My Review

5 stars

When Rebecca Brown was four years old her parents were killed in a car accident. Rebecca and her older brother and sister go to live with their grandparents at Tarasay in the Scottish Highlands. The kids are raised essentially isolated and with a limited amount of love.

In North Carolina we meet Keller Baye. His father is about to die of lethal injection from a failed bank robbery. Kaller has his own issues when he grew up but he decides to head to England after his father’s death. There Rebecca meets Keller and falls for him. But there is more to Keller than she knows.

This is an amazing thriller. It starts slowly and builds up steam as you go along. Rebecca and Keller have had challenges in their lives but when they meet Rebecca thinks she has found her love. Unfortunately Keller has some serious issues and is not looking for a loving relationship with Rebecca. He has hunted her down specifically and is planning on killing her.

I love how you go around with this story but learn that both Keller and Rebecca have a bigger connection. I was wrapped in this story from the start. I agree with others when they said the book ends rather abruptly but in this case I think it is the perfect ending.

If you like psychological thrillers look no further. This is an amazing story and one that you don’t want to miss. I can’t wait for more from Jenny Morton Potts.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Meet the Author:
 

BOYD TAYLOR lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and their Havanese dog Toby. Necessities is the fourth novel in the Donnie Ray Cuinn series. In a former life, Boyd was a lawyer and a corporate officer. A native of Temple, Texas, he graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in government and an LL.B. from the law school.

Boyd’s first novel “Hero” was prescient in its story about fake news. His second novel, “The Antelope Play,” dealt with drug trafficking in the Texas Panhandle, an unfortunately accurate forecast. The third, “The Monkey House”, involved commercial development of a large green space in the center of Austin, all too familiar to Austin residents. Whether his upcoming novel “Necessities” predicts future events with the accuracy of the earlier books remains to be seen.

My Review

4 stars

Donnie Cuinn is back but it has been some time since Hero. He has pursued a degree in law and is not working for a prestigious firm in Velda. But he hates his job and is suffering from his time in Mexico. He ends up fired and moves to the small town of Antelope City where he starts his own firm.

A local land owner comes in for representation. It seems that the government and his family are pushing him to sign over his water rights. Donnie’s prior firm represents the other side and is trying to push for a signature too. Something doesn’t seem right and as Donnie starts to dig into this case he discovered a lot more happening behind the scenes.

I really enjoyed this story. It does start out slow but the further into the story you go the faster the pace. Donnie is suffering from what happened in Mexico. As we follow along with the present case we learn what happened in Mexico. I did not see that one coming.

This story has several characters that you will either like or not in the beginning but the more you read about them your opinion changes. This is a great story and a perfect follow up to Hero. I can’t wait to see what happens to Donnie in The Monkey House.
