Saturday Selection ~ A Criminal Mind by Julia Derek

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

Ending the year with a psychological thriller. Oh yeah. Another new to me author and one I’m looking forward to reading.

@juliaderekNY is the author and I’m excited to read this thriller.

Rose Nichols’s husband Mark is shot to death while walking the dog one night. When Rose learns what’s happened, she’s shocked but not sad. Mark used to beat her so much that she started drinking as a coping mechanism for their fractured marriage.
Detectives Cooper and White are put on the case. Cooper believes Rose is behind her husband’s death, while White suspects it was the privileged assistant general manager at the health club Mark managed.
The deeper they get into the investigation, the more complex it becomes and the stranger Rose acts. Her erratic behavior makes her seem so guilty even White agrees she must be the perp. Unfortunately, no hard evidence points to her, only at the assistant GM. Cooper and White are at a loss—who killed Mark?

New Release ~ Vindication

Monday, December 25th, 2017

Happy December.

It’s my last release of the year. This is book 3 of Theta Corps. And yes, for those of you who were asking about him, this is Beauregard’s story.

vindication_800

What happens after all those years of sniping at one another when they are alone together?

Beauregard Jackson has a reputation of being a ladies man. It never bothered him until an ex shows up from his past and makes his life hell. When she goes after the one woman he’s never dated but has loved truly, Beau takes action.

Shanon “Mino” Tumelo has spent years putting off her own dreams to work at Theta Corps. Since she’d quit there, she’d gone back to medical school and was months away from finishing when she’s yanked back into that world.

While she and Beau work together, she struggles to fight her feelings for him, aware he’s not a long-term kind of man. Beau, however, wants to change her mind for she’s the one he wants. Can he convince her of his love for her?

Saturday Selection ~ The 14th Colony by Steve Berry

Saturday, December 23rd, 2017

I can’t even begin to tell you how big of a fan I am of Steve Berry. He’s an automatic buy for me. But I read his work from cover to cover so I have to make sure I have a day to devote before I can allow myself to start. This is that weekend.

What happens if both the president and vice-president-elect die before taking the oath of office? The answer is far from certain—in fact, what follows would be nothing short of total political chaos.
Shot down over Siberia, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, a man whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States.
Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still embedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C. Noon on January 20th—Inauguration Day—is only hours away. A flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, have opened the door to disaster and Zorin intends to exploit both weaknesses to their fullest.
Armed with a weapon leftover from the Cold War, one long thought to be just a myth, Zorin plans to attack. He’s aided by a shocking secret hidden in the archives of America’s oldest fraternal organization—the Society of Cincinnati—a group that once lent out its military savvy to presidents, including helping to formulate three invasion plans of what was intended to be America’s 14th colony—Canada.
In a race against the clock that starts in the frozen extremes of Russia and ultimately ends at the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront a crippling fear that he’s long denied, but which now jeopardizes everything. Steve Berry’s trademark mix of history and speculation is all here in this provocative new thriller.

Saturday Selection ~ Linc: Lost Gods by LaVerne Thompson

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

Of course I need another paranormal read before the end of the year and what better way to get my fix than with an author I have the privilege of calling friend. She’s an amazing author and a wonderful friend. @lavernethompson has this great series and this is Book 3 in the Lost Gods series.

All the gods are dead. Long live the gods. I am aware.
Linc had grown up having to kill to protect himself and his best friend. So, death and he were intimate friends. Then when his best friend turned out to be non-other than the Greek god Zeus and needed him to once again watch his back, Linc had no choice but to grab his Glock and say, hell yes.
Little did he know, he had many trials to go through to be able to help his friend. Not the least of which was helping a woman conquer her fears and not run from a man like him. But she was an integral part of his existence. He could not let her go.
Mina had resigned herself to being alone all her life. She could trust no one with her secrets, she couldn’t even trust herself. She’d been forced to kill to protect those secrets and she didn’t want to risk the one man who might have accepted them. Not after she’d almost cost him his life. Yet, help him she must. It was her destiny, she just couldn’t bring herself to believe it.
Includes a bonus chapter of Sea Bride- Children of the Waves.
Other books in the Lost Gods Series. Must be read in order.
Zeus
Ledo
Linc

Saturday Selections ~ Death by Diamonds by Tony Berry

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

New author to me but I do love mysteries and the title alone snagged me.

This is Book 3 in the Bromo Perkins Mystery series.

51np0r9NsuL._AC_US327_QL65_

Former British secret agent Bromo Perkins’ bid for a quiet life as a one-man travel agency in Melbourne is about to explode…
Bromo survives mainly on coffee and malt whisky and blends street-wise hardness with a soft touch with the ladies.
But before he can say ‘Laphroaig’ events are swirling around him and he doesn’t know why – starting with a murdered girl, Tamsyn, who is found to have swallowed diamonds.
Why had she been taken under the wing of one of Bromo’s lady loves who then directs him to a seedy diamond merchant?
Why does the jeweller warn him off and who would mug Bromo shortly after?
And why are there youths stalking him, delivering cryptic messages attached to dodgy diamonds and taking their orders from a gun-toting undercover agent using past liaisons to coerce him into action?
It is a whirlpool with no visible source.
And Bromo’s past seems set to haunt him. When all he wants is to be left alone why are his former masters so closely watching him?
They may have unjustly banished him to the far side of the globe for one small stuff-up, but they have never forgotten him – or set him free.
The tentacles of intrigue stretch far beyond his adopted city in Australia – back to London and across the Indian Ocean to the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya in civil war-torn Sri Lanka.
He struggles to decipher events – from his early contacts with the Sri Lankans, the explosive raid on their café and the warning from the jeweller, a bruising hit-run attack and an encounter with the enigmatic Mr Blood.
Bromo also experiences an emotional reunion with his daughter Jess, who is committed to the worldwide war on a deadly diamond trade…
