Jane Blythe has a little something for fans of her Count to Ten series-BURNING SECRETS has ALL of the intensity this author has to give as one family pays the ultimate price after years of lies, secrets and resentments that have built to deadly proportions.

Investigating the Oliver family deaths, Paige Hood finds the similarities between her family and theirs to be a magnet that will lead her to believe that just maybe, however slim the chances, their fate could be hers. What she finds will lead

I love thrillers and Burning Secrets is one fabulous read from this collection. I am reviewing the book based on reading this one story.

She’s a risk taker and likes living on the edge, pushing the envelope. Oh yeah, she has my attention. Makes me think of a Criminal Minds episode and I can only imagine how terrified she must be. The suspense, tension and anticipation of finding out what happens to her, makes me want to race through the pages, yet slow down and savor the story.

Paige, she cracks m

Never Again by Angela Sanders:
Terrifyingly terrific thriller. Charlotte is a compelling character. Unpredictable twists and turns.

Sharpe Note by Lisa B. Thomas:
Well written murder mystery. Plenty of clues and red herrings. I enjoyed it and hope that you do as well.

Death & Damages is an extraordinary collection filled with contributions from some of the best in the business. I’ve only read one story so far but based on it alone I know this collection is worth getting. The story I read is Drawing Thin by Patricia Loofbourrow. This is a companion novel to her Red Dog Conspiracy series set in Bridges, the setting of that series as well. Constable Paix Hanger is a good cop in a city ruled by its crime lords. He has s kidnapping to solve and much more - and ...more

Burning Secrets is a novella in the Count to Ten series as well as part of a multi-author boxed set called Death and Damages. In this story detective Paige Hood and her partner grapple with a twisted trail of secrets that lead them on a chase. Also, the victims of the crime hit close to home for Paige as their life mirrors her own in certain aspects and it causes her to contemplate her recent life changes.

I love Paige’s character and was thrilled for her and her hubby as they were able to finall

Really good stories

Death and Damages Boxed Set by Various: I’ve read two stories so far - from authors I’ve read before since I knew I liked their writing. I will keep reading but here is my review for the two stories I have read so far.

***** Drawing Thin by Patricia Loofbourrow: Different - a compelling story
A boy is missing in the poorest, crime riddled quadrant. An honest constable - a rarity within a policing body where everyone takes the easy route - won’t quit. More boys missing, some turn

This is a terrific collection of thrillers and cool stories. I have only read one so far, but I am looking forward to the rest.

Drawing Thin is an intriguing dystopian mystery. The story is involving if a bit depressing. This book is a companion to author's expertly crafted Red Dog series, but if you are looking for answers, you'll find more questions here.

Wonderful boxset. I enjoyed reading each story and the storylines. I thought each story was well written and a page tuner.

Drawing Thin by Patricia Loofbourrow is the beginning story of this set and is the best story in the book. This story takes place during the events of the Red Dog Conspiracy series by the same author.

The story reads as a wonderful steampunk rendition of film noir detective adventures. Smoky gritty characters with faults and issues in their lives, trying to survive. The police work in the story is historically accurate for the setting even though it is a work of fiction set in a science fiction w

Review for 'Drawing Thin' by Patricia Loofborrouw - a Companion to the Red Dog Conspiracy series

A novella set in Bridges which looks at the investigation into the disappearance of David Bryce from the view of Constable Paix Hanger, who makes an appearance in 'Jacq of Spades'. The book explores the life of Bridges outside the Spadros Family establishment which forms the backdrop to the first three novels in the series. As such it supplements the events in the first book and since it's some time s

Death & Damages: A Mystery and Thriller Collection
I was able to read a review copy: Double Blind by Dan Alatore from this collection.
Have read the authors other works and loved them.
This one, although a bit out of my regular genre is a mystery but sample chapters sounded interesting and worth a read.
Starts with a trucker being killed and the whole scene is detailed with everything the killer is doing.
Others also end up killed. Found it a bit confusing as there are many scenes with different

Note: I have only read Drawing Thin out of this collection.

I’ve reviewed other books in the Red Dog Conspiracy, but this one ties more closely to the prequels than the actual series in its focus on the commoner, in this case, a policeman. The struggle of those without power or influence in a world defined by those values is a favorite of mine, but often puts character agency at risk. Loofbourrow works around this by giving her characters agency within the limits of their position coupled with f

I've only read one story in this collection and it was great.

Judith Lucci’s Beach Traffic is an intricately woven tale with lots of action, suspense, twists, and turns. This author is very talented in creating suspense and tension with her written words, and her descriptive writing makes the reader feel they are participating in the action as events unfold. From the first page, the reader is drawn into a complex page-turner that switches back and forth to provide the reader with the points of vi

I read an advance copy of “The Last File” by Sierra London.
MaKenzie, a good, determined detective with Daddy and alcohol issues, and her partner Adrian (who’s a hunk, BTW) are hot on the trail of the Birthday Butcher, who’s rained death on women for years. Mac is especially involved with the search since several women close to her have been murdered. The police department-mandated meetings with a therapist put a growing pressure on her as she has to address her rage at the father who left her an

I have been lucky enough to have a chance to read and review Burning Secrets by Jane Blythe. This book fits in after Book Six in the Count to Ten series.
Burning Secret focusses more on Paige's family, since adopting two little girls. Her thoughts start going rampant when getting a new murder case, that involves a family with had 2 adopted children, fearing that her family could possibly be a target.

I have only read one story so far. Beach Traffic by Judith Lucci. It was terrific as are all her stories. Her writing is descriptive. She pulls you in on the first page and doesn't let go until the end. This story is filled with action, suspense, twists and turns. Liam wakes up on the beach wearing bloody clothes. He doen't know what happened. Women are disappearing. Why? What is happening? Local police, CIA, FBI, the Coast Guard all team up to solve this mystery. It seems there is a history of ...more

This review is based on 1 book:Facing the Past by Alexa Padgett.
OMG! This series is worth 99 cents just for this book. It is the story of an unsolved 30 year old kidnapping and murder of a young boy and the ensuing fallout on the family, friends and police. On her death bed, the mother contacts the police and leaves them her journals hoping they contain the necessary clues to finding the serial killer. This book is a well-written, well-paced story that gave me white knuckle moments with a kick-

The Last File was a quick and enjoyable read,is one of the stories included in this collection by Siera London. I really enjoyed the strength and vulnerability of the main character MaKenzie. She's trying to figure out her life all while keeping strong and solving one of the most high profile murder mystery cases. I love how even though she didn't want to, she faced her problems head on.
Adrian was the perfect partner for her. Always to the rescue but not too over powering of her.

Death, damages and so much more

“He chuckled, low and melodic. The sound of his voice hit Mac’s ear with the smooth warmth of medium roast coffee. A tablespoon of Adrian’s Brooklyn borough accent added a sweetness for which Mac had developed an affinity.” Siera London does have a way with words. The Last File is a great read.

Dismal by Tiana Laveen

Ms. Laveen paints pictures with words allowing the reader to feel the cut on his hand as he wraps the injury with gauze. A very good read.

For my liking, although I do appreciate a large collection of reads, there were too many stories here that did not hold my interest. Probably a great way to introduce new authors, but I just couldn't bring myself to finish each story. There were a couple of enjoyable reads, but the rest were a huge pass. It just seemed too overwhelming to finish. Unfortunately I may have missed a few good reads.

Some stories were definitely better than others but because of the ones that were not so good, I felt I had to lower the rating. One or two had a huge number of spelling errors (such as your/you’re and their/there/they’re) that I struggled my way through, cringing at every mistake. There were a couple with way too much explicit content compared with the others. I bought it when it was on offer at 99p so it’s not as bad as if it had just been a couple of bad stories for £5.

This is for Siera London's THE LAST FILE:

I really loved this story! The heroine's journey. The beauty and minimalism of the romantic thread. The crazy antagonists. Everything about this book drew me in and didn't let me go until the very end! Great job, Ms. London!

Many hours of great reading material

So many stories, and most of them are really good. If you are on a tight budget this is the best way to get many hours of great reading material. My only disappointment was in the editors.
