Latent Image by Joshua Graham



Title: Latent Image: A Xandra Carrick Thriller
Author: Joshua Graham
Publisher: Redhaven Books
Pages: 437
Genre: Thriller
For fans of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Sandra Brown, David Baldacci, Brad Thor, and Nora Roberts.

At the height of President Jennifer Bradley’s inaugural parade, a bomb detonates, followed by shots from a sniper’s rifle. She survives despite the numerous casualties including the Chief White House photographer. The authorities apprehend the only surviving suspect, but before they can interrogate him, he dies mysteriously while recovering in the hospital. In an effort to hunt down those responsible and prevent future assassination attempts, Special Agent Wade Masterson of the Secret Service recruits photojournalist Xandra Carrick for a dual-role position as the President’s Photographer and clandestine assistant operative.
Xandra’s uncanny gift of second-sight through the lens of a camera thrusts her straight into the center of a deadly terrorist plot that runs far deeper than anyone in the intelligence community ever imagined. But she may already be too late. In a tale of vengeance, honor and sacrifice, Xandra must draw upon all she has to stop an insidious plot which threatens to bring the country to its knees with a biological weapon that will decimate the nation’s population.

This is the first book I have read by Joshua Graham and thesecond book in the Xandra Carrick series. And yet again a second book I read without reading the first book. I should learn that it can be trivial when doing this. But I will most definately go and read the first book in the series Darkroom.

Author: Liana Brooks
Release Date: November 24, 2015
Publisher: Harper Voyager
Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy
Format: Ebook

A brand new Time & Shadows Mystery!
Agent Samantha Rose has already died once…and knows the exact date she’ll die again.
Having taken down a terrorist organization bent on traveling through time to overthrow the government, Sam figured she was done dealing with the unbelievable. Finally out of backwater Alabama, she’s the senior agent in a Florida district, and her life is back on track.

Until a scientist is found dead. And then an eco-terrorist. And then a clone of herself…again.
As the pieces start to fall together, they paint a picture that seems to defy everything they know about time and physics. But the bodies are all too real, and by partnering up with Agent MacKenzie once more, they might just figure out what’s going on. And when.

Convergence Point is the second book in the Time and Shadows Mystery series. I have not read the first book and that made a bit trivial while reading Convergence Point. But after reading Convergence Point I definately want to read The Day Before.

Excerpt The Moonshadow's Daughter by Kaylie Newell + Giveaway



Aimee did look wild and raw though, like she’d been living on her own longer than Jim had let on. But there was also a vulnerability about her that wouldn’t allow him to leave. She was his patient, regardless of whatever her troubles were now.
“Mmm.” She frowned in her sleep and turned toward him. Her eyes remained closed, her lashes dark smudges above her cheekbones. She mumbled something else and he scooted his chair closer. “His paw.” Her hair was still damp from the bath, and he brushed the long bangs away from her forehead.
“Aimee?” “His paw.” Her brows came together and she turned away. “See? There.” Jake checked the IV drip and felt her forehead again. Her dreams would be strange because of the fever. But it

Yes. Whether it be poems, scripts, novels, songs, hallmark cards; anything! I wanted to be an author from before I can remember.

Everything she Forgot by Lisa Ballantyne + Giveaway

Genre: Thriller / Contemporary
Publisher: William Morrow
Buy the book: Book Depository | Amazon
Source: I received an ecopy for review

Lisa Ballantyne, international bestselling author of The Guilty One, delivers a compelling domestic thriller with impeccably observed characters and masterful edge-of-your-seat storytelling in a novel that leaps between past and present with page-turning finesse
They’re calling it the worst pile-up in London history. Driving home, Margaret Holloway has her mind elsewhere—on a troubled student, her daughter’s acting class, the next day’s meeting—when she’s rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car just seconds before it’s engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.
Though she escapes with minor injuries, Margaret feels that something’s wrong. She’s having trouble concentrating. Her emotions are running wild. More than that, flashbacks to the crash are also dredging up lost associations from her childhood, fragments of events that were wiped from her memory. Whatever happened, she didn’t merely forget—she chose to forget. And somehow, Margaret knows deep down that it’s got something to do with the man who saved her life.
As Margaret uncovers a mystery with chilling implications for her family and her very identity, Everything She Forgot winds through a riveting dual narrative and asks the question: How far would you go to hide the truth—from yourself…?

Everything She Forgot takes place in the present and 1985 and is told from different perspectives. This can be quite confusing but in this case it worked. All the different perspectives gave a whole story, if this was told with only one perspective the book would not have been quite such a great read.

On the road and in over her head, Petty's fight for her life has just begun. Fans of female-powered thrillers will love debut author LS Hawker and her suspenseful tale of a young woman on the run for her future and from the nightmares of her past."
The Drowning Game was most definately a very intriging read. Eventhough the story starts of with quite an opening it does start of a bit slow and it made me wonder a bit how the story would evolve since it was quite an odd start.

Guest Post Andrew Joyce

My name is Andrew Joyce, and I write books for a living. Kim has been kind enough to allow me a little space on her blog to promote my new book, MOLLY LEE. The story is a female-driven account of a young naive girl’s journey into an independent, strong woman and all the trouble she gets into along the way.

Now you may possibly be asking yourself, What is a guy doing writing in a woman’s voice? And that’s a good question. I can only say that I did not start out to write about Molly; she just came to me one day and asked that I tell her story.
Perhaps I should start at the beginning.

My first book was a 164,000-word historical novel. And in the publishing world, anything over 80,000 words for a first-time author is heresy. Or so I was told time and time again when I approached an agent for representation. After two years of research and writing, and a year of trying to secure the services of an agent, I got angry. To be told that my efforts were meaningless was somewhat demoralizing to say the least. I mean, those rejections were coming from people who had never even read my book.

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X!

I participated in this challenge a few years back, but failed...miserably....But I am going to try this again. I love this time of the year and the books that go with it. I am even currently looking for a lot of books to read during this time (although I am not succeeding very well in finding scary reads at the moment)
