A Person Could Disappear Here by Terri George

5 Stars

Ok so first I’m wondering why I haven’t read anything by this author up to this point. This was an amazing book, one that totally messed with my mind.

I cant even go into any of the storyline because Im afraid I will say too much and that absolutely would not be fair to anyone thinking about reading this story., and you really must read this story.

My jaw is still on the floor, this author totally floored me and I LOVED it, that is one of my favorite things about reading is when I have no idea what’s going to happen and then I have to go back and reread while asking myself…Whoa…hold on…what did I just read.

I loved the friendship feel in this story as well as the family bonds and the whole meeting someone on FB and how true so much of that is.

I’m simply speechless and can not wait to go find more books by this author, I literally could not put this book down and if this is any indication of the writing style of this author…Count me in! I also want to mention how much I love the cover of this book..Just beautiful.

Holy Moly what a book!

Loved It!

None of us can truly know all we would be capable of until we are driven to it.

When the man Abbey met on Facebook turns out to be anything but the caring, thoughtful and romantic person she thought him to be, she finds herself trapped in his isolated house on the outskirts of a small town in western Nebraska. Despite her overwhelming despair and the chances of her escaping being somewhere between slim and none, Abbey knows she has to get free… Or die trying.

Back home in London, England, no texts or calls from Abbey has alarm bells ringing for her flat-mate. When Abbey fails to make her return flight, Cristina heads to the states to search for her best friend, but where does she even begin to look for her?

A Person Could Disappear Here is a tale of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, never giving up hope, friendship, secrets and lies.

Prisoner

From a small child I’ve loved to lose myself in stories. I’m a firm believer that if heaven exists, it contains every novel ever written and has big squishy sofas to curl up on and read for all eternity.

 

Before I started writing novels, my comedy play, The Magazine was performed at The Bush Theatre in London, and my poetry has been published in several anthologies. However, I knew what I really wanted to write were novels. With several unfinished manuscripts languishing in the depths of my computer’s hard drive, it was my discovery of erotic romance that led me to ponder what my ideal romantic hero looked like. And thus, Nick Frost was born, and the epic love he shares with Mia spanning three books of Frost Trilogy. Then, after being nagged by my readers, of course I had to write Aiden and Jen’s love story in the FT spin-off, Torn.

 

After that I delved into the world of full-on erotica, but, as much as I enjoyed writing it, I knew I wanted to write other genres because, along with my hope that if an afterlife exists I can spend mine in a divine library, I’m also a firm believer in not being pigeon-holed. Which is why I made my first foray into literary fiction with A Person Could Disappear Here, because, for me, writing is all about the characters and their story rather than genre.

 

As English as they come, I believe there’s nothing that can’t be solved, resolved, overcome or celebrated better than with a nice cup of tea. (preferably with a lovely slice of Victoria sponge cake with real buttercream icing) From Rachmaninov (whose piano concertos I often listen to while writing) to Aerosmith, my taste in music is best described as eclectic. And I make a mean chocolate cake.

From the best-selling author of Sweet Hollow Women comes a quirky new thriller for fans of Megan Abbott, Liane Moriarty, and Carl Hiaasen.

Veloura has never stood a chance. Raised by a junkie and orphaned as a teen, she’s settled for a life of low expectations. She spends her days sprucing up the shack of a has-been bull rider and washing hair down at the local salon. But when it turns out her fiancé doesn’t have her best interests at heart, she’s forced to come up with a new plan for herself.

An opportunity to be the spokesperson for a coffee chain means a bright future could be hers, if only she can stay ahead of her dark past.

The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry – Review by Colleen Noyes

The Perfect ChildThe Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ummm holy crap?! The Perfect Child by Lucinda Berry is a book that has it all if you enjoy reading mystery, psychological, thriller type books. When I got this month’s list of “First Reads” I thought why not pick this one and I am so glad I did. The story revolves around Christopher a doctor and his wife Hannah who is a nurse. A happily married couple who seem to have the perfect stable life except their desire to have a child has been impossible. They encounter a young girl Janie, who is admitted to the hospital under unspeakable circumstances and soon take her in. What starts out as their dream coming true, quickly turns into a nightmare that you won’t soon forget.

The characters are written well and you can envision each one. I found myself drawn to Hannah and feeling her frustration at not being heard. I could see the pain on her face, the disappointment of slowly losing her husband to a manipulative child. Often, Christopher made me so angry and I was literally saying “Are you fricking kidding me? What are you blind?” This book was enthralling, frustrating, heartbreaking, and kept me on my toes.
The author pulled out all the stops and even though I knew early on what the “truth” was going to be I still found it to be a wonderful read that had so many twists and turns you didn’t see coming. This was my first read by this author but I can promise it won’t be my last. I appreciated the vivid details that weren’t over done and loved the different points of views. The secondary characters were realistic and strong and the writing style was smooth and easy. This is a book that you will want to read as soon as you can. Please note that there are some things that may be disturbing but if you like psychological type books you will see it for what it is.

I consider myself a reformed academic who discovered fiction writing was preferable to the real world. My love of suspense fiction is thoroughly indulged through writing novels and short stories about Fractured Families and Killer Secrets. My novels have been nominated for the Ned Kelly Award and semi-finaled in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, and my short stories have been included in several anthologies including the Anthology of Award Winning Australian Writing. I also review my favourite books, interview fellow writers, and blogs about books and writing.

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.

Alive (Sundown Series Book 3) by Courtney Konstantin – Review by Emily Walsh

Alive (Sundown Series Book 3)Alive
By: Courtney Konstantin
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alive (Sundown Series Book 3) by Courtney Konstantin was a spine tingling, post-apocalyptic thriller that had me on the edge on my seat.

My first read by this author, I was pulled in by not only the cover but by the raving reviews. This book is part of a series, but you can read this one as a standalone. But I do wish I read the other books first because I believe I missed some character development and background info. But I will be going back and checking them out, because I love the world that this author has created.

I was pulled in right away, and for someone that is picking about their zombie books, I have to say I was impressed and loved every minute of this heart pounding read. I loved the attention to detail and how the author managed to instill fear into me. The suspense was thick and the situations were terrifying. I love the constant surprises and the raw emotions that the characters portrayed as the zombies closed in.

Overall this book will probably give me nightmares, so it gets my super high recommendation and of course, my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading
