Johnny Delarosa is back in the third installment of the “Delarosa Thriller Series.” Once again, an action filled ride from start to finish.
Former football player, Stan Shelton, needs Johnny’s help. Someone is blackmailing the man who comes off larger than life to most others. He may not be telling all the truth, and that’s going to put Johnny and crew at risk.
Is Stan’s only crime hiring an escort? When a detective starts to investigate, Johnny is trying to beat him to the truth. The heat is on.
The past will also play a part for Johnny. Something he’d never forgotten, is coming back to haunt him. Clever twist. As always, the series draws you in and doesn’t let go until the very end. I always look forward to more “Delarosa” adventures. Well written characters, with a hard edge private investigator, former cop, Johnny is your man when you need someone to protect you.
Thank you David Stever

"I've driven the route between Vinita and Welch more times than I can count, more times than I've visited my childhood home. Each trip is slightly brighter and louder than the last, to a place where it takes time for my eyes and ears to adjust. Coming here, to where they were last seen, isn't something I'm able to resist. I'm drawn. Obsessed. Manic. Sometimes I come up the driveway and think of the five of them here. Danny, Kathy, Ashley, Lauria, and Jeremy. Sometimes I imagine I am them. But as my senses adjust to deep, dark country, I light a smoke there on the Freeman property and imagine that I am the killer or killers who struck the first flame. I blow out my match, adding a pinch of sulfur to the pastures surrounding in the same way as Ashely blew out her birthday candles."..........
This a true crime story. It’s December 30, 1999. Ashley Freeman and Lauria Bible are having a girls birthday night sleepover at Ashley’s home. By morning the trailer has burned to the ground, and the girls are nowhere to be found. The rural Oklahoma town is left without answers.
Rumors abound. The clues useless. Years later, the author, Jax Miller, starts to look into this unsolved case. A horrific tale of secrets and crime, possibly covered up by the very people they were supposed to trust.? A mother who refused to give up. Families and friends and the rumors that followed for years, probably still do. Someone, somewhere had to know the truth.
The real question is where are Ashley and Lauria? Dead or alive?
The author takes you through this tragic line of events, and provides some ideas to what may have happened and why. A very interesting read. What I really liked was the author presented them as real. She presented their lives leading up to, and after the fire. The author did not sensationalize the story. The facts wore on her soul, and she wanted to help them find answers. From the first page, told with such detail, you feel yourself step into the story beside the author.

"The email he'd read earlier, had been from Houston Miller, his former Platoon Leader. It swirled around his mind and filled his chest with excitement. A one year walk across the U.S. to raise awareness for the staggering veteran suicide rate. To fund a non profit organization that would focus on preventing the outrageous number of veterans committing suicide every single day. And Houston has convinced him, a leg amputee, to become part of the journey. It would start a new chapter of Reid's life and be his rite of passage."......
Reid was a soldier. Now he’s heading to Oak Creek to join his former soldier and friend, Houston, on an awareness walk for veterans. It’s called “Heroes Rise,”a veterans suicide awareness project. Along the way Reid is going to have to deal with his scars, as well as the scars of others. It’s a lost dog that puts him on a different path.
Keira has trust issues. She’s work as a teacher, and also volunteers at the local dog rescue. So when she meets Reid, the sparks fly. Are they both too damaged to have anything meaningful?
A wonderful, well told contemporary story. As a mother of a veteran, awareness to veteran suicide and PTSD issues is so important.
Will Keira and Reid bond over the rescued dog? Any story that has a dog in it is always a great read for me. There’s a little danger lurking, along with friendship and love.
This is the 3rd in the “Oak Creek” series, but a stand-alone. I really enjoy this authors work. Check out her first two in this series as well as her other work. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you BK Stubblefield

Cassidy was just 7 years old when she survived a fire that killed her little friend. Fast forward to high school and Cass is known as “fire girl”, unable to escape her tragic past. Did she really start that fire? They say she did.
Now in high school, others are cruel, especially the dead girls cousin, Melody. When Melody disappears, Cassidy feels she may be blamed for it. She enlists her closest friend, Gideon, to help her.
Just when Cassidy has it figured out, it becomes a very dangerous situation. Cassidy has secrets she can’t share, not even with Gideon.
Where is Melody? The story was very captivating. I wanted to know if Cassidy was really who she was portraying herself to be. A thoroughly suspenseful tale!
