If anyone can tell the difference between monsters and humans, it’s Dahlia Nite. For nearly a century, she’s hunted one to protect the other; safeguarding humanity from the creatures that slip through the torn veil between the worlds—creatures like her. But the lines are blurring. As people begin mutating and combusting on the streets, Dahlia realizes a strange affliction has descended upon Sentinel City. The mysterious ailment strikes all walks of life, from the posh, high-end nightclub district to the homeless community. Its victims, driven to random acts of savagery, are drawing attention too fast to cover up.

Assigned to the case, Dahlia and her human partner, Detective Alex Creed, investigate the deaths. But all they have are questions and bodies, and a public on the verge of panic. Working behind the scenes with her self-appointed sidekick, Casey Evans, Dahlia struggles to discover what, or who, is behind the alarming transformations. As the violence spreads and the mystery unfolds, she wonders: are the victims still human? Were they ever?
Chain Reaction is the second book in the Nite Fire Series.

”Dark and intense, with an M. Night Shyamalan-level twist.”
~Kristen Mae, bestselling author of the Conch Garden series

OLD SINS. NEW BLOOD.

Deputy Sheriff William Shannahan doesn’t feel like a detective, at least not like the ones he admires on TV. Not that he needs to be; the small town of Graybel, Mississippi, is a peaceful place, with acres of farmland, neighbors who always take care of their own, and noise from the outside world muted by a hundred miles of forest.

That silence is about to be broken.

When a child is found dead in the woods, the medical examiner deems it a dog attack. But the paw prints belong to something far larger than any creature in the Mississippi forests, and what animal would remove the victim’s eyes? Though no one believes him, William can’t shake the feeling that a human killer lurks in the shadowed woods.
And his girlfriend, Cassie, has a son the same age as the victim.

Cassie Parker was raised amid horrors she’s long pushed from her mind, but her scars won’t let her forget. Nor do the hallucinations, dreams so vivid she can feel and smell and taste them. And no one is more terrified than Cassie when another victim is found mauled to death—because this body has been drained of blood. She knows exactly what type of person would sacrifice a child, and why they’re after hers. But how can she explain it to William?

This is William’s chance to act like a detective, to protect the woman and child he’s desperate to save. Pushing back against prejudice and presumption, he uncovers a trail of cruelty that spans decades, but each clue brings him closer to a truth more horrifying than killer beasts in the forest. For concealed beneath small-town politics is knowledge that will shatter everything he knows to be true about his town—and the people in it.

A compulsively readable thriller in the vein of Cujo, The Girl on the Train, and M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, Shadow’s Keep is a mind-bending exploration of obsession, desperation, and how far we’ll go to protect those we love.

Wren thought things were bad when her boyfriend’s father tried to frame her for murder. But that was before a hostile army showed up at the city gates, ready to swallow Maradis whole. And before guild members began disappearing one by one–including the Confectioner’s Guild’s newest Gifted recruit.

Wren, suspecting the king is to blame for the disappearances, undertakes a dangerous investigation that sets her on a collision course with old and new enemies alike. Will she be able to find the missing guild members before tensions boil over into outright rebellion? Or are the guilds willing to go further than she ever realized to rid themselves of the king’s tyranny…

Peeling back layers of lies could save a masterpiece…or reveal a killer.

After a long week lobbying on Capitol Hill, all Karina Cardinal wants to do is chill with Netflix and her boyfriend, Patrick Dunne. Instead, she’s slipping her aching feet into red stilettos for his parents’ annual holiday bash.

When she accidentally interrupts Patrick’s father in his study, her embarrassment is tempered by suspicion that Martin Dunne and his dapper, secretive guest are hiding something. Maybe the painting she barely glimpses right before it disappears behind a secret panel.

An internet search raises her curiosity to full-blown alarm. If she’s right, Martin is in possession of a stolen masterpiece. Infamous because everyone close to it has turned up dead. As in Mafia-style-execution dead.

As she’s chewing over which instinct to follow—back off while she still can, or dig deeper for the truth—she crosses paths with FBI agent Mike Finnegan. An old friend and not-quite flame from her college days. When she looks into his warm, mocha eyes, she’s tempted to tell him everything.

Trouble is, she’s already being watched. And the next move she makes could destroy innocent lives…including her own.

HE’S BACK.

Detective Edward Petrosky has always felt the pain of the world like a razor blade in his gut, even more so when he considers the killers who have escaped conviction. But he can’t let that stop him, not after a grandmother is found murdered on her front lawn, the victim of some machete-wielding psycho.

The case is strange from the outset: no one heard a thing despite the public nature of the crime. An unknown child’s footprints cover the property without a trace of the kid. And a grisly discovery in the basement has the entire police force stunned. Nothing makes sense. Whatever secrets their victim had, she’d taken them, quietly, to her grave.

But when another woman’s corpse turns up with a familiar brand on her ribcage, Petrosky realizes the horrible truth: a killer he’d thought was long gone from Ash Park has remained, lurking in their midst. And who knows how many victims this butcher has collected? For those he’s kidnapped, any day might be their last, imprisoned, unseen, with only their screams and a deranged lunatic for company.

Now Petrosky must risk everything he holds sacred to track the most sadistic killer Ash Park has ever seen, a man whose thirst for carnage extends far beyond mere bloodletting. But saving innocent lives will require an unbearable sacrifice.

One from which he may never recover.

Hidden is the emotional fourth book in the hair-raising Ash Park series. If you like Blake Crouch, Dean Koontz, or Paula Hawkins, you’ll love Ash Park.

The first in the Brothers of Camelot Series: The Only One

Can a man whore whose motto is “One and Done” keep it in his pants long enough to win back the trust of his childhood sweetheart?

Drake, otherwise known as Fitz, was dealt a tragic hand from the beginning. Pain and rejection melted away when a little girl with huge brown eyes, strawberry blonde curls and an explosive personality, walked into his new home and his heart.
Inseparable as kids, she’s literally ripped from his arms when they’re teens. Convincing himself he’s unworthy of her, he closed himself off to all future relationships, refusing to open his heart to anyone else. If only she would come back to him.

Isabella, with her unique personality, is the polar opposite of her rich socialite mother, with a determination and drive to be more than just someone’s country club showpiece.

She returns to her childhood town to start her own business, and prove she doesn’t need her mother, or a man, to feel complete. Thanks to her first love, her father’s betrayal and a slew of bad relationships, she’s locked her heart away, hidden behind her smile and sweet disposition. She’s found peace in her memories of Drake, hoping he’ll finally contact her, or maybe she’ll find the nerve to contact him.

Can their long-lost love be rekindled, or do they need a little help from their friends?

Violet Blood (Murder in Savannah Book 4) – Review by Heidi Eich Woodring

Violet Blood (Murder in Savannah, #4)Violet Blood by Lindsay Marie Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Violet Blood is the 4th book in the Murder in Savannah Series by Lindsay Marie Miller, and also the final book in this amazing series that I have grown to love. Following Addie and Tom, seeing them grow as characters in these book have been amazing. So many ups and downs have shaped them throughout this whole series. So many secrets have been ousted, so many discoveries along the way. The road to this book has not always been easy and sometimes very dangerous. The book again grabbed me and held me to the end just as the others before this one, but as I kept getting closer to the end, I dreaded it since I knew I would be saying goodbye to Addie and Tom.
Lindsay Marie Miller, you gave us an amazing series that I know I will read many times, because Addie and Tom grew on me and gave them an ending they deserve. I truly cannot wait to read more by this author.

Pearl White (Murder in Savannah) By Lindsay Marie Miller – Review By Heidi Eich Woodring

Pearl White (Murder in Savannah, #3)Pearl White by Lindsay Marie Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pearl White is the third book in the Murder in Savannah series by Lindsay Marie Miller, is again another amazing and exciting book in this series. Along with amazing story lines, the characters simply draw you in, beginning with Addie and Tom/ These two disagree so much but when they are back in each other’s arms, the chemistry is unbelievable. This book takes off right where the last one left off and again the necklace is what drives them and leads them through this book and this time they wind up in Paris. Paris where this story really picks up and you really see what Millers book is really about and how well written in really is. The mystery, the suspense, the growing of Tom and Addie. I could not put 5 star book down and look forward to reading more in this series! I LOVE TOM and ADDIE!!!

My Salvation (Salvation Series #1) by Michelle Dare – Review by Colleen Noyes

My Salvation (Salvation, #1)My Salvation by Michelle Dare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

WOW what a great book My Salvation by Michelle Dare was to read! It is the first in the Salvation Series and left me yearning for the next one!

Caliana (Cali) Crawford, has finally had enough of her crappy job, where she is unappreciated. She’s at a point in life where she just wants to do something meaningful and make a difference. She decides it’s time to clear her head and knows the best place to do that is at the cabin her aunt left her. She never expects to run into childhood friend Owen Matthews.

Owen is a man who has done something with his life, but unfortunately he is still missing something. He remembered back to when they were teenagers and shared a kiss, but she left. He never thought he would amount to anything back then but “He worked his butt off and a part of him knew he did it for Cali. He worked hard, saved and invested the money he made. He bought the company he worked for, and the cabin for his mom. He felt like a boy, wanting the girl that was unattainable. The awkward boy who kissed the beautiful girl way out of his league.”

Here they are many years later and his feelings are still strong. He takes a risk and kisses her and is overjoyed when she reciprocates. He feels that maybe new life is breathed into what could have been. “He knew then and there that he would do whatever it took to keep her in his arms. She was his, even if she didn’t know it yet.”

As they begin to see where this could take them, they are both dealing with their own set of demons and obstacles. Cali has been betrayed by someone she loved and has lost her aunt. Owen was betrayed by his brother Ethan who has returned to town. With money and power comes crazy people out of the wood work and for Owen he’s no different. Dealing with his ex Mia and a woman at his office Avery is a little touch and go.

When Owen and Cali find themselves in danger will they solve the mystery together or go their separate ways? Can a teenage crush ever become more than just that? Can your past come back as something filled with love, hope, and a future or will the past simply destroy your present?

Michelle Dare is a vivid writer who wrote with specific details, set up the scenes beautifully, and built strong characters. I enjoyed that she gave some type of a background story to every character even though this was Owen & Cali’s journey. The writing was concise, fluid, exciting, and at times heart-wrenching. This was a wonderful book that I loved. I can’t wait to see if the next one will be Ethan or Erik’s story because it’s a hard choice!
