GONE is the perfect title for this riveting romantic suspense novel. Gone is FBI Special Agent Clare Marshall’s youth when her crazed mother rips Clare and her siblings apart with an act of unimaginable violence. Gone is Clare’s baby sister who is whisked away that very day. Many years later, as Clare’s mother is about to be executed by lethal injection, Clare finds a lead on the location of her sister. Clare travels to South Carolina to meet the young woman she has not seen in nearly twenty years, but when Clare gets there she finds out that her sister is gone. Although the reason for Beth’s disappearance seems explicable at first, the suspense starts Clare on a wild ride.
Along with her on that ride is FBI Special Agent, Jake Sutton, a flame from the past. He provides the proper dose of romance that I look for in a romantic suspense. And as Clare closes in on her sister, she too will be gone at the same hands of evil that have claimed Beth. You can purchase GONE for $2.99 today.
 

Tempo Rubato: (99 cents) Written by Brendan Carroll, some might categorize this novel’s genre as time-travel, or quite simply, fantasy. Tempo Rubato was written with such conviction that I cannot classify it as either. This novel reads as a tale of suspense that is contemporary and could absolutely be feasible.
Elisse Manheim, armed with her gifted aptitude and an extensive knowledge of Wolgang Amadeus Mozart embarks on a thrilling adventure as she leads her own investigation into the murder of one of her ex-students. With an intellect and education on Mozart to equal her own, Elisse has met her match in William Masters, a composer sequestered away in the cryptic Left Field facility that is now her new employer. William Masters knowledge on the legendary composer far surpasses that of Elisse to the point that she suspects he could actually be Mozart.
Nothing is what it appears to be at Left Field, and Elisse is wise to trust no one. Yet the temptation of William Masters is far too great to resist. As was this book!
Sleight Malice: (99 cents) Vicki Tyley is a dominant author in the mystery genre. I hate to resort to the cliché, “I couldn’t put it down”, but honestly the term applied when it came to this book. Desley James, the protagonist, was very real to me. When we first meet her, she is not a woman with superhuman emotional strength, which is what helped me to relate to her. But she was stubborn, and persistent in her quest to determine the fate of her best friend when the police are too slow with their investigation.
Vicki Tyley introduces us to a host of suspects and takes us across Australia on several leads that Desley deftly digs up. And as Desley gets closer to determining the fate of her friend, the danger escalates.
The Australian setting was something I enjoyed tremendously. We read for escape, and yet inevitably, no matter what the book, we walk away having learned something. I was delighted to learn that what I call a windbreaker here in America is referred to as a windcheater in Australia. That made me smile. Ms. Tyley makes me smile with her mysteries as well.
The First Victim: ($3.99) This book made me nervous, literally. That is a good thing considering it was designed to. Emily Wright is forced to face her traumatic past when she returns to her home town of Lakeside Acres. Fifteen years ago she escaped from the hands of a sadistic killer. In Lakeside Acres, the Baby Doll Strangler is still waiting for the one that got away.
When I say this book made me nervous, I felt that I was literally in the van with Emily when she is captured. Her fear became my fear. The last quarter of this novel was written with such eloquent suspense that I had to have the light on and the blanket clutched in my hand.
One would not expect an element of romance in a novel such as this, and yet, Bailey, the Lakeside Acres deputy provided the right touch to let us know that Emily’s life was not so grim. There was a future for her as long as she could survive the ride in the van. The First Victim was written by JB Lynn.
