Still loving J D Nixon’s books! I’ve been waiting for this release for-freaking-ever! I am completely addicted to this series, as I am the Heller series. These books are full of action, they are funny, quirky, and completely unrealistic. They are also quite violent, painful and sad at times. And this one was no exception.

It is amazing how some books can draw us in until our world goes away. Every book that JD Nixon writes does that for me and Blood Tears was probably the best of all.

Tessie has felt trapped ever since she was forced to move back home to care for her ailing father. The malevolence of Little Town’s Bycraft family hangs over the whole town, but their ongoing battle against Tessie and her family her whole life has filled her existence with physical and emotional pain. For a while she felt she had so

There is so much I have to say about this book, it is an awesome story. I have been a fan of JD Nixon for a long time, waiting....I would like to say patiently, but that would not be true! For each new book in the Little Town Series. This is book 4, and it does not disappoint!  Tessie is an amazing character, She's been through so much, and while she may not see it,  she comes through swinging. Several things happen in this book that you've been waiting for, I can't say much more than that or it ...more

This book, the fourth in the little town series was an amazing emotional read. Tess and Finn are reunited and must work at re-establishing their relationship as partners in policing Little Town against the crimes of the notorious Baycraft family.
Once again the Baycrafts are out to inflict as much pain as possible to Tessie while Finn fights to help keep her safe.
Touching, emotional and a great story.
Fantastic job JD Nixon! Absolutely love these characters and can not wait for the next book!

Just finished book 4 and it is definitely a "WoW". This book was so captivating, there were so many twists. It was inevitable that Tessie & Jakey would never have that happily ever after. I was really hoping Finn & Tess would have moved their relationship to the next leave or at least explored what could have been. This entire series is awesome and book 4 kept me reading every free second I had. There was always something going on. I hope book 5 allows Finn & Tessie to date & sto ...more

First of all I have to say that I have loved the author's writing, but there is no sign of the author actually finishing this series. I don't want someone else to be like me; buying four books to find out that there is no end in sight.

I have seen all of the excuses, but before you fry me on the bonfire of popular opinion let me say this: I have been through two serious illnesses. While undergoing treatment I was surrounded by people that were there on their lunch hours and were holding down full

I don't think this series can be anything but 5 stars for me. I love Tess and Finn and anxiously anticipate each book so I can read more about them. This book was no different. I'll say that this one was harder for me to get back into since it had been longer between books. I should have reread the books before this one but even then it is still a five star book. I loved (and hated) the ending and can not wait to see how the next book develops.

I'm on a book hangover with this book. I loved it, and I can't wait till the next one comes out. It will be sad though, since that is the last book in the series.

Finally! I'm so glad that this book happened and Tess finally woke the frig up! A lot of sad developments happened in this one but I'm glad that shit went down. Can't wait to see what the next book holds.

This book follows Tess fuller and her adventures as a senior constable in little town. Her constant battle with the bycraft family pushes her to her limits. She learns a lot of things about herself in this book and I think she also realizes some things she may not have seen previously.

Tracy *To the point Reviews*

I was in love with the Heller series. This is very different, and yet the heroines from each series show similar character traits. Scratch that, they are nearly the same!

There several reoccurring things that happen in this book/series that infuriated me. To the point where it's just ridiculous!
1. Bycrafts always getting away with murder. Like SERIOUSLY?
2. Red Bycraft always escaping.
3. Heroine always does the wrong thing. Even the reasoning for her actions are at time stupid and infantile!

There are a few authors, actually two (JD Nixon being one of them) that I will drop whatever I'm reading to pick up their latest book. In fact I did not only drop what I was reading this time but also put my life on hold. My husband and I are selling our house, we have only 3 wks to pack up 10 years in boxes. However when Blood Tears came out I seemed to forget my demanding job, tending to my 84 year old mother in law (I really should start answering her calls now, lol), and the fact that time i ...more
I've been putting off reading this. The cliffhanger at the end of book 3 Blood Feud gutted me. I was upset for days thinking of it. So knowing there's still one more book I've been dreading another Nixon cliffy. But I finally took the plunge and I'm so glad I did. This book was excellent. I just love Tessie. She's an amazing heroine.

In this book Finn returns from his suspension but Tessie, feeling abandoned, is in no mood for a warm welcome. For months Tessie has been under the constant supervis
The Cats Mother
Fourth in the Little Town series about young Australian policewoman Tess Fuller and her perpetual battle with the mostly evil, completely feral Bycraft family. It begins with Tess on probation and Sargent Finn away following the death of Denny Bycraft, for which the family blame Tess. It's a couple of years since the last book came out so I don't remember the details, and there isn't much recap. A runaway teenager is run over and his pregnant girlfriend hiding from a predatory modern day Fagin. ...more

SPOILER ALERT! Blood Tears Gets FIVE stars! I wasn't feeling well Friday afternoon, so I put on my comfy clothes, snuggled up in bed and started reading. 14 hours later, I finished around 4:00 AM Saturday morning. I LOVED Blood Tears so much, I started rereading again on Sunday to relive each moment and to make sure I didn't miss anything. I finished for the second time on my lunch break today and have to say that, even though sad, I think Blood Tears is officially my favorite in the Little Town ...more

What can I say about the "Little Town" series of books in general? You are alway waiting for the next novel by this talented author. If you haven't discovered J. D. Nixon yet and truly enjoy action novels with great characterizations, you should give it a try.

Blood Tears brings back the characters you have grown to love (or hate) in the previous Little Town books. Tessie, the opinionated, impulsive, not always right, Senior Constable Police Officer of Little Town. Finn, her supervisor, who has j

Totally Amazing!!!!!!

I can't even put into words how amazing this series is! J.D. Nixon is not afraid to take her characters to places where other authors wouldn't. Throughout this series, Tess has taken hit after hit, both physical and emotional, but she has always had support. In this story, Tess finds herself alone many times whether by her own isolation or from the actions of her enemies. This time the hits are more emotional, and they just keep on coming. Tess Is maturing and changing. Finn

Reading the fourth book in this outstanding series is like quenching my thirst after a long drought. The author did not disappoint and it was definitely worth the wait. I love Tess and partnered with Sarge, these two characters are intriguing and I revel in their adorable banter. Tess started off bitter and resentful in this book but she gradually returned to her usual self with Sarge’s return. There were two parallel storylines – one was the tension brewing in Bycraft family due to Denny’s fune ...more

Can't wait for the final book. With out giving away anything I'll say I'm happy if the ending. I really like the characters. I enjoy how Tess is a strong, capable woman with a temper that rivals mine and listens to orders as well as I do lol. Finn is a great character too, both have so much to give once you get past their barrier.
Jd Nixon always writes great main characters as well as supporting ones.
