‘A gripping and extremely well-written novel which I thoroughly enjoyed’

I don’t think I’m going to be able to find the words to say how much I enjoyed this book. Not sure what to expect, as it was recommended to me by a friend, from the very first page, I was hooked. For a start, it’s based in the UK, which is a nice change from the US or an alternative, dystopian world, and furthermore was set in the seventies, an era I have rosy, childhood memories of, so the whole tone, language and music which featured throughout felt nostalgically familiar.

This book is by an independent author, and I’m always a little concerned as to what the quality of the writing is going to be, to say nothing of the spelling, punctuation, grammar and even formatting. Having suffered through books that should have been written in crayon, they were so full of childish spelling mistakes, to books where the author clearly didn’t have the first clue about how to format, I really have seen it all. I needn’t have worried. The formatting was exactly as it should be, the punctuation was all present and correct, and there wasn’t a single spelling mistake to be found.

So, technically it’s perfect, but what about the writing itself? I’m happy to report that this too was top rate. Using a crisp and pacy style, the writer is clearly one very talented lady, and her skill shines through each and every word. Her characters are instantly believable and three dimensional, and you really suffer along with her main character, Kerry. Guessing what her terrible Secret is fairly early on in the book, you’d have to have a heart made of stone, not to sympathise with her predicament.

I became so caught up in the story, I found myself becoming angry with the mother character, talking out loud and even slamming down my kindle in exasperated fury at one point – this is always a sign of a truly gripping book with me.

Overall, a gripping and extremely well-written novel which I thoroughly recommend, and I will certainly be looking to read some more from this author.

Review for The Secret by Nessa 4 stars
‘What a truly great read this is’

What a truly great read this was, I was drawn in from the very first page. I loved getting to know the main character of Kerry which was very well portrayed. In fact all of the characters were brilliantly written.

I also couldn’t help but fall in love with Tommy, he sounded like a great guy and I certainly wouldn’t have minded riding on the back of his motorbike that’s for sure.

The whole book was brilliantly written and thought out. The story dealt with some very difficult situations of a sensitive nature which I thought the author weaved into the story perfectly.

This is my second book I’ve read of this author and I’m already looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.

A Cry in the Night received its first review this week.

5-Stars given by an ‘Amazon Customer’

Rick, a world-famous rock star appears to have it all. But the price of fame is too much. He’s tired, physically, mentally and emotionally so goes off to an isolated seaside hideaway.
The only other apartment that appears occupied, is done so by Gemma, a girl more miserable than him. Every time he sees her she is crying or shows the signs of having just been crying.
After bumping into each other a few times, and a mishap with keys, Gemma and Rick finally get to talk to each other. They speak about their past, and what they want for the future. Her smile is infectious.
What will happen when their few stolen moments have to come to an end?

Down by the River, a five star review by Elizabeth Horton-Newton. Author
‘Riveting Thriller about small town secrets’

Sometimes good things come in small packages. This is true of Karen J. Mossman’s thriller Down by The River: An Electric Eclectic Book. From the first paragraph when Shelby steps off the bus, the feeling of impending doom is palpable. She has returned to the small North Louisiana town where she had grown up to reconnect with her childhood friend Mary-Jo.
It is apparent the girls relied on one another for support during difficult times. Mary-Jo had been writing letters to Shelby telling her about Ricky, her boyfriend. Much like Shelby and Mary-Jo, he was an outcast, an outsider from the town. Now Mary-Jo is missing and Ricky is suspected of killing her. He had already been a suspect in the deaths of his mother and her lover when their trailer caught on fire and they perished.
When she arrives at the trailer shared by Ticky and Mary-Jo, the young man is less than welcoming. He wastes no time in letting Shelby know her friend felt abandoned when the young woman left town. Their conversation is interrupted when the police burst in to arrest Ricky. In spite of his coolness toward her, Shelby speaks up in his defense.
Shelby s shocked to discover another person from her past was now Sheriff of the town. Rawden Hughes is arrogant and Shelby is uneasy around him because she “owed him a favor”. Once Ricky has been taken away in a police car, Shelby sets out walking to her father’s house.
Her father is an alcoholic who has let his appearance go over the years. It seems he has stopped drinking. Like Ricky, he upbraids Shelby for abandoning Mary-Jo. However, he also tells her she was foolish to return to the town. In spite of her father’s lukewarm welcome, Shelby spends the night in her old room.
The next day Mary-Jo’s body is found in the river. When she discusses this with her father he expresses his belief that Ricky killed Mary-Jo. Despite Ricky’s less than warm greeting, Shelby believes he is innocent. She goes to the river where her friend’s body had been discovered and runs into Rawden Hughes. While he admits he hasn’t charged Ricky with the murder, he fully expects him to confess. They speak briefly about the debt she owes him although neither clarifies what he has done for her.
Next Shelby visits Mary-Jo’s family. Like everyone else, they believe Ricky is guilty of murder. Shelby makes it clear she feels Ricky is innocent. Avoiding an argument, she makes polite conversation before returning to her father’s house. She is stunned to find her father is drunk when she gets there. As they argue, her father grows more hostile until he tells her to leave.
Distraught she leaves the house and begins walking toward town. Soon Rawden sees her as he is driving past and offers her a ride. Shelby hesitates and the debt she owes Rawden along with what happened between them comes to the surface. Just as she resigns herself to getting into Rawden’s car Ricky shows up.
As the story progresses secrets from the past are revealed and Mary-Jo’s killer is revealed. This is a riveting story and I couldn’t set it down until I finished. It moves quickly, and the tension builds rapidly. It is a well written and well-paced short story.
I highly recommend this novelette and look forward to reading more by Karen J. Mossman. I also plan to read more of the Electric Eclectic Novelettes since I have enjoyed everyone I’ve read so far.

A Review for The Truth Will Out

Josh wrote ‘A Memorable, Stick With You Read’ and gave it 5 stars.

I am sure most will agree Domestic Violence is a serious problem. It comes in all shapes, sizes, religions, sex’s and colors. It doesn’t discriminate. It is the predator versus the prey, the control and the loss of control, it is the threatening vows of the oppressor and the silent cries of the victim. This story is about such a thing.
The author captures the truth of Domestic Violence at its center through character development and vivid description. This is a memorable, stick with you kind of read. A true suspense thriller that will keep you turning the pages! Once you start reading it you won’t want to stop! If you have ever been a victim of Domestic Violence or are close to someone that has, some of this story may resonate a bit deeper than it might for others, but everyone that reads this will know on some level what Domestic Violence feels like after reading this.
