Editorial Reviews

Review

"Great imagination, fabulous imagery...This chilling page-turner is a genuine Canadian crime novel...Tardif gives her readers plenty of twists and turns before reaching a satisfying ending." --Midwest Book Review

"An exciting book from start to finish. The futuristic elements are believable...plenty of surprising twists and turns. Good writing, good book! Sci-fi and mystery fans will love this book." --Writer's Digest

From the Author

Divine Intervention is the first in a 'psi-fi' suspense thriller mystery series that is truly ALL-Canadian. My characters reveal Canadian pride, my locales reflect the beauty of Canada's scenic wonders and the undercurrents reinforce Canadian issues. Yet, when all is said, this series can cross infinite borders, and capture any culture. I am honored to be compared in any way to J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts, Lisa Jackson or Patricia Cornwell, some of the best writers in the USA, and I sincerely strive to make Canada proud! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

"ONE DOESN'T SIMPLY READ A TARDIF STORY, ONE EXPERIENCES IT!"

Dear reader:

I'm an international bestselling Canadian author who loves to say, "I kill people off for a living!" You can imagine the looks I get from people. Sometimes I'll tell them, "Fictitiously, of course. I'm an author." Sometimes I won't say anything; I'll let them wonder...

Submerged, my latest novel, is a psychological suspense thriller with a hint of supernatural, and it promises to leave you breathless. But I am probably best known for Children of the Fog, a supernatural suspense thriller that has sold over 60,000 copies and made Amazon's Top 100 bestsellers list (#4 in overall list) multiple times out of nearly 2 million ebooks; and Whale Song, a much-loved, inspiring family tale with a hint of mystery, which is now available in its third edition--plus a school edition with a discussion guide.

Whale Song, an emotional mystery that explores controversial issues like assisted suicide, school bullies and racism, has captured the attention of numerous film companies. A screenplay, which I wrote with co-writer Alison Neuman, was completed in 2006, along with a movie treatment. I'm pursuing possible film deals for many of my books. And sometimes when I think of a movie deal, I smell buttered popcorn.

Booklist calls me "a big hit in Canada...a name to reckon with south of the border."

In September 2005, my gripping action-packed techno-thriller The River was released. This well-researched novel explores the mysterious Nahanni River area, nanotechnology and man's obsession with longevity. The River has been compared to works by Michael Crichton, James Patterson, Dean Koontz and Dan Brown.

I'm also the author of the 2004 "sizzling psychic suspense" Divine Intervention, a 'psi-fi' suspense thriller (or paranormal romance) that has been compared to works by authors such as Iris Johansen, Kay Hooper and Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb's 'In Death' series. Divine Justice, the second in the Divine mystery series, was also released in 2011.

In 2009, I branched off into romance with my debut romantic suspense Lancelot's Lady. Since romance is a different genre from my usual suspense/thrillers and YA, I wrote Lancelot's Lady under the pen name of Cherish D'Angelo. Lancelot's Lady was a semi-finalist in the Dorchester Publishing Next Best Celler contest hosted by Textnovel. It also won an Editor's Choice award from Textnovel in 2010.

A novelette of suspense titled Remote Control was released in ebook edition in July 2010; and a collection of stories titled Skeletons in the Closet & Other Creepy Stories in August 2010.

In 2006, I participated in a hilarious new TV series 'A Total Write-Off', hosted by comedian Barbara North. In 2004, I was nominated for the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Award. In 2003, I wrote a public service announcement for a racial harmony campaign. My PSA script, One Voice ~ One World, placed third and was produced and aired on cable channels in Alberta.

I have not only held hundreds of book signings, I have also organized multi-author signings, held virtual book tours and other online events, and I've taught others how to promote their books. My book How I Made Over $42,000 in 1 Month Selling My Kindle eBooks is the #1 Marketing book specifically designed for Amazon's KDP Select program.

I've been interviewed by numerous TV and radio stations in Canada and the US, and I've been featured in a variety of newspapers and magazines in both countries.

I'm also the publisher at Imajin Books, a venture that is dear to my heart. Imajin Books publishes quality international fiction at affordable prices, with a focus on ebooks.

Born in Vancouver, BC, I was a "military brat" and a "military wife" who has lived all across Canada and in Bermuda. I now reside in Edmonton, AB, with my husband Marc and our Pomeranian Princess, Chai.

Format: Paperback
Things get really hot in this paranormal thriller when a serial arsonist murders three people, one of whom is the father of a politician on the rise. Set in British Columbia at a time in the near future, the case is assigned to a very special team of investigators with psychic abilities.

Leading the team is agent Jasmine McLellan, a Pyro-Psychic who can visit the remains of an arsonist's target and reconstruct the crime through the mind of the perpetrator. The other two members are Ben, a Psychometric Empath who can check you out by just touching your bare skin, and Natassia, a Victim Empath, who can reverse the saying that dead men tell no tales. The three form a very closely knit group, so that when they are ordered to temporarily expand the group by one, things get really tense, especially when the newest member is tall, rugged and handsome, but most of all, a skeptic.

The trail blows hot and cold as it leads them across British Columbia, as do the emotions, but the thing is, how many more people does the arsonist intend to kill, and how are the victims connected to each other?

The author combines murder, arson, adultery, blackmail, abuse and much more in this fast-paced book that you'll just have to read in one sitting. The only problem with it is that there is a book two mentioned, and I don't yet have a copy in my hands.

Format: Paperback
Finally, a Canadian novel by a Canadian author that captures Canadiana in its finest. Cheryl Kaye Tardif's most recent novel is comparative to Nora Roberts' "In Death" series that is penned under the pseudonym of 'J.D. Robb'.

In the first of Tardif's Divine series, Divine Intervention introduces the reader to an elite group of psychic government agents. The chemistry between Jasmine McLellan, the pyro-psychic who enters a serial killer's mind, and Brandon Walsh, the Chief of Arson Investigations, is hotter than a Florida heatwave.

Cheryl Kaye Tardif successfully manipulates the characters, their emotions and actions, and takes you to a startling climax that will leave you suspended. The shocking twist at Divine Intervention's conclusion will rip your emotions bare as you enter the world of a serial arsonist bent on revenge.

I enjoyed this novel immensely and will be awaiting Tardif's next book with hot, sweaty palms. Cheryl Kaye Tardif is destined to be a great Canadian author--and is the new 'Canadian J.D. Robb'.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Julius Butcher on September 13, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
Where should I start? I was thinking whether it was a paranormal, a romance or a thriller story. Or all together. The CFBI agents had paranormal abilities, and the way they used their gifts and made contact to the paranormal dimensions was interesting in itself. Some investigators would give anything to be able to sense, feel and see how the crime happened, just by touching objects of the crime scene. It would revolutionize the investigation process.

I like thrillers, I like twists and turns, and I like suspense. I got these all in Divine Intervention. As the story unfolds, the team is trying to catch an arsonist and killer. Soon they realise that they are after the wrong person. The team discovers the awful series of events that led to the murder they were investigating.
There was an exciting chase at the end (I could enjoy some more in the book), almost costing the life of McLellan. And there was a real twist at the end, the killer was somebody not expected. I had a small problem with that, though: there should have been some clues along the story, so it would not feel somewhat like deus ex machina.

Being a sci-fi fan (and being a man), I'm not really into romance stories, so it may be only me, but the romance started strangely: Agent McLellan hated Walsh right when they met. Of course Walsh was assigned to the investigation, and they had the chance to argue with each other. I was confused when it turned to love. Ladies, if you read the book, please tell me if I'm wrong on this, and the turn was believable.
Anyway, they fell into love, but then McLellan turned down Walsh when he tried to make love with her. Not that I wanted a sex scene, but after the trouble they went through, they merited to have a good time together.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Some of my favorite authors are Canadian. Cheryl Tardif is a new addition to the ranks of Margaret Atwood, Tanya Huff, and a host of others.

Arson is probably the deadliest five letter word and definitely a curse to any firefighter or criminalist. Solving arson cases and especially preventing recidivism in an arsonist takes special training. A future Canadian FBI has developed a crack team of investigators to help solve these types of crimes. The three are led by Matthew Divine, hence the name of the book. Divine makes no appearances and seems more like the mysterious "Charlie" of the Angels' boss.

Jasi (Jasmine) McLellan, is a Pyro psychic who can breathe smoke from either the conflagration or cremains of a crime and join minds with the arsonist. Natassia, a recent Russian emigre, is a Victim Empath, who literally talks to dead people and 'empties' their psychic aura when she reads them. Ben rounds out the team (and provides a love interest for Natassia) as a profiler and empath. For this book, they are joined by arson investigator, Brandon Walsh, who initially doesn't believe in any of their gifts and serves as an interesting antagonist.

The team's facing a serial arsonist. The crime that comes to their attention is the incineration of Dr. Norman Washburn at his lakeside cabin. The physician is trussed up in IV tubing, soaked with gasoline, and set ablaze. What gets them called in is that the physician is the 'illegitimate father' of a notable politician from that area.

"He needed killin'" is a common phrase in the South and unfortunately, there's not much sympathy for the victim in this case.
