Happy Friday everyone! I’m delighted to be welcoming the #booksontour festivities to A Knight’s Reads for D. K. Hood’s 11th (!!!!!!) Kane and Alton book, Be Mine Forever.
A massive thank you to Noelle Holten for inviting me on the tour and to Bookouture for my advanced e-copy that I received through Netgalley.
Gray clouds gather overhead as she runs along the dark road. Not a soul is out in the storm, or so she thinks. As the vehicle pulls up alongside her, she sees a familiar face behind the wheel and thinks she’s safe. Little does she know, she has just put herself in unthinkable danger…
When local cheerleader, Laurie Turner, goes missing after practice and her bright red pick-up truck is found abandoned by the side of a quiet road, Detective Jenna Alton fears the worst.
Visiting Laurie’s family house, Jenna senses that the teenager’s home life isn’t as perfect as her father would have people believe. Quick to temper and full of hatred towards Laurie’s mother, Dr Turner doesn’t seem to know the first thing about his own daughter, let alone how long she’s been missing for.
With the clock ticking, the whole town takes to the streets to find the missing girl and, after a frantic search, a terrible discovery is made at the bottom of an old mine shaft on the outskirts of town. Laurie’s pale body is totally still and Jenna is sure somebody in the local community is her killer.
When another cheerleader goes missing, Jenna thinks that someone close to the school is picking the teenagers off one by one. As she talks to the other students, it becomes clear that there are plenty of people who’d like to silence the girls forever.
Then her own deputy David Kane comes face to face with the murderer, and Jenna has to race to save him. Can she do so before it’s too late? Or will another young life be taken?
If you enjoy Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot, you will love this unputdownable crime thriller from The Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author D.K. Hood.
**Each Kane and Alton book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**
What Did I Think?
Bejeezus! D. K. Hood can write a cracking opener but this one takes the biscuit so far!! Of course walking home in your own in the dark, you’d get into a car driven by a familiar face. You’d be stupid not to…. that’s unless you live in Black Rock Falls!!
“Living in Black Rock Falls is a delight as well as a curse.”
Yes the dynamic duo of Dave Kane and Jenna Alton are back with their amazeballs supporting cast. And there is a new addition to the team too… Zac Rio! Will this city boy be up to the trials of Black Rock Falls?? Only time will tell.
Anyhow, this time round, some dastardly persona is targeting the school cheerleading squad. Yes we have someone who really hates the peppiness (is that a word) of the cheerleaders … I’ll admit, there are days I can’t stand the cheeriness of others but not enough to bump them off… no I’d have reasons but not for their cheery disposition…
Hood has yet again created a tense crime thriller that jumps between the investigation and insights into the villainous mind of a killer. I don’t know how this woman keeps coming up with new and creative ways of killing her victims without it feeling like a replica of something she’s done previously or something someone else has done. I don’t actually care because I love this series and it just gets better with each book. Please don’t stop!! #KaneAndAltonAddict
Who Is D. K. Hood?
I’ve always had a wicked sense of humour and was the kid who told the ghost stories around the campfire. I am lucky to have family all over the world and have spent many vacations in places from Paris France to Montana USA and Australia. I use the wonderful memories from these visits to enhance my stories.
My interest in the development of forensic science to solve crime goes back many years. I enjoy writing crime, mystery and thrillers. With many stories, waiting for me to write I’ll look forward to sharing many spine-tingling stories with you.
D.K. Hood is an active member of International Thriller Writers.
