    Oh my!!!! If you need some suspenseful novellas to read, these ones were fabulous. I couldn't stop reading/listening! My daughters were pretty enthralled with them as well. Wowsers! They all have their own twists and turns but I really enjoyed that all four were clean and I could continue listening when my daughters were in proximity. They even told me to not turn it off when I was listening. They told me they wanted to hear it all. Unfortunately, they only heard bits and pieces of it Oh my!!!!

They all have their own twists and turns but I really enjoyed that all four were clean and I could continue listening when my daughters were in proximity. They even told me to not turn it off when I was listening. They told me they wanted to hear it all. Unfortunately, they only heard bits and pieces of it as they were at school or being dropped off at different activities. And I was doing a combination of reading/listening with this collection. It was just so good that I wanted the stories to continue even though I was not able to sit and read. I have been reading Claire Poulson's books since I was a young teenager. He's a great author of mystery and suspense. Keeps me on the edge of my seat and his novella in this collection was no exception to that. I've read several of Traci Hunter Abramson and Stephanie Black's books before but Gregg Luke is a new to me author. One I'm looking forward to continuing reading his books. These four authors know this genre well and it shows throughout this whole collection! Grab it and be on the edge of your seat the whole time you're reading. Or if you're like me reading and listening! Hahahaha *shrugs* I couldn't help it. I really don't need more suspense in my life (just kidding, I have plenty of drama in my household of many children) but this book just kept pulling me in. Content: Clean. It's mystery/suspense so there are definitely many moments of peril. Kidnapping, attacks, gun fights (show down at the O K corral), and much more. But it was all written tastefully and not overly graphic. I received a copy from the publisher, Covenant Communications, via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own. Happy Reading!!!

    A book of four novellas by talented mystery/suspense/thriller writers is a book I couldn't pass up. I was already a fan of three of the authors (Abramson, Poulson, and Black) and now I'm a Gregg Luke fan. BRIDGE OF TRUST by Traci Hunter Abramson--a mother trying to get her son back from the boy's criminal father, her ex-husband. While Summer heals from injuries sustained while trying to keep her older son from being kidnapped, FBI agent Ethan Flanagan tracks down leads on the missing A book of four novellas by talented mystery/suspense/thriller writers is a book I couldn't pass up. I was already a fan of three of the authors (Abramson, Poulson, and Black) and now I'm a Gregg Luke fan. BRIDGE OF TRUST by Traci Hunter Abramson--a mother trying to get her son back from the boy's criminal father, her ex-husband. While Summer heals from injuries sustained while trying to keep her older son from being kidnapped, FBI agent Ethan Flanagan tracks down leads on the missing boy. As usual Traci Abramson kept me awake reading so I could see how this exciting story ends. CORRUPTED by Clair Poulson--a mother's daughter is missing and she has to convince the police that the girl's been kidnapped, not runaway from home. Police Lieutenant Jay Tanstall is asked to investigate some of his fellow officers and discovers some might not be on the straight and narrow. This story was interested because the readers know the truth of what's happening but not who's behind it until almost the end. INSIDIOUS by Gregg Luke--Andrew is a pole vaulter headed to the Olympics until his body suddenly betrays him and he ends up in the hospital clinging to life. Nothing the doctors do really helps and they can't figure out the cause. This story was scary especially when you find out what the diagnosis is and the cause. I loved that Andrew's wife, Taryn is a pharmacist and didn't let the main doctor treating her husband talk down to her. She knew her stuff and stood up to him. SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL FOR SOMETHING EVIL by Stephanie Black--Kate and Colby are newlywed's and live in a small town. Kate is an artist and takes a part-time job at The Treasure Chest, a store in town. I kept wondering when Kate was going to figure out that things weren't adding up. I thought I knew who the bad guy was but not the motive. It was really twisted. Another great suspense/thriller from Stephanie Black. I really liked all of these stories. They grabbed me in and wouldn't let go until I had finished them. I like novels over novellas but with a novella you can read it in an afternoon when you got some spare time or the kids are napping. I also loved the cover and how ingenious it is with the authors names going down while the title goes across. Thank you Covenant Communications via NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.

    I love suspense and was excited to hear that four of my favorite authors were collaborating on this book! I am glad that it didn't disappoint. I love full-length novels since I get a better feel for the characters, but I also love novellas because the stories move along quickly so they really hold my attention. I also love that I can read a story in one sitting, and have another one to look forward to the next time I sit down. I wanted to keep reading these, but also wanted the book to last.

    I’ll be upfront—I prefer novels to novellas. Novels give you more time with the characters and allow for bigger, more complicated plots. But since I’ve read previous books by these authors and enjoyed them, I was happy to get my hands on an ARC (thanks Covenant and Netgalley). The stories were enjoyable. There might be a few drawbacks to novellas, but there are also some perks.

    The first thing that I noticed from this collection of novellas is the creativity in the cover. The author's names running down the title all spaced with one letter in between. That is so creative and impressive. The geeky OCD side of me loved it. <3 This book is a collection of four suspense novellas. All are written by author's that I have previously read and enjoyed. It was easy for me to get into this book. Not all of them have a "happily-ever-after". I was OK with that though.

It was easy for me to get into this book. Not all of them have a "happily-ever-after". I was OK with that though. The story was interesting and life doesn't always turn out the way that we hope it will. I was swept away by the first story. A young mother's son was kidnapped by her ex-husband's criminal network. With the help of FBI agent Ethan Flanagan, they work to bring her son home and stop her husband from bothering her again. This was my favorite story of the four. The second book deals with police corruption and girls being kidnapped and sold. As a mother, it is terrifying and I was right there with the families hoping to get their daughter's back before it is too late. Gregg Luke's knowledge of disease is terrifying. I am saying this in a good way. I love to read his books because they are interesting and full of information. He knows how to teach and entertain at the same time. The last book was also a favorite of mine. Kate is gullible. She has information that is at odds with each other and has to try to figure out who to trust before it is too late. She has to piece information together to come to a terrifying truth. I would say that all of the stories are well done. This book is 372 pages long and it only took me a couple of days to read it. It is a clean book with a lot of suspense and a tiny bit of romance. There is also non-graphic violence. Source: I received a complimentary ARC. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    "Makes me sick . . . . Using something beautiful for something evil." Four unique novellas comprise this collection; their plot lines ranging from kidnappings to serial killers, each story charging ahead with stand alone force, entangling its characters in circumstances beyond their control.

For example, in "Something Beautiful for Something Evil" by Stephanie Black a young newlywed accidentally discovers that her husband is not exactly who he has presented himself to be. Taking his explanation at face value, Kate Durham begins her new job at a local gift emporium, cautiously looking for anything out of the ordinary, as directed by her husband. When a local college coed is brutally murdered with an implement purchased from The Treasure Chest, Kate is unknowingly thrust between the hunted and the hunter. Several of these stories seemed a bit unfinished, even rushed a bit, which can be characteristic of shorter stories. Nevertheless, it's a nice collection for readers who enjoy suspense. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.

    WOW! I loved this book. Each story is full of danger, heart-pounding suspense, evil bad buys, and strong, capable good guys! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I really liked the novella length for each story. This efficiently moved the plot along quickly. I never felt lacking in details or character depth. These are talented authors that really know how to pull in the reader, no matter the length of story. If you asked my favorite, that would be really hard. All were wonderful. Each unique WOW!

    I’m always on the lookout for a new suspense novel to read. This one is amazing because it has novellas by 4 of my very favorite suspense authors. I’m excited to get to tell you about it. I’ll talk a bit about each of the novellas. First up is Bridge of Trust by Traci Hunter Abramson. Ethan in this one happens upon a grisly scene as an FBI agent trying to find his mark.

First up is Bridge of Trust by Traci Hunter Abramson. Ethan in this one happens upon a grisly scene as an FBI agent trying to find his mark. There’s a young mother with her baby and a dead body across the room. This novella moves fast! I loved the way the reader could never tell what was coming next. Neither could the characters and that made it all the more great. I loved this one! Next is Corrupted by Clair M Poulson. This one features Jay as a local policeman. He’s a good policeman, asked to help look into others in their department. Things get a little crazy when girls start being kidnapped. It’s up to Jay to find them. I loved this one too! I loved the way the author shows several different perspectives as things happen. The reader is able to know what’s happened, but not why. I loved the way this kept the bad guy veiled from the reader, as well as from the characters. That kept me from guessing just who the bad guy was. Then there’s Gregg Luke’s Insidious. This one scared me the most out of all of them. Gregg Luke writes books about illnesses that are real. And that to me is probably the most scary thing, knowing that what he describes could really happen to someone that I know and love. Insidious features Andrew and his wife Taryn. I loved the way the reader is able to see things about Andrew through both of their eyes. The mystery in this one kept me guessing. Just what was wrong with Andrew and why? I loved the way Taryn worked tirelessly to figure it out. And she didn’t get discouraged when the doctor tried to brush her off. Last up is Stephanie Black’s Something Beautiful for Something Evil. I loved Kate in this one. She’s newly married to Colby and they’ve just moved to the Boston area, where Kate has a new job at The Treasure Chest, a local shop. This is one of those books where I wanted to shout at the main character to watch out. I had guessed from the beginning who the bad guy was. I just didn’t know how things were going to play out. It’s always kind of fun when you’re right about things like that. I kind of enjoy being safe at home and reading a book where you know there’s danger around every corner. This is one book I didn’t want to put down. Make sure to grab your own copy!

    ENTANGLED is a collection of four suspense novellas that stand completely on their own with no reference to the other stories in the collection. One story tells about an FBI agent and the woman and her children who he is trying to protect. Another tells of a kidnapping and the detective who investigates.

The third is about a mysterious illness that attacks an Olympic hopeful pole vaulter. The last story tells of a newlywed woman who finds herself part of her husband's side job trying to unravel a terrorist threat. Each story is unique, with a constant underlying feel of danger, and a climatic ending. Recommended to suspense fans! I enjoyed each of the stories in this collection. Abramson's, Luke's, and Black's stories were my favorites of the group. Poulson's story felt a little disjointed to me, mostly in regards to the dialogue (there were several phrases that just didn't sound like something someone would say) and some of the things that happened felt really unrealistic. Luke's story wasn't a suspense in the sense of the others... it's more just trying to figure out an illness, but it was very interesting. I'm sure there could have been more development in places, but they are all short stories. Overall, they were all well-written and I liked all the characters. In the end, was it what I wished for? These four novellas were entertaining, suspenseful, and held my interest. I would definitely recommend to suspense fans. Content: Some violence due to the genre, but clean. Source: I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, which did not require a positive review nor affect it in any way.

    I was so excited when I heard that some of my favorite authors were in a suspense novella collection called Entangled. Stephanie Black, Gregg Luke, Traci Abramson, and Clair Poulson all have new stories in this collection that you won't want to miss! I have to say that they were all edge-of-your-seat stories.

As you all know, I have had many creepy experiences while reading Stephanie Black stories (the late night rocking chair is the famous of all!), but this time I only had the toe-curling tension of who was going to live and who would die! I love the delicious creepiness of her stories and this one did not disappoint. Traci Abramson's story was a fast-paced thriller of a young woman whose child has been kidnapped by her criminal ex-husband and she'll work together with an FBI agent to get them back. I really enjoyed the hero in this one and his dedication to the case. Clair Poulson's story features a human trafficking element that is all too real in our current society, and Gregg Luke's story of a frantic search to find a cure for a rapidly progressing disease is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Each story had a different angle of suspense and will satisfy any reader who loves bite-sized bits of chills and thrills. These four stories will definitely keep you on your toes and turning pages as fast as possible!

I could come home each night and read one of them even though I was so tired. My first thought when I finished Entangled was I hoped that these four writers will pen another incredible book together. They know how to write thrilling stories that will bring readers back begging for more! Well done Traci Hunter Abramson, Clair M. Poulson, Gregg Luke, and Stephanie Black. Entangled will snare readers from the first to the last page.

    Reading Entangled was a fantastic and thrilling read. Each novella was different and unique but full of action and suspense that kept me reading. I loved that each story was long enough to be a full story but short enough to read when I didn't have a lot of time. Bridge of Trust by Abramson pulled me into the fast and furious world of the FBI and drug bosses. It is a must read. Corrupted by Poulson made me rethink everything I thought about safety and kept me on my toes about who would live and Reading Entangled was a fantastic and thrilling read.

    One of the things I love about novellas is how quickly they can be read. They get to the heart of the plot quickly and they move rapidly all the way through. The problem that can happen with a collection like this though is that you may not like all the stories equally. I am pleased to say though that that didn't happen here, at least not for me.

One story revolves around a woman who is trying to get her oldest son back from her drug dealing ex-husband, who also seems to want her dead. But with the help of a kind FBI agent, she hopes to see Henry again. The second story revolves around a woman whose daughter is kidnapped and her detective boyfriend must help her find the girl. The problem is that corrupt cops seem to be involved. The third story is a medical mystery with Taryn working with the doctors to try to figure out what is wrong with her husband. And the fourth story revolves around a woman, her shop, antagonistic neighbors, and a murder. Each story is well-written and pulled me in completely despite how short each story was. I will admit that one story broke my heart a bit, but life, even in stories doesn't always have a happy ending. I would recommend that you read these when you have some time because the book is hard to put down. A well-done collection of stories perfect for those who enjoy a good suspense.

    Bridge of Trust What happens when you have to save the wife of a crime boss? A lot of suspense, excitement, and even a chance of romance. This novella has everything, shoot outs, a mama bear, intrigue, and even a department leak in the FBI.

When Ethan is charged with keeping a mob boss’s ex-wife safe after her son is kidnapped and retrieve her son, it becomes the case of his life. A mole forces him to work outside the usual channels and safe houses. Summer, the mob boss’s ex-wife just wants to be left a lone to raise her sons, but someone isn’t letting that happen. I was glue to this story with its mystery and intrigue. The characters were good and the story compelling. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down until the end. The twists to the end kept the suspense up with a beautiful payoff. Corrupted The thing you learn from police stories, the thin blue line doesn’t like internal affairs investigations, but when girls are being kidnapped and one of them is the internal affairs investigator’s girlfriend’s daughter, that is bound to happen. Corruption is evident early but it is difficult to find the source or how deep it goes. The stakes get higher as the investigation hits closer to home and bodies start to appear. Is it a trafficking situation and how is the police force involved. This suspenseful race against time was a page turner. It is well written and twisty until the end. Insidious Of the novellas in this book, this one hit me the hardest. I have lived the world of unknown illness and the feeling of not knowing is unparalleled. I was right there with the main character as she fought to figure out what was happening to her husband. Of the subjects of these stories, illness is probably the most insidious enemy as the title suggests. It is unpredictable and doesn’t discriminate. The hope offered at the end of the story brings the truth that life keeps moving. I cautiously move forward to other books by this author, given the subject matter, but it was well developed and the characters were relatable. Something Beautiful for Something Evil Wow. I have no other words at this moment. All I can say is I should have seen that coming. Kate thought she had it all, a good job, a good husband, and a good life in a new town. Little did she know it was the beginning of things she would never forget. She just thought she was helping her husband investigate her boss and supposed ties to anti-government groups. Little did she know she was stumbling into the path of a serial killer. Trying to decipher this was what made this story work. It was full of false trails and missed clues. Overall this collection of stories was everything that it promised. Each story and each author brought a different style and type of story, but they fit together beautifully. They were long enough to enjoy and short enough for a quick escape.

    I was given an advanced reader copy of this book that is due to be released in September 2019. The following is my honest opinion of the book. Bridge of Trust by Traci Hunter Abramson was a great read. I loved how it connected to already loved character of Charlie Whitmore from some of her other books, but the story itself was suspenseful. I just wished that I got to read more of Ethan and Summer’s story. You only get so much in a novella. Corrupted by Clair M.

I just wished that I got to read more of Ethan and Summer’s story. You only get so much in a novella. Corrupted by Clair M. Poulson was a pretty good read as well. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat, and the ending was not quite how I thought it would play out. Insidious by Gregg Luke is a mystery for sure, but not a murder mystery. This is about a medical mystery. I found it very unique when it comes to mysteries, but the ending did bring tears to my eyes. It’s one of those bittersweet endings that makes you appreciate all the hard work that doctors go through to help solve a medial mystery. Something Beautiful for Something Evil by Stephanie Black is definitely a mystery that Stephanie would come up with. I must admit that I didn’t like the ending. I didn’t like to find out who the culprit was, but I must also admit that it makes for a great mystery. All in all despite them being novellas and not getting to know the characters as well as you do in full-length novels, they all turned out excellent that got me entangled with their mysteries and needing to know what happens. This book makes for a great quick reads here and there when you only have so much time to invest in a novel. You can read a story and then set it down to get something else done, then you can read the next story and so forth. It you like mysteries and suspense, then this is a book for you.

    This is a good book! I usually don’t care much for a book of Novellas as they seem too rushed to do the stories justice but I have to say this one wasn’t that way. Four stories by Tracie Hunter Abramson, Clair M. Poulson, Gregg Luke and Stephanie Black. I believe the 1st one was my favorite although they were all great. Bridge of Trust is very suspenseful and will keep you tense waiting to see what happens. There is a romantic ending as well. Also I liked the location of Arizona since I live her This is a good book!

There is a romantic ending as well. Also I liked the location of Arizona since I live here so I was familiar with all the places in the book. In Corrupted you will be taken into a human trafficking story where young girls are kidnapped to be sold. It is hard to keep from giving away spoilers on this one so I won’t say more except that it was a very good story. Insidious is a sad but very enlightening story of Medical Suspense. Andrew Miner has contracted a debilitating disease that has the doctors stumped. His wife Taryn, a pharmacist, goes on a search to identify the disease. This will keep you enthralled right up to the surprise ending. Someone is using Something Beautiful For Something Evil. It seems there is a killer of young women on the loose and maybe Jamie could be the next victim. This is a good fast paced novella that suspense readers will enjoy. All in all this is a great book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Entangled is one suspense story after another with several strong heroines in each story. The book starts out with Bridge of Trust. Traci Hunter Abramson's story of a woman on the run from her ex husband who's a crime boss, she will do everything to protect her sons from the life he has planned for them. In Corrupted, Clair M. Poulson tells a thrilling tale of abduction and corruption within the police force and a parent's desire to do anything to get their child back.

It's one story you have to finish in one sitting and not read before bed or it will keep you up all night thinking about it. At least it did for me. Gregg Luke's story Insidious is one that puts your stomach in knots as you read and hope for a happy ending. It's about a strange illness and the wife who is her husband's greatest advocate with his health care. Stephanie Black's Something Beautiful For Something Evil is a great story that leaves you wondering who to trust. With two strong females in this story you root for the truth to win before something deadly happens. This book was a fun read and I enjoyed each story. Suspense novels aren't my go to genera but I would read this book again . I was given the chance to pre-read this novel for Covenant Communications all opinions are my own.

I can’t pick a favorite story of the four, and I honestly believe that I can reread these stories and still enjoy them knowing the endings. Reviewed for https://kissthebook.blogspot.com/

All the mysteries were so well written and I was hooked by first or second page . Great authors and loved all the suspense and intrigue these stories offered. This is one everyone should read! Loved it!!!

    I am not a fan of short stories. When I saw that the first story in this compilation of short stories was by Traci Hunter Abramson (I love her books), and that it looked almost as long as a book (according to the number of pages), I decided to read at least her story. It was a nice story, but it still felt like a short story, and I entered a 3-star review. I really have no desire to read the rest of them.

    A fast-paced set of four thriller novellas, which provides a great sampling for the styles and approaches of four popular authors. Two of the stories were police/FBI thrillers, one was a medical thriller, and the fourth a story of women caught up in a giant conspiracy. They were each page turners, and despite the shorter format, I felt connected and invested in most of the characters. I really liked the variety and now I want to read more from these authors.

    Fun compilation, quick read, four great authors. My favorite two stories are the bookends: the stories by Abramson and Black. I read them out of order, saving Abramson for last. Each novella was complete with a beginning, middle, and end. The character arcs were small due, which is typical for a novella. The intrigue was excellent, which is what you expect from these authors. Overall, each story was satisfying.

    This was a great collection of suspense books that were all vastly different. One was a medical suspense. Another had to do with custody and crimes. One had to do with a missing child. And the one had to deal with who to trust. That final one is the one that kept me up late at night because I truly had no idea how it was going to end. All of the books were well-researched with plausible plots. I enjoyed all of the authors, and I would gladly read other books by them.

    #Entangled #NetGalley If you like suspense, four authors Traci Abramson, Clair Poulsen, Gregg Luke and Stephanie Black, all share separate stories in this anthology. The novels dealt with kidnapping, medical conditions and a spouse wondering if her husband is having an affair or is he really working for homeland security. My favorite stories were by Traci Abramson and Stephanie Black. Get ready to feel creeped out, when the unexpected happens.

    I gave this book five stars because the stories are well-written (no filler wording) and pack a punch. Each novella is terrifyingly realistic and creepy. I don't have a favorite; I do have a least favorite. I'm still obsessing a bit about naturally occurring decease. But I won't spill the beans. You'll have to read the book to understand my reference.
