Review: The Silent Woman (Cat Carlisle #1) by Terry Lynn Thomas

Long before this book tour came about, I downloaded this book. I thought the cover was eye catching and I am a sucker for historical mysteries, so I downloaded it on my Kindle…….

And promptly forgot about it. Like everything else in my electronic life, things get buried before I even know they are there! My Kindle is full of great books that I have ordered and forgotten about.

So when this book came up for review as part of the HFVBT tour group, I was eager to join up. I didn’t even realize that I already owned the book until I went to download it again and found that I already had it!

Now I had a reason to actually read it and I was happy that I could unearth it from my Kindle and check out a new to me heroine! Continue reading “Review: The Silent Woman (Cat Carlisle #1) by Terry Lynn Thomas”


Special Feature: Theater of Spies (Tales from the Black Chamber #2) by S.M. Stirling

Black Chamber released last year and it was one of my most anticipated reads. I don’t read a whole lot of alternative history, but this one sounded so good.

While it ended up not being my cup of tea, I did appreciate the story and creativity that went into writing this new spin on history.

The follow up book Theater of Spies is out now and promises to be an equally wild ride full of spies and blinding twists! This series has been described as ‘Wonder Woman meets The Man in the High Castle with a splash of James Bond’ and I completely agree with this description.

Besides the fascinating time period, it boasts stunning exotic locales, death-defying feats and battles, dangerous-yet-sexy agents of foreign powers, and the highest of stakes. Continue reading “Special Feature: Theater of Spies (Tales from the Black Chamber #2) by S.M. Stirling”

Review: The Break Line (Max McLean #1) by James Brabazon

When I first started blogging, I wasn’t reading too many thrillers, let alone government thrillers.

But over the years, I have read a few here and the genre started to grown on me. Since I started blogging, I have increased my thriller base substantially.

Often though, I find that I am coming into a thriller series late in the game, with established characters and well developed subplots. When I had the opportunity to start this government thriller from the beginning, I eagerly said yes.

This is a debut novel for author James Brabazon and his main character Max McLean so steaks are high for a solid introductory novel. Continue reading “Review: The Break Line (Max McLean #1) by James Brabazon”

Giveaway: Treacherous Is the Night (Verity Kent #2) by Anna Lee Huber

I had the pleasure of reviewing this book and I loved it! It was easily 5 stars for me! Verity Kent is such a sassy and interesting heroine and I can’t get enough of her!

I have long since been a fan of Huber’s books and I am thrilled to be able to offer a copy of this book for my readers! This is the book you want to read in October! It’s a suspenseful mystery and worthy of fall reading!

In 1919 England, in the shadow of The Great War, many look to the spirit world for answers. But it will take an all too earthbound intrigue to draw in the discerning heroine of Anna Lee Huber’s latest mystery . . .

It’s not that Verity Kent doesn’t sympathize with those eager to make contact with lost loved ones. After all, she once believed herself a war widow. But now that she’s discovered Sidney is very much alive, Verity is having enough trouble connecting with her estranged husband, never mind the dead. Still, at a friend’s behest, Verity attends a séance, where she encounters the man who still looms between her and Sidney—and a medium who channels a woman Verity once worked with in the Secret Service. Refusing to believe her former fellow spy is dead, Verity is determined to uncover the source of the spiritualist’s top secret revelation.

Then the medium is murdered—and Verity’s investigation is suddenly thwarted. Even Secret Service agents she once trusted turn their backs on her. Undaunted, Verity heads to war-torn Belgium, with Sidney by her side. But as they draw ever closer to the danger, Verity wonders if she’s about to learn the true meaning of till death do us part .
