  1. Which ones have been your favorite? I love thrillers! :)

  2. Tough!

    The Insider by Reece Hirsch was a great legal thriller. I loved it. I could not believe it was a debut novel, and I can not wait to read more from him!!

    The Storm Front Trilogy by Sharon Sala ( Blown Away, Torn Apart, Swept Aside) was great romantic suspense!

    Smoke Screen and Smash Cut by Sandra Brown were really good!!

    Mister X by John Lutz was great! I thought I had it figured out, and then I thought I was wrong, and suspected someone else, MANY times! It kept me guessing. It was GREAT!! I just found out that it is #5 in a series, though it can be read as a standalone! (now I NEED to find the other 4!)

    Still Missing was fantastic!! Can be a little hard for some readers as there is a bit of violence, and tough subject matter. not too graphic in my opinion. I would highly recommend this one too! (also a debut!)


Please feel free to rave, rant, or ramble!
