Reviews! Reviews!

I LOVE to share when a great writer has a new book. Nike Chillemi is one such person. I delight in sharing my reviews with you, and hope you'll give her books a chance read. You may find you'll love them enough to venture into more of them! 
That Special One by Nike N. Chillemi

When young adult Ivy Chambers heads to college life to escape home life, she vows to never have a relationship that is not "true love." But it happens, and Ivy is heartbroken! Ultimately, Ivy is pulled between two young and likable men. Add to the mix suspicious fires, troubling memories, and the pitfalls of a new scene, and Ivy has her young hands full weaving her way through the mix.

This book will pull readers back into their own past of insecurities and problems. You will root for young Ivy and learn to love all of the secondary characters that help make any book better.

I highly recommend this book. Chillemi is an author to follow.

Harmful Intent: The Veronica "Ronnie" Ingels/Dawson Hughes Trilogy, Book One by [Chillemi, Nike N.]


What fun!  A crime fiction book!

Chillemi brings to life the characters in her books, and Ronni Ingels is one to root for.

Crushed at the betrayal of her best friend forever and her LOVED husband's compromising "love," Ronni has another tsunami wave hitting her when she's the lead suspect in said "loved" husband's murder. Fortunately, Ronni is nothing if not an excellent, hands-on detective. From Ronni's funny comments, thoughts, and detective skills to Deputy Sergeant Dawson Hughes strong personality and by-the-books work, these two make an excellent couple of detectives. 

Exexpected packages, blind alleys that lead no where, a stubborn detective who irritates the other constantly, and a smidgen of interest in the other all make for a draw-you-in book that will have you reading long after you should have been in bed. Nike's characters are strong, likeable, and often times quirky and funny, who you'll root for--or hate, her plots are twisted and interesting, and the danger and grit are the real-meat of any true crime fictionistic reader. 

Highly recommended!

Great review, Carole. I was privileged to be one of Nike's critique partners on this one. Absolutely love it. I think she did a superb job. And to think she was told she couldn't do it. Glad she didn't listen!
