The Night Caller
by John Lutz
Publisher: Kensington
Publication date: August 6, 2013
Genre: Adult Suspense Thriller 
Pre-order*: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository
*purchase supports this blog


When he discovers his daughter's corpse in a deserted beachfront bungalow, devastated Ezekiel Cooper vows to find her murderer. The former NYPD detective doesn't know there have been other victims, women who seemingly had nothing in common, aside from a grisly fate. Then Coop crosses paths with Cara Callahan, who's determined to lure her sister's killer by transforming herself into someone just like her. But Cara's plan may be working too well. Because lurking in the shadows, just as Coop feared, the Night Caller watches her every move. . .preparing to strike again.
While the author is new to me, this suspenseful thriller sounds like it has all the elements I love; a serial killer, a former officer, and a fearless woman looking to trap her sister's killer..oh yeah! perfect summer storm read! 


The Sorority
by Tamara Thorne
Publisher: Kensington
Publication date: August 27, 2013
Genre: NA Paranormal
Pre-order*: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository 
*purchase supports this blog


They are the envy of every young woman—and the fantasy of every young man. An elite sisterhood of Greenbriar University’s best and brightest, their members are the most powerful girls on campus—and the most feared…
Eve- She’s the perfect pledge. A sweet, innocent, golden-haired cheerleader, Eve has so much to gain by joining Gamma Eta Pi—almost anything she desires. But only a select few can enter the sorority’s inner circle—or submit to its code of blood, sacrifice, and sexual magic. Is Eve willing to pay the price?
Merilynn- Ever since childhood, Merilynn has had a sixth sense about things to come. She’s blessed with uncanny powers of perception—and cursed with unspeakable visions of unholy terror. Things that corrupt the souls of women, and crush the hearts of men. Things that can drive a girl to murder, suicide, or worse…
Samantha- Journalism major Sam Penrose is tough, tenacious—and too curious for her own good. She’s determined to unearth the truth about the sorority. But the only way to expose this twisted sisterhood is from within…
First..I have a thing for university, boarding school and elite, exclusive clubs so that caught my eye. Then the whole sisterhood thing with blood sacrifice  magic and sex got me!  It has a creepy vibe to it and I am oh so curious!


What are you Waiting on?

The second book sounds familiar. Think I recall another series with this title, but I never read it...although it's been so long I cannot be sure. Hate when that happens! Hope you enjoy these once you get to read them!

Here's my WoW

Have a GREAT day!

I, too, have a thing for boarding schools with elite, exclusive clubs. However, I'm not crazy about split narratives. Though, as always, I'm sure it all depends on the execution!

"Sexual Magic" really caught my attention;) I love the sound of both books, but The Sorority is definitely going on my Goodreads list. Thanks for suggesting! Here's my WOW.

Whoa. The Sorority sounds AMAZING Kimba! I need it to be August immediately. I'm with you on boarding schools and elite clubs, add in some sex magic and sacrifice and I'm sold a thousand times over. I will be stalking NetGalley hoping Kensington puts that book up and I get approved so I can get my hands on it asap!

I hadn't heard of the Sorority yet, but it sounds really interesting. I'm a sucker for elite clubs, too, so I'll definitely be adding this to my TBR. Great pick!

Of the two listed, the second catches my eyes the most....though I'm a bit curious if from that description it'll be one of those that crosses the line of what we consider YA lit to be. We shall see....great picks though!

aah it's New Adult so yes it shall cross that line!

Kensington made the mistake of auto approving me on NetGalley, and now I'm just tempted to download all their titles. ;) These both sound great! I especially can't wait to find out more about The Night Caller. Awesome picks, Kimba.

I'm also auto-approved. I have to apply great restraint. LOL
