This is the first of four currently published suspense novels in the Sherry Moore Series. This first novel introduces Sherry as she helps her co-star, Lt Kelly O’Shaunisy track the disappearances of young women from the boardwalk area in New Jersey.
I read all four of these novels several years ago. I should say I immersed myself in Sherry’s world as written by Mr. Shuman. He is outstanding writing novels with a female lead. However, the leads are only as good as the suspense portion of the novels and the suspense is spine tingling in all the novels.
I’m a so-so reader of suspense novels but this series is one of the best I’ve read. It definitely made me a fan of Mr. Shuman. As a matter of fact, I became such a fan that I was wondering why there hadn’t been any new releases in this series for a while. I understand it takes awhile to write a novel, but I was getting impatient. It had been over two years for crying out loud!!
I couldn’t find any new information on his website but he did have a “contact me” tab. What else could I do but send Mr. Shuman an email and ask him what was going on. I mean seriously, I was hooked on this series and the last book didn’t have a definite conclusion so…
He didn’t think I was was some weird stalker and sent me a very nice response. Mr. Shuman’s publisher was no longer interested in the series due to the economic situation. (I’m gonna go on a bit of a rant here. This is why readers are flocking to indie authors. Yes, not all indie authors are as good as others but my gosh, this series is amazing.) I was assured he wasn’t done with the series yet, but had been working on another novel. Well, darn it, now I was gonna have to read the new novel when it comes out and wait for more Sherry Moore. He is in the process of deciding whether to self-publish or not.
If you like a smart, somewhat flawed (and I’m not talking blind), character with lots of mystery, suspense and even a hint of romance, try this series. The writing, characters, and storyline are excellent.
The Kindle edition might seem a bit steep at $6.83 but it is worth the price to me. The paper back edition is priced regularly at $7.19
