  • Deadly Deceit

    Deadly Deceit by Natalie Walters is book two in the Harbored Secrets series. You don’t necessarily have to start with Book one, but I hate reading things out order. I will admit that I loved book one (Living Lies) and so I had super high expectations for the second.

  • Echoes Among the Stones

    Jaime Jo Wright’s Echoes Among the Stones drops readers into a seventy year old mystery. Set in two time periods, the story revolves around Imogene Flannigan, whose sister is murdered. Flash forward as Aggie Dunkirk tries to put the pieces together and figure out who killed her great-aunt Hazel. But someone keeps sending warning signs to say that the past should be left buried.

    Seconds to Live kicks off with the most dangerous scenario a US Marshal could face – someone’s hacked the database containing information on witness locations. US Marshal Taylor Mills teams up with an elite cyber-crimes investigative team to stop a hacker known as Phantom

  • Smoke Screen

    Definitely move Smoke Screen to the number one spot on your TBR list. The complex characters and small town secrets will keep readers hooked until the very end.

  • One Final Breath (Dive Team Investigations Book #3)

    The whole series brings suspense and action, while giving readers a swoon-worthy love story in the process. Gabe and Anissa both have a past that makes them gun-shy in the relationship department, but it’s been clear through three novels that they like each other. The tension builds as Gabe and Anissa both have to run for their lives while solving a murder and a 13 year old cold case.

    The Gryphon Heist isn’t a novel, it’s a wild, action-packed thrill ride. James R. Hannibal writes a thriller that weaves an intricate story-line with memorable yet quirky characters, plus all the high-tech spy tools readers can nerd out to.

  • Vow of Justice

    The fourth in the Blue Justice series, Vow of Justice gives readers Linc St. John’s story. If you are a fan of the series, Vow of Justice hits the mark in suspense, action and intriguing plot, just like all of the other novels in the series!

    Lisa Harris brings the suspense and action! I’ve been a fan for a long time, and her latest novel, Deadly Intentions, delivers high speed thrilling action, an intriguing plot line, and memorable characters.

  • Whose Waves These Are

    The author has an amazing way with words that draw you into the story and overwhelm all of your senses. Set in a small coastal town of Maine, the scenery and small-town characters creates a world I want to live in.

  • Synapse

    Steven James brings the futuristic suspense with Synapse. Set thirty years into the future, the novel explores the concept of how much artificial intelligent will change (or should change) our lives. Human-like Artificials become members of society.

  • Top 10: Favorite Characters in Suspense (Part 1)

    Here’s my recommendation for novels with memorable characters. The heroines that stand up under immeasurable pressures to save the day. The heroes who get the bad guys off off the street and save the day. The characters that run towards danger when everyone else flees.

  • Strands of Truth

    Strands of Truth is a fast-pace dramatic story, with a plot as unique as its characters and setting. Set in three time periods, the story connects past murders to the present in a way that only Colleen Coble could pull off.
