This afternoon, it is my great pleasure to welcome Jaye Marie to The Write Stuff to share a review of her novel, Nine Lives. As always, I know you’ll enjoy reading this one and will pass it along on your favorite social media sites. Thanks so much!
If you like the thriller genre that keeps up the momentum then this would be a good read for you. The pace never falters, building up the plot and characters with timely intervention. The author cleverly keeps the story centred around the main character, with the other players coming into the story and yet there are no plot holes or false timings.
Not once did I get bored reading it or find the story faltering at all – definitely one of those where ‘you need to know what happens next’ but I think the author’s gift when writing this is to keep the protagonist centre whilst keeping the reader constantly hooked. The antagonist is typically a nasty character, one whom the reader takes an instant dislike to and the edge he adds to the story is almost palpable.
Other characters are kept to a minimum but play pivotal roles in the story; the good thing here is you never know quite how they will turn out. Will your fears be unfounded? Or did you correctly guess the next step? The ending is not what you would expect (another good talent to have when writing) but you’ll have to read the book!
Death has been visiting Kate all of her life, leading her to imagine she has nine lives, like a cat.
With nothing to live for, no family, just a brother she hates, she waits for death to take her away when her lives run out.
Death continues to speak to her, teasing her, yet will not come for her. When people around her begin to die at the hands of a serial killer, she hopes to be next.
Has she finally run out of lives? Will she find a reason to live after all, before it is too late?
Author Jaye Marie
My name is Jaye Marie, the genius ‘oily rag’ and one-half of the establishment http://jenanita01.com. I usually prefer to stay in the background, but that is beginning change.
Since we decided to publish our books ourselves, most of my other interests have had to take a back seat. I am an avid Bonsai collector and my tiny trees demand a lot of my attention in the growing season, or they will die. (it is just like having children)
I prefer to be busy, although I did think that now I am over 70 I might be able to relax a bit more, I don’t think I can for I am far too nosey. I love exploring all the wonderful writing possibilities and trying something new. I make all these plans in my head, knowing I will probably forget most of them, but I can’t help it.
For someone who loathes computers with a passion, and I suspect this is mutual, I have managed to master the beast to some extent, but there is still so much I don’t know. As long as there is life in this old body, I will keep trying, and you never know, our books might just make the bestseller list one day!
It won’t be for the lack of trying, believe me!
