Hunting Mariah and Mariah’s Revenge – Thrillers/Mysteries/Suspense/Crime/Unputdownable Novels for 18+!

Have you been looking for a thriller/mystery/suspense/crime that is unputdownable? Check out this two-book series, Hunting Mariah and Mariah’s Revenge today! You will not be disappointed. But I must add a warning – if you begin reading these books be prepared to forget dinner, housework, laundry and sleep.

When I wrote the first book in 2014 I didn’t plan on having a sequel. After some readers requested more about Mariah I decided to pick up the story where I left off with Mariah’s Revenge. Be prepared to read well into the night. These books will grab you from page one and not let go. They both were Finalists in Authorsdb First Lines Contest for this reason.

The story came to me when my daughter was going into college. I heard about a rape on a college campus which frightened me. I had a dream about this and had to write it down to get it out of my head. It took a lot out of me getting into the mind of the serial killer. Once I completed the book I felt free but then I began book 2, Mariah’s Revenge, in 2018 and he came back to haunt me. Oh, my daughter was safe at college, no more rapes reported, thank goodness. But I made sure to warn her about being careful at night and not walking alone. Mothers never stop worrying, do we?!

I hope you will enjoy this two-book series and if you can please leave a review. Reviews are the best way to spread word about books you enjoy. Thank you so much!
