It's been awhile since I've read a good thriller, so when I discovered I won this book through First Reads on Goodreads, I was super excited!!
Elizabeth Haynes tells a great story, that's disturbing at the same time. The book itself is slow moving, but there's enough to keep you interested, and eventually it hooks you.
I love that the book alternates between the main characters Annabel and Colin. It also tells the stories of the victims, and it turns out there are many of them. Annabel is a police analyst and Colin is a loner who is creepy as all get out. People are dying left and right from what looks like natural causes, but there is much more than meets the eye. Annabel and Colin eventually meet, the story takes more twists and turns, and eventually everything falls into place.
The ending is edge of your seat, and the book is very good overall. If you like a good thriller, then this book is for you!
I really loved this story. It was very well written and I couldn't wait to read the next twists and turns in Charlene and Raven's stories. Charlene abandoned Raven, she then was raised by Charlene's parents. Raven gets to the point in her life where she wants to know more about her mother, and starts digging for answers. At the same time, it seems like Charlene could give a crap less about her daughter, and is only on a selfish mission to stardom in Hollywood.
Truths come out, lies are kept hidden and there is some drama along the way. Raven falls in love, Charlene also falls in love, but both of their relationships are complicated in completely different ways. Through this book we read each of their stories, from their point of view and it keeps the pages turning. This book did not disappoint and I am excited to read the second part in the series. I am so glad the author contacted me, otherwise I may never have found this great story. I recommend this book for anyone who loves a great story.(less)
I just love when you finish the second book in a series, and it's just as good as the first. That's the case with Miss Scandalous. Raven and Charlene are back again, with more drama and heartache. This book sucks you in from the beginning, and once again I couldn't put it down. I love how Nicole's writing and characters are so real. You feel a wide range of emotions when reading about their life, and wonder if things will ever be "normal" for them, after all they've gone through. I highly recommend this book and the first in the series, Miss Nobody. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!
I was super excited when I found out I won this book through First Reads on Goodreads. I am a huge fan of dystopian fiction, so this was right up my alley. The book was just average in my opinion, and read more like a mystery, than dystopian books I've read previously. That was my misunderstanding though. The story moved fairly slow and was somewhat predictable. It's not a waste of time, but I've read much more interesting stories. It was my first Finnish crime book, so I definitely found that interesting as I love to read different types of books.
Overall I rate this book 2.5 out of 5 stars.(less)
I was super excited to find out I won this book through First Reads. I have some Carl Weber books on my bookshelf, but haven't had the chance to read any yet.
This book was very good! The drama and the characters had me turning the pages, and staying up until 1am trying to finish. Daryl is a main character everyone would love, especially the ladies. This story had a good variety of characters. The ending was somewhat predictable, but still had a few surprises and I enjoyed it alot. I will definitely be reading more books Carl Weber very soon.
The only complaint I have with this book is the misspelling of Daryl's name on the dust jacket. Throughout the whole book his name is spelled "Daryl" and the dust jacket and Goodreads description is spelled "Darryl". In my opinion, this is a mistake that should've been corrected before books were sent out for printing. He is the main character. Kind of important.
I loved Wisdom's character from No More Time Outs, so I was excited to find out there is now a sequel! With death hanging over Wisdom's head, he decides before he dies, he needs to set his family on the right path. Both of his brothers are still a mess, both lost to the streets. His sister and preacher father haven't changed either, and are still out cheating on their spouses. Wisdom knows he needs to pull the family together for his mother's sake. If he's giving his life for his sick mother's replacement kidney, he needs them to make some sacrifices as well. Wisdom comes into some crazy drama and obstacles during his week long journey to bring his crazy family together. Some of these people in this book have completely fallen off their rocker and will stop at nothing to get what they want. I also love this book is set in Detroit! One of my favorite cities!
This book is non stop action, just like Slater's other books. I love how he switches between main characters, alternating chapters, so you see it through everyone's eyes. I didn't lose interest through the entire book, and I was anticipating what the next round of craziness would be. I really liked the ending and how everything turned out. Great read!

This book is the first of two books in a series. I actually read the second one, The Other Side of Goodness first, not knowing there was a prequel.
Gabrielle Mercedes has had a rough life and it seems that all odds are against her. After almost losing her life from an attack late at night, after work as an exotic dancer, she decides to check out a local church. After attending and making a few friends, she decides to join and give her life to God.
There are issues with the church congregation learning of her past and not liking it, as well as people embracing her with open arms. Gabrielle goes through alot of struggles, but keeps her head up and stays away from the devils grasp.
This book is great overall and keeps you interested from start to finish. I'm not much of a Christian fiction reader, but this book definitely has an awesome story to tell.

This book is a very interesting and easy read. Asabe is a great woman, and no matter what her husband does, she is loyal, and stands by his side. He decided to take on a second wife and eventually a third wife to become pregnant with a son because Asabe is not able to conceive. Not everything works as planned and alot of heartache and struggle follow with the new wives and the children they have.
I really liked this book alot overall, but the editing was definitely lacking. It did not take away from the story by any means, but just could've been better. I would check out other books by this author.

I'm not typically a Christian Fiction reader, but the storyline sounded great, so I decided to enter and won! This book was such a fast read for me. I was so interested from the very beginning, I could not put it down!! Gabrielle was such an inspirational character. She had been through so much in her lifetime. When the daughter she gave up for adoption 8 years ago ends up needing a bone marrow transplant, she tries to do whatever possible to get the biological father to get tested. Lawrence, the father, is a jerk politician who is up for re-election. If this comes out, it could hurt his campaign and he doesn't want his wife and kids to find out either.
This book tells a wonderful story and shows how people's faith in God can bring them through some tough times no matter the outcome. The ending of this book is abrupt, so I assume there will be another in the series. I highly recommend this book and author and I cannot wait to check out some of her other books. After I read this, I discovered there is a book before this one with another part of Gabrielle's story that you'd want to read first. That book is called Goodness and Mercy. Check them out!
