My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moves by John Michaels tells the story of Robert Jake, Disc Jockey and former military man. Having survived an attack that killed 18 of his men in a war zone all Jake is trying to do is live a normal life, doing his job and taking care of his teenaged daughter. Unfortunately, the death of a District Attorney and two women change the course of his life. Is the killer trying to pin the murders on Jake or is the killer trying to protect Jake using a sadistic game of chess?
Moves is the first book I have read by this author and while I was confused in the beginning this story dragged me in to it in no time flat. I’m glad I took a chance and now I have one more author to add to my one click buy list.

MOVES is the first book I’ve read by John Michaels. I picked it up and put it down a few times because of the space I was in; I didn’t feel like reading something I had to put too much thought into.

This is one of those stories that you think you know, you think you know how it is all going to flesh out and while reading, things change – just a tiny bit, but it changes the way you look at things.

This story is told in present and past pov so the story unfolds in a very non-linear way that makes total sense. The writing flows naturally and the character development is on point. This was a real page turner and I will go back and read it again to find the nuances and see if it changes my view point.

I absolutely recommend this story.

My knuckles are still clenched! This heart pounding thriller simply didn’t stop. Twists and turns, fantastic detail. I fell head first into the story and couldn’t tear myself away. What an excellent book! I hope to read more from this author very soon.

Moves by John Michaels got me with the synopsis and refused to let me go. I knew I was going to like this book almost as soon as I started reading it, what I didnt know was how much I was going to like it. It exceeded all expectations.

There are lots of moving parts and people in this book, at first I was like, anothernew character? How many more will there be? But as I got deeper into the story I realized how important each and every one of them was.

Robert Jake is great but his daughter Rose was amazing, reminded me a lot of both of my girls. She was great at cutting the tension with a quick comment and made me laugh more than once.

This was a great suspenseful experience and I’m so glad I spent my time with these characters. I suggest you give it a read and keep an eye for more books by Mr. Michaels, I hope to see more from him in the future.

Moves by John Michaels was an amazing book that had me on the edge of my seat. I cannot believe this was his first book, it was a mystery thriller, that competes with top sellers in its genre. In the beginning, it was a lot of characters and stories that didn’t seem to fit together. I love how it was several pieces of the puzzle, and they slowly connected, until it was all one story by the end. The back story and connections with all the characters was done with precision. I was even more impressed that I didn’t figure out the killer until the very end. It kept me guessing and wondering all the way through. I didn’t want to put the book down. Highly recommend it, and hope Michaels continues writing!

Moves by John Michaels is an excellent thriller with amazing characters. I was extremely impressed with the authors writing style and how well the story flows. I could not put this novel down. I was glued to the story from page one. I loved that the main setting was in the Dallas Texas area. John and Jake were amazing and wow how it ended. I absolutely loved this book and I highly recommend it!

A mixture of single parent meets thriller, action,and ending with? Well heck you will need to read this book to find out what else happens.

Robert Jake is a single father, works as a radio personality. Although he struggles with depression. As a Special Forces commander. Under his watch, he lost 18 soldiers followed by the loss of his wife. His daughter is a little of both her parents, mom’s DNA and his love for flying. So the mystery begins…….

John Michael’s story is one that you can’t put down. His story starts on page one, mystery begins. He will keep you involved as well as on the edge of your seat. There is no safe place to stop reading. So grab your chocolate, drinks and book. For you are in for the long haul. I love how John Michael’s sets his stage. His character’s are well suited for this story, could even be your friends. That’s how real this story is. John Michaels is a new author for me, I can guarantee I will be looking for more from him. Keep the books coming John Michaels! I need so much more!

Moves by John Michaels a four-star read that will put the moves on. This is a totally new author to me, I will admit I was entranced by the cover, I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this one intrigued me, there is a lot going on it looked almost like a puzzle in itself, so I figured why not give it a try and it didn’t disappoint. Robert Jake will make you feel his everything, he is such a well written character that he makes the story, there were a couple of points that didn’t ring with me so I gave it a four, but I am not sure with another reading if this will be re-starred. I have put it on my re-read pile so who knows.

Moves by John Michaels is my first book by this author. The summary is what intrigued me the most. The plot line is engaging as it keeps you on the edge of your seat at times. The characters are fully developed and personable. Michaels understands the single parent angle and what I enjoyed about this story is the relationship between Robert and his daughter. Little girls need their dads in the picture and that is what really sold me on the story. Robert has some demons in his closet from the tour in Iraq but nothing like being home and have your wife murdered. Robert has his young daughter to look after and if that is not enough, he will have to be strong for her. Will Robert prevail? Will Robert figure what is going on in time?
