"...each chapter left me wanting more so it was almost impossible to put down, I love that in a book." ~ A Book Lover's Emporium Book Blog
"Lyz put her all into this romantic thriller. Blinded is a perfect mix of love, lust, mystery and suspense. From Mara's loss to Joey's determination to bring his brother's death to a closure, Lyz hits the spot with this page turner." ~ We Stole You Book Boyfriend Blog
From the Author
For some, there is a point in a person's life where there is a complete and utter moment of clarity. I was a week from graduating high school when my first moment came. My mother and I got a phone call from a hospital in Maryland that my brother, Sam, a US Naval Corpsman, had died. That single moment changed me. Changed how I looked at and lived my life. When a Navy detail showed up the next morning, my emotions closed inward, and I was thrown into an all-consuming numbness.
For me, personally, I wanted to re-explore those few months of trying to hold onto the past, knowing everything in my life was going to be different from that day forward. My best friend was gone, and he wouldn't be coming back.
I hope you enjoy reading Joey and Mara's story about their struggle to adjust to their new lives and finding a satisfying comfort in each other's arms.

Mara lost her sight and her family in a horrendous crash. She adapted and took over her mom's floral business, but there was little to no margin, even with help. She was not expecting Joey, her first love, back in town. Joey is back in his hometown after 10 years away. Someone gunned down his brother Sam, the sheriff. The local deputies seem incompetent... or clueless. He was needed back in Seattle PD, but something smells wrong in the area. As the two met, and got reacquainted, someone is stalking her... Is it related to his brother's murder? When the town offered the sheriff's position to Joey, will he accept or refuse? What will Mara say about that?
The chemistry between Mara and Joey is confusing, as I said before. Sure, it's reunion, but nothing too special there. There's a story arc about a giant conspiracy that killed Joey's brother Sam, the previous sheriff. And that conspiracy wasn't resolved yet. Mara's "fiancee" was introduced way too late to be a credible threat. All in all, the story just left feeling "meh".
This is my first Lyz Kelley book and will definitely NOT be my last. Highly recommended
Elkridge Series, Book 1
By: Lyz Kelley
Narrated by: Meghan Kelly
I thoroughly enjoyed the story, it captivated me from start to end! This is my fist book by Lyz Kelley and I did not know what to expect so I was pleasantly surprised about how much I liked it. She is a talented author & skilled writer. The storylines she created are original, realistic and relatable. They are interesting & filled with drama, twists, suspense and a whole lot of heart. The characters are complex and well developed. I just adored Mara, with all the loss and sorrow in her life, as well as hardships she the picture of strength. Joey has not been home 10 years, after college and relocated to Seattle for an investigative career in law enforcement. He returns home for his brother’s funeral. On his first day back he stops in the towns florist and sees Mara for the 1st time in years. The two instantly click, I loved these two together, how he described things to her, how she shared her heighten sensory abilities with him. Joey, not happy with how the sheriffs office is handing the investigation of his brother’s death he starts looking in to it and Mara was an asset at his side. I was rooting for these two and cheered towards the end. I am looking forward to find out what is really going on in Elkridge. With a new Sheriff in town more should get uncovered. Lyz Kelley, thank you for this awesome story, I hope the rest of the series becomes available on Audible soon.
I listened to the Audible edition, Meghan Kelly is an amazing narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. She put a lot of heart in to this story, she makes you feel the characters emotions. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to! Thank you for another awesome listen🎧
Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession
Joey returns to his hometown to attend the funeral of his brother, Sam. Sam was the sheriff of Elkridge, and was shot under mysterious circumstances. His first stop is the flower shop, where he runs into Mara, a girl from high school. Mara has had her own share of tragedy. She survived a car accident that claimed the lives of her parents and sister. Survival wasn't without cost though. Mara sustained severe injuries and eventually lost her sight. Amid the grief and fear stirred by Sam's murder, Joey and Mara connect - both igniting long simmering crushes. As Joey's week at home stirs up emotions, questions, and a desire to find his brother's killer, the need to to return to his job in Seattle pulls him in the opposite direction. Will he stay? Will he go? Will Mara let herself believe someone could love her despite the damage done by the accident?
Amid the emotions of trying to sort out love, there are several other things going on around Joey and Mara. Family issues. Financial issues. Business issues. And the larger questions - who killed Sam? Why? Is the police department in Elkridge really inept? Or are they deliberately so? What had Sam stumbled upon? How does the FBI figure in? What about the odd purchases at the local stores? And who is stalking Mara? Looking for the answers is enough for me to continue the series. Enjoy.
