Review:

R. A. Douthitt’s last novel, The Children of Manor House, in the series is superb. I loved it! Her writing is the best. I found myself pulled into the book. The characters once more were beyond just interesting. I was intrigued. Readers will find humor, ghosts, and danger inside…the danger meter has upped since the last book. Mickey and his friends must s get rid of the evil ghosts forever or else risk others getting hurt again. Lexie, Mickey’s girlfriend and best friend, was taken hostage last time. 

Now, his family is being threatened by past murderers who have died and are now haunting his hometown. Then, there’s the group of mean boy ghosts who take fun in harming people. In order to get rid them, Mickey and his friends will need to get the truth of what happened to Annabelle and others inside of the Manor she calls home. Annabelle is a new ghost readers will meet in this series. Her evil ghost sister along with the other evil ghosts are tormenting her and Mickey. Only time will tell if Mickey and his friends will solve the case once and for all. Overall, I enjoyed reading this new title by R. A. Douthitt. Her writing has a way of coming to life. The Children of Manor House is one thacan be read by children and adults. I highly recommend it to all.

Review: A Pawn for Malice


Synopsis:

Does an ex-cop ever lose his “nose” for investigating? Freshmen Senator, Bryon Gallagher, certainly hasn’t, when the love of his life, Jessica, is kidnapped by a mad man. No stone is left unturned, as he plays the role of senator by day and rogue detective by night, calling in favors and working his past snitches to the bone to find her. The only problem is, who does he focus his efforts on … her deranged, former father-in-law who lusts after her, a crazed felon hell-bent on revenging the execution of his brother put to death under the Senator’s newly passed Death Penalty Bill, or an unknown psycho, looking for his “moment of fame”? 

A Pawn for Malice is a thrilling, passionate, and suspenseful romance that entails self-discovery, survival and a love, that is so strong, it conquers the evil trappings of a criminal mind. 

Rating: 4.5 stars 

Review:

A Pawn for Malice by Cynthia Roberts is a thrilling dark tale. It caught my attention from the start. The main character, Jessica, has just gotten out of a bad situation…only to leave a place behind for a new start. Safety. But even then, she’s not safe. Her father-in-law threatens her before she left. She leaves for a job with man who lures her in like a magnet. Sexy, hot, and a powerful man…Bryan is. With his prior skills and knowledge I was a goner. As soon as Jessica is safe, her life once more plunges into danger. The intrigue and suspense builds into overdrive. Jessica is a strong female character. She doesn’t let anyone take advantage of her if she can help it. Her feelings towards Bryan, a senator, grows each time. His attraction towards seems to be just as strong. One man willing to use everything he has to get his woman back safe. 

Cynthia Roberts has created a stunning piece. A Pawn for Malice suits the story well. As the characters fit right into it. A chase after many frightening suspects and time racing against him.  Bryan has to find Jessica before it’s too late. Romance, suspense, and danger all rolled into one perfect read. The mystery of who kidnapped Jessica is a powerful lure. I had to know who and why. The writer has skills in creating a novel that entertains as well as sending chills down reader’s spines. Interesting characters both bad and good…plus, a crime fiction plot. I enjoyed reading this novel. I will definitely be looking for more of Cynthia Roberts novels in the future. 

Review: Girl in Pieces


Synopsis:

Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people do in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.

A deeply moving portrait of a girl in a world that owes her nothing, and has taken so much, and the journey she undergoes to put herself back together. Kathleen Glasgow’s debut is heartbreakingly real and unflinchingly honest. It’s a story you won’t be able to look away from.

Rating: 4.5-stars

Review:

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow is a phenomenal read. She has taken readers into a portion of humanity’s darkest moments to show what some go through in life. These kind of reads are frightening. Because they show what could and does happen to others. The greatest conflict ever is pain. Pain is the pressure life puts upon us. Here, we see what a young teenage girl has to take. Life pulled the rug from under feet more times then I or the character herself would like. Pain is that numbing sensation that eats at our souls until we can’t feel anymore. Kathleen Glasgow depicts a realtor protrait of suffering and survival. Emotional and physical pain. Life isn’t pretty nor easy. It’s a constant battle against our demons and the bad that comes our way.

Girl in Pieces is is deep. Keeps readers turning the pages. I found myself lost within Charlotte’s life. I was placed immediately into her shoes. I cried so hard. The frustrations and anger came off the pages until life situations took that away. Then, there was nothing. Yet, in that moment pain was at the core. Women everywhere think they have it hardest and that no one else knows…this read shows that not everyone has it well. Even thought it’s fiction the tale was so believable, I could have sworn it was nonfiction. Heart wrenching, beautifully told, and well-developed. Kathleen Glasgow has brought a masterpiece into the world.

Review:

Pain-Killer by Kindra Sowder is out of this world. A talented new writer who leaves readers hanging onto every one of her words. Once the book is opened, readers are led into a fast-paced, dark yet edgy world. Horror, blood, and nightmares. The action is plentiful and it seems the pages go by faster than readers think. This novella is part two of the Miss Hyde series. A young sexy woman who has both a good and a bad side. The bad side is one that men never come back to talk about…relationships no matter what kind are scary enough. Imagine dating someone or having a one night stand only then to be drugged, chained up, and murdered by a psychopath. Will the terror ever stop or will the killing continue to climb higher yet? Kindra Sowder’s writing is once more superb as always. I was immediately taken in by her leading female character. I highly recommend reading Pain-Killer during daylight hours. This tale will leave shivers down readers’ spines and a chill that doesn’t disappear. Overall, this is a must read for all.

Review:

Darkview Psychosis by R.J Bathgate and M.J. Hall is one of the darkest and most traumatized novella I have ever read. It’s one dark ride after another one. A sadness unlike anything I have experienced is brought forth from the words on every page. A misery of hell that appears to be a nightmare or is it? Readers will be stuck in suspense and intrigue even after the ending. Wow…explosive, edgy, and full of danger. Loss, love, and craziness that leaves more questions than answers. Both R.J. Bathgate and M.J. Hall have a raw talent for creating a thriller suspense that will blow readers away. From the beginning to end I was sucked into the fast-paced plot before me. If this is turned into a movie, I will forever have the worst nightmares imagined…overall, I highly recommend this novella to all. Definitely, a must read.

Review:

The Lie by C. L. Taylor is brilliantly told. This novel reminds me of the famous TV program called Pretty Little Liars. Both have a deep and haunting past that comes back to scare them in the present. Another similarity between the two is that the group of friends may look like they are super close to another but in reality they are much further than that think. Friends should know everything about each other…yet there are secrets that have been kept and someone knows. As with my favorite drama and suspenseful program, this too brings out a dark psychological tale that swallowed me whole. I never knew what to expect. The talented writer kept me guessing with every page. The Lie is indeed a perfect title for this stunning story. Readers will be captivated by the danger, drama, and the unknown factors that kept me on the edge of my seat. Dark, intense, and superb. I loved reading this fast-paced plot that kept switching between the past and present…exactly like my favorite show. C.L. Taylor’s novel, The Lie, has now become my new favorite read.

Review: All Is Not Forgotten

 

Synopsis:

It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.

Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months, that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.

As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

As they seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker is a deep thought provoking thriller that enticed me from the start. The description leading into the main characters washed over me…making it feel like I was actually there. Wendy Walker took me through a young woman’s rape situation…it was horrifyingly real. The way the perpetrator knew how to go about not leaving behind any evidence…was a nightmare from hell. Thinking about this led me to what’s happening in our world today…many women and men are being raped. Imagine how many perpetrators get away with the crime and are never punished…it ruins the family and the victims’ lives forever.

Inside All Is Not Forgotten, Jenny Kramer, the main character goes through one such situation. She goes to a party and is later raped then found. She can’t remember anything until closer to the ending…where the story of who done it and why falls together. Until I reached the ending, I was intrigued by the intense plot. It kept me guessing all the hows, whys, and whos. Jenny’s experience and the emotional journey that she and her family went through is a ride I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemies. The danger of not knowing who did the things that happened to you…is scary. It could have been anyone and Jenny wouldn’t have realized it until she could finally remember and let go of that moment. I definitely agree that this is one well-written thriller that will never be forgotten by all who read it. It certainly left an impact upon me. Overall, I would highly recommend this stunning tale to readers worldwide. All Is Not Forgotten is a tale for everyone everywhere.

 

Review: Rx (Dawn of the Hybrids)

 

Synopsis:

The year is 2058. The condition known as RX is about to play a major role in deciding the fate of humanity.

This new condition, which is a combination of nearly every genetic, autoimmune, and neurological disorder ever known, has been detected in over one-third of the population. People are dying at an alarming rate, so everyone is scrambling to try to find a cure.

Meanwhile, traces of a precious new resource have been discovered deep in the heart of the planet, and nearly every country is taking part in the race that could sway the balance of power in their favor. So, with mining operations near the earth’s core at an all-time high, the planet’s health is being ignored. This will eventually prove to be costly.

When the day finally arrives to test the new Rx medication, the earth has a different plan. A series of natural disasters tear through the entire planet and leave only death and ruin in its wake.

Those who survive the storms are left in a cold, dark wasteland of a planet and now they must adapt and evolve to survive. They soon realize that their bodies are going through changes, as a result of a chemical imbalance. Eventually, the changes take form, and they come to be known as “Human Hybrids”.

Unfortunately, the activity at the core inadvertently disturbed a race of dormant flesh-eating savages who have made their way up to the surface to try to take over the world. Now it’s up to the Hybrids to save what’s left of humanity and drive them back from whence they came.

A test for survival…with all of the dangers that occur to the human race it’s no wonder that readers’ hearts will go into overdrive or that their palms will sweat with fear.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Scar Tissue by M. C. Domovitch is a thriller that kept me wide awake and on the edge of my seat. The terror of running away from the danger in the beginning to waking up from a coma and not remembering a thing…only to know that the killer is still out there and may come after her. Ciara Kelly was a beautiful model until someone went after her. Terrible words like whore and slut carved into her skin…as well as other beatings. The intensity and fear of what happened and what’s to come to Ciara yet…kept me turning the pages quickly. Fast-paced and brilliantly well-written tale that keeps readers in suspense thinking who could really be the killer. There’s a whole family, who have a motive for hurting Ciara…especially since she’s a model and dating one of the son’s. Of course, her career isn’t morally acceptable for his family inheritance…

Scar Tissue is exactly as it sounds…a young woman is scarred both inside and out with all of the fear, running, and almost death experiences. It’s no wonder she’s on the run. After her sister is mistakenly killed, Ciara knows that the killer won’t stop until he has her dead. What she doesn’t know is that a dead man is alive and a serious maniac. One who is known as the cutter. Then there’s a person everyone should be able to trust who planned for her death with the serial killer. Money in millions does a lot to people…some go crazy enough to commit murder after murder…M. C. Domivitch is indeed a talented writer whose words pulled me deep inside this dark, frightening, and suspenseful thriller. I didn’t know who the serial killer was nor who his partner was until the very ending. Ciara is one lucky woman so they say…but will she be lucky enough to escape alive for the last time? Overall, I absolutely loved reading this exciting and masterfully woven piece. I highly recommend it to readers everywhere.

Onyx Webb Series (Book 5) by both Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz continues to have it all. Suspense, intrigue, and murder as well as romance, ghosts, and revenge…are all inside each and every book. I have fallen in love with the Onyx Webb Series. It’s addictive.

There are a serial killer…tons of money involved, and a whole lot of drama that kept me deeply lured on every page. The plot as always is fast-paced and full of action. Never a dull moment inside this series. The characters are always doing something that releases a chain of events that affect others in the tale. Greed, love, and an emotional journey that has once again blown me away. Both Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz are the best writers when it comes to hooking readers’ attention and entertaining them throughout every page as well as every book.

Review: The Stopped Heart

 

Synopsis:

Internationally bestselling author Julie Myerson’s beautifully written, yet deeply chilling, novel of psychological suspense explores the tragedies—past and present—haunting a picturesque country cottage.

Mary Coles and her husband, Graham, have just moved to a cottage on the edge of a small village. The house hasn’t been lived in for years, but they are drawn to its original features and surprisingly large garden, which stretches down into a beautiful apple orchard. It’s idyllic, remote, picturesque: exactly what they need to put the horror of the past behind them.

One hundred and fifty years earlier, a huge oak tree was felled in front of the cottage during a raging storm. Beneath it lies a young man with a shock of red hair, presumed dead—surely no one could survive such an accident. But the red-haired man is alive, and after a brief convalescence is taken in by the family living in the cottage and put to work in the fields. The children all love him, but the eldest daughter, Eliza, has her reservations. There’s something about the red-haired man that sits ill with her. A presence. An evil.

Back in the present, weeks after moving to the cottage and still drowning beneath, the weight of insurmountable grief, Mary Coles starts to sense there’s something in the house. Children’s whispers, footsteps from above, half-caught glimpses of figures in the garden. A young man with a shock of red hair wandering through the orchard.

Has Mary’s grief turned to madness? Or have the events that took place so long ago finally come back to haunt her…?

Review:

The Stopped Heart is just as frightening as Edgar Allen Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart. Scary, suspenseful and the most intriguing novel yet. This new thriller by Julie Myerson is incredible.

Her words grab readers and pull them in fast to the action at hand. Readers will never know what to expect as Julie Myerson takes them back and forth from the past and present. Terrifying events that seem to haunt one family in particular. Julie Myerson’s novel is definitely a must read for all.

Julie Myerson takes readers on a roller-coaster ride that seems to repeat itself from 150 years ago. The Stopped Heart takes readers to the first event that will send chills down readers spines and set their hair on end. When a dog who is friendly to all except to a stranger who looks like he just came from hell himself…that usually means to get away as far as possible…the children understood but the parents didn’t. Now readers are taken back to the present where Mary goes back to a home that gives her the creeps. Hearing people call her name makes her jumpy…the home is one that she and her husband are trying to make their own…yet something about it gives Mary the nightmares. Readers will keep turning the pages in a race to find out what happened then and what is happening now. Will the nightmares ever end or will it keep on happening? The Stopped Heart is a thriller that will bring readers goosebumps every time. Julie Myerson’s stunning title will be addictive and heart stopping. Overall, I highly recommend this read to everyone.

Synopsis:

A twisted young medical student kidnaps the girl of his dreams and embarks on a dark and delirious road trip across Brazil in the English-language debut of Brazil’s most celebrated young crime writer.

Teo Avelar is a loner. He lives with his paraplegic mother and her dog in Rio de Janeiro, he doesn’t have many friends, and the only time he feels honest human emotion is in the presence of his medical school cadaver—that is, until he meets Clarice. She’s almost his exact opposite: exotic, spontaneous, unafraid to speak her mind. An aspiring screenwriter, she’s working on a screenplay called Perfect Days about three friends who go on a road trip across Brazil in search of romance. Teo is obsessed.

He begins to stalk her, first following her to her university, then to her home, and when she ultimately rejects him, he kidnaps her and they embark upon their very own twisted odyssey across Brazil, tracing the same route outlined in her screenplay. Through it all, Teo is certain that time is all he needs to prove to Clarice that they are made for each other, that time is all he needs to make her fall in love with him. But as the journey progresses, he digs himself deeper and deeper into a pit that he can’t get out of, stopping at nothing to ensure that no one gets in the way of their life together. Both tense and lurid, and brimming with suspense from the very first page, Perfect Days is a psychological thriller in the vein of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley—a chilling journey in the passenger seat with a psychopath, and the English language debut of one of Brazil’s most deliciously dark young writers.

Synopsis:

For fans of Coraline and A Series of Unfortunate Events

“A very gripping and haunting tale.”–Molly’s Book Nook

If you’re looking for a great story to read with the lights on this is the one for you.”– The Book Whisperers        

“What is this place?” Hadley asked, looking around the dark paneled entryway.

“This is our home,” Aunt Charmaine said. “Welcome to Grimm House.”

When Hadley’s parents leave on a cruise and then are reported lost at sea, her perfect world is turned upside down. In a flash she is whisked away to a new life of drudgery at Grimm House where she waits on not one but two persnickety old aunts. As she grudgingly fulfills their commands of cooking, cleaning, and even after-dinner-dancing, she comes to suspect the aunts are really witches who are scheming to take the thing she loves best.

With only her wits and the help of some unlikely new friends, Hadley makes a plan to escape Grimm House and find her way home before it’s too late.

For ages 7 – 11, or those who are young at heart.

The Grimm House by Karen McQuestion is masterfully written in a way that will automatically send readers deep inside the book. I highly recommend this phenomenal story to readers worldwide. It doesn’t matter what your age is…this novel will blow readers away with it’s mysterious plot and the suspense of what happens next…

The danger is real and there are two crazy mean aunts and one little girl. This is definitely for fans of The Series of Unfortunate Events as well as Goosebumps. Eerie, dark, and brilliantly wrapped up for readers entertainment is Grimm House. For those who remember James and the Giant Peach, this story starts out similar to that but with a more haunting theme that leaves readers sweating with fear…

Karen McQuestion has written this novel with many themes in mind. Love, courage, and friendship are just a few of these. Once you read this book, you won’t want to put it down. A young who is left with her two aunts is stuck to a life of hardship and mistreatment. She happens find friends in an unusal way…I absolutely loved this thrilling adventure. Overall, I highl recommend the Grimm House to readers worldwide. I can’t wait to see what Karen McQuestion comes up with next!
