Romantic Suspense ~ Stutter Creek ~ "One Hell of a Thriller" Review

Hey Everyone ~
If you are in the Midland, Texas area tomorrow (September 14th), stop by the Midland Farmer's Market between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.  It's Author Day!  Whoohoo!  Kimberly and the gang at MFM are such a great, accommodating group, and the place--outside, on concrete, under metal awnings--is awesome.  So if you are around, come by and say hello!

Now for the blog:
I usually try to avoid posting my own work simply for shameless self-promotion, but my will power is at an all time low today, so here goes...

STUTTER CREEK, romantic suspense from 5 Prince Publishing.  A snippet and some reviews...

Suddenly, Beth made a decision. She rammed the Camaro's gearshift into first and stepped on the gas. Fishtailing back onto the road, she shifted up to second, and then third, keeping her eyes trained on the highway ahead. She knew the boy was no longer there, but what if he appeared while she was moving? What if he was somehow hanging onto the car like that old urban legend about the killer with a hook? What if he appeared while she was driving?

She thought if that happened, it might be the end. It would send her right over the edge of sanity into the cavern of insanity. One hand crept back up to her face, wanting to shield her eyes. She was afraid the boy wasn’t human. His face had seemed so pale, almost translucent. A little phantom.

No, no, no. It was her mind. It was playing tricks on her. That had to be it.

Staring straight ahead, she pressed the gas harder and harder, shifting up into fourth without even thinking, years of experience guiding her.

Beth began to feel like an idiot, a complete, dyed-in-the- wool idiot. Did I fall asleep while driving? Did I pass out? Maybe the counselor was wrong; maybe I’m stark raving mad! 

She drove on, running on instinct and adrenalin, terrified that she’d seen a real boy, even more terrified that she hadn’t.

One of the best books I've read to date. Relatable, wonderful characters. Exciting plot line that keeps you reading to the very last word. Love the touch of supernatural as well. Extremely well-written and never loses momentum for a second. A definite MUST-READ.

Just as my title says.

Wow, just wow. This little thriller had me wanting to read it all in one night then wanting to read between my fingers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Thriller from Ann Swann
This review is from: Stutter Creek (Paperback) Thank you, Ann Swann, for a beautifully crafted thriller. This book has it all, suspense, tension, romance, beautiful ladies, and an "I hate him immediately serial killer." If you love thrillers, this book is a must read. You will be hard pressed to put this book down until you turn that last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-crafted, captivating suspense novel!
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stutter Creek (Kindle Edition)
Ann Swann is a talented author whether she is writing a scary, suspense middle grade novel or a contemporary romance novel, but she outdid herself when she combined romance with suspense in her latest novel, Stutter Creek.

Ann knows how to craft a captivating suspense story. I became immersed in the novel immediately, and couldn't wait to find out what the next chapter held. 

Stutter Creek is a beautifully written, expertly crafted suspense novel. If you enjoy a novel that will keep you glued to its pages, you will love this novel.

I want to say thanks to everyone for the lovely reviews, I didn't print them all but I wanted to! *wink*  However, now I've got the challenge of writing another rom-sus.  Ahhh, this is the life ~ guess I'd better hop to it!  Till next time...

Afterthought:  This book is available on Amazon (click the pic), B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, and at the 5 Prince Publishing website.  And you can walk into any brick & mortar and ask them to order it if you don't want to do the Amazon 1-click (I'll admit it, though, I'm a one-click addict!).
