REVIEW OF BENEATH THE SURFACE

BENEATH THE SURFACE (Dive Team Investigations Book 1) Lynn H. Blackburn Revell Pub. March 6th, 2018   BENEATH THE SURFACE by Lynn H. Blackburn has both suspense and romance although it has more of an emphasis on the relationship between the two main characters, Leigh Weston and Ryan Parker. It is interesting how she weaves everything in the plot around the Dive Team, including relationships between the team members, the victim, and the outside experts.  The sarcastic banter between the characters allows for a humorous interlude. Because she wants to emphasize the character interaction, she noted, “When we pitched the series my editors...

BIRTHDAY GIRL MATTHEW IDEN March 20, 2018 Thomas & Mercer A good thriller is only as good as it’s hook, and with BIRTHDAY GIRL, Matthew Iden hooks the reader right in the heart.

She brings them home and locks them in her rundown house. The one on the edge of the woods with the boarded up windows and locked doors. She dresses them in old time-y, Howdy Doody-style clothes. And almost worse of all, she renames them. She gives them the names of her lost family. And then...

INTERVIEW WITH CHRISTOPHER RICE

    BONE MUSIC’s story by Christopher Rice is not a classical melody, but more like hard rock. The scenes are riveting and realistic enough that there is an element of believability, alternating between a thriller and the fringes of science fiction.

Luckily for...
