Mind Games by Stephanie Black

Mind Games by Stephanie Black

A Twisty-Turner Psychological Thriller MIND GAMES is book 2 in a new series featuring psychologist Natalie Marsh. The first book is NOT A WORD, which I haven’t reviewed here, but which was great. We’re introduced to Natalie and her personal story in that book. You don’t have to read that one to enjoy MIND GAMES, but it helps you to understand some of Natalie’s motivations and reactions. In MIND GAMES, Natalie is once again swept up in a mystery, where it soon becomes apparent that […]

Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt

Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt

Although I’m part of a book tour, I bought my own copy of Pimpernel. Leverage. Mission Impossible. Pimpernel. Yep. If you like those first two, you’re going to love Pimpernel! Although Pimpernel is marketed as a romantic suspense—and there is enough romance to make that an accurate description—I was so much more intrigued with the suspense part of the story. There were secret identities, twists and turns, cons within cons, with just a bit of romance. Pimpernel seriously reminded me of some of my favorite […]

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

Part Spy Thriller, Part Historical Lost King is book #2 in the Omar Zagouri series. The series includes Finding Sheba (book 1, which I read and liked) and Beneath (a novella, which I have not yet read). Like Finding Sheba, which alternates between the current day adventures of Omar Zaguori and the historical story of Queen of Sheba, Lost King alternates between Zaguori and the Egyptian female pharaoh we now refer to as Hatshepsut. The interplay between story of the lost scrolls which might change […]

{Review} Played for a Fool by Stephanie Black

{Review} Played for a Fool by Stephanie Black

First off, up front, I own almost all of Stephanie Black’s books, in paperback, most of them I’ve bought with my own money. This one she sent me in exchange for a review. Since I’ve fan-girled over her for years, she probably thought that was a pretty good investment on her part. And she was right. When I read Stephanie’s first book, The Believer, I didn’t know her at all. The book had an interesting premise, it was on sale, and I picked it up […]

Cold as Ice by Stephanie Black

Cold as Ice by Stephanie Black

I love Stephanie Black’s mysteries. Her dark and twisty book, Fool Me Twice, is one of my all-time favorites. Like that book, Cold As Ice is LDS suspense. While religion does not play a big part in the story, it is mentioned occasionally and LDS beliefs on repentance and forgiveness are part of the motivating forces behind some of the characters’ actions. However, it’s not at all preachy and I doubt non-LDS readers would be offended by it. I wasn’t immediately captivated by Abigail’s personality. […]

Freefall by Traci Hunter Abramson

Freefall by Traci Hunter Abramson

Freefall is the first book in the Saint Squad series. The Saint Squad is a Navy SEAL team where most of the members belong to the LDS (Mormon) church. Not all of the team members are LDS but they are all good guys. Each book in this series focuses on a different member of the team and a suspenseful mission. And there’s usually a romantic adventure, as well. I bought this one when it first came out but it sat in my To Read pile […]

Fool Me Twice by Stephanie Black

Fool Me Twice by Stephanie Black

Stephanie Black is one twisted sister! Fool Me Twice is her second novel published by Covenant. I loved her first one, The Believer, but I love, love, love this one! I cannot believe the twists and turns in this book. This is an LDS suspense thriller. There are some religious elements to it but no one gets baptized in the end. I found that very believable. It’s not preachy and Stephanie doesn’t beat us over the head with the Book of Mormon stick. If you’re […]
