The Stable Vices Affair
The Chandler Affairs Book 1
By G.W. Renshaw
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
**
**
Veronica Chandler has worked hard
to become a private investigator. At the age of eight she got a baton
for Christmas—just like Mummy’s. At 12, she started working at
her father’s restaurant so she’d have the money for the
investigator’s course. At 16, she became an intern with the Calgary
Police Service. And now, at 18, she’s the youngest licensed PI in
Alberta.
As her ex-boyfriend can attest,
she has the skills. As a psychotic killer discovers, she has the
will. Now she’s ready to take on the world: To find the lost and
expose the faithless.
None of which prepare her for a
house that can’t decide whether it’s empty, one or two perverse
dwarfs with a bizarre hold over their victims, a kinky pony show, and
a secret global organization. Every clue leads to more questions.
Four lives depend on Veronica finding the answers.
And then there’s that pesky
losing-your-soul thing.

There was sharp pain in my foot as the bat struck it, but my boot absorbed most of it. I wiggled harder. My coat got caught on something, and I strained to get away. Just as he grabbed both of my legs, and hauled me out into the street again, my hand grabbed something hard and cold.

There was no thought of consequences as I came out into the sunlight. Danielle’s gun was heavy in my frozen hands as I raised it to the looming shadow overhead.

At that range it would have been almost impossible to miss. As he screamed again I squeezed the trigger. A hole appeared in his chest. He looked surprised.

I managed to squeeze off another round as he began to crumple straight down. It reminded me of video of a building being demolished with explosives.

Two rounds. Centre of mass. Just like in the simulator.  I would have shot him more times if I could have gotten my fingers to work faster. I wasn’t consciously trying for a double tap.

The sound of the shots was deafening. Afterwards, all I could hear was a high-pitched whine in my head. My ears were not impressed by all they’d been through in the past few minutes.

I couldn’t breathe. Maybe it was the cold.

Pain. Cold. Wetness. Silence. Blood.

For a blessedly long time I lay there staring at Danielle. Waiting for the monster to rise again from behind her.

Slowly, I started noticing other things. People on the sidewalks were running away, or standing with their mouths open. They were probably screaming, but I couldn’t hear anything but that whine.

The Prince and the Puppet Affair
The Chandler Affairs Book 2
**
**
Alyssa Blakeway is so submissive
it’s a miracle she left her house, let alone asked Veronica to find
out if her abusive husband is also cheating on her.
When Veronica finds out who
Collin Blakeway is actually going to see, things go from bad to worse
to deadly. They also challenge Veronica’s most deeply held beliefs
as she discovers that demons and magic are real.
It’s no longer a matter of
saving a marriage. Now she has to save the lives of Alyssa, her
sister Kali, an unknown woman, and herself. All while avoiding being
killed by her sister for acting stupidly.
If an arborist, a coven of
Witches, the Vatican, the Freemasons, a Native Elder, and an old
bicycle can’t save them, who can?
**

At that moment, something stabbed me between my shoulder blades.

Stab might be too strong a word, but if the mosquito was big enough that its proboscis had gone through my track suit and jabbed my back, it might be exactly the right word. It felt like I needed to reach the spot between my shoulder blades and pull it out before I passed out from blood loss. Damn, that hurt. How big was that sucker?

During that half second of distraction I tripped over a freaking lawn chair. It was one of those cheap ones with nylon webbing and thin aluminum tubing that makes a big racket when it falls over with almost 60 kilograms of startled private investigator tangled in it. That would have been bad enough, but the deck also had a built-in, recessed hot tub. I fell onto the cover.

Evidently, Collin didn’t approve of rigid pool covers. They probably cost too much for his taste. Instead, he’d bought one of those cheap, floating bubble-wrap things with no structural integrity. Water leaped for joy, and made a big splash as it went everywhere. My top half was soaked, my feet were still tangled in the chair, and my head was underwater.

At least the water was warm.

I floundered for entirely too long, trying to do a reverse sit-up while my hands scrabbled to find the edge of the tub. I managed to grab it, and push myself out. By now, there was not much point in trying to be stealthy, so I kicked the chair free of my legs. Inside the house, a male voice was bellowing. This was not going as well as I’d hoped.

I sprinted up the path to the fence, cooling water trickling from my soaked top down the inside of my trousers. I pushed my way through the tree branches, and jumped for the top of the fence.

Despite the adrenaline fuelling my jump, I wasn’t even close. I slid down the fence boards, and another branch caught me in the same spot on my back.

On my second jump I didn’t even get that high. My clothing got caught on a branch, and I was knocked off balance. I fell backward, and rolled down the slope toward the garden.

It was a good thing that the glass cold frame broke my fall.

The Kalevala Affair
The Chandler Affairs Book 3
**
**
Being shot at and landing in
protective custody certainly cramps a PI’s style, so when a group
of collectors want Veronica to track down an historical artifact in
England, she jumps at the chance. They’ll even handle recovery, so
all she has to do is find the item. It’s a piece of cake.
There are a few details that were
left out. Everybody is after this thing. Veronica has to dodge
bullets meant for another PI, get chased all over Europe by Finnish
terrorists, tries not to violate every national park in the world,
and has to put up with an English investigator who insists on
accompanying her.
Of course, the artifact turns out
to be more dangerous than she was led to believe. Veronica has to
trust somebody who tried to remove her head, decide the fate of the
world, and survive an angry volcano. At least she’s getting paid
for it. If she can collect.

On the way back to our hotel we were walking beside a park when Lana shoved me forward. As I stumbled I saw a big man rushing toward us from the direction of the trees. He was holding an impressive-looking knife in a way that told me he wasn’t an amateur with it. He was wearing a ski mask.

Seriously? A ski mask? How cliché.

Lana had backed away and was starting her capoeira dance. Since I was on the ground he ignored me for the moment it took him to try to figure out how to attack Lana. That gave me a chance to spin around and drive my foot into the side of his knee. He shifted his attention back to me just in time, slashing the knife downward toward my leg. I felt it catch on my jeans, then my foot connected.

His knee buckled with a nasty sound and he grunted. The knife stayed in his hand as he fell. His noise-making didn’t last long as Lana launched herself into the air almost simultaneously and nailed him on his temple with her heel. Her dress billowed out gracefully, and it would have looked spectacular in slow-motion. I don’t think he appreciated the sight before he became extremely unconscious.

Lana looked completely unruffled as she held out her hand to help me up. “Are you all right?”

“Yeah.” That’s when I noticed some blood on my leg. His knife had been sharp enough that the cut wasn’t hurting yet. Through the slice in the fabric it didn’t seem too bad.

She checked his neck for a pulse. “He’s still alive.”

I kicked his knife further from his hand. “That’s a relief. I don’t envy him how he’ll feel when he wakes up.”

Lana peeled back his mask. “How interesting.”

It was our book worm from the Helsinki airport.

“What do we do now?” Lana said.

“I’m not sure. What’s the emergency number in Finland?”

“Try 1-1-2. That’s the European Union emergency number.”

I’d just gotten my phone out when a police car coasted to a stop beside us. A young constable got out with a wary eye on us.

Mitä tapahtui?

“I’m sorry, we don’t understand,” Lana said.

He switched to English. “What happened?”

“This man attacked us with a knife. We defended ourselves.”

The True Love Affair
The Chandler Affairs Book 4
**
**
Veronica has just gotten home
after solving a minor case in Mexico involving kidnapping, betrayal,
bank fraud, and a Colombian drug cartel when an old acquaintance show
up to hire her. Somebody has been committing impossible murders all
over the world, and Veronica is the only person qualified to stop the
killer before the body count soars.
The problems start with her
client. Can she trust a demon prince not to send her back to therapy
or worse for another year? What, if any, is his hidden agenda? Is
anything at all as it seems?
Veronica thought she had a handle
on magic and demons, but as soon as she starts investigating it’s
obvious that all the rules have changed. She’s playing in the big
leagues now, and she’s going to have to move heaven and hell to
keep humanity alive. Starting with herself.
Now, if she can only survive
dinner with her family, a blind date, a small immigration problem,
and working with the federal cabinet, it’s possible that all will
be well.
Or at least as well as it can be
when you have to deal with insane immortals and a talking cat.

There was almost no light in my room, but by the red glow of the numbers on my alarm clock I could see vague shadows in front of me at the foot of the bed. They looked suspiciously like a pair of feet that were blocking my way to the door. My eyes followed the shadows up the dark mass to a quiet blue flame hovering in midair. It moved, becoming brighter for a moment. There was a sound of someone exhaling, and the pungent burning smell became more intense and caught in my throat. The smell wasn’t tobacco.

It was brimstone.

I scurried backward, crab-walking with my butt almost on the floor, until my head hit the night table. The lamp on top teetered and fell to the carpet. I felt the lamp shade brush by my hair as it narrowly missed my head. The crunch of a breaking light bulb was close and immediate.

Adrenaline poured through my system again. I chose to interpret it as anger rather than fear. A male voice with a distinctive lisp familiar to a previous generation of movie-goers spoke in the darkness.

“Nice reflexes, doll, but you should put something on. You look cold.”

I knew that voice. It was far too late for modesty, so I stood up, pushed past the figure, and put on the robe that was hanging on the door. I tied the belt by touch, viciously yanking the ends as I did so. I would have a hell of a time getting it undone later, but that was the least of my worries.

I found the wall switch without much trouble and flicked it upward with a satisfying snap. The result was painfully bright, and I couldn’t help blinking several times. It didn’t make any difference to what I saw, which was exactly what I was hoping I wouldn’t.

Humphrey Bogart, circa 1941, stood in my bedroom, dressed in a well-tailored, three-piece, pin-stripe suit. He’d tossed his fedora over the post at the bottom of my bed.

I really liked normal cases. None of them involved Sam Spade showing up in my bedroom at oh dark seventeen. Especially considering what the bastard had done to me the last time we’d met.

He waved the sulphurous cigarette at me in greeting, and took another puff. How do you even smoke sulphur? The stench tickled my throat, and I made a great effort not to cough. I’d be damned before I’d let him make me cough.

“Put that out. You’ll stink up the whole apartment.”

“Whatever you say, toots.” The cigarette vanished as if it had never existed. The smell did not go with it.

Done Rubbed Out
Reightman & Bailey Book 1
by Jeffery Craig
Genre: Crime Mystery, Thriller
**
**
In this first book of the Reightman & Bailey Series, deceit,
corruption and murder tangle together with vivid, unconventional
characters in a story of unlikely new friendships and their power to
change us.

Things are going well at the Time Out Spa, but the night young proprietor
Toby Bailey discovers his former lover naked and dead on a massage
table, more things are spoiled than just his white leather shoes.
Detective Melba Reightman and partner, Sam Jackson are called in to
investigate and soon become embroiled in the most perplexing homicide
case seen in years.
After a Hunting knife engraved with Toby’s name is found in a pile of wet,
bloody laundry, he’s arrested for the murder of Geraldo Guzman. He
enlists the aid of Madame Zhou Li, practicing attorney and owner of
Green Dragon Chinese Herbs and Teas. The peculiar octogenarian seems
an unlikely choice to defend him, but has a few tricks up her sleeve.
Toby joins forces with Reightman and Jackson and a shocking string of
clues leads them closer to the killer. The bad news? Successfully
solving the crime might unleash a firestorm on this southern city,
and come with a price none of them are prepared to pay.

Hard Job
Reightman & Bailey Book 2
*
In this second Reightman & Bailey thriller, Detective Melba
Reightman is distraught over the murder of her friend and partner,
Sam Jackson. The Guzman murder case has been closed, but she knows
the real killer is still out there somewhere. Toby Bailey’s
discovery of a set of incriminating photos proved there were more
people involved in Geri Guzan’s death than just Dr. Lieberman, but
getting anyone to listen is more of a challenge than she’d ever
imagined. She’s going to need help convincing the powers that be
that the case needs to be reopened, but she’ll find a way to do it.
It’s the only choice she has if she wants to discover who’s
behind it all.

Toby’s still struggling with Geri’s death and the shock at having been the
target of a hitman. Detective Jackson took the bullet meant for him
and saved his life, and he doesn’t understand how things could have
gone so very wrong. No one should have known about the evidence Geri
left behind, but it’s the only explanation that makes any sense. He
has a hunch things are going to get worse, so he’ll just have to
pull up his pants and get on with whatever needs to be done to help
Detective Reightman figure things out.
And as for John Brown? He’s just worried he won’t get paid after
botching the hit on Toby, and can’t help wondering what will happen
next. It wasn’t really his fault. Mistakes were bound to happen
when things got complicated, but who knew this would be such a hard
job?
Things are heating up in this southern city.

Skin Puppet
Reightman & Bailey Book 3
**
In Skin Puppet: Reightman & Bailey Book Three, the whole gang from
Capital Street is back and almost ready for business. It’s just two
weeks until The Reightman & Bailey Agency officially opens, but
Melba Reightman and Toby Bailey have things pretty much under
control. After the horrific events of the last six months, things are
starting to feel normal again.

An inconvenient lisp from a busted lip isn’t slowing Toby down, but it
makes him sound embarrassing like a cartoon character. And there’s
the whole awkward situation with Jon Chiang. One minute Zhou Li’s
nephew is cold and distant, and the next minute…well, Toby could
swear the guy might be interested in something more. It’s all very
confusing.
Melba’s got her hands full completing last minute paperwork so they can open
for business. There’s the huge stack of invitations Madame Zhou
dropped off, all needing to be hand-addressed. Melba doesn’t see
the need for a huge grand opening party, but there’s no point in
arguing with the bossy owner of Green Dragon. To top things off, Zhou
Li is strongly hinting that Melba needs a new dress.
With so much going on, the reports of children missing from the local area
haven’t really registered on anyone’s radar. The single flyer
posted by a desperate mother looking for her daughter was disturbing,
but it’s really a matter for the local police, not the Reightman &
Bailey Agency. Right?
Wrong. Things are never that easy.

 

WARNING: This novel deals with mature subject matter.

Under Parr by Andrea Bramhall – Book Tour

09/06/17

 


Under Parr

Andrea Bramhall

Genre: Mystery, LGBT
Publisher: Ylva Publishing
Publication date: May 3 2017
ISBN: 978-3-95533-744-5

Book Description:

December 5th, 2013 left its mark on the North Norfolk Coast in more ways than one. A tidal surge and storm swept millennia-old cliff faces into the sea and flooded homes and businesses up and down the coast. It also buried a secret in the WWII bunker hiding under the golf course at Brancaster. A secret kept for years, until it falls squarely into the lap of Detective Sergeant Kate Brannon and her fellow officers.
A skeleton, deep inside the bunker.
How did it get there? Who was he…or she? How did the stranger die—in a tragic accident or something more sinister? Well, that’s Kate’s job to find out.
**
**

About the Author:

Andrea Bramhall wrote her first novel at the age of six and three-quarters. It was seven pages long and held together with a pink ribbon. Her Gran still has it in the attic. Fast forward a few years and Andrea Bramhall is a highly-respected author of eight novels and multiple-award winning writer including the Lambda Literary Award, Golden Crown Award and a Lavender Certificate. Under Parr is the second in the Norfolk Coast Investigation Series, following on the success of the 2016 release Collide-O-Scope (also published by Ylva Publishing).
When she isn’t busy running a campsite in the Lake District, Andrea is hunched over her laptop scribbling down the stories that won’t let her sleep. She can also be found reading, walking the dogs up mountains while taking a few thousand photos, scuba diving while taking a few thousand photos, swimming, kayaking, playing the saxophone, or cycling.
Andrea’s writing style demonstrates her commitment to tackling issues close to her heart through fiction – such as euthanasia, assisted living and ageing – combined with a serious passion for detail. The police procedures in the Norfolk Investigation Series, for example, are precise and true to life. During her research, Andrea talked in length to retired and working police officers to ensure that the facts and procedures are as close to reality as possible, without becoming a work of non-fiction.
Having worked her way through college as a carer in nursing homes, NHS homes, private independent homes, and BUPA homes, before moving into working in hospitals and prison psychiatric wards, Andrea has lived through many eye-opening experiences that have inevitably informed some of the characters and situations in her fiction writing. Her time spent helping to care for her grandfather with Alzheimer’s disease was also hugely impactful. Andrea’s love of the beautiful North Norfolk Coast is incredibly influential to her writing. Andrea says: “Now I live in the Lake District with my partner and our two dogs, on our new campsite, and it is proving to be as inspiring as Norfolk ever was. After all, the Lakes have a long history of inspiring creatives in their work”.

All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in
Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and
profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the
remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to
be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this
serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the
killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and
bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this
killer to murder?
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a
torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an
even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads
draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is
clear, though: the killing isn’t going to stop until they figure it
all out. And they are running out of time…
**Can easily be read as a standalone!!**

Midnight Angel (The Council Book 1)
by Tracey A. Wood (Goodreads Author)

Susan James‘s 5 STAR review

Aug 01, 2016

it was amazing

Midnight Angel is not the kind of book I normally read. I love books set in England, but as a rule I don’t read any romance tinged with horror and graphic violence. But I couldn’t put Midnight Angel down. I had to know what happened.
Kat is a divorcee with a grown son. She’s bought herself a new cottage and is planning a great time redecorating with her best friends. When she’s assaulted by a monster everything changes. The assault leaves her with terrible wounds and new powers. Suddenly she can see things she’s never seen before, including a lover who first comes to her in dreams. Kat’s caught up in the battle between angels and demons and if she and her new friends don’t find the demons, it could mean the end of our world. Wonderful first book. Looking forward to reading the next one.

US Review

5 STAR Unique and gripping to the very last page

ByRebeccaon October 26, 2016

Format: Paperback

Midnight Angel captured my interest from page one.

The author crafted paranormal suspense that kept me on the

edge of me seat…and made me late for work yesterday!

Through the shape shifting tale, she told a very possible

romantic story that gave a realistic feel to the novel. I love

getting caught up in the world of a book and peeking over my

shoulder just to make sure the paranormal isn’t real. Yes, it

was that good! I loved all the side characters and hope this

author continues with their stories in a continuing series.

4 STAR

After surviving a vicious attack Kat Shaw learns that monsters really do exist in the world. She begins having dreams of brutal murders and finds that she is seeing what the demon who had attacked her is actually doing. Kat is thrown into the battle of good versus evil as her attacker stalks her and continues to murder innocent victims.

First, a couple of things about Midnight Angel. This one is definitely an adult fantasy read as there was quite a bit of sexual content going on. It took me a bit of getting used to as I’m used to the whole demon fighting type of read being mostly young adult. Plus with this one there’s a bit of a love triangle situation with the main character meeting two men.

Otherwise, I like the idea behind the plot in this one. The idea of surviving an attack only to end up linked to the attacker was certainly interesting. To be injured and have your injuries heal rather quickly would be odd enough but to learn what you are seeing is actually taking place and there is a whole world out there you didn’t know existed was a fun topic.

Why weren’t there more lights backstage? I felt like a mouse in a maze.  It was difficult to tell if the hanging costumes were people or if the shadows were hanging costumes.  There he was!  “Excuse me sir!  Sir!”  He turned around and caught my eye. I managed to hold his gaze for a moment.  He was nervous, almost frightened.  His eyes a deep brown, he seemed to want to say something, but instead he fell into the low lighting and disappeared.  I picked up my pace to try and catch him.  “Wait!”  I briskly walked and then ran past racks and racks of costumes and odd set design items like furniture, tall plants, and a fake standing bear.

“Wait! Please, I want to talk to you!” The backstage door swung open and blinding light flooded me where I stood, and hindered my view.  He was gone.   I quickly looked to the left and then to the right and no one was there.  I looked to the left again and then began to run along the backside of the theatre.  I slowed down, because I realized that he was in fact gone.  Why would anyone run from a perfect stranger unless they had something to hide or something to lose? Turning around, I walked back towards the backstage door. I again waded through the racks of hanging costumes and walking shadows of actors and busy people.  Why would he run?  I found myself back in my seat.

Single mom and gourmet cat food
entrepreneur Colbie Summers thought she’d escaped her tiny
California hometown forever. But when her father needs her, she packs
up her adolescent son, their finicky feline, Trouble, and her budding
business. She knows change is tough—but she doesn’t expect it to
be murder . . .
Between dealing with her newly rural
life, her grumpy, sports-obsessed father, and preparing to showcase
her products in the local Sunnyside Power Mom’s trade show, Colbie
has more on her plate than she bargained for. Luckily, she has her
official taste-tester, Trouble, by her side to vet her
Meow-io Batali Gourmet Cat Food line.
Things look promising—until one of the Power Moms is found
dead—with an engraved Meow-io specialty knife buried in her chest.
As the prime suspect, Colbie needs
paws on the ground to smoke out who had means, motive, and
opportunity among the networking mothers—including a
husband-stealing Sofia Vergara lookalike. And the cat’s still not
out of the bag when a second violent death rocks the bucolic
community. Trouble may have nine lives, but Colbie’s only got one
to clear her name and stop a killer from pulling off the purr-fect
crime . . .
