A Thrill Ride of a Story

I’ve never before read a novel by Carrie Stuart Parks, but with the unique synopsis of her newest release I was excited to give it a try. “Formula of Deception” is a complicated, hair-raising, and fascinatingly detailed suspense novel from Thomas Nelson Publishers that had me reading long into the night as I quickly flipped the pages to discover how the story was finally resolved.

An Incredibly Well-Done Suspense Novel

imageVendetta, 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, 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
