Reviewed – Gone Daddy Gone by Cheryl Bradshaw

Title  Gone Daddy Gone

Author  Cheryl Bradshaw

Genre Mystery, Suspense, Thriller

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

I believe in something, a higher power perhaps, I’d like to believe in some form of afterlife, that when we die, we go on, existing in another way.

Cheryl Bradshaw ( Gone Daddy Gone , Chapter: 31)

Book Description:

A single moment is about to change Sloane Monroe’s life forever…

On an early winter morning, college student Shelby McCoy walks the quiet, snowy path back home. A tree branch snaps in the distance. Then another. A man is there with her, following close behind, whispering her name. She looks back, sees him gaining on her, and runs. Who is this man, and why is he carrying a gun?

My Review:

After starting this piece my hopes were really high, expectations that were never quite met by the end. Its starts out really well only to culminate in a somewhat sloppy ending. I felt the bar that was set in the beginning wasn’t maintained throughout. It was a good story full of twists & suspense but I wasn’t quite satisfied with the conclusion although the story was reasonably well paced.

Genre  Thriller, Mystery , Fiction

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Book Description:

In the first book of the Suitcase Girl Trilogy, Agent Abby Kane discovers an unlikely connection with a little girl found outside the offices of the FBI.

In an effort to learn where the child came from, Abby brings the girl home with her, thinking a family environment might jog the girl’s memory. Abby’s efforts pay off as the investigation points toward human trafficking. Only it doesn’t end there.

As Abby continues to dig, indicators suggest there’s something more, something unthinkable… and quite frankly, unexplainable.

My Review:

Read this one in less than 24 hours! Yes 24 hours! I was hooked to the story. Fascinated by the characters as they were all well-developed. Writing style was also easy to grapple with, considering the story is full of twists and turns, yet mystery to be solved & questions to be answered. A great read. To be continued in part 2 for those interested to continue on the journey.

Reviewed – The Secrets of Their Souls by Brooke Sivendra

Title The Secrets of Their Souls

Author Brooke Sivendra

Genre Romance, Thriller, Suspense

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Things that fall apart can never be put back together. We can try, and we do, but the cracks will always be there no matter how good a craftsman we are.

Brooke Sivendra ( The Secrets of Their Souls, Chapter: 22)

Book Description:

Zahra Foster is good at keeping secrets. 

By day she is a high-powered hustler with an enviable career, while at night, in her dreams, she plays a deadly assassin. Tormented by the crimes she has witnessed, Zahra doesn’t tell anyone about her nightmares. But, when she meets her new boss, Mr. Jayce Tohmatsu, she soon realizes that they have more in common than just the company they work for, and that her dreams are the storytellers of her long-forgotten past. 

Unable to resist the magnetic pull between them, Zahra and Jayce embark on an all-consuming and passionate affair–one that is built on love as well as lies. As Zahra’s dreams intensify, she will discover that she is not the only one keeping secrets, that the past is never truly forgotten and that all debts must be paid, one way or another. 

My Review:

Strangely enough, protagonist or antagonist are the same person in this novel as this story revolves around reincarnation. Centred around strong characters with intricate weaves of past & present into the story line. One can find romance, thrill & suspense all in one here. I’d have personally preferred it to be a standalone storyline but it’s not apparently. Onto the second book in series to find out the truth of these characters..!

My Review – Dead Yet Dying by B. K. Brain

Title Dead Yet Dying

Author B. K. Brain

Genre Supernatural, Thriller, Fiction

My Rating   ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Truth isn’t elusive. It stands boldly, daring us to have a look, naked and brave. The problem is in reality itself. It’s in the eyes of those that see, in the ears of those that hear. Perception is a tinted glass. Every experience adds color to the lens.

B. K. Brain (Dead Yet Dying, Part Four:Chapter 11)

Book Description:

Life and death, choice and consequence.
Redefined.
Daniel Speegs isn’t aware he was scheduled to die with his fiancée fifteen years ago. He’s spent the stolen time in an alcoholic blur, blaming himself for her death. When he realizes he can go back and save her he sets out on a fatal journey.

But the power to change the past isn’t his to give. Not according to a murderer, a man determined to claim Dan’s mortal energy for himself, no matter the cost.

Enter Shellandra Flack, agent of death.

Dan’s existence has derailed the chain of causality and she needs him to die at the hands of the killer.

If Dan survives, the world won’t.

My Review:  

Just finished this book yesterday. Though thrillers really aren’t my usual cup of tea, but I was surprised when I couldn’t stop my self from reading this one.

Once I started there was no stopping, I really got sucked into this story. You know that time when you put down your book and then you need some time to get back to your present real world, it was that kind of experience for me.

Writing style was good, it has comedy woven into the tension of the story and really kept the suspense going. one can easily expect it to be a movie some day… 😉

Right thing is never selfish.
