#NewBook: The Edge of Too Late by Jan Sikes @JanSikes3 #ghostsuspense #actionadventureromance #harborpointeseries @StoryEmpire
Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well.
Today, I’m delighted to announce the release of the fifth book in the Harbor Pointe Series: The Edge of Too Late. I’ve read every novella in the series, and I love them all! You can find the series HERE.
This entertaining novella from Jan Sikes has it all: Romance, ghosts, a crazy man, a dangerous womaniser, and lots of tension in the midst of a beguiling, beautiful setting.
The story starts out with a deceptively slow pace and allows the tension to mount gradually until it explodes in the last 30% of the book. And the narrative is full of wonderfully descriptive writing, which pulls you right in to the read. Below are a couple of lines that stood out for me …
‘When she pressed the shutter button, the doe raised her head and froze, leaves dangling from her mouth.’ … This detailed description brings the scene alive so well, and I loved it.
‘He’d never been so desperate for news. Nor so fearful of it.’ … One of the best descriptions of fear and angst, which shows rather than tells the emotional turmoil of the character.
While this story contains violence, most of it happens off page, thus making this a fun, tension-filled read with a touch of the supernatural, and a young couple in love, without being at all traumatic. This is a gripping tale that has something for everyone, and it gets 5 stars from me, which means it’s good enough to lure any reader into pulling an all-nighter to finish it. Go and buy this book! And while you’re at it, check out other works by the versatile Jan Sikes.
