Thrills Abound in A Secret to the Grave by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor
A Secret to the Grave (Detective Parker Bell Book 1) - Jane Blythe

 

Jane Blythe is a suspense/thriller writer that is on my must read list. I eagerly anticipate each book I receive from  her and she has never failed me. I am beginning her Detective Parker Bell series and know I am going to have many hours of thrills and chills.

 

So….let’s begin.

 

Cover by QDesign

 

A Secret To The Grave (Detective Parker Bell #1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Beware! Once I started, I couldn’t stop and I recommend locking your doors and turning off your phone before beginning.

 

Just looking at the cover for A Secret to the Grave has chills running up and down my spine, as I rub by hands together with glee, eager to dive into another series by Jane Blythe.

 

Detective Parker Bell and his friend and partner, Detective Skylar Wyatt are on the case and it will not be easy to unravel the who, what and why. The kidnapper has taken his first victim and left rules to the game he wants to play. Follow the clues and save some faceless women and Jane will die. Do nothing, let the women die, and Jane will live. What do you think?

 

The first brutal, savage, grotesque murder creates a sense of urgency for all of them…and me.

 

Parker struggles with his past, nightmares making sleep something to be avoided, but nine women’s lives are at stake and they are counting on him and his cohorts to save them. So, buck up. The clock is ticking…

 

I can hardly wait to see where Jane Blythe will take me to next. I want dark, gritty, truly terrifying suspense and death and there is no short supply of it here.

 

Jane Blythe kept me guessing the why of it. I love that. The women are geniuses that have their own nightmares and I keep wondering why they don’t fight back.  No matter what the maniac does to them, the women keep the secret he so desperately wants to know. Why are they willing to go peacefully (?) into that good night? They are damaged goods and I wonder, how far will they let this go before someone decides enough is enough. I love the twists and turns Jane has created. I am curious…so very curious about the secret, the real mystery.

 

I sure do hope curiosity doesn’t get this cat. LOL

 

Romance? Oh yeah…and she fights it every step of the way. Both Parker and Tessa had a hard life and remain aloof in the love department, though they have cherished friends.

 

The fire alarm went off at the police station, my heart began to beat faster.

 

A shot rings out…Oh, please, please, please, don’t let it be her.

 

The slow, agonizing suspense in this riveting, action packed thriller made ME want to go after HIM myself. I wanted to scream at Parker, HURRY, HURRY!!!!!

Halloween Cookies (photos)
Halloween Cookies (Photo Gallery): (Photo Books,Photo Album,Photo Big Book,Photo Display,Photo Journal,Photo Magazines,Photo Story,Photo Traveler,Travel Books,Travel Photos,Travel Photography) - ๋John Parker

When I got this book for free, I was thinking that while it would contain photos of cookies, I also believed that there would be recipes. I was disappointed and the cookies didn't look all that appetizing. They looked like cookies I would make with my children.

Over-the-top World-building: "The Hammer" by K. J. Parker
The Hammer - K.J. Parker


The main character, Gignomai met'Oc, is as memorable as was Bassianus Severus. Gignomai is the youngest member of a sentenced family of exiles on account of the political betrayal of an aristocratic family and he's clearly different from his relatives - he does not enjoy the birth privileges due to his birth, and he willingly spends time with the colonists, and with the passage of years he foments a revolt against hypocrisy and the game of appearances. From here on it is only a few steps away from initiating a political revolution and industrial revolution, and the reader is fortunate to be a witness to the whole process, described in the smallest details. It is worth paying special attention to the image of the world presented; K.J. Parker avoids the mistake of many other fantasy writers, i.e., not boring the reader with the history of past ages, dozens of geographical names, and complex genealogy. Parker is much smarter than that. He goes in a completely different direction, smuggling further information in dialogues or skimping data in descriptions, thanks to which he constantly keeps the reader's attention. We construct the subtle details in our minds.

Crook's Hollow - Robert Parker

Someone is trying to kill Thorn Loxley,the estranged youngest son of a farmer dynasty. And then they try again and he decides to deal with this ordeal all by himself. This rural community is somewhat in turmoil.There are developers on the horizon and Thorn owns the deeds to a piece of land that is needed so this company can create a housing estate. The other grounds are owned by another farmer dynasty, the Crook family and needless to say,they are at daggers drawn. And so the attempts to murder Thorn continue... The storyline is not bad and it has a certain potential but none of the characters feel real,they are all so shallow. The book(not really the story)feels immature. And the end is absolutely over the top. Really over the top. Sometimes a good editor is a blessing...

Dominick's Secret Baby (The Promise They Made, #1) by Iris Parker
Dominick's Secret Baby - Iris Parker

 

We never know when or even how, but love always manages to find a way. One woman's dream becomes her little girl's hope. Helena wanted a family. Without the option of doing so the old fashion way she took the sperm donor approach. Now ten years later her curious daughter has questions and wants answers. What was once a private matter becomes a bundle of chaos, once the truth is revealed. Parker shines with this hilariously, heartwarming over the top romance.
