Murder Ahoy!: A laugh out loud cozy mystery. (The Bella Tyson Mysteries Book 2) By: Fiona Leitch

51ABkmKMEyL._SY346_Famous crime writer Bella Tyson is hired to co-host a Murder Mystery cruise, on a luxury liner sailing from Southampton to New York. She’s expecting an easy ride; fun and games, surrounded by amateur sleuths and fans of her books, all the while staying in a deluxe cabin and enjoying the spa and the amazing restaurants on board, culminating in a visit to one of her favourite cities in the world – the Big Apple.

She’s NOT expecting to be stuck on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic with her two least favourite people in the world, her hot but unfaithful bastard ex-husband Joel Quigley and fellow crime writer, bitch goddess and Twitter frenemy, Louise Meyers. And when real live dead bodies start turning up – as well as fake not-really-dead bodies – Bella’s dreams of being pampered on the high seas turn sour.

Accused of a murder she would have liked to commit but didn’t, and helped (or hindered) by a gang of unlikely detectives, can Bella find out who the real murderer is before the ship reaches its destination and New York’s finest drag her off?

“A sexy, wildly funny read that will keep you guessing right to the end. The queen of the ‘cromcom’ mashup at her best!” Sandy Barker, author of ‘One Summer in Santorini’

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you

Wow Wow, another book in this series.  This is the second book to the series and I loved it.  I really hope that there will be another on to follow.  I love how this author keeps you interested from the start to the end of the book.  Through out the book I was trying to guess who the killer was, and each time that I thought I knew who did it, I was wrong.  I never guessed and I was surprised to learn who it was.

If you like page-turning suspense and fast-paced thrillers, you’ll love Murder Ahoy.  This is the second book that I have read by this author and I loved it.

To Hell in a Handbasket

51qq+B+Es2LFrom the Queen of Scream comes a novel that will raise the hair on the back of your neck.

To the neighbors, they’re sweet old ladies. To Tim Robertson, they’re his worst nightmare

Not every grandmotherly type bakes cookies.

What’s more frightening than finding out that the kindly old ladies living across the street from you are anything but?

As a child, Tim Robertson is selling cookies with his best friend Damien when they knock on the door of the house across the street from him. Two old ladies open the door and Tim never sees his best friend again.

Twenty years later, Tim has tried to move on and forget what happened back then. He is married, has a son, and just bought the house of his dreams in small town Cocoa Beach. When the house across the street from them is sold, they are all looking forward to getting new neighbors, until Tim realizes the old ladies are back to haunt him and the rest of the town.

To Hell in a Handbasket is Willow Rose, when she is at her most horrifying. Every page of this book is oozing with dread, and this novel stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best of Koontz and King. Anyone who has read a Willow Rose book knows it’s harder to put the book down than to just finish it.

My Thoughts:
I love reading her books, I enjoy her style of writing.  Although this one I had a hard time getting into it, I had to push my self to finish it.  The style of this book was a different from her other books.
I felt the characters do things no human being would ever do. I also thought that certain items appear in the story out of sheer convenience.  I just didn’t feel the characters or the story line in this book.  I am giving it three stars.

Emma’s life changes the day Ruben Templeton walks in and asks her out on a date. Over dinner, she’s a little disappointed when his best friend, Jesse Kimball, joins them. Jesse is a senator’s son who just announced his candidacy for mayor.
Twenty-seven-year-old Emma is surprised, but excited when it’s Jesse who calls her the next day instead of Ruben.

Jesse introduces Emma to a life with mansions, expensive cars, cocktail dresses, and status. It doesn’t take long for him to sweep her off her feet. He’s handsome and charming, making her feel like the center of his universe.

When Emma receives devastating news, Jesse asks her to marry him. From the moment she agrees, their relationship starts to deteriorate. Desperate to understand why her new husband is so cold and distant, she reaches out to him, only to be met by anger.
Hurt and confused, Emma turns to Ruben for advice.

Ruben suggests they give each other space for a few weeks. Weeks she can use to help him locate his younger brother Axel, who has gone missing. Emma agrees, and soon finds herself on a road trip across the country.

Will Emma and Jesse’s temporary separation clear the distance between them, or will she find love in the arms of another man?

Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Synopsis:

Bane Illes never smiled.
He never spoke.
But each day, that brooding wizard gave Janiver Benoit a glance.
And when she could not take another quiet stare, or the warmth that look sent over her skin, she took from Bane something he’d never give freely—one lingering, soul knocking kiss.
Ten years later, someone has stolen the one thing that keeps magic hidden from the mortals in Crimson Cove and only Janiver can recover it. But returning to her hometown means she’ll have to face the past and all the secrets she left buried there, including the one person she promised herself she’d never see again. The dangerous wizard that might make leaving Crimson Cove the last thing she wants to do.

*FORGOTTEN MAGIC was previously independently released as CRIMSON COVE. However, Eden has since sold the rights to City Owl Press and the book has been replotted, rewritten, and kicks off the new Crimson Coves trilogy which follows witch Janiver Benoit and her siblings as they try to unravel the well-hidden secrets that have destroyed their family.

5 thrillers to read if you you loved ‘The Silent Patient’

If you read and loved The Silent Patient, here are five psychological thrillers we think you’ll enjoy.

The Practice of Deceit

When Eric Lavender gives up his perch as one of Manhattan’s hippest and most eligible psychotherapists, it’s to marry the sexy Colleen O’Brien Golden, and he’s so besotted he considers trading Manhattan for married life in the suburbs a bargain. But heroically helping police during a hostage crisis leads to revelations about secrets in Colleen’s past, and those secrets land Eric in handcuffs — maybe for a long, long time — in this sharp thriller that goes from marital bliss to mayhem in no time flat.

Too Close

Too CloseForensic psychiatrist Emma is tasked with determining if suburban housewife Connie can stand trial for the heinous crime with which she’s been charged. The more time Emma spends with Connie, though, the more Connie feels like a friend, not a patient. Is Connie an innocent woman being railroaded for a crime she didn’t commit, or is she a master manipulator, about to penetrate Emma’s professional distance and pull her into a dangerous game? Two narrators and one cat-and-mouse game drive this powerful thriller.

SomeTimes I LieSometimes I Lie

When Amber wakes up in a hospital, she is in a coma, unable to move or communicate, or even open her eyes. But she can hear the people around her, including a therapist who advocated shock therapy, and as she tried to piece together what has brought her to this point, she observes three things: she’s in a coma, her husband doesn’t love her anymore, and sometimes she lies. That last may be the only truth this unreliable narrator tells in this claustrophobic and unsettling thriller as it hurtles through a series of twists, pivots, and shocking reveals.

All is not ForgottenAll Is Not Forgotten

The small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, is picture-perfect, until the night local teenager Jenny Kramer is raped at a party. After she is given a controversial drug to medically erase memories of the attack, neither Jenny nor her family are prepared for the effects of her emotional memories of the rape. And when they seek psychiatric help as a family, all it does is widen fissures that already existed in the marriage. Meanwhile, the hunt for the rapist sets everyone on edge and leads to a succession of poor choices that drive this thriller to its stunning conclusion.

HeartsickHeartsick

The beautiful, deadly Gretchen Lowell puts the psycho firmly in psychological thriller in Heartsick. Portland detective Archie Sheridan spent a decade chasing a therapist-turned–serial killer, only to be captured and then tortured by her for 10 days. Now, as addicted to her as he is to painkillers, and unable to get either of his addictions off his mind for long, he visits her weekly in prison. Watching a serial killer play on a detective’s neuroses like she was playing a banjo is the key to this whip-smart thriller that has drawn comparisons to The Silence of the Lambs

The Silent Daughter
by Claire Amarti
Publication date: May 7th 2020
Genres: Adult, Psychological, Suspense

download (2)Synopsis:

Schoolgirl missing, the ticker reads, and the camera cuts to a girl’s face. Blonde hair waterfalling over her shoulders, serious eyes, lips a little parted like she’s about to speak. That’s when I realize I’ve been holding my breath, because the gasp when I inhale almost chokes me.

Sadie Kelly has lost her job. Until last month, she was a teacher at Horton College – the same high school she went to ten years ago along with her best friend, Fiona. But Fiona died in an accident on their graduation night, in circumstances Sadie’s spent the last ten years trying to forget, and since then nothing’s been the same.

Now Sadie’s back where she grew up, jobless, and living temporarily with Fiona’s mother. But when she hears that Devon Hundley, a Horton schoolgirl, has gone missing, everything changes. Devon’s the daughter of Philip Hundley, a man Sadie knows all too well, and Sadie can’t stop thinking about the last time she saw Devon. It was the day Sadie left Horton for good, and heard Devon murmur four little words as she walked away. Four words Sadie prayed she had misheard:

I know your secret.

A gripping page-turner for fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Diane Chamberlain, and Liane Moriarty.

download (3)AUTHOR BIO:

I’m an author who writes suspense stories about ordinary women – women like the ones we all know and love – who find out that their ordinary lives may not be quite so ordinary after all! My hope is that you will root for them, fear for them, and find yourself holding your breath when the action starts to get a little hairy!

When I’m not doing writing, I can be found strolling the streets of Brooklyn, New York City, my adopted home, dodging pigeons and traffic. I moved here a little over eight years ago – I hail from Ireland originally – and never looked back. To me there’s nothing more wonderful than that feeling of finding – or making! – a new home, that mixture of excitement at finding a place in the world, and the comfort of being able to come back to it time and again. That’s what reading feels like for me… and for you too I suspect! It’s also the same joy I get from writing. I hope my books can become a kind of home for you too: a place where you can trust that you’ll find a wonderful adventure, and then land safe and sound at the end of it all, ready to do it all again another day!

thumbnail_Wild Thing Blueblood Vampires

Synopsis:

Savage. Reckless. Wild. These are only some of the words used to describe me. I’m all of those things, and I never wished to be anything else in almost 500 years of existence.

Then she came along. Aurora Leal, the daughter of the High Witch and destined for that role. She’s practically royalty in the magical world, but most importantly, she’s forbidden fruit.

I was taught never to mess with witches, and I had no intention of breaking that rule until the night she crashed into my life. I couldn’t resist the pull, and like an idiot, I succumbed to her charms.

Now I’m screwed. What was supposed to be only a hookup left a permanent mark. I ended up mated to the sassy witch. An eternal commitment wasn’t something I ever wished for, but when your destined mate is promised to someone else, that’s a much bigger problem.

I only have two choices. Either I find a way to break the mating bond or Aurora will become a widow before she says I do. That will definitely start a war between vampires and mages. But the more time I spend with her, the less inclined I am to give her up.

Damn, I guess I’m killing some mages, then.

About Author

A. Claire Everward takes the world far too seriously. She is passionate and sensitive to her surroundings, and tends to fight for what she believes in. She is direct, although she tries not to be, at least not always. She leads a quiet life and prefers to spend time with her characters, and for her escaping into writing is always the best refuge. She would say it maintains her sanity but her sister Kate says that sanity tends to be overrated.
Claire spent years away from home getting a master’s degree in aerospace engineering, with a risk management specialty. During that time, she lived in the university, surrounded by forested hills and too much silence, so to keep away the boredom she also took on an MBA, and now she feels ridiculously over-educated.
She tried to work in her field, she really did, and even put her education to good use in the finance field. But eventually her love for writing took over, and she decided to leave it all and move to the world of her imagination. Her characters had a lot to do with that–they had lived in her mind, waiting patiently for her to be ready, for too long, they felt, and so they finally decided enough is enough and took over. And Claire didn’t put up that much of a resistance. She has always loved to read, but writing, that’s a whole new world she soon knew she could never give up.
Claire lives with her two cats, Mary Boleyn who is much smarter than her and who likes to sit on her laptop just when she wants to write, otherwise she starts throwing stuff off the desk, and Henry VIII who loves to jump on top of the kitchen cabinets and scream at the ceiling. Especially at night.
Nowadays, when she’s not rudely peeping into the lives of her characters, or having in-depth conversations with them, which she does tend to do quite often, Claire actually manages to do some writing. The First is only the first of her novels, with a sequel on its way and a whole new series to follow.

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you

This is the second book that I have read from this author, I really enjoy her books.

This book started out slow for me, and I thought to my self is this going to get better.  I also that it was going to be more of a science fiction, boy was I wrong.   I kept reading and I finally got into the book and could not put it down.  The two main character of this book was investigator Donovan Pierce and Lara,  I love how the author wrote about each of these characters.  When the secret and truth comes out it become more personal for Donovan.

I can’t wait for the next in the series for this,  I will definitely continue with the series.

I highly recommend this and I am giving it 4 stars.
