Authors giving away free books

A Bad Day For Sunshine by Darynda Jones @Darynda

A Bad Day for Sunshine - Darynda Jones

I have seen Darynda Jones name bandied about for a long time now, so I am glad to finally pick up one of her books and have an introduction into her world with A Bad Day for Sunshine. I couldn’t resist this fabulous cover. I want to thank Darynda Jones and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review my first Darynda Jones novel.

 

It will be released on April 7, 2020 and is available for preorder HERE.

 

A Bad Day for Sunshine (Sunshine Vicram, #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I have been wanting to read a Darynda Jones novel for some time now, so when I saw the chance to grab this advanced review copy from NetGalley, I jumped all over it.

 

Sunshine Vicram is back in town after some shenanigans pulled by her parents, getting her elected as the sheriff of Del Sol, New Mexico, and supplying her with an adorable home for her and her daughter, Aurora.

 

Right off I liked Sunshine and Auri’s relationship, their verbal banter leads to some very humorous dialogue, and I could there are some underlying problems.

 

  • Sunshine has a past that demands answers and she is going to find them
  • Auri has seemed a bit off since the New Year’s party she went to when they arrived.

Del Sol is a small town with all kinds of crazy going on. We have some unique, quirky, entertaining characters and lots of secrets surround them. There is a sense of mystery underlying every event that transpires and no one gives answers easily.

 

I enjoyed the beginning of the book, but began to wonder what all the hoopla was about Darynda Jones’ work. The fun writing and character’s personalities had me liking them and the undercurrent in town made me think there was danger coming, but where is that feeling that I can’t stop reading until I have all the answers? At 30%, I became more involved, but the verdict is still out.

 

At 62%, Darynda Jones got my attention with a twist and I even teared up thinking about Auri…and the rest of the pack. After this it moved quickly. I know how this will end, but the last third of the book is what made it all worthwhile, keeping me glued to the pages.

 

Well…I love it and, even though this story is told, I am sure there is more to come for these fabulous characters and I hope to be there with them.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of A Bad Day For Sunshine by Darynda Jones.

The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz @deankoontz #librarylove

The Whispering Room - Dean Koontz

I have been a long time fan of Dean Koontz, though I haven’t reviewed many of his books. I especially love his old time horror, but The Whispering Room is horror of a human kind and I am lovin’ the Jane Hawk series.

 

The Whispering Room (Jane Hawk, #2)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz is Book II of the Jane Hawk series. The books need to be read in order, and when I started the series, I had no idea there are five books, looooong books, but I am lovin’ them.

 

The Whispering Room picks up where The Silent Room leaves off.

 

I must warn you about the characters. There are so many great ones introduced, but many will not survive, so be careful who you become enamored with. She has ‘friends’ that offer their help, some willingly, some not so willingly, but this is a solo operation and she works best alone.

 

“They’ll all know about you in The Whispering Room.”

 

I loved when Jane put her mission aside to render assistance to a family. It shows what kind of person she really is. This is a nice touch, because most of the story is spent with Jane traveling here to there in search for answers.

 

The high and mighty sociopaths are culling the population. Why? What makes the victims such a threat? How did they even come to think of such horror? And all the other twisted, perverted things they do?

 

Iron Furnace, Kentucky makes the Stepford Wives look like child’s play.

 

Utopia…one man’s vision is another man’s horror.

 

I know, with the digital world we live in, there is no such thing as privacy. Every time we step foot outside our homes, we are being watched. Anyone can be found anywhere. But there are even more threats out there and I wonder if something like this could happen in the future.

 

I loved that I made a quick appearance, or at least my name did, Sherry. That’s always fun to see.

 

The action ramps up in The Whispering Room. I was not able to quit reading, rapidly flipping the pages and I mourn for some of the characters that fall victim.

 

Are ‘they’ going to ‘win’? How can they not? But this is fiction, so I know (?) Jane has to come out victorious.

 

I checked out The Whispering Room by Dean Koontz from the library and have already downloaded the next book, The Crooked Staircase.

Vigilante or Rogue – The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz @deankoontz

The Silent Corner - Dean Koontz

It’s been a while since I’ve read a Dean Koontz novel, so I joined the Library Challenge to encourage myself to catch up on some authors I have been missing. I am so glad I did and have already downloaded Book II, The Whispering Room.

 

The Silent Corner (Jane Hawk, #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I checked out The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz from the library and I am so glad I did. I love characters like Jane Hawk, who do what must be done when others are unable to stand for themselves.

 

Call her a vigilante? Maybe. Call her a savior? Well, she can’t save them all and she pays a huge price. It was the suicide of her husband that sets her on the hunt. She doesn’t believe it. She must find out for herself…WHY.

 

The hunter becomes the hunted, when those who want to keep the suicides secret find out she is on the hunt. She finds some unlikely allies as she struggles to stay one step ahead of those who want her dead.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed joining Jane Hawk on her wild adventure. It made me think…could this happen today? Nanobots…are they good or bad, or both? Someone always finds a way to take something good and make it bad and ‘they’ do it in a frightening way in The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz.

 

The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz is part of the Jane Hawk series and does not stand alone. Read in order of release.

 

I immediately downloaded The Whispering Room, Book II in the Jane Hawk series.

He Had a Vision – Shepherd’s Warning by Cailyn Lloyd @cailynrox

Shepherd's Warning - Cailyn Lloyd

Last year I took in numerous books from new to me authors. None were disappointing, though some were better than others. Shepherd’s Warning by Cailyn Lloyd was a delightful surprise.

 

Cover by Rose Miller

 

Shepherd's Warning

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

A house in the woods. The man. The woman. A hidden entity.

 

Who doesn’t love a good haunted house story?

 

Lucas and his brother, Nate, had inherited the MacKenzie mansion in the small town of Lost Arrow. It had sat deserted for years and they were there to make it their home. HGTV would be along for the ride, documenting the transformation.

 

They had no knowledge of it’s reputation, the accidents, the things that go bump in the night.

 

Tom Wolfe had sworn to protect the house, while he waits for the owner, his love, Elizabeth, to return. He wonders why, now, they are people here. Is it at her whim? He likes that they are fixing it up, but once they are done, he wants them gone.

 

A premonition brought Kenric Shepherd to Wisconsin. His vision warns of danger, but he must wait for more to be revealed.

 

As soon as the chainsaw did it’s thing, I would have been long gone.

 

Laura had been treated for epilepsy and was bullied and teased growing up. She learned to enjoy her own company. I guess now she’ll learn it was so much more than epilepsy.

Another #5StarReview from Jaye Frances for The Kure by @jayefrancesnews

The Kure - Jaye Frances

Jaye Frances can write some fabulous stories that go places I never thought I would be…and I love it!

 

The Kure

Amazon / Goodreads

 

Due to mature content, this book is best suited for a Mature YA/New-Adult or Adult reader.

 

John looked at the sign, Lucius D Harwell.

 

He approached the doctor’s door and knew he had to go in…now. Before anyone saw him, “So”, the doctor said, “Are you ready?”

 

When he saw the bucket full of the slithering slime he remembered the woman he had brought in a while back. It hadn’t ended so well for her.

 

What would become of him? There had to be another way. He couldn’t bring himself to let the doctor begin. He had heard stories whispers, quickly hushed when someone approached. The doctor tried to talk him into beginning but he thought it couldn’t hurt to hypothetically discuss other options. The doctor tried to explain that it wasn’t like an elixir or ointment, couldn’t be found in a battle or jar – more like a potion, it was witchcraft. It went against church and state, but John couldn’t help himself.

 

Three conditions would let the doctor begin his recommended treatment, after he told him he would have to “cast away his good name and denounce all things holey and pure”. He would never speak of the books or what was contained in the pages. He agreed. The doctor retrieved the book and John watched him place it on the desk.

 

He saw only one word, KURE. The doctor gave him one more chance to change his mind, but he placed his hand on the cover of the book and felt an evil. As the book turned its pages on its own volition the doctor began reading.

 

How did Jaye Frances go there? It makes me wonder how her mind works.

 

Jaye France’s books have taken me on some wild journeys I never could have imagined, and I always breathe a sigh of relief, for leaving with my sanity, when the story is told.

A True Story – The Vampire Next Door by J T Hunter #JTHunter @partnersincr1me

The Vampire Next Door: The True Story of the Vampire Rapist - Rj Parker, Hartwell Editing, JT Hunter

The Vampire Next Door

The True Story of the Vampire Rapist

by JT Hunter

on Tour February 1-29, 2020

 

The Vampire Next Door is my second book by J T Hunter. I love reading true crime. Of course, a lot of time, the fiction I read seems all too real. So come on in and enjoy the tour.

 

The Vampire Next Door: True Story of the Vampire Rapist and Serial Killer
 

There are two covers for the book, one on Goodreads (above) and one on Amazon (below). Which do you like best?

 

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I love the way The Vampire Next Door by J T Hunter was written. The story flows smoothly, drawing me in to the twisted story of John Crutchley.

 

Factual accounting, but J T Hunter writes with a flair, bringing to life the depraved and gruesome action John Crutchley, a serial killer,walks on a super dark side, not content with just killiing, but rapes and tortures for fun. It’s so hard to understand how someone can do these terrible thing, but I am fascinated trying to figure out what makes them tick.

One victim survives to give details that may never have been known otherwise.

 

He had a terrible upbringing, but I make no excuses for him. We all make choices, and he made some depraved ones. He is brilliant, a genius IQ, equivalent to Bill Gates, but socially and romantically inept. Some of the jobs he held are amazing, working for NASA, the pentagon, and other top secret clearance companies.

 

He is vicious. Delights in seeing terror and suffering in his victims. He was a thief and, even with a top secret clearance, he dealt drugs, because he could. He loved the thrill of getting away with it. Definitely shows his personality.

 

J T Hunter’s research includes letters written by him, interviews, police reports, etc. He is a Ted Bundy type of serial killer, coming across as the harmless guy net door, with a psychopathic ability to fake caring and able to manipulate others to do his bidding. Watch out when the dark comes to light. No conscience. No qualms about lying to achieve his ends.

 

Makes me sick, lying and whining, trying to invoke sympathy. Why does a serial killer think he deserves any mercy? It’s novels like this that leave me feeling angry, enraged, disgusted and totally pissed off…not only at the pathetic excuse for a human being, but the justice system and law enforcement.

 

I take some solace in the advancements that have been made in forensic science and investigation techniques, treating rape as the felonious violent crime it is and the changing of laws, where hopefully the punishment fits the crime.

#5StarReview – Itsy Bitsy Spider by Willow Rose @MadamWillowRose

Itsy Bitsy Spider - Willow Rose

I actually picked up Itsy Bitsy Spider by Willow Rose on an Amazon free day on 11.22.14. I didn’t read it until 6.8.19, but that’s not the books fault. LOL

 

I am thoroughly creeped out by spiders, so I do love this cover.

 

Itsy Bitsy Spider (Emma Frost #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Oh Astrid. My heart is breaking and I’ve only read the Prologue. I am one of those people that love Prologues and Epilogues.

 

Emma Frost is new to the island due to an inheritance, a house from her grandmother. let’s see what kind of trouble will come her way, seeing I know Willow Rose from other stories of hers I have read and she tends to blow my mind.

 

There’s a murder next door. “Welcome to the neighborhood.”

 

Willow has a way of grabbing me by the throat, gaining my full attention as I struggle like the characters to survive the evil.

 

WTF! Sure led me down a twisted, horrifying path to the killer.

 

Willow Rose draws me in slowly…I know it’s hard to come up with something new..and BAM, in your face, but Willow seems able to do that many times over!

 

From past to present an evil secret in Emma’s family is expose.

 

Blew me away. Saying OMG, Omg, omg…

MY REVIEW

 

Is that a lycanthrope that stole that hamburger patty right out of Orville’s hands? LOL

 

I think I know the answer to that question. The critters in Lauren Carr’s books have distinctive personalities that have me laughing, and at times worrying about them.

Newman is a basset hound TV addict. Don’t mess with his remote. Gnarly, a German Shepherd, is a force of nature. Spencer is the sweet loving female of the group.

 

Archie has her own thoughts on the death of the vice president’s wife and I do love a good conspiracy. Was the president their target and Paloma just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Lauren Carr has thrown in so many twists and turns and multiple mysteries that make me wonder what they could possibly have in common.13 victims. Is there more than one murderer?

 

I read The Nutcracker Conspiracy in one sitting. I couldn’t believe how fast I flew through it, having to know who would be the next victim and why.

 

Lauren Carr has upped the game in this mystery, thriller, police procedural. There are a lot of characters, so to choose my favorites is hard for me to do. Of course, the dogs are always a hit and I look forward to what they are up to next. The love and romance is sweet and sexy without the details. Who wouldn’t love to have a husband like Murphy?

 

Every time Lauren Carr has a new novel, I jump at the chance to read it. She keeps me entertained, unable to put the book down until the last page is read. She keeps the mystery alive and the story filled with lots of action that is so well written it is easy to fly through the pages…having to know who did what to who and having some laughs along the way. I do love some humor with my murder.

 

I will be waiting…patiently (?)…for the next book.

If This Is Day 1…Dead Meat by Nick Clausen @NickClausen9

Dead Meat : Day 1 - Nick Clausen

Dead Meat: Day 1 is not my first Nick Clausen storyt. Just like it says, Dead Meat is only the first day in the series, and I am super excited to see where Nick Clausen takes us.

 

Dead Meat: Day 1 (Dead Meat #1)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

It’s hot as Hades, as the kids find themselves in the suffocating basement, dodging a zombie that salivates at the thought of taking a bite out of them…

 

Dead Meat by Nick Clausen gets creepy bad very early and time is of the essence.

OMG! Want bloody, gory, gruesome, sad, tragic, heroic and…?

 

Read about a day in the life of Dan, a teenager that was only delivering newpapers on a freakishly hot day when all hell broke loose in his world. I love this character!

 

I am drooling over the thought of reading more of this delicious series.

Kidnapping & Murder – Dead Or Alive by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor

Dead or Alive (Detective Parker Bell) (Volume 3) - Jane Blythe

Dead Or Alive by Jane Blythe is Book III in the Detective Parker Bell series and it is wonderful to be back with such a fabulous group of characters and to see what trouble they find themselves in this time.

 

Dead or Alive (Detective Parker Bell #3)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Dead Or Alive by Jane Blythe starts out with a BANG…and keeps on going.

 

Detective Parker Bell is doing his grocery shopping, just a mundane chore we can all relate to, when he hears a gunshot and sees a car screeching out of the parking lot. Two bodies are lying on the pavement…

 

The characters all have their heavy baggage to bear and miscommunication abounds because of their need to protect themselves, and their secrets. Parker and Tessa are together, but she holds tight to her thoughts and feelings. It’s a good thing he has patience and so much love for her.

 

Wyatt is Parker’s partner, but he thinks of him as his brother. Parker has a tendency to let his emotions rule him, becoming personally involved in many of his cases. That is how him and Tessa came to be together, but that is another story.

 

I love Jane Blythe’s ability to put me in the middle of the suspense and danger, Darkness and their past seem to dog their every footstep.

 

Tessa…she is my favorite character. If something needs to be done, she feels she must do it herself. She will sacrifice everything for Parker and her friends and family. She puts herself last.

 

I had trouble with a few things, but as the story came together and Jane was wrapping everything up, it all became clear. I love when an author leads me down a path that trips me up and leaves me saying, AHA, I get it now.

 

When Parker comes up missing, she makes a deal with the devil…and that is the tease for the next book in this standalone series. I do recommend beginning at the beginning because I have loved every step of the way, but Jane Blythe recaps a lot of the past action so that you can know why these characters do what they do.

 

SO…What’s the cost of making a deal with the devil? Find out in Little Girl Lost.

One Sentence Review – Winter Arrives by Roz Marshall @RozMarshallAuth

Winter Arrives - Roz Marshall

Winter Arrives by Roz Marshall is a series that is nearly complete, so don’t hesitate to pick it up if it sounds like a good one to you. This is not my first Roz Marshall book and it will not be my last.

 

I like this pretty cover by Alba Covers.

 

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

It’s freezing, the heat is off, no oil in the tank, no money in the bank account…even though the story was predictable, some troubles and some romance, I quickly fell for the characters in this short episode

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 3 Stars
 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

Everybody has something to hide

Jude Winters is confident in one thing – she has no idea how to run a ski school. But a missing husband and mounting bills mean she’s going to have to find out fast. The hard way.

Mike Cole has skied nearly everywhere in the world. Now it’s time to tick Scotland off his list, before he kicks the snow from his boots and carries on with his Kiwi version of walkabout.

Dictating Death - Bonnie R. Paulson

MY REVIEW FOR DICTATING DEATH (wrote on 2.5.15)

 

I’m going over the falls and into deep water. And I go willingly.

 

Maria hated waiting for the death part. The fun was in the lead-in to the final act – the revenge.

 

The creepiness of the cover drew me in and after reading the blurb, I was hooked. Knowing what’s inside only whet my appetite for blood. And I got it. Right from the getgo. From the opening pages the knife was cutting, the blood flowing, the torture beyond belief. It wasn’t enough to kill. It must be a long, drawn out, painful and excruciating death. And Maria reveled in it.

 

Samantha and Maria are at odds with each other. Samantha wants to love Doctor Luke Lawson, while Maria wants to kill him. Call them the Threat Specialists – one is proud, the other horrified. What is the end game? What creates someone so twisted, reveling in brutality, savagery, enjoying the kill? Maybe you will find out…if you read Dictating Death by Bonnie R Paulson

Walk On The Dark Side with The Psycho Collection by B R Paulson @bonnierpaulson

Psycho Inside Me - Bonnie R. Paulson

MY REVIEW FOR PSYCHO INSIDE ME

 

Action from the getgo.

 

The sheriff’s son, Deegan, helps the preacher’s daughter cover up the death of bad boy Bobby. They were friends, but this changed their relationship, brought them closer.

Her instinct was to take his ring for a trophy, but Deegan had a better idea. A tattoo.

The death changed her and now she is on the run. She is fueled by nightmares of Bobby, but determined not to be caught.

 

Are monster born or raised? That age old question, what creates a monster? I am always curious about what drives people to do some of the most heinous acts to others.

Justice doesn’t always come to the rescue and sometimes taking the matter into your own hand is the only answer. I do believe the world has a lot more grey, than black and white.

 

I didn’t see the direction Bonnie R Paulson was going to take with Psycho Inside me, but I do love the Bonnie and Clyde vigilante aspect. I can always relate to a vigilante and I guess that says something about me. LOL She is a badass psycho and I love her…and her boyfriend too. I feel her need to take down the bullies and pedophiles that prey on children. They do deserve the worst that can be heaped on them…and her name is Cassie.

 

She trained. She is only a young teenager, but she becomes a predator, created by those whotreated her as prey. I love how she is changing from her 13 year old innocent ways, forcing herself to become a calculating weapon of justice. Fine by me is she wipes out the perverts. You may feel the same way after reading about the degenerates.

 

The world is dark, with rays of sun shining through when the clouds lift in her mind.

How will this end? Will she be killed in one of the attacks? I want it to end well for her, regardless of what she has done. I love a characters that can win me over so completely.

 

Molestation and sexual assault are difficult subjects to face and talk about, but Bonnie R Paulsonwants you to know…YOU ARE NOT ALONE..you can survive.

 

Psycho Inside Me by Bonnie R Paulson….BLEW MY MIND.
