Featuring a chilling cast of villains, these stories tell the tale of strong heroines forced to make perilous snap decisions in their quest to outwit evil. With an abundance of intrigue and danger, each masterful mystery is sure to leave you breathless.
I’m always on the lookout for a new suspense novel to read. This one is amazing because it has novellas by 4 of my very favorite suspense authors. I’m excited to get to tell you about it. I’ll talk a bit about each of the novellas.
First up is Bridge of Trust by Traci Hunter Abramson. Ethan in this one happens upon a grisly scene as an FBI agent trying to find his mark. There’s a young mother with her baby and a dead body across the room.
This novella moves fast! I loved the way the reader could never tell what was coming next. Neither could the characters and that made it all the more great. I loved this one!
Next is Corrupted by Clair M Poulson. This one features Jay as a local policeman. He’s a good policeman, asked to help look into others in their department. Things get a little crazy when girls start being kidnapped. It’s up to Jay to find them.
I loved this one too! I loved the way the author shows several different perspectives as things happen. The reader is able to know what’s happened, but not why. I loved the way this kept the bad guy veiled from the reader, as well as from the characters. That kept me from guessing just who the bad guy was.
Then there’s Gregg Luke’s Insidious. This one scared me the most out of all of them. Gregg Luke writes books about illnesses that are real. And that to me is probably the most scary thing, knowing that what he describes could really happen to someone that I know and love.
Insidious features Andrew and his wife Taryn. I loved the way the reader is able to see things about Andrew through both of their eyes. The mystery in this one kept me guessing. Just what was wrong with Andrew and why? I loved the way Taryn worked tirelessly to figure it out. And she didn’t get discouraged when the doctor tried to brush her off.
Last up is Stephanie Black’s Something Beautiful for Something Evil. I loved Kate in this one. She’s newly married to Colby and they’ve just moved to the Boston area, where Kate has a new job at The Treasure Chest, a local shop.
This is one of those books where I wanted to shout at the main character to watch out. I had guessed from the beginning who the bad guy was. I just didn’t know how things were going to play out. It’s always kind of fun when you’re right about things like that. I kind of enjoy being safe at home and reading a book where you know there’s danger around every corner.
This is one book I didn’t want to put down. Make sure to grab your own copy!
I was sent a copy of Entangled as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
