Bookcation

On the Woman's Bookshelf

I am in love again. Just when I'm getting over one obsession, I move onto another. My love interest now? One Scream Away, a novel written by Kate Brady.

A little while ago I received my review copy in the mail, but I didn't really look at it. I glanced at it on my desk and wondered when I would have time to read. I picked up the book during an intense moment of "I really need to get away" and I couldn't put it down.

One Scream Away is a romantic suspense that follows the killing spree of Chevy Bankes who - when the book begins - has just been paroled. First on his agenda: Get the woman who sent him to jail. Beth Denison, a beautiful antiques dealer with a closet of secrets.

Then enters Neil Sheridan, a former FBI agent who gets pulled into it all. His best friend, a cop named Rick, convinces him to help with a case involving a serial killer that has suspicious similarities to a murder Neil investigated during his career. The case leads Neil to Beth's door and amidst his suspicions of Beth's lies, the detailed descriptions of antique dolls and chilling crime scenes the murders and romance unfold.

For me, reading this book was like watching my favorite episodes of CSI: Miami, Criminal Minds and Without a Trace all wrapped up in one. It's one of those books that you insist you're going to put down as soon as you get to the end of the next chapter, but can't part with because you're so intrigued you have to continue.



I am not exaggerating here. If you love a great story with compelling characters to love and hate along with an awesome plot and unexpected ending then you won't be disappointed with One Scream Away.

Take a moment to check out my last book review.
