 GOOD Tuesday all , hope you all survived the long weekend if you had one . Today we are going to review a new author to me and her book MY OWN NIGHTMARE  by Barb Shuler.

                            BOOK BLURB 

One night a life changed. My life.

I used to write about chaos – about lives turning on a dime. Never once did I think it would ever happen to me. I went from a blossoming career to a prisoner in the span of a single evening. A living nightmare I was determined to escape.

The price of evil was high, but I wasn’t backing down. I knew in my heart the men in my life would be looking. I just had to survive. One day at a time. Minutes turned to hours. Hours turned into days. Then, it was time to make a choice.

Live or Die?

I chose to live.

Hell hath no fury and I had no more time...

                        MY REVIEW 

    I sat down and started reading this book , thought I would read some and put it down and go about my day . Well I was mistaken , I read the book in one sitting . Supper was not made and laundry didn't get folded . I got very invested in this book. It sucked me in right from the get go . The author took me down a dark tunnel . What would you do if you were having the time of your life . You had a great writing career and a man who loved you unconditionally. That was Dani-lyn's life . She had a best selling novel and a hot sexy sheriff that loved her oh and she had a secret . Until the night it all went terribly wrong .  When she was taken from her hometown book signing . Will the men in her life find her before it is too late . 
    What can I saw about the characters in this book.  They are complex and well written . Dani-lyn was a character at the beginning of the book I really was on the fence about her . She was timid and well it felt like she was a little naïve . But as you read along through the book and you watched her go through everything that she went through , You really see her grow and be come a warrior . She took her getting out of where she was in her own hands . The one woman that actually really scared me was Nicole . Man she was crazy and I mean scary crazy. She was always around Dani watching and waiting . Not going to tell you anymore about her cause I will spoil it for you . The supporting characters are all well written and help find Dani . 
   This story is not for the faint of heart . There are scenes of sexual and physical abuse and some torture . This is a book full of twists and turns . I honestly couldn't put this book down . I wanted to know if she was going to make it out alive . This is also the first book where it was a female stalker , stalking another female . Which to me made the book even better . I will say the twist at the end will have you going what the heck . You will cheer for the characters and you will also cry . Trust me some of the stuff Dani went through , I had tears in my eyes . I truly felt for her at the end of the book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series .  If you want a dark read with plenty of twists and turns add this series to your fall and winter reading list .
