Chillemi’s Deadly Designs is one of the best crime fiction novels for today’s world, October 14, 2016

By  C. Brown

This review is from: Deadly Designs: The Veronica “Ronnie” Ingels/Dawson Hughes Trilogy, Book Two (Authorized Operations) (Kindle Edition)

Chillemi’s Deadly Designs is one of the best crime fiction novels for today’s world. Filled with tension and fast-paced action, the book also brings out the romance between the protagonists and both the suspense and romance are handled as an experienced, great writing author should do–realistically and attention-grabbing.

Ronnie Ingels teams up with Lt Dawson Hughes to find the missing wife and daughter of nerdy radio DJ Harper, even though reported far later than they should have been. Fear for the missing mother and daughter is building when the double protagonists go from questioning the elite society of Connecticut and grouchy local police detectives to an underworld of fashion and terrorism.

One impressive ability that shines from Chillemi’s writing, is her ability to infuse faith and inspirational moments within her plots that are realistic and encouraging to readers, and far from overwhelming.

The question is: did the model/mother take off on one of her usual pot-smoking experiences with a shady “friend,” or did the international terrorists kidnap the two as pay back for the DJ’s pro-Israel, conspiracy theory he spouted on a regular broadcast? Is the husband at fault? And can Ronnie and Dawson rescue the family before it’s too late?

Time is ticking…and everyone knows time is a factor in finding a live child. Recommended highly!

The Scribblers Take Over Camp DeWolfe

The Scribblers writing group held a one day workshop at Camp DeWolfe camp and retreat center in Wading River, on the North Fork of Long Island.

So, you’re wondering how a gal from Brooklyn got to a workshop on the North Fork. Well, that’s easy. I was the guest of Long Island author Jenna Victoria.

The house where the event was held has an interesting history. During World War II, FBI agents posing as enemy spies used this house to send radio messages with misinformation (or as they say, “disinformation”) to Germany across the Atlantic Ocean.

We were greeted with a table full of homemade goodies. This was no low-cal, low-carb situation. I can personally attest to the fact that the chocolate-chip blondies were amazing. The bunt cake was scrumptious with an incredible lemon icing. ~ Yes, I had more than one piece.

We broke up, each to find our own cozy place to write. This was my room.

I worked on the chapter which is the darkest moment in DEADLY DESIGNS, the second novel in the Veronica “Ronnie” Ingels/Dawson Hughes series

This was our group at the Scribblers’ Writing Workshop. There I am in the back left. Long Island Sound is behind us.

Though not visible, Connecticut is across the sound and is also the setting of DEADLY DESIGNS.

So, I stood on the bluff and thought a few things through about where my plot twists would wind up.
