5-Stars Book Review on Readers' Favorite for Devil in the Details (Book 2)!

28 December

Reviewed By Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite Devil in the Details by Kimberly Brouillette is Book 2 of The Monastery Murders. Wattsville, Maine has been the center of a terrifying killing spree and Detective Williams is looking for help from a different angle – a paranormal investigator. Unable to tell anyone else what he has experienced, Williams and Nancy do their own investigating and discover information that will send the case spiraling off in an unexpected direction. The walls are starting to crumble as the lies begin to be found out and the detectives may be on the trail of the right killer at last. Can they determine who it is before more blood is spilled? Devil in the Details: The Monastery Murders Book 2 by Kimberly Brouillette is even better than the first book. With the scene well and truly set, this book starts off right where book 1 ended. We start to see some of the connections come together in ways that just build the suspense even more. There are plenty more twists and turns in this action-packed sequel and you will be tempted to sit and read the book in one sitting. More clues are spun out, characters are developed even more, and there are a few surprises on offer too. By the end of the book, you will think you know who the killer is, but I think book 3 will hold the real key, the final clues to bring the entire mystery to an end. This is another fantastic offering from Ms. Brouillette, with plenty of non-stop action in a fast sequel. I can't wait to read book 3 now, just to see how it all ends.

Secrets in the Shallows (Book 1) Earns 5-Stars Book Review on Readers' Favorite!

24 December

Reviewed By Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite Secrets in the Shallows by Kimberly Brouillette is Book 1 of The Monastery Murders series. Wattsville, Maine is about to bear the brunt of a huge storm. A young boy disappears on his way home in a snowstorm, murdered and thrown in the monastery pond. It bears a striking resemblance to an earlier murder of another teenager and the entire community is shaken to the core. Mother Superior has served for years but her life is about to change forever. Ghosts wander the monastery, more victims and witnesses to what has happened. Can detectives find the killer before another body is left? DA John Smith and his fiancée, Katy, are embroiled in the crime up to their necks as they battle to bring about justice, but the story is just beginning. Secrets in the Shallows: The Monastery Murders Book 1 by Kimberly Brouillette is a fascinating tale of murder, mystery and the paranormal. It is gripping stuff, a story that hooks you right from the start and drags you deep into a traditional murder mystery but with a paranormal twist. This is a real page-turner and, although there are several stories going on, I promise you that they all have something to do with the main plot, even when they seem to be totally unrelated. This is very clever writing as Ms. Brouillette leads you through a haunting and horrific tale, gradually spilling clues and building suspense as the novel reaches its cliffhanger of an ending, landing you with a crash into book 2. I felt every emotion throughout this book. I felt as though I were there every step of the way. This is an eerie story with fantastic characters and I guarantee you will not have a clue who the murderer is. I made a few guesses but was wrong every step of the way.
