My Review:  August 2013  ~ Review Copies ~

Secrets of a Dangerous Woman by P.M. Terrell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First I want to thank the author P.M. Terrell for giving me this book for an honest review. This book is an incredible story that has so many plot twists you can't put this book down because you basically have got to know what happens next. A thriller filled with strong characters that will keep you awestruck, its action packed. Reading this book has me wanting to read all the Black Swamp Mystery series. I will have to go back and read Exit 22, Vicki's Key and Dylan’s Song is next, most definitely on my tbr list.

    Who did your cover? The model almost reminds me of a young Drew Barrymore look.

    1. Hi, Catherine! Thank you! I'm glad you like the cover. The model is actually a photographer in western NC who took the photograph of herself. :) I fell in love with the red hair - it's a trademark of Brenda Carnegie's, the "Dangerous Woman"...
