Romantic Military Thriller For Review

Fox Among Wolves
By Rowanna Green
Published: June 2014
Genre: Romantic Military Thriller, Contemporary Women's Fiction, British Mystery, Romantic Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: pdf, kindle

Ginny’s dad had great advice about facing devils head on.

‘Think about the worst thing that could happen and figure out why you’re afraid. Get past that and the rest is easy.’

There was no doubt about her worst fear. Alone in a house with six men, all of whom had just ogled her naked body, it was a complete no-brainer.

When Ginny’s Saturday night bath is interrupted, and her uncle’s house is invaded by the supposed victims of a car crash, the outcome might appear predictable. But nothing is as expected, including the uncle she thought she knew. Ginny endures their attentions as each one is distracted from their covert task, but she seems to have fallen for the rottenest apple in this particular barrel.

With a spicing of international intrigue, blackmail and a bent ex-soldier, Ginny needs every ounce of wit and courage to survive the long weekend of simmering tensions.

Mystery/Suspense For Review

The Faithful
By S.M. Freedman
Published: April 2014
ISBN: 978-1497330009
Genre: ystery/Thriller/Suspense
Formats Available For Review: pdf

For Agent Josh Metcalf, memories are ghosts. They are blood-soaked backpacks and the smell of strawberry Chap Stick. Josh is haunted by a little girl who went missing his first summer on the force. Decades later his search has become an obsession, and he’s pinned the photos of hundreds of missing children to his wall of tears. All the children had psychic abilities. All the cases went cold -- with no witnesses, no useful tips, and no children ever recovered. Until a woman gets injured trying to stop an abduction, and Josh comes face to face with his personal ghost.

For Rowan Wilson, a meteorite hunter for NASA’s Spaceguard program, memories are lies. The childhood she thought she knew has been erased, leaving a black hole in its place. New recollections are flaring to life: men dressed like priests, a ranch in the mountains, mind control, and rape. Each new memory draws her closer to one of the other missing children, Sumner Macey; and to I Fidele, the underground organization for whom kidnapping is just the beginning.

For Sumner, memories have become weapons. He’s sharpened each of his with surgical precision: the ranch, the doctrine, the mind-wash, and the murders. He’s eager to slice at the black sludge pumping through I Fidele’s heart, desperate to cripple those who stole his childhood.

To I Fidele, non-psychics are cockroaches in need of extermination, an inferior species destroying the earth. They’re ready to enforce eugenics on a global scale. If they succeed, only those faithful to their doctrine will survive.

An Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-Finalist and Bestseller, THE FAITHFUL has been hailed as an “edge of your seat mystery” by IndieReader, as “undeniably a great book” by Readers’ Favorite, and Publishers Weekly says “this work reveals fiery intellect.”

For a Fee of Two Shillings
By Faye Whittaker
ISBN: 978-1456578398
Genre: Historical Mystery
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities available to qualified reviewers/bloggers only), kindle

Fate weaves its tricky threads amongst the garment of intrigue and mystery shrouding Miri, a beautiful young Maori woman. Her attempt to materialize her childhood obsession and fantasy to be other than she is, only serves to create a mantle of despair to hover over her life. Her choices, and her mistakes, impact upon her children’s lives as well as those she unwittingly influences.  

These adults are confronted by their own personal weaknesses, and they are given cause to examine their religious and spiritual beliefs, their family relationships, as well as the cultural expectations, bigotry and prejudice, accepted as the norm within pre and post World War II New Zealand society.
