In Trashy Suspense Novel by Jacqueline E. Smith, we meet Eloise, who is content to manage her bookstore with assistant Jason and be a mom to a 6-year-old son in the small mountain town where she lives. Her life suddenly turns brighter when she meets a handsome newcomer, not knowing until later that Daniel Brunsworth is a best-selling horror writer. As their relationship advances, other changes are in the air. There have been sightings of a so-called monster roaming around the woods and the whole town gets involved with the drama of whether the Bogman is real. Things become sinister when a hiker goes missing and is found days later, wandering around in a daze, beaten and starving, and soon events snowball into terror for Eloise, threatening those close to her as well as her own life.
What I loved most about Trashy Suspense Novel by Jacqueline E. Smith is the riveting suspense and the anticipation of more to come. As Eloise and Daniel’s relationship turns more romantic, they must deal with life’s roadblocks: the missing tourist, the Bogman sightings, a stalker, and then, the most terrifying event of all, a man close to Eloise goes missing and she finds herself fighting for her life. Jacqueline E. Smith is a master character writer. I loved to hate the antagonists in Trashy Suspense Novel, and the characters of aunts Hettie and Theresa and kids Isaac and Addie are loveable and charming. Trashy Suspense Novel is a great story for readers who love romance and suspense, with a hint of folklore.
