It's great so far! And, I can't wait for the next book in Laura Griffin's Tracer Series, Touch of Red. I love that series! I also plan to read one of Karin Slaughters books this summer. I haven't read any of her books yet and apparently they're pretty darn good.(less)

Okay, not all the time. Honestly, I step away from the keyboard and take a lap around the house, take a few deep breaths, and just take a minute. And, if I still have the dreaded block when I sit back down, I force myself to just begin typing . . . even if it's an awful, unemotional sentence that barely fits (I know I can go back and change it). And, more often then not, my creative juices start flowing again. And then I reward myself with another drink. Just joking.(less)

1 chapters   —   updated Jun 29, 2017 05:57AM
Description: "The Woods is a sexy, small town murder mystery that’s guaranteed to resonate with fans of Nora Roberts and Karin Slaughter." A year after her sister’s death, Archeologist and part-time neurotic, Dr. Katie Somers returns to the sleepy, southern town of Berry Springs to sell her childhood home. She’d planned to be in and out in less than a week, but a chance meeting with a handsome stranger turns her perfectly crafted world upside down. Army Ranger Jake Thomas only has one shot at a position with the FBI, even if that means concealing his true identity from those closest to him. As he tries to focus on the mission at hand, Berry Springs is rocked by two gruesome murders and it isn’t long before he and Katie become entangled in the killer’s web, while becoming suspects themselves by the prickly Chief of Police, David McCord. As their attraction begins to sizzle, so does the danger when Katie stumbles onto new details about her sister’s death, leading her down a dangerous path. A path she should’ve never stepped onto… ****Best Thrillers Review**** The Woods, A First-Rate Erotic Mystery by Amanda McKinney http://bestthrillers.com/the-woods-a-first-rate-erotic-mystery-by-amanda-mckinney/
