Sarah Andrews is one smart cookie. She’s a top-notch attorney, educated at Stanford and freshly fired from one the best legal firms in Indiana. Her love/win record is 0-3 and as she approaches her thirtieth birthday, she decides she needs a quiet, safe place to regroup. She decides to go home to Dodd.

But Dodd, Indiana is far from safe once she comes face-to-face with Richland Conrad Cooper. Rich and Sarah go way back to high school. Rich was teen-girl kryptonite—athletic, charming…persuasive—and Sarah was not immune. She fell hard, certain she’d found true love. But it turned out to be nothing more than the first of her love tries and fails.

She thought time had shored up her defenses, but one look at Rich makes her heart do flip flops. It’s like the moment where unrequited love gets a do-over, the only problem is…Rich doesn’t remember who the hell she is.

That hurt, and no matter how hard Rich tries to make up for that initial faux pas, Sarah won’t forget. She has learned—if a guy steals your heart, breaking his is quid pro quo.

Only when Rich is served with a custody challenge of his two daughters does Sarah call a truce. Working together, Rich can’t help but totally fall for her. She’s cold and rude, forcefully pointing out their differences and his flaws every chance she gets. But the heart wants what the heart wants, so Rich tries even harder to convince her she isn’t meant for any other guy, but him.

Redemption (Ash Park, #5) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Jana Teppih

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Redemption is the conclusion of Meghan O’Flynn’s Ash Park series (there will be another book but she calls it Prequel Novella so …) Oh my goodness, what a closing it is … all those questions we have had in our hear, the pain Detective Petrosky has felt, the guilt that has been drowning him, the losses he has suffered … the puzzle will be put together and revealed and you will be left stunned …
You MUST read all the books leading up to this show down, you need to know the history, the people involved and their stories, you need to have lived with Detective Petrosky … (yeah, someone could say that you do not need to but do yourself a favour, don’t go off half cocked!) ALL the previous books lead up to this one! I promise you, you will be shocked, you will be wrecked, AND you have no idea how it all will end, UNTIL you get to the end (unless you are some sort of genius and mind reader and … not me …)
I think this is the best writing I have seen from the writer so far, she has gotten better with every single story in the series – she has dug so deep into the puzzle that she is breathing it, with every single word she has put down on the paper … You are guaranteed a fantastic read and you will not be able to wait for Jilted (the prequel novella), I wonder where the writer will be taking us …

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn is book five and the last in the Ash Park series. I have spent so much time in Ash Park, and I am sad this moving, engrossing, mystery filled, series has come to an end. O’ Flynn was able to grab me from book one till this book. Each book getting better and better and this ONE truly blew me out of the water. The crime coming back to haunt Detective Petrosky, connection to the Looking Glass Killer bringing up so much while Petrosky still dealing with his grief and must finally put this case to rest SOLVED! There are times I want to slap Petrosky but this book, showed me again shows me just how much I have grown to love him. He is a broken down man who has had to deal with such pain and tragedy. This man and all his grief are thrown into a case and investigation that will make him face his past and his pain HEAD ON!
I fully can’t put into words how much this book and this series have stayed with me and will continue to stay with me. Meghan O’Flynn delivers each time, and makes me want to read all the books in one sitting. I am addicted to her suspense, her strong characters, and her amazing writing. I am so sad to see this end and truly hope that one day we get to visit Ash Park again. I highly recommend this series, this author, you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Redemption: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 5) by Meghan O’Flynn

5+++++++ Stars for the book, the series and this amazingly awesome author.

I actually only read the last 2 of this series and am so hooked I can’t even tell you, I will have the first 3 and actually think I might want this whole series sitting on my bookshelf next to some other authors that write in this genre, I won’t mention their names but you would know who I was talking about if I did mention them. This author deserves to be right next to them and for some of the writing in these stories Id say she even bypassed them, so yeah Im thinking I will add this series to my Christmas list so that I can read it from the very beginning and what a great excuse to read the last two all over again.

I don’t even have the words to explain how I feel about this book…The name this author chose is so spot on and I couldn’t wait to read it, after finishing Hidden I wasn’t quite sure what I would be walking into but I just knew that this author would take care of it and she did not let me down. Oh, thats not saying it was an easy read because it wasnt when some details were explained or we got to hear from a totally different voice, it was those times I just wanted to crawl through the kindle and beat the tar out of someone.

I truly love Petrosky, he’s not easy to love but I absolutely do, and Jackson, simply awesome!! I wasn’t sure at first but that didn’t last long.

I just don’t know what else to say without going into this long drawn out review full of spoilers so I think it is best I just stop and tell you to pick these books up, don’t start on the 4th like I did, go back and read them all, I can tell there’s a lot I missed, although it didn’t hinder my ready at all I still know I must have them all.

Brilliant storyteller, I read it in less than a day, and I will read every book this author writes, she is now firmly placed on my favorites list of all time.

What another gripping read from this series and author! Following Petrosky again, we are taken on one heck of a ride.
I felt all he felt, and I just couldn’t put this down until the end. I’ve read all books from this series and have been dreading but also waiting for this book at the same time.
I will be reading more from this author in the future for sure!

Redemption (An Ash Park, #5) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Shannon Fowler

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better. There are surprises at every turn. This book is well written and just as exciting as the rest of the series. It is also just as twisted and gruesome as the other books as well.

Detective Petrosky is an amazing detective, father and person. He is a human. He has made mistakes from the beginning of book one. But he is human. He loves with his whole heart, but he won’t tell you that. He’s tough on the outside and even tougher on the inside. I love that he is a larger type man, with common health conditions. Doesn’t everyone love granola bars!?

I also love the return of certain characters from previous books, especially Shannon Morrison. Watching her change from the hard as nails prosecutor into a loving and caring mother was an interesting twist. Knowing that some of the characters get closure, if not their own version of a happily ever after, makes this book a fantastic finish for this series.

I highly recommend this book as the perfect conclusion to the Ash Park series.

Redemption (An Ash Park Series Novel, #5) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Ashleigh Harrington

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn is the fifth book in her Ash Park Series and I just can’t say enough good things about this one. Each book grips you from page one and takes you in and out of dark places showing you a different terror and characters that willingly walk into that darkness. I can’t say enough good things about O’Flynn and this series, picking book one up was a whim, but I haven’t been able to look the other way since. O’Flynn spins a story so well that it draws you in and leaves you breathless before you realize there was an issue. This book takes place roughly 6 months after book 4, so while each book is written in a way that it could be read as a stand-alone, I totally recommend reading them all in order, so the characters and stories all make the most sense. The brilliant twists, surprises, and tension that unfolded with each of the installments in the Ask Park Series kept me glued to the pages and clamoring to find out what happens next. In Redemption, we are taken full circle, going back to where the journey with these characters all began and getting to see the storyline from a completely different perspective. Getting this back story on the characters, as well as motivations for why they did what they did made this a very interesting take on this series. This book really tied the entire series together making it an even better reading experience.
Detective Petrosky is definitely the star of this book, and while he is very much a broken man, he is going to be pushed to a new limit with this complex investigation that is going to bring the ghosts of past back into play. This investigation really took me for a ride, keeping me on the edge of my seat afraid to turn the lights off. If you are looking for a fantastic read that is guaranteed to keep you coming back for more than this is the book, nay series, for you. I can’t wait to see where this series goes from here, or any other books in O’Flynn’s collection because I just need to get my hands on more of her writing.

Redemption (Ash Park #5) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Emily Walsh

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption
ByMeghan O’Flynn
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Redemption (Ash Park #5) by Meghan O’Flynn was a heart pounding, feels invoking, raw psychological thriller that not only hooked me like the other books, but it brought me back to the first book, to that unsolved case, that’s ends with a shocking conclusion.

Coming off the emotional punch to the face from the last book, this book picks up pretty close to when books four ends. I will say before I continue, though these books can be read as standalones, they are following a connecting plot line, and time line. So I highly suggest reading the other books in this series. Especially the first book, as this one directly connects to it. You won’t get the full emotional boot kick, if you skip it. Plus, all the books in this series are freaking amazing!

I don’t even know how to review this book, it wasn’t what I was expecting, and frankly this is probably one of the best books I have read this year. But, let me be clear, to get the full effect, you got to read the other books. You got to see the darkness that’s been smothering Petrosky. His downward spiral, his ghosts, his willingness to just end it all. All of that, from those books, everything leads up to this one. This book will shock you, wreck you and, you will not see the ending coming. I was second guessing everything, and it was, wow.. just wow.

I really hope this isn’t the end of the series, I feel like there needs to be one more, just one more to close it out fully. But if this is the last book, then I have to say, that Meghan O’Flynn has done this series justice and ended it just as strong as it was started. Every book was strong, and that consistency of high level writing is what separates this series, this book, from others like it.

In saying that, please, please, take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that this book is not only a must read, it’s a classic in the making. It will break your emotions, have you struggling to keep it together, and you will shed some tears. This book, this series, is on a whole other level, and is worth every bit of praise it has received.

Happy Reading

Redemption (Ash Park, #5)Redemption by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve said it once and many times, Meghan O’Flynn doesn’t disappoint her readers with her amazing way of putting words together. Words that are able to captivate the reader, and make you sit on the edge of your seat. This was my exact experience with Redemption in the Ash Park Series. It doesn’t matter that I’ve read the previous books in this series, but the intense suspense and thrill remains within the pages of the book and with the characters. I absolutely love how Meghan can develop characters that completely captivate you and don’t let you go. This was most definitely another 5 Star Book for me!!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! What a way to end a series! Redemption is Book 5 in the Ash Park Series by Meghan O’Flynn. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book seeing as though the last one left you a little worried. Detective Ed Petrosky has lost his partner and the son he never had. Now that Shannon is moving on with the kids, what does he do? That is the constant question that keeps remaining throughout the entire book. However, in true Meghan O’Flynn style, she has a twist for us. A new partner for Petrosky! And this one is a loop that you did not see coming! I’m not going to go in detail because I want you to be surprised but let’s just say Petrosky is way out of his league on this one! But you will definitely love it! I know I did. I absolutely loved this book as well as I did the others! I would definitely read this series in order because it ends up being one ongoing story. This author has really impressed me with her writing style and raw nature that you do not tend to see very often! I’m glad this series has come to my attention and I truly cannot wait to read more from her! It isn’t easy writing murder mystery and to do it so well and to be able to keep one’s attention through 5 books is amazing! Well done Ms. O’Flynn! You have done this series and this genre proud!
