When does freedom go too far?

GET MY BOOK

Doctor Rowena Halley has finally found a job that pays enough to live on. Too bad it’s a continent away from one of the men in her life, and an ocean away from the other. Plus, the campus she’s teaching at is not the idyllic haven it seems.

There are the usual problems of academia: busywork, embarrassing extracurricular activities, a difficult department chair. And then there’s real danger. A Gamergate activist has been invited to speak at the college, and a campus Men’s Rights group has threatened to protest the event. Are the rumors of violence swirling around the speaker “just talk,” or are they going to become action?

When Rowena gets drawn into organizing the event, she is called on to find out before something tragic happens. Her dive into the campus’s incel culture just threatens to stir the pot, though. Rowena is worried that she’s going to lose her job. With tensions on campus running this high, however, it may be more than her contract that is terminated. The college is concerned about freedom of speech. Rowena is concerned about the freedom to stay alive.

Combining suspense, dark humor, and a touch of romance, Trigger Warning is a sharply satirical examination of modern higher ed reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s investigations into the dark side of contemporary college life, written by someone with years of experience in the trenches of academia.

Content warning: Along with the kind of adult language you should expect from mouthy undergrads and battle-scarred Iraq vets, this book also contains a serious discussion of bullying, incel culture, and gun violence. You’ve been warned.

Kinley’s brother in arms, Sam Noor, must also face the demands of British Intelligence. Both men have left their families at home, ignorant to their dangerous career path.

She’s been sleepwalking a lot lately, and although it just started, she’s by no means a stranger to new things. 

It’s been four months since Mia woke up with no memory—no recollection of any of the 24-years of her life. She doesn’t remember getting married, or even moving to the southern town of Cooper Creek. But what bothers her the most is not knowing why she keeps having the same recurring nightmare about the Chinese tattoo on her ring finger. 

When Mia discovers how to trigger back her memories, she’s taken aback by the fact that they don’t match the life she’s been living? 

But that’s not the worst part… 

She soon learns that any further triggers could cause permanent damage to her brain. 

On the edge of her doubts, will she risk her mental stability to find out the truth about her past? 

You’ll love this thrilling romantic suspense because its fast-pace will keep the pages turning and you won’t be able to put it down.

And is Dunne trying to save the company, or take it over for himself?

Smastrus was meant to be a perfect human-being, with all the eight attributes (rasas) of a remarkable personality. But at the age of fourteen, his existence is so burdened with poverty and persecution that the quality of his life is little better than an animal’s.

He knows nothing about his absent father. His broken-spirited mother is half mad. And then there is Smast’s cousin, Pintu — a privileged boy with a flair for devising novel ways of inflicting pain and humiliation on the weak and the defenceless.

Smast’s first-ever act of defiance shatters two things simultaneously: a couple of Pintu’s front teeth and Smast’s entire world. He falls upon the mercy of a merciless woman — Sona, Pintu’s enigmatic, evil mother. 

What could be easier than fully crushing someone who has already been beaten to a pulp? But a mysterious power is awakening in Smast, and the battle between Sona and Smast will not be so unequal after all. 

Long-buried secrets will crawl out of their watery graves, illusions will overpower and distort reality, and an unforgettable hero will embark on an incredible quest.

About the Little Lantern Trilogy: Just as sprawling trees come from tiny seeds, Smast’s pleasure trip (after the events of Book I) will birth an epic journey spanning several years and hundreds of miles. 

From being almost-lynched for a soul-scarring horror to forging an unlikely bond with a downcast princess, from being abducted by a devilish dwarf to being accused of a monstrous policeman’s murder, Smast will have enough mind-bending adventures to last many lifetimes, but everything is just a prelude to the ancient magic awaiting him in a faraway, breathtaking Himalayan valley…

Snowfall – A Viking Romance

“Amid the chill of a winter’s night, under the falling snow and the shifting trees, a babe was born, crying softly into her mother’s breast. She was healthy and pink-cheeked, with a thin dusting of white-blonde hair atop her little head. As her pale-faced mother drew her last breaths, she ran a shaking hand through that soft, downy hair and called the child “Drifa”.

Spirited away at birth and raised in the long-abandoned Fortress Vysala, Lady Drifa never imagined life could be so complicated. When viking raiders raze Vysala to the ground and Drifa is taken prisoner by the handsome warrior chief, Halvar, she realizes that she might not be who she thinks she is and that some secrets are perhaps better left unsaid.”

“The author is a great talent.” — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer 

When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor. 

When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?  

Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.

Detective Shelby Griffin is sworn to serve and protect the city of Los Angeles. That doesn’t mean that she has to like it.

Actually, Shelby hates LA, and she can’t wait to get out of here and return to her hometown in Rhode Island. For now, though, she needs this job, and she works the streets every day with her partner Trevor Morris. There’s no shortage of cases, either. Shelby’s neighborhood is on the very brink of an all-out gang war, and it’ll take just one spark to light the tinder-dry atmosphere. That spark comes in the form of a dead gangster who might just prove to be the catalyst for a gang war that could kill hundreds and cause devastating collateral damage. Or does it?

When Shelby discovers that the murder is not what it seems, she’s determined to find the real killer, but a kidnapping turns the whole case on its head. The murder Shelby is investigating has led to a terrible choice. Either way, people die. And if she doesn’t find the killer and stop him, those people could include Morris. The vigilante roaming the streets makes life even more complicated for LA’s most reluctant detective as she fights back in this fast-paced first installment of a five-book series.

A summer heatwave.

A cruel game.

An ice-cold heart.

You are told to forget everything you think you know about serial killers. Forget the films you’ve watched, the TV documentaries you’ve pored over, every killer thriller you’ve ever read. Wipe your mind. Begin again.

You are told to look around you. At that weird neighbor you had a bad feeling about, or the guy who passes your sitting-room window at the same time every day and always slips a sideways glance through the window, or maybe the one who cuts you up at the junction and glares like it’s your fault.

You probably wouldn’t call any one of those a killer just based on that stuff. Killer’s a harsh word and a cruel accusation and thankfully not many bear the accolade. But you are told you’d better be ready to believe that one of them might. Because it’ll never be who you think it is.

Detective Cass Fletcher knows all this. She knows never to stereotype the criminal mind, knows how foolish that would be. So why is it then that despite her experience and training, she feels so utterly unprepared to sit across the table from the first serial killer she’s ever looked directly in the eye?

A Death In The Afternoon – The Southermost Mystery Series

At twenty-four years old, I was dying a slow and painful death.

My tombstone would read:

Here lies Mallory Hemingway. Gone Too Soon. Died of Boredom.

I scrolled past the government jobs, the work from home jobs, and the delivery jobs hoping to find that gem that stood out, when suddenly I sat straight up, the back of my chair bouncing back and forth like an overzealous jack in the box.

Wanted: Night-time Caretaker for Hemingway Home in Key West, FL.

Responsibilities: Live on-site for security purposes, locking gates, ensuring house is properly secured, tending to the many cats that live on the property, and being a point of contact for police or emergency personnel if needed.

Salary: $25,000 a year. Room and board included.

Ok, so the salary wasn’t much, but it was just me. And if I wasn’t paying for room and board, then how much money did I really need?

I googled Key West taking in the size of the island, the culture that oozed personality, and the tight, narrow streets that cut through the main areas.  I wouldn’t need a car to navigate such a tiny place, so I could sell mine and use the money to help me move. Real estate there was astronomical, so not having to pay for a place to stay would give me the room in my budget that I needed in order to write during the day.

It didn’t seem like they’d need me to do much, so I was basically being paid to sleep. I could get up early and write every morning, just like Hemingway did. Surely, my last name and distant relative status would be a mark in my favor.

My hand hovered over the receiver of the Harmony Times phone, when I stopped cold. What was I doing? I couldn’t break up with Andrew, leave my parents, and move to the southernmost point of the United States, could I?

Find out if she will in the newest cozy mystery sensation, A Death In The Afternoon.

When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor. 

When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?  

Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.

This is a unique take on what happens when a human or animal dies, especially with one character in particular who finds out he is special in ways he could never imagine. It is a horror story, with a little comedy and mystery, and a lot of suspense to it. 
Review

This is a book very enjoyable, with some thoughts about life and death that will make the lector think about their own beliefs. Excellent book with a new kind of plot and well written dialogues that make the action very fluid. I highly recommend this book!

From the very start, this book pulled me in and kept my attention. It really makes you think and wonder what happens when we die. I appreciated the full descriptions of Noah, the professors, demons and other characters in this story. I could visualize what was happening while reading.
