The Hubley Case by J. Lee

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book takes off running with the murder of Peter Hubley while in Brazil. Who is Peter Hubley and why was he murdered is not the only mystery. Everything surrounding this murder is bizarre.

FBI Special Agent Nikki Benton is assigned to this confusing case for unknown reasons. Ex

marine Ben Siebert, friend of Peter Hubley and his family, gets a call from the new widow to find answers she’s not getting from anyone. Benton and Siebert are both investigating this devastating crime. Turns out the murder of Peter Hubley is a symptom of a much bigger crime. Bodies are piling up. No one is cooperating with each other.

Friction builds between Benton and Siebert. Siebert is increasingly frustrated over the constant dead ends and the fact Siebert seems to always be ahead of her in the investigation. Why is Benton’s concern.

There is a lot going on in this book. Unknown covert operations are thrown into the mix. Who’s innocent? Who’s at the heart of this turmoil? This is a complicated page turner that will keep you guessing.

Orbs II. Stranded By Nicholas Sansbury Smith

 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book picks up where Orbs 1 left off.  This is a post apocalyptic story centering around the same Biosphere Project from Orbs 1.  The mission of The Project is forced to adjust its objective to staying alive, taking on survivors while avoiding the indestructible aliens which are destroying earth and killing everyone for their own benefit.

Orbs is what the aliens do to some people. They are encased in an orb. Nothing good happens after that.   This is the fate of only some.  This may be the best fate offered to  people of earth as compared to other options the aliens have.  Earth is literally dying in this book.  Reality of what is happening and what can be done to ensure people aren’t erased from our world is what Orbs 2 is about.   

The characters are well defined.  These characters are real.  I developed attachments to them.  Going on this unspeakably journey with these people is captivating.  I could not put this book down.  More than just a page turner.  Action and drama packed.  I immediately moved on to Orbs 3.

Orbs by Nicholas Sansbury Smith

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is an incredible book. I am loving the series which started with this page turner. Orbs is a unique apocalyptic story. Centering around a Bioshere project that turns into more than anyone involved signed up for.  The characters are well defined. Each one becomes a real person. Not just some character in a book. Action packed from the first chapter.

I started this book having no idea what it was even about. A friend recommended it. I’m addicted to this series now. Reading this page turner here or there, whenever I can.

The Body Counter by Anne Frasier. Book #2 in the Jude Fontaine Detective Series

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is the second book in The Detective Jude Fontaine Detective Series. It’s written as a stand alone book. Everything is explained so those new to this series will know everything necessary to follow this story.

Detective Jude Fontaine is the main character partnered with Detective Uriah Ashby. Together they are tasked with figuring out who is behind killing people with what seems to be some random reasoning. Both detectives are dealing with a difficult past. Jude more so than Uriah. Jude is

somewhat of a celebrity, not by her own choice. Both detectives are battling their past while trying to effectively solve this case with a rising body count.

The characters are well developed. Complex and interesting plot. Fast paced page turner. I did not want to it this down.

The Strange Curse of Breda by Steven Arnett

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Breda, Michigan is a small town that was cursed a long time ago. Nothing has ever happened in this small town where everyone knows each other until recently. Murders start causing residents to fear for their lives. Is this from that curse or something else?

Jim Leiden is the main character in this puzzling murder mystery. With each page the suspense builds as the plot thickens. Multiple law enforcement agencies become involved. This Breda Murders gets national attention

This is one of those books that’s starts out good. Suddenly it’s a page turner you don’t want to put down. The characters are well defined. The author really puts a lot of effort into establishing his characters to the point he actually adds the appropriate accent when necessary. A southern accent has Ah for I.

This is a captivating story that continually builds. It’s impossible to figure out where this story will go as you read it. I really enjoyed the suspense building aspect. It creeps up on you. Complex plot which is so well written it’s an easy read.
