Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas ($26.99)
One woman is trapped in the death-grip of the past—and every one of its dark secrets—in this riveting novel of psychological suspense from the award-winning author of The Sisters and Local Girl Missing.
She can run…
As much as Libby Hall needs a vacation, she’s never considered taking one until she sees the note for a house swap. Suffering a miscarriage was a personal turning point. Saving a child from a burning school was a public one. Just as the emotional fallout of both incidents takes its toll, along comes her lifesavers—the Heywoods, a couple in need of a getaway of their own.
But she can’t hide…
Libby and her husband Jamie can’t believe their good fortune when they arrive at the Heywood’s isolated seaside estate with its panoramic views—and just in exchange for their drab two-bedroom apartment. How generous of the Heywoods! Yet how odd. Libby almost feels guilty until the home yields disquieting surprises: a fortune in hidden surveillance equipment, a stranger in the garden who watches them, and the make-shift operating room in the basement…
Because someone knows her secret…
When Jamie falls dangerously ill, all Libby wants is to return to their comfortably imperfect lives. But it’s already too late. Libby has just discovered the Heywoods’ biggest secret. And when it appears that even Jamie is hiding something from her, Libby’s paranoia gets the best of her. It should. For she has buried secrets of her own. As the past comes crawling out of the darkness, Libby fears she’s walked into an elaborate trap. But who has set it? What do they want of her? And what is she willing to risk to make it out alive…?
The back of the book contains praises for the story and they got us really excited!
The synopsis is printed on the flap of the dust jacket. It’s a psychological thriller, with many twists and turns that we didn’t expect!
The compelling writing style of the author is commendable. We found it hard to put this book down because we were always so curious about what would happen next.
The characters are also well-fleshed-out. They weren’t perfect, but they seemed real and believable!
Tailspin by Sandra Brown ($12.99)
A daring pilot races against time to deliver an important package — and keep it from falling into the wrong hands — in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller of spine-tingling suspense and tantalizing romance.
Rye Mallett, a fearless “freight dog” pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But above all, he has a rock-solid reputation: he will fly in the foulest weather, day or night, and deliver the goods safely to their destination. So when Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn’t ask questions.
As Rye’s plane nears the isolated landing strip, more trouble than inclement weather awaits him. Greeted with a sabotage attempt on his plane, he has barely recovered from the crash landing when he meets Dr. Brynn O’Neal, who claims she is receiving the box for Dr. Lambert. Though he has a strict “no-involvement policy” when it comes to others’ problems, Rye finds himself being irresistibly drawn in to the intrigue surrounding his cargo . . . and to the mysterious and alluring Brynn.
Soon Rye and Brynn are in a treacherous forty-eight-hour race to deliver the box. With everyone from law enforcement officials to hired guns hot on their heels, they must learn to trust each other to protect their valuable cargo from those who would kill for it.
The back of the book features a photo of the author.
It’s a romantic suspense novel. There’s more suspense than the romance though, but it’s all good!
It was slow-paced but the second half of the book made up for it. There are some good dialogues here and the writing is just compelling.
So much danger, action, and suspense got us hooked until the very last page! Definitely a worthy read for mystery fans like us!
