#SPOTLIGHT - One (Count to Ten #1) by Jane Blythe
One - Jane Blythe

Annabelle Englewood slaughters her family while they sleep. 

Or so it seems to Detective Xavier Montague when he and his partner arrive at her house to find her sleeping peacefully, her family all dead. 

But then another family and another are murdered, again with one family member left alive, and it becomes clear that Annabelle is simply a pawn in a vicious killer’s game. 

Intrigued by Annabelle, the first woman Xavier has been attracted to since his divorce, when he comes face to face with the killer he will be forced to make the ultimate choice, a life and death decision, that could let a psychotic murderer walk free.

Serial Killers Run Amok In The Count To Ten series by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor
One (Count to Ten) (Volume 1) - Jane Blythe

The simple covers for Jane Blythe’s Count To Ten series speak to me (this is the one I have) and, of course, reading about serial killers is always a high priority.

 

I love dark stories, the darker, the better.

 

One…

MY REVIEW FOR ONE

 

 

I love dark stories with murder and serial killers running wild, and Jane Blythe has come through in this fantastic series. This guy is a real sicko. Only death will stop him.

Right off, I’m thinking…Oh no she didn’t…

 

Yes, he fell for her and yes, there’s a lot more gory and brutal murder to come.

 

Who is it? Why such grotesque murders?

 

I have a problem with Annabelle and Xavier hooking up, but hey, stranger things have happened. He seems too old for a naive, inexperienced young woman like her. I like my books to be ‘realistic’ and, even though I enjoyed how it developed, not just jumping in bed, but the slow and getting to know you kind of thing, something still felt off.

 

Annabelle ‘s dialogue made her seem older than her years, but maybe the traumatic events she has been though have caused her to grow up sooner. After all, she had been the adult of her household.

 

I love the fact I can’t figure out who is the culprit, even though I feel I must have met him by now. I do have a feeling…oh, wait, maybe it’s him…or could it be him?

 

The sicko wants revenge and I want to know why.

 

The twists and turns kept coming, never letting up, even when the last page was read. I DID NOT want it to end. Jane Blythe was ‘this close’ to having me rate this a five and I definitely look forward to reading more of her work.

 

I voluntarily reviewed One by Jane Blythe.

Serial Killers Run Amok In The Count To Ten series by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor
Two (Count to Ten Book 2) - Jane Blythe

I love dark stories, the darker, the better.

 

Two…

 

This is the simple cover I have and I like it a lot.

 

Two (Count to Ten #2)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW FOR TWO

 

Jane Blythe writes of serial killers and grotesque murders and I LOVE it.

 

Brooke Mariano is a pregnant teenager with dreams of wealth and leisure and her life is snuffed out like a candle, all to keep a secret, a secret I want to be revealed and the guilty party to pay for it.

 

I like that Ryan’s interest in Sophia began before they were shoved together because of the murder. Her mysterious illness may seem to make her weak, but she is strong enough and determined enough to live on her own, disinherited by her rich father because she has a mind of her own. I love strong, independent female protagonists, and Sophia is spot on. I hate men that act like dictators and feel women are supposed to fall in line.

 

The body count grows and so does the suspect list. I love to be kept guessing and Jane Blythe is very good at doing that. Was someone in the family eliminating other members? If so, why? Most of them are wretched, miserable, pathetic excuses for human beings, so, in my book, none of them would be missed. LOL

 

Sometimes those surrounding the killer are worse than the killer himself.

 

When they go into the room…

 

Jane Blythe’s use of misdirection is very well done.

 

I can easily visualize events as they unfolded, as if a Criminal Minds episode was playing in front of me. It is so easy to picture Sophia…in a wheelchair, hunched over, looking at photos…But…I do hate a character I am growing very fond of making such a predictable and stupid error. Now, I am pissed at her. Is it my personal feelings keeping these ratings at fours, where others would rate them higher? It’s up to you to decide.

 

The book has an ending , but Three will bring One and Two together in a reunion I do not want to miss. I can hardly imagine where Jane will  take it and I am rubbing my hand together in glee just thinking about it.

 

I voluntarily reviewed Two by Jane Blythe.

Before the sun rises, another will fall.

 

When Brooke Mariano is found murdered on the grounds of the powerful Everette family’s estate, it looks at first as though she may have been killed in order to keep the paternity of her unborn child a secret.

 

However, when another member of the Everette family turns up dead each night, it quickly becomes a race against time as Detective Ryan Xander and his partner try to discover which member of the family is the killer before the entire clan wind up dead.

Ryan’s only inroad to the secretive family is Sofia Everette. Shunned by her father for her refusals to obey him, and battling a mysterious illness, Sofia’s childhood dreams may be the key to saving her life and stopping the killer from exterminating the entire Everette family.

Emma / edited with an introduction by Ronald Blythe
Emma - Ronald Blythe,Jane Austen I have always loved this most surprising of Jane Austen's books and am reading it again. It really does read like a detective story. Emma, the heroine, has always had my sympathy! She's not perfect and she never will be despite the best efforts of her friend Mr. Knightley to reform her character. The romance in this book is surprising and it really did take the main characters by surprise too. It's an unusual romance with two people who you would never expect to well, actually BE in a romance together! Opposites attract and all that I suppose...The recent BBC production was just wonderful, which is pretty much the reason that I am writing this review. I absolutely loved it. I love both the book and the BBC production! :) It's wonderful when your favorite book is turned into a great movie or television series. Then you may just sit back and enjoy watching it come to life for you. I have nothing to add or to take away from that production. Everyone looked the way I pictured them, acted the way I thought the characters would, the scene at the ball was lively, and so was Emma. G. Paltrow's Emma was never as lively as the character was.Emma, I've been told by other Jane Austen fans, is a hard character to understand or to like. Well, that was sort of the point. Jane Austen set out to write a book about a character who no one would like but herself. Yet, I do like Emma. I think that she is full of faults but who isn't? She tries so hard to mend them that as a fictional character she wins my admiration. She helps me to bear with my own faults and gives me hope that one day I just might mend them as well. I never did like heros or heroines in books who were too good to be true or so lost that they might never find their way back. It's just not real. Most of us are somewhere in between and it is the trying to better yourself that makes a hero or a heroine out of anyone really. Emma surely falls into that category. This character is not as perfect as Lizzy Bennett who almost has no faults and is extremely wise at her age. Emma is not nearly as likable as Lizzy, but that makes me cheer for her all the more when she is able to understand what it was she did wrong and what it was in her life that was so very right. She held on tightly to that person who meant the most to her when she should have. How lucky to have wisdom come to you when you need it most, and to be wise when it's most important! Emma was written by the author at the prime of her genius and it's just a wonderful book.
