“Toxic: An Electric EclecticBook” (Adult Edition) by Karina Kantas

I’ve read several Electric Eclectic Books and these novelettes have provided a vast array of genres and authors. They break the mold once again by presenting the same story in both an adult erotic version that’s steamy hot and a touching, romantic read. I decided to read the adult version first. Written by author Karina Kantas, Toxic is a no holds barred sensual exploration of passion … Continue reading “Toxic: An Electric EclecticBook” (Adult Edition) by Karina Kantas

The Chill of Night: A McCabe and Savage Thriller (McCabe and Savage Thrillers Book 2 By James Hayman

Once again James Hayman hooked me with the second book in the McCabe and Savage Thrillers series. Hayman’s ability to follow police procedures while developing characters that are so vibrant they seem to be friends, neighbors, and sometimes, people you want to avoid. The Chill of Night: A McCabe and Savage Thriller takes place in Portland, Maine during a bitterly cold winter around the Christmas … Continue reading The Chill of Night: A McCabe and Savage Thriller (McCabe and Savage Thrillers Book 2 By James Hayman

“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 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

“Operation Snowdrop” by Michelle Medhat

   I love a book with action and romance and Operation Snowdrop by Michelle Medhat more than fulfills what I look for. With a storyline that could be a current headline, Medhat leads her reader through a top-secret assignment. From the first page, I was drawn into this intense tale. Anti-terrorism agent Matthew Kinley of MI6, British Secret Intelligence, is part of a team that … Continue reading “Operation Snowdrop” by Michelle Medhat

“The Lost Angel” by Adam C. Mitchell

I’ve read some of Adam Mitchell’s short stories and was eager to read a longer length novella. The Lost Angel did not disappoint. Mitchell captures the flavor of 1940’s noir and distributes throughout the book, never losing a beat from start to finish. Eddie Kovakx is a down on his luck thief. One night he runs into an old adversary, Tony Santeeni, drunk and rowdy … Continue reading “The Lost Angel” by Adam C. Mitchell
