Review:

Sisters Jackson and Bush craftily combine suspense with the paranormal in this rich sequel to 2009's bestselling Wicked Game. Laura Adderley, a nurse at a coastal Oregon hospital and a member of the psychic sisterhood of the Colony, is uneasily pregnant with her philandering ex-husband's child. Serial killer Justice Turnbull is hunting members of the Colony, so when he escapes from a nearby psychiatric hospital, Laura fears for her own life and her unborn child's. She begs the help of Harrison Frost, a reporter writing a story on Justice's escape and his connection to the Colony, and soon Harrison's undeniable attraction to her and desire to protect her outweigh his longing to follow the story. The affable protagonists maintain their individual identities as their romance sizzles to life, and several subplots add depth to this somewhat lengthy but deftly plotted and enticing read. (June) --Publishers Weekly

It's been two years since Laura (Lorelie) Adderley has heard psychopathic serial killer Justice Turnbull's voice in her head. His sibilant whispers suddenly scratch at her mind, and she learns that he has escaped and is on his way back to Discovery Bay. It's clear that the gifted women of her family cloistered at Siren Song lodge--or anyone who gets in the way--are no longer safe, and it's only a matter of time before the slaughter begins again. As the bodies pile up, Laura finally reaches out to journalist Harrison Frost, but will it be in time and is he the "truth seeker" whom her sister Cassandra says she needs? VERDICT Once again, siblings Jackson and Bush have teamed up on a chilling, slightly paranormal thriller that continues the story begun in Wicked Games. Terrifying, grim, and downright creepy, this is one that may give you second thoughts about visiting the Oregon coast (sorry, Oregon) and is definitely one you don't want to read alone at night. Best-selling authors in their own right, Jackson lives in the Pacific Northwest, and Bush lives in Oregon. --Library Journal
