Jean Rabe recommends

Hurt Mountain (2024)
Angela Crook
"A mystery within a mystery frosted with a rekindled romance. Hurt Mountain is suspenseful when it should be, with vivid, intense writing that sparkles. It's spiked with some gut punches and the splintered, aching loss of family torn apart and found. Olivia and Brandon are characters I wish I'd created. Recommended."
thumb
The Secrets on Chicory Lane (2017)
Raymond Benson
"Where a novel lands on a bookstore shelf is defined by label: mystery, suspense, thriller, horror, literary. Raymond Benson’s The Secrets on Chicory Lane is all of those things, and a little more. . . . Benson sculpts perfect sentences and scenes, memories and emotions dripping off the pages."
thumb
Zombies, Werewolves, & Unicorns (2010)
Stephen D Sullivan
"Stephen D. Sullivan is a master at crafting fast-paced action scenes that keep the pages turning. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. The two tales are that engrossing."
thumb
The Golden Cord (2008)
(Iron Dragon, book 1)
Paul Genesse
"Paul Genesse's tale is elegantly written and filled with rich, believable heroes and villains. He transports you to a vibrant fantasy world that feels so real and complex you won't want to leave. It is irresistible."
