Thirty pages into this book I stopped and rubbed my hands together.

She didn't did she?

I quickly skimmed through and found it -- Paul, the head of his house - check. The knife - check. The voice - check. The time travel - check. The Lady - check. Reading the lines - check. The evil Baron - check. The importance of water - check. The desert - check.

Oh My God.

Then I quickly went to her website and found that, yes indeed, there were three more completed or in various states of completion.

Oh My God,
It's a really well written book, great story and story lines. Amazing characters! I totally recommend this book.
While I might be inclined to classify Deadly Expectations as science fiction, I'd prefer a less aggressive approach and call it a true Paranormal. Sure, Anna has the gift of time-travel, but she doesn't need a special machine to do it. Along with that, many characters in the story are reincarnations from previous lives. Who they are, or why or how they can do it and remember their past lives, is something we don't know. However, I have hopes that the sequels might give us more insight about them ...more
Is it fair to begin a review with "I tried really hard to finish this book."?

A lot of writers create suspense by keeping the reader in the dark about what's going on. It's not so much telling a story, but dangling it just out of reach. To do this successfully, one needs characters that are interesting and likeable. They fill in the holes until the plot is finally, mercifully revealed.

Unfortunately, Anna and Paul are not interesting or likeable. Neither of them has any appealing qualities that re
I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway. I feel really bad for not having finished it, but I value my time very highly, and I just could not get into the book.

It was very difficult for me to follow what was going on in the story. There were several times where I would read a paragraph or two and literally say "what the hell?" because I just didn't know what was going on. I didn't find anything likable about the characters either. They just didn't seem real to me. The way they talked and t
I downloaded a free copy of her small story Stone and thought it was deliciously horrific and so I downloaded her Yellow Dress also for free and I loved it.

So I bought Deadly Expectations about a week ago and I just finished it. I thought Anna was similar to Agatha Christie's Miss Jane Marple in that she explores her world through dialogue and through her we come to know her world.

It's really hard to put your finger exactly what type of book this is because it has a bit of science fiction in it
Could hardly put this book down!! This was a fantastic read. So unlike anything I've read before. Truly unpredictable. Looking forward to more from this author.

I was expecting a little bit more in sport bikes and it had not as much motorcycle action as I wanted.

But it was at times pretty scary and it is very addictive because it's almost all dialogue so you really read through it quickly but it's a huge book.

The ending was believable I don't want to spoil it. It seemed fairly realistic for something that's an obvious fantasy.

It's a pretty good escape in my opinion.

The more I read, the more I liked it. Sometimes it was a bit confusing but everything is eventually explained. I'm looking forward to reading Deadly Deceptions, The Chronicles of Anna Book 2.

I won this book through a GoodReads First Read giveaway. It makes a fine addition to my growing library.
If you enjoyed "The Time Traveler's Wife" you'll LOVE this book! It's a fast paced, time traveling whirl wind full of intrigue. It takes you on an intense, page turning ride and you'll be thinking about it long after you put the book down.

a wonderfully ambitious first novel! Rich characters and truly unexpected twists and turns kept me engaged. A real page-turner once it picks up steam by mid-way through!!
