Book Description

Gone without a trace ...

Lexi Yates knows she hasn’t harmed her three-year old daughter, yet the Louisiana town of Gator Bayou seems to think she’s guilty. With her daughter missing, the evidence stacking up against her and her faith in God tested to the limit, Lexi must find a way to convince FBI agent Ace Valdez she’s innocent before she becomes the next target.

Ace Valdez doesn’t trust easily, and he certainly knows better than to fall for a case, yet there’s something about the widowed mother that makes him want to believe she’s innocent, but evidence doesn’t lie. Or does it?

Long Novella - about 36,000 words

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful and quick July 12, 2012
By Sarrah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great thriller, with a lot of suspense. At one point I had to suspend my disbelief, but quickly got over it in this well written story.

My only regret is that it wasn't longer, as I would have liked to keep reading.

The christian theme was well incorporated, and added to the story nicely.

Well done Tamelia Tumlin!

5.0 out of 5 stars First time Tamelia Tumlin reader August 10, 2012
By deb B
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book to review by Tamelia Tumlin on library thing. My review is my honest opinion. It was a quick read. I loved the characters Ace and Lexi. The characters were well-developed and I felt like I knew them. The crime/mystery theme of this book is definitely my favorite genre to read. I like how the romance was incorporated slowly into the story. While I felt the Christian theme was unnecessary, it was incorporated into the storyline well. I would definitely recommend this book to readers who like a little suspense and romance. It was definitely a good book. I will definitely be looking to read more by this author. If you want a quick but great read this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting from the first word! December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Just wanted to say this first, I love Tamelia's faith-based books, but don't care for the others.
Saying that I want to say her faith-based books are the best.
From the very first line to the ending line of Deadly Image I was very spell bound and intrigued. This is just a super, fantastic book. I could have read it in one day, but started late so had to put it down to sleep, but couldn't wait to finish it.
Deadly Image is a kindle book, but I got it on Adobe Digital Edition on my computer. I ONLY complaint I have with this book is the print on my computer was smaller than I like, but I'm sure the Kindle version would be much better.
I like how Lexi and Ace get along. At first it was blaming each other for the loss of Lexi's little girl. Lexi was blamed for kidnapping her own daughter and Lexi blamed Ace the FBI investigator for not doing more to help find her.
I was quite captivated and intrigued with each turn of events and couldn't believe how it all came to an end. I really, really love Deadly Image for the fast-paced, suspense and romantic story plot. A book that gets a five-star and wishing I could give it more. Tamelia Tumlin is a first time author for me and will enjoy reading more of her inspirational intrigue books. Highly recommend!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book August 17, 2012
By Jettie
Format:Kindle Edition
Lexi has moved away from her family, with her 3 year old daughter, to try and relieve the stress of her husbands death in an auto accident. Only 23, and a widow adds stress to her already stressful life. Taking a day off work to redecorate her daughter's room, when she goes to pick up her daughter, they tell her she picked her up 2 1/2 hrs earlier, and had told them she wouldn't be there the rest of the week.

This is the beginning of a drama that keeps unfolding into a deeper mystery. The police and FBI agent, Ace, believe she's done something with her daughter, only her parents seem to believe her. Was the stress of the past year getting to her? Had she really picked up her daughter, and then had no memory of it?

Some say the Christian aspect of this book was unnecessary, to me it was very necessary, it brought a lot to the story. The local church pulling together with Lexi to have a candlelight prayer vigil, and what it brought forth was a wonderful addition.

I was given a digital copy of this book by the author, to read and review. No other compensation was given. All my reviews are my own opinion, I'm not required to give favorable reviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Image August 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Lexi Yates and her 3 year old daughter Anna, have started a new life in the town of Gator Bayou in Louisiana. Lexi's husband died in a car crash and she just wants a new place to live away from all of the familiar scenes of her formerly happy life with her deceased husband and the sad ending to what should have been a long and wonderful life together. Little Anna disappears one day and the local police seem to believe that Lexi has done something to her young daughter. Even the FBI seem to distrust her words and actions. With all the stress of waiting for word about her daughter, dealing with the police, the FBI and family and neighbors has taken a toll on Lexi. She suffers from stress and recurring nightmares that seem to be more frequent and scary. She must find Anna and put an end to the bad feelings and fear of what is happening to Anna.
This book has several mysteries contributing to the story. Memories from the past, what her parents know but aren't saying contribute to a lot of questions but make the story more interesting. Although I was able to guess at what was haunting Lexi fairly early on, reading the story to verify what I thought was a good read. I do recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery and some romance too.

This book was provided to me to read and review by the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good short Mystery December 29, 2012
By rhonda
Format:Kindle Edition
Deadly Image is a well told story. I figured out part of the answer to the mystery early in the story. Still was enjoyable to see how it all turned out.
Lexi Yates has had her 3 yr. old daughter taken. The cops all believe that Lexi must have done something to her daughter. Lexi is a widow her husband a preacher was killed in a car wreck. Lexi has panic attacks and is on medicines for them.
The Sheriff is only looking at her. The daycare said that Lexi picked up her daughter earlier in the day.
Lexi took the day off to finsh her daughters room so she has no one that can vouch for her whereabouts.
FBI agent Ace Valdez is open to look at everything. He asks Lexi lots of questions trying to trip her up and so far she is sticking to the truth. Ace wants Lexi to be innocent. More and More it looks like Lexi is lying about picking up her daughter.
Lexi has only moved to this small town months ago. Her parents have come to help find Anna and help Lexi. They almost lost Lexi when her husband died.
The only thing about the story is falling for someone while your 3 year old has disappeared.
I won this ebook from Librarything and asked to give an honest review after I had read it.
