, his childhood vacation home. It was a place where everyone knew everyone else. Kyra had been there before, so people recognized and sympathized with her. They also helped her put some of the pieces of her past together. The flashes of memory that Kyra did recover, though, confused her, more than comforted her. It troubled Kyra that she had glimpses of being with another man, possibly Jacob’s best friend. From what she gathered from the Islander’s conversations, her marriage was less than ideal. Although Jacob appeared to be the perfect husband, there was something that she couldn’t quite identify that was dark and foreboding about him. And that troubled her.

The Twilight Wife is cleverly crafted, filled with suspense and intrigue, complex characters and realistic dialogue.

This is the first book that I have read by this author, but it will not be my last. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my advanced review copy.
