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!

"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."

I've had this book on my "to-be-read" pile (if that's what I can call the backlog on my Kindle app) for a year. Now that I've read it, I don't know whether to kick myself for not reading it earlier or for having finished it so I don't have the pleasure of looking forward to reading it anew.

Terri Molina has done a masterful job of making the reader turn the pages to find out what's going to happen next in heroine Jesse Pena's search for her missing sister Alicia. She's sure her brother-in-law, Marcus Vega, is the culprit but, then, she was sure he was behind the deaths of her parents when she was in high school. She couldn't prove it then. She can't prove his guilt now, either.

The local police aren't impressed with her accusations. Except for Michael Cisneros who remembers her from before and whose father had been Jesse's mentor. It'll be up to him to work the case--officially or unofficially--while at the same time protecting Jesse.

The great thing about this book is the reader suspects from the outset that Jesse is right and feels her frustration at having nothing going right in bringing the guy to justice. We struggle along with her as the whole case seems to blow up time after time with dead ends and no place to go only to have a new piece of evidence unearthed. And then, in the end, to have it all wrapped up with justice done and the heroine and hero happy.

Good writing. Good suspense. Good read.

I quite enjoyed Terri Molina's book, HOUSE OF CARDS. She creates memorable characters. You find yourself caught up in Jesse's frustration in her search for her sister. The sister's husband, Marcus, is well developed and you want to jump inside the book and strangle him. Good read from the beginning to the end.

Let me preface this book review by stating it is a joy to read stories where the setting feels like home. (Texas) The fast-paced thrilling murder story leads you through a path of possible conclusions. I would say mystery, but the foreshadowing was overt. This story was about finding proof. One of the things I admire about Molina's writing is the way she can use her craft to unravel clues slowly building a case so to speak against the antagonist. Little by little she allows you to gather more information mounting undeniable evidence.

House of Cards had me a little on the edge of my seat as I wanted the antagonist to be caught. As the story develops it follows with a predictable ease; however, the ending surprised me as it also depicted a feeling of empowerment. Flashbacks and memories the main character displayed mounted evidence in my mind. As a reader, I slowly started mounting my own evidence similar to what I would do if I were watching an Episode of Matlock or Bones without the strong forensics. Molina usually writes a little more romance in her other books, but the subtle romantic innuendos were enough for this serious and at times sad story. The cultural aspects of this novel in the title was witty. If you like a quick and nice read about plots of murder, then this is a book for you. It begins then it ends, there are no stagnant parts in House of Cards. It is like a piece of candy, you can't eat (read) just one.If you read this story, you will definitely want to read another of Molina's work.-M.Espinola

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.
