  • 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.

  • Best in Intense Suspense

    Here’s to the serial killer plot lines. The stories that keep us reading all night long because you have to read every last word to get to the end. Otherwise you’ll never sleep. Some suspense novels bring intensity to a whole new level, with intricate plots that will stick in your mind long after you put the book down.

  • Fatal Strike

    While plenty of action, the book feels like a ride along with the two detectives. Fatal Strike follows Leah and Jon, and readers get to put together clues right along side of them.

  • Kindle Unlimited: Suspense

    I love Kindle Unlimited, but sometimes I feel like I don’t read enough from its selection to make it work the extra $9.95 a month. So I’m making valid attempts each month to rotate some KU novels into my TBR list.

  • The Yellow Lantern

    e Yellow Lantern by Angie Dicken is another in the True Crimes series that focuses on historical crimes in America. Set in the early 1800’s, this story deals with the criminal activity of grave robbers stealing bodies in the middle of the night.

  • The Killing Tide

    I’ve never read a novel where the characters face one life threatening situation after another. There are drug lords, murders, explosions, shoot-outs, conspiracies, underwater attacks, poisonous snakes, you name it, Dani Pettrey throws it at Gabby and Finn and the rest of the investigation team!

  • Fire Storm

    Fire Storm delves deeper into Kaley’s character, and readers see her internal struggles with her relationships, especially with her mom but also Noah. How can she trust anyone after her tumultuous past?

  • Fragments of Fear

    Readers become engrossed in Tavish’s pursuit for justice and will root for as she tries to navigate a world that is very different than the life she’s led. The author gives an interesting perspective into the way others see Tavish versus how she sees herself.

  • Cold Aim

    I definitely would check out Cold Aim for this summer’s new release. If you haven‘t started the series, there’s no better time to start than right now since Cold Aim comes out 7/9.

  • Storm Rising

    If you are a fan of gut-wrenching adrenaline-fueled non-stop action and suspense, then this book has to be number one on your summer TBR list.
