Shhhhhh – The Whisper Man by Alex North #AlexNorth @CeladonBooks

The Whisper Man - Alex North

The Whisper Man by Alex North has such a creepy cool cover and blurb, I couldn’t resist snagging a copy from Net Galley. My thanks go out to Celadon Books for the opportunity to read and review The Whisper Man.

 

I don’t know who did the cover, but they did a fabulous job. The Whisper Man is due to be released 8.20.19 and is available for preorder.

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Looking at the cover for The Whisper Man by Alex North, I anticipated a nail biting, spine tingling suspense thriller, and I was not disappointed.

 

As I get to know Jake, Tom Kennedy’s son, better, I can tell he will be a special child. And his dad… Jake and Tom’s relationship is realistic, their feelings and struggles as they try to put their life back together are sad, yet hopeful.

 

They both need a fresh start after the loss, a new town, a new house. The house called to Jake and I wondered why. It had personality, but is there more to the story? Alex North’s description of the house makes me feel as if it is alive, waiting for the right people to come home.

 

I am trying to figure out what is going on with Jake, but Alex North keeps me in the dark. When I find out, I love it. I wonder why I didn’t think of that. I love when, in hindsight, things are so obvious, yet an author strings me along, making me wonder.

 

The killer…The Whisper Man…is s creepy because of the ease with which he lures the children in.

 

Pete, the lead investigator, has a history with The Whisper Man. I quickly came to care for this flawed character. He’s not a young hunk, but he does go to the gym and works hard at keeping himself in shape. He keeps his mind and his body occupied. He can also whip up a delicious meal.

 

At 70%…Hmmm… Got my imagination going with the dialogue and Jake’s thoughts. There has been a subtle threat of danger lurking on every page and I am waiting…sometimes the waiting and the ideas of what is to come is worse than what really happens. Will that be the case?

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Whisper Man by Alex North.

Will She Ever Stop Running – Natalie’s Art by Susan Fleet #SusanFleet

Natalie's Art (Frank Renzi Book 5) - Susan Fleet

I have become one of Natalie’s biggest fans. She is a character I can dig my teeth into and she keeps on giving in Natalie’s Art by Susan Fleet.

 

This is one of those reviews long overdue. I finished reading it on December 20, 2016.

 

Natalie's Art (Frank Renzi, #5)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

This is one of those books that a romance between the two main characters cannot be, yet there is something there…something between them…and I am sticking with the Frank Renzi series until I find out how Susan Fleet is going to end it.

 

Susan Fleet supplies plenty of action. Natalie is a thief, but if she has to, she will kill to save herself. She finds herself in the UK, forced to be a call girl, a whore, a thief,

 

stealing paintings for her lover to sell. How in the hell did she ever get herself into this situation? And how is she going to get out?

 

Frank Renzi has his own life, and it has made it a full one, but there is still Natalie.

 

Natalie’s rough life does not excuse what she does, but I do feel for her. i understand her motivation. Even making a bad choice can be better than letting someone make the choice for you.

 

Will she run forever? Will she ever be able to stop running?

 

The ending was a surprise and I loved it!

A Freak Winter Storm – Whispered Pain by Ashley Fontainne @AshleyFontainne

Whispered Pain - Ashley Fontainne

This cover for Whispered Pain by Ashley Fontainne is different from the one on Amazon, which you can see below. I love them both, but I think this one is my favorite. I won this some time ago and read it back in 2015.

 

Ashley does a lot of covers herself and I believe this is one of them.

 

Whispered Pain

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Ashley Fontainne is an award winning author and I have read a lot of her books. I won this back in 2015 and shame on me for waiting so long to share such a fabulous story.

A snow storm…don’t ya just love a story that starts out like that. Bad things happen during storms in novels. LOL Ya know, like when the town rolls up the sidewalks like it’s the end of the world, telling all to go home and stay there. Ashley Fontainne has a way with words and her writing brings the scenes to life in vivid detail, making me feel as if I am there.

 

She adds the details to her characters personalities that bring them to life, adding those bits and pieces that make you feel empathy, fear, and the need to save them. I feel like I walk in their world, wearing their shoes.

 

The devastation caused by the death of Angie’s sister ruined her family, created a distance from everyone. Death, a loss so deep they can’t recover.

 

I knew from the first sentence that Whispered Pain would be another awesome read. I had a feeling I knew what was coming and as the horror comes full on to Angie, my suspicions are confirmed. I can’t help but smile with wicked glee in anticipation. Ashley Fontainne can take me to the lowest low, a despair so deep I don’t have the strength to fight it…Until…a spark ignites, a fire of determination, a rage that comes to life, as if it is a physical thing. I raged with her.

 

WTF Who died and made these men God?

 

The plot is filled with twists and turns that kept a smile on my face as if it was a present to open through Ashley Fontainne’s words. I love that she brought the story full circle.

The Book That Almost Wasn’t – One Taste of Redemption by Amanda Siegrist @amanda_siegrist

One Taste of Redemption - Amanda Siegrist

Due to a reader’s persistence, One Taste of Redemption by Amanda Siegrist was written. She hadn’t planned on giving this cheater his own story, but Newman refused to be silenced. Amanda does her own covers and she can sure pick the leading men.

 

One Taste of Redemption (One Taste, #5)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I have read the entire series, from Book I, One Taste of You, Zeke and Zoe’s story and it has been fun to follow these Sex and the City type ladies, but instead of roaming the city looking for love, it seems to find them through the mysteries they become involved in.

 

Lately, I seem to find all the notes I take when reading slip by the wayside when it comes time to write the reviews. My mind seems to be in two different places and the characters dictate which scenario will be played out as I type.

 

Newman…what can I say. He got what he deserved when he cheated and the lies began to run rampant. He doesn’t have very good coping skills, so he tends to act out instead of facing the tough decisions. But…I feel people deserve second chances when they feel remorse. It can be a learning experience, when the offense was done ‘innocently’. He never did it with malice. He was stuck in a corner and panicked…

 

I love to see a character earn their redemption. None of us are perfect, so why do we expect perfection from others? Something to think about when we are placing blame and judgment on someone else.

 

We do need some laughs and giggles to help us get through the tough times of kidnapping and danger that dogs the unlucky siblings, Amelia and Adam. Why were they targeted?

 

Now…I think this will be the last story told in this series and I love the way Amanda Siegrist wrapped it up, especially when she wasn’t expecting the story to be told.

 

Thanks so much to the reader who insisted that Newman needed a chance…All the characters made an appearance, plus we meet a couple of new ones. After all, Newman needs some love too. He just needs a smack upside the head, a young man in need of a role model and the sister who sure could use a hand raising him.

 

Amanda keeps her novels…pretty clean…and loves her happy endings. Don’t we all?

Prepare To Be Scared Shitless – Evil Stalks The Night by Kathryn Meyer Griffith @KathrynG64

Evil Stalks the Night - Kathryn Meyer Griffith

This is where myself (sherry at fundinmental) and Laura at fuonlyknew tag team authors and their books. We share our reviews and giveaways, giving you two views and two chances to win!

 

The mind blowing cover for Evil Stalks the Night by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was done by Dawn Dominque. I have read a lot of her books and she never ceases to amaze me with the quality of her writing and her vivid imagination that brings her stories and characters to life.

 

What do you think of this beauty?

 

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Ahhhh, summer vacation. The memories. BUT…she felt like she was being watched.

DON’T GO IN THE WOODS! How many times must we be told. LOL

 

Her terror starts early. What do you see in the woods? Shadows? Flickers of life? Sarah knows what she see all those years ago, though no one believed her. She believes she is in this alone.

 

I love the feeling of dread that hangs on every word, every sentence, every page. I love that Sarah studies everything about the supernatural that she can get her hands on, preparing for what is to come. She believes in her God and loved her Catholic school days. She walks in both worlds. She is older than her years, strong, determined to keep those she loves safe.

 

Life had been hard for her, so much pain and loss. She has her son and her brother, Jimmy. Everyone else is gone. She had left, but it called her home and it was time to finish it. They are trapped and I can feel her, gathering herself, preparing to fight to the death. The big question, who will survive. I will be worrying, not just about the evil, but Kathryn Meyer Griffith too. She isn’t afraid to kill off her characters.

 

At times, the fun dialogue made me forget the danger. That is how good Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s writing is to me. I look at the story as an adventure and I am just along for the ride, and a wild ride it is.

 

Kathryn Meyer Griffith has the ability to lull me into a sense of complacency even when I know evil is to come. Life goes on in a normal fashion…until, wham, bam…I don’t know how many times I thought I knew what was going to happen or that the end was near, only to be given more, another terror, another event of devastating proportions.

 

Shades of her true life share some of the pages, but I hope she doesn’t walk the woods at night looking for evil anywhere but in her mind! LOL

 

Wowed. Amazed. And she broke my heart.

I’m So Excited – The Rogue King by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks

The Rogue King (Inferno Rising #1) - Abigail Owen

I have read several of Abigail Owens series and loved them, so when I got a chance to read The Rogue King, the first book in the Inferno Rising series, I had to have it!!!!

Happy Release Day to Abigail Owen and her Rogue King.

 

Her heroes are some kind of gorgeous. Just take a look at the cover for yourself.

The Rogue King 
by Abigail Owen 
(Inferno Rising #1) 
Published by: Entangled: Amara
Publication date: July 30th 2019
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

 

MY REVIEW

 

She chose her moment to die…to save her children!

 

It is insta love, which in the dragon world is very acceptable, and Brand has an overwhelming need to help the woman covered in flames.

 

Kasia has seen him in her visions. She has been waiting for him. Everyone wants her…dragons, werewolves, vampires… for their own reasons, but no one will make her do something that isn’t right for her.

 

Brand is a rogue, unclaimed by any dragon clan.

 

Though the theme, dragons and paranormal romance is familiar, the Phoenix is rare and coveted…by me and other lovers of the supernatural world. Even though I know dragon meets girl, falls in love, braves many dangers and lives happy ever after, it’s the bits and pieces that an author like Abigail Owen adds that makes the story special.

 

The world building makes the scenery and action come to life. The characters are easy for me to remember, because the story engulfed me. At times the dialogue is humorous, helping alleviate the feeling of danger that hovers around the characters. Tons of action and never a dull moment.

 

I have read several of Abigail Owen’s series and look forward to each and every story she writes. As expected, she gave me a magical love story and new characters to love in her new Inferno Rising series. I have met two of Kasia’s sisters and I think I know who’s story may be next. I can hardly wait.

Giveaway& Review – A Monster Of All Time by J T Hunter #JTHunter @partnersincr1me

A Monster Of All Time: The True Story of Danny Rolling, The Gainesville Ripper - JT Hunter

A Monster Of All Time by JT Hunter

 

Tour July 1 – July 31, 2019

 

Because I live in Florida, I am super curious to read about Danny Rolling.

 

A Monster Of All Time: The True Story of Danny Rolling, The Gainesville Ripper

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I would think there is no one in Florida who hasn’t heard of Danny Rolling and seeing I live here, I wanted to know more. A book taking place in a familiar location has that little bit extra.

 

Serial killers….Nature? Nurture? Born evil? Made evil? We can beat the subject to death, but to me the plain truth is…they made the choice…and they need to pay the price for that choice.

 

J T Hunter covered all the basics and then some. I want to know what makes the bad guy tick, but will that ever really be known? And what makes a woman want to be his penpal, his fiancee, his wife? Now, that, I will never understand. And that raises the question of rights. Why should we make the criminal comfortable and be treated fairly, when he…did what he did. He didn’t give two hoots in hell, so why should we?

Facts don’t tell the whole story, but how can we believe what comes out of his mouth?

 

And what about the innocents caught in the crossfire…those accused…their lives ruined? The media has a big responsibility and, all too often, I feel they abuse it. I won’t got into a big rant about them, but just look at the shape of the news delivered to you today via radio and TV and tell me you believe what they say and feel they are covering all the things that are pertinent to your life or just splashing the ugly across the headlines.

 

A Monster of All Time by J T Hunter is a true story that riled up a lot of emotions and ethical and moral questions. We all have to figure out those answers for ourselves.

Ghost Storm (Hidden Bay, #1) - Jessie Costin

 

Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf unread.  If you are anything like me, you might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks.

 

If you would like to join in, swing by Carole’s Random Life in Books.

 

Ghost Storm by Jessie Renee was published on 9.3.15 and has sat in my Documents on Kindle for, well, probably, almost that long. Why it took me so long to visit Hidden Bay, I can’t say for sure, but, now that I have, I would like to return again…and again.

MY REVIEW

 

I was so happy to visit these wonderful characters and Hidden Bay, where nothing is at it seems and there is a special someone that will help to soothe the lost souls, maybe even find a little romance in Ghost Storm, an engrossing supernatural tale that left me wanting to revisit them.

Fact & Fiction – River Passage by P M Terrell @pmterrell

River Passage - P.M. Terrell

P M Terrell is a very talented author and I have been reading my way through all her books. Whether paranormal or historical, I have loved everyone of them. River Passage has a personal meaning for her and I found it fascinating.

 

River Passage

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

First thing, I would recommend reading this before Songbirds Are Free, which I didn’t do. River Passage is the characters journey to the west, which is based on a true story that revolves around the Donelson Party and Mary Neely, P M Terrell’s ancestor.

 

The writing brings the story to life, all the danger of the Indians, the rapids of the river, the threat of starvation and anything else you can think of during those times. I cannot imagine what they went through and some of it broke my heart, yet gave me hope and inspiration for those who would not give up.

 

I have a feeling, if they had an idea of how long their four week trip was going to be, many of them would have chose to stay where they were. I tried to walk in their footsteps through P M Terrell’s words, but I just couldn’t get there as I sat here on my cozy lounger.

 

P M Terrell continues to entertain and amaze me and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Christmas In July – Winter Wonderland by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor

Winter Wonderland (Detective Parker Bell) (Volume 2) by Jane Blythe (2014-01-25) - Jane Blythe

There is more happening in July than the beach, so let’s celebrate Christmas In July with Jane Blythe’s Winter Wonderland. I love the old time feel of the cover and, of course, the bullet holes got my attention.

 

Winter Wonderland (Detective Parker Bell #2)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The chills will come from more than the Winter Wonderland and Jane does manage to give me a steady supply. Though Winter Wonderland is the second book, Jane recaps Book I, A Secret To The Grave.

 

We start out with screeching tires and a screaming voice on a cold winter’s night. Did we get your attention? Made me sit up straight.

 

Detective Parker Bell is a very patient man and he will need all of that for his love interest, Tess. She is super private, not sharing her nightmares that haunt her sleep.

 

She has a knack for reading people and can whip up a scrumptious pancake. The only place she feels safe is in Parker’s arms, but even her love for him has not overcome her trust issues. Parker can wait, he is strong, heroic, determined, loving…and did I say patient.

 

THE ICEMAN IS BACK…”death or capture, those are the only things that will end this…”

Jane Blythe does a fabulous job with the description of HIS hiding place. You will have to find it for yourself, though.

 

The ease with which HE creeps through the houses and takes THEM makes me wonder how that would work in real life. I love a book that gets my mind revved up, and Jane Blythe is doing it just fine. I can’t imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up, gasping for breath, a gun pointed at my head.

 

The past keeps coming back, complicating an already complicated scenario. The poor girls. I can’t imagine how they felt, the utter hopelessness, helplessness…

 

So freakin’ creepy. Never a dull moment. It may seem easy, at times, to decipher the plot, but Jane Blythe will NOT reveal HIM, until she is good and ready…and I do love that about her. Is she setting me up for something? Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.

I am only now at 42%…and Parker…WTF?

 

Wave after wave of shocks and surprises flow through the pages. Good luck trying to figure it out before Jane is ready to tell you. I wanted to scream and yell at them, tell them to look…please look…think Tessa, she told you…

 

Think the story is over, brace yourself. I did. One shock after another. Danger, threats…doesn’t quit, but I do see something good coming out of it. I could not stop reading. Kept me guessing who would live and who would die. Teeth gritting tenseness, gripping the kindle tightly, wishing, hoping…Can’t die…Can’t die…

 

Whew. I feel rode hard and put up wet.

Dark Promise - Julia Crane, Talia Jager

 

Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf unread.  If you are anything like me, you might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks.

If you would like to join in, swing by Carole’s Random Life in Books.

Today I am sharing one that has been hanging around in Documents on my Kindle for a very long time, Dark Promise, Between Worlds Book I by Julia Crane & Talie Jager. Why? They tend to get lost through all the one clicking I used to do. I still have trouble controlling myself, but I am trying to be choosier. There isn’t enough time to read them all.

 

Published 7.28.12 by Valknut Press, LLC

 

Dark Promise was free when I created this post, but be sure and check for the ‘0’

There is more than one cover and I am curious which you like more. They are both gorgeous in their own right and I cannot choose my favorite. How about you?

 

Dark Promise (Between Worlds, #1)

MY REVIEW

 

Rylie is special. Her mother gave her up when she was a baby to keep her safe, but now her birthday is approaching and there is nowhere to hide.

 

I was quickly intrigued…faeries…I haven’t read a lot of them. Once she met Kallan I became hooked. Even though there is a triangle, it doesn’t bother me, the guys are two separate beings and that just adds to my curiosity…which will she choose…and why.

 

My only problem, I was just getting hot and heavy into the book and it ended. I need more.

One Sentence Review – Broken Doll by Zoe Blake @ZBlakeBooks

Broken Doll - Zoe Blake

The cover for Broken Doll by Zoe Blake hooked me…and I do like my stories dark.

 

Cover by Dark City Designs.

 

Broken Doll (Broken Doll #1)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

I do like my stories dark, the darker the better and Broken Doll is raw, intense, graphic sex, abuse…or..is it, when it is only a doll…a sex doll…WHOA…do not know what I was expecting, but this wickedly weird short story was not in and I do want more.

Archeological Artifacts – Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day @Alyssa_Day

Atlantis Unleashed (Warriors of Poseidon) - Alyssa Day

Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day is the third story in the Warriors of Poseiden series and all I can say is…this is the best one yet!

Atlantis Unleashed (Warriors of Poseidon,  #3)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The first chapter covers the end of Book II, Atlantis Awakening, so you could begin the series here, but you would have missed so much of the goodness, I recommend beginning with Book I, Atlantis Rising.

 

Ever since Keely had touched the wooden fish placed around her neck, she could see him…her blue haired warrior.

 

Who is she…the face Lord Justice keeps seeing?

 

I am lovin’ these fabulous love stories filled with magic and wonder. Each set of characters are unique in their own way, with secrets to be revealed. I love the feistiness of the female protagonists and their male warriors can TRY to control them all they want.

 

It was so funny when Brennan met Tiernan. Laughing through some very funny situations. I do like to enjoy my danger and torment.

Gem Stone: A Gemma Stone Mystery - Dale Mayer

 

Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf unread.  If you are anything like me, you might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks.

 

If you would like to join in, swing by Carole’s Random Life in Books.

 

I can’t remember how I got Gem Stone by Dale Mayer, but it was published October 12, 2012, and, after reading it, I wonder why I waited so long to read it.

MY REVIEW

 

Uh Oh. Gemma Stone is in the wrong place at the wrong time and taking photos, no less. From juvie to a halfway home…

 

But…they messed with the wrong kids when they messed with Gem and her friends.

I love this motley group and their loyalty to each other. One for all and all for one. These kids took me o n one wild ride right to the very end.

 

Love the environmental angle slipped in and the photography.

 

The suspense is different from what I expected, in an awesome way.

 

The writing riveting and captivated me beginning to end.

 

The characters are fabulous and I love how the ‘family’ came together.

 

Touchy subject…foster children.

Monday Mini – The Competition by Marcia Clark @thatmarciaclark

The Competition - Marcia Clark

I would like to thank Marcia Clark, NetGalley and Mulholland Books to have the opportunity to read and review The Competition, the fourth book in the Rachel Knight series.

MY REVIEW

 

I am really eager to begin to read this one because I am hoping to find out the answers to a past that has haunted her.

 

I can empathize with her ability to keep from letting the occasional curse word escape. LOL I can relate to her being cold all the time and dressing for warmth. I do too. I crave 80 degrees.

 

These characters have grown on me in a big way. This is my fourth book in the series and I have enjoyed watching Marcia Clark’s writing grow and develop. This is the best one yet.

 

The Competition deals with a sensitive subject…school shootings.

 

It took me a while to figure out the last villain standing and even more what would be the villains fate. It was so obvious in hindsight, but isn’t that always the way it always is?

 

Marcia Clark does a fantastic job misdirecting me.

 

I still have questions about Lilah and Romy, so I guess there must be another story to come.
