#BookTour #BookReview: Visions (Same Face Different Place Book 2) by Helen Christmas @SFDPBeginnings @rararesources

Visions

BLURB

Visions is a psychological thriller set in rural England. The year is 1985. It’s been 12 years since Eleanor escaped London, discarding the fragments of her tragic past to discover a new life. She is hiding in a remote country village, a place where she truly believes she is safe.

Her neighbour, James Barton-Wells is desperate to save his historic country house from ruin but this has attracted the attention of a wealthy property developer from London whose seemingly altruistic offer to ‘bankroll the restoration’ masks a sinister game plan. Suspicious of his motives, Eleanor consults her friend, Charles Bailey. But Charlie has his own story, fearful that Perry Hampton is the man who undoubtedly destroyed his own life.

The characters are drawn together in a battle to save Westbourne House, oblivious to the menace that surrounds them. Threats, stalking and deception lie at the root of the Hamptons evil. Yet it is not until Eleanor comes face to face with them, she recognises a deadly enemy from the past.

Can Eleanor unravel the clues that conceal an evil crime committed in the 70s? This book will draw you into a world of suspense with shocking psychological twists you will never see coming…

MY REVIEW

It had been 12 years since a young, frightened and pregnant Eleanor had fled London to escape the men who had murdered the man she loved.  She vowed to “create a society where everyone will be able to live in safety”, and thought she had found just the place to raise her son until several deadly men “stepped out of one horrific chapter in her life only to jump into another without warning”.  They were determined to ruin the lives of the people she loved and who helped her when she needed them most.  How can she repay their kindness when her knowledge of a deadly conspiracy in the 70s could put everyone in danger?

The second book in the Same Face Different Place series is as suspenseful as the first.  Ms. Christmas effectively creates cunning and sinister antagonists that give the reader a high level of intense foreboding.  In contrast, her protagonists become stronger as they find kindness in others while their world is crumbling around them giving the reader hope that goodness will persevere.  The uncertainty of what will happen next to Eleanor and her son, keeps the reader glued to the story hoping that Eleanor will get her day of reckoning.  A wonderful series that I cannot wait to continue.

Helen J. Christmas lives on the south coast with her husband. With a love of writing since childhood, she started her decade-spanning thriller series ‘Same Face Different Place’ in 2011 and published her debut novel, ‘Beginnings’ in 2012. Visions was the second book of the series and published in 2013; a suspense novel which explores British culture and social history in the 80s as well as the most evil traits people are capable of. The 16th Century cottage in which Helen lives with her husband (restored in 1991) provided endless inspiration for Visions, along with some very special places in Sussex that she loves. Writing is something she fits around her family and social life. Helen is a self-employed web designer and works from home with her husband, Peter. They enjoy the company of a faithful border collie and a beautiful white cat, though Helen confesses to having dreamed up many of her storylines, whilst walking Barney around the nearby beach and park.

A natural-born trapper and hunter raised in the Alaskan wilderness, Tracy Petrikoff spends her days tracking animals and running with her dogs in the remote forests surrounding her family’s home. Though she feels safe in this untamed land, Tracy still follows her late mother’s rules: Never Lose Sight of the House. Never Come Home with Dirty Hands. And, above all else, Never Make a Person Bleed.

But these precautions aren’t enough to protect Tracy when a stranger attacks her in the woods and knocks her unconscious. The next day, she glimpses an eerily familiar man emerge from the tree line, gravely injured from a vicious knife wound—a wound from a hunting knife similar to the one she carries in her pocket. Was this the man who attacked her and did she almost kill him? With her memories of the events jumbled, Tracy can’t be sure.

#BookReview: Right Handed Lefty by Ryan Coughlin @RyanWCoughlin #CHBBPublishing

cover119630-medium

As long as Ellis Sayre could remember, he wanted to know his real parents. He was Native American and had the brown skin to prove it. Which exact tribe was a mystery; he didn’t have the luxury of that information. It was hard for him to gauge why he was the way he was. Awkward. Difficult. Disinterested.

Ellis was lacking in self-confidence, had sensitive nerves, would have anxiety attacks, and could not play badminton if his life depended on it. Considering that Ellis was the “most unwanted child under one year old” at the orphanage, was returned to the orphanage by his first adoptive parents, and felt like an outsider with his new adoptive parents, it was no wonder he considered himself different and unwanted. However, his friends George, defender of the less fortunate, and Mason, the wisecracking ninja warrior, accepted him as the honest, quirky, “Native Warrior” that he was.

BLURB

Late one night, outside Stockholm, Mikael Kohler-Frost is found wandering. Thirteen years earlier, he went missing along with his younger sister. They were long thought to have been victims of Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, Jurek Walter, now serving a life sentence in a maximum security psychiatric hospital. Now Mikael tells the police that his sister is still alive and being held by someone he knows only as the Sandman.

Years ago, Detective Inspector Joona Linna made an excruciating personal sacrifice to ensure Jurek’s capture. He is keenly aware of what this killer is capable of, and now he is certain that Jurek has an accomplice. He knows that any chance of rescuing Mikael’s sister depends on getting Jurek to talk, and that the only agent capable of this is Inspector Saga Bauer, a twenty-seven-year-old prodigy. She will have to go under deep cover in the psychiatric ward where Jurek is imprisoned, and she will have to find a way to get to the psychopath before it’s too late–and before he gets inside her head.

#BookReview: A Dangerous Woman – The Life of Florence Gould by Susan Ronald @susanron @StMartinsPress

Ronald_A Dangerous WomanFlorence understood instinctively that beauty, as well as money, was power; and she had both in abundance.

Florence Gould was an intelligent, conniving, self-centered, savvy business woman, but most of all she was a survivor.  She survived the San Francisco earthquake and fire as a child, a major flood in France, World War I and World War II.  Her survival skills came into play again with her questionable connections with top officials of The Third Reich which was a contention with FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, after the war.  Hoover tried everything to get her convicted for aiding and abetting the enemy to no avail.  She was definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Her open marriage to a very wealthy and shrewd American multimillionaire, Frank Gould, gave her the opportunities she needed to become an independent wealthy woman in her own right by investing in real estate and art, though obtained under dubious conditions.  It’s known that many of her art purchases were bought from collections taken by the Nazis from French Jews.  Though rumors said she was an anti-Semite, Ronald supposes that Florence didn’t care one way or another.  She preferred to have fun rather than worry about “political rumblings”, and being the self-serving woman she was, she chose to help both sides when it suited her.

Cleo is an up-and-coming investigative journalist who got her former employer, The Tucson Sun, a nomination for the Pulitzer.  So why is she now accepting a job with The Inside Word, a tabloid?  It’s complicated.  In fact, her life has been nothing but.  Her mother is a former Vegas showgirl who is now a choreographer in Vegas which Cleo likes to keep on the down low.  Even her ex-boyfriend Martin Howard Prescott the third didn’t know about that side of her life, but now she has sold her soul to the devil and her sign on bonus will be in the bank soon to take care of some debts.  Everything is going as planned…or is it?  She didn’t count on having to work with sexy Alec Ramirez with those bedroom eyes and smoldering good looks.

“She’d thought that Ramirez fellow had been within a breath of backing her up against the break area’s counter and taking her right there. And for a second, it hadn’t seemed like a bad idea.”

33666001But here we are, day in, day out with our patients, their families; we see it all.  Nurses are like hospital furniture. Everyone else constantly moves, the Ists get promoted, patients go home or die but we stay, steadfast, waiting to be sat on, leant on, perhaps kicked about a bit.

Alice is a compassionate nurse and unit manager in Ward 9B, a small High Dependency Unit at St. Catherine’s Hospital.  Patients there hover between life and death.

One of her patients, Frank Ashcroft, has been on her ward for two months which is unusual for someone in his state.  He had a brain stem stroke leading to a coma and Dr. Sharma wants to move him to a morgue waiting room to let him die, but Alice is optimistic that Frank can hear her during their long one-sided talks.  Frank is a good listener who doesn’t judge while she chats about her husband, David, and her many devastating miscarriages.  All she wants to be is a good wife and mother, and when a young, pregnant female coma patient, Cassie, is admitted to her ward, she has hope that if a baby can survive in a coma patient, then maybe one could survive in her.  But, someone wants to harm Cassie, and Alice will protect her and the baby at all costs.

36377669Grandpa used to be the one to make demands of me. Now he’s almost completely gone. His brain is, anyway. His body’s as strong as the day he stormed the beach at Normandy. Maybe stronger.

Gabe LoScuda is no ordinary 18-year-old.  After his parents die in a car accident, he’s the caretaker of his eighty-year-old grandfather who has Alzheimer’s, and he’s also the “babysitter” of his estranged Uncle Nick, or as his dad put it, “that drunken, good-for-nothing loser kid brother of mine”.  Don’t fret.

Book One of Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series

MY REVIEW

She’d been fourteen when two men in combat fatigues and balaclavas burst into the kitchen where she and her father were enjoying breakfast.  She could have darted for it, threatened them, helped him. But she hesitated. The moment slipped past. They threw a black hood over his head, cuffed him, and dragged him away to be interrogated, tortured, executed and buried in the woods. A single thought haunted her ever since. Had he known they would come?

“Please don’t recognize me, she silently prayed. Even now, nearly thirty years later, her gut clenched when she met new people, especially law enforcement. It was stupid. The odds of someone recognizing her now were slim but every time the panic was real.”

FBI Special Agent Jessica “Jess” Bishop has a secret which has held her hostage for years. When investigating another body found dismembered with the head severed clean from the torso, the similarities with this case and her past could not be denied. The nightmares have been coming back more frequently. Only a few people she trusts know about her past. Her ex-partner FBI Special Agent Jamison Briggs who she hasn’t seen in a long time, her bosses and the department psychologist and good friend. She needs to solve the case soon or she will have to risk telling them about the similarities and she didn’t want to relive the pain and humiliation again.
