I Recommend Caution When Taking Exit 22 by P M Terrell @pmterrell
Exit 22 (Black Swamp Mysteries) - P.M. Terrell

P M Terrell is a prolific writer and I am so happy I found her. I am sharing one of her Black Swamp mysteries today, Exit 22. It is the first book in the stand alone series and I can hardly wait for you to become hooked too.

 

P M Terrell is just as interesting as her books, so be sure and check out her bio.

MY REVIEW

 

I had my introduction to The Black Swamp mysteries by P M Terrell through Vicki’s Key and I knew it would not be my last. These are my kind of stories, filled with murder, mystery, intrigue and dastardly villains…oh, and a little lovin’ never hurts. 

 

Chris and Brenda’s meeting…was it Karma?

 

Assumptions early in the story took me down the wrong road and it didn’t take long before P M Terrell sent me on a different track.

 

The cops are on their trail, but Alex has it all wrong. He’s like a dog with a bone, so he won’t stop looking for them. Everywhere they turn, someone want to put them in jail…or worse, wants them dead.

 

I still haven’t figured out exactly what kind of trouble Brenda’s in and Christopher is along for a very bad ride. He’s as political strategist in DC. He has lots of important connections to muckety mucks. Can he save her? Will he? Is romance in the air? He knows it’s was all wrong, but it didn’t matter. We can’t choose who we love.

 

HE had never failed on his hits, but Brenda was proving elusive.  I cracked up when I found out HE knits little bitty baby booties. What a fun and contradictory character.

 

Computers, Google Earth, can be the life and death of a person. Information is available at your fingertips. It can work against you, as well as for you.

 

Kept me guessing about the mystery. Is Brenda good or bad? How about Nate? How much is true?

 

Exit 22 has all the things I love in romantic suspense. Unlikely couples drawn into a mystery. Devious villains wanting to shut them up. Assassins. Oil and all its corrupting influence. Greed. And danger. Danger.. Danger.

 

A Note From The Author at the end of the book, really got my fires burning.

 

You’ll need to read to decide, but it makes me furious to know the tax loopholes allowed, along with the corruption of government, shell corps, offshore accounts, US corporations not paying income taxes, social security taxes, medicare taxes, deregulation, less oversight. Beware middle class if you think it will get better…

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of Exit 22 by P M Terrell.

Review of Culturally Proficient Leadership by Raymond Terrell
Culturally Proficient Leadership: The Personal Journey Begins Within - Raymond D. Terrell,Randall B. Lindsey

This was a tough book to get through. I admire and respect the dedication and knowledge the authors bring about culturally proficient leadership, but after a semester of reading about these issues, and my previous knowledge about them, I found this book to be very simplistic. When the authors shared parts of their autobiography to relate to the issues, I found the book very interesting and relatable. However, these passages were too few and far between. So for me, I would recommend this to someone starting out as a teacher or leader, but not for someone with any real knowledge background in the field.

Remote Viewing & The CIA – Vicki’s Key by P M Terrell @pmterrell
Vicki's Key (Black Swamp Mysteries, #2) - P. M. Terrell

Vicki’s Key by P M Terrell has been sitting, ever so patiently, on my Kindle…waiting for me to find it again. It’s like that one sock that your washing machine eats, only I don’t think ya ever find that one, but I did find Vicki’s Key. And I am glad that I did.

 

This was a fabulous read and I would love to visit Vicki again, and again, and again….

MY REVIEW

 

I found the true aspects of the government use and involvement in the psychic truly amazing.

 

I love everything about the book, the swamp for burying bodies, secrets to be revealed and remote viewing to exotic locations…and into danger. But, sometimes, danger is closer than you think.

 

The CIA wanted her to stay, but after her last mission, she knew it was time to move on. Does she really believe they would let her walk away?

 

She was an orphan, with siblings she knew nothing about. She didn’t know how the CIA found her. She grew up in an institutional setting under their guidance and control, treated like nothing more than a lab rat, taught to perform. They wanted her psychic ability, not her, the person. It’s a wonder she didn’t go mad or turn to the dark side.

 

She wanted a life…a normal life and she was going to Lumberton, North Carolina to find it. She would serve an apprenticeship, of sorts, with an old lady and her tropical fish. Easy peasy, right?

 

She immediately runs into Dylan Maguire, the fish lady’s nephew. Woo hoo to the hottie, but Vicki’s spidey senses are tingling, just a little for her, but a lot for me. I think there is much more to him than meets the eye, but I like him nonetheless. He has an air of danger, yet a sweetness and desire to please her.

 

It’s a good thing Dylan can cook, because Vicki can’t even brew a cup of coffee. Who is this man Dylan, loving, caring, thoughtful, romantic and sweet, yet fiery, passionate, protective and beware those who wish Vicki harm

 

Vicki can psychically project herself to a specific place and time, able to tell everything about the place, the people, and the events taking place. Better than GPS.

 

So…I wonder how long Vicki will contain her curiosity about the elusive Auntie and open the door to the forbidden room.

 

I love that the mystery and problems popped up early. Gets me involved, invested in the story and the characters. I really do think thing’s are ‘fishy’, but who is the guilty party and what it’s all about I can’t say for sure…yet. Will she be in danger? And from whom?

 

The mystery is slow building. It is no surprise they both have secrets, baggage that has followed them to Lumberton. P M Terrell has created mysteries within mysteries and I am unable to figure them out. She weaves intrigue and danger into a suspenseful romance with characters I love to hate and love to love. I am a sucker for happy ever after endings and I am waiting for Vicki’s knight in tarnished armor to come to her rescue. Now…that’s a surprise!

 

P M Terrell keeps the romance light and sweet.

 

Vicki’s Key by P M Terrell had everything I could want and more. Some truth, some fiction, woven into a rich and complicated tale that left me wanting more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Vicki’s Key by P M Terrell.

But My Soul Is Black
But My Soul is Black - Terrell Williams

Title:  But My Soul is Black

Author:  Terrell Williams

Publisher: ÂCreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

Reviewed By: Arlena Dean

Rating: Five

Review:

 

"But My Soul is Black" by Terrell Williams

 

My Synopsis....

 

I found "but My Soul is Back" one interesting read in that the story was indeed somewhat strange in how it all started.  A white man wanting to be friends with this black man?  Well this is what happened!  Now, one would wonder with Bobby Selinski wanted to be friends with James Guidry [Jimbo] who was a 'African American foreman' who worked for his uncle. What happens has this really becomes a good friendship?  Well it seems all is going well for Bobby until Jimbo introduces him to a Miss Karen Blackwell who just happens to be Jimbo's favorite lady. What will happen when betrayal comes into play.   Now, I don't want to spoil to much but just say this story really take on a intriguing read to see how this author will bring it all out to the reader.

 

The storyline had some really well developed, portrayed and even believable characters beginning with Bobby, Uncle Fred, Vince, Jimbo, Pete, Karen, Smokey, Miss Thomas and  Carolyn Jenkins to name a few that will definitely keep your attention to the end of the read.

 

In the end one may wonder a little how this turned out. Was this a way to do someone you called your friend?   Did the right man get the woman? Well, again you will have to read this novel to see just how it comes out.  I will say that ending had me raising my eyebrow and saying really? Oh, I will say it was interesting seeing how Jimbo's grandmother tried to work her magic even after death into her grandsons love life.  Did it work?  It was also interesting to see what Bobby did to try to understand if he and Karen should be together. I will say Karen got on my nerves a little but in the end I was able to understand some of her reasoning.

 

All and all this was a good read that will keep you turning the pages and I would recommend.

 

Thank you to Write Now Literary for the early read.  It was definitely a read that will leave you with many provoking thoughts that will leave you to ponder over long after the read.  Was this a real friendship?

review SPOILER ALERT! 2015-08-11 02:32
Upbeat and Hopeful
Rag Dolls: Callie's Story - Shelley Terrell

Rag Dolls: Callie's Story reads like a fairy tale: a beautiful young girl, beset by one calamity after another, manages to get by with a little faith and a little help from a variety of 'fairy godmothers'. The tone, despite some of the intense subject matter, is upbeat and hopeful and Callie is a likable main character. The pacing is good(if somewhat repetitive) and the author's voice fun. Initially, I thought the narration was too childish for the story, but this was explained later on.  However,  there are a few too many coincidences, lucky breaks, repetitive narration, and unanswered questions, (chief of which for me was: is Callie's talent magic or psychic?) for me to give this a five-star. 


Summary: While the book could use a hefty story edit - although mostly grammatically sound -, Callie's Story was an enjoyable way to pass a few hours. 

Note for younger audiences: some violence and an off-screen rape.
