🎉🎉🎉 HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY TO D K HOOD 🎉🎉🎉 The latest Kane and Alton read, Pray For Mercy is out today!!!

Massive thank you to the awesome Noelle Holten for inviting me to join the #BooksOnTour fun and to Bookouture for my advanced e-copy of Pray For Mercy.

The Blurb

Her heart races as a noise from downstairs wakes her. She checks every room in her small home, but it’s not until she returns to the safety of her bedroom does she see movement. She’s not alone. And nobody can help her now…

Writing scrawled on the wall of Sheriff Jenna Alton’s office overnight leads her and her deputy David Kane to a secluded house on the outskirts of town. Inside, Jenna is devastated to find a much-loved local resident lying in a pool of blood, stab wounds covering her lifeless body. What monster would attack a defenseless woman living alone?

With no trace of the killer at the scene, the deadly message written on Jenna’s door is her only clue. But as the small town grieves, it leads her to a contractor who recently had access to the woman’s home. She races to interview him, only to discover the wreck of a car on a steep mountain road with another dead woman inside.

Jenna knows the victims were friends and regularly went to church together. She thinks a twisted killer has been watching them, waiting for the perfect time to strike. But before she can make her next move, one of her own team is found unconscious and covered in the blood of a third female victim—a knife inches away from his hand.

Pulse racing, Jenna questions her shaken deputy, who can’t explain why he was in the woman’s house. Could he really be a killer, or is someone playing an evil game? The clock ticks to uncover a dark secret that connects all three victims, but can she work it out before another innocent life is taken?

An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller from a USA Today bestselling author. If you’re a fan of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot, you will love this gripping read.

What Did I Think?

“What is wrong with this town?”

You know what Jenna? I really don’t know what is wrong with Black Rock Falls. It’s meant to be this quiet backwater town where two people can hide from the enemy and at every turn, there are psychopaths doing their upmost to make the town notorious! And this time, someone is bumping off elderly ladies!! What The Hell??!

Yes I’ve returned to my favourite location in Montana for another murder investigation with Kane, Alton and the team. but this killer is toying with the team, throwing them titbits to find the bodies left in remote locations. This killer has one helluva game plan to execute. My mind jumped through hoops as the investigation progressed, zipping from suspect to suspect. And the remoteness of each murder – that gave me the heebie jeebies!!

Hood has upped the ante with this one. Not only did I get into the guts of the investigation but I got to know the latest recruit Rio a bit better and also thrown into the mix is a minx trying to turn Kane’s head. Will she succeed? I was desperate to see how both Kane and Alton would deal both individually and together with this thorn in the proverbial.

I’ve loved this series from the start and I just can’t get enough of my trips to Montana. This book has left me with lots of questions so I’m waiting with baited breath for book 15(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
