See what reviewers are saying:

“This was a good one, let’s start by saying that. From the first few pages, I could tell that I would enjoy the writing of this killer thriller. The most important thing for me when I read a book is the quality of the prose and the ability of an author to create a scene so vivid that I want to re-read descriptions because they are so tangible, packed with metaphors, and unique in a way that other author’s have simply never thought of before ….I am pretty good at predicting where books are headed, but Belle Chasse kept me guessing. More importantly, I knew that the author wasn’t predictable, but I was still encouraged to lay my own predictions on the prose, hoping to be right, but equally pleased when Lovejoy pulled the rug out and unveiled something that changed the game completely.

All in all, this book must have taken an extreme level of outlining and thought… Continue reading

“What a great start to a new crime/thriller series! Exciting, thrill-a-minute story; engaging characters; snappy dialogue – all come together in “Girl Jacked” by author Greyson …  I am already looking forward to the next book in the Jack Stratton series – “Jack-Knifed.” By Cheryl Stout – Amazon Top 600 and Vine Voice Reviewer

 

“I didn’t realize this was such a popular title when I picked it (I usually try to give reviews to books that need them more). However, once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down. The plot speeds along at a cracking pace, and Mr. Greyson manages to add layer upon layer of backstory to his two main characters—Jack Stratton, and Alice–the eighteen-year-old sister of his foster brother, best friend, and Iraqi comrade in arms.

When a serial killer stalks literary agents, and brutally kills them, the world of publishing panics with fear as the FBI hunts for the cold blooded killer, wondering what could cause a person to become such a monster?

To someone else, the rejection letter might be perceived as a simple piece of correspondence. But when Amy, who suffers from bipolar disorder receives a form rejection letter from Edward, an agent she had an affair with at a recent convention, she takes the rejection as both personal and professional–in short–a declaration of war.

 Amy quickly embarks on a plan to get revenge by destroying Edward’s literary agency, but Amy is soon not the one to be feared the most. Her actions create a copycat, a serial killer, who targets literary agents and viciously murders them.

Living with the knowledge she has created a monster, a serial killer, is one thing, while doing nothing to stop the madness is another. But how could she track down a killer when she has no training in such? Thinking like a mad man might be the only way–but could she go there and survive herself? When the winds of fate, however, rekindle the romance with Edward, thus making him the next target–she really has no choice but to help the FBI before it is too late.

Moon Signs was a quarter-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards.
 
Retirement is a time for knitting, gardening, and an occasional quiet lunch with friends, according to Kathleen Williamson. Her sister Andrea has an altogether different point of view. When the sisters go to the Canaan Valley to search for paintings mentioned in a document found in an old hotel once owned by their grandparents—paintings that might be Monets—Andrea immediately becomes involved in tracking down a murderer. Kathleen would much rather be looking for the paintings, but she goes along with Andrea, since the victim was their hotel-keeper, murdered just down the hall from their room. The question is: Does the murder have something to do with the elusive paintings? There are many clues and many suspects, including hotel staff, valley residents, and the mysterious foreigners who come from the Eastern Seaboard for skiing. There are also many types of danger—icy roads, sub-zero temperatures, and a killer who doesn’t care how many people die in the attempt to make sure the right ones do.

I had read the author’s first book, “The Awful Truth About Dead Men”, and really enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to reading “Sibling Revelry”. I LOVED it.

Winner of the Oregon Book Award 

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That’s how people describe Garrison Gage, and that’s when they’re being charitable.

After his wife’s brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon.

He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife’s death is his fault.

But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation – forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl’s murder.

Finalist Lambda Literary Award 
The Nic and Nora Mystery series-mysteries solved by lesbian amateur detectives in post-World War II Chicago. 

On October 29, 1945, Nic Owen made her debut appearance as a radio detective on the new show Inez Ingalls, Private Eye. Hired only weeks earlier to read ad copy and work as an understudy, the murder of the shows star propels Nic to the lead role and a top spot on the list of suspects. Cecil Park, husband of the murdered woman, wants answers, as does Nora Hahn, Carolyn’s ‘special friend’ for fourteen years.

 

See what readers are saying:
 
She Overheard Murder serves up an enticing menu full of clues, close calls, and murder. Adding to the atmosphere is the deliciously authentic background of early radio and post-World War Chicago. …The characters are as interesting as the plot, which along with Sheldon’s excellent prose make this a winner. By Alice Lynn

Sheldon takes care to show her characters as normal men and women, who grieve when they suffer from loss, who are lonely for human discussion and interaction, who struggle with the same issues in different ways. By so doing, she demolishes the language that surrounds the homosexual lifestyle: that is, that being a homosexual is only about sexuality and not about love, life and family. Her characters, both lesbian and straight, are people who desire interaction, companionship and understanding.… Continue reading
