No way in hell would I allow myself to get involved with Detective Stone. I was smarter than that.

  1. That quote sure has me wondering what will happen next. I think I need to read a good detective story.

  2. Usually that kind of statement means the character will do just that, in this case get involved. I really like the cover of this book.

  4. That line is so stereotypical. It is just what you expect to be written before she falls head over heals for the guy.

  9. LOL
    Makes me think of that playfully snarky line, "Sounds like the famous last words of a fool" ;)
    Great teaser.
    I bet these too get it bad for each other.

  13. This, in turn, can take more time than you’re willing or able to spend. What’s the resolution? Get a piece of equipment that will exercise your total body.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
