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.

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.

*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.

Brilliant New Release from Jayne Ann Krentz

When All The Girls Have Gone

Don’t Miss it!

 

When All The Girls Have Gone is an exciting, perfectly paced, romantic suspense novel. I loved every page of this brilliantly crafted book and found it impossible to put down.

Madison Benson, the founder, and mastermind behind an exclusive investment club, carefully handpicked each of her four members. Every member was aware before joining her club that there would be a certain amount of risk involved. If a dangerous situation arose, though, every member, was assured, that they would receive the warning code, via email, in time for them to go into hiding.

When one of the members, Louise Flint was found dead, and another member rushed to the hospital; Jocelyn emailed the emergency code to Madison and Emily. Someone had discovered the true meaning of their club, and their lives were now in danger. Unfortunately, their little anonymous internet investment game had turned deadly.

Charlotte Sawyer was shocked to hear that her step-sister’s best friend Louise was dead. She was equally unnerved when Max Cutler, a private investigator, informed her that her stepsister, Jocelyn was missing. Charlotte and Max teamed up to unravel the mystery of Louise’s death and Jocelyn’s disappearance. As the two worked together, missing pieces and deaths started to pile up, along with their attraction and emotional bond to each other.

This novel had so many twists and turns and layers that it kept me guessing until the end. When All The Girls Have Gone is meticulously crafted and highly entertaining. I loved it!

Many thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my complimentary advanced review copy.

*While You Were Sleeping* by Kathryn Croft*5-Stars*

Check out Kathryn Croft’s Newest Riveting Release

while-you-were-sleeping

While You Were Sleeping is a riveting psychological crime thriller. The book captured my attention from the very beginning and kept it until the end.

Tara was shocked when she woke up naked, alongside her neighbor. She had no recollection of climbing into his bed. How could she have done this to her husband? Her neighbor, Lee, was just a friend, a dead friend now, by the looks of his bloodied body, and vacant stare. Tara knew that her responsibility was to call the police, but she was petrified of the consequences. Feeling herself becoming hysterical, Tara threw on her clothes and ran from the house.

Although Tara couldn’t remember anything beyond drinking wine and laughing in her neighbor’s living room, she knew that she couldn’t have killed Lee. Lee was her best friend’s husband. Why would she murder someone she liked? Besides, she didn’t have even a spot of blood on her. But, if Tara didn’t stab Lee to death, then who did? Was the killer watching her now? And why did he spare her, her life?

The author kept me engrossed by leading me through mazes of clues, lies, and half-truths. This cleverly written whodunit murder mystery is so intricate, and well-plotted, that I had no idea who the killer was, until the very end. Since the novel is told from Tara’s point of view, I felt Tara’s guilt, confusion, and paralyzing fear. I found While You Were Sleeping to be suspenseful, absorbing and utterly entertaining. I loved it.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
