“Eye Of The Fire” (Coffee Cup Pulps Book 1) By Adam C. Mitchell

I love a good noir thriller and I’ve read several of author Adam C. Mitchell’s, so I was eager to see how he handled this action adventure. Set in the jungle Eye of the Fire is the first in his Coffee Cup Pulps. Once again Mitchell takes hold of a genre and runs with it.             Mike and his wife Samantha fly to the jungle … Continue reading “Eye Of The Fire” (Coffee Cup Pulps Book 1) By Adam C. Mitchell

Captive Love: A story of love, obsession and possession (Friends, Family and Love Book 1) by Joni Martins

The premise of Captive Love by Joni Martins is terrifying. Martins begins the book with the frightening experience of the main character, Lydia, waking up in a strange place with no memory of how she got there. Finding herself bound hand and foot, she struggles to put together the pieces of her recent past. Her first instinct is to attempt to undo the ropes that … Continue reading Captive Love: A story of love, obsession and possession (Friends, Family and Love Book 1) by Joni Martins

“Frozen Stiff” (A Chase Adams FBI Thriller Book 1) by Patrick Logan

When I see a book that has a female FBI agent as its chief protagonist I can’t resist. The blurb describing Frozen Stiff is intriguing. Although I never heard of author Patrick Logan, I decided to give it a try. Touted as a “female sleuth” and “police procedural” story I looked forward to a compelling read. The prologue was good. It showed grit and the promise … Continue reading “Frozen Stiff” (A Chase Adams FBI Thriller Book 1) by Patrick Logan

Silent Caller (Warfield’s Landing Book 1) by Adeara Allyne

“Nic has a phone stalker AND a new guy in her life. The good cancels out the bad… Right?” I’m always up for a romantic suspense book, especially from an author I haven’t previously read. The title of this book and the brief blurb sounded interesting. Unfortunately, the story was a disappointment.             Silent Caller by Adeara Allyne had the potential to be a solid … Continue reading Silent Caller (Warfield’s Landing Book 1) by Adeara Allyne

“He Will Find You: A nail-biting and emotional psychological suspense for 2018” by By Diane Jeffrey

As I have often said, I am not a fan of books with subtitles that tout the story within. It seems to have become a popular way to grab prospective readers’ attention. That being said, the blurb for He Will Find You was enticing enough to encourage me to give it a read.             Let me say from the beginning that author Diane Jeffrey does … Continue reading “He Will Find You: A nail-biting and emotional psychological suspense for 2018” by By Diane Jeffrey

“Tell No One: A Novel” by Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben is easily one of my favorite mystery writers. He has a knack for building suspense from the beginning of his books and building the tension until it’s almost unbearable. Tell No One is a perfect example of this skill. From the first page, the reader knows something bad is going to happen. Even as Coben weaves a strand of romance through his introduction … Continue reading “Tell No One: A Novel” by Harlan Coben

“Feather on the Moon” by Phyllis A. Whitney

Intrigued by both the title and description of Feather on the Moon by Phyllis A. Whitney I added the book to my ‘must read’ collection. I’d read a few of the author’s books in the past and I enjoy her writing style.             Whitney wastes no time in getting the story of Jennifer Blake’s kidnapped daughter Debbie rolling. Beginning with a telephone call from a … Continue reading “Feather on the Moon” by Phyllis A. Whitney

“The Good Teacher” by Rachel Sargeant

The blurb for The Good Teacher by Rachel Sargeant teased me with the line, “A gripping thriller with a shocking twist.” I dove right into the book, hungry for the clues that would leave me trying to guess the twist. Sargeant starts off with the intriguing description of a woman handcuffed to a chair. This first paragraph is definitely a hook. Who is she and … Continue reading “The Good Teacher” by Rachel Sargeant

“The Secret Mother: A gripping psychological thriller that will have you hooked” by Shalini Boland

I usually avoid books with titles followed by a “hook”. However, after a peek inside, I decided to give The Secret Mother by Shalini Boland a try. It was a good choice.         Boland starts off with excellent descriptive paragraphs which set the tone for the tale. Told in the first person, (something I like), the story follows Tessa Markham as she … Continue reading “The Secret Mother: A gripping psychological thriller that will have you hooked” by Shalini Boland

“The Colorado Kid” by Stephen King

I’m Stephen King’s second biggest fan. Annie Wilkes holds that honor, sort of. That being said, I confess I have had “The Colorado Kid” both in paperback and on my Kindle for a long time. Usually, I cannot resist a new King book and plunge in as soon as I grab hold of one. It wasn’t until I started writing my own crime mysteries that … Continue reading “The Colorado Kid” by Stephen King
