These thrillers blend the fast paced plot of a thriller with supernatural elements like magic, psychics or ghosts.
Demons Shemons by KB Draper had more highlighted passages in it than not when I was through with it. Picking ONLY three tweetable quotes (that’s all that Sheena allows) was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my whole little lesbian life. Addison Jo Mattox has been thrust into the demon hunting world ever since her not so graceful interruption of a sacred Choktaw Indian ceremony of the
The Year Of The Knife by GD Penman was a really intriguing book from the start. I was worried it would be too strange, too confusing with its alternate names and history, with the prevalence of seemingly science-based magic. However, The Year of the Knife proved to be just the opposite. Set in an alternate timeline of our world, New York City is called New Amsterdam and the colonies never
The Other Mother by Holly Sharp had me laughing constantly! I enjoyed this uniquely styled book so much so that I forced my friend to read it with me. No if ands or butts. (I know its buts, but not today!) I’ll probably be mimicking the dialogue from this book for a while and my girlfriend will probably get sick of me. Also as a precursor for anyone who cares
Paradox Valley by Gerri Hill was a fantastic read. I’m a huge Gerri Hill fan and this novel does not disappoint. A four second blip on radar at an army base and an earthquake that shakes the residents in Paradox Valley causing all lights and batteries to go out has the army scrambling to find out what is going on. Was it an earthquake? A meteor? Or something else entirely?
Dark Dreamer by Jennifer Fulton is the perfect novel for me. It has romance, intrigue, mystery, horror and terrific writing. After listening to Grave Silence, where Fulton wrote as Rose Beechman, I was so impressed with her story telling that I looked up her other novels. This is the first in the Dark Vista series and it is so good. The story is about Rowe Devlin, a best selling horror
Ex-Wives of Dracula by Georgette Kaplan has it all. Action! Comedy! Romance! Although it isn’t really about being Dracula’s ex-wife. Mindy’s childhood friend, Lucia, is beautiful but she and Mindy haven’t spoken since Lucia went from being cute to sexy. When Mindy finds herself on Lucia’s porch delivering pizza and wrapping up her bloody foot, their friendship is re-kindled. Things escalate quickly and Mindy finds herself spending almost all her
Edit: Please note, this book is no longer available The Heart Thief by Holly Sharp is about a madman who is stealing organs from the people of a small, seaside town. Nobody knows how. Nobody knows why. And nobody knows who will be next. This brief description from Amazon does not properly set the scene for this tale. It is critical to know more about the setting of this book
Pennance by Clare Ashton is a tortured tale of regret, sorrow and the weight of love. Lucy is troubled by the death of her boyfriend, Jake. She lives in a perpetual twilight and moves through life as if she is moving through mud. Isolated in a deserted part of a small town, Lucy is barely living, sustained only by some mandatory work and a few visits from her dead boyfriend’s
Weeping Walls by Gerri Hill is the second book with CJ Johnston and Paige Riley as the main characters. Keepers of the Cave is the first book, so read that review first if you haven’t already. While I loved Keepers of the Cave, I think that Hill created and even better second book with Weeping Walls. The story is about an abandoned house in a small town in Houston. Here they
