About the Book

Title: Tall Willows

Author: PC Feather
 
Genre: Murder Mystery / Romance
 
For senior Ruth Willows, her last year at Golden Valley High School in Golden Valley, Colorado was to be the best year ever. That is until the drop-dead sexy cowboy love-of-her-life Ken Silver turns out to be the school’s new English teacher.
 
When she sees him at school, she faints from the shock, crashes into a bookcase, and goes to the ER. Ken, realizing his terrible conflict of interest, goes to the ER and tells her he cannot see her anymore. Ruth returns to school, injured, mortified, and heart broken only to discover the district accountant shot dead in the school darkroom.
 
If that weren’t enough, she accidentally picks up a file that the late administrator left in the school office before his death. The file contains proof that someone was embezzling funds from the school. Ruth finds herself in the middle of the mystery. Was the administrator killed by the embezzler? Does the embezzler know this file exists? Could the murder be a coincidence?
 
Tall Willows takes you to beautiful horse farms in the fictional small town of Golden Valley, Colorado, back to high school and first love, and into the mind of a crazed murderer. If you love a good mystery with a steamy side of forbidden romance, you’ll love Tall Willows.

Book Review: The Sanctity of Sloth by Greta Boris

Title: The Sanctity of Sloth
Author: Greta Boris
Genre: Suspense, Mystery
Series: The Seven Deadly Sins
Rating: 4,5 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

There’s one thing more dangerous than testifying to a crime—staying silent.
Locked in the ruins of a California Mission, Abby Travers watches helplessly as a girl dies outside her window. As she struggles between her moral obligation to come forward as a witness, and her commitment to a Medieval religious practice that requires her to retreat from the world, the situation spins out of control.
Abby’s hesitation starts a series of catastrophes. She finds herself at the center of a deadly cover up where every minute counts and indecision could be fatal. She questions all her beliefs and everyone she knows becomes suspect. To save herself and those she loves, she must break free from her self-imposed prisons of stone and fear.
The Sanctity of Sloth is a taut, psychological thriller that answers the question: What happens when a good woman does nothing? Fans of Paula Hawkins and A.J. Finn will enjoy this third book in Greta Boris’s Seven Deadly Sins Series.

 

The Sanctity of Sloth is the first book I’ve read by Greta Boris, but I’m already certain it won’t be my last. This book is the third book in a series, but even without reading book one and two, I could follow the story easily enough.

Abby Travers is forced to watch helplessly when a girl dies outside her window, while she’s locked up in a secret room in the ruins of a California Mission. Abby doubts between coming forward as a witness, and her commitment to the practise of the anchorites (and for those unfamiliar with the word, an anchorite is someone who withdraws from secular society for religious reasons). The practice sounds a little bizarre, but when woven into the story and connected with the personality of someone like Abby, it actually makes a lot of sense.

Abby’s hesitation to come forward has disastrous consequences, and Abby starts to question everything she’s ever believed in.

The pacing is great, the tension is nail-biting, and overall the premise is intriguing. Abby makes for a complex, but well-defined and recognizable character. A suspenseful mystery that certainly leaves the reader guessing.

Book Review: Where Shadows Meet by Nathan Ronen

Title: Where Shadows Meet
Author: Nathan Ronen
Genre: Espionage, Thriller, Mystery
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

It’s up to him to stop the assassination of the King of Morocco and stop chaos in the Middle East.

Arik Bar Nathan is head of the Israeli National Security Council. He has a direct contact with the Prime Minister. Due to the sudden death of the Prime Minister, Arik’s entire life is about to change.

The new Prime Minister seeks a better public opinion of him and demands that Arik serve this need to build a political image as Mr. Security, revealing secrets and showing off the success of military operations. Arik, an honest professional is not willing to take part in any of these fraudulent activities. The PM decides to end Arik’s duty and dismisses him, as well as the head of Mossad, from their positions.

The new head of the Mossad is a cunning character whose ties to the new Prime Minister are anything but professional.

It doesn’t take long for the new head of the Mossad to ask Arik for assistance. The Israeli Intelligence Agency has received information about Al-Qaeda operatives planning to assassin the King of Morocco during the Inauguration event of the big mosque in Casablanca.

Arik is the only one person who can put an end to this plot and is asked to use his abilities and contacts, to assist in this underground mission In Morocco, and save the King together with the French DGSE secret service.

If the King of Morocco is assassinated, there will be chaos in the Middle East and thousands of lives will be lost. Arik and his commando team must get to him first!

Where Shadows Meet is a tapestry of intrigue, wit, drama and dare that enthralls the reader from start to finish. A brilliant espionage thriller that will leave you breathless. It is the remarkable story of those who live in the shadows, working under false identities and behind masks, addicted to adrenaline and control. An intricate tale of passion and danger.

Nathan Ronen’s history with Israeli national security easily conjures the stories of extraordinary people, dedicating their lives to ensuring public security while paying a costly personal price. These people live in the shadows, functioning behind masks and borrowed time, and like many of us, remain terrified of loneliness.

In Where Shadows Meet, Arik Bar Nathan has worked as the head of the Israeli National Security Council under the previous Prime Minister, but after the sudden death of the latter, a new Prime Minister is elected who demands Arik helps him craft a better public and political image.

Arik refuses to take part in any unsavory activities, and is promptly dismissed. However, Arik is soon asked for assistance by the Israeli Intelligence Agency regarding Al-Qaeda operatives planning to assassinate the Kin of Morrocco. Arik is the only person who can put an end to this evil scheme, but he will have to risk his own life to do so.

Action, espionage, this book feels like watching a movie, and a pretty good one at that. The dialogue is fast, the scenes are action-packed, the pacing is tight, and overall, this is an excellent read!

 

Book Review: A Trace of Revenge by Lyle Howard

Title: A Trace of Revenge
Author: Lyle Howard
Genre: Paranormal Mystery, Thriller, Supernatural Thriller
Rating: 4,5 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

A young boy is left for dead by the assassin who has just bludgeoned his parents.

Matt Walker witnesses the murder of his parents but is able to escape and remains alive. He loses his ability to hear but finds out he has a unique power called Psychometry. This power is an ability to “trace” or know an object’s history, just by touching it.

A few years later, a top-secret government armament is stolen during a deadly hijacking at sea and someone intends to sell the powerful weapon to fulfill their own twisted ambitions.

At the same time, a ruthless mob boss has a gruesome secret that he must protect no matter the cost.

All it takes is something as unassuming as a foul ball hit at a Major League baseball game, to send all of these characters and events spiraling on a collision course aboard the most unique cruise ship ever built and send Matt on the quest to find his parents’ killer.

In A Trace of Revenge, Matt Walker witnessed his parents’ murder and narrowly escaped with his life. Although he can no longer hear due to this terrifying ordeal, he discovers he has an unique power: the ability to trace an object’s history by touching it.

Seeking revenge for what happened to his parents, Matt is dead-set on tracking down the killer, no matter what the cost. Add in the theft of a top-secret government weapon, the most unique cruise ship ever built, and a ruthless mob boss with a harrowing secret, and you have an edge-of-your-seat thriller that is fast-paced, not predictable at all, and solidly escorts the reader from one chapter to the next.

Book Review: Haunted Blood by Elik Katzav

Title: Haunted Blood
Author: Elik Katzav
Genre: Paranormal Mystery / Thriller
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

A missing reporter is found drained of blood after being murdered in a ritualistic ceremony.

Now, a young boy has gone missing.

David used to be a police detective before he was shamefully dismissed for claiming that a demon possessed an old priest.Now, he is taking odd jobs as a private eye and investigating the disappearance of a missing boy. As his investigation progresses, he becomes certain that supernatural forces are involved.

The theft of an ancient pagan god statue from a museum, a patient in a psych ward who claims she took part in secret sacrificial killings, and a ruthless cult leader who will stop at nothing, all allow David to understand evil things are coming his way.

David must solve the mystery before the clock strikes zero. If he doesn’t find the boy, he will lose himself as well.

In Haunted Blood, we follow main character David, who used to be a police detective before he was dismissed because he claimed a demon was possessing an old priest. Now, David makes a living as private investigator, and it’s this job that leads him to the search for a missing young boy, which is linked to the murder of a missing reporter – found drained of blood in what looks to be a ritualistic ceremony.

Combined with a woman in the psych ward claiming she participated in sacrificial killings, and an evil cult leader, David realizes that the evil he recognized all those years ago has come back to haunt him. And if he wants to find the missing boy, he’ll have to face his own worst fears.

The world-building was great. I read a lot of paranormal mysteries, but to have one set in Israel is quite unique and gave it an intriguing feel. I liked the characters and plot, even if the plot was not that original, the setting and characters definitely made it entertaining!

Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Sharon Davis, fearless NYPD homicide detective, is back in another sophisticated mystery where two cleverly crafted murder cases intertwine in the least expected way. A gripping thriller that will leave you speechless

Beautiful and tenacious NYPD homicide detective, Sharon Davis, investigates the unexplained death of a notorious escort girl who catered primarily to New York’s elite. Many high-ranking officials want her to close the case and quit snooping around, but Sharon knows there’s more to this than meets the eye. In the middle of the high-profile case, she meets sixteen-year-old Becky who desperately needs her help. Becky’s entire world crumbles overnight when she discovers she is the sole survivor of the horrendous assassination of her family. She turns to the help of her Uncle Jake but learns he isn’t who he has claimed to be…

Love and passion, witty dialogue, and sharp humor lead to questions with surprising answers

Becky must leave her peaceful hometown and search for clues about her about her mysterious past in New York City, where she crosses paths with the famous detective.

Supposedly, two different mysteries with two different solutions. Is that so?

The questions keep piling up: Who stands behind the ruthless vendetta against Becky’s family? How will Sharon’s chase after a sadistic killer turn out? And what will happen between her and the rugged marshal who has found himself in the middle of her investigation?

In The False Mirror, Sharon Davis is a NYPD homicide detective who is tasked to solve the unexplained death of a notorious escort girl who catered to New York’s elite. With many high-ranking officials wanting her to close the case as soon as possible, Sharon is not willing to give up until she finds some answers.

And then she meets Becky, a 16-year-old girl who is the sole survivor of the horrible murder of her family. Desperate to find answers as to who killed her family, Becky turned to New York and crosses paths with Sharon there.

When Sharon finds out both cases might be intertwined, she’s in for her most dangerous hunt yet, on a sadistic, ruthless killer.

This is an intense rollercoaster of a book with many edge-of-your-seat moments, great characters (in particular Sharon, who is downright amazing), a thrilling mystery with lots of twists and turns and great writing.

Book Review: Beast by Shirley Gal

Title: Beast
Author: Shirley Gal
Genre: Mystery, Romance, New Adult
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

She has no past…

A woman wakes in a dark room with no recollection of how she got there, let alone her own name or where she lives. She has no idea how, but everyone else seems to know her as Gabi. A series of unknown numbers run through her head and her dreams are plagued by a faceless man.

She has no allies…

James is an enigmatic stranger who has dubbed himself Gabi’s caretaker. He’s a beast of a man with the gruff personality to match. It’s unclear what he knows of her past, but he’s obviously keeping something from her. She’s forbidden to leave, though she’s not his prisoner. He sets her on edge, but she can’t help feeling drawn to him.

And now, she must gamble on her future with this stranger.

When Gabi Levin enlisted in the Israeli Mossad, she thought she was signing on for a charmed life of adventure and intrigue. Instead, she finds herself married to a man she doesn’t know and couldn’t love, living in a detached tower, training for hours on end. Without carbs.

Adam Miller is a man who always gets what he wants. He’s the trifecta: handsome, rich, and a condescending prick. He assumes that he can easily dominate the beautiful woman assigned to be his wife, simply using her to locate the information he needs.

Now, they both must get past their preconceptions and learn to trust each other if their assignment is going to work.

In Beast, the first book in the Shadow Games trilogy, a woman wakes up in a dark room with no idea of how she got her, no memory of her own name or who she is. Everyone else seems to know her as Gabi, though, and her caretaker is James, a gruff man who is obviously keeping something from her. Moreover, James refuses to let Gabi leave.

Yet in the past, Gabi signed up with the Mossad, passed all the tests with flyikgn colors, but is then assigned in a top strategic mission for which she has to marry Adam Miller. Although Miller is distant and cocky, Gabi starts feeling something for him and the attraction is mutual.

The book doesn’t take itself too seriously, and that’s a good thing. The romance is solid, Gabi is a charismatic, strong character and Miller is drop-dead sexy, and the two of them make a good match. There’s a lot of humor in the writing, and that makes the book stand out from other reads in this genre.
