Hidden beneath greed, deceit and coercion hides the truth

Enticed by an investment firm in Morocco, Eric Martin is caught in a world where no one can be trusted

Beneath the golden desert and azure seas of Morocco lurks a hidden world of greed, deceit and financial terrorism. But the players are not who you might think. Lured away from his seemingly idyllic life as a managing director for a major international bank in Toronto, Eric Martin returns to his ancestral roots in Morocco.

Tempted by a mysterious offer from a boutique financial firm, Eric soon discovers he has walked into the middle of a whirlwind where everyone has their own secret agenda, and he unwittingly has become the key to unlocking them all.

Eric Martin is desperate to forget his past, one that almost cost him his future.

Working in Paris as deputy head of a bank's internal security department, Eric notices a high-speed trader's uncanny ability to predict extremely profitable trades. Even though there's nothing illegal about the activity, he knows the trader's success is more than just luck.

But, no one believes him. Armed only with a handful of data and a powerful instinct, Eric searches for the mysterious trader on his own. He suspects that a predictive algorithm has fallen into the wrong hands.

Eric sets off for Istanbul to find answers promised to him by an informant. He finds an unlikely ally in Interpol agent Stephanie Brule. With Interpol wanting him back in Paris and out of the way, Eric's quest is also hampered by the sudden appearance of his ex-lover, a boss he's not sure he can trust, and a terrorist who always seems one step ahead.

Will Eric put an end, once and for all, to the nightmare that began when he accepted a job that was too good to be true? Or will his need for revenge and justice lead him deeper into a treacherous world he has no way of escaping?

In The End By John W. Medford-Book Review-All About The Series-A Beck Valley Tour


NEW RELEASE....
A generation has lost its way. And no one will sin without retribution.

Parents are crushed after their daughter is ripped from their lives. Ivy chases every lead, but the fog of deception is deep.

So very deep.

For mankind, the end is near. How many sacrifices will it take before the cataclysmic events can't be stopped?

It was supposed to be a confession. Instead, it became a statement of conviction -- to Satan.

Will Ivy be able to stop a demonic killer?

It's one woman's pledge to save a generation from a fanatical psychopath.

It's one man's path to claim his destiny.

Can Ivy possibly back away from the threat?

He believes Ivy has sinned. And it is time for her life to end…just like all the others.

Available to buy from....
Amazon.com   Amazon.co.uk    Paperback

"Rife with deceit and deception and characters that leap off the page, this story is told with confidence through a sure hand, engaging both the mind and the heart. A compelling treat." -- Steve Berry, New York Times Bestselling Author

"An intense and heart wrenching story that keeps you engaged from beginning to end." -- Simon Wood, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of DECEPTIVE PRACTICES.

"I love the way that Mefford writes, seamlessly jumping between characters and time frames with no confusion, and he is extremely descriptive of the setting . You almost feel like you are watching a movie instead of reading a book!" -- Hilary Mahoney, Elusive Red Tiger

Above reviews from An Ivy Nash Thriller, Book 1, IN Defiance



And I thought
This is my second chance to read An Ivy Nash thriller.  I was super excited to be offered to read  In The End.

In this newest installment of the Ivy Nash series we are taken on a fast paced ride.  

As the plot unfolds everyone realizes this just isn't about one missing immigrant teen.

The story line gives the reader a mix of action with some passion, love and some sadness.  But a little hope is left as well. 

If you are a lover of suspense and a large series to sink your teeth into you will not be disappointed. 

Although I have not read any of the other series which crossover 
I am sure that I would enjoy them just as much.  

If you start be fore warned you might not be able to put them down.  

I enjoyed In The End and give it a 'thumbs up' and a 5 star rating. 

I received a complimentary copy from Beck Valley.

The Scoop 
By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the soon-to-be-released Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series. 

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I've included a cross-over character -- it's a lot more fun that way. Plus -- and here's the real kicker -- I'll write a final six novels that brings all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless. At least that's my hope. 

Starting with IN The End, I'll be launching a new book every 2-4 weeks. IN The End will segue into the Ozzie Novak Thrillers. ON Edge (book 1), is due out on November 28. From there, it will be non-stop suspense until all six Ozzie books are released. And my editor tells me that Ozzie Novak is my best character yet.:) So, I hope you're ready for some thrilling binge-reading. 

How can you catch up if you've started the Redemption Thriller Series mid-stream? Box sets have been created in the Redemption Thriller Series to allow you to pick up a pretty nice discount. To read the first three Alex Troutt thrillers just copy and paste this link into your browser: http://smarturl.it/05gf5r Or, you can search for Redemption Thriller Series Box Set. Alex Troutt Thrillers books 4-6 are also a box set. The Ivy Nash and Ozzie Novak thriller box sets will be coming soon.

Goddess Fish Promotions Tour-Deadly Choices by Karen Randau

Deadly Choices (Rim Country Mysteries Book 3) by [Randau, Karen]

About the book 
An elderly woman with an arrow in her chest. A murdered journalist. A decades-old cover-up. 

In Deadly Choices (Rim Country Mysteries Volume 3), Rita and Cliff Avery team up again to solve a spate of murders in their picturesque Arizona mountain town of Rim Vista. Rita’s mother Willow delivers gut-wrenching news while falling for the man who could be responsible for four deaths. And Rita must escape a string of life-threatening predicaments thrown at her by an assailant willing to do anything to scare Cliff off the case.
And I thought
Not just a page turner! It will grab you at page one. You'll be
hanging on for dear life!

Deadly Choices is a smoothly written thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who the villain is.

There are a lot of options to choose from! Among the suspects is the antique shop employee, the German antique buyer and his daughter, the victim's girlfriend (who turns out to be leading a double life ) and even Rita's rancher friend Robert.

As Rita and her detective husband search for clues Rita's mom
Willow joins in to clear Robert's good name after they become smitten with each other.

There is a bit of a rocky road for Rita as she investigates from being kidnapped to narrowly escaping being blown to smithereens by a bomb that takes out one of the suspects.

Deadly Choices is book 3 in the series. It is written as a stand alone installment.

I enjoyed the dynamics between Rita and her husband Cliff so much that I would really like to read the first two books. (see info below on the series) I expect Willow and Robert I will be a permanent part of the cast in future installments.

If your a fan of suspense you'll enjoy this thrilling twisty story.
You'll be kept guessing!

This was a great story/plot for any age with no language, graphic romantic or crime scenes.

I received a complimentary copy.

Deadly Choices by Karen Randau- Goddess Fish Promotions Book Tour


About the book 
An engaging ex-con. An arrow in an elderly woman’s chest. A slain investigative reporter. Karen Randau brings back Rita and Cliff as innocent bystanders to a secret worth killing for in Deadly Choices: Book Three of the Rim Country Mystery series.
An elderly woman stumbles into their campsite as Rita, Cliff, and Rita’s long-lost mother enjoy s’mores and folk music around the campfire. Things get interesting when Rita’s mother falls for the key suspect, Rita’s old friend and mentor. Rita discovers her mother isn’t the woman she thought she was, and her dear friend has forced her into hiding.


Murder and decades of someone else’s bad choices — this isn’t your average motherly visit!

Goddess Fish Tour Book Blast/Giveaway-Prosecco Christmas by Sylvia Ashby



About the book 
Family is where life begins.
And what better time to spend with your family than Christmas week?

Ashley and Giacomo go to Upper Swainswick, a postcard village ten minutes’ drive from Bath, to stay with Ashley’s mum and stepdad. It’s their last visit before the arrival of their first child.

But babies have a habit of being unpredictable.

So when Ashley goes into labour on Christmas Eve, three weeks ahead of schedule, it takes everyone by surprise.
She’s not ready! Her perfect Birth Plan is packed away in her hospital bag two hundred miles away, she has no going home outfit, and she has a live event planned for New Year’s Eve for her YouTube channel, The Sinking Chef. People have been signing up for it for weeks. She can’t possibly disappoint them on the last day of the year. What is she to do?

The tinsel gets even more tangled when Giacomo’s parents decide to fly from Italy to meet their first grandchild. Hotels are fully booked, so everyone has to stay under the same roof.


Would eleven people in the house, not counting the baby, turn out to be simply too much for Ashley?
Read an excerpt
Predictability is key in having an uncomplicated birth, I realise.

Joslyn, a young and tall American lady at the antenatal classes, even tried to use an ancient Japanese fortune-telling device – omikuji to predict the correct birth date for her child. I checked it on the internet and omikuji is basically a paper strip with a prophecy written on it and can be found at shrines and temples throughout Japan.

Only Joslyn wasn’t in Japan, but in England and we don’t have many shrines and temples around. So she made do with a free omikuji generator online. She got “uncertain bad luck”, “uncertain good luck” and “middle bad luck” and was quite hysterical for the rest of her pregnancy. I don’t think she scheduled a Caesarean either.

‘Giacomo, could you give us a hand with the wine? I want to pick some good Prosecco. You stay in the car, darling,’ Mum chirps towards me as she hurries out. ‘We won’t be a mo.’

‘I’ll come with you,’ I cry after her. I don’t fancy spending the next half an hour alone in the car. Mum’s “moments” can be anywhere up to an hour at a time.

I open the car door and put my foot out. I step right into a puddle which soaks my boot with German efficiency.

‘Great.’ I groan.

I turn in my seat and try to get out of the car avoiding the puddle with my other foot. Hopefully, it’ll be warm inside Marks & Spencer’s so my boot will dry out fast. I manage to step over the wet patch and slide out of the seat when a Braxton Hicks hits me so hard I double over in pain. I close my eyes, breathe and pant for a few seconds. Hot sweat flushes down my body and soaks me all the way down to my, already wet, feet.  This contraction is particularly strong. It makes me grip my stomach, huddle my shoulders and shiver against the strong December wind.

I really wish I was at home, in bed, and not in a supermarket car park braving the wind. “I’m pregnant and in pain!” I want to shout after Mum who’s just disappearing through the supermarket’s sliding doors. Next to her is Michael, who is still tapping on his phone and not looking where he’s going.

‘You all right, love?’ I hear a man’s voice from close proximity. I look up. It’s the man I saw this morning collecting donations by the M&S front door. The one with the Rudolf jumper and Santa hat. He’s looking at me with an open interest.

‘I’m fine, thanks.’ I straighten up and brush my hair back. ‘It’s Braxton Hicks,’ I explain. ‘It’s not the real thing.’

The man doesn’t look convinced. He shakes his green donation bucket, making it rattle thoughtfully.

‘Braxton Hicks, uh?’ he says. ‘It’s doesn’t look like Braxton Hicks to me.’

I glare at him, irate. Why does everyone around me think they are childbirth experts? Mum, Michael, now this man in a ridiculous reindeer jumper with a donation bucket.

‘I’ve just been to the hospital,’ I inform him, ‘where I was thoroughly examined,’ “by a nurse with a uterus” I almost add but stop myself. ‘They assured me these are Braxton Hicks’.

‘Right,’ the man doesn’t waver. ‘Who did you say examined you?’

Honestly! Why does this man think I have time for chit-chat when I’m in so much pain?

I lean back against the car for support. I feel quite faint all of a sudden.

‘I can’t remember,’ I tell him breathlessly. ‘And does it really matter anyway?’

The man shakes his donation bucket again.

‘I think they might have got it wrong.’

‘Maybe.’ I force myself to nod politely. ‘What makes you say that?’

‘That wet patch on the front of your jeans is a pretty big telltale,’ he says, eying my legs.

I look down.


‘Oh, my God!’ I squeal. ‘My waters broke!’

Dangerous Changes- by Joyce T. Strand-A Beck Valley Tour

Dangerous Changes: An Emily Lazzaro Mystery by [Strand, Joyce T]

About the book
A series of events rattle Emily Lazzaro: a near-death encounter with a pickup on a narrow mountain road, the murder of a would-be client, and an ex-fiancé who won’t let go. Can she survive a police investigation, pressure from her ex’s company, and the suspicions of a possible new love-interest—so that she can make the changes to create a meaningful new life in a special town in southern California? 

And I thought
This reader was engaged from page 1.  Dangerous Changes is a topsy turvey mystery and  thrilling  fast paced ride. 

The characters are engaging.  The story keeps you on the edge of your seat.  

I loved Emily.  Sometimes I wanted to 'kick her' for letting that ex manipulate and use her.  But eventually she overcomes and stands on her own two feet.  She has too when she is kid napped!

A little romance begins with Jackson Brexton after his brother 
scares the wits out of her.  But they all become friends in the end.

I think what I like best is that the characters and their challenges were real.  Emily isn't 'set up' by an inheritance or similar situation
she makes her own way.  

  Although this is a clean mystery; no language or romance scenes and really no crime scenes I would not call this a Cozy.   

The story/plot is mysterious and kept me turning pages all the way to the end.  

There weren't alot of characters to get the reader wondering what is going on.  The story is straight forward and engaging.  
I was left hoping for a 2nd installment.  

Will Emily begin working to renovate the old mansion in town to open as a B&B?  Will Jackson end up the chef?

I was left with lots of questions and hoping book 2 comes out soon.  

I really enjoyed Dangerous Changes.  

There was no language or bedroom scenes.
