My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is quite the murder mystery story! It was a bit of a struggle at first. Once we met the neighbors the story started taking off. It was fast paced and I couldn’t put it down. Everything thing was woven in highlight the good and bad so I never could figure out who done it. Very well done!

This is my first book by this author. I enjoyed her story telling. It easily kept my interest and the characters were riveting.

I love a good whodunit, suspense filled ride. And boy what a ride this one was! I was immediately hooked and mesmerized by the storyline. The characters were engaging and relatable. Moore certainly provided a fast paced thrill ride for her readers, one that any murder/mystery lover will in fact delight in. Loved it from beginning to end!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Somebody in the Neighborhood by Judy Moore is full of surprises and is a mystery thriller with lots of twists and turns. There is murder and drama, fear and secrets. The characters are a little different and complex but well developed. The story gets you right from the beginning and slowly draws you in to the web of whodunit, where everyone seems to have interesting things to say about their neighbours. It is mainly set in south Florida where the neighbours seem nice but each have their own secrets to hide and each of them may be the killer. I loved Dorothy the oldest of the neighbours she cracked me up and I really wanted to stamp on Dawn’s mother, she got my goat up but that shows that Judy did a good job in writing them.

Dawn decides it time to leave the place that has been her home for 25 years. She needs a fresh start and definitely a new boss. When she sees her aunt’s house for the first time since she was murdered she decides this is where she wants to be. Dawn meets her neighbours and quickly learns there are some secrets they don’t want to share and some of them are quick to point their fingers.

Dawn’s fears soon become reality as the murderer comes to light but an unlikely hero comes to her rescue. When things settle down Dawn is given some truths that may change her life.

I enjoyed the story which will keep most guessing right to the end. I must admit I did work out who did it but it was still interesting to see if I was right or wrong because you never know what little twists and turns an author may add.

Somebody in the neighborhood is the type of mystery that has you questioning everyone. Dawn the niece of a murder victim decides to take residence in her aunts home located in a small Oceanside town Manatee Beach. Dawn has and uneasy feeling from the first night she moves in. Her next door neighbor is a recluse who only comes out at night a sort of Boo Radley character. Then a hooded figure is outside her window one night makes her question whether the neighbors that were so welcoming could be responsible for her aunts murder. I read through this book so quickly. The plot was intriguing and before I could figure out who the killer was it revealed. I will definitely be reading more of Judy Moore and I am excited to see what she writes next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a page turner, who done it kind of story. It is a well developed story that I read in one sitting. It is engaging and the characters made the story realistic. I enjoyed how the characters are connectable, relateable and watching the growth of the story. You have three murders, who will be next is anyone’s guess. When I thought I had it figured out, another twist was added to the plot. I highly recommend this suspense, mystery story and find out for yourself who is the murderer.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Somebody in the Neighborhood by Judy Moore is a thrilling/mystery book. It is a story that pulled me in and had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. The author creates an atmosphere of suspense that will stay with you the entire story. I enjoyed both the storyline and reading about the character of Dawn Anderson. She is a young woman who has come to live at Manatee Beach after her aunt is murdered. She is looking to be out on her own. Dawn is an intelligent and kind person. She soon begins to socialize with those who live in the neighborhood. Who could have murdered her aunt? Is that person part of the neighborhood? Is Dawn also in danger? Read this book to find out. This is the second book that I have read by the author and I have found her to have the gift of crafting an amazing story. She kept me guessing until the end. Besides Dawn, there are several other characters that are introduced. Some of them are very kind and welcoming to Dawn and others I found myself wondering about. Don’t miss out on a mystery that you will not want to put down until the final page. I highly recommend reading it.

Evil Sushi (Evil Sushi Series Book 1) by C.A King – Review by Anna Hirsch

Evil Sushi (Evil Sushi Series Book 1) by C.A King
4 Stars

I have read many novels by C.A King and loved them all. This book was weird but in a good way. The concept was so original, I loved it. The story takes place some time in the future. Humans saved the animals and the climate but destroyed the ecosystem under our oceans. By not eating meat, people overfished to compensate and now there are barely any fish left. In a small town on the Eastern Coast, two fishermen trudge out to sea in hopes of catching something to at least feed their family. What happens next will definitely take you by surprise. Excitement soon turns to trepidation and eventually leads to horror. With everything happening in the world today, can this be a possibility in our world? Although the book is fictional, it does make you think. Looking forward to seeing what happens in part two.

The Devil’s Prayer
By: Luke Gracias
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias is a book in the horror genre. It is one that had me turning pages. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I enjoyed reading about the main character of Siobhan Russo. Siobhan’s mother had disappeared six years ago, and she was left with responsibilities and questions. Now those questions have only grown as her mother has committed suicide. Determined to find out the truth behind her mother’s disappearance and suicide she travels to the convent where her mother lived. There she finds a final confession from her mother, Denise, and pages that are part of The Devil’s Prayer. What will Siobhan learn when she reads her mother’s confession? Will she find all of the answers that she is seeking? What do the pages of The Devil’s Prayer reveal? Siobhan has also found herself being pursued by extremist monks who want the pages she has found back. Will they be successful, or will Siobhan escape their grasp? Read this book to find out. This story has scenes of action and danger. It is thrilling and suspenseful. I had to remind myself to breathe. Siobhan’s mother was also a very interesting and intriguing character. I was appalled and angry at what she went through, however, I at times questioned the actions that she took. The story also has other additional characters. Some of them help and some are only out for themselves. I enjoyed reading about the part that each one played in the book and their interactions with Siobhan. This is a story that had chills going up and down my spine and found I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the final page. Highly recommended.

Cover Designer – Jeff Wade
Publisher – Wade Publishing
A heinous nightmare brings Frank bolting upright in bed. Except he’s not in bed. His forehead meets what feels like ten million tons of solid rock. Where is he? How did he get here? He senses something terrible has happened, but what? Sleep steals over him again—and another terrible dream offers more pieces of the puzzle.
The nightmares continue.
More clues are revealed.
But as his amnesia fades, so does his sanity.

~ AMAZON ~

Jeff Wade is a grandmaster and instructor of Taekwondo and wrote the novel Drawer #7, the novella Finding Nowhere, and the short story Dread. He was the Crabb Writing Award winner at Belmont University in Nashville. With over three decades practicing and teaching martial arts, and an extensive background in firearms and gunsmithing, Wade’s writing depicts action scenes with uncanny authenticity. But his stories reach far deeper than that. He has also studied psychology, which he applies both on the mat and on the page. His characters are loaded with ticks and quirks that breathe life into them. The scenarios in which they find themselves are not only difficult, but often heart-wrenching. While his themes tend to the dark side, they are gilded with light. The characters–and the reader–are posed tough questions. Perplexing scenarios. Moral dilemmas. All with a hint of dark humor. Jeff Wade lives in Miami with his wife Chikako, four kids, his dog Lucy, a bunny named Jojo, and a chicken named Mary.
