An ordinary life. An extra-ordinary vendetta.

From the outside Lauren’s life looks idyllic, yet beneath the surface there are cracks in her marriage.

When an old schoolfriend returns home, Lauren doesn’t know whether to avoid her or befriend her. Her husband thinks she should give Bettina a chance; her best friend thinks she has a hidden agenda. A sexy schoolteacher proves an unlikely ally, even if he is an extra threat to her marriage.

Slowly Lauren’s life begins to unravel: a car crash and poison-pen letters are just the beginning.

Someone is out to ruin her. But who?

Can her joy of life withstand a killer’s joy of death?

 


A woman of plain living, Gwen Orangegrave would rather balance budgets all day than enjoy life. Maybe you can’t help being a killjoy, when you work for the biggest mob in Boston and you’re married to the boss, a man even stricter than you.

Corbin Locke, the mob’s man in Congress, shows Gwen a new life and reignites old feelings—until he throws her over and cheats the mob all in one day. To get their revenge on him, the mob hires only the best: a nameless hitman so young and cheerful, you’d never know he’s the master of faking suicides.

As the woman scorned, Gwen goes along at first. But when doubts come, she seeks another solution. Risking the wrath of both mob and assassin, her search will confront her with what she lost in the past, and who she might save in the future. She must fight for a man’s life—and perhaps hers, too—while evading the grim reapers who roam Boston.

Little does Gwen know how deep her quest will take her into the hitman’s world of dark magic. Killjoy or not, can she prove any match for the best killer in the world?

If you like The Twilight Zone and the intelligent thrillers of Graham Greene, Ruth Rendell, Barbara Vine, and Patricia Highsmith, get Killjoy and find out!

#BlogTour “The Step-sister” by Jenny O’Brien

tour banner

~~~

When a stranger leaves step-sisters, Victoria and Ness, a half-share in a house in Holland, they think it must be a mistake.

But there’s no mistake when Ness goes missing.

Desperate for the truth, Victoria heads to Holland to find out what happened to her. Has she, as her texts show, embarked on a whirlwind romance? Has someone abducted her or even worse?

But there’s someone watching, and that person wants her dead.

Can Victoria find out the truth before it’s too late?

 

EXCERPT

Something is different, if there haven’t been more than enough changes to contend with already. It’s still dark and warm but now, instead of a woolly blanket, I’m wrapped in duvet and dog, as Nigel shifts to snort in my ear.

Just like before, I examine my surroundings without moving a muscle, just in case. Just in case he’s still in the room, although my ears tell me differently. It’s quiet, too quiet for guests and the only sound is my pulse as it throbs in my ears.

I’m lying stretched out on a bed, a bed topped with the softest mattress and the smoothest of sheets. This is no cheap student flat as I sink my head further into the pillow, aware of a slight pull on my scalp. But there’s no pain, just the awareness that something isn’t quite right. I let my muscles relax, concentrating on easing the sudden tension that threatens to overwhelm everything. I have to think this through, all of it and I have to do it before he comes back into the room.

There’s no sign of the nausea and dizziness of earlier. Nevertheless, I take a few deep breaths before shifting back against the pillows. I don’t know who he is. I suspect that he may be this Manus van der Hooke person. But, in truth, that’s only a guess, a guess based on a couple of unsubstantiated texts from the most unreliable of sources, my stepsister. Who’s to say he isn’t just an innocent bystander who’s stumbled into the middle of the most bizarre of situations? But if that’s the case, what was he doing in my house? And with the staircase all but demolished, how the hell did he manage to get into the basement?

My head’s starting to ache. Now all I can think about is when I last had a drink. There was that coffee, hours ago, which I never got to finish and all that delicious wine, which I never got to start.
