It was a disaster beyond most people’s comprehension.
There was nothing left standing of the barn, it had burned completely to the ground. Among the rubble and smoking wood, you could see the smoking corpses – which had once been some of the finest thoroughbred stallions in the Tennessee and Kentucky area.
Unnoticed, among these ruins, were the burned remains of Aaron Nunamaker, owner of ‘Nunamaker Stables,’ and one of the best-known horse breeders and stud farm owners in West Tennessee.
Killing a human being brings the wrath of the law and the accompanying sorrow and grief from loved ones. Killing a helpless animal brings wrath that is unequaled to that associated with killing a person. This sorrow and grief continue long after the grief over human loss has left. Mankind will forget their own losses, but they never forget similar betrayals to animals. Odd isn’t it?
The fire had, obviously, been set and was a deliberate murder of innocent animals-horses. Horses that could not free themselves from their comfortable stable, horses that trusted their caregiver and felt safe in their home. Horses that died a terrible death, and horses that would never know how they became involved in such a terrible scheme and plan.
Tracks revealed that many of the doomed horses had been led from another barn to the one that was burned. This made it more than an act of revenge or rage, but one intended to destroy the animals, all at once, and all at one time.
Other than car and horse tracks, the clues were minimal or non-existent. Police roped off the area and considered it an accident or a rival/revenge act until they found the body. Then things changed.
He had been shot once at close range with a high powered rifle. The bullet entered his center chest and exited to some unknown parts of the barn or maybe the surrounding ground. His body was burned beyond normal recognition, like the horses, but his engraved Horseshoe ring, which he always wore proudly on his right-hand ring finger, made preliminary identification possible.

This is the first I’ve read of the Carson Reno series. It’s a fun, easy mystery with a lovable character, Carson Reno, who carries you through the story like he’s your best friend. You will come away feeling like you sat at Chief’s with him and had a hamburger while he told his tale. Enjoyed this book!

Morcant and Blake Korrigan own a little shop of horrors, where witches congregate and people ending up dead isn’t rare. When Karen Hiltzman joins their coven, she has no idea what she’s getting into. Drawn in, the group convinces her to recruit her best friend, Sarah Matthews, after discovering that she bears a very special birthmark; one that indicates she’s the girl they’ve been waiting for.
Eager to reincarnate a witch put to death by an angry mob five hundred years prior, Morcant unleashes a spell; a dark and sinister curse. His ritual transforms Sarah’s body and will bring the dreaded Brenna back to life when it’s completed. Blake wants to stop him; but will he be strong enough to defeat his elder sibling, and if he does… will he be able to let her go when it’s done?

Original, plenty of twists and turns.
By UsedtobeCrankyTop Contributor: Fantasy Books
Samantha Jacobey’s, The Wicked Awakened, is a perfect Halloween read.
Sarah and her childhood best friend, Karen, are off to college. Unlike Karen, Sarah is a dedicated student. Karen has other interests.
I loved the depiction of the two childhood friends and their relationship. I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying the complex ties that bonds friends and how it can mask competing impulses.
In high school, both girls shared an interest in witchcraft. Karen’s ties went deeper than Sarah knew.
Karen is involved with a dangerous coven, who are interested in recruiting Sarah.
Things go bump in the night, creative and original twists. Stories involving the occult. Some of the twists and turns, I didn’t see coming.

Hold on for an intense ride.
This book grabbed my attention from the first page and time flew by until I reached the final page (so sad that I have to wait DAYS for the next book). I loved the pace of the writing, the detailed (but not too much detail) military terms and the character development. I did not read anything about the book, so I was expecting your typical military romance. It was so much more. I love the sci-fi elements and the depth of the experiences of the characters. I am sad that it ended on a cliffhanger so if you hate those, wait to start until the 2nd book comes out on the 31st. I highly recommend if you are open to reading darker content, but not so much drama to bring you down. It is not for the faint of heart.

All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
The year is 1962 and this small west Tennessee town has been turned upside down by a labor strike at its main manufacturing plant. It seems that, as result of the strike, some very serious underworld crime problems have surfaced in Humboldt. A small town sheriff and small town Chief of Police have their hands full dealing with the strike – when the worst happens – one of the principal figures surrounding the labor problems is murdered.
Carson Reno is very familiar with Humboldt – after all, he grew up and went to high school there. But Carson has a successful private investigation business in Memphis and no desire or reason to get involved. However, circumstances pull him into the turmoil and a situation that grows more dangerous everyday. By trying to not become involved, he becomes deeply involved and ultimately the prime suspect for the Murder in Humboldt.

By Mathiya Adams.
I really enjoyed the way Darnell handled the period structure of the story. He introduced enough examples of contemporary sights, events, and cultural facts to make the reader feel that she was back there in the time and place he presented. I look forward to the next book in the Carson Reno series.

All Carson Reno, Mystery Series Books, are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
An ex-Memphis cop and a friend of Carson is in trouble – but what kind of trouble?
While trying to answer that question, Carson finds more questions – and all with no answers.
What Carson also finds is trouble coming from all directions. The Mafia, the Teamsters Union, an unhappy sheriff and some very rough characters are all looking for his friend, and Carson is in the middle of this mess.
An apparently senseless murder only complicates Carson’s problems, which makes getting to the truth more difficult.

A Fresh YA Mystery!

Carson is in the middle of all kinds of trouble as he grapples with a senseless murder.

This is the first Gerald Darnell book I have ever read. With the kiddies out of school for the summer, I have been looking for creative YA books and this definitely made the list.

Reelfoot would appeal to mystery fans and probably any young adult who burns through Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys!

WOW!!! Not What I Expected!
By Karen Smedley
Not what I expected from a military storyline. Love my military stories, BUT this storyline just blew me away!!! Loved this sci-fi mixed in with present-day events, action-packed, emotional and loving. This is a MUST read. Off now to continue this exciting story with book 2 “Knight of Destruction.”

I’m pleasantly surprised how good this was
Eve of Destruction wasn’t my usual genre that I read, but I have to say I was surprised how good this book was. I’ve already purchased the next book in anticipation that I’ll love it as well.
Katica was raised as an Army/ brat, and now after a bad relationship, she’s entered Air Force boot camp. You’ll be given an inside view of how boot camp is but when her TI (Training Instructor) approaches her on a night out with friends Wyatt will tell her of his feeling about her even though she knows it against the rules.
What follows is a sweet love story between them until she arrives at her new base and she’s assaulted in Okinawa by her CO which leads to the loss of their baby. But when there’s an explosion at work that causes her severe injuries. But when she wakes up as a cyborg in a lab with no memories of her past life that will take some major adjustment from being more machine than human. She’ll have to adjust quickly with the help of Dr. Marda who’ll turn her into a lean, mean fighting cyborg soldier that some in her unit are uncomfortable with. When the doctor gives her chips with her information that hopefully let her find Wyatt again.
I can’t wait to read the next book with more information on if they can both find each other again.
