About Murder “Among The Tombstones”:

“A Clara and Iris Mystery”

When Atlanta homicide detectives are called in to investigate the murder of a nineteen-year-old girl found dumped in historic Oakland Cemetery, they immediately begin working the case. But with no leads to follow, and their case log growing larger by the day, the murder quickly grows cold.

Desperate to keep the investigation of her deceased sister going, Ginger Baines hires two novice sleuths to solve the case. Widowed, well into their seventies, and new to the world of private investigating, Clara Samples and Iris Hadley aren’t your average private eyes.

When a second body is found in a neighboring cemetery, the plot thickens. With two bodies wrapped, almost lovingly, in a soft blanket before being discarded in a cemetery, could a serial killer be on the loose?

Joined by their young apprentice Quita, Clara and Iris are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before they can strike again.

But, will their bodies be the next ones discovered among the tombstones?



Amazing New Amazon Kindle Reviews for KIM CARTER MYSTERIES:

***

on December 3, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition

This book is like reading two stories in one; which I enjoyed immensely. Each chapter rotates between a homicide detective and a case he & his partner are working on and two novice sleuths in their seventies who have opened their own private investigation office.

While the detectives are focused on a case of a murdered young woman whose body was dumped in a cemetery, they soon find themselves victims themselves of a shooting incident by possible drug dealers. Their story is nitty-gritty and involves not only trying to physically heal from multiple gunshot wounds, but also trying to solve both cases.

The novice sleuths are focused on trying to fit into this new millennium with smartphones, texting, GPS, and something called Google. These ladies humorously work cases including insurance fraud, but soon find themselves also investigating the body dumped in the cemetery.

With a combination of suspense and thriller (the detective story) and humor and madcap adventure (the PI story), this book has it all for several difference genres of mystery fans. I enjoyed how the story mixed together in the last half of the book and how the elderly PI’s were able to help the injured seasoned detective solve the case. Read more

I have not had the pleasure of reading a Kim Carter novel before. I have already ordered the first book in order to find out how Clara and Iris started. I will say that I laughed and cried during this novel. Clara and Iris are a hoot but they get the job done. I love how Ms. Carter brings this story to life. I thought I would be reading a cozy mystery but I found out that I was reading a full-fledged mystery.

When a dead girl’s body turns up in the cemetery, and it isn’t buried, Atlanta homicide detectives are called. However, with very little to go on the case soon becomes cold.

When another body is discovered in another cemetery, it looks like it may be a serial killer. With the detectives taken out of action, the first young woman’s sister hires Clara and Iris to find the killer. However, it looks like the murder may go unsolved. With supporting characters Sugar and Quita as well as various police, this mystery is a fun read. I wasn’t able to figure out the killer until the end.

I highly recommend this book. Since I love Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, I was really drawn in!

Jordan Maxwell had originally moved to New York to make a name for herself as a freelance journalist. However, her great-uncle, recently deceased, has left her his massive estate in Maine.

As Jordan is packing for the move there, her neighbor is brutally stabbed. After seeing about her neighbor in the hospital, Jordan moves. Her life is about to change in more ways than one The small town, Solomon Cove in Maine is a post-card town, as idyllic as they come, yet a woman’s body is found on the beach. Other bodies are found in quick succession.

Jordan begins to wonder if the murders are somehow connected to her and to her extended family. What’s more, Jordan believes that she may be the next target. When Dawn Never Comes is a re-issue and for that, I’m thankful because I wouldn’t have had the chance to read it otherwise.

The story is very well written and draws the reader in and has an amazing twist. Why is Jordan connected? The discovery is stunning, making this book was impossible to put down!

Many thanks to NetGalley and to Raven South Publishing for this book to review!! 

Nov 6, 2018 – Perfect Mystery Thriller!
Format: Paperback

This is a good murder mystery with a touch of a psychological thriller, first published in 2016 and now re-released by new publisher Raven South Publishing …

Jordan leaves New York City for Maine when she inherits a house from an unknown uncle. When she arrives, the murders in the small town start and she must figure out her family’s past to prevent her own death. This is the first Kim Carter book I’ve read and she does a good job of holding your interest with a well thought out plot and clues.  It is a perfect stand-alone story. I received a copy of the book for a fair and honest review.

BOOK REVIEW BY 

Behind the Door | A. Gavazzoni

 

.

The book “Behind the Door” tells the story of Lara dying at the hands of her boyfriend Mark, a famous New York lawyer. Carl, Mark’s lawyer, to help with the client’s defense case that Lara’s death was accidental resolves to hire the psychiatrist Simone. The psychiatrist is a famous speaker and author of books on sexual behavior who accepts her work and begins reading Mark’s detailed printed texts about her passionate relationship with Lara. She studies every detail to form her final analysis of whether the girl’s boyfriend is innocent or not.

Simone attends psychiatric patients, with sexual disturbances and unusual fantasies, while researching sadomasochistic sexual behaviors for her next book and parallel to the office traces the profile of the lawyer and Lara as she reads the stories. She has a partner who is her best friend and research-partner. Edward helps police investigate a possible serial killer who tortures and kills women.

“Assassins follow standards that ultimately lead to them. Those of these were signs of torture, the victims’ travels, the violent deaths, the absence of rape and the sperm on the bodies. This was his trademark, his morbid signature ”

Gavazzoni has a unique, fluid writing, the scenes are of a veracity that comes to give shivers, excitement, curiosity, and desire to devour each page as if there were no tomorrow. The scenarios run between New York and Paris watered by the play of words, seduction, mystery and a mix of feelings that can only feel who read the work. 

“Simone did not feel tired. The text he was reading was absorbing. If it was a novel, it would be a bestseller, one of those impossible to quit. While reading, he forgot about life, eating and resting “

 

The writer in writing the reports of Mark’s Diary, the psychiatric appointments with the strangest cases of sexual disturbance, the serial killer murders and all the complements of the work was of an excellent intelligence. Simply phenomenal!

 

It’s not just a psychological thriller, it’s a junction of categories. It is a complete work! What also surprises me is the fact that the writer is Brazilian, recognized and internationally awarded with her books in English and not so popular in our national scenario. The prejudice rooted by some who are only “good foreign authors” should fall to the ground before the writing of Adriana Gavazzoni.

 

Some awards received were: Behind The Door, won the 2017 Golden Book Award in the United States, Book Excellence Award 2017 in Canada, Honorable Mention at the Paris Book Festival 2017 and Reader’s Favorite Award 2017. I hope the author can soon be awarded nationally.

 

Finally, the work was the best book read by me in 2018 with a fantastic plot, unusual sex scenes, friendship, humor, romance, love, sadism, masochism, hilarious patients, mystery, secrets, pedophilia, suspense, psychopathy, family, life, and death. I await the translation into Portuguese of the book II- Lara’s diary. ~

The Brilliant Game, A. Gavazzoni ~ The Red-Headed Booklover …

 

Psychiatrist Simone Bennet feels like a pawn on a chessboard—as if some invisible, master chess player is toying with her life and the lives of the people she loves and cares for.
A series of horrific events—several murders and Simone being tortured at the hands of a serial killer—culminate in the kidnapping of her daughter and have turned Simone’s life upside down.

Struggling to stay afloat in the middle of a sea of chaos, Simone continues to receive her psychiatric patients and do more work for the New York attorney, Carl, while local police, the FBI, and Edward—Simone’s boyfriend, best friend, and business partner—are working hard to locate her child.

Simone is analyzing another set of Lara’s journals, and she becomes dragged into a vortex of sex addiction, suffering, and Lara’s struggle for some kind of balance in her life, while Simone battles an inner fight against her mixed feelings for the enigmatic lawyer.

The Brilliant Game by A. Gavazzoni FACEBOOK and TWITTER TEASER

Courtesy of “The ReadHeaded Book Lover!”

The Brilliant Game… where do I start book lovers? How about I start by writing that I am obsessed with this series and think that The Brilliant Game is the perfect conclusion to a series I have grown to love over the past few months. The Brilliant Game is the third book in the Hidden Motives series with the first book called Behind the Door and the sequel called Lara’s Journal. The first two books in the series floored me, honestly when I read them it was as if the exceptional author A. Gavazzoni had written my dream novel and that was because everything I love about literature was laced throughout these two books, so it is safe for me to write that I am obsessed with them! Now, when I finished book two, I admit that although I was excited to start book three a part of me was hesitant and this was because I loved the series and worried the conclusion would be a disappointment.

After all, I have read many series and the third book usually always fail so I was worried. However! When I started to read The Brilliant Game and take the plunge, I noticed straight away that A. Gavazzoni has done it again and has reunited me with her spellbinding literature that manages to terrify as well as thrill me from the start! That is why I am already going to recommend that you lovely readers read this book but once again if you need more convincing then continue to read to learn more book lovers!

The Brilliant Game once again reunites the reader with the much-beloved protagonist Simone Bennet, a psychiatrist who specializes in unusual and peculiar sex addictions. Over the course of the two previous books, Simone has endured a great deal, so much so that you worry for her and her mental health because she really has had a terrible time and sadly, in book three it gets even worse.

In book three Simone’s beloved daughter is kidnapped thanks to some previous unfinished ‘business’ I can’t spoil and this, of course, worries Simone greatly. Simone, however, realizes that she must continue to work, to treat her patients and to work with Carl, a New York attorney on a particular case they have been working on. All of this is happening why everybody else around her including law enforcement tries to find her daughter before it is too late. Will they be able to find her? Read the exceptional The Brilliant Game to find out!

The Brilliant Game is a haunting, terrifying and thrilling novel that bewitched as well as horrified me all at once. The Brilliant Game is the type of novel I love because I love any book that involves crime because I studied forensic psychology, so I love when psychological crimes are featured in a story. The Brilliant Game once again shocked me from the start because although I thought I knew where the book was going to go, it didn’t go that way and instead took a U-turn and wow it was shocking! The themes combined and laced throughout The Brilliant Game perfectly compliment the atmosphere of the book and story, the reader will experience mystery, action, terrifying and thrilling moments and many more exceptional themes.

As I read The Brilliant Game, I found myself racing through it, turning the pages with haste thanks to the addictive nature. What I loved the most about The Brilliant Game is that it was not a silly serial killer novel in which the author has to rely on gimmicks. Instead, the story is unique and has the perfect combination of crime, suspense, and mystery which are all perfectly weaved together by the exceptional author A. Gavazzoni who I must add book lovers is insanely talented!

A. Gavazzoni is an incredible author who has written a fantastic story and come up with a brilliant idea. Gavazzoni from the very start sets the tone of the novel, she lets her readers know that this is going to be a dark and atmospheric book thanks to her literature and wow was it!

Gavazzoni is an exceptional writer because she grabs her readers attention from the start very quickly and keeps them engrossed until the end. There are no long build-ups that drag in The Brilliant Game; instead, the reader will be thrown into the thick of the story quickly, and the result of this is exciting (and slightly terrifying!).

Overall The Brilliant Game is a superb novel that has everything a reader would want in a story, it has a thrilling narrative, magnificent plot development and excellent characterization that will thrill and excite its readers so of course, I have to award this impressive piece of literature five stars!

CAT’S BOOK REVIEW:

“The best advice as a reader I have received was, “never judge a book by its cover.” Personally, I can say this is true about, “Find The Seeker!: The pathless path to fulfillment and happiness.”

Find The Seeker!, written by Author’s Clifford Stevens and Master Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi, who is, by the way, one of the few living Zen Masters of our generation, have poured their wisdom and souls into this book. Simply well written, you will take a path of freedom, deep inner peace, and a journey of inspiration and enlightenment while reading this book. It doesn’t read as a traditional new age, or Zen type read, it truly will uplift you no matter who or what you believe to be a “power greater than oneself.”
I will note, I maintain life in recovery from addiction. This book can also serve as a type of “life workbook” for those who want to live a full deep meaningful live while maintaining recovery.

It can be read as a guide with the advice and unique techniques shared inside as part of our recovery work and look “within oneself” in changing those thinking errors and character defects. That is why my favorite chapters I got the most from was “The Ego and Non- Thinking.” Both author’s knowledge of knowing there are plenty of books out there about meditation and “how to’s” is why this book was exceptionally written and much different than those books.

This read inspires and motivates one to go out in the world and enjoy living life now and be present, be it travel, exploring, or through life adventures. It will guide you to a fulfilling and happy destination and well-balanced living for a lifetime. It can be adapted to any faith or as we recovery people say, to whomever our “Higher Power” happens to be.

That is just some of what I have learned reading this fantastic book and much more!

I highly suggest it for everyone, and it deserves my 5-star rating.

 

 

New Review By ~ Red Headed Book Lover Blog


Find The Seeker!: The Pathless Path to Fulfilment and Happiness is one of the most moving, enchanting and informative self-help guides that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The description of this book intrigued me thanks to the sentence ‘a powerful, straight-talking wake-up call to people of all faiths and confessions.’ When I read this sentence, I was intrigued and wanted to learn more and so I knew that I had to read this book as well as review it for all of you lovely readers. Now that I have finished reading Find The Seeker, I can happily write that this self-help/spiritual guide is one of the most incredible books I have ever read from the genre so please book lovers, do read this book as you won’t regret it!

Find The Seeker is written by Genro Xuan Lou Laoshi, a Zen master and his pupil, Clifford Stevens. Throughout their enchanting book, they will enlighten their readers on many subjects; topics such as mind, body and spirit and personal growth as well as how to attain happiness. The authors of this stunning piece of nonfiction focus on the spiritual dimension… a dimension that everybody shares. They will blissfully take their readers on a journey on how they can live a fulfilling life, attain happiness and how to grow to who you want to be. The journey the reader is taken on is a beautiful one and will enlighten many readers.

The journey the reader is taken on throughout this book is incredible and they are taken on this journey in a flawless way, thanks to the two talented authors of this book. Both authors are well accomplished in the topics explored in this book and so they are more than qualified to share their thoughts, feelings, and opinions on how to live a more fulfilling life. The reader won’t be able to help but fully invest themselves in their teachings as they both have an excellent way of captivating the reader and compelling them to read from beginning to end.

Not only is Genro Xuan Lou Laoshi and Clifford Stevens men who have incredible teachings to share, they are also talented authors as their words are stunning and will grip the reader’s attention from very early on.

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

Praise for Find the Seeker!

Find the Seeker! is fresh as spring grass and refreshing as a clear stream. The teachings in this book refuse to be confined to a spiritual checklist or manual of meditative techniques. Instead, the authors, again and again, challenge readers to return to the vibrant truth of original nature. Going beyond optimistic self-help and nihilistic despair, Genro Xuan Lou, Laoshi and Clifford Stevens remind us of how wonderful it is to let go of grasping and taste the vividness of direct experience.”

–Robert Meikyo Rosenbaum, neuropsychologist and psychotherapist, Zen and Qi Gong teacher, author of Walking the Way: 81 Zen Encounters with the Tao Te Ching, and Zen and the Heart of Psychotherapy.
