The Sixth Victim (A Constance Piper Mystery) by Tessa Harris
The Sixth Victim (A Constance Piper Mystery) - Tessa Harris

The Sixth Victim (A Constance Piper Mystery) by Tessa Harris is brilliantly written and a fast, mesmerizing book to read. I gave it five stars because this author made me feel as if I were on the foggy, frightening streets.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Kensington Books and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Land of Wolves: The Return of Lincoln's Bodyguard (Lincoln's Bodyguard Series) by Tj Turner is a historical fiction book that is riveting. I was surprised to learn how fast-moving it was. I gave it four stars.

The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias
The Devil's Prayer - Luke Gracias

The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias is a powerfully written book about the devil answering prayers. It has strong female characters that are intriguing. I was surprised that a book about a desperate nun's bargain kept my attention from start to finish.

 

There is disturbing violence but it contributes to the advancement of the story. Because it was a page-turner, I gave it five stars.

 

This book was well-researched and filled with esoteric information.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Australian eBook Publisher and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

The Fifth Petal by Brunonia Barry
The Fifth Petal: A Novel - Brunonia Barry

The Fifth Petal by Brunonia Barry is an intense, suspense-filled book with numerous twists and turns. It kept me guessing until near the end. I gave it five stars.

 

It has magic and mystery. It has tales of witchcraft and banshees and visions of blood. There are interwoven threads of ancestry and acrimony. John Rafferty is Salem's police chief who hopes to solve a cold case from 1989 where three women were killed. The main suspect is Rose Whelan, a former historian who is now mentally ill and homeless. She listens to trees.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Crown Publishing and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

This book is in pre-order status until January 24, 2017. I could not leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

The Return of the Raven Mocker (An Alafair Tucker Mystery) by Donis Casey
The Return of the Raven Mocker (Alafair Tucker Mysteries) - Donis Casey

The Return of the Raven Mocker (An Alafair Tucker Mystery) by Donis Casey is a compelling book. I gave it five stars because the characters came to life and kept my attention.

 

I fell in love with Alafair Tucker and her extended family. She lives in Boynton, Oklahoma but the stories could have been written about a western Louisiana small town like where I grew up. The children's jump rope rhymes really resonated with me. As did the story of the Raven Mocker and superstitious tales of that nature that were passed from generation to generation.

 

I had not read Donis Casey's books before and am thrilled to discover an established series. I added all of them to my wish list.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

This book is in pre-order status on Amazon and Barnes & Noble until January 3, 2017, so I could not leave a review there yet.
