5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting characters and incredible suspense!, November 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In this thriller, the killer searches for a voice that can re-enact his famous mother. Young female entertainers are going missing and turning up dead, brutally whipped and terrorized by the serial killer, a sicko with no conscience. His signature card of -do re mi - dumbfounds the officers but they know that this message might help them catch the maniac. Detective Chief Inspector Redd has his constables on the case working from every direction to try and stop this monster from claiming yet another victim. When the villain makes it personal by visiting Redd's co-worker and lady friend who is a profiler and psychiatrist things heat up. Once the murderer decides he needs the help of a hypnotist, he wants the best. She is. Alongside this story is another of even more sinister plotting - that of a paedophile ring where innocent children are being threatened. The two men who work these cases are co-workers who have the safety of their city at heart. This story moves fast with the plot thickening on every page. The riveting characters keep you in suspense to the end.


A Christmas Family Wish (Sweet Contemporary Romance Novella)
A Christmas Family Wish (Sweet Contemporary Romance Novella)
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Just my kind of read!, November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Rachel’s house is destroyed in a freak storm when a tree tears into the upstairs area. A good portion of it lands in her four-year-old son’s bedroom. With the house no longer habitable, she’s forced to accept the help of a man her father mentored years ago. The same guy she’d had a crush on for some time. Ian Harper, the good-looker who’d rejected her and broke her eighteen-year-old heart. A man who now has his own troubles with an ex and a beloved daughter she refuses him access to.
Once started on this book, I couldn’t put it down and have the sleep-deprived, baggy eyes to prove it today. Don’t care though! This novella was worth it. It’s a lovely heart-warming story. Just my kind of read!


Christmas Here And There (Her Christmas Cruise, An Unusual Christmas, Christmas Babies)
Christmas Here And There (Her Christmas Cruise, An Unusual Christmas, Christmas Babies)
Price: $2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down!, November 15, 2013
This box set is a keeper. In Christmas Babies, Madelyn, a doctor with a heart who loves the babies she looks after, gets terrible news that the career she's given up everything for might be over. A sickness she can't heal could be the end of all her dreams. She begins to question why she's ignored romance and the special things in life? Maybe now it's too late? Or maybe it's time to re-evaluate her future and give in to the urge she feels every time she see the good-looking Nick, the man who not only got the promotion she's been fixated on but is also the same guy who makes her heart beat a little faster whenever they're together. When a story is about babies and love, written beautifully with special characters, it's just so darn hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner!, November 12, 2013
This review is from: Birdie's Nest (Kindle Edition)
The fact that this is a time travel story is what prompted me to buy the book in the first place and I'm really glad that I did. The villain, Samuelson, wants to tear down her home, Birdie's Nest for financial gain in 2012. Miss Birdie Braxton has 60 days to pay her back taxes or he'll see his ambitions becoming reality. As of the 1st of Aug, her house would go on the Auction block and be snapped up by this man. As a Texas Ranger, she has a job to do at a costume ball on board his boat and because of a bit of magic, she ends up in Waco Texas in 1890. A RANCHER, Tad Lockhart and his sister save her from drowning and when she wakes up there's hell to pay. This story is a real page-turner that just keeps getting better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A darn good read!!, November 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Business owner, Kathryn Carlyle, has a tremendous shock when billionaire software developer Connor Harrison drops dead at the party she's catered. The police consider her a "person of interest." In other words, they tell her in no uncertain terms - don't leave town. It's the last thing they say when they drop her off after interrogating her for hours. Then if the day isn't bad enough, some wacko in a truck almost runs her over and doesn't bother to stick around to see if she survives. Holt Rand, an out-of-work reporter sent by her uncle, arrives on the scene and rescues her. From this point on her life spirals out of control and getting the story is what keeps her only friend close. This debut book has it all. Fast-paced, plot-driven conflicts and characters that you can't tear yourself away lift it from an ordinary story to a darn good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great deal!, October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have read and reviewed a number of these books and I'm happy to tell you that you that this is a great deal. From the evils of international sex trade to a mind twisting space opera, you will thoroughly enjoy the wild ride. From authors who've been tried, tested and in many cases have reached the best-seller status you just can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids will love this story!!, October 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Misha and the Spooky Halloween Party is exactly the kind of book I love to read to the little ones. There are lots of places in the great illustrations where you can point and say "what's this?" or "show me where you see this?" The story started and ended featuring the children having a lot of fun doing the things children love to do like `hiding the stone' and `car racing'. The author included Misha's friends, his parents and even the neighborhood animals as being a part of the celebrations in such a smooth way that it made the story absolutely lovely!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, October 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Always and Forever is how this book is ended and it was hard to read the words through my tears. It's a book that parents can buy for a child who is going through or will be going through a similar experience, losing someone they love. Written in rhyme, the author had to have worked very hard to make sure each word fit perfectly because it did!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful collection!!, October 10, 2013
Nancy Radke is a wonderful author and her having put out this boxed set is fabulous. Since I hadn't yet bought all these books, I can now get them under one cover. Her characters are interesting and her details of setting pull you into the story. I've always enjoyed reading about families and how they work together and the Traherns in this set are just that kind of kinfolk. It's a treat you won't regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful characters drive this story!, October 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Characters are what drive this story - wonderful characters! Like Rachel who loves to read tarot cards and tells her friend Stephanie that she's always wanted a boyfriend who's a model type of guy. At first when she starts her job as a counselor at summer camp, she thought she'd found him in Channing. Not so! Dylan, a burn victim, badly scarred and terribly shy, teaches her that being with someone who "gets you" - who makes you feel more like yourself than ever before is her real King of Wands. It takes time and help from Madame Ariana's tarot card reading to help her figure it all out. Mystery, romance and fine writing have turned this book into a favorite of mine and a must read for you. Seriously, treat yourself and those you care about!
