book synopsis

Galactus, France’s answer to SpaceX, has just launched a communications satellite into orbit, but the payload actually harbors a frightening weapon: a nuclear-triggered electromagnetic pulse.

 

When the satellite is in position, Galactus’s second-in-command, Dr. Nevaeh Patel, will have the power to lay waste to the world with an EMP. A former astronaut, Patel believes she is following the directions of the Numen, aliens who saved her life when she space-walked outside the International Space Station. She is convinced that with the Holy Grail, just discovered by the owner of Galactus—eccentric treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard—she can be reunited with the Numen, change the world’s destiny, and become immortal with them.

 

The countdown has begun when Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are thrown into the pending disaster. They must stop the EMP that would wreak havoc on communication and electronic systems on Earth, resulting in chaos and anarchy.


My thoughts

rating: 4.5

Would I recommend this series: yes

Will I be reading any more of this series : yes

Would I read anything else by this author : yes

Would have given it 5 stars but it left some questions not answered , even though that happened it was a very good read, it pulled me into the story , made the story believe able, as well as the characters, in fact even though I give it a 4.5 rating , i would say that it is the best one so far of the the 2 I've read, and I will be picking up the rest of the series, in fact this series reminds me of my favorite series by James Rollins Sigma Force series in some ways, I do have to say that one of the character is just plain nuts , to the point that I would never be in a room with with her. With that said I would like to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.

Genre:Adult ( Women fiction)
Pages:430
Lake Union Publishing
Pub date: Mar 5,2019
Book synopsis 
From the bestselling author of Neighborly comes a twisty novel of psychological suspense about the lies three women tell to survive, and the ones they'd kill to keep hidden.

Everyone loves therapist Michael Baylor. He's handsome. He's respected. And he's provided a safe place for his female patients. Now he's dead, and a detective is casting a tight net for the murderer--because the good doctor may have done some very bad things with the women who trusted him. That's if their stories check out.

There's Lucinda, who struggled to process her childhood trauma even as she was falling in love with Dr. Baylor. Greer, an accomplished career woman who was torn by her sudden desire to have children, so she went to Dr. Baylor for help but may have gotten more than she bargained for. And then there's Flora, a beautiful former patient who'd been on intimate terms with the man she called Dr. Michael for two years. Some might even say she was obsessed with him.

Three women caught in a tangled web of lies and secrets. And each with a motive for murder. With so much at stake, can any of them be trusted to tell the truth?

How did I find out about this book : Frishawn ( WTF Are You Reading?) and Robin ( Robin Loves Reading)  
WOW what a read, its a non stop ride through the craziness that is and are the women that are the main characters in the book, couldn't stand them and instead of feeling sorry for them , I hated them for been easy and for felling for his lies and tricks , because Michael was a douchebag and a creep as well as a big fat liar who used women and then throw them away . And don't get me started on the women like i said there was nothing I liked about them and I couldn't feel sorry for them in any way . With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting read and review it exchange for my honest opinion .

Book synopsis

As the clock ticks down to the wedding day and more shocking secrets are revealed, the murderer zeros in on another one of the girls. Can the killer be stopped before there is another victim?

My thoughts:
rating:2
Would I recommend it ?no 
Would I read anything else by this author?I would give her a second try 
First off I do have to it its slow going and that it takes a while for it to build up, plus not  a single character was likable , and I do mean not a one, everyone had secrets that they wanted to keep, and their lies just kept building and building, but while the story is slowing and the characters are all dislikeable, it did keep my interest throughout the book, and made me want to know more of everybody dirty little secrets. In fact it was only the dark secrets that kept me reading it even though there at the every end you get the answers there still felt like something was missing . With that said I would like to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it , exchange for my honest opinion.

Perfect Crime
Perfect Crime - Helen Sarah Fields

Title: Perfect Crime
Author: Helen Fields
Genre:
Pages:
Series: D.I.Callanach #5
Book synopsis
Stephen Berry is about to jump off a bridge until suicide prevention counsellor Damien Maclure stops him.


One week later, Stephen Berry is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. But did he take his own life…or was he pushed?


A spate of murders sweeps across Edinburgh, and to make matters worse for DI Luc Callanach and DCI Ava Turner, the victims seem random and entirely unconnected.


With no clear method for how the killer chooses their victims, Callanach and Turner are under more pressure than ever to identify the killer before it’s too late. But as a separate murder case rears its head and places Callanach as the prime suspect, it seems like this killer might just be uncatchable

My thoughts
rating:5
Would I recommend this series: yes
Will I be reading anything else by this author: yes
This is the first time I've read anything by Helen Fields and I can say that I'm hooked and its all because of her character Lic Callanach and her style of writing , her story has a way of keeping you edge of your set and pulls you into the story  so much so that you just want to keep reading . Her characters come to life as does the places she's talking about , and even her bad guys seem alive and are ones you think you can trust but then they surprise you .  There are some warnings that you need to know about before you read this book its still a good one to read, especially how she deals with suicide, depression ,and other dark topics. And while this story is a little dark and twisted there is a  feel like there might be a romance that's going to happen . With that said I would like to think Netgalley for letting me reading it and review it exchange for my honest opinion.
