"Hush: A Chloe Daniels Mystery" by Deidra D. S. Green

My Thoughts....

We finally get an answer to "Sick, Sicker, Sickest" in meeting Ms. Anna Black[Angel of Death] and now we get more of her in "Hush' a mystery, thriller and suspenseful. However, we get another person who is called 'the baby doll killer.' The author does a good job with giving the reader quite a interesting read that flows back and forth as we read more about these two people...Anna Black[aka Anna Montgomery] and ....well I will just let you pick up the read and see who the other is. I liked how this story is presented with the help of Dr. Chloe Daniels[a forensic psychologist], with her assistant Addison and that police detective Michael Phillips that work so well together to bring these two to justice with the two stories coming out of Atlanta and Georgia. This is quite a intriguing as you read and we see how these two people thought pattern comes to light from what and why they were doing what they did. Definitely off the chart crazy! Why did the song 'Hush little Baby' and sewing so important in this read of these two sick one? Well, I will say you will just have to pick up the good read to see for yourself how well this author has thought it all out for the reader to understand both of these situations that are well presented to the reader. So as we continue we find Dr. Daniels, Addison and Detective Phillips working on Ms. Anna Black case. Does she [the Angel of Death] have 'Munchausen Syndrome with a seconding diagnosis of Munchausen Syndrome'...that 'meets several of the criteria outlined by DSM IV-R for narcissistic personality disorder....with sociopathic tendencies?" Now what in the world is all that? CRAZY!! Well...the story leaves the reader wanting more... ABOUT THESE TWO SERIAL KILLERS especially now we have Ms. Anna Black is now saying she 'has decided to testify.' REALLY? Now that will be one testimony I want to hear! As for this other person that is really gone even more nuttier, I guess we will have to wait to see what happens in the next 'Chloe Daniels Mysteries.' What will happen as that car ride begins to 'lumber along' the road. Now what could be possibly go wrong as we will see this crazy person's plans going haywire? One thing is for sure I feel sorry for that Wetherby family [the children] when it all comes out especially with them having to be so close with that crazy sick person. This author does so at well at what she always does and that is give the reader a well told story and in this case I will be looking for the next series to find out what else these two can possibly get into. Would I recommend? YES, however, I would suggest you pick up 'Sick, Sicker, Sickest' to give you a little bit more about Ms.Anna Black.

My Thoughts....

What a captivating suspenseful thriller read that is fast paced definitely keeping your attention till the end! Even though you may have seen or even heard of violence but it is really something as you read from this 'apocalyptic horror.' This author really puts together such a read of this virus epidemic that has sweep through leaving quite a bit of disruption and chaos making people do some horrible things in some kind of twisted minded situations. I will say this isn't my kind of read but I wanted to see how this author would present this story and all I can say is that the author did one heck of a job as I kept on reading. I found this quite one thriller mystery....as I found myself holding my breathe at different times in some of the chapters but reading through it all! Be prepared...there will be lots of violence in this read. So, if you like fiction based on apocalyptic events with its aftermath for survivors you have come to the right place for one intriguing story about 'Gun.'

‘Seven customers shot dead in a coffee shop. Thirty shoppers cut down by an assault rifle at the mall. One hundred and eight pupils killed by high-school students on a rampage. It’s just reached 10:00 a.m. on a beautiful spring day. When a neurological virus triggers an epidemic of gun violence, a modern US city fractures into chaos. Annie’s husband shoots at commuters while his son is buckled in a car seat. Frankie and Becca desperately try to hide from a deranged shooter at their school; Robert runs headlong into the midst of a lopsided gun battle; and Blain…? None of them know Blain’s true story. Thrown together—their families dead or missing—these survivors struggle to escape the newly dangerous city. Hoping to find a place of safety. Somewhere they can bide their time until the violence subsides, the authorities seize control, and good once again triumphs over evil. They’re in for a long wait.'

As the reader will see from this read of how this virus makes its sufferers lash out and then shoot randomly triggering quite a story of survival of how different survivors, victims and even innocent bystanders' lash out and shoot randomly at people. This was quite to read of how this author presents these stories of survivors, victims and innocent ones and even more interesting the take on gun violence. Who will one side with, how do you even survive all of this and most of all is their a cure of the sick who are causing all of this mess? Yes, these are ill people but what should be done with them? I liked the 'empowerment that this author gives the women in this read...shooting, fighting and trying to help each other out! 'How these people come together in all of this conflict' is the really core of this story. I found the characters [Annie, Becca, Frankie, Robert, Blain, Mikey] to name a few for the most part well developed helping give this story a good plot in this apocalyptic survival novel.

In the end will good triumph over evil? Well. I guess you will have to pick up 'Gun' to find out. Oh, there will be another series..Gun 2.

My Thoughts....

What a cozy mystery Christmas read that not only gives the reader a good story but some good food too! I liked the plot that was presented that simmered around the death of a part time Santa Claus [Brad Whitefield] and a 'Undercover Chef' [Lilah Drake] in Pine Haven. This 'Under Chef' was Lilah Drake who was quite something else in that she had such a intriguing job ...an 'Undercover Dish business where she cooked for people who then took the credit for the food that didn't have the time or the talent to make.' After delivering food to a third grade teacher at the school for a school party [macaroni and cheese] Lilah happens to see Santa in the parking lot. After speaking with him Lilah just minutes later happens to see something bad happens to Santa [hears a gunshot...she calls 911] and the story takes off from here. Needless to say Lilah life will be put in jeopardy due to the fact she has witness a murder and someone wants to keep her quiet. Now, how will this all turn out after putting Lilah under police protection? What will happen after she will have to team up with her former fling, Detective Jay Parker as they try to find out who this Santa really was and who was trying to kill her? This is where I say you must pick up this good mystery to see how well this author brings it all out to her readers. I found all of the characters very engaging, well portrayed, spirited and fun giving the reader a very interesting suspenseful mystery read. Oh, I don't want to leave out Lilah's dog Mick [Chocolate lab]who was just charming pet and the detective Jay Parker whom Lilah was trying to avoid after that disastrous earlier date[from Book 1..The Big Chill] who added to this good read. I really liked how this author was able to give us a read where after you read the novel you can see that the clues were there all the time ...well hidden and very well done. Be ready for 'yummy plot twist, deception, humor and some wonderful writing.'

This novel will definitely put the reader in the mood for the Christmas holiday...especially with all of that good recipes that will indeed make your mouth water. If you are looking for a good mystery read especially during the holidays I would definitely recommend this one "Cheddar Off Dead." The reader will get a little bit of it all from a well written holiday cozy captivating mystery that has a good flow of the storyline, the ending... wow and oh my the food that was talked about was off the chart good!

My Thoughts....

Get ready for a unforgettable ride as Wini, Pia, Sandra and Rachel who were best of friends head for a wild on the Allagash River in Maine on vacation. Now, what all happens during the trip will be one to truly have you saying did that just happen? What happens as their raft capsizes and leaves them stranded in a area that wasn't at all friendly. This author does a well done job at giving the readers quite a interesting characterization of each one of them that will keep you turning the pages to see what drama is coming next. I will say this was truly not quite a job for one doing this kind of outdoor skills especially since none of them had never had any experience in this endeavor. But I guess that makes this story even more interesting. Will these friends make it through this remote wooded area of Maine in one piece especially after they come into contact with some real strange people? I will stop here and say you will have to pick up the read to see for yourself how this author brings it all out to her readers. If you are looking for a good suspenseful thriller mystery, you have come to the right place because this novel will give it all to you.
