The Review:

This is by far one of the best books I have ever read. Written with great insight, I literally could not put it down. Blood Noir is a solidly written story with depth, intensity and strength much akin to that of James Patterson and Dan Brown. The writing is gripping, mesmerizing, exciting and compelling. The story line is so realistic you’ll feel as if you have been grabbed by the collar and jerked into the middle of a mystery so terrifying you’ll hope you’re dreaming. The characters are written as if they are live, breathing human beings that might live next door, with an the ending will leave you breathless! Do not miss this book!

  1. Rie, you are just not allow to write “The best book… ever”! Don’t you see that my TBR pile is now a mountain? Now, I have to read this one Blood Noir too, and this might be the one that makes the whole thing collapse on my head 😀


  2. I just wanted to say thank you for making my morning, Rie.

    My morning started out with tenants who wanted to rework payment schedules and my neighbor across the hall had a leaking bathroom ceiling. Oh, the joys of being a property manager. The crazy never ends. *head desk*

    At least you made it better.

    Blessed Be! 🙂


  3. Thanks everyone. I just loved it and couldn’t say enough good things about Jesse’s writing! Sorry, Magaly, but you will be glad you put all the others aside to read this one!
