Coming Soon, Thrillers and Suspense to Chill Your Bones!


I was looking for a creepy, dark thriller/suspense and The Lost Village by Camilla Sten was just what I was in the mood for- a dark horror! Well, I’m never in the mood for anything too gory or scary, this was just the right combination. The residents of a small Scandinavian town have just vanished into thin air. What happened? That’s was filmmaker Alice sets out to find out. Soon after she arrives with the film crew in that town, weird things happen, things that cannot be rationally explained. Someone is watching them…

Take a look:

Documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt has been obsessed with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed “The Lost Village,” since she was a little girl. In 1959, her grandmother’s entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the only two people who were left—a woman stoned to death in the town center and an abandoned newborn—have plagued her. She’s gathered a small crew of friends in the remote village to make a film about what really happened.

But there will be no turning back.

Not long after they’ve set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice:

They are not alone.

They’re looking for the truth…
But what if it finds them first?

If you like the feeling of being scared, nervous, and anxious, then this is the book for you. Coming out on March 23!



This was a quick read for me. I’m always interested in books that center on family tensions, and this one took us down quite a path! I think you will enjoy it if you like characters you can’t rely on, if you want to be guessing at who you can trust and if you want to be surprised. This story is told by the perspectives of Sibley and also Deborah.

Check it out:

From the outside looking in, Sibley Sawyer has a perfect life. As a successful attorney, she’s worked hard to get to the top of her game—but when her personal and professional lives implode, Sibley looks for a way to turn the page.

Unable to shake the tragic circumstances that caused her to flee her rural Midwestern hometown, Sibley wants nothing more than to reunite with her estranged mother, Deborah, and bury their past tensions.

But as she reenters the life she left behind, she realizes her mother isn’t the same person she remembers, and she’s not the same daughter either.

As both women struggle to piece together a tangled web of deceit and lies, and the shocking circumstances that caused Sibley to leave in the first place, it becomes clear there are secrets rooted deeper than either mother or daughter could ever have imagined.

Can you really deceive your past and those around you?

This book will be out on March 9!



I will probably always want to read whatever D.J. Palmer writes. What an author! The Perfect Daughter was a compelling read about a girl with Multiple Personality Disorder also known as Diassaociative Identity Order. This was a very interesting look at DIO which I don’t know much about and cannot even conceive of what it would be like to have a child with it. Or to have it myself.


Penny Francone, age sixteen, is a murderer. Her guilt is beyond doubt: she was found alone in the victim’s apartment, covered in blood, holding the murder weapon. The victim’s identity and her secret relationship to Penny give her the perfect motive, sealing the deal. All the jury needs to decide now is where Penny will serve out her sentence. Will she be found not guilty by reason of insanity, as her lawyer intends to argue? Or will she get a life sentence in a maximum-security prison?
Already reeling from tragedy after the sudden passing of her beloved husband a few years before, now Grace is on her knees, grateful that Massachusetts doesn’t allow the death penalty.

As Penny awaits trial in a state mental hospital, she is treated by Dr. Mitchell McHugh, a psychiatrist battling demons of his own. Grace’s determination to understand the why behind her daughter’s terrible crime fuels Mitch’s resolve to help the Francone family. Together, they set out in search of the truth about Penny, but discover instead a shocking hidden history of secrets, lies, and betrayals that threatens to consume them all.

The perfect daughter. Is she fooling them all?

WOW, you do not want to miss this book. When you get it, clear your schedule because you will want to spend the day reading! If you gravitate towards murder, personality disorders, thrillers, and mental hospitals, this is the book for you!

Coming out on April 20.



Call Me Elizabeth Lark by Melissa Colasanti promises to be a complete thrill ride from the beginning pages. The author does a terrific job of ratcheting up the suspense! This book is told by three narrators: a mother who lost her daughter, the sister, and the missing girl herself who is running away from an abusive husband.

Take a look:

Twenty years ago, Myra Barkley’s daughter disappeared from the rocky beach across from the family inn, off the Oregon coast. Ever since, Myra has waited at the front desk for her child to come home. One rainy afternoon, the miracle happens–her missing daughter, now twenty-eight years old with a child of her own, walks in the door. Elizabeth Lark is on the run with her son. She’s just killed her abusive husband and needs a place to hide.

Against her better judgment, she heads to her hometown and stops at the Barkley Inn. When the innkeeper insists that Elizabeth is her long lost daughter, the opportunity for a new life, and more importantly, the safety of her child, is too much for Elizabeth to pass up. But she knows that she isn’t the Barkleys’s daughter, and the more deeply intertwined she becomes with the family, the harder it becomes to confess the truth. Except the Barkley girl didn’t just disappear on her own. As the news spreads across the small town that the Barkley girl has returned, Elizabeth suddenly comes into the limelight in a dangerous way, and the culprit behind the disappearance those twenty years ago is back to finish the job.

This is so much more to the story, but I don’t want to give anything away. I HIGHLY recommend this book, its out on March 9.



You will love this book! If you can’t get enough of thrillers that kept you turning the pages rapidly, The Woman Inside by Anna-Lou Weatherley is a book you need to read ASAP. The writing flows, the plot kept me wondering what would happen next. I didn’t know who I could trust in this book!


Daisey Garrett wakes up in a hospital bed. She remembers her boyfriend has left her for another woman but she doesn’t remember what happened to her. The night she was attacked in her own home.

Daisey shouldn’t be alive but against all odds, she’s survived an ordeal most would never recover from. And her new friend and roommate Iris will help her get back on her feet.

But Daisey’s mind is broken. She’s on edge, drinking too much and as she sits across from her cheating ex, Luke, in the beautiful home they once shared together, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched. Yet tiny fragments of Daisey’s memory are starting to come back to her.  The missing pieces of that fateful summer night are beginning to surface…The lies she told the police.

The lies Luke told her.  Iris will help her find the truth, won’t she?

This book is part of a series centering around Detective Dan Reilly. There are other books in this series but you can read this as a standalone.  Its out now!



I love the cover of Kiss Me, Kill Me by Louise Mullins. Bethan wants her husband dead. He’s old and rich, the writing is on the wall, right? She has a plan in place but things don’t exactly go the way she wanted them to. I liked the premise of this book quite a lot! It was more than I thought it would be and though its book #2 in a series, you don’t need to have read the first book for this one to make sense.

Just know that the story will bring in Emma Locke  and it will jump around a bit.

With that in mind, give this book a whirl if you are a suspense junkie like I am!

Check it out:

I practise my shock-horror face in the mirror for the seventh time. ‘My husband, he’s . . . dead.’

Bethan Phillips has only one thing on her mind: killing her rich and elderly husband for his fortune. But after several thwarted attempts, it is a horrific accident while holidaying together in Snowdonia that takes Humphrey down.

Now she must pretend he’s alive, continuing social gatherings alone under the guise he is undertaking business abroad. Because someone witnessed her leaving Humphrey to die, and should the police investigate his death they’ll discover the series of ‘accidents’ he’s survived in the previous few days… and it won’t take them long to connect the dots.

There are many reasons Bethan would rather the police didn’t look too closely at her. Or the life she lived before becoming Bethan Philips. Unfortunately for her, DI Emma Locke is on the case.

This is out now, go read it!


This is a fast-paced story that fans of suspense and mystery will absolutely love. Girl, 11 by Amy Suiter Clarke which I read in record time.

This murderer was counting down his crimes but abruptly stopped, no one knows why.

When Elle gets a tip about this case, she follows up and quickly learns TCK is dead. But when a child is abducted with details echoing that of the Countdown Killer, she wonders if he ever really died…

A quick and heart pounding read, The Watcher Girl by Minka Kent. It’s a follow up to the novel, The Memory Watcher which I haven’t read but you don’t need to read this book to enjoy The Watcher Girl.

The main character, Grace, goes home to check in on her ex, Sutton, who she believes is in trouble. Grace develops a friendship with his wife. I don’t want to give much more away because there are twists and surprises within the pages of this story!

Check it out:

Eight years ago, Grace McMullen broke Sutton Whitlock’s heart when she walked away. But it was only to save him from the baggage of her own troubled past. Now all she wants is to make sure he’s okay.

Only everything she learns about him online says otherwise. According to his social media accounts, he placed roots in her hometown, married a look-alike, and even named his daughter Grace. He clearly hasn’t moved on. In fact, it’s creepy. So Grace does what any concerned ex-girlfriend would do: she moves home…and watches him.

But when Grace crosses paths with Sutton’s wife, Campbell, an unexpected friendship develops. Campbell has no idea whom she’s inviting into her life. As the women grow closer, it becomes clear to Grace that Sutton is not the sentimental man she once knew. He seems controlling, unstable, and threatening. And what a broken man like Sutton is capable of, Grace can only imagine. It’s up to her to save Campbell and her baby now—but while she’s been watching them, who’s been watching her?
