Looking for an Unputdownable Novel to read?

The first novel I wrote was Hunting Mariah in 2014. Since then I have written several more. When a few readers requested a sequel for Mariah, I wrote and published Mariah’s Revenge in 2018. This two-book series has been reviewed as ‘unputdownable.’

An insane killer, obsessed with blood and death, seeks revenge with those he perceives wronged him. He is now on the loose. His next victim may be Mariah.

Mariah has lost her memory. Will she remember what has transpired in her past? Can Mariah escape this deadly killer’s grasp. Will she finally be safe? Will the killer be apprehended?

Writing this two-book series was exhausting mentally delving into the mind of the serial killer. I never thought I would write the second book since the killer would be with me once again in my dreams to disrupt my sleep to tell his story. It was an eery feeling! I was relieved when I finished it never to return again. I don’t think I can read it again myself since the killer will invade my sleep once again! Yikes!

I think this can happen when you deal with a thriller/suspense/crime/mystery novel. There are so many facets to the story that you must think about while the characters try to push you one way or another.

This book begins where the first book, Hunting Mariah, left off. This suspense/thriller/crime novel will keep you turning pages as the tension grows. There will be twists and turns and some surprises. Many of the same characters will be in play to give support and encouragement to Mariah along the way.
A new man comes into Mariah’s life that reminds her of someone she wants to forget. He threatens to bring back the horrors that she and her family once endured. While the one she wants to forget suffers from a horrendous attack that puts his life in jeopardy.
Mariah must draw on her strength and resilience to survive danger at every turn. How much more can Mariah endure? How far will Mariah go to protect her family?

Here are book trailers for each book.

Here are some reviews from Amazon using AllAuthor promos.

I love to begin my novels with a bang and these two books will give you that and more. If you haven’t delved into the mind of the serial killer, I dare you to check out this series today. I promise you that you will lose some sleep until you finish them both. Hold on tight for a wild ride! Happy reading!

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Please come back again soon! You are always welcome!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
