The Girl on the Bridge: A McCabe and Savage Thriller (McCabe and Savage Thrillers Book 5) by James Hayman

Although this is the fifth book in the McCabe and Savage series by James Hayman, it is the first one I read. I was attracted to The Girl on the Bridge by the blurb. Let me say up front, this book is better than the blurb indicates. The prologue does an excellent job of developing the character of Hannah Reindel, the girl who apparently commits … Continue reading The Girl on the Bridge: A McCabe and Savage Thriller (McCabe and Savage Thrillers Book 5) by James Hayman

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.

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

“Feather on the Moon” by Phyllis A. Whitney

Beginning with a telephone call from a … Continue reading “Feather on the Moon” by Phyllis A. Whitney

“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

Moon Hunt: A People of Cahokia Novel

The third book in The Morning Star Series had me reading well past bedtime. Books one and two were gripping, but the events in this book are even more intense. From the Prologue when Morning Star admonishes Five Fists to not “execute her” after his death, my interest was piqued. I wondered who the “she” was who would achieve the Morning Star’s death.   Book … Continue reading Moon Hunt: A People of Cahokia Novel

“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

Hammered is no exception.  As soon as Talia and Dane meet, the reader will feel the electric sparks jump off the page. They have separate agendas, goals that are important to them. But those goals conflict like oil and water. Dane is the foreman of a … Continue reading Hammered: An Enemies to Lovers Romance (Hard n’ Dirty Book 5) by Alexis Alvarez

A Frequent Peal Of Bells: The Phoenix Series – Book 11 by Ted Tayler

  It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Ted Tayler’s Phoenix series. The eleventh book in this action-packed series, A Frequent Peal of Bells, continues the conflict with the criminal organization, The Grid, as well as additional terrorist attacks across Britain. Tayler maintains his skill at focusing on current events and weaving them into tightly knit fictional tales that mimic real life occurrences … Continue reading A Frequent Peal Of Bells: The Phoenix Series – Book 11 by Ted Tayler
