NY Times Best Selling Author Stephanie Tyler/SE Jakes Mirror Series is a Dark Mystery/Suspense Romantic Thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The first 3 books, Mirror Me, Rule of Thirds and Walk in My Shadow are stories based on characters in WITSEC with FBI, CIA, serial killers and a huge amount of action/suspense thrown in. Of course there is also some very wonderful romance. My reviews are below:
My Five Star Review of Mirror Me:
Mirror Me is the story of Kayla Peters who is in the Witness Protection Program because of her serial killing twin sister. Kayla is desperate for a normal life but knows there is no way to get one until her sister is caught. Abby Daniels, the US Marshall charged with protecting Kayla decided to set her up in a rental house in Abby’s home town. A small town mostly retired military and their families. A rental house that just happens to be located next to her retired Delta Force brother Teige Junos.
Abby and Teige intrigue each other and after one hot kiss, Teige can’t get Abby out of his head but a killer is coming and Teige’s instincts to protect kick in. Teige, Abby and her new partner, Jacoby Razwell, work together to keep Kayla safe and stop a killer from killing again. It is a roller-coaster ride you do not want to miss.
Abby and Teige are basically the main characters but stories for Abby and Jacoby start in this book and finish in the next two. All of these characters are well developed and I absolutely loved each one of them.
My Four Star Review of Rule of Thirds:
Rule of Thirds is the story of Jacoby Razwell FBI and in WITSEC due to his serial killing sister, and Special Agent Ward Thayer. We first meet Jacoby in Mirror Me and I knew there was more to him then meets the eye. You are not going to believe this guys history.
Again, this story is very much a psychological thriller and things get a bit messy and graphic. There is a lot of history between these two men that finally comes full circle and you can feel the love down deep in your soul with every word Stephanie writes. Jacoby is on the hunt to find his sister and stop her but who exactly is the one being hunted. This book is a true roller-coaster ride that keep me whispering, “oh no” several times.
If you love a good thriller with some amazing male love thrown in, then you definitely want to pick up this book. You can absolutely read this as a stand alone.
My Four Star Review of Walk in my Shadow:
Walk in my Shadow is the story of US Marshall Abby Daniels and CIA Special Agent Vance. Abby has a new witness she is protecting and Vance is trying to located his brother Ethan’s (who happens to have been Abby’s former friend and lover) killer. Vance does a few questionable things in the beginning that I was sure Abby’s brother Teige or Jacoby was going to kill him for. Teige and Kayla as well as Jacoby and Ward make an appearances in this book and it was wonderful to see them again. Abby is one tough woman and I loved her the minute I met her in Mirror Me. She is just as tough and capable in Walk in my Shadow. I love books with strong woman who can absolutely keep up with the boys and at times even pass them. (I would suggest you read Mirror Me before you read this book. A few things happen in that book and you’ll want to know them before heading into Walk in my Shadow. Stephanie does re-cap a bit but trust me, you are going to want to know it all.)
The chemistry between Abby and Vance is completely off the charts even from the very beginning. All Vance wants to do is protect Abby, Abby can certainly protect herself but can she survive a third encounter with a serial killer.
As with the other books in this series, there is a killer, lots of action, adventure and romance. Many things come to light in this book and you are introduced to a new character, CIA Agent Knox’s, who will be getting is own Mirror book.
I have read just about every book by Stephanie Tyler/SE Jakes and each and everyone is wonderful. Her writing flows smoothly, books are easy to read and the stories always keep me turning the pages. I would highly recommend any of her books.
