The-Chosen-Ones-Kindle

A completely gripping murder mystery thriller with unputdownable suspense (Detective Robyn Carter Book 5)

On a hot summer’s morning, a young father is found murdered in a cornfield, outside the quiet town of Colton. Tied to a post, arms spread wide; Detective Robyn Carter is reminded of the crucifixion, and she knows she’s looking for a killer with a twisted sense of right and wrong.

The victim’s girlfriend is devastated, unable to fathom how she will tell her sick little boy. Still reeling from her own loss, Robyn vows she will find the killer – no matter what.

But then a local doctor – a popular woman with a young family of her own – is found dead outside her surgery. There are similarities between her and the first body and Robyn must take another look at the picture-postcard town, where no one has any enemies.

Can Robyn untangle the hidden web of secrets, lies, and smouldering grudges, at the heart of this close-knit community, before another life is lost?

An absolutely unputdownable thriller that will keep you reading into the night. If you love Angela Marsons, James Patterson or Tess Gerritsen, The Chosen Ones will have you hooked.

~My Review~

4 Unforgettable Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Three murders… one involves a cornfield… one involves a screwdriver… and one involves a car… all are pretty brutal… is there a link? And if so what is the connection?

Robin Carter is a clever, relentless, and committed Detective… this was more than just a case to her and those working with her… I found this case so intriguing and compelling and I loved the approach to solving it… and I was truly surprised by who the guilty party was….

I would give this book all the stars but for one small problem…. I didn’t feel connected to Robin throughout most of the book, although I did more towards the ending… and what an ending… don’t tell anyone this🤫 this is the first book I’ve read in the series, so perhaps I would feel more of a connection had I started with book one, but that’s just between you and me😉

Strongly recommend to fans of the police procedural with a strong female detective…

*** many thanks to Bookouture and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***

The Trailing Spouse

Furniss-TheTrailingSpouse-24952-CV-FT

Amanda Bonham moved halfway around the world to be with the man she loves. Although expat life in Singapore can be difficult, Edward Bonham is a dream husband and a doting father to his teenage daughter, Josie.

But when their maid dies in an apparent suicide—and Amanda discovers the woman was pregnant and hiding a stash of drugs prescribed to Edward—she can’t help but wonder if her perfect husband has a fatal flaw. And if he can’t resist temptation under their own roof, what does he get up to when he travels?

Camille Kemble also has questions for Edward. Recently returned to Singapore, Camille is determined to resolve a family mystery. Amid a jumble of faded childhood memories, she keeps seeing Edward’s handsome face. And she wants to know why.

For one woman, the search for answers threatens everything she has. For another, it’s the key to all she lost. Both will follow his trail of secrets into the darkness to find the truth.
