The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz delivered a gothic suspense with a touch of romance and a creeptastic setting along the Oregon coast. Reisz is a masterful storyteller and quickly pulled me into this unsettling tale. Suspense, mystery, lies, secrets and more await you in this addictive tale.
This Fallen Prey returns us to the remote town of Rockton, in Kelley Armstrong’s gripping Casey Duncan suspense series. Sheriff Eric Dalton and Detective Casey Duncan have their hands full when the Council has them babysitting a serial killer. Twists and non-stop danger had me reading into the wee hours.
About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis is the fifth novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series and once again Shalvis transported me to this quaint little community and pulled me into Kylie and Joe’s story. It was fun seeing these sexy, and stubborn characters tumble.
I have enjoyed K.A. Tucker’s stories since she first began writing and have watched her transition from contemporary romances to romantic suspense. Each book has been more powerful than the next. Keep Her Safe delivered a suspenseful mystery thriller with a side dish of romance that finished out my 2017 reads with a bang!
Undercover Attraction by Katee Robert is the fifth novel in the wildly addictive O’Malleys series featuring mafia families in Boston, MA. Hot, intense and filled with complex characters you will come to love. Robert captivating story alongside the narrations of Charlotte North delivered another memorable listen.
Genevieve Cogman vivid imagination continues to enchant me in The Lost Plot, the fourth book in the Invisible Library series. Dragons, betrayal and multiple identities lead to interesting events as Librarian Irene Winters looks to thwart an attempt that may have dire consequences for the library. Every spoken word counts in The Lost Plot delivering non-stop action and entertainment.
A brilliant suspense thriller, The Chalk Man, written by C.J. Tudor and narrated by Euan Morton was both thriller and mystery. The Chalk Man is Tudor’s debut novel, and I get chills just thinking about her next book. The story that unfolded had a beautiful, addictive flow that allowed the listeners to step into the story and lose themselves.
Jayne Ann Krentz delivered a gripping romantic suspense that is sure to delight old and new fans. Promise Not to Tell is the second novel in the Cutler, Sutter & Salinas series but will work as a standalone. Complex characters, a cult, hidden key, and murder kept me up into the wee hours hoping for a happily ever after.
Touch of Red, by Laura Griffin, is a standalone FBI romantic suspense in the Tracer series. A forensic lab geek with a propensity to investigate and an FBI agent work a murder case that brings danger, heat, and passion.
First, I must note that while this story contains its own mystery to be solved, the overall series arc, character buildup, and world demand that these books be read in order. So if you haven’t run, don’t walk and grab the City of the Lost (currently on sale for $2.99). The third novel, This Fallen Prey releases in February 2018.
