New York Times bestseller Brenda Novak’s Evelyn Talbot series returns, with a heavily pregnant Evelyn being held hostage.



With Jasper Moore, the privileged boy who attacked her when she was only sixteen, finally caught and in prison, Dr. Evelyn Talbot, founder and head psychiatrist at Hanover House (a prison/research facility for psychopaths in remote Alaska), believes she can finally quit looking over her shoulder. She’s safe, happier than she’s ever been and expecting her first child. She’s also planning to marry Amarok, her Alaska State Trooper love interest and the town’s only police presence. But before the wedding can take place, a psychopath from the much more recent past comes out of nowhere and kidnaps her in broad daylight. Instead of planning her wedding, Evelyn finds herself doing everything she can to survive, save her baby and devise some way to escape while Amarok races the clock to find her – before it’s too late.

Dr. Evelyn Talbot has worked long and hard to establish Hanover House, a one-of-a-kind prison and mental health research facility. Initially, the inhabitants of Hilltop, Alaska were opposed to bringing a bunch of psychopaths to their town and it didn’t matter that they would be locked up in a secure facility. But the facility was built despite the N-I-M-B-Y attitude, and despite a rocky start and several area murders, the facility and the workers became accepted, especially Evelyn Talbot after she began a relationship with Alaskan Trooper Benjamin “Amarok” Murphy. Amarok is well-loved and respected in Hilltop and that love and respect gradually transferred over to Evelyn. Now that they’re engaged and expecting their first child, the residents of Hilltop are just as anxious about the nuptials and expectant delivery as the waiting couple/parents-to-be. Then Evelyn disappears. Amarok finds that she’s been abducted from their doorstep. His first suspicion is that Evelyn’s old nemesis, Jasper Moore, must have escaped from Hanover House but he’s still safely behind bars. He then checks on the one other person he presumes might have a motive to kidnap Evelyn, but this person suffered a massive brain trauma and other physical injuries is still hospitalized in the lower 48. Evelyn’s pregnancy is high risk given her age and the injuries she sustained from her teenage dealings with Jasper. Amarok has no clues on who took Evelyn or where she might be? How can he find her in time? Will he be able to find her in time?

I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing Hanover House a few years ago, so of course I had to reread it along with Her Darkest Nightmare, Hello Again, and Face Off before I read Blind Spot to refamiliarize myself with Evelyn, Amarok, and Hanover House. I found Blind Spot to be a fast-paced and engaging read but also slightly different from the previous books in this series. Although there is murder, intrigue, and even mayhem, this book didn’t seem as dark as the others. Both Amarok and Evelyn remain hopeful and optimistic throughout this ordeal, primarily because of Evelyn’s pregnancy but also because of their love, faith, and trust in one another. Having said that, we are also exposed to a side of Amarok we’ve never seen before. This is an emotionally distraught Amarok and one living on the edge, giving up sleep, and willing to do whatever he can to find his loved ones. Blind Spot is an interesting romantic-suspense read because the romance is one-step removed. Throughout most of the story, Evelyn and Amarok don’t see one another and can’t talk to one another, but their love sustains each other. When others have given up hope about finding Evelyn, Amarok keeps going, and  Evelyn knows throughout all of her trials and indignities that Amarok will find her no matter what. If you’ve read the previous books in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles, then I strongly encourage you to grab a copy of Blind Spot to read. For those of you that enjoy suspense thrillers with a touch of romance, then I encourage you to start with Hanover House and read through to Blind Spot. I sincerely hope this isn’t the end of the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles because I want to know what happens next (trust me, that will make sense after you read Blind Spot). For now, I guess I’ll just set these books aside and simply reread them in a few months.

Welcome to Hanover House….

Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the psychopathic mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them?

After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst.

But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries.

He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong…



Evelyn Talbot suffered unspeakable horrors at the hands of her teenage boyfriend twenty years ago. Now she spends her time trying to understand the evil that lurks in the minds of psychopaths. Fighting for funding and a location for a new type of research facility, she’s awaiting completion of Hanover House in Hilltop, Alaska. Just when it looks like things are going to go forward as planned, vandals strike Hanover House and Evelyn is attacked by an inmate in California. If that’s not bad enough, Evelyn’s teenage attacker has never been found and he is still obsessed with the “one that got away” in Hanover House by Brenda Novak. 

Hanover House is a fast-paced and quick read with less than 200 pages. Ms. Novak has done a wonderful job of creating characters and a setting for the Hanover House Chronicles series. Hanover House is the prequel novella to the upcoming Hanover House Chronicles series. The first full book in this series, Whiteout, is expected in 2016 from St. Martin’s Press. This prequel has action that takes place in California, Massachusetts, and Alaska. The reader is introduced to Evelyn Talbot, Sergeant Benjamin Murphy aka Sergeant Amarok, Evelyn’s parents, and even Evelyn’s teenage attacker Jasper Moore aka Andy Smith. There’s a lot of tension in the story revolving around Evelyn’s work, her attraction to Amarok, and her inhibitions as a result of her attack as a teenager. There’s additional tension from the residents of Hilltop concerning Hanover House and then there’s the ongoing obsession for Evelyn by Jasper Moore. Obviously there’s a lot more going on, but I don’t want to reveal too much (read the book). I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hanover House and am greatly looking forward to reading Whiteout next year.

2015 Book #269: THE SECRET SISTER by Brenda Novak

The Secret Sister (Fairham Island #1) by Brenda Novak
ISBN: 9780778317807 (paperback)
ISBN: 9781743691694 (ebook)
ASIN: B00S503T50 (Kindle edition)
Publication date: July 28, 2015 
Publisher: MIRA


Did she once have a sister? Has her mother lied all these years? Why? 

After a painful divorce, Maisey Lazarow returns to Fairham, the small island off the North Carolina coast where she grew up. She goes there to heal—and to help her brother, Keith, a deeply troubled man who’s asked her to come home. But she refuses to stay in the family house. The last person she wants to see is the wealthy, controlling mother she escaped years ago. 

Instead, she finds herself living next door to someone else she’d prefer to avoid—Rafe Romero, the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at sixteen. He’s back on the island, and to her surprise, he’s raising a young daughter alone. Maisey’s still attracted to him, but her heart’s too broken to risk… 

Then something even more disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child Keith remembers, too. Maisey believes the girl must’ve been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister. 

Maisey’s convinced that child existed. So where is she now?



Maisey Lazarow never imagined herself return to Fairham, but after the death of her infant daughter, her divorce after ten years of marriage, and her stalled writing career her options are limited. The only thing she’s looking forward to doing is being there for her older brother Keith. Maisey’s return opens up past hurts and then she uncovers a family secret in The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak.

Maisey knows that her family is no one’s definition of normal. Her mother can only be classified as cold. Her mother, Josephine Coldiron Lazarow, has been married multiple times and she feels as if she has the right to control her children’s lives even though they are both in the thirties. Maisey’s mother didn’t approve of her ex-husband and doesn’t approve of her current romantic interest, Rafe Romero. Now that Maisey is attracted to someone and trying to move on, her ex-husband decides to come back into her life and wants to start again. Maisey is also trying to uncover who the little girl is in pictures that have been hidden away for decades. The more she uncovers the more questions are raised. Does she have an older sister? What happened to her? Why won’t anyone discuss her? And the bigger question, is she in love with Rafe?

I found The Secret Sister to be a quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed most of the characters, especially Maisey, Rafe, and Rafe’s daughter Laney. I enjoyed reading about Maisey’s quest to uncover the truth about her sister against impossible odds, including her mother’s decision to kick her out of a family-owned bungalow and firing her from a family-owned business (told you she was cold). Maisey’s brother Keith has mental health issues and is a drug-addict. Needless to say, his erratic behavior adds a lot to the turmoil and drama of the story. The Secret Sister offers romance, tons of family drama, intrigue due to a family secret, and a lot more. If you’ve enjoyed reading anything by Ms. Novak in the past, then you’ll want to read The Secret Sister. If you haven’t read anything by Ms. Novak, then The Secret Sister is a good place to start.

Foreword 
by best-selling author Lee Childs

I’m a thriller writer, and a thriller reader, and hence a sucker for the classic thriller plot, where an ordinary man or an ordinary woman slowly becomes aware of a looming threat: someone or something is out there, close by, infinitely dangerous; or perhaps an intruder is already in the house, mocking, violating a sanctuary, or perhaps – really creepy – he’s been living in the attic for a couple of weeks already, camping out, undetected, silent, leaving odd nighttime disturbances…who moved that chair? 

Or perhaps, for added anguish, it’s not the ordinary man or woman under threat: it’s his or her son or daughter, their child, their responsibility, the intended victim, a helpless target. What mother or father wouldn’t fight to the death? And they do…400 pages later, an investigation has been conducted, the bad guy has been identified, close scrapes have been survived, and finally the family is sitting together on the bottom stair, stunned but finally safe, as the bad guy is put in the cop car and driven away. The end. 

Diabetes starts like that. But it doesn’t finish like that. 

It’s a mysterious malfunction. No one knows the cause. Researchers suspect an element of genetic susceptibility, and in those susceptible it’s possible the Coxsackie B4 virus kicks things off. Then a tiny balance among the human body’s billion moving parts goes slightly out of whack, and the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans (such an innocent name) inside the pancreas shut down and stop producing insulin, so the body can no longer deal with the kind of sugars we crave. 

The intruder is now in the house. 

Untreated, all kinds of complications will follow. Cardiovascular disease, and stroke, and damage to the eyes, kidneys, and nerves. And more. Including death. All in store, unbelievably, for the ordinary parent’s beautiful and vulnerable child. No one’s fault. Type 1 diabetes is unrelated to lifestyle. Most victims are thin or normal, healthy, well fed, well loved. 

The fight back begins with maintenance. Sometimes diet is enough; more often, insulin must be provided. An endless round begins: testing and injecting, testing and injecting. Most sufferers do OK for a long time, but only OK. Quite apart from the social and organizational burdens of diet and injection, they can feel under the weather a lot of the time. But in thriller terms, we can at least get them barricaded in a safe house, at least temporarily, doors and windows locked, guns drawn, with the bad guy lurking outside in the yard. 

But how do we get the bad guy in the cop car? 

Research is the answer, but it’s fantastically expensive. All around the world, teams of biochemists are working hard, but they have to pay the rent. And eat. Their funding comes from governments and institutions and drug companies – but also from hundreds of thousands of concerned individuals. Many of them are parents of diabetic children, and it’s easy to see why. The primeval instinct that makes a mother or father fight to the death is a powerful one – perhaps the most powerful among our emotional inheritance. But in the case of diabetes it’s frustrated. There’s no identifiable antagonist, no role for a gun or a blade. There’s no bar fight to be had. If only it was that easy. I know of no parent who wouldn’t gladly smash a long-neck bottle and join the fray. But they can’t. Such parents have to channel their natural aggression into a long, patient, endless struggle for progress. They raise awareness and money any way they can. 

This anthology is an example. It will help fund the search for a cure. All good. In fact better than good, because whatever else, there are some great authors and some great stories here to enjoy. So if you buy it, you’ll get some excellent entertainment – but also you might just get the chance to be that mysterious character on page 297 of our notional thriller, who contributes the tiny but vital clue that eventually leads to the big reveal on page 397. Your few cents could make the difference. You could be the one.

Read an excerpt from Wanderlust by Roni Loren 
(Sweet Seduction boxed set)


     When the song finished, Lex sauntered to the edge of the stage to address the audience. “How’s everyone doing tonight?”

     Screams answered him. He gave an easy laugh, clearly comfortable being the center of attention.

     “I’m glad y’all are having a good time. We are, too. New Orleans definitely knows how to throw a party.” He put his hand against his brow to shield his eyes from the spotlights and squinted at the sea of people below him. “Turn up those house lights. I want to see these beautiful faces.”

     Female voices reverberated off the walls as the lights above the crowd switched on. A redhead a few steps away from Aubrey lifted up her shirt as soon as Lex’s eyes traveled in that direction. Nice. What was this? Mardi Gras? Lex smiled and gave a little nod of acknowledgement to boob-job girl, but otherwise didn’t comment.

     “You know, I’m feeling mighty thirsty, and I heard a rumor that New Orleans is home of the body shot,” Lex said, continuing to survey the audience with a sly smile. “So I’m thinking, that maybe I should try one tonight. What do you think?”

     The shouting of the crowd increased.

     “Now all I need is…a willing victim,” Lex continued. Bustier girl began her bouncing routine again and waved her hands frantically trying to catch his eye. Lex paced across the stage, taking his time, holding his finger up and preparing to point to the chosen one.

     Aubrey put her money on Miss Augmentation, but he passed that section up without a glance. As he neared Aubrey’s end of the stage, his eyes landed on her exuberant neighbor. The girl’s scream turned shrill. “Pick me! Me! Me!”

     Lex lowered his hand ready to point and then shifted his gaze, locking eyes with Aubrey. Her breath caught. Oh, shit. Seconds seemed to tick by, but she couldn’t pull away from the stare. She managed to wag her head slowly back and forth. No. No. No. 

     He smiled, lowered his finger, and pointed directly at her. “You. The sexy brunette in the black t-shirt.”

     Her stomach took a nosedive. 

     “Come on, I won’t bite,” Lex said, waving her forward. “Unless you ask nicely, that is.”

     The girl next to Aubrey shot her a glare that could have curdled milk. The sea of fans parted as if she’d suddenly morphed into royalty, and she forced her leaden feet to cross the few yards to the barricade. Her heart took up residence in her throat, threatening to jump out. This was a disaster. She silently cursed the bouncer from backstage. If she had met the band beforehand, she would’ve never ended up in this position. Building a professional relationship with the band after this was going to be next to impossible.

     Hands patted her back and shoulders as the two bouncers flanking the stage helped her climb over the metal barrier. Lex squatted at the edge of the stage, all wicked grin and guyliner, and stuck his hand out. He cocked his head, beckoning her closer in a way that spoke without the words. Come on over, lamb, said the wolf. This will only take a minute.

Book 226: IN CLOSE Review

Imagine that your biological father abandons your family when you are just a toddler. Fortunately your mother remarries and your stepfather adopts you and your younger sister. Then when you are sixteen, your mother vanishes without a trace. If that’s not bad enough, fast forward fifteen years and you are now a widow since your husband was accidentally killed while hunting. This is the life of Claire O’Toole and she has decided to uncover the mystery surrounding her mother’s disappearance in the latest addition to the Bulletproof series by Brenda Novak, In Close.

Claire knows that there is more to her mother’s disappearance than she has been told. She has backed off of investigating or having the disappearance investigated because of the emotional reaction by her younger sister and stepfather. In an effort to feel closer to her artistic mother, she returns to the cabin her mother used for painting. The cabin is in good shape but has become a storage unit for the family’s castoffs. Fortunately Claire discovers a police file that contains unseen documentation and now she has more questions than answers. Unfortunately, there’s someone watching Claire at the cabin and she winds up suffering a concussion. Again, unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), a former lover, Isaac Morgan, lives close by and heard her scream. He comes running and ends up carrying Claire back to his house, Claire’s former family home, before calling the police.

What follows is a series of unfortunate and suspicious events and Claire begins to question her need for answers as well as her sister and stepfather’s insistence to leave everything in the past. Claire refuses to back down and the only ally she has is Isaac. If she continues, she will uncover a variety of small-town secrets that many feel should be kept hidden. Was her mother actually having an affair and did she run away? Were her stepfather and stepmother having an affair and did they have anything to do with her mother’s disappearance? Why was her younger sister taken out of school and subsequently returned on the day their mother disappeared? And finally, was the hunting accident involving her husband truly an accident or something more nefarious?

Claire and Isaac seem to have a love-hate relationship. They speak at cross-purposes and it takes awhile before they realize that their attraction to one another is much more than a physical attraction. Claire’s younger sister Leanne is disabled due to a sledding accident and a selfish spoiled brat. Leanne also feels that Claire is being disloyal to their adoptive father by continuing her investigation. The more answers Claire receives in the course of her investigation the more questions arise. Claire definitely has more invested in obtaining the truth than the police department on this cold case file, and perhaps it is this personal investment that won’t allow her to stop even when her safety is endangered.

In Close is a fast-paced, romantic suspense read. The characters are well-developed and realistic. I enjoyed reading In Close, as I’ve enjoyed reading many of Ms. Novak’s novels. This is a great read for a lazy fall afternoon.

Books 160 and 161 Reviewed

Inside is the first in the Bulletproof trilogy by Brenda Novak. Virgil Skinner has just spent fourteen years inside the prison system for a crime he didn’t commit. Virgil may not have committed the crime he was charged with, murder, but he hasn’t come out of the system an innocent man. Virgil joined a gang for protection while inside and cannot freely leave. Once you’re in a gang you’re in for life . . . or until death. It’s bad enough he has the gang issue hanging over his head, but while inside he protected himself from deadly violence with deadly violence. As a result of these actions he has been “asked” to assist the California Department of Corrections in deterring another gang in the worst prison in the state, Pelican Bay, for a chance at a truly clean slate.


Enter Peyton Adams, the Chief Deputy Warden at Pelican Bay. She is adamantly opposed to Virgil going undercover. She feels that it isn’t possible to protect him from possible gang-related violence and she doesn’t trust him. In a few short days Peyton learns that there is much more to Virgil than meets the eye and she begins to admire and respect him. Virgil only wants to protect his family, his sister and her kids, from possible gang retaliation and maybe get a fresh start in life.


Gangs, prisons and undercover work apparently don’t mix, at least not in a small town. It isn’t possible to keep a secret, especially in a small town where everyone knows everyone else. What ensues is a rush to beat the clock and get the information that CDC wants while protecting Virgil and ensuring he gets what he wants. Throw in some not-so-honest correctional officials, a gang on the hunt for retaliation against Virgil, a family on the run and the suspense gets knocked up a few notches. Inside starts this series off with a bang and makes for a great weekend read.
















In Seconds by Brenda Novak continues with the ongoing saga of Virgil Skinner and his family. The action takes place four years later and Virgil is now married to Peyton. The feared gang retaliation and threats continue and as a result Virgil, Peyton and Virgil’s sister Laurel, have been forced to move several times. Virgil and Peyton are now residing in upstate New York. Laurel has relocated to Montana with her two children. She is now known as Vivian and trying to rebuild her life. 


Although neither Virgil nor Laurel is a part of the Witness Protection (or WitSec) program, they both knew that you don’t maintain contact with family members. Laurel resides in an area without cell phone coverage and she hasn’t been able to sever ties with her mother. As in Inside, the good (and possibly) bad thing about living in a small town is that everyone knows everyone. Laurel, a.k.a. Vivian, fears that her identity has been blown when a local real estate agent is murdered for no reason. It turns out her fears are not baseless. 


Laurel knows that there isn’t much her brother can do, especially since Peyton is in the last trimester of a difficult pregnancy and they have a toddler at home. She also isn’t willing to trust her neighbor, Sheriff Myles King to protect her and her children. Just when she thinks that things can’t get any worse she finds out that her mom has been murdered by the gang and they definitely know where she is living. What follows is a game of cat-and-mouse, not only for Laurel and Myles but also for Virgil and the new leader of the gang. Will they be able to protect their families in time? In Seconds provides plenty of suspense and some light romance and makes for a quick but satisfying read. Look for In Seconds to be released this August.
