Read Nomad first. Sanctuary takes place in the form of how many days after Nomad hit the earth. Sanctuary is a scary and exciting book.

Shadow of Punishment by Jacques Oscar Lufuluabo


Shadow of Punishment is a complex, suspenseful murder mystery. The book is in two parts. Before and after murder happens. The author has built an entire cast of very different characters around a substance abuse clinic. These characters are the owners, employees, family, and friends of this clinic. The reader learns about all the different characters, who they are, and how they know each other. Everybody in this story has something to hide. They may or may not realize it. After the murder of a clinic employee, various law enforcement characters join the cast of characters.

Inspector Nardi is in charge of this murder. He enters the apartment of a dead woman—a clinic employee. Nardi is a compelling character bringing his baggage to this complex investigation. Inspector Nardi is the one to see things no one else does. Jealousy is an evil embedded with many characters. Everyone is looking out for themselves. Not the best characteristics in people. When this bunch of people’s lives intersect, many bad things happen. Twists and turns, along with some seemingly obvious situations, are ongoing. I love this story. Jaw-dropping ending!

Help Me Kill My Husband by R D Murray


Help Me Kill My Husband is a fast-paced original story. I did not want to put this book down. Dale is the husband referred to in the title. This guy is quite a character. Dani is Dale’s wife. The reader witnesses the story through Dani.

Dani’s fault is she fell in love with Dale. It turns out a lot of women fall in love with Dale. Dale takes full advantage of this. He is manipulative to an insane degree. Dani slowly discovers everything. Help Me Kill My Husband is a quick, easy read. I enjoyed this book and will be reading other books by this author.

Save Her Lacey James Mystery Book 2 by Chris Patchell


The main character Lacey James is a police officer for Sweet Home, Oregon. She and her husband are at a New Year’s Eve party.

Audrey is visiting her hometown of Sweet Home, Oregon, and heading to meet friends at the same New Years’ Eve party. That was the plan at least.

New Years Eve in a snowstorm on a mountain in Oregon is the setting. This is a fast paced suspenseful story. Audrey never makes it to the party. Where is Audrey? A lot of action and plot twist brings these three characters together

Save Her is a great book. I did not want to put this book down. A four hour quick and easy read.

I would like to thank the author for giving me an advanced copy of Save Her. It’s the first Chris Patchel book I’ve ever read. I love this book and will be reading many more of her books. I’ll be reading Find Her Book 1 of the Lacey James mysteries next. This is my honest review of Save Her.

Her Final Mistake Book 1 in the Neg Dawson Series by Amy Waeschle


Her Final Mistake is a fast-paced, suspenseful story. The main character, Meg, tells the story in two parts. As a girl and then as an adult. Before and after a traumatic tragedy. Her Final Mistake is an exciting approach. The character before and after. Meg is a well-defined character because of what she’s been through.

Meg’s friend was murdered. The circumstances around the murder aren’t clear to Meg. Something is wrong. She’s not safe. Many twists and turns which I never saw coming make this a page-turner. The second book will be out soon. I look forward to continuing with Meg’s story.
