HOUSE of CARDS had me from the first line. This novel displays a wonderful mixture of suspense, mystery and action when Jesse begins her search for her, knowing in her heart something is wrong.Having a fractured past she arrives in the home town she left long ago to try and find her sister--will anyone believe her when she accuses her sister's husband of murder? You won't go wrong reading this as it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

"Terri Molina's HOUSE OF CARDS is precisely that; an intricately balanced structure with thrills, a mystery at the center that holds it all together, and a touch of romance just enough to make you want to see the two leads to end up together! Settle in for a long night and turn the phone off when you start this one."

What a read! House of Cards is a delicate tale filled with thrills, mystery and more. The book unfolds a tale of mystery and suspense, and I loved every word of it. House of Cards really will keep you guessing until the end. You surely won't be disappointed!

"Her hand tightened around the phone, pinching her skin against the hard plastic. "Alicia? It's Jesse! Are you there? Oh God, please answer."

"Oh, God, don't let that be blood."

"You can't let him hurt my baby."

These are some of the lines that created the intense moments in my mind as I read. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Thank you for writing this story!

Review Copy from a Contest Win

This is one successful thriller because it kept my adrenaline pumping like nothing else. That razor edge of danger was always present, that sense of not knowing quite what was coming next. The prickles up the spine, you know what I mean. I have to admit, I quite like to be scared when I read a book, provided I'm reading in a safe environment. This thriller did the job. Admirably.

As the blurb says, the opening hook will have you on high alert from page one. Jessica Pena has noticed a recurrence of the nightmares which had plagued her for years - the nightmare in which she relives the unspeakable road disaster - she's never called it an accident - in which her parents died and from which she barely escaped with her life. That event which changed her life forever, after which all she had left in the world was her elder sister Alicia. Which would have been fine except for the fact that Alicia married the sinister and unreadable Marcus Vega. Vega, the villain of the piece, who drove the two sisters apart. A sudden, frantic message from Alicia on her answering machine after a seven year silence has Jessica running back to the town on the Mexican border where she grew up. The trouble is, Alicia has disappeared. Vega, plausible as ever, says that his wife left home after an argument to stay with friends, as she often does. He doesn't doubt she'll be back. Jessica smells a mega rat, Especially when most of Alicia's friends say they haven't spoken to her in months. Vega eventually reports his wife as missing, playing the grieving husband role to the hilt.

The local police officer handling the missing persons inquiry for Alicia is Michael Cisneros, the son of an old family friend.

**I received a free copy in exchange for a book review.***

I enjoyed this 23 chapter book. It went back and forth between Jesse and Detective Michael's third person point-of-view. How would you feel if you knew a crime was committed but you couldn't prove it? I'd go crazy. I admired that Jesse didn't give up trying to search for her sister Alicia. And that she didn't give up believing that her parents were murdered. I liked that the main character was strong and took matters into her own hands when the police force wanted to stick a cold case label on the alleged crime.

I liked the backstory that Jesse and Michael knew of each other when they were younger. I always like to see how people's relationships develop after rekindling. It offered good inner conflict scenes for Michael. Following protocol, he couldn't do whatever he wanted without evidence. He had a precinct he had to answer to. However, he didn't want to let Jesse down.

Marcus was Alicia's husband, and let me tell ya, he was a true villain. He made my skin crawl (in a good way). He had the right charisma and good boy image to get away with crimes. I thought the scenes where he terrorized Jesse by playing mind games with her was very interesting. From the beginning, I got a sense of how the story was going to go, so it wasn't really a mystery for me. Instead, it was suspenseful (as in trying to determine when the characters will wise up so they can protect themselves).

The author had a brilliant talent with dialogue. The conversations were really realistic and her dialogue beats helped enhance the vision of how the characters interacted with each other. There were a lot of disagreements that I loved. I really felt bad for Jesse because she'd been dealing with trauma for 12 years, without anyone listening to her. I could picture this novel as a Lifetime movie.

I RECOMMEND this book to read.
