      Novel Publicity Virtual Book Blog Tours, 
                    "Wired" by Martha Carr

It is 1989.  Living in a small town, we meet High School Sweethearts, now married for fourteen years, Charlie and Mary Elizabeth, who have a beautiful son named Matthew.  They seem to be living the American Dream.  Mary Elizabeth is a stay-at-home Mom, and Charlie runs and owns the local shoe store downtown.  All of a sudden, we see Mary Elizabeth starting to experience some difficulties with her life.  Something is bothering her in as terrible way, and she is acting out in strange ways.  We are left in the dark and can’t see exactly ‘what’ it is that is bothering her, yet we can tell something absolutely horrific had to have happened because of the severity of what might seem to be flashbacks that she is experiencing.  The story does not tell us exactly what is going on.  We are left in suspense over this perplexing problem she is going through.  Eventually, the problems she is experiencing start to become too difficult for her to handle, and she needs some time to herself to get through this.  Instead of leaning on her husband to help her, she ends up asking her husband, Charlie, to move out.  He is dumbfounded.  He cannot understand why or what happened along the way for things to get this severe.  He moves out, reluctantly.  He is concerned about the safety of his wife and son because recently a serial killer seems to be in the area they live after being gone for so many years.  Charlie ends up living with his employee’s family until he can get on his feet.  This arrangement is working out very well for Mary Elizabeth, and she seems to be thriving and working things out in her life.  She does become aware that there is a serial killer on the loose, and takes preventative steps to keep her and their son safe, yet . . . then she starts acting out again, the severity starts to escalate and she can’t figure out what is going on.  She finds out something about her husband which she cannot believe he did.  He finds out something about her which he thinks she has done and they are both at odds with each other.  The serial killer is going wild at this point.  All of a sudden, with this knowledge, her acting out, everything finally become crystal clear to Mary Elizabeth..  She knows what she has to do.  No, she knows what she must do.  She acts on it.  We are now left on the edge of our seats flipping page after page after page.  We have to find out what happens next.  The intensity keeps building and building.  Then, . . .

I enjoyed this book very much.  It seemed like things did not make sense at times, but as you keep reading, the author did this intentionally, which made the book that much more suspenseful.  At the end, things escalate so highly, the intensity is unbelievable.  This is a  MUST READ!  5 out of 5 stars in my opinion!  Get your copy today!  See below for the LINK to Smashwords!  The book is discounted especially for you, with a special code!

  1. Thank you so much for a great and insightful review! Loved the way you built the tension without giving anything away. ;) If you get a chance, please leave the review at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Good Reads and Smashwords. Wonderful job.

  2. Hi~ Great review. I gave you a vote too. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Martha!!!!
    Hello! I am SOOOO glad you came by! A HUGE Thank You! I'm glad you liked my review! It was such a compliment that you liked it! Thanks! Yes! I AM posting it at all the GREAT places! You can be assured of that! I always do! When I go to purchase books myself, I 'depend' on the reviews that are written! I would NOT buy a book if I did not have access to a 'consumer's review'! That is what I LOVE about Amazon! I don't like to go 'in' to a place such as Barnes & Noble because we don't have access to reviews there, despite their having computers as they don't allow us to use them to look up the reviews. I think book reviews posted online is VITAL to a books success!
    I feel honored that you came by to visit my post on your book, "Wired"! Thank you SO much!
