A WRITER TO WATCH!

MY REVIEW:

Hurricane Crimes

by

Chrys Fey


            No way out in the face of an oncoming hurricane, Beth Kennedy does what she can to wait out the storm in safety at home. A car accident outside her house requires that she act and that is when the tale deepens in Chrys Fey's Hurricane Crimes. 

          Chrys Fey does a magnificent job of starting her short story with the tension needed to hook and keep the reader reading. Her descriptive prose puts the reader with Beth as the dangerous winds escalate, the water rises, and darkness falls.

          I enjoyed this short tale of romance and suspense with the strong female character of Beth Kennedy, and the handsome Donovan Goldwyn, who is on the run from the police. He is a temptation hard to resist, and then a threat hard to escape, not with a hurricane blowing the trees down and lifting the roof from its moorings.

          A talented writer with a new tale to be released in 2014, Chrys Fey, is a  writer to watch!

                                         Hurricane Crimes


After her car breaks down, Beth Kennedy is forced to stay in Florida, the target of Hurricane Sabrina. She stocks up supplies, boards up windows, and hunkers down to wait out the storm, but her plan unravels when she witnesses a car accident. Risking her life, she braves the winds to save the driver. Just when she believes they are safe, she finds out the man she saved could possibly be more dangerous than the severe weather. 

Donovan Goldwyn only wanted to hide from the police, but the hurricane shoved his car into a tree. Now he's trapped with a beautiful woman while the evidence that can prove his innocence to a brutal crime is out there for anyone to find.

As Hurricane Sabrina wreaks havoc, Beth has no other choice but to trust Donovan to stay alive. But will she survive, or will she become another hurricane crime?


 About Chrys Fey:


Chrys Fey is the author of the short stories--The Summer Bride and Fallen. She created the blog Write with Fey to offer aspiring writers advice and inspiration. She lives in Florida where she is ready to battle the next hurricane that comes her way.

Next year, Chrys Fey will be coming out with her second romantic-suspense eBook, 30 Seconds.

In 2004, three hurricanes hit Florida in the space of four weeks: Charley, Frances, and Ivan. Then in 2008, Tropical Storm Fay visited. She actually made landfall four times. These storms greatly influenced Hurricane Crimes.

I started writing Hurricane Crimes on Christmas morning 2011. I had just finished reading a book set during a blizzard and pondered the fact that I had never been in a snow storm because I live in Florida, so the idea to write a story that really focuses on a hurricane immediately became my goal. Although I wanted Hurricane Crimes to be a romance, I didn't want it to be a typical romance. Thus, I created Donovan, a sexy and passionate man who may be a murderer.

I am a huge advocate of domestic violence awareness, and with Hurricane Crimes I had the opportunity to give one of my passions to Beth Kennedy, a tough woman who is a self-defense instructor.

  9. At first I thought the book would be about crimes and murders. Being a criminal lawyer I found myself attracted to the title of the book but only to find that it is more or less about natural disaster, "hurricane". After going through the reviews I have decided to read it. Thanks a lot Chrys Fey for the information about it.

    Best Regards,
    Kristo
