Comment by Fuentes on Sunday


From the beginning, I liked that the reader is able to know the identity of the serial killer. This helped to get into his head and see his interactions with others. He really likes to play with fire, manipulating people.

Approaching Menace by June Shaw

Mystery 189 pages $5.99

Josie Aspen gladly gave up a career path to move to the Gulf Coast to help with her sickly little brother. Her phobia of bad weather means being ever-fearful of hurricanes, but possible storms aren’t as scary as a killer who is attacking young women in the area.

As Josie's brother's condition worsens, their mother reveals she is much more erratic than Josie ever imagined, and the man Josie plans to marry shows signs that he may be hiding something terrible.

As a powerful storm turns toward their coast and the body count rises, Josie will need to face her terrors if she is to keep her little brother alive.

About Author June Shaw:

June Shaw lives along a lazy bayou in south Louisiana. She became a young widow with five children, completed a college degree, and started teaching junior high students. Then her deferred dream of becoming a writer took hold.

Between grading papers and being involved in her growing children's activities, she sold stories and learned to write plays. She won a playwriting contest in Boston, and two of her short plays were produced Off-Off Broadway. A short screenplay she wrote aired on a channel for the arts in New Orleans.

She eventually worked on novels, became a grandmother, and then sold Relative Danger, which received excellent reviews. Deadly Ink nominated it for their new David award for Best Mystery of the Year. Harlequin reprinted it, and Books in Motion bought audio rights.

June represented Louisiana on the board of the southwest chapter of Mystery Writers of America for two years. When June is not writing, she enjoys reading, swimming, fishing, dancing, traveling, meeting new people, and being with her friends and large family.

How to Purchase Approaching Menace:

Approaching Menace is only $5.99 direct from The Untreed Reads Store, available in EPUB, PDF and Kindle formats. You can also pick up this nail-biter at Amazon, Apple and everywhere else ebooks are sold, as well as at your local library.

Curse The Moon - Cold War Rising by Lee Jackson

Curse The Moon - Cold War Rising by Author Lee Jackson 'a thrilling story filled with a lot more than adventure and action, it's filled with a surge of emotion and an intense amount of hope' reviews My Side Of Life

"Ready for some fast passed adventure and an exciting thriller? Curse The Moon by Lee Jackson is it ! From the first page you are thrown into troubling times right smack dab in the middle of the Cold War in Cuba.

Atcho is his code name, driven by his love for his country and even more for his family we meet a man that takes us right into the thick of things. While leading guerrilla fighters Atcho is captured and cast into the darkened dungeons where he fears the worst is to come, and he's right. The worst has yet to come for him. As the book goes on you are taken back by the struggles and hardships endured by the Cubans and those around them , really getting a feel of what was going on during those times.

Throughout the book Atcho's spirit is never once broken though. It was really inspiring to read actaully, you've got this man fighting for his life , fighting for his family, struggling through so much and yet the fight is still inside of him. The power behind this man shines through and the characters come to life on the pages. It really grabbed me from the start. You question whether he'll make it through to the end, if he can keep going and pull through or no which kept me on the edge of my seat anticipating what may happen next. Curse The Moon is a thrilling story filled with a lot more than adventure and action, it's filled with a surge of emotion and an intense amount of hope and that I really couldn't walk away from.

This was done so well, I really couldn't put the book down and look forward to reading more from Lee Jackson. If you enjoy a great plot with an incredibly well drawn adventure this book is for you. You won't be disappointed."
