Indie Author Review: Vows to Kill by Mark Capell

Title: Vows to Kill
Author: Mark Capell
Genre: Thriller
Publish Date: October 2012
Personal Rating: 5 Stars

About the Book:
Detective Inspector Lee Eyre receives an email: 'I WILL KILL YOU ON YOUR WEDDING DAY.'

Is it a sick practical joke? Or an earnest threat? Who sent him the anonymous e-mail?

Lee is about to marry Lucy. They only met six months ago. But in the gusts of this whirlwind romance, Lee has avoided telling Lucy about his past. That past is the stuff of nightmares - gangsters with grudges, an obsessive ex-wife, and a mysterious stranger who can provide the link to a murder investigation that went tragically wrong.

Despite strange recurring dreams, Lee's approach has been to bury his head in the sand, pretending the past didn't happen. But that's not an option now.

Lee must investigate a crime that hasn't yet happened - his own murder - to prevent it from happening. But that investigation is complicated by twists and turns. It will cause Lee to question why he's a police officer and whether he can marry his perfect woman.

Will Lee and Lucy have a future? Or will it be obliterated by Lee's past?

My Review:
Get ready to get hooked on this book from page one. I was slow in reading it due to personal life that kept me busy and sure wished I would have read it when I didn’t have anything going on. It was so fast paced and kept you going.

I liked how the author clipped the stories together in the beginning and the finally pieces everything together at the end. As I was reading, I kept thinking back to the first few chapters and wondered how and where they would fit. It was amazing when it all came together.

This thriller does contain some romance. I liked that aspect as well. Softened it up a little for the female reader in me. Men, however, should not think it was all gushy because it definitely was not. There is a visit to a strip club :)  Lee and Lucy are a perfect couple, despite what is happening. Lucy is very strong and I think that is what makes the relationship work.

I highly recommend this book to any reader who loves a thrill. Be prepared to be blown away!
And again, this is why I read the Indie Authors.
