Four Stars

From the Ashes is the third and final book in the Ashes to Ashes Series by Rowena Holloway. This psychological thriller had me hooked from the very first page. It was full of twists and turns. I just couldn’t put it down. I would highly recommend you read this series in order. You will love the wild ride. Charlotte is such an interesting lead character, and the plot was so detailed it had me guessing throughout. If you love a great thriller, this is the book/series for you.

Less You Know: gripping suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 2) By Rowena Holloway. Once again I’m taken on quite the roller coaster ride with a story that kept me guessing. The author knows how to keep the readers completely entranced in the story. The attention to all details is amazing. The characters are complex and relatable and you truly feel like you’re on this journey with them. I got completely caught up and couldn’t put it down until the end. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I’m giving this book a five star review and can’t wait to read more from this author.

Less You Know: gripping suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 2)
By Rowena Holloway

This book captured my attention from the beginning and kept me engaged throughout. As soon as I started this story the action started and then came the twists and turns and kept me guessing. This book can be read as a standalone but it’s my recommendation that you read the first book in this series. The author does an awesome job taking me on a thrilling ride as she weaves a very detailed and vivid story so much so that you feel like you are right there experiencing all the danger and suspenseful moments. There are wonderful characters in this series, some you will love and some you will hate. This is truly a great read. I highly recommend this book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Less You Know is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes by Rowena Holloway. This gripping psychological suspense was another thrilling page-turning read. The author has this method to keep the reader engaged in the story with the perfectly tuned details. I enjoyed the character growth seen in Charlotte from the previous book in the series. The additional characters shared in this second novel, such as Allie, were wonderful. I thoroughly loved the suspense, the mystery in this story. It was filled to the brim begging me to continue to see where the author was leading me and the characters. I typically am not one to read these type of stories, but Rowena Holloway has woven a compelling story within the series that is a must read for any suspense lover.

I give Less You Know: gripping suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 2) by Rowena Holloway, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from book one of the series.*

Charlotte is still feeling the loss of her mentor and the murder of the man that could have broken a story wide open for her. But she has gained a really good friend and things are going well with her boyfriend. That is until she decides to change her plans over Christmas. She goes off with her boyfriend and blows off the dinner she was supposed to attend at Allie’s. Biggest mistake of her life. After not hearing from Allie for a few days afterwards, she goes to her place, only to find it ransacked and Allie missing. Is this all tied to the man she had been investigating? Or is there more to Allie than what appears? Is Charlotte in over her head?

This is a great book full of suspense. Charlotte has grown since book one, and it is great to see her come into herself more. Plus we learn more about who she really is and her past. Plus we learn so much more about Allie. She was introduced to us in book one, but this book is all about her. As fitting for the series, there is so much going on, you won’t get all of the angles until the very end. It keeps you in the edge of your seat. It is not necessary really to read book one, but you will understand more if you do.

If you are a fan of suspense and strong female characters, this book is for you.

4-stars

Less You Know by Rowena Holloway is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes series, this is a series I would highly recommend reading in order as this book follows directly where Bad Things Happen, book 1, left off. This is a wonderful suspense read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole way through. It’s intricate, twisted, shocking, mysterious and very suspenseful, all the detail and the many POV’s made this a truly entertaining read!

With it’s action-packed and fast paced storyline I was able to read this book in one sitting as I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading, there was always something going on that easily held my attention. I look forward to continuing this series in the future!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Less You Know is the second book in Rowena Holloway’s Ashes to Ashes series. I have to admit I was biting at the bit to read this story. I will warn you make sure you read Bad Things Happen as this is the first book in the series and it lays the ground work for Less You Know. Rowena Holloway has a way of weaving a web of a story because one never knows what is going on until you are in the web. This is a psychological thriller, suspense, danger, secrets, and lots of twists and turns. There were several times that I was totally off base in my thinking and replayed the story in my head to just imagine what happened. That to me makes the story a great read. If you can be directed in one way of your thoughts of what is going on just to be slapped in the head because you totally missed it makes me seek out other stories by Rowena Holloway because she ranks high in my author’s I love.

Briefly Charlotte Ashe is up to it again. She is investigating again this time with her friend Allie. Charlotte did not realize there were secrets in Allie’s life that come out and takes Charlotte back. Charlotte does not know what to do but she is sure of one thing, she needs to find Allie and get everything out in the open.

Less You Know (Ashes to Ashes #2)Less You Know by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Less You Know is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes series by Rowena Holloway. This is quite a gripping suspense, with drama, mystery, danger, secrets, action, discoveries, twists, intrigue, and lots of tension.
We met Charlotte Ashe in the previous book- and once again follow her on her latest ‘investigation’. Her journalistic senses drive her to try to prove Tyrone Garner, former football star, now turned property developer, and all-round Mr. Popular- is actually a huge fraud.
She, along with her friend Allie, engage in some reconnaissance in order to uncover ‘evidence’. But Allie has secrets of her own, and when she disappears, Charlotte not only feels guilty for placing her friend in danger, but will also need to get to the bottom of everything, putting all the pieces together. Secrets will be revealed. Questions will be raised. Charlotte will be tested, and left questioning everything she thought she knew.
This story is definitely clever, edge of your seat reading. I was immediately hooked and couldn’t put it down until I’d read every word. As I expected, another great read from this talented author!

Thank you, Ms. Holloway!

Bad Things Happen (Ashes to Ashes – Book 1) by Rowena Holloway – Review by Melissa Agena

Bad Things Happen (Ashes to Ashes, #1)Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was surprisingly pleased with this book! I didn’t know what to expect but I’m so glad I read this book! Bad Things Happen is Book 1 in the Ashes to Ashes series by Rowena Holloway. This story follows Joey Baptiste, who is a professional football (Soccer) player that has witnessed a major crime. This story also follows Charlotte Ashe. She is a weather girl on television trying to become a true crime reporter. Charlotte gets lucky when Joey comes to her with this crime, but Charlotte has no idea what she’s getting into. Her job and life is on the line and Joey is trusting her with everything. Now it’s up to Charlotte to uncover the whole truth behind Joey’s story. Can she do it? I guess you will have to see! I did like the way that the author grabbed you and continued to keep you in suspense the whole time. To be truthful, it was a little bit difficult to keep track of the timeline. Other than that…I loved the characters and the well to be honest the British language! I truly do love books based in the U.K. Things tend to be a bit more forward and raw. The humor is hysterical and I loved how Charlotte is completely focused on her work and doing well at her job. She is determined to prove everyone wrong and prove that she can do the job! I love when the female lead is strong and learns to come into her own.
