Psychological Mystery For Review

The Mercy
By Barbara DeShong
Published: August 2015
ISBN: 978-0692492123
Pages: 316
Genre: Psychological Thriller, Mystery

Suicide doesn’t happen in good families. Never when both parents are mental health professionals. But it did. Convinced the suicide was her fault, psychologist Jessica LeFave is immobilized with guilt. And now her best friend, the one who asked to speak with her last night and Jessica put off, is found murdered, her body on an altar to Santa Muerte. While the police insist her death is one more drug-trafficking casualty, Jessica believes the murder is connected to Camilla’s emotional instability or her work with child prostitutes in Mexico City’s infamous La Merced. She collects her off-the-bubble sidekick lawyer and heads over the border where she teams up with the gorgeous and exciting dedicated ‘revolutionary’ she met on her friend’s wedding weekend. Jessica has no idea that her search will reveal a shocking secret and mark her for death.

Psychological Suspense/Thriller For Review

Broken Flowers
By Howard A. Finkelstein
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0692480922
Pages: 100
Genre: Psychological Fiction/Thriller

A dramatic psychological suspense/thriller about the devastating consequences of drug addiction, Broken Flowers is a powerful story about brokenness, healing, and hope.

Dr. Mary Crawford is a fifty-year-old psychotherapist operating a successful practice in Los Angeles. Noted for her addiction assistance and suicide prevention techniques, she leads group therapy sessions with addicts in the throes of recovery.

During one particular session, she is called upon for a case involving an extremely depressed fifteen-year-old girl who was the victim of a violent rape and has survived a suicide attempt. The daughter of a noted brain surgeon, the troubled teen becomes the doctor’s private patient.

But on a day when the young girl spirals into a suicidal depression, she is unable to reach the doctor and successfully ends her own life. When the girl’s father discovers the circumstances of his daughter’s suicide—as well as the real truth behind the doctor’s mysterious absence—he vows to destroy the doctor at all costs. Now Dr. Crawford’s life hangs in the balance, and her only hope for survival is the broken people around her.

Thrillers by Marshall Chamberlain are unique—jam-packed with suspense, mystery, and excitement, sprinkled with sci-fi and paranormal, and run like raging rivers. If you have enjoyed Indiana Jones, or books by Nelson DeMille, or James Rollin’s “Sigma Force,” you will love Chamberlain’s techno-thrillers!

Being a writer and working in solitude to create your story brings out a number of emotions. From fear and anxiety in wondering if the story good enough where readers will be engaged by it? And guilt about not spending more time with family. The interview with Diane J. Wilson shows her thoughts on that topic and how she makes writing work for her schedule. Read her story at

A good vacation delivers you home alive.
This is not a good vacation.

Without her knowledge, Owen texts his best buddy, Daryl, to join the getaway. The three of them aren’t alone in the backwoods of Georgia, though.

Owen took something that didn’t belong to him. Something that changed their lives. And now the owner wants it back. By any means -- including a posse led by a killer dog.

At first, Rayanne is clueless about the item and its value. One thing becomes crystal clear: If it’s not returned, they might not make it home alive.

Crime Thriller For Review

Heavy Hour
By Patrick Brown
Publisher: Peachtree Corners Press
Published: September 2015
ISBN: 978-0986254925
Pages: 309
Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Mystery, Action/Adventure

From the author of the suspense thriller, VARIED TRAITS, comes the sequel, HEAVY HOUR!

Four teenagers form a bond during a hot Atlanta summer. Ten years later, a tragic event takes place during a swanky Midtown wedding reception. When the police come up empty in the search for a vicious killer, Salem Reid is summoned to investigate by a stripper whom he has recently saved from a murderous group of thugs. Reid can’t say no to a friend in need, so he puts his business on hold while he plunges into the case.

As Reid looks into the victim’s past, the motivation for the brutal murder and the identity of the predator are slowly revealed. But the killer remains elusive. As the story unfolds, a cast of characters emerges—from a beautiful young widow to a bevy of streetwalkers, from young professionals to a mentally challenged boy—all who assist Salem Reid in his search for the killer.

HEAVY HOUR leads us on a journey into an urban underworld of prostitution, pornography, and sexual deviance that author Patrick Brown describes in graphic detail. Following up from the prequel, VARIED TRAITS, we are rocketed into a world where we might be afraid to venture outside…or stay in, as the case may be.

Mystery/Suspense From NYT Bestselling Author Joni Rodgers For Review

The Hurricane Lover
By Joni Rodgers
Publisher: Stella Link Books
ISBN: 9780983339243
ASIN: B00695CO7M
Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Action/Adventure
Formats Available for Review: epub/ebook, mobi/kindle

During the record-smashing hurricane season of 2005, a firebrand meteorologist and an ambitious journalist come together to catch a con artist who uses chaos as cover for identity theft and murder. A deadly game of cat and mouse unfolds alongside their stormy love affair, complicated by polarized politics, high-strung Southern families, a full-on media circus, and the worst disaster management goat screw in US history.

As Hurricane Katrina howls toward the ill-prepared city of New Orleans, Dr. Corbin Thibodeaux, a Gulf Coast climatologist and storm risk specialist, preaches the gospel of evacuation, weighed down by the fresh public memory of a spectacularly false alarm a year earlier. Meanwhile, Shay Hoovestahl, a puff piece reporter for the local news, stumbles on the story of a con artist who uses storm-related chaos as cover for identity theft and murder. Laying a trap to expose the killer, Shay drags Corbin into her agenda, which goes horribly awry as the city's infrastructure crumbles.

The Hurricane Lover is a fast-paced tale of two cities, two families, and two desperate people seeking shelter from the storm.

NYT bestselling author/ghostwriter Joni Rodgers, who lives on the Gulf Coast, writes knowingly about the dramatic megastorms, weaving in her own firsthand experience, authentic meteorology, transcripts of actual emails sent and received by FEMA director Michael Brown (later released through the Freedom of Information Act), and the riveting personal stories she heard while volunteering with relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

As a reader (and reviewer) I am always on the search for an author that changes things up, goes away from the norm and introduces something new into a genre. In the past year, for me, that author is Alex Marwood and her novel The Killer Next Door. Check out my Author Interview & Giveaway (US) with her
