"Repent at Leisure" by Stevie Turner

My Thoughts....

This read I must say left me on the edge of my seat with this psychological thriller read. There were so many of twist and turns the reader simply may not be able figure it out until the very end. I am simply not sure who I felt more sorrier for...Paul or Anita....definitely there was some help needed. What happens as someone comes up dead? What happens after Paul and Anita are married? Will she start regretting rushing into this marriage due to Paul's strange behavior shifts? Will he seek help? What will happen after Paul gets in touch with his brother Terry who lived in Australia? What secrets will come out from that visit to Australia? After they return back home what will happen next
between this couple. This is where I will stop and say you will have to pick up "Repent at Leisure" to get all of these questions answered and so much more. I will say I was left shaking my head and saying I didn't see that one coming. However, this author is noted for giving the reader surprises and that was one surprised ending for me.

"Watching You" by J. A. Schneider

My Thoughts......

Another good thriller mystery read 'Watching You' that I thoroughly enjoyed the read! This novel is a third in this series.. 'Detective Kerri Blasco' which can be read as a standalone read. This thriller mystery will get Detective Kerri Blasco involved with three murders..Leda Winfield, Tricia Simms and Patrick Vale. However there will be a little twist in this read as these bizarre murders will involve Detective Blasco personally. I loved how this author was able to bring in information about the homeless as the reader will see from the read. This will be a case with lots of twist and turns as this murderer is texting to his victims 'WATCHING YOU' on their cell phones.Now, how will this be done? It will be quite a case of 'cat and mouse' but Detective Blasco will not give up...'even if it means battling her own personal trauma, risking her job, her love relationship with her boss Alex Brand and her life.' I don't want to spoil it for you other than to say if you are in for a good mystery thriller ...pick up "Watching You" to see how well this author gives to the reader another good story as Detective Kerri Blasco brings it all out front and center.

Thank you to the author for a early read of your novel for my honest thoughts of the read.

"Devil In Her Bed" by Amarie Avant

My Thoughts...
Be ready for a very interesting erotic romantic thriller...

From the Stalker....[boogeyman, real crazy man] Jeffery Peterson aka Donald Dudley

......the stalked...Siobhan Lewis

who was killed? ....Samuel, Regina & Everett Godwin...funerals and a few more killings totaling...[15], Alton, Glendora Wilson.....now what has happened to Hosea Murrell.... Siobhan's ex? This is really some good reading!

saver of the day.... Lincoln Zagar and his friend Bernard

add into this wonderful story more colorful characters....Siobhan's mom[Shania], dad[Deon] and friend from work... Siobhan's Executive assistant...Tamara...Siobhan therapist, Dr, Beck, Detective Ortiz, Maggie, Agent Quigley, Lenard Murrell & Elora Zager

This story taking place in several locations.... Northern California, LA...Willow Bluff [hundred miles north of San Francisco], San Antonio, Texas, San Diego, Monterey Beach, Sweden, Fort Brags to name a few.

As the story moves along we are in Willow Bluff where Siobhan is hiding from the stalker.... she has a home and decides to go for a run and who does she meet up with during the run? Yes, that Lincoln Zager.

Now this story will take the reader on quite a long journey. Many questions will be asked.... Will Siobhan be willing to put her faith in this hot guy? What was it about Lincoln that even this stalker felt threatened? There will be a lots of twist and turns that will keep you turning the pages to get more of this wonderfully told story. Now, I will say I had some problems with the heroine...to me I felt she didn't think about certain things...like what could be the reason she wasn't able to get in touch with her best friend and her mom? Didn't she think that there was something wrong with the phones especially after not hearing from her best friend and mom after several weeks? Oh, well as the story continues..we find out more about that crazy stalker...wow is all I have to say. You will have to read this story for yourself to see how well this author presents us with such a thriller of a read.

Will Lincoln be able to find out who the stalker was and how does he handle it with the help of his friend Bernard? What will happen as Lincoln meets and becomes involved with Siobhan family? What had happened in Lincoln's life that had caused some of his weirdness toward his own family? What was it about Siobhan that kept Lincoln so captivated with her? Moreover, what was it about Hosea [a childhood friend] that Siobhan held so dear to her heart about him? But was it the same kind of love that Lincoln held in his heart for her? To find out all of these questions you will you will have to pick up the novel "Devil In Her Bed" to find out!

As the story moves on.... it seems like this stalker will stop at nothing! Or will he? This is a real nut
case!

Now, I definitely don't want to leave out the two....Siobhan and Lincoln...oh yes! It was definitely right on for these two...after they met after that run. I loved the music this author supplied for the readers...Al Greens...'Let's Stay Together' and all of their hot steamy chemistry they had for each other! Why couldn't Siobhan believe that Lincoln wanted more than just keeping her safe? I know she said that she didn't want him hurt with all that was going on with her ...but really?

OK, moving on why was Siobhan hesitate in wanting to call the police about what was going on with her after she moved? What had happened earlier to her when a certain police Detective Ortiz was involved with her brother Sammy's death and Hosea disappearance? It was always interesting seeing these two fall out and then [Siobhan and Lincoln]...you know...getting back together again.

This stalker..what's he up to now? As the story goes on the reader really gets to see deep down just how crazy this person really is... messing with Siobhan's drinking waters, her security system, phones, and...well I will stop here and just say you will have to read what all this mad man had done or was planning to do! How will he be caught? But before he is caught who next will he kill and then he stopped but then started up again due to ***** asking about Siobhan? What had happened to him during his childhood that had greatly affected his mind? How this person was able to get in and out doing the things he did were simply off the chain...down right scary! This creep seems to be all over the place! Get ready because there will be a lot more happening in the read. I know I have told you a lots but there is even more....

And who comes in and saves the day after it is all is said and done?!

Now, it will take a minute for this story to all come together. Then at the end when the reader will be seeking for....well after this author gives the readers one good read but to get there the reader will be presented with two endings. My favorite one was the first one. Will we get a HEA? ...[here is a quote at one of the endings]: that I loved.....
James 1:2-4
"Consider it pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

but you know how this author thinks [very well indeed] giving the reader another surreal ending...so the reader gets to choose which one they will like or really it could have both endings that could have happened in this romantic thriller. I am going to stop now only to say this story is one very well written story by this author. Will this Peterson creep get what is due to him in the end? Well, I have said more than enough so to find out all the answers to all of the questions asked you will have to pick up 'Devil In Her Bed' and see for yourself how this story has been presented so well to the reader. Be prepared to be blown away with this erotic romantic thriller read...especially with those two endings! Would I recommend "Devil In Her Bed?" YES!

"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.

"Gun" by Lee Hayton

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.
