Publishers Weekly Review of ICEHAVEN #dystopian #paranormal #Canauthors

I am absolutely thrilled to have received this wonderful review from Publishers Weekly for ICEHAVEN (Sum of all Tears – Book 1)!

“Crime writer Cresswell (Deadly Shadow) and romance author Chester (Tied Together) successfully step into the postapocalyptic genre with this tale of good intentions and terrible results. August Madison is in the audience for the unveiling of her father’s technology to fix Earth’s warming climate when the auditorium comes crashing down on her. When she next opens her eyes, she sees nothing but snow and ice. Soon she learns that she’s somehow come back to life several weeks after the disaster—and that her father’s intended climate repair has instead turned the entire planet to frozen tundra. With new friends, she fights to survive, battling both the weather and other factions looking for supplies. Meanwhile, Coast Guard cadet Brandon Church, a childhood friend of August’s, is stranded with his crew and their fortunately well-stocked ship in the middle of the frozen ocean. They’re rescued by financier Graysen Marx, who helped fund the cooling project, and taken to Liberty, a prototype biodome Graysen created that’s now the only chance of survival on Earth. August and her crew eventually make their way to Liberty, hoping to find peace and safety there, but power goes to Graysen’s head, leading him to make deadly choices. The survivors’ fear and desperation will keep readers engrossed from the beginning. Fans of apocalyptic stories looking for a change from tales of melting ice caps will enjoy this cooler treat.” (BookLife)

DAS EXPERIMENT (ein Whitney Steel Roman): Romantik-Thriller (German Edition) is now available in eBook and paperback!
“DAS EXPERIMENT ist ein zutiefst emotionaler Romantik-Thriller, der kühn beginnt und seine Leser bis zur allerletzten Seite in seinem Bann hält.” [NY-Times-Bestseller-Autorin Dianna Love]

Whitney Steel, Enthüllungsreporterin aus Florida, hat lange genug im Schatten ihres legendären Vaters gelebt. Um sich zu beweisen, muss sie die nächste große Story finden.
Und sie hat sie gefunden.
Doch wird sie ihr nun zum Verhängnis?
Nachdem sie einen Hinweis bekommen hat, der zum ersten geklonten Menschen der Welt führt – einem Mädchen – schwört sich Whitney, die Wahrheit ans Licht zu bringen. Allerdings hat das Durchstöbern der Fakten gefährliche Folgen; darunter Todesdrohungen und Mord.
Als sie beinahe getötet und im letzten Moment von Blake Neely gerettet wird, einem verdeckt arbeitendem FBI-Special-Agent, lässt dieser sie um keinen Preis zwischen sich und sein Ziel kommen – zumindest nicht am Anfang.
Beide sind gefangen in einem tödlichen Spiel zwischen einem von genetischer Perfektion besessenen Milliardär, seinem nach Vergeltung dürstenden Auftragskiller und einem kolumbianischen Drogenboss, der direkt nach seiner Entlassung aus dem Gefängnis fest entschlossen ist, sich für den Tod seines Zwillingsbruders vor über einem Jahrzehnt an Blake zu rächen …
Können sie ein unschuldiges Kind retten, bevor es zu spät ist?
Im Angesicht schwerer Entscheidungen mit tödlichen Konsequenzen, realisiert Whitney schon bald, dass eine Story manchmal mehr ist als bloß eine Story.

Now available at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Google Play and other fine stores.
