One Sentence Review – Wings of Mayhem by Sue Coletta @SueColetta1
Wings of Mayhem (The Mayhem Series Book 1) - Sue Coletta

I have read several books by Sue Coletta and she gave me Wings of Mayhem just because. I love serial killers…well, books about serial killers….and Sue kept me enthralled in the first book of The Mayhem Series.

 

Let’s take a look, shall we?

 

Starting out with a fabulous cover by Elle Rossi of EJD Designs, is always a good sign.

 

Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

A cat burglar, a cop, and a serial killer meet up in this brutal tale of love, loss and revenge that held me spellbound until the end.

 

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 4 Stars
 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

Shawnee Daniels — cybercrimes specialist by day, cat burglar by night — ignites the hellfire fury of a serial killer when she unknowingly steals his trophy box.

A SERIAL KILLER STALKS THE STREETS…

Cat burglar Shawnee Daniels always believed her “fearlessness rules” mantra would keep her on top and out of jail. When she hacks a confiscated hard drive at the Revere P.D., she focuses on a white-collar criminal accused of embezzlement. To teach him a lesson and recoup the funds she breaks into his massive contemporary in Bear Clave Estates. Jack has even more secrets, deadly secrets, secrets worth killing over.

A CAT BURGLAR PICKS THE WRONG HOUSE TO ROB…

Shawnee thinks she made it out clean until a deadly package arrives at her door soon after. He’s found her. As a glowing eagle taunts her Skype screen, Jack tells her she stole his precious trophy box — and he wants it back!

THEIR LIVES COLLIDE…

When her “helpful” best friend convinces her to date charismatic Detective Levaughn Samuels, her two worlds threaten to implode. Ordinarily Shawnee keeps a firm line between her professions, but dating Levaughn might help her get this psycho off her tail.

AND NOW, NO ONE IS SAFE…

In this lightning-fast-paced psychological thriller of secrets and lies, Shawnee juggles being stalked by a serial killer, dating the lead detective on the case, and tap dancing around her librarian best friend.

If she doesn’t find the trophy box, the killer’s coming for her. If she doesn’t expose her secrets and lies, more will die. And if she does, she could lose her freedom and everyone she holds dear.

If you’re a fan of Lisa Jackson, Rachel Abbott, Karin Slaughter thrillers, crime fiction with an edge, or psychological thrillers, mystery, and suspense, then Wings of Mayhem is for you.

Praise for Sue Coletta’s novels…

“The heart-stopping descriptions are so jarringly real that there are several scenes I will never forget.” ~ Eliza Cross, Award Winning Author

“Sue Coletta isn’t going to spare you the gory details or an honest look behind the crime scene tape. She’s a well versed author in all things crime who indelicately dumps you into the middle of a life which has been disrupted, disturbed, and marred by the evil acts of a solitary man.” ~ Beaux Cooper, Author and Amazon Reviewer

“Sue Coletta’s writing style is bold. It’s riveting.”

A Puff of Silk by Kathleen Shoop A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series
A Puff of Silk (Bridal Shop Series Book 1) - Kathleen Shoop

A Puff of Silk by Kathleen Shoop
A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series
'Need to turn your wedding dress frown upside down? Call Amelia Pettipiece!'

Now available:
Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JQX82ST 
Paperback: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1720073635 

"This was a quick read - it's a novella so it's only 158 pages - a great intro to a new, fun series by Author Kathleen Shoop. She writes a heroine that is strong, determined, and independent; the kind of character that most of us women aspire to be like. This book focuses on the relationship between the heroine & her grandmother; I loved following these two as they reconnected after so long apart. Also, the author hints at a potential suitor for Amelia but it is not the forefront of the story. I can't wait to see what else comes to be for Amelia & Gram - and their boutique.." Reviews All Things Bookaholic

"I really loved this short novella, and I feel I am going to enjoy the rest of the books in this series. I loved Amelia and her Gram and how their little boutique brings them together again." reviews Ebook Addicts UK

"Is Amelia able to solve her money problems, will she be to save her Grandmother's shop and will she continue to design wedding gowns?" asks Miki's Hope "The first in the series and I am eagerly awaiting all the others!!"

New York City dress designer to the stars, Amelia Pettipiece, cleared a unique path to fashion-glory. With her career soaring, grand penthouse apartment on Central Park, and handsome boyfriend who supports her ambitions, Amelia could not have dreamed of a better life when she left Pittsburgh after college.

But when Amelia’s signature design, the famous FiFi Hererra’s, wedding dress, disintegrates off the bride’s body as she walks down the aisle, every thread of Amelia’s charmed life unravels.

Amelia’s Instaglam life turns into an Instaslam. She runs back home to her gram’s place in Eagle Bend, Pennsylvania to hide until she can figure out what happened to the dress and how to weave her tattered life back together.

Though Amelia finds comfort in staying with Gram, she begins to see that she’s neglected the woman who raised her. Pettipiece Boutique is falling apart and a slew of hunky hangers-on are showing interest in the riverfront property and in Amelia.

Just when Amelia is at her lowest, a customer with a unique problem arrives at the boutique, distracting Amelia from her crumbled life. Can she and Gram create the dress of a lifetime for a desperate bride? Can Amelia trust herself to send another bride down the aisle after the FiFi debacle? Does any of it really matter if Amelia’s already lost it all?

To Steal a Viking Bride
To Steal a Viking Bride (Norse Series Book 2.5) - Gina Conkle

A very short story originally meant for the author's newsletter subscribers, though now it's published on amazon w/KU. My copy was obtained via instafreebie when it was free.

I remember Gunner from the previous Norse series books, though not a whole lot if I'm honest. Even then I liked the story and wished it was a bit longer, maybe novella-length, giving a bit of the background on our H and the h's relationship. In any case, it can be read as a standalone.

I'm a big fan of Gina's Viking stories and still waiting for the next book in this series, though there's no release date of that yet. The blurb sounded very interesting to say the least.

Great Story and Characters
Bayou Bound (Fleur de Lis Series book 2) - Linda Joyce

Nick never thought he’d choose a date with a dog over a date with a hot looking woman . Capt Jack told Nick how he appreciated him coming out on a night like this. Nick said he had just been pulled from a date. Than Nick said Sugar the dog and new mom was a better date than the woman he had left at the Seafood Shak. Capt told Nick he needed a woman, that the right woman would give him the real warmth he needed. But the right woman hadn't showed up. Marriage required commitment. He refused to walk in the wake of his parents, poster children for a bad marriage. Nick was determined that wasn’t going to happen to him. Biloxi Noel Dutrey ended up in a water filled ditch, not the homecoming she had planned. She knew this road like the back of the hand, had traveled it hundreds of times. Now she had to ruin her clothes and get out and assess the damage. Than she went to open the door and a force on the the other side yanked. She held onto the door but it pulled her from the seat. She ended up on her back, feet still inside the car. A man asked if she was alright and  she said no. Strong hands grasped her under her arms and got her on her feet. Than he said “ Brana Lind?” “What are you doing out here?” But he had called her by her cousins name He offered to run her home in his truck but fear gripped her. Biloxi had worked too hard on her plan to give up on it now because of a minor setback. Home provided the security she craved and with Branna gone, it was her time to shine as number one. She had a mission. Biloxi felt Nick was a stubborn man just like Gregory. Men who liked to dominate. She had enough of them. Biloxi stumbled into a gaping hole.Than Nic again rescued her and taking her to the E R. Nick and Biloxi’s family have a long standing feud yet Nick and Biloxi are very attracted to each other. Nick would like to find someone, settle down, and start a family. Biloxi wants control as the keeper of the family to bring them into today’s world biloxi wants to save her family home.. Both Nick and Biloxi had been hurt by the past.Nick’s mom had left him when he was ten years old. Why, when he was an adult he hired the best to find her.  Biloxi knew she should avoid Nick but she can’t resist him or he her. Biloxi had a jet setting photography career but decides her family is more important and goes home. Nick was a vet. Will Nick and Biloxi get past their family’s differences?

I loved this book It was a sweet easy read. I loved the plot and pace. I advise you read the first book in this series for a smoother read. I loved Biloxi and Nick together and how they interacted together.  I loved Biloxi gave up her photography career to come home and try to help save her family home. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.
