A Kidnapping & A Conspiracy – 3 Lies by Helen Hanson @HelenHanson
3 Lies - Helen Hanson

Creepy cover for 3 Lies by Helen Handson, don’t you think? How would you like to run into him in a dark alley?

 

Cover:  Domino Ink

 

3 Lies (Masters CIA Thriller, #1)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

 

MY REVIEW

 

Clint noticed the old van because it sounded like a sports car. He is on his way to Beth’s house.Beth is the love of his love. When he get there, she is nowhere to be seen. Where is she? Who has her? Do they know she does her own dialysis? Would they even care?

 

She has been kidnapped, ransomed for money.

 

An unrecognized code brought an alert to the CIA. No one could imagine how bad it was.

WTF is going on? And who’s behind it?

 

As Clint goes about his business, not knowing what to think of Beth’s absence, I want to scream and yell at him. What are you doing going fishing? CHECK IT OUT!

 

Helen Hanson has located this fabulous thriller on the coast of Massachusetts. I love when I am familiar with a story’s location. Adds that little bit of reality to the fiction. And I do love a good conspiracy, with Helen supplied in spades. Then add the dialysis Beth requires which makes the characters ring true. Wonderful job on 3 Lies Helen and I look forward to finishing the series.

Mad Scientists Run AMOK – Ashlynn’s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert @authorgilbert
Ashlynn's Dreams (Devya's Children Book 1) - Julie Gilbert

 

 

This is another one of those late reviews, but that is not to say I didn’t enjoy Ashlynn’s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert. Sometimes books just get lost….somewhere…

 

Ashlynn's Dreams (Devya's Children, #1)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Jillian is twelve years old, a precocious twelve year old. She is intelligent, opinionated, a little full of herself with a BIG personality. She is filled with southern charm that people could not resist. She also has a lot of courage and she is going to need it.

 

Danielle, her babysitter, has great respect for her and wants only the best for her.

 

Jillian is kidnapped, along with her babysitter and finds out she has a brother.

 

Scientists and secret experiments that raises all kinds of questions. Even though Ashlynne’s Dreams is fiction, some reality bleeds through. And, as usual, my anger rises to the surface. Who died and allowed them to play God?

 

The science fiction and psychic blend together seamlessly.

 

When Ashlynn enters Varick’s dream, I couldn’t help but laugh at the battle and her ability to change it. The humorous writing will appeal to young and old alike.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Ashlynn;s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert.

She’s More Than Meets The Eye – The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson @peterswanson3
The Kind Worth Killing - Peter Swanson

 

 

This is another overdue review and I loved The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson, so I don’t know why it took me so long to share it with you.

 

Thanks to Peter Swanson and William Morrow.

 

The Kind Worth Killing

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

On a plane from London to Boston, Ted and Lily meet. Does this sounds familiar? Even so, Peter Swanson gives it his own special twist that kept me reading, cover to cover.

Ted’s a rich businessman and Lily works is a free spirit. But you don’t want to cross her.

They begin a game of truth and it gets way out of hand. Just the kind of games I love reading about.

 

The circle of treachery went round and round, piece by piece. Things didn’t go as planned, but do they ever? The betrayals and vengeance was shared by all.

 

I knew what would happen…sorta…

 

Playing judge, jury and executioner can bring bad Karma to you.

 

The pacing of the mystery kept me reading, unable to put the book down. It plays with my head as I try to keep everything straight and figure out who’s going to do what to who. Do they really think they’ll get away with it? Will they get away with it? Who is they? Can a bad person be good? LOL Full circle.

 

The writing is fantastic. I read the book cover to cover in one sitting. I didn’t find all the answers until the very last page. Way to go Peter!

An Exotic Island Filled With Horror – Child of Lies by Eric Kent Edstrom @ekedstrom
Child of Lies - Eric Kent Edstrom

 

 

The Scion Chronicles by Eric Kent Edstrom has been a wild ride so far and I am ready to dive into Child of Lies and travel to an exotic island that is filled with a horror you can’t imagine.

 

His books have blown my mind, so have a look and tell me what you think.

 

Child of Lies (The Scion Chronicles #2)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Jacey awoke…and remembered.
.

How would you feel if you were bred, raised, educated and trained only to have someone else’s mind taking over your body? They are clones. Sounds pretty freakin’ creepy to me! Unless you’re the other person. Old, decrepit, on your last leg, and death around the corner. A second chance at life.

 

Child of Lies raises many ethical and moral questions, not overlooking the legality of it all. Of course, it’s only for the rich, so you blue collar workers may as well forgeddaboutit.

 

Jacey was not going to let that happen. She felt responsible for everyone.

 

I loved how all the characters learned to overcome their differences and function as a team. Their knowledge grew, as did their personalities.

 

This ”what if’ story could very well give you nightmares. The tension and suspense made me want to look ahead, but I contained myself. No peeking.

 

I am so worried. More than once, Eric Kent Edstrom had me saying, “Oh no, no, no.” Leading me on , making me fear for them all, even the not very nice Belle. Maybe she will learn something and be the better for it.

 

Nature or nurture? Can your environment form who you are? Would a clone have a mind of its own? A personality of its own?

 

About two thirds of the way through Child of Lies I ran across a wonderful surprise and a ray of hope put a smile on my face.

 

Child of Lies by Eric Kent Edstrom picks up where Daughter of Nothing left off, so the series does not stand alone and each book should be read in order. It gripped me from beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down. Human nature and the worst circumstances show who we are and bring out the best or the worst in us.

 

To me this felt original, amazing and so creative and frightening that it stuck with me long after I finished reading. It runs the gamut that is good and bad about! humanity!

Prepare To Be Outraged – Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown @sandrabrown_NYT
Breath of Scandal - Sandra Brown

 

 

Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown is my latest addition of her work to my read shelf. She is an author that appeals to me on every level and I am happy to share this (late) review. I finished reading the book on 3.30.15 and, as much as I loved it, it’s hard to believe I have waited this long to share my review.

 

I would like to thank Net Galley and Grand Central Publishing.

 

Breath of Scandal

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

We have some young, hormonal boys out drinking, bored and looking for something to do. I see nothing good coming from it..and I hated to be right.

 

Noel is the sheriff’s kid and is a spoiled pig, a creep, and I think he will grow up to be a very bad man. He had the best of everything and thought Jade would fit right in. She sure didn’t and snubbed him. Jade’s mom thinks it’s a great idea,  but Jade has her eyes set on Gary.

 

I quickly figured out what is to come, but there was lots of anticipation and tension created while I waited for it. That is why I love Sandra Brown. Just because I know what’s coming, her writing makes for  page turning, white knuckled reading. The writing is so good, I smell the beer on his breath, feel the slime of the mud as we crawl through the car ruts and the cold swampy water as we huddle in the ditch, terrified.

 

I felt the fear before Jade did, because, as a reader, I know what is coming before she does. LOL I cringe as I think of it. I feel it is going to be so much worse than she can imagine….and I’m right. I am horrified!

 

I am so pissed off!!!! Breath of Scandal reads like a true story. I want to throw my Kindle at the wall I am so ticked off. I had to stop reading for a moment and catch my breath, get my emotions under control. AND, I am only at 15%. It is so hard to describe the emotions bubbling through my veins, racing through my mind, aghast at the abuse and misuse of power and the nonchalance of the characters involved, from the bad guy, the cop, her friend, and her own mother, probably the biggest betrayal of all.

 

Crowd mentality can cause people to take on newer and darker personality traits. The wealthy and powerful rule and think that laws were made for other people, not them. Is the one aiding and abetting as despicable as the actual villain?

 

I’m beginning to plot Jade’s revenge for her. I love her ability to pick herself up and go on.  I love her grit and determination.

 

The only downside was when Sandra Brown veered off topic to tell Dillon and Debra’s story, but there must be a reason????

 

Breath of Scandal by Sandra Brown had all my emotions raging. Dying would be too good for the evil characters, and believe me, they are evil. A death sentence would be too good for them.

 

I could rant on and on, but I think I have said enough. If you love your emotions running the gamut, disgusting villains, and a protagonist that will have their day, then you need to grab a copy now!
