Not only will fans jump for joy when they see the name Sandra Brown with a new title, but they will also be ‘over the moon’ when they realize that is actually a story collection of romantic suspense tales that are insanely good. Thirty short stories are included, written by some of the biggest names in the mystery/thriller genre. From Lee Child to Sherrilyn Kenyon to Heather Graham, these bestselling authors have outdone themselves with passionate tales of murder and mystery.
To offer just a few ‘golden nuggets’ of storytelling, William Bernhardt gives readers a tale titled, After Hours. This extremely riveting murder involves a beautiful girl who, literally, had no enemies. However, when the medical examiner comes up with a big surprise that stuns detectives, readers will be shocked as they ‘watch’ an ending unfold that is an absolute blast
Another story you’ll never forget comes from James Macomber. This sinister tale takes place in London, where a ‘not so very nice husband’ finds himself in court battling for custody of his children. After losing his argument and the children get ready to head to the home of their mother, the woman simply disappears. Police, in their attempt to locate her, are led on a hunt that takes them to Execution Dock, which is a place that was once used to slowly torture pirates, mutineers, and other seafaring men for their sins.
Alexandra Sokoloff’s fans will love her tale of a young woman who is brokenhearted by her failed engagement and decides to go on her planned honeymoon all alone. Setting off for Paradise Island to stay in a lovely hotel called The Atlantis, she finds herself surrounded by a stunningly mysterious man and a beautiful jewel-encrusted box that has a history you will not believe.
This review could go on and on considering the brilliant talent, tall tales, and exciting and passionate romance this collection offers. But to save space, my advice is simply to go out and get it immediately! You’ll have a ball with these authors!
Until Next Time, Everybody!
