Here are three Five-Star Reviews of my political cult suspense, House of Lies, that I discovered this morning.
“I don’t normally read novels that have romance in them so I was hesitant when I saw that this was labeled a “romantic suspense” but it came highly recommended so I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. There was more action than romance by far and I would even say that even though the book’s main character is a woman, it suits a male audience well. Skylar is stubbornly likeable and I enjoyed the humor between Braznovich and his pal, Ernie. I’ve read the controversy surrounding this book as far as whether it speaks truth about the house of prayer cult movement in the United States or whether it is purely a work of fiction, and the idea that the author could weave fiction and fact into such a suspenseful plot fascinates me. It’s a great read with plot twists that surprised me at every turn and it’s the kind of story you’ll find yourself thinking about long after you’ve put it down.” WyatteJ
“My only complaint about this book is that it ended abruptly and left me hanging, sort of like watching the Keiffer Sudderland tv series, 24. It’s that action packed but has a great blend of romance and wanting, though it’s way more about action than romance. I was worried Skylar was going to be a needy character but she stifles tears and attacks when needed. She has trouble following instructions sometimes, but that was something I could relate to. And Braznovich is the protector and lover every woman dreams of having. This book is different from anything I’ve ever read because it felt like there was truth in the story, like these things really happen right under our noses and there really are people trying to save their loved ones from dangerous cult groups. My favorite character is chain-smoking Ernie who always has a funny remark to add to a tense situation. I highly recommend this book. It’s suspenseful, funny, romantic and wildly action packed.” StephanieLovesReading
“Great read! It reads fast and furious. There’s nothing but action, well, and a little bit of romantic play but the story focuses on the action, the romance is a sideline thing. I liked the characters and could relate to almost all of them except for the bad guys. It’s one of those stories you find yourself thinking about while you’re driving. It just keeps popping in my head and I wonder how much of this sort of thing happens in real life and we just never know about it. If you like suspense and not being able to figure out who done it, you will enjoy this read.” BelkinBabe
