Start your review of Ten
Jane Blythe held absolutely NOTHING back for this incredible finale to her Count to Ten series! TEN is that glorious ending I have been both clamoring for and dreading. Let me tell you, this ending held things I NEVER saw coming, brought gasps of disbelief and horror, broke my heart a few times and left me with some smiles, too.

A good author can create a good ending, a great author creates all of the tension, the intrigue and is still able to serve up an astounding finish that sends her characte

I turn my Kindle on, search for Ten by Jane Blythe, then click the cover with trepidation. I have been following Jane Blythe’s Count To Ten journey since 2016 and I am eager, yet hesitant to begin, wanting to know the end, yet wondering if it will meet all my expectations. Fair or not, I have set the bar high for Jane Blythe…and I am so happy to say that even though I hate to see the journey come to and end, I am very sad, yet satisfied with the end. She not only met my expectations, she exceede ...more

Wow. Ten books have passed, but it's hard to get it into my head that it's over. I feel like I say the same thing in every review, but this book was full of twists and turns, and I enjoyed the ride from beginning to end.

Ten starts with a kidnapping. In the middle of the night, Tessa hears someone break into her house. She manages to make one last call to her most trusted friend, Skylar Wyatt, before she is taken, but Skylar still has no idea where Tessa was taken or who took he

A fabulous ending to a great series! This story was so intense and literally jaw dropping because I never saw it coming! Highly recommend!
Ten is the grand finale to the incredible Count to Ten series and what an explosive finish it was! Right from the start the suspense gripped me with an abduction gone wrong. With time running out and bodies piling up, it is up to the cast of this series to pull together to run down the clues that will unmask the perpetrator of the crimes. When it becomes clear that the abduction somehow had to do with old Detective Parker Bell cases, characters from that series also jump in to help solve a case ...more

I sat down over the last weekend and finally came to the end of the book last night. With a lot of craziness happening with my personal life (good craziness) I was afraid that I would not be able to read Ten in time before the release. I finally stopped everything and relaxed with my kindle. It took me a few days to get through this book. I love Jane's characters dearly and have been following them since One. I had so many tears and fears with Ten. I was afraid to let these beloved characters go ...more

Tessa Bell has been through so much in her young life. She has survived more attempts on her life than most people would get the chance to. She’s wary of the outside world due to everything she has been through and feels that if she just keeps away from the all of the danger, she’ll be fine. That doesn’t mean that she always believes that she will be safe in her own home though and that is evident by the knife under her pillow that she is trying to get to in time to defend herself from the man t ...more

I am honestly in freaking AWE right now. After finishing TEN, the final book in the Count to Ten series by Jane Blythe, that is the only word that describes exactly how I am feeling. Jane created this vivid world that has readers invested in the character and outcomes that I caught my self several times holding my breath to figure out what was going to happen.

We are introduced to some new main characters but the general idea and concept is similar from the previous books. We have a killer that

The last book in the series 😢, oh well it has been a wonderful series that I have thoroughly enjoyed and recommend to everyone who likes romantic suspense.

It was great revisiting with older characters from this author’s Detective Parker Bell series, catching up with what has been happening in their lives like we’re old friends. 😆 Yes, unfortunately Tessa has found herself in more trouble but the mystery is one that has you guessing, like all of this author’s mysteries. I loved how all of the mai

OMG WOW straight of the bat, this book had it all. Once you start reading you cant put it down. Why reading this book I tried to guess who it could be and why, but never in my dreams would of thought who it was. I loved that we went back to every couple from all of the other nine books and how they all come together, near the end of this book I had a few tears coming down my face from what was written but also knowing that it was coming to a end and you Jane did a great job with the final book i ...more

It's the final book in the count to 10 series and the author doesnt disappoint us!

Everyone we meet along the way is all back for the final story it affects each of them in a diffrent way except Tessa. Tessa is still morning the loss of her husband but the one thing that came as a blessing was her son Pj. So when Tessa is kidnapped everyone that she loves is in a rush to find her after learning that the kidnapper will kill her in 10 days.

I loved this series and was pulled in from the very first

It’s sad to have this series end. I have loved every book. Not sure which one is my favorite. I love how every book had me on the edge of my seat wondering what, who, when, where, and why. This book was sad because of Tessa and her lose. She needed to see what was in front of her. I look forward for what else Jane Blythe will write and her other books.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Wow What Did I Just Read

Well I don’t think I’ve ever read a series that ended like this. Oh yay maybe that one. I don’t know if I’d say it was a satisfying ending but it was certainly crazy and suspenseful never saw any of that coming ending. This whole series has been different which I love. Same old gets boring sometimes. I’m sure this author is gonna come up with something just as great for her next series.

Wow! What an explosive way to end such an incredible series!! I'm a little sad that it's over, I have enjoyed each and every one of the books very much. I would like to claim one as a favorite but at this point, that would be impossible. As per usual, Jane Blythe had me on the edge of my seat the whole time, with so many twist and turns, there was never a dull moment! I was kept guessing right up to the end.....and talk about a jaw dropping, totally unexpected ending.

5 stars is not enough for this book. Thur all the twist and turns this Family has been thur its an amazing ending to this series. It's a dark, emotional, tiwsted, and heartbreaking. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time reading page after page to figure out what was going on and who was doing it. When the truth comes out it will blow your mind. Amazing and doesn't leave you hanging. Can't wait to read what else this author has.

What an explosive ending to this amazing series. All the major characters and their children are in this book. Along with some characters from her Detective Parker Bell Series. There is so much tragedy in this book. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. It’s bittersweet to read the last of this series. To take the final journey with these beloved characters. I will miss them

Wow what a ending to a amazing series! This book has so many characters from the past books you really have to pay attention! Of course like always it’s very intense and had me glued to the pages not wanting it to end. Intense, heartbreaking thrill ride that finally came to a close for everyone and damn did it end in a bang! 5/5 stars

Ten - a fitting ending

I have truly enjoyed every word of these ten stories, notwithstanding that they have been scary and showing the dark side of human nature, but they have also shown love and family and how good can triumph over evil when people rise above their fear and speak up. Brilliant series - going to look into some other of Ms Blythe’s stories now.

Skylar Wyatt has kept his promise to his dead partner Parker to look out for his wife Tessa.
Tessa had a bad experience in her younger years so was always prepared but not enough this time when she is kidnapped.
This book fetches all the Detectives from previous books together to try and solve this case
Nice series

Perfect way to end a series! Tessa has seen one tragedy after another and when she gets kidnapped it’s a race against time to find her before she has the same fate as the people around her. So many twists and turns you can’t help but stay hooked.

This book might be my favourite and least favourite of series. What a way to end such a full on series!
So much happens I won't say much more, but the author has knocked it out of the park with this book and this series, showing why she is truly a master of her craft.

One thing I can always count on with Jane Blythe books, is that what I think I know I really don't. Her books will keep you on your toes in angst and always guessing. Ten wasn't any different.
