Thriller Suspense Book Recommendations & Giveaway

There are so many great-looking thriller suspense books coming out right now it's hard to stay focused on things like, well, work. If only we could read books all day and night...wouldn't that be great?

I've got some great thriller and mystery book recommendations for you. Before we get into that though, I wanted to share about a book giveaway I'm running until Friday, April 30, 2021.

Match, by Amy S. Peele, is the second in a new series and comes out on April 13th. Here's a short blurb about it:


Politics, kidney transplants, and the opioid crisis. What do these all have in common?

Best friends Sarah and Jackie are about to find out. While Jackie deals with a troubled marriage and waits to find a kidney donor for her young son, Sarah works to expedite the transplant.

But when a despised colleague at the hospital dies from an opiate overdose--despite never having used drugs--the women become involved in a mystery…and life and death adventure.


I was happy to have been contacted recently and offered an autographed copy of Amy's book to give to readers. But wait, there's more! One lucky reader will receive an autographed copy of both Match, and the first-in-series, Cut.

To enter, simply get in touch with me via email or and let me know. The lucky winner will be chosen at random on April 30th at noon and notified via my next newsletter.

Home Before Dark, by Riley Sager

I was excited recently to get my hands on Riley Sager's newest suspense novel, Home Before Dark. Set in a creepy, dark mansion tucked into a rural part of Vermont (!), it was full of fun twists and turns. Though the ending disappointed me, everything else about the book was great and worth the read.

The storyline: Maggie Holt returns to the home where she and her family lived for a short time during her childhood. Horrific things happened there that no one wants to talk about...except her father who wrote a dark and disturbing book about it. Maggie has always discounted it as mere fiction. But when she inherits the house and moves in temporarily to make renovations, she begins to wonder if her father was telling the truth all along.

The Girl From Widow Hills, by Megan Miranda

The Girl from Widow Hills, by Megan Miranda, was another recent read for me. In this novel, Olivia has started over with a new identity in a new town. After a terrifying experience being swept away in a storm as a child--and found in a drainpipe three days later--Olivia only wants to live a quiet life out of the limelight.

But when one of the men who saved her is found murdered in her yard, Olivia realizes that her dream will never become reality. What other secrets from her past will come to light?

Writing Updates

In my own thriller writing world, I'm doing a second edit on the next (and probably last in the Monsters in the Green Mountains series) which is due out in the fall of 2021. I'm also working on something new...but nothing to report yet.

Thanks so much to all the readers and wonderfully supportive people who attended my book signing for The Pact at The Eloquent Page book store. It was a lovely treat and nice to chat with so many book lovers after so many months of isolation. Here's a picture a friend snapped of me:

Hope you're having a wonderful start to your spring. Have a thriller or suspense book recommendation, question, or feedback on something I've shared today? Please leave a comment.
