THE SINISTER MINISTER RETURNS
By Nancy Lewis Shelton
Cookie is back in the sequel to book one, Cookie, the Pet Sitter: Gobs of Pets Caper (2021). Cookie is a widow and retired school teacher. In order to make some extra cash she decides on pet sitting, much to the chagrin of her quaint friends.
Cookie Lane's experience with the Sinister Minister gang in book one put her nerves on edge. After being duct-taped to a chair and a harrowing escape, she believes the gang leader is in jail. But when a duct-taped note on a brick lands through her window, the chills returned. Her grandchildren are coming to visit for a week. Will they complicate matters? Are they in danger? Cookie keeps looking over her shoulder as she's pursued. Will Brad help her or not?
Cookie, the Pet Sitter 2: The Sinister Minister Returns, brings satisfying results. Nancy Lewis Shelton hits it on the mark again with her humor and wit in spinning a cozy, delightful story.
If you love pets, you’ll grin at the comical situations Cookie gets into. With a touch of romance, a little mystery, and good practical pet-sitting/child-rearing advice, you’ll love this easy, fun read.
I nominate Cookie, the Pet Sitter2: The Sinister Minister Returns (published in 2022) for recognition in SWG Goodreads.
By Drew Thorn
“The Oligarch”—the second book in the Sandy Powell Series— continues where “The Pinnacle Club" left off: Greedy oil barons versus a likable couple who have stumbled onto a new source of energy that will topple the oil industry.
The bad oil barons and their minions are still doing everything legal and illegal to stop Sandy Powell and his girlfriend Morgan Dutton as they establish a new company to commercialize Sandy's grandfather's invention. These unscrupulous bad guys have paid assassins to stop them and kill them if necessary. But the good guys have friends, and a lovable dog, who risk life and limb to protect them.
“The Oligarch” introduces the mysterious Pavel Ostrovsky—a ruthless Russian energy Oligarch—and we don’t know which side he is on. His presence is the beauty of this story. He is both foreboding and supportive. And always dangerous and mysterious as he pulls strings throughout the international energy community to meet his demands.
Author Drew Thorn moves the storyline along as we travel from New York and Connecticut-to-Texas-to-Australia; from boardrooms to stunning mansions; and from one great restaurant to another.
Guns are shot, with direct hits and near-misses. People are abducted, but not always saved. Dinner parties upended, dishes broken and guns fired. Within this action, the author skillfully blends personalities and subplots where you will totally fall in love with the good guys; hate and jeer the bad guys; and question which side one very powerful Russian is taking. I couldn’t wait to see what happens.
“The Oligarch” is a compelling—easy-to-read—yet action packed thriller with vivid characters who exude a charm and warmth that will keep you hooked until the very end.
