Where the Blame Lies

 

by Mia Sheridan

 

 

 

 

 

Abducted. 
Terrorized. 
Imprisoned. 
 
At nineteen-years-old, college student Josie Stratton was kidnapped by a madman and held shackled for ten months in an abandoned warehouse before she finally escaped her hellish prison. 
 
Eight years later, when the body of a young woman is found chained in the basement of a vacant house, Cincinnati Police Detective Zach Copeland is instantly reminded of the crime committed against Josie Stratton. Zach was just a rookie on the perimeter of that case, but he’s never forgotten the traumatized woman with the haunted eyes. 
 
As more information emerges, the crimes take on an even more sinister similarity. But Josie’s attacker died by suicide. Does the city have a copycat on its hands? A killer who picked up where the original perpetrator left off? Or are they facing something far more insidious? 
 
Josie has spent the last eight years attempting to get her life back on track, but now there’s a very real chance she could be the unknown suspect’s next target. As Zach vows to keep her safe, and Josie finds herself responding to him in a way she hasn’t responded to any man in almost a decade, the investigation takes on an even more complex edge of danger. 
 
As past and present collide, Josie and Zach are thrust toward a shocking and chilling truth. A revelation that threatens not only Josie’s life, but everything she’s been fighting so desperately to reclaim.

Casus belli !!

 

Where the Blame Lies

 

 

First this is not Mia Sheridan’s old school romance, angsty, emotional, and heart throb feels —- No, nope and not at all.  This is the DARK SIDE and I can NOT get enough!  Come to the dark side my book ho’s! 

There’s a fantastic cast, the characters were all easy to like, the storyline flowed continuesly, and the tears fell frequently, and the scenery written enhanced all the senses.

 

 

Mia Sheridan held nothing back pouring her emotions in true grit and raw form.  Trust me this true crime thriller is full of real life calamity, the scenes were raw, the characters portrayed great suffering, affliction and distress.  All of these emotions but most of all this is a story of survival, rising above and success.

 

 

Josie Stratton is the heroine and I do mean that in the literally sense, she is the survivor and she dominates in her supremacy.  The trial and tribulations she went through are no joke and sometimes hard to read, but in the end she rose above the darkness, fought to stay alive, and stayed the course.  She continued to live the dream, got a job, keeping a farm home, meeting friends and might have found actual love.

 

 

 

 

Zach and his partner Jimmy are on copy-cat murder/aduction case similiar to Josie’s, Zach was one on the responding officers to her crime about 8 years earlier.  I think these two souls might have imprinted at the time, who can tell with such horrors coming to light, but I got the feeling in Mia Sheridan’s talented fingers.

 

 

I really cannot say anything further except I loved all of the characters in this poignant suspenseful thriller and the romantic suspense is highly addictive.  But wait.. I have to say the twist at the end is a free fall into, um.. I’m not sure, I kinda liked the bad guy… dam me.

Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I should hate her.
I should hate him.

The game has changed.
I will win.

What a super trippy mind warp this brilliantly woven tale of a tortured hero reliving his horrible past even as he finds a tormented heroine trying to forget hers. Together they find forgetting, forgiving and moving on so much more easier in the arms of each other.

I adored this Dark-ly intense romance with hints of mystery, passion and woe, thrills and chills, and some pretty extreme villains you cannot help but laugh in delight at their demise! I highly recommend it for any and all lovers of a semi dark romance without all the blood, guts and gore of violence or rape themes, instead pick it up and fall into lust with all things Braxton Kennedy!

Tormented Dark Heros and Heroines!

The real eye opener is the first page when I read Braxton saying goodbye to his current “toy”, Swan. Now this could mean several things: Six feet under or Moving on, either in this life or the next. My heart rate escaladed rapidly in the next chapter as Braxton finds, buys and cleans up his new “toy”, Bunny a.k.a. Jessica. Imagine my surprise when I am totally addicted to Braxton’s darky kinks and savage acts of sweetness, he oozes complete sex appeal and I am hooked and charmed right out of my poor wool bronco socks.

Poor Bunny, my blood boils for the atrocious abuse this woman has went through, however I cannot help but crow in pride and delight when she continues to push forward, her hardship has only made her stronger and her strength makes her a survivor.
