    Thriller - Murder Mystery - More

    Pray for the Girl by Joseph Souza My, oh my, OH MY! What a book this ended up being! The title had me wondering and as I read I realized that more than one girl in this story needed a whole lot of prayers! As I began to read I thought, “why is a man writing in first person about a woman who is a double amputee war veteran with so many issues? How can he relate?” but I kept reading. I then wondered why so many people in Fawn Grove, Maine seemed so strange or messed up. I next wondered who Jaxon was and why his death was so traumatic and so difficult to discuss for Lucy. I also wondered about narrator Lucy’s relationship to many of the people in the story from the relatives she was staying with to friends she once had in the town. I kept with it and wondered and thought and worried about the narrator and who was behind the murders and scratched my head a few times but when Lucy became a victim I really wondered what would happen next. And what happened was part two of the book and some of the questions I had were suddenly answered and I become even more embroiled in the book. As layers were peeled away and I got to know the characters better I kept hoping for a happy ending for someone in the story and though my main favorite does come through better off than I expected, more integrated and perhaps stronger – I did worry as I closed the book not knowing whether or not that would remain true forever. Did I like this book? YES! Would I read more by this author? Definitely! Why did I like it? It was well written, made me think and care and kept me guessing to the end Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Wounded

    NOT LIKE ANY OTHER NOVEL! Surprises, Mystery, and unique but odd characters grace these pages. The story line is a hero who is wounded in Afghanistan that returns to Fawn Grove. The WOW factor of this book is the part of Pray for the Girl's that sets it apart from other stories. Can Not Say much here without sharing too much. Does have some violent situations to note. "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    INTENSE!

    This is the first book I have read by Joseph Souza. This is not a light hearted story, it is intense. The book is told from Lucys point of view. Our vet who returns from the war minus her legs, who detoured to New York as a Sous chef to try and drown out the voices. She returns to her small home town to get her life together. The books starts with Lucy taking an interest in the murder of an Afghanistan 15 year old. You settle in as much as you can dealing with mental anguish and physical being Lucy. The story is so deftly told you ARE Lucy. While your investigating the death along with members from your past who don't recognize you, your catapulted into twist, turns, secrets and evil in book 2. And what about the ending? She's ready. Thank you you Joseph Souza, Kensington Books and Net Galley. All thoughts and opinions are my own and were unsolicited.
