Title Hole in the Woods
AuthorJennifer Graeser Dornbush
Release date:  August 4, 2020
Description July 1989, in a sleepy Michigan town, high school grad, Nina Laramie, heads out with her friends and is never seen alive again. Months later, her skeleton is found near a remote party spot in the forest.

The ME determines Nina has been brutally raped and bludgeoned to death. Fear and anger ripple through this tight knit community when the case goes cold.

Thirty years later, Riley St. James, a Detroit PD assigned to Nina’s case, is determined to get her first big cold case win despite having a similar past to the victim. Relying on her investigative prowess and gut instinct, Riley tracks down a witness, who saw Nina Laramie’s murder. But as the truth comes to light, Riley must face the killers who want their secret to stay in the Hole in the Woods.

Based on the 1989 true-life murder case of Shannon Siders for Newaygo County, Michigan. After the case went dormant, a Michigan cold case team formed in 2011 and uncovered new evidence that enabled them to arrest, try, and convict the killers, who were sent to prison for Shannon’s murder in 2015.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 8/2/2020

 

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

Holy crapcicles, it’s August.  I’m gettnig more behind in my book challenge every day.  I tried the new NetGalley app that they have now.  They’ve also got audiobooks now, which is fine, except I can’t get it to download.  That’s a problem when you actually have to listen to the book to review it.

I’ve also gotta a new kitten.  Her name is Schatzi and she is a demon child.  She was very sick when I found her but we stuck it out and she’s ok now, hence the demon child comment.  Here’s a picture of the little addition.

 

 

 

Now on to books.  I’ve bought the new Faith Hunter Soulwood book featuring Nell Ingram.  I haven’t started it yet, but it’s always on my mind.  I really need to get to it.  I’ve got a couple others that are on hold because…you know…kitten.  Anyway, here’s what I found for this week.

This series looks fun.  The title is what attracted me this time.

 

Title Mr. Hell, Meet Ms. Haunted
AuthorMarian Tee
Series: Midlife Goddess #1
Release date:  May 2020
DescriptionWho says there’s no dating in the afterlife?

Saoirse Sullivan is not your average 38-year-old ghost. For one thing, she’s also afraid of other ghosts, which means instead of doing the haunting, she has to worry about being haunted. But things get a whole lot interesting when she meets Hadrian, a gorgeous living creature with the rare ability to interact with ghosts like her.
From being the mind-her-own-business type of ghost, Saoirse suddenly finds herself thrust into a whirlwind of murder, mayhem, and magic, juggling her time between battling poltergeists, chasing after a missing subject of Tartarus, and dating a smoldering-hot bounty hunter of Hell.

Note: This is a companion novel to A Season of Gods and Witches. It has murder, mystery, and mayhem, along with a hot and heavy romance between two consenting adults. Magical happy ever after guaranteed!

 

Now this one looks perfect when you feel particularly thirsty for vengence.  I think I’m going to start this one soon!

TitleBlood Bounty
AuthorTim Miller
SeriesJax Masters #1
Release date:  May 15, 2020

Deal with the Devil by Kit Rocha

They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process…

Title:  Deal with the Devil
Author:  Kit Rocha
Series:  Mercenary Librarians #1
Publish Date:  July 28, 2020
Source:  NetGalley
Publisher’s Description: Nina is an information broker with a mission–she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.

Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he’s fighting to survive.

They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process…

Or they could do the impossible: team up.

This is the first book in a near-future science fiction series with elements of romance.

 

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words, there may be…SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

I’m gonna tell you straight off that I really liked this book.  I’m not really very keen on post-apocolyptic stories.  I watch the news so I can see where we are going.  But…this one kept my interest.

The way the story is put together is that there are two mercenary groups featured.  One crew takes care of people in their neighborhood and the other just exist to stay alive.  In this time snap shot, the USA is plunged into a hightened state of fear.  The largest tech company of the time has been implanted into people to make stronger super soldiers.  These super soldiers are supposed to keep everyone in line because the tech company rules all.  There is also a genetic sciences group that grow bio engineered clones.  All the powers that be want power and money.  To get that they will take out anyone that gets in their way.  If the soldiers grow a conscience, they are…decommissioned.  If anyone shows any inkling of not toeing the line, they are tortured and if they don’t withstand that, then they really weren’t worthy to start with.

The two crews that are featured in this book are such people.  Nina and her crew help keep their neighborhood going.  Captain Knox and his crew are just trying to stay alive.  They are the elitest of the elite and the tech company is really miffed that Knox went AWOL.  Just to make things interesting, the tech companies have a “kill” switch on their soldiers.  They each require maintenance at periodic times to keep their body’s tech from degrading.  If the tech goes too long without maintenance, it will kill them.  Slowly.  Painfully.  Really nice company, huh?

Anyway, the premise of the story has deception integrated within the relationship between the two crews.  It’s all a very simple situation when you cut it down to bare bones, but there are twists and turns that are unexpected.  It’s a really good story.  There is sex, violence, swearing and death.  I give it a 5.
