Synopsis: Katie Calumet takes a morning run and when she suddenly hears a baby crying out she starts to get nervous. She goes and investigates a van with a wailing baby because of fear for the child’s safety. When Katie gets closer she is hit on the head and is completely unconscious. Katie was trapped and now is kidnapped against her will. When Katie wakes up she has absolutely no idea where she’s been taken and where she could be.
While Katie is helplessly trying to escape her kidnappers, Investigator Justin Cross is taken through a large forest to try and locate Katie, even if its the last thing he will do to find her. With Katie’s family holding back secrets and Justin’s inability to sleep and outside family problems, the chance of finding Katie becomes scarce. There is only one question; can they find Katie before it’s too late?
Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 suspenseful stars! The story was split between the victim and the investigator’s POV and I loved that! This book had me up late turning pages and on the edge of my seat. I felt like I could feel the victim and the ivestigator’s emotions in this enthralling thriller. I loved the characterization and this book was very well written. I highly recommend checking out this suspenseful title. Bookouture never lets me down with their suspenseful titles and would recommend all of the books they publish! I loved how the author put this story together!!!

Review: Wow!!! This book was fantastic and I give it without hesitation 5 out 5 mysterious stars! I had to put this book off for a little bit because I got sick but started reading it last night. I stayed up all night turning pages to this fun mystery until I finished but it was worth the sleepless night! This book made me smile, laugh, gave me the jeepers creepers and warmed my heart. Mac’s character is fantastic! He is the epitome of a southern gentleman.
Mac has his faults but he is such a good hearted southern man. I also thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humor and his love for Kate. I agree with many women in this book that Kate is a lucky woman! I also enjoyed Kate’s compassionate spirit. Dakota was also a fantastic character with her rugged past but a custom personality fitted with mouth of a sailor. I loved the characterization in Deadly Spirits.
I loved how this book had me turning pages and at the edge of my seat with suspense. This was the perfect novel for the Halloween season. Even though Deadly Spirits is Book 4 in the series, you can definitely read this book as a standalone basis. This book gives you just the right amount of details about the character’s past so you don’t feel like your missing something.
I will definitely not be reading Deadly Spirits as a standalone. I can’t wait until I get the chance to devour the rest of this series! I loved your writing Mr. Helms and Mac’s southern chivalrous personality! I will follow you anywhere!😊📚❤
I’m so happy that E. Michael Helms provided me with a copy of Deadly Spirits! I can’t wait to dig into to this whodunit mystery! This is the perfect time of the year for a great mysterious suspense!
E. Michael Helms has a blog on WordPress! You can find him @ emichaelhelms.wordpress.com 📚😁 He is such a kind and supportive blogger! He is highly reviewed on Goodreads and other platforms I suggests you guys check his series and blog out!
Thank you so much Mr. Helms for this opportunity! I can’t wait to dig into this whodunit😁📚

Review: I loved this cozy and loved Juliet Langley! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Review: I really enjoyed this title! Esme took me on a quick, wild and hilarious ride. I felt this book was very well written and even though I don’t usually like reading memoirs, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Esme’s journey to Italy made my want to visit Italy turn more into a need! I love the descriptions in this book and felt that I could connect with the main character’s emotions. The only reason I did not rate this book 5 stars is because I felt it was a little repetitive when it came to comparing this book to another book. I recommend this book if you like a good memoir and something to give you a good laugh. It is a great hit it and quit it kind of read. I devoured this book within a few hours.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Reading my loves!
