Four Stars

Matching Mariam is an intriguing suspense thriller with a side of romance thrown in by Mya O’Malley. This is not my first book by Mya, but it is my favorite. This book hooked me on the first page and I read this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. The characters are strong and relatable. The storyline is amazing and gave me the impression that I was there with Mariam. This book was full of twist that had me guessing what would happen next. I highly recommend this book especially if you are a suspense thriller fan.

It has been a good while since i have read a psychological thriller and it was brilliant. It is full of suspense, romance and murder. Miriam is trying to solve the biggest case of her career by trying to hunt down a serial killer. But When Jesse walks back in to her life she must try and keep her head in the game and crack the case. I really hope Miriam will have more books i really enjoyed this one and i would like to see her working more cases in New York.

When you are on the biggest case of your life, in walks a complication to life. Will Miriam be able to concentrate on her job as well as trying to understand were her lover fits into her life.

Miriam is a sassy, independent woman who is a tough New York cop, but when she is given the biggest case of her life she puts 110% into finding the decades old serial killer. As she investigates a lot of herself is drawn into the case and will she have anything left to try and sort her heart out from years ago.

Jesse has had his fair share of broken hearts but the one that has really hurt him the most, is the person he hopes he may be able to avoid with his new job in New York but when they do finally meet all the feels come flooding back even stronger but will be able to break the wall around his heart and give love a second chance.

I have to say that all the books by this author hit the mark and are well written and the characters are excellently developed and this book does not disappoint. I loved the glance’s of Miriam in the Maggie Series but never thought she would be brought to her full glory in her own book.

The chemistry between Jesse and Miriam from their first interaction has you salivating that this will be a full emotional encounter and they really compliment each other perfectly, then add in the suspense and thrilling storyline of the serial killer within the story and this leaves you wanting more, with questions that are still circling around in my head.

I would love to read more stories evolving Miriam and fingers crossed more will be released in the future. This is a great thriller with twists and turns and a great book you can’t put it down.

Matching Miriam by Mya O’Malley is a contemporary romance. It has a little of everything, a little crime and murder, a lot of suspense and throw in some paranormal to give it a bit of spice. In true Mya fashion she gives us a read that is engrossing and easy to get lost in when trying to escape reality. Just when you think you have it worked out Mya throws you for a loop and sends you in a completely different route.

Her ex is back in town but catching a killer is Miriam’s main objective even if it means her life.

This was one of those books that you can sit and read, while drinking a cup of coffee, and get lost in the story.
Miriam is a detective in New York. She has been given a recent murder case that seems as though it could be the work of a serial killer. Miriam is dedicated to her job, and running, because it allows her mind to be clear and keep her past out. However, her past will be more than in her mind when her first love reappears in her life once again. She must focus on her case, though, because her best friend believes she is in danger.
Jesse is starting his new job as a firefighter in New York and is hoping to see Miriam once again so he can get the closure he never got. However, once reunited, instead of closure there is a spark of hope. He wants to be the man to keep Miriam safe…but from what? Or who?
There is so much going on in this story…the chasing of a killer, a man who can’t seem to get over a relationship that was just at the beginning stages, a best friend who talks to ghosts and sees the future, and an encounter with a ghost that has Jesse opening his eyes to believing in spirits.
This book was enjoyable and I finished it all in one sitting. I needed to know what was going to happen. I was pulled in by the spiritual elements. Over, a good story.

I loved this story. I have read several books by this author but this is by fair my favourite. It contains elements I love in a book, romance, murder mystery and paranormal. I especially loved how the author leads you to think the murderer is one person to then switch it around and keep you guessing.

Miriam is a police officer. She is a strong confident women in her job but in her relationships she is closed off. All due to having the love of her life break her heart years ago. She closed herself off and couldn’t trust again.

Jesse is the love of her Miriam’s life and he returns to their home town looking for closer. What he doesn’t expect is for their connection to be as strong as it was all those years ago.

Miriam has a lot going on in her life though. With a murderer on the loose and having her as a target she can’t be distracted by these emotions and feelings.

Will they realise they are meant to be? Will Miriam be able to solve the case before she becomes a victim? And who along the way will make an appearance to help guide them?

I was so stinking excited to get my hands on Matching Miriam by Mya O’Malley. I loved her books featuring paranormal and grit with Naomi and was even more stoked to see her pop up in this novel. I knew this was going to be a story that consumed my energy and time as I read it so I curled up with a good drink and blanket and dove right in. It was wonderful, more than I had hoped following Miriam as she found her way through this stage of her life. This book included more of the mystery with Miriam being a detective. I liked the undertones of romance between her and the ex that comes back into her life at the worst possible time, or best, depending on how you look at it. I loved how I literally could not put this down until I knew how things would unfold and finally end up for Miriam. I hope and pray we get more of her because this book was amazing and I really fell in love with the characters. If mystery is your thing with some hints of romance this is a read you won’t want to miss!

As a pretty new to me author, I am kicking myself for waiting so long to read her books. I am getting there slowly but this book, if I wasn’t already planning on reading her collection, this one would have made me run to one click everything.
I was hooked, the characters, the storyline, the chemistry, just everything was amazing with this story. As I haven’t read much of this author, i was able to read this as a standalone but do see Miriam is in other books so I wasn’t left feeling like I was missing anything.

I highly recommend this! Wow!

Matching Miriam by Mya O’Malley is a gripping story with characters that are so strong you won’t be able to stop reading! Although we are introduced to Miriam in other books by this author this book can be read as a stand-alone.
For me this book is the perfect example as to why this author is so good. The characters are absolutely everything in this book – they are strong, engaging, have chemistry that you can feel on every page. I felt like I was fully immersed in them and their story from the word go.
The story itself is so well written – it is action packed and full of twists and turns. It was a genuinely exciting book to read. The author has done a great job at developing the plot and keeping your interest as a reader. This book is definitely worth reading and I am looking forward to what is next from this author.

“She had always thought the worst thing that could happen was to get attached to someone and then have your heart broken when they left or otherwise betrayed you. She slowly began to wonder if there was something far worse than that. Was being afraid to take a risk, to take a chance at love and friendship, far worse? The old adage, it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all, rang through her head.”

 

Matching Miriam by Mya O’Malley definitely makes for some engrossing reading. I have explored many of Ms. O’Malley’s books now and can always count on her to deliver a great story. This is a suspenseful crime story, woven with mystery, tension, drama, intrigue, romance, and more.
We have met Miriam previously in the Maggie Trilogy/series. She is Naomi’s neighbour and good friend- but most importantly she is a dedicated, tough, kick-@$$ cop who is now working on the toughest case of her career- tracking down the Decade Killer. This is one wily serial killer, and Miriam will find herself tested in more ways than one. Especially when her former love returns to town. Juggling matters of the heart with tracking down a serial killer won’t be easy- leaving us guessing what will happen next, the whole way through.
Looking forward to whatever Ms. O’Malley does next- she never disappoints!

Thank you, Mya O’Malley!
