Broslin Creek Trilogy by Dana Marton – Leave a comment to win Deathwatch

Dana Martin

Bare with me here in as I explain the series. The first two book released in this series were Deathscape and Deathtrap. Both were exciting romantic suspense books with a touch of paranormal. A small appearance by a secondary characters in Deathtrap prompted the author to write their story based on inquiries about them. Deathwatch was supposed to just be a prequel novel but turned out to be full length and therefore became the 1st book in the series but the 3rd released. If you havent read the series yet this works out perfect as you get a very early glimps of the hero’s of the other two books. Even if you’ve read Deathscape and Deathtrap reading Deathwatch is a must read as its an intriguing story full of action and suspense.  The hero and heroine of Deathwatch will be getting another book in future where we will hopefully be able to also catch up with the other characters from Deathscape and Deathtrap.

Leave a comment below and I will giveaway a ebook copy of Deathwatch.

BOOK 1

As the only person who can identify the most notorious hit man in the country, Kat Bridges is running for her life.  Murphy Dolan is in the Army Reserves, returning from his 2nd tour of duty, only to find a stranger hiding in his house. She's scared spitless. He's completely burned-out on violence. Neither of them has any trust left to give. If the best of the FBI couldn't protect her from the country’s most notorious assassin, does a burned-out small town cop have a prayer?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Plenty of action and suspense in this introduction to the Broslin Creek series.

Right from the start the author pulls you into an intriguing story. The heroine, Kat Bridges is watching her own funeral from a surveillance van in hopes the assassin who killed her friend and who she saw will show up so the FBI can apprehend him. Needless to say this doesn’t go well. Many explosions later Kat decides to make a run for it on her own realizing the FBI couldn’t protect her and it would keep her family safe.

Murphy Dolan is a police officer in Broslin Creek. He is just returning home from Afghanistan injured after losing his whole team on a mission gone bad. All he wants to do is get back to normal and get his body back in shape so he can start back at his job as a police officer. What he didn’t expect to find in his home was a woman asleep in his bed claiming she had a lease to be there.

Kat and Murphy tragic pasts made these two compelling to read. Kat had been in foster care for almost all of her childhood. She had been an angry child with violent tendencies before she was adopted by a loving couple that turned her around and then as an adult to want to help other children who were going through what she did. Murphy didn’t have a good childhood either but he decided he was going to not be a statistic and fought on the good side of the law and in the service until the tragic incident that killed his men and left him with a huge hole in his heart and suffering from anxiety and PTSD. I’ve never seen to people more perfect for each other in so many ways.

In a suspense book the author always leaves us clues as to who the bad guy is. You try and figure it out before the end and shout with glee when you are right. Well I have to say the author did a fabulous job of keeping you guessing till the very end in this one.

After a near-death experience, artist Ashley Price is compelled to paint visions of the dead, and fears she's gone crazy. Then she paints a man buried alive and, recognizing the surroundings, she rushes to save him. Instead of being grateful to her for rescuing him, Detective Jack Sullivan accuses her of being in league with a serial killer. He swears he will put her behind bars. Except, the more time he spends with her, the more he falls under her spell. Can he trust her, or is he walking into another deadly trap?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great suspense book with a touch of paranormal and a dash of romance.

Detective Jack Sullivan has been looking for a serial killer for years since he killed his sister. The killer has now set him up when he thinks Jack getting to close and captures him.

Three days later Ashley Price, who is an artist who is struggling with depression over something tragic that happened which resulted in her father keeping her daughter, has a horrible vision that she paints as she’s having it. When the vision has passed and she looks at what she painted she realizes its on her property and its a man that has been buried alive. She rushes to the location and manages to dig him up and he’s still alive. That man was Jack.

From here Jack believes that Ashley has to be working with the killer, especially when he finds other paintings she has done, all of murdered victims.

Almost 90% of this book is the mystery on figuring out who the killer is. The author does a great job of making you really have think on who it could be. Ashley and Jack’s romance was slow to come but she was so emotionally unstable from her previous trauma even though she was working hard to overcome it so she could get her daughter back and Jack was just one tracked mind on getting the killer at the expenses of everything.

I really enjoyed this book and it looks like she is currently writing the Captain Bing’s story. I will defiantly be buying that when it comes out.

She'd been "the sick girl" for most of her life. She refused to go straight to "the weird girl". Heart-transplant recipient Sophie Curtis has been in her own antiseptic bubble for so long, she just might not be able to venture out into the real world again. Her spooky body memories are scary enough, but then she finds herself in the cross hairs of a killer. "Love was blind, people said. But lust was blind, deaf and reckless." Ethan Bing hadn't been a great romantic before he became a cop. Whatever shred of optimism he had left after becoming Broslin Chief of Police had been seared out of him by the unsolved murder of his wife two years before. A new case brings the killer within reach just as Sophie pops into his life. She gets through his defenses like no other before, but soon it becomes clear that she's been selected as the killer's next victim.

Deathtrap by Dana Marton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great suspense book from Ms Marton. There are so many mysteries throughout this book from who killed a woman today to still searching for a killer of a woman from two years ago to why a recent heart transplant recipient is drawn to a certain house.

The Chief of Police of Broslin, Ethan Bing has been in a fog since the death of his wife two years ago. It has made him question himself as a husband and Chief since he wasn’t able to protect his own wife. When the latest murder has some clues that seem to point to his wife death he begins to wonder if they really do or if it’s just wishful thinking on his part.

Sophie Curtis was born with heart problems which left her having to live a very sheltered life until she got a heart transplant two years ago. Afterwards she decides she wants to live which ends up with her landing in Broslin and buying a house after some force led her there. She’s always been fascinated with a house that is just down the street from hers which turns out to be Ethan Bing.

There are lots of things that go on throughout the book and you wonder where they are going and how they are going to be related. The author did a great job of making you think its one thing and surprising you with the truth. I highly recommend this book for those that like there suspense with a dash of paranormal.
