“…never experienced before…” Read the full review!

From Anna, Goodreads Reader, here’s a new review for The Curse of a Mind:

“Highly psychological in its whole, yet lighthearted and entertaining, this novel is highly worth the time it takes to snuggle up and read.

As the story proceeds, there are twists and turns that all of the characters never expected to come across. I have to admit, at the end, there was quite the surprise awaiting me.

The character dynamics easily mesh together, yet each individual has the ability to stand on their own & be a strong lead. The continuing development of the “love interest” allows the story line to drastically deepen, despite the suggestion that this relationship will never fully develop.

The killer — well, that’s a whole different topic. Something that can only be described as both highly interesting and disturbing. Something that I have never experienced before within a novel.

As for everything else in between, you need to read it yourself to find out!”

“…emotional upsets that made me gasp…” Read the review!

Author Tamela Quijas read The Curse of a Mind. Here’s a tidbit of what she had to say…

“A Curse of the Mind was a spine tingling rollercoaster ride through my favorite subjects, murder and the unknown.  Ms. Booze provides an exceptional story filled with second-guessing, twists and turns, and emotional upsets that made me gasp.  This is the best novel yet to come from Destiny’s hand, and I recommend A Curse of the Mind to anyone looking for that novel that will make you wonder just who has insight into your thoughts….”

Could it be this character is too tough?

Chris Chambers, my heroine in The Curse of a Mind is tough and damaged and she has lots of spunk. Some of the things that happen in her past are not for the faint of heart. I love how she overcomes and prevails throughout the story despite such a rough beginning in life.

That’s one of the messages I love to pass on to readers. No matter what happens to someone in life, they can find a way to overcome it!

But…I realize writers can go overboard. Did I make Chris too tough in this story? Here’s one reviewer that seems to think so. Read the review and share your thoughts with me! I love the feedback!

They can’t win. The perpetrator is using a marvel in the medical field known as techlepathy, a combination of technology and telepathy to produce a telepathic result. He’s reading their minds. How can they possibly get away when he knows their every move?

Chris Chambers is a private investigator with great instincts and a shady past. She works with a skilled team on cases that most P.I.’s won’t touch. She’s hardened to life, hardened to people and as tough as the military trained her to be.

Her team’s newest case is a construction worker by the name of Aidan Wolfe. Aidan is hardheaded and successful, a man with no friends and a long list of enemies. Someone is trying to kill him, someone with extraordinary gifts.

The investigative team and Aidan will be confronted with their worst enemies—themselves. They are cursed to face their own thoughts, inner fears, prejudices, and every private feeling or emotion they have as this man toys with their minds and hearts.

Can they survive? By the end, will they want to?

“It is her best book so far!”

New Review emailed to me Monday, March 7, 2011

“I have read about 3/4 of the book. It is so good! I started it Saturday and have read all my spare time. You know how some books you can figure out what is going to happen and who the culprit is, well, I don’t have a clue! So that makes for good reading. It is her best book so far!!” ~ Sandra, Reader

New 5 Star review for THE CURSE OF A MIND!

Posted to Shelfari:

“Destiny has written a very good mystery here. The reader’s interest is engaged from the beginning and the flame is fanned skillfully, gradually enhancing the interest level through to the very end. Like all good mysteries this one has a twist that the author carefully develops, finally dropping the bomb toward the end of her tale.
I purchased Kindle version, rapidly becoming my favorite format because of the ease of reading.
I highly recommend Destiny Booze’s mystery, The Curse of a Mind, giving the book 5-stars; the reader will not be disappointed.”

As her daddy’s favorite punching bag, Chris Chambers grew up with no illusions of the evil inside a mind, which most certainly includes her own. At the age of seventeen she took control of her life, and nearly ten years later that control is what keeps her going.

The destruction at job sites was something he could pass off as accidents, but when he receives a death threat, Aiden Wolfe knows it is serious. Hiring the best private investigators he can find, Aiden’s guilt over putting others in danger once again rears its ugly head.

After a stint in the army, Chris uses every skill she learned to become a first class P.I., and her job is the only thing that saves her sanity, but this case is threatening even that. Her client only needs to look at her, and her precious control is shot to hell. Aiden wants no more pain or death on his conscience, but the person targeting him is intent on doing just that, and Aiden is only part of the equation. Chris and Aiden try desperately to keep her team together, but this is one killer with an inside tract, and the harder they fight, the tighter the net closes around them.

Read this novel and see if you can honestly answer the question of what it would take to make you a killer, because no matter how righteous you think you are, everyone has a breaking point. For the protagonist in this story, I believe it is a lifetime of feeling defeated, and having known so little love in his life that losing any amount of that is horribly devastating. As for Chris and Aiden, I feel they could very easily have succumbed to the same fate, but instead turned their fears and anger inward, blaming themselves and putting up walls to keep others out. Put yourself in their place as tides of emotional and psychological warfare wash over them and really experience how their feelings for each other may be their only chance for survival.
