ENAS REVIEW – Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle

A Mystery Suspense Thriller in every sense of the Word.”

With eminently admirable characters and exquisite imagination ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a compelling read where Author Kim Carter crafts mounting suspense that overwhelms skepticism, as this Book One of her series prepares for.

Charming personality of renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Grant Chatsworth lures a small town waitress-Lizzie to a deceptive ‘blissful happy marriage’ until secrets confined within the walls of Buckhead’s finest estates elucidate Lizzie about the darker nasty shades of Grant’s propensity of crime and cruelty. Terrible adversity and troubled faith lead Lizzie to take refuge at her sister Maggie’s doorstep, where destiny has more alarming adventures in store for her.

Author Kim Carter’s read is a mystery suspense thriller in every sense of the word with an intriguing narrative that moves at a breakneck pace, skillfully combined with a writing style that provides vivid mental pictures of the settings and characters sufferings. While many things are not what they seem, everything amazingly connects in a surprising finale.

Entertaining enough to engage even reluctant readers, as ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a Powerful5-star page turner that we highly recommended.

Editorial Reviews:

“The wait is finally over and Author Kim Carter has blessed the readers with another great suspense -filled read.” 

Her dynamic pen is one of the smoothest I have read. As a reader, I must be able to replay an author’s words in my head, creating a consistent, flowing movie full of action and emotion.  Carter has a gift for detail, dropping things here and there, just enough to give me a mental picture. She grabbed me and twisted me up in her world and kept me on my toes from the first paragraph. I felt myself running through the woods and experiencing all the anxiety and fear Jasmine felt. I felt like the detective trying to solve the crime with them.

Who was this man with those perfect white teeth and why did he do this to such a beautiful young girl. Private Investigators Iris Hadley and Clara Samples are my girls. These ladies are a great combination. There is never a dull day at Hadley and Samples Investigations. You would never believe they were in their 70’s.

Jessica Fletcher watch out!…The way they banter back and forth is hilarious. I love these two.

Quita is just the icing on the cake. Author Kim Carter developed the storylines so brilliantly before merging them together with such a smooth transition, causing nothing but pure drama till the end.From reading previous books from this author, I can see that she has not lost her touch. She has developed another hard-hitting read from start to finish.
I highly recommend anything this author writes.

Widows on The Case!

Two crafty septuagenarian widows turned private investigators; a crabby Atlanta cop recovering from a gunshot wound, and a cunning killer who dumps his victims rather appropriately in cemeteries. Those are just a few of the zesty ingredients in Murder among the Tombstones, the latest whodunit by Georgia-based mystery writer Kim Carter. It is a fast-paced, twister of a mystery that keeps you turning pages until the very end.

Private Investigators Iris Hadley and Clara Samples may be in their seventies, but don’t think they are over the hill. These ladies are witty, wily and with it. A Must Read!”

A former correspondent for The Chicago Tribune and Award Winning Author of The Billy Battles Trilogy ~Ronald Yates.

MURDER AMONG THE TOMBSTONES by KIM CARTER

Detectives are investigating the murder of a young woman. She was found in a local cemetery wrapped in a blanket. The case goes cold when all leads dry up.”

The victim’s sister turns to private investigators for help. Meet Iris and Clara … brand new to the business. These women are not your typical investigators. For one, they are both widowed and both in their 70s.

When a second body turns up in a different cemetery, the ladies turn to the detectives, who incidentally have both been shot and are on medical leave.  Along with their office associate, Quita, the ladies are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before someone else dies …. at least they will as soon as they figure out how their new I-phones work.

I have chuckled more with the antics of these very unique and quirky characters from the very first page. This is not a cozy. The mystery is solid, with characters that are credible. The interactions of Iris and Clara will have the reader shaking their heads, maybe remembering grandma or great aunt in their golden years.

I do hope to see more adventures of Iris and Clara. Many thanks to the author for the digital copy of this humorous crime thriller mix. (Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own)…  An Amazing Mystery Read!
