REVIEW:TEXAS RANGER BY JAMES PATTERSON AND ANDREW BOURELLE

37486542

Texas Ranger

James Patterson, Andrew Bourelle

Holy cow people!! TEXAS RANGER blew my mind, totally screwed with my head, and then blew my mind once again! It was that good! All while I was reading, I totally had it figured out only to be wrong over and over again! I love when an author keeps me guessing. I know many people don’t read James Patterson anymore but I truly think they are missing out! I know they think he turns out too many books in a year but he always keeps me highly entertained and TEXAS RANGER was no exception!

TEXAS RANGER goes back and forth between the past and the present. It’s the story of Rory Yates who is a Texas Ranger. He receives a phone call from his ex wife, Anne, telling him she is getting very nasty phones calls, threatening harm, and is freaked out by them. Rory races to her house, a house they used to share but he is hours away. He tries to keep her on the phone until he gets there, but when he does, he is too late! Anne is dead and he is a suspect! Hold on tight people, the ride is a bumpy and crazy one!

Not long after this all goes down, his old friend, Patty, is also killed! Anne and Patty are dead and the detective investigating their murders thinks Rory did it. Rory thinks it was Anne’s ex, Cal, whom Rory has never liked. The whole town thinks Cal is an all right guy except for Rory. Rory wants answers and wants them now. Even though the detective tells him to stay away, he can’t. The love of his life was killed and he is determined to prove it was Cal who did it. Does a story get any better than this?

The twists and turns in TEXAS RANGER are going to keep you up late into the night trying to figure it out. One minute you believe you know who did it and the next you are sitting there shaking your head, wondering what the heck just happened. I had my suspicions, I had it all figured out, or so I thought, and BAM…….wrong again! Once you start reading, trust me, you aren’t going to be able to stop! When everything is finally revealed, well, you won’t believe it! I really hope James Patterson writes with Andrew Bourelle again. I would love to meet up with all the characters of Redbud, Texas once again!

FROM GOODREADS:

In his bid for justice, a courageous law-man aims dead center when he is called home to settle deadly scores.

Across the ranchlands and cities of his home state, Rory Yates’s discipline and law-enforcement skills have carried him far-from local highway patrolman to the honorable rank of Texas Ranger. A tough case in Waco has jeopardized Yates’s chances at promotion, and he decides to take time off to recharge with his family in their small-town hometown, Redbud. He arrives and finds a horrifying crime scene-and a scathing accusation: He is named a suspect in the murder of his ex-wife, Anne, a devoted teacher whose only controversial act ever was deciding to end her marriage to a Ranger.

At Anne’s funeral, Yates moves the congregation to tears with a beloved hymn. Anne’s new husband, Calvin Richards, is there, and Yates has questions that no one else seems to be asking. The investigation is out of his jurisdiction-plus he is a chief suspect-but Rory’s drive to learn what happened isn’t about self-preservation. For himself, for Anne, his hunt for justice transcends all boundaries.

When the killer strikes again, Rory’s urgent search bursts across state borders onto the national scene. He risks his badge, his pride, his reputation among everyone he loves, and even the trust of the woman he’s recently begun seeing, to pursue the only thing that matters. Yates follows the Ranger creed-never to surrender-into the inferno of the most twisted and violent minds he’s ever encountered. That code just might bring him out alive.

 

Have a beautiful day and thanks for reading!💕

REVIEW: IN HER BONES BY KATE MORETTI

cover139214-medium

 

In Her Bones

Kate Moretti

IN HER BONES is the first book I’ve ever read by Kate Moretti. The twists and turns keep coming and I had to know how it was going to end! Every time I thought I knew where this story was going, a few pages later, Kate Moretti threw me for a loop and I knew I was wrong! Murderers don’t just destroy the families of their victims they also destroy their own.

Edie Beckett is the daughter of Lilith Wade who, fifteen years ago, murdered six women. They were the wives of the men Lilith had affairs with. Edie has become obsessed with her mother’s victims families. She gets very close to one of the family members, spends the night with him and then he turns up murdered. The killing is very much like the killings her mother committed. What a crazy premise right? IN HER BONES is a crazy and wild roller coaster ride that turns your thinking upside down!

Edie is a hot mess! She is trying to stay sober, but falls off the wagon and now finds herself wondering if she killed this man in a drunken haze……is she her mother’s daughter in more ways than one? IN HER BONES is very easy to follow and I really enjoyed Kate’s writing. The story does drag just a bit, but overall, I really enjoyed it. The plot of IN HER BONES is excellent but also crazy. I was instantly pulled in to the story and couldn’t wait to see how it ended.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Atria Books through Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

 

Praise for IN HER BONES:

 

“Kate Moretti is incredibly talented! IN HER BONES is at once chilling and compelling, frightening and insightful—and truly madly deeply satisfying. You’ll gasp at every twist, and turn these hauntingly sinister pages as fast as you can.”

—Hank Phillippi Ryan, nationally bestselling author of Trust Me

“Sensational; a stunning psychological thriller that kept me riveted from the first page to the last. A dark and compelling exploration of what it’s like to grow up with someone who just may be the worst mother in the world, Moretti’s chilling and insightful novel answers the question: If your mother is a serial killer and you’re obsessed with her victims, what does that make you?”

—Karen Dionne, internationally bestselling author of The Marsh King’s Daughter

“Suspense at its best: A chilling voice, an unlikely heroine, a haunting story. IN HER BONES is Kate Moretti at the top of her game.”

—Jessica Strawser, author of Not That I Could Tell

“Kate Moretti’s IN HER BONES is a suspenseful, whirling spiral of mysteries within mysteries, plot twists you won’t see coming, and characters linked by deadly fates that stretch across the years. Moretti’s prose is crisp and masterful, her people rich and real. Don’t miss this haunting, wild thrill ride.”

—David Bell, author of Somebody’s Daughter

“We dove head-first into In Her Bones, its riveting twists and turns keeping us up well past our bedtime. Moretti has meticulously crafted this gripping mystery, which begs the question: Is it possible to escape our own fate? Another stellar contribution to the suspense genre.”

—Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke, authors of The Good Widow

About IN HER BONES:

 

Fifteen years ago, Lilith Wade was arrested for the brutal murder of six women. After a death row conviction, media frenzy, and the release of an unauthorized biography, her thirty-year-old daughter Edie Beckett is just trying to survive out of the spotlight. She’s a recovering alcoholic with a dead-end city job and an unhealthy codependent relationship with her brother. Edie also has a disturbing secret: a growing obsession with the families of Lilith’s victims. She’s desperate to see how they’ve managed—or failed—to move on. While her escalating fixation is a problem, she’s careful to keep her distance. That is, until she crosses a line and a man is found murdered. Edie quickly becomes the prime suspect—and while she can’t remember everything that happened the night of the murder, she’d surely remember killing someone. With the detective who arrested her mother hot on her trail, Edie goes into hiding. She’s must get to the truth of what happened that night before the police—or the real killer—find her. Unless, of course, she has more in common with her mother than she’s willing to admit…

Perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, IN HER BONES features Moretti’s “riveting and insightful” (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author) prose and “chillingly satisfying” (Publishers Weekly) twists, and will leave you questioning the nature of guilt, obsession, and the toxicity of familial ties.

FROM GOODREADS:

Emily Lonergan’s best friend died last year.

And Emily hasn’t stopped grieving. Lizzie Porter was lively, loud, and fun — Emily’s better half. Emily can’t accept that she’s gone.

When Lizzie’s parents and her sister come back to town to visit, Emily’s heartened to see them. The Porters understand her pain. They miss Lizzie desperately, too.

Desperately enough to do something crazy.

Something unthinkable.

Suddenly, Emily’s life is hurtling toward a very dark place — and she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to return to what she once knew was real.

From New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice comes a breathless, unputdownable story of suspense, secrets — and the strength that love gives us to survive even the most shocking of circumstances.

Lighthouses have long been the symbol of salvation, warning sailors away from dangerous rocks and shallow waters.
Along the Great Lakes, America’s inland seas, lighthouses played a vital role in the growth of the nation. They shepherded settlers traveling by water to places that had no roads. These beacons of light required constant tending even in remote and often dangerous places. Brave men and women battled the elements and loneliness to keep the lights shining. Their sacrifice kept goods and immigrants moving. Seven romances set between 1883 and 1911 bring hope to these lonely keepers and love to weary hearts.

Anna’s Tower by Pegg Thomas
1883—Thunder Bay Island Lighthouse
Anna Wilson’s plan to be the next lighthouse keeper is endangered when Maksim Ivanov is shipwrecked on Thunder Bay Island. Handsome and capable, he could steal her dream. Or provide a new one.

Beneath a Michigan Moon by Candice Sue Patterson
1885—New Presque Isle Lighthouse
Ava Ryan’s father has passed, leaving her alone, and ill, to tend the light with nowhere else to go. Logging foreman Benjamin Colfax needs the height of the lighthouse to determine the best cutting route, but he senses something amiss in Ava and her determination to remain reclusive. Can he get her to open up, or will she keep herself locked away?

Safe Haven by Rebecca Jepson
1892—Old Mission Point Lighthouse
Rose Miller was found on the lighthouse doorstep as an infant, and now she must hide her quest to find the child who left her there from Captain Nathan Perry, the man she loves to hate.

Love’s Beacon by Carrie Fancett Pagels
1898—Round Island Lighthouse
Valerie Fillman’s best hope for a future lies on the tiny island that holds her worst memories. Can Paul Sholtus, the new lightkeeper, and his daughter help bring healing? And love?

The Last Memory by Kathleen Rouser
1899—Mackinac Point Lighthouse
Natalie Brooks loses her past to amnesia, and Cal Waterson, the lighthouse keeper who rescues her, didn’t bargain on risking his heart—when her past might change everything.

The Disappearing Ship by Lena Nelson Dooley
1902—Whitefish Point Lighthouse
Romance and mystery collide at Whitefish Point Lighthouse when unemployed doctor Norma Kimbell and Drake Logan, owner of a steamship line, search for evidence of a supposed shipwreck.

The Wrong Survivor by Marilyn Turk
1911—Au Sable Lighthouse
Lydia Palmer’s dream for happiness as a lighthouse keeper’s wife shatters when her fiancé Nathan Drake drowned in a shipwreck, but his brother Jesse survived.

Christmas carols played softly in the background. The scent of spiced cider perfumed the air. Shoppers munched happily on gingerbread cookies and perused the bookshelves for that perfect gift. Dr. Jenna Stockton imagined ripping the halo off the angel’s head and choking her with it.
