Miami Homicide & The BAU Collaborate – On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold @Carolyn_Arnold
On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) - Carolyn Arnold

 

 

Carolyn Arnold is one of the best procedural novelists I have ever rad, so I was super excited to read On The Count of Three, the seventh novel in the Brandon Fisher FBI series.

 

Publisher:  Hibbert & Stiles Publishing

MY REVIEW

 

Carolyn Arnold’s attention to detail makes her writing so engrossing, riveting, that once I start, I am unable to stop reading until the last page is read.

 

When the Night called to him, he felt the need to find one who is worthy of his attention. I don’t want him focusing on me. He counts down, preparing to wreak havoc on his victim, “One, Two….saved by the bell, the ringing telephone.

 

Brandon, a special agent with the BAU woke to the ringing phone. His girlfriend Becky is a police officer so she knows the drill. Jack, Brandon, Zack and Paige are a team. But for how long?

I always wonder how long a person can last in such a stressful position as the BAU? When is it time to walk away? Do they all become jaded over time? Inured to the evil they deal with?

 

I wonder how and why the villain chose his gruesome method of murder. Serial killers have a reason for what they do, even if no one else can understand it.

 

I am looking forward to watching Brandon’s growth from a rookie to a seasoned agent. It takes time and training and I am a patient person.

 

I feel the agents pain as they arrive…just a little too late. It’s not all glamour, save the day action. The investigation is thorough and we go through it step by step, watching and learning. The tedium of questioning and more questioning and research. Criminal Minds is an awesome TV show that I watch religiously, but it cannot begin to cover…in realistic terms…what Carolyn Arnold covers in her novels.

 

We are all byproducts of our experiences. It’s what each person chooses to do with those experiences that comes to define them.

 

On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold ends in hope and eagerness to see tomorrow and the next day…

 

She writes some of the best procedural novels I have ever read

Drinking and driving may be deadly in more ways than one... 

When a woman’s disappearance ticks off all the same boxes as two unsolved murders, Miami homicide detective Kelly Marsh is convinced there’s about to be a third. If she’s right and the killer sticks to their previous MO, she only has three days before Jenna Kelter’s decapitated head will show up somewhere in the city. With no time to waste, Kelly reaches out to the one person she knows can help: her former mentor and family friend Jack Harper, who just happens to lead a team with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. 

BAU special agent and profiler Brandon Fisher easily sees the similarities between Detective Marsh’s missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for DUI vehicular homicide and disappeared three days after being released from prison. But is that enough to assume Kelter has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon’s not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn’t any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after Kelter was reported missing. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. He’ll need to move past it, though—and quickly.

After all, this killer has evaded capture for the past six years, and they may be looking at a lot more victims than originally suspected. This serial killer is calling the shots and pulling them into a macabre game of cat and mouse. While the team has no choice but to play, if they don’t make the right moves, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.

The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh by Carolyn Arnold (Matthew Connor Adventure Series Book 2)
The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh - Carolyn Arnold

If you enjoyed City of Gold then you are going absolutely love The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh.

 

Matthew Connor is back in a new action packed, edge of your seat, treasure hunting mystery. I delved right into this book and I couldn’t put it down, I have always loved Egyptian History and it is clear that Arnold has done her homework on it as well as she really made you feel like you were right there with Matthew and Co as they help out on a archaeological dig of a lifetime.

 

The fabled Emerald Tablets and the tomb of an unknown Pharaoh sees the dig site leader Alex get in touch with Matthew to convince him to come and join her team, Matthew has long been fascinated by the prospect of finding the Emerald Tables that he needs no persuasion and wrangles Cal and Robyn along for the ride – though they are both still recovering from there brush with death in the previous book – what could go wrong in this one right?

 

Once in Egypt they meet the others on the dig team and get to work, though there are members that will you dislike and feel they are up to something but you get so wrapped up in the danger and adventure that awaits them in the tomb that you forget why you dislike then until all hell breaks loose!

 

This really is an action packed adventure that will make you feel you are right in the midst of the the discoveries they make and the danger they get into. I was slightly miffed at the ending, not how it ended more Matthews decision on something (don’t want to spoil it) I can see why he chose to do what he did but still, to actually go through what they did they had to protect the world somehow…

 

Dont miss the chance to read this fantastic series from Carolyn Arnold.

Going Underground in Eleven by Carolyn Arnold @Carolyn_Arnold
Eleven - Carolyn Arnold

 

 

 

 

Carolyn Arnold is a prolific writer and I have been reading her work for a while now. Her thrillers are to die for and I am excited when I have another one of her books in my hand.

 

Eleven was FREE at the time of posting and if you are a thriller lover, this is a must read.

 

Publisher:  Hibbert & Stiles Publishing

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

First, I would grab this book because it was written by Carolyn Arnold. Second, I have been reading her work for a while now, and I now she won’t disappoint my, but she may blow my mind. Third, SHE DID!

 

Carolyn Arnold’s novels read like Criminal Minds episodes. I love how she breaks down the crimes and the criminals, taking us through the process, step by step, clue by clue. And this is one mystery that keeps on giving. I was super creeped out early and it never stopped. I wonder where Carolyn came up with the idea for Eleven. Is she smoking something?

 

Salt Lick. Kentucky. Underground. Creepaliciously gruesome and I feel chills running up and down my spine just writing this.

 

Eleven, the symbol of purity, but I sure don’t see it here.

 

Focus, analyze, and be objective is what is required and Brandon is thankful for the training that allowed him to do exactly that, especially in the current circumstances. This is Brandon’s first case with the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. His coworkers ride him, calling him Kid, Pending and Slingshot.

 

We watch Brandon grow and learn as he works under Jack, a Supervisory Special Agent. Danger strikes too close for comfort, but he slowly learns to keep control of his emotions, or he would be useless to the investigation. His first case, and it is a horrific one.

 

WOW…I am only at 28% and the story is so intense, I wonder how I will make it to the end. Do I cheat and peak? NO! Don’t do it. It would ruin everything. It is the anticipation, the awful, sickening journey that makes it all worthwhile. I will savor the threats and danger. I will crawl around underground with them…there go those shivers again.

 

There is so much more of the story to come, I can’t imagine what surprises are in store for me, but Carolyn’s ability to write with suspense and make her characters seem so real that at times I forget this isn’t a true story, is one journey I know I won’t regret..

 

The killer they are looking for is just out of reach. They will get there, but will it be in time? There is more than one life at stake.

 

Stories and scenes that happen underground really freak me out. I shivered and cringed my way to the end and loved every minute of it! If you love mystery, thrills and suspense of the highest caliber, this is a must read and Carolyn Arnold is an author you want to follow. I anticipate many more horrific stories to come. Bring it on, Carolyn!

“You have one great weakness.”

“You’re too positive.”

“You think we catch all the bad guys, that we can stop the evil in the world.”

“You believe in hope even when there is none.”

Book Review - The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh by Carolyn Arnold (Matthew Connor Adventure Series Book 2)
The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh - Carolyn Arnold

Another exciting adventure with our intrepid explorers who are desperate to find the Emerald tablets.  According to legend these tablets hold untold powers and in the wrong hands could lead to world devastation. The story line and brilliant descriptive writing brings the ancient world of Egypt to life. Egypt holds a fascination for the modern world and all the secrets and myths it holds and this is a novel which takes us on that journey to solve one of them.

On previous expeditions our group had to overcome personnel issues and put aside grievances to work together to achieve the overall goal. Their characters and their traits are expertly brought to life and with the past tensions on the previous expeditions, it adds emotions of love, jealousy and greed to the story.

Any reader who enjoys adventure stories which are full of excitement, danger, with a hint of a love triangle, will love this novel. In creating our explorer of ancient antiquities in Matthew Connor she has set a great rival for Indiana Jones. Look out for other novels by this author!
