I am delighted to once again join Zoe at Zooloos Book Diary and to take part in her Author Take Over. This is Zoe’s fabulous idea and this week she is talking, grilling and discussing the book by Book Blogger and Author Noelle Holten.
Noelle has two books published and I know there is also a third due soon and I am sure there is a 4th in progress. Having read and loved the first two books I am going to share snippets of my reviews.
Dead Inside is the first time I got to meet DC Maggie Jamieson and is a brilliant start to the series.
“The thing I liked about this book, well actually there was lots of things I loved, not just liked. Hang on! Scrap that!!! I loved everything about this book! The story is set out in very quick chapters that flitted back and forth between the main characters. It meant that the pace was good and had me eager to read what would happen to each character, I wanted to know” about everyone all at the same time!
If you want a hard-hitting crime thriller then you seriously need to get this book. A fabulous story that is the beginning of what I feel will be an amazing writing career.
I think you can tell from these snippets that I really liked the book. You can read my full review HERE
Dead Wrong is the second book in the series, and here are a few of my thoughts…
The author has created such a good baddie with Bill Raven, he loves to play mind games and Maggie is in the firing line for him as he gets under her skin and taunts her at every turn. Maggie and the team have to go back over notes, files and every bit of information they have to try and discover what was missed and also to see if they have got the wrong man.
This is a fabulous 2nd book in the series and if you are a fan of crime thriller reads then this is going to be a book that is right up your street. It is fast-paced, gritty, at times creepy and cleverly written. I would definitely recommend it and I would also advise putting the 3rd book on your wish list.
