Book Tour for Descending: A Gina Harwood Novel (GHS #2)

The Gina Harwood  series caught my attention when it was compared to the X-Files, of which I’m a huge fan. It centers around homicide detectives Gina Harwood and Morgan Snyder who investigate supernatural mysteries and crimes. Descending, the second installment, has recently been released, and the first chapter of the book is available for you to read. I’ve also included information on the first book in the series, Behind the Veil, which introduces readers to this fictitious world where police procedure and the paranormal intersect.

Reviews of Lie Still & Playing Dead by Julia Heaberlin

I recently discovered Julia Heaberlin when my local book club selected to read and discuss Lie Still, and I enjoyed the book so much, I also read her debut novel, Playing Dead as well, which received high praise from all of the members of my book club.

Both novels appealed to me because they are set in North Texas, where I live, and Heaberlin does a great job of emphasizing the regional characteristics of this area, its locale, expressions, food, and the overall idiosyncrasies that distinguish Texas from anywhere else.  Although Heaberlin may be considered a regional writer, the themes of her novels are certainly universal, transcending geographical limitations.

Although the storylines in both novels are very different, Heaberlin is consistent in weaving together complex, twisty-turny mysteries that will keep you guessing right up until the end.

I recommend both books for readers who enjoy psychological thrillers and are rich in local flavor.

Purchase from Amazon: Lie Still: A Novel

In the tradition of Lisa Unger’s Beautiful Lies and Nancy Pickard’s The Scent of Rain and Lightning comes a twisting, riveting novel of shifting trust and shattered lives. Lie Still delves deep into the heart of an opulent Southern town, where gossip is currency and secrets kill.

When Emily Page and her husband move from Manhattan to the wealthy enclave of Clairmont, Texas, she hopes she can finally escape her haunted past—and outrun the nameless stalker who has been taunting her for years. Pregnant with her first child, Emily just wants to start over. But as she is drawn into a nest of secretive Texas women—and into the unnerving company of their queen, Caroline Warwick—Emily finds that acceptance is a very dangerous game.
 
It isn’t long before Caroline mysteriously disappears and Emily is facing a rash of anonymous threats. Are they linked to the missing Caroline? Or to Emily’s terrifying encounter in college, years earlier? As the dark truth about Caroline emerges, Emily realizes that some secrets are impossible to hide—and that whoever came for Caroline is now coming for her.
