Layton Green’s Newest Crime Thriller is Brilliant!


Written In Blood— Release Date 11/7/17.
Don’t Miss It. I Loved it!



Detective Joe “Preach” Everson, a prison chaplain turned police officer, is coming home. After a decade tracking down killers in Atlanta, and with a reputation as one of the finest homicide detectives in the city, his career derailed when he suffered a mental breakdown during the investigation of a serial killer who was targeting children.

No sooner does Preach arrive at home in Creekville, North Carolina–a bohemian community near Chapel Hill–than a local bookstore owner is brutally killed, the first murder in a decade. The only officer with homicide experience, Preach is assigned to the case and makes a shocking discovery: the bookstore owner has been murdered in exactly the same manner as the pawnbroker in Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment.

With the help of Ariana Hale, a law student and bibliophile who knew the victim, Preach investigates the local writer’s community. As their questions increase, a second body is found, this time eerily resembling the crime scene in a famous Edgar Allan Poe novella. Preach and Ariana realize that their adversary is an intelligent, literate killer with a mind as devious as it is disturbed–and that one or both of them may be his next target.


My Review


Written in Blood is a meticulously crafted perfectly paced crime thriller. The author’s ability to create lifelike characters and authentic crime scenes brought this story alive for me. Once I started reading this book, I was hooked, engrossed and addicted. Written In Blood is brilliant!

Murders were adding up in Creekville, North Carolina. The killer was recreating brutal murder scenes, from books, written by Dostoevsky, Poe and Agatha Christie. But why? Creekville was just a small town where nothing ever happened; at least it was.

Joe Everson aka Preach was once a top-notch detective, but a mental breakdown in Atlanta changed all of that. Preach returned home to Creekville and was hoping to slowly ease his way back into his law enforcement career. Detective Joe Everson, however, would not get his wish. Shortly after the detective returned to his hometown, Creekville had its first murder in a decade. And, since Preach was the only detective with homicide experience, ready or not, he would have to head the investigation. This was no ordinary killer they were looking for. The only connection Preach could find, along with his friend, Ari Hale, a bibliophile, was that each murder scene was precisely recreated from a horror book.

Preach was grateful for Ari Hale’s literary expertise and although he knew that the timing was wrong for a relationship, he could feel a mutual attraction between them, growing. Their relationship, however, no matter how secret they tried to keep it, was noticed, namely by the thugs gunning for Preach. And, the closer Preach and his partner Kirby came to nailing the mastermind, behind the killings, the more dangerous, life became for them, as well as for everyone Preach and Kirby loved and cared for.

Written In Blood is a multi-layered, superbly crafted, compelling thriller. It’s a riveting twisty tale of intrigue, greed, revenge, and self-discovery; with a dash of romance, mixed in. Layton Green is a talented writer. If you haven’t discovered this author’s work yet, I would highly recommend, Written In Blood. The book is extraordinary.

Many thanks to Layton Green, Prometheus Books, and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake-5 Stars! Book Review

scandoulous flirt:850.jpg

Don’t Miss Olivia Drake’s Fabulous New Historical Fiction, Filled With Love, Betrayal and Intrigue.

The Scandalous Flirt, Coming 10/31/17


The Scandalous Flirt is an enchanting and captivating historical fiction romance.

Miss Aurora Paxton, aka, Rory, was banished from London, and polite society, after being found in a compromising position with Stephano, an Italian Ambassador. Stephano had no intention of marrying Rory; because the Ambassador was already married. Rory, now a ruined woman, was sent to the country to live with her Aunt Bernice. Although, Rory loved her Aunt, and Norfolk’s country fresh air, she missed her former life as a Lady. She longed for London, its balls, theaters, and shops.

Years later, a highly respected woman from London’s polite society, Lady Milford, came to visit Rory, with a request. Apparently, Rory’s stepmother, Kitty, was being blackmailed and needed Rory’s help. Rory didn’t want to assist the woman, who had abandoned her, eight years ago, but Rory traveled to London anyway; wearing a pair of borrowed, jeweled slippers from Lady Milford.

Letters stolen from Kitty’s home were being used to blackmail her. The scoundrel knew, that if Kitty’s private letters were to become public, the scandal would ruin her, and affect her daughter’s upcoming marriage. Kitty was sure that the conniving evil-doer was the Marquess of Dashell, Lucas Vale. To have better access to the nobleman’s home, Kitty asked Rory to take a position as the Marquess’s disabled mother’s companion.

Never in Rory’s wildest dreams did she ever think that she’d one day be partnered with the Marquess to solve a mystery. But, there, Rory was, too close to the handsome nobleman, for her own good. She tried her best, to guard against falling for him, because a Marquess, would never be interested in a ruined, penniless woman. But, little did Rory know, that Lucas Vale, had always had a soft spot for her.

This book has it all, romance, love, betrayal and intrigue. The Scandalous Flirt is well-written, compelling, and delightfully entertaining. I loved it. This is the first book that I have read by Olivia Drake, but it won’t be my last.

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

The Scot Beds His Wife by Kerrigan Byrne–5 Stars–Book Review

A Scot Beds his wife:850.jpg


Don’t Miss, Kerrigan Byrne’s Newest, Historical Fiction Release, A Scot Beds His Wife! This Book is a Perfect Blend of Love, Romance and Danger. I loved it!


The Scot Beds His Wife is a captivating historical fiction romance. I was enthralled with the story and the characters right from the start. This is the fifth book that I have read, in the Victorian Rebel Series, and I loved it.

Samantha Masters is leaving Wyoming for good and starting a new life in the Highlands. She didn’t really want to shoot her outlaw husband between the eyes, but Samantha just couldn’t allow him to kill, another innocent person, in cold blood. Alison Ross was the young woman whose life had been spared by Samantha’s actions. Thankful to Samantha, Alison Ross offered her sanctuary in the Highlands. She had left Erradale, years ago, when she was thirteen-years-old, and never went back. Alison didn’t think that anyone would remember her. So Samantha agreed to take on Alison Ross’s identity and begin a new life in Scotland.

Samantha was sure that her brother-in-laws wouldn’t find her in the Highlands, but she planned to stay under the radar just in case. Keeping to herself, though, was proving to be a difficult task. Her neighbor, Lord Gavin St. James, was constantly in her face. He wanted to buy Erradale, and no matter how many times Samantha told him no, he’d come back and try to convince her again and again, just the same. He was a notorious rake, charming, and sinfully handsome. He was also incorrigible and infuriating, and Samantha found herself falling for him. Then, when she least expected it, Lord Gavin St. James, offered Samantha something that she just couldn’t refuse.

Samantha felt like a monster taking advantage of the very people she had come to care for. She thought that she would be strong enough to handle any fallout from the lies that she told. But, she was wrong, and she only had herself to blame for it.

I was completely engrossed in this perfectly paced historical fiction novel. The characters, dialogue, and situations are so meticulously crafted, that I was brought deep into the hearts and minds of Samantha Masters and Gavin St. James, and that’s where I stayed, until the end of the book. This novel is a thrilling blend of love, romance, and danger. It’s very much worth the read.

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

the stolen marriage::.....jpg

Don’t Miss This Unforgettable, Heartfelt Novel by Diane Chamberlain.

The Stolen Marriage-Coming 10/3/17


The Stolen Marriage is a captivating novel crafted with complex characters, compelling plot and realistic dialogue.

Tess Demello never thought that her one wild night out would change her life. But it did. She was supposed to be marrying Vincent Russo. That had always been the plan. However, that was before she met Henry Kraft, a businessman from Hickory, North Carolina. Tess’s mother, was beside herself when she heard, that Tess wasn’t marrying Vincent. Tess regretted that the last words, to her mother, were angry words.

Henry, the owner of Kraft Furniture, was a wealthy, well-known and respected man. He was also a private man with a lot of secrets. He cared for Tess, and although he was controlling, he never gave her reason to fear him. Henry treated Tess more like a friend, however than a husband. And she quickly found herself trapped in a loveless marriage. She wanted her old life back, but it was too late for that. Tess begged Henry for a divorce, but he wouldn’t hear of it.

The Stolen Marriage is a fascinating historical fiction novel. Diane Chamberlain transported me to another time and place, where I stayed, captivated, until the end of the book. I will definitely be reading more from this talented author. Highly recommended.

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