Colleen Chesebro 5 Stars *****

Format: Paperback 5 Reader Enjoyment 5: 5 Overall 𝓡𝓪𝓽𝓮

Hunting Mariah is written by J. E. Spina, an award-winning children’s author. This novel is her debut into the mystery and crime genre.

The story is set in a New York suburb, where a killer is on the loose, terrorizing a college campus filled with young students.

Be prepared to be creeped out as J. E. Spina gives us an intimate view into the thought processes of a killer. Spina portrays this character as if she channeled the thoughts and actions of a real serial killer. The guy is deranged and takes pleasure in the sight, smell, and the feel of blood. Her descriptions were chilling!

The story revolves around the protagonist, Mariah Hampton who suffers from amnesia and Dr. Roberts, who is helping her to remember the savage attack she endured at the hands of an unnamed man. Through most of the book, this man’s identity is a secret which adds to the suspense building.

As Mariah’s memories begin to resurface, she realizes that the family secrets from her past have exploded into the future.

J. E. Spina has written a whopper of a murder mystery. She strings the reader along, giving nothing away until the explosive ending!

Book Review on Amazon:

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

Mariah’s Revenge is the thriller/suspense/crime fiction sequel to Author Janice (J. E.) Spina’s book titled ‘Hunting Mariah’. If you remember in book one, we traveled with Mariah on a psychic journey to recover her memories, as she lived with the consequences of living life with a maniac.

Jump right into book two as we get a better understanding of Sage’s killing spree across New Hampshire, Vermont and New York. While police officers, FBI agents and others are looking for Sage, Mariah buried herself in her studies, as she is determined to move forward.

Sage has encountered an enemy of his own, beyond his wildest imagination. While he is dealing with injuries of his own, he is unaware that someone is watching Mariah and ready to “take over where he left off”. When a body of an old woman, a dog and then another body at Tambor Lake is discovered, the authorities know they are dealing with a psychopath and the body count is sure to rise.

Author Janice (J. E.) Spina uses a full case of supporting characters in this suspenseful, action-driven drama where Mariah finds the courage to take things into her own hands. Mariah is not one to give up. Her heart is open for lasting love when her grandmother shows support for her and Tony.

Mariah showed her courage and determination to handle any situation and I quote. “Mariah pushed open the door and moved her light back and forth. She saw a mess of broken down furniture piled up in one corner of the room and a bed in the other. The covers appeared to be piled up under the bed. She moved closer to look under the pile. She kept her gun out in front of her and the light sweeping back and forth. Mariah wasn’t prepared for what happened next.”

This is a must read if you believe in the kind of fortitude that Mariah uses to work through her tragedies and the kidnapping to forge a friendship and embrace whatever life has next in store.

I, Theodocia McLean, endorse Mariah’s Revenge by Janice (J. E.) Spina as an adventure that is not over. I now wait for the third book in this series to find out what life has in store for Mariah. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on June 1, 2018
