5 of 5 Stars to Bloodstream by Tess Gerritsen

Bloodstream
by Tess Gerritsen
In April came the rains. In August came the heat. In November came the horror. It’s paying a return visit. The small resort of Tranquillity, Maine, seems like the perfect spot for Dr Claire Elliot to shelter her adolescent son, Noah, from the temptations of the big city and the traumatic memory of his father's death. Claire's hopeful that she can earn the trust of the town as she builds a new practice. But all her plans unravel with the onset of winter, when an outbreak of teenage violence, far more deadly than anything she has encountered in the city, erupts in the local school. In trying to find a medical explanation for this murderous epidemic, Claire stumbles upon an insidious evil which has blighted the town's past and threatens its future. Terrified that Noah too is at risk, she must prove her theory before everything she loves is destroyed. 

Wow! This book was amazing! Really brilliant! Twists and turns everywhere and I never would have guessed the ending in a million years. So adventurous, mysterious and creepy. The first and only book I've ever read by this author. I should probably read more Tess Gerritsen novels if this one is anything to go by! I think her detective characters have a TV show or something. I really should do better Googling. Haha.

Anyway, this review is terrible if you like reviews where the reviewer just says what the book is about. I hate reviews like that and if you do too then you'll like this book review of mine because there's definitely no spoilers here! Just read this novel if you like biological intrigue and exciting suspense too!

Welcome to the Thinkerbeat Anthology Interview
Q: What inspired you to start publishing? A: I wrote my first story when I was really young. I used to sit with a typewriter and clunk away at the keys for hours. I’d make a lot of mistakes, but I kept trying. Later, I started sending stories out for publication. I got a lot of rejections, just like everyone does.
In college I studied the music business and learned about managing talent. I also played around with the idea of becoming a computer programmer, but my creative side won out and I spent a number of years working in the music business.
Down the road, I got an offer to write a children’s book for a publisher. I thought, well, 500 words, how hard can that be? It took me months to finish it. You spend more time describing the illustrations on the page than you do putting words on the page. The staff editor was never happy and we disagreed on a lot of things. But I learned from him. I also kept in mind that if I didn’t play along, I’d ne…

Guest Post from Author Samantha Tonge on Her New Novella

How to Get Hitched in Ten Days is my first novella and the story just flew onto the page. It is a tale of friendship, unrequited love and about turning around the challenges that occasionally strike us all as we go through life. Mikey helps the boyfriend of his best friend and flat mate, Jasmine, turn around a disastrous Valentine’s Day proposal.
Early reviews are coming in and I am thrilled that many readers are reacting to Mikey in the way I intended – they all love him and wish he was part of their lives.As one reviewer,Coffeeholic Bookworm says:
“ I want some Mikey in my life! Mikey isn’t your typical hero. He’s soft, fluffy, sensitive and yummy. His friendship with Jasmine was admirable. He’s a keeper
Do you have a best friend? Someone you can turn to in your hour of need?
I think I created this character because, apart from my lovely husband, I don’t. And sometimes life gets difficult. You don’t necessarily want to burden your family or partner with your problems. You simply want a…

Finally! A Cover for Bedevilled That I Like

Bedevilled was my first novel. I wrote it back in 2009 in two months. Then I stupidly rewrote it to death, but I came back to its original version and completed all edits on it. The one thing I've never been able to do is find a suitable cover for Bedevilled. Until now. It's ace. I like it. Finally happy with it. I'll put up previous versions of this book's covers at the end of this post, but first, here's the newest...


"If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, then what of the wrath incurred by the devil herself?"
Bubbles is a woman in trouble. Life on Earth just became Hell. Quite literally seeing as how there's escaped minions from the underworld to deal with. And to think it all started with a blind date. Or did it? There's more to that Godly looking man than meets the eye, and Bubbles is intent on finding out just how divine He truly is.
And here's the full paperback cover...

I think this new one is much better than its immediate predeces…
