I’ve long anticipated the third installment of “The Nikki Boyd Files”, a Romantic Suspense series written by Lisa Harris and published by Revell. Fittingly entitled “Pursued”, this new story is an edge-of-your-seat nail-biter in just as many ways as the previous books in the series (“Vendetta” and “Missing”), but is perhaps even more descriptively violent. Continue reading
An island covered with designed-to-kill booby traps. Two people whose past returns to haunt them. And a madman bent on revenge. Doesn’t this sound like a thrilling novel that will suck you in and never release you until the end? “Moving Target” is the third book in Lynette Eason’s “Elite Guardians” series published by Revell, and is truly Romantic Suspense at it’s best. After reading the first two books in the series, I grew very curious about the story behind Quinn and Maddy’s relationship… Well, this book finally reveals all that, and so much more! Continue reading
The first book in Ronie Kendig’s new series, “The Tox Files”, is not for the faint of heart. “Conspiracy of Silence” is a heart-thumping book packed with action, surprise, and extreme danger on nearly every page. Of course, when the back cover of the book states “This is the way the world ends”, excitement should be expected. Adding a unique twist, this novel integrates history, specifically Biblical history, as well. “Study the past to define the future” is a quote by Confucius, and as an epigraph before the prologue, it opens up “Conspiracy of Silence” with on-target precision. Continue reading
At last, the third installment to the “Men of Valor” series has been released! Readers of the first two books in this family saga will undoubtedly flock to Irene Hannon’s newest release, “Tangled Webs”. And with the promise of suspense and intrigue, who wouldn’t?
I am very impressed with the storyline of “Tangled Webs”. The many layers to the plot, and how it all comes together in such a complicated yet understandable way, was nothing short of brilliant, and I credit the author for achieving this task to such a high degree. This book is truly a very intricately woven web of plots, incidents – and consequences. Continue reading
“A Financial Thriller That Will Keep Readers on the Edge of Their Seats”. This is the tagline for a new book called “The Domino Effect” written by Davis Bunn and published by Bethany House in the fall of 2016. I’ve read and enjoyed the intricate plots of Mr. Bunn’s work before, so I decided to take a closer look at this one too. Although the back-cover synopsis sounded extremely interesting and fast-paced, I still had one question…what exactly is a financial thriller? Continue reading
Do you enjoy suspense novels that suck you in with the first chapter and keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, guessing at how all the twists and turns will unravel when the truth is finally revealed? “The Raven” by Mike Nappa is just such a book. Published by Revell in 2016, “The Raven” is actually the second book in the “Coffey and Hill” series. While I have not read the previous book (entitled “Annabel Lee”) it did not detract from my enjoyment of this separate-but-connected storyline. Also, while I am not an Edgar Allan Poe aficionado, fans of the famous poet will be delighted by the many intriguing parallels found in the story. Continue reading
Although Christian Romantic Suspense is not my go-to genre of choice, I am happy to be swept away by one filled with mystery, intrigue, and excitement once in a while. Last year I enjoyed “Always Watching”, the first book in Lynette Eason’s “Elite Guardians” series published by Revell, and recently had the chance to read the second installment entitled “Without Warning”. Just who are the Elite Guardians, you ask? As the tagline for the series explains: “Intensity. Skill. Tenacity. The Bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency Have It All.” Continue reading
At long last, Revell has released the second installment in “The Nikki Boyd Files” by Lisa Harris, entitled “Missing”. Picking up shortly after “Vendetta” came to a close, “Missing” has Nikki and her team on the trail of a missing couple who seemed to escape the scene of a murder in their own home. It doesn’t take long for the husband’s body to be found… But what about the wife? With fast-paced action and nail-biting exploits at every turn, Nikki and her team race against the clock even as the trail of the missing woman leads them into a deadly ring of counterfeit drugs and a murderer who will stop at nothing to keep his secrets hidden. As all skilled detectives know, “The first 48 hours are the most critical…” Continue reading
Are you looking for a fast-paced, intense story filled with intrigue, mystery, and shocking twists at every turn? Or perhaps you enjoy clean Christian romances that also contain all the elements of suspense and thrilling action. Well, if either instance sounds like your kind of novel, look no further than book number two in Irene Hannon’s “Men of Valor” series, published by Revell and entitled Thin Ice.
This can’t put-it-down novel has it all; a compelling cast of characters, a gripping, twisting, and unexpected plot, and a climax that will take your breath away and have you reading long into the night! Continue reading
Vendetta, written by Lisa Harris and published by Revell in the fall of 2015, is the first book in a new series entitled “The Nikki Boyd Files”. As a mystery and romantic thriller, this novel has it all – heart-pounding action, emotional drama, and suspense that is enough to make you a little (or a lot) hesitant to read it after dark! Of course if you are like me, you WILL still read it after the sun goes down, because the suspense will just be too much to bear, and you will HAVE to find out what happens next.
Vendetta is very reminiscent of various crime shows on television, just in book format. In similar television fashion, it seems the series will have an ongoing story woven between the books. Of course, this first book also contains a separate-but-related mystery that is solved by the end. With this technique in play, I’m sure you realize that after reading Vendetta you will be anxiously waiting for the next book in the series, set to be released in July 2016! Continue reading
