Here’s the set-up:

A suspense novel interwoven with threads of romance and paranormal.

Imagine discovering everything you believe about yourself to be a lie. And that the truth could stir a killer from his lair.

Following the death of the woman she believed to be her mother, 28-year-old Naomi Waters learns from a malicious aunt that she is not only adopted, but the product of a brutal rape that left her birth mother, Mary Rose Francis, a teenager of Micmac ancestry, in a coma for 8 months.

Dealing with a sense of betrayal and loss, but with new purpose in her life, Naomi vows to track down Mary Rose’s attackers and bring them to justice. She places her story in the local paper, asking for information from residents who might remember something of the case that has been cold for nearly three decades.

She is about to lose hope that her efforts will bear fruit, when she gets an anonymous phone call. Naomi has attracted the attention of one who remembers the case well.

But someone else has also read the article in the paper. The man whose DNA she carries.

And he has Naomi in his sights.

Here’s the set-up: 

 

 

Raised in an atmosphere of violence and unpredictability, Ellen and Gail Morgan have banded together, survivors of a booze-fertilized battleground, forming a fierce united front against an often cold and uncaring world. When their parents are killed in a car crash, Ellen becomes the mother figure for Gail.When fifteen years later Gail is brutally raped and murdered in her shabby New York basement apartment, practically on the eve of her big breakthrough as a singer, Ellen is inconsolable. Rage at her younger sister’s murder has nearly consumed her. So when her work as a psychologist wins her an appearance on the evening news, Ellen seizes the moment. Staring straight into the camera, she challenges the killer to come out of hiding: “Why don’t you come after me? I’ll be waiting for you.”Phone calls flood the station, but all leads go nowhere. The police investigation seems doomed to failure. Then it happens: a note, written in red ink, slipped under the windshield wipers of her car, ‘YOU’RE IT.’ Ellen has stirred the monster in his lair … and the hunter has become the hunted!

One Reviewer Notes: 

 

“Joan Hall Hovey hits another one out of the park with NOWHERE TO HIDE. The Canadian Mistress of Suspense brings her readers another taut, psychological, page-turner. This is an incredible read that will keep you up well past your bedtime late at night. It did to me. A book that is very hard to put down.“…The author has a remarkable ability to turn up the heat on the suspense. With great characterizations and dialogue, Hovey writes clearly and concisely with short chapters (a feature I really like) that prompts the reader to keep on turning pages.”

–James A. Anderson, Author

Night Corridor
by Joan Hall Hovey

Don’t have a Kindle? Get yours here.

Night Corridor by Joan Hall Hovey was a FANTASTIC read! Although the words, suspense, mystery, and thriller come to mind, I must add Cliffhanger, Cloak and Dagger, and Chilling to the list. The story will leave you on the edge of your seat
–Stacey Keen, BookBuzz



Here’s the set-up: 
 

After nine years in Bayshore mental institution, once called the lunatic asylum, Caroline Hill is finally being released.

There will be no one to meet her. Her parents who brought her here…are dead.

They have found her a room in a rooming house, a job washing dishes in a restaurant. She will do fine, they said. But no one told that women in St. Simeon are already dying at the hands of a vicious predator. One, an actress who lived previously in her building. And others. And now, as Caroline struggles to survive on the outside, she realizes someone is stalking her.

But who will believe her? She’s a crazy woman after all.

Then, one cold winter’s night on her way home from her job, a man follows and is about to assault her when a stranger intercedes.

A stranger who hides his face and whispers her name.


One Reviewer Notes:


Night Corridor by Joan Hall Hovey was a FANTASTIC read! Although the words, suspense, mystery, and thriller come to mind, I must add Cliffhanger, Cloak and Dagger, and Chilling to the list. The story will leave you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know who the mystery man is, and also wanting more chapters, more of the story, I couldn’t stop reading. The story reminded me a movie I might see on the Lifetime channel, and Night Corridor is that good that it should be made into a movie. If you are looking for a suspenseful, riveting read, Night Corridor

“Ms. Hovey is a veteran mystery novelist, and although this is the first of her books I’ve read, I will be purchasing her previous novels. Her personalization of the characters is so superb that you feel as if you are the character. Easy to follow, and easy to read, yet full of shock and wow, Ms. Hovey I am impressed!!” will not disappoint.

–Stacey Keen, BookBuzz

KND Kindle Free Book Alert: Dead Girl Walking tops Three (3) More Brand New Freebies This Morning! plus … Joan Hall Hovey’s Bloody Dagger Award winner Chill Waters (Today’s Sponsor)


“Seventeen-year-old Amber Borden has a lousy sense of direction—so lousy that she takes a wrong turn when returning from her near-death experience. She ends up in the body of the most popular girl in school, who has just tried to commit suicide. Can a girl who can’t even navigate the halls of Halsey High discover the secrets of her new identity and find her way back to her own life? 

That’s the set-up for the American Library Association 2009 Popular Paperback for Young Adults title this morning’s latest additions to our 300+ Kindle Free Book Alert listings, but we think there will be plenty of grown-up citizens of Kindle Nation who will give it a read too….

But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor
 

What could be scarier than retreating to the safest, quietest spot you know, only to be stalked by a crazed killer?

“…Joan Hall Hovey is a female Stephen King… a stunning, multi-layered, modern-day gothic, told with the unforgettable style and grace of a true master of suspense…” –Rendezvous Magazine

No wonder Chill Waters is the winner of Bloody Dagger Award.


Chill Waters
by Joan Hall Hovey

Immerse yourself in chilling suspense”



Here’s the set-up:


WHAT IF EVIL VISITED THE ONE PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL THE MOST SAFE?

Following the breakup of her marriage, Rachael retreats to the old beachhouse in Jenny’s Cove, where she once lived with her grandmother. It is the one place where she had always felt safe and loved. Devasted and lost, Rachael longs for the simplicity of her childhood.

But Jenny’s Cove has changed. From the moment of Rachael’s arrival, a man watches. He has already killed, and mercilessly will do so again. Soon Rachael becomes a target for a vicious predator whose own dark and twisted past forms a deadly bond between them.

And sets her on a collision course with a crazed killer.


 

What the Reviewers Say
“Woven with an uncanny magic, CHILL WATERS is rich in sensory imagery and dense with the darkness that lies in the heart of a madman. Hovey creates a rich cast of characters, each uniquely realized and memorable. At age forty-five, heroine Rachael provides a refreshingly mature viewpoint who still manages to grow and change with the flow of the novel. She has raised her children and fled a failed marriage to take control of her life only to confront a madman.”
–Cynthia Penn, MIDWEST REVIEW  

Rachael is a magnetically likeable heroine, and Peter Gardner fills his muscular frame well as her sleuthing counterpart concerned about his student. Rachael’s transformation from walking wounded to feisty survivor will leave you cheering.”
–Kristin J. Johnson, author and Vine Voice

“… Joan Hall Hovey has penned as good a thriller as I have ever read…a superb tale of terror and suspense that puts her right up there with the likes of Sandford and Patterson…”
–Ingrid Taylor, Small Press Review
