Follow The Leader
Follow The Leader (A DS Allie Shenton Novel) - Mel Sherratt

A string of seemingly random murders shocks a little English town. Fridge Letters connect the victims. They also went to the same school, but that was over 25 years ago. Sure, that can not be the solution?

Follow the Leader is the second DS Allie Shenton book, but was my introduction to the series. I felt I could easily join in on this point, and had no problem following the different police officers around. The killer is known from the start but this doesn't mean there is no interesting chase. The pace was rather quick right from the start with a high body count. It was an easy and entertaining read but I missed something that made it stand out among all small-English-town-detectives. I mean, looking at all the books, it is terribly unsafe to go anywhere near small English towns since the murder rates are astonishing.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Good Characters and story
No Fear - Allie Harrison

Emma pulled with all ehr waning strength against her binds. She felt the terrot swirl at herself for being caught. Then Emma sensed she was no longer alone. The night had already been filled with so much horror she had seen unthinkable things and she had done as equally bad. She didn't look at him, wouldn’t let him see her terror. Then he said “ Hello Emma”. Emma had never heard a voice so smooth, as rich as the voice with which he spoke those two words. Still she worked not to dwell on that voice that compelled her to to turn and look into his eyes. He tried to convince Emma to look into his eyes and she refused. He told Emma he admired her strong will. He had admired her from a distance for awhile now. He said he knew how hard it was for her to do what she did to Mary Jenkins. He applauded her for it. Despite the fact he felt she owed him and what it would cost her. He had turned her friend Marcy. James was cloaked with the falling dusk. It had been five five years since she had felt a vampire close by. Emma had been attacked years ago. Emma, Gray had to make sure she was safe. Jilly was at the cemetery at night, standing before a stone- Amanda McComb beloved sister- the date of birth and death were carved in the stone. The death was one year ago today. It seemed like yesterday when Jilly sister Amanda had succumbed to that dreadful disease she had fought so hard to beat. A childhood  prank in a cemetery had left Jillian/Jilly scared for life. Now she was there to face her fear head on. Jilly talked as if Amanda was there and told her she had met a man. He also lives on the island so she wouldn’t have to travel to see him. He sent her roses at work. Graves started to open and bony grabbed her. Then they had her and told her they wanted her to stay there with them forever. James was the chief of police and at the cemetery where Jilly Had died. He thought getting out of Chicago and coming to Medusa Island hr would be able to end the evil he felt here before he had to see the dead bodies. James asked Duke what he had -Duke was the closest to a partner James had ever known. James had known Duke a long time.. James recognized Jilly, she had sold him his house. Duke said he didn’t know how she died, there was only some scratches on her cheeks and neck and Jilly looked terrified. James and Emma find a strong attraction between them when a storm isolates the island. But they have to face a dark killer who lives off the fear of others. Emma again became the target of a monster.

I enjoyed this this story. It keeps you reading to see what is going to happen next. It did drag for me at times but I did like the plot. I think this dwelled on James loving Emma a bit too much. I also thought there were just a few too many paranormal things in this- never thought I would say that. I think this is really more of a paranormal romance over being a mystery. As far as I am concerned this was definitely a unique vampire story. I did like James and Emma together when all was said and done. I did feel the ending was a little rushed. I did like the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

quote 2018-04-26 13:22
"Bisabuelo, at my age you were fighting in Europe and saving lives. I haven't saved anyone"
Allie, First at Last - Angela Cervantes

This quote comes from the book Allie, First at Last, and shows readers of the book how the main character, Allie, thinks of herself.

 

Allie comes from a family of very successful kids. Whether it be her well-rounded sister, or her soccer super-star brother someone her family is always winning something, except her. This really gets to her head and she decides to devote all her time to a volcano for the science fair at her school. After she makes it all she goes to present it, however someone puts slime in it causing her to not win. This upsets her a lot and this is where the quote comes from.

 

"Bisabuelo" is Allie's grandfather, and she admires him greatly. In the quote her grandfather is attempting to make er feel better after her loss of the science fair. However, Allie has a perception that her grandfather was doing so much at her age, even if he wasn't. This shows the reader that Allie thinks she is inferior to everyone (even if it isn't true).

 

This quote not only shows reader how Allie thinks of herself, but gives them a good life lesson. That life lesson is that not everyone is so amazing. Sometimes people think this and causes them to think so lowly of themselves, and when people think this low of themselves it makes it harder to achieve what their goals.

 

So take away this from my blog. Don't think of yourself so low. You can do anything if you think you can.

Breaking Away Series Box Set by Meli Raine
Finding Allie - Meli Raine
Keeping Allie - Meli Raine
Chasing Allie - Meli Raine
Breaking Away Series Boxed Set - Meli Ra... Breaking Away Series Boxed Set - Meli Raine

I usually like Meli Raine’s books. This set was the exception. I found it melodramatic and immature. A couple of places I thought the story would redeem itself but unfortunately the disappointment lasted throughout the whole set.  Let me just say this, if a drug lord had me in his sights, I believe I would look for help and not hang around until caught. Just saying.

My fav book!
Allie, First at Last - Angela Cervantes

I am a reader of sci-fi but I do like realistic fiction sometimes. I chose this book because it got good reviews. I have recently read call of the wild.

 

Allie, First at Last is my new favorite book!!

 

This book is about a girl who isn't talented but is in a talented family. So she feels ashamed because she never receives any trophies. This book doesn't connect with me because I am great at everything that I do. Do you connect with it? Have you read this book? Are you going to read it? Let me know! I highly suggest it
