This spellbinding new novel by the imaginative Carolyn Bowen will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page.

5 Stars: Premonition or An Omen Of Evil?

If you like Psychological Thrillers, this book needs to be your next read. I find myself reading the third book (easily read as a standalone) in the Sydney Jones series first. The prologue caught my immediate attention, as Sydney (main character) is experiencing a Native American dream state. The stage is set, is this a premonition or an omen of evil?

Sydney Jones rich Italian/Native American heritage and “dare devil” attitude mixed with her proven common-sense approach to life, gets her out of bed, dressed for another day in court (high-powered Atlanta Attorney), morning ritual with her son David as he prepares for school, and plans for their upcoming vacation in Barbados.

Their Caribbean vacation is going as planned. Sydney’s son David especially enjoys the laid-back life style, making new friends and deep-sea fishing. While relaxing, Sydney contemplates a career change, that might keep them on the island. While reading the local news, Sydney sees the headlines about a murder. The police found Judith Lambert from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, murdered in her penthouse suite. The woman posted to the front of the news release was Judith Garner, her old impostor friend. She wondered what she was doing on the island and who murdered her?

Sydney remembered what Daniela had said on their first trip to the island. “Locals didn’t commit most of the crime, but criminals attracted to this tourist destination”. She decided the island was safe enough for her and David to live on for the summer. Was it more or less safe than it was back home in Atlanta Georgia?

This fast-moving thriller will hold your attention, as no one is really safe. I invite you to read “One: Sydney Jones Series Book 3” by Carolyn M. Bowen. Mystery Author Carolyn M.
