SK Thomas

Pawned Queen

The Queen is one of, if not the most powerful chess piece on the board. But her strength amounts to little more than a pawn if she is caught by the enemy.

"Jack?" Melissa yelled out in question after she heard a knock on the door. No answer came. The floor creaked when she knew someone else was in the house. "Jack?" Her voice shook as terror crept in asking her to play. Every stranger has a purpose and the game is just beginning so take a step in any direction, if you dare.

Melissa leaves her hometown of Tupelo to start anew in the city of Barrington escaping haunts of her childhood. Little did she know a run-in with Max, a police officer who doesn't play by any set of rules, would change her future. Her best friend, Alice vanishes and Max is the main suspect leaving Melissa insistent to find the truth. She teams up with her husband, John and a detective named Jack for an investigation to find out what has happened to Alice. As the game continues, promises disintegrate into a pile of deceit and lies. This leaves Melissa to question who she can trust as she desperately searches for answers because in reality, it's not a game at all.

This novella is fast paced thriller that will keep you on your toes and wanting more.

I love the mystery genre and I couldn't wait until I got to the end of the book.  The author lures the reader  into the book and getting to  trying to figure out the mystery.  Several times I thought I had solved the mystery but boy, was I wrong.  Just when you think you have it solved, the author has you turning the page for another twist and turn. The author will have your eyes glued to the pages and once you think you have the mystery solved, you may be just sitting there thinking about it all.  Ms. Thomas wrote an interesting, page turning story that I will most likely read again later on.  Can't wait to read the next book from this talented author.

I was given a complimentary copy of PAWNED QUEEN from the author, SK Thomas for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
