(Moonlighters Series)
Terri Blackstock
ISBN: 978-0310283140
March 11, 2014/352 pages/$14.99

A husband’s lies can have deadly consequences.

When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.

Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers’ demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband’s dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

Pre-order a copy for just $4.99 on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, or the eBook version on CBD until March 10th.

Terri Blackstock delivers another nail-biting suspense with Distortion. As part of the the Moonlighters series (so-called because Juliet and her two sisters are "moonlighting" as assistant private investigators), this novel can easily be read as a stand-alone, although you really don't want to miss the first book, Truth Stained Lies, which I reviewed here. I was captivated from the opening pages as Juliet's husband was gunned down and a seemly random shooting quickly escalted into a more sinister case, with danger threatening Juliet and her sons, and previously hidden secrets revealed a different reality of her husband's life. Juliet's struggles as she battles grief, disbelief, and a wide variety of emotions, all while she and her sisters race to solve the mystery of her husband's death--and life!--are authentically portrayed and easily relatable. Plenty of heart-pounding moments kept me glued to the pages. Fair warning: this is not a casual read, and you will find yourself continually saying just one more chapter until you reach the end! This series is going on my keeper shelf, and I'm already looking forward to the third novel!

I just posted my review of Distortion for LitFuse and wanted to check out some of the other blogs. That's how I discovered you. I am a retired school librarian/English teacher. Now I live a much more relaxed life, reading, quilting, gardening (summer time) and spending time with husband, 3 adult children and 6 grandchildren. My husband sings in a Christian men's chorus so spring/early summer means 25-30 concerts. I blog at Thoughts from Mill Street ( I would love if you would stop in and read some of my reviews. I am marking your blog so I can visit regularly!
