Halloween is Murder review blitz


Title: Halloween is Murder
Author: Carolyn Arnold
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Beware of all that goes bump in the night…
Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they’ve set up as a Halloween charity fund-raiser, but things take a ghoulish turn when the reporter covering their story is found dead. With the media keeping mum about how she died, Sara’s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation through their PI firm.
But this case is not without its challenges. The police are actively investigating it, as well, and it’s not even clear that the woman was murdered. It will take a little cloak-and-dagger, dress-up, and finesse for the McKinley’s to get to the bottom of it, but they aren’t the kind to give up.
As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter’s closet, they unearth a few suspects, but they’ll need to carve out the whole truth if they’re going to find her killer. If they do so fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.

Sean and Sarah. They run a successful private investigation company and donate the money they make to charity. Sweet people. And now they have opened a haunted house also with the intentions of donating any proceeds to charity. Naturally, the media is covering this amazingly generous couple. On the day their story is to air there is an unexpected turn. The news girl is found dead in her apartment. Everything points to natural causes, but Sarah has a gut feeling it was not. After her sister pleads for them to take the case they are digging for the truth of the cause of her death. Was it really murder?
I don’t read many cozy mysteries, but this one was great! The writing was good, and the dialog natural. The story flowed well and the ending remained a surprise till the end. I really enjoyed the main characters. They were sweet without being overly sappy. I love when characters are likeable. I give Halloween is murder 4 stars!

Chapter 8
STUCK BETWEEN A GRAVE AND A TOMBSTONE
SARA’S HEART RATE TICKED UP a few notches at Marie’s assured conclusion that someone had killed Chloe. She could feel Sean staring at her, but she refused to look at him. She knew that his eyes would be telling her not to get attached to investigating this case. Besides, he had said they could look into Chloe’s death more, which hadn’t been a commitment, she knew, but she’d taken it as his word. Even a little investigating was a step in the direction she wanted to go. And just because she had a gut feeling about Chloe’s death didn’t mean she’d lost all objectivity.
“Why do you think someone killed her?” Sara asked.
“It’s just… None of this feels right.” Marie picked at her purse strap, its fabric frayed and threads poking out. Probably a nervous habit of hers.
Sara gave Marie the once-over. For someone who lived in a nice neighborhood, Marie’s clothing and accessories didn’t speak of wealth. It also didn’t seem Chloe’s sense of style was a trait her sister shared.
“And why doesn’t it feel right?” Sean, a skeptic if ever there was one, pressed.
Sara looked over at him. It didn’t seem to matter how long they worked together; he would never fully cave to the weight she put on intuition.
So much for rubbing off on the people you spend the most time with…
“The police talked to me at length,” Marie said, “but they didn’t ask the types of questions I would have expected if they were treating it as a murder.”
“Like what?” Sara asked.
“I thought they would have asked who would have had reason to kill her, for one.”
“We spoke with Jackson—” Sean started.
“Yes, I know,” Marie cut in. “That’s how I got your information.”
“Then you know that he was held for questioning.”
Marie nodded. “I do, but he didn’t think they grilled him very hard, either.”
There was only so much law enforcement could do without cause. Still, they could have held Jackson for longer than the time it had taken them to question him. By law, they had up to twenty-four hours to hold him without filing a formal charge.
“And Chloe’s health was excellent. We have no history of disease or people just—” Marie averted her eyes “—dropping dead in our family. Our grandparents lived into their eighties on both sides. Now, our parents are both dead, but they were in a car accident.” She added the latter part quickly.
“Do you have any other siblings?” Sara asked, though she only remembered reading that Chloe had a sister.
Marie shook her head. “It was just…” She cupped the sides of her face and pinched her eyes shut. Tears squeezed out from the corners, falling down her cheeks without apology.
A knot balled in Sara’s chest, and she took a shallow breath. She was getting too caught up emotionally—again. And taking on the grief of others wasn’t healthy. At least so far with this case, she’d managed to stuff the feelings deep down inside. But she’d be lying if she said she didn’t fear that one day they’d bubble to the surface all at once.

TS901 by Stacey Rourke and Tish Thawer


Title: TS901: ANOMALY
Author: Stacey Rourke & Tish Thawer
Genre: NA Dystopian
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba at Mae I Design & Photography
Editor: There for You Editing Services
Publisher: Anchor Group Publishing
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb: Tainted water for the good of the people. Fluoride and vitamins to sustain the health of the human race. Added ingredients to extend and elevate the quality of life. All good things, right?
Wrong.
Thia Kelly has been changed by the TS901 chemical in the world’s water supply. Now, forced into hiding with the other inflicted outcasts, she struggles to survive as her powers emerge.
Evan Daniels hunted for others like himself, and finding Thia suddenly brought meaning back into his life. Love blossomed between the strange couple while they searched for a way to reverse the effects. Unfortunately, the Government had something else in mind.
Super-soldier creation on a mass scale was their end goal, and thanks to an unfortunate family tie, Evan became Patient #1.
Good-guy? Bad-guy? The world isn’t sure, but Thia is left with only one choice––save the ass of the world’s first Anomaly who just happens to be her boyfriend.

My Review:
When TS901 was released into the water supply, it was supposed to be good for humanity. But it caused mutations that were very unexpected. Some are physical and some are hidden, but all are feared.
The abnormal humans live together in a closely guarded compound away from their families and loved ones. As the hunt for patient zero is broadcasted, Thia knows the truth. That he is already a captive and being used for experimentation. So Thia rounds up a group of her powerful friends and they set off to rescue her Evan.
TS901 is an exciting ride! The action and danger make for a great story and keep the pages turning quickly. Thia's group of abnormals were mind blowing, and Thia’s secret is spectacular!
If you are a fan of sci-fi or action/adventure novels, you will love TS901.
I give it 4 stars!
