"The Goddesses" by Swan Huntley

 

My Thoughts....

 

What will happen when Nancy want a change in her life as she 'jump starts her family' by moving to Hawaii?  This poor lady had been through so much with that cheating husband Chuck and twin boys that seemed to in into something one way or another.  With all of this drama going on in Nancy's life would moving to Hawaii cause her some happiness?  What happens when she moves to Hawaii with her family?  Who is the woman Nancy will meet and what affect will she have on life?  What will happen when Nancy finally gets out of this disillusion that she had felt so apart of?   This is a interesting part of the read as the story shows just how people often look for happiness in the wrong place.  I will say that was quite a toxic friendship.  Will Nancy learn that one can't live through other people?  Be prepared for lots and lots of drama! I will also say that author really knows how to give the reader a good entertaining read of thrills and  suspense that will keep one reading to see what will happen next in this beautiful Hawaiian setting.  I found "The Goddesses" quite a interesting read that even thought it was captivating it could be somewhat a frustrating read at times too. 

 

Thank you to Net Gallery for the read.

"RUN: The 5th installment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries"  by Deidra D. S. Green

 

My Thoughts....

 

OK,  I will say this story continues on from the last series ... 'Fit' moving on into the next series 'Run.' We see that the police are kept busy with Mayven and Major and let's not leave out Mr. Franklin. How this will come out had me shaking my head and say what?  Then someone is down! Dr. Chloe Daniels really lets her feeling out at this point definitely wanting to know who the two ladies are that are visiting Michael. With all that is upon Dr. Daniels I liked how she was still their with her expertise in helping with this crime spree that has reached for and near.  Then as the story continues do we have someone taking a special interest in Anna Black?  I definitely had a wired feeling about that person interest! Then we have another killing ... what is up with another characters of interest Logan and Beth Ann?  As more people have been found killed the story continues on to Grace [Baby Doll Killer] and I can't believe what she is still at wanting and planning to do to her help. However, I think this time Grace has she met her match?  This will be quite a sad read as love ones are being identified however, there is still much work for the police to be done as they are dealing with all of the killings that have gone on.  What happens as Dr. Brookes calls a meeting with the police chief, Dr. Daniels and Addison with information?  However it looks like someone else has gotten and tipped their hand in this matter.  I will stop here and just say you will have to pick up this read to see who that person is and how closely they have worked with this doctor.  This story will have so many twist and turns that the reader will have to keep up.  It will be really something seeing how this author will put all this series all together in the sixth installment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries.  Now guess who is going to Florida!!!!! I will say this installment had me a little at a loss because there will so much going on.  In the end will we finally see justice as it deals with  Anna Black, Grace Pembroke Wetherby, Major and Mayven and a few other characters as we get to the end of this long ride?  Well, all I can say is that we will have to pick up this last series 'War' and hopefully  all of our questions will be answered to these well written installments to see how justice will prevail.

My Thoughts.....

This novel was quite some read that will have so many twist and turns where you will have to keep up to fully understand what in the world is going on. "The Girl On The Train" was one psychological thriller mystery suspenseful read that will keep your attention as you are turning the pages to get to the end to see who was this killer. I found the characters well developed, portrayed and so very interesting that will make one wonder about people you meet and their lives. Wow, what a read that after all is said and done all of this stemming from a train ride and how a lie can really go haywire.

My Thoughts....

 

Well as one can see these mysteries .... continue....with Anna Black still in prison ...however will she be able to  go to trial after what has gone on with her?  Continuing on what will we find with Grace Pembroke Wetherby[Baby Doll Killer] still doing her thing time around, however, it looks like she has been caught by none other than ?  Now, in this read we get some new characters...Major and Mayven who are causing havoc across the state lines with their killings. Who are these two and why are they on this killing spree?  Now, I don't want to leave out how hard Dr. Daniels and Detective Phillips are still trying to piece these murders all together, however, it seems like they maybe getting some more help with there cases.  All in all to know what all has gone on in this series  you will have to pick up not only "Mischief's Mayhem" but the other two installments in The Chloe Daniels Mysteries to fully understand what has gone on with each of these very captivating main characters[Anna Black, Grace Pembroke Wetherby and Major & Mayven].  So, I starting my next read of this series....FIT: The 4th installment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries to get some more of this mystery read.

"Fit" by Deidra D. S. Green

 

My Thoughts...

 

Well, as we go into the 4th installment in the 'Chloe Daniels Mysteries' we have 'Fit' and all I can say is that this author gives the reader quite a captivating story that will keep you turning the pages and leave one wanting more.  In this series the reader will spend time with some interesting characters from  Mayven and Major, Anna Black, [Detective Fatima Moore] Logan Spencer...a new character, Grace Pembroke Wetherby, Detective Phillips, Dr. Daniels, [Chief Livingston], [Stanley Lucas][Wallace King & Theo Coulter] to name a few that keep your attention all the way to the end.  By the end will these serial killers still reign or will there be a 'standoff?'  Yes, we get another cliffhanger! The story is very well written and I found there seems to be so much going on with some new characters as well as old ones.  The reader will have to keep up as we are presented some more interesting things going on that will certainly be of great interest in the series.  As we go into last series 'Run'...the 5th Installment in Chloe Daniels Mysteries hopefully this series will tie this whole story all together so  that the reader will get all unanswered questions answered.
