I am only One Scream Away + Giveaway

I am happy to be a part of this blog tour. In fact courtesy of Anna with Hachette, I am giving away a copy of this book to one lucky winner.







Years ago, Elizabeth Denison came in contact with her worst nightmare. She became the victim and obsession of serial killer Chevy Bankes. She survived…if you can call always being on alert and scared a better alternative. Bankes was caught and sentenced to prison. He is now out and ready to pick up where he left off.

Former FBI special agent Neil Sheridan has been asked by his best friend, Rick, who is a cop to help him on a murder case. At first Neil has no interest. That all changes when Neil learns that the murder victim’s face was cut up to look like a doll; in addition to being raped and shot to death. The case brings back bad memories for Neil. When he was still active, he had caught and killed a serial killer. He believed that the killer was dead but now it seems he might have killed the wrong man.

Elizabeth Denison receives a phone call one day. The caller is none other then Bankes. He tells her that he is out and he hopes to hear her scream once more for him. Beth fears for her and her daughter’s lives but she keeps her mouth shut about the phone call. The police discover that the murder victim’s cell phone was used. The last call made on it was to a Beth Denison. Beth plans to take out Bankes herself but will her silence be deadly?

One Scream Away is what I call a good time. I just about read this book in one sitting. Both my eyes and hands were glued to the book. The sparks that Beth and Neil shared were really good. I liked that that the story line didn’t veer too far from the murderer and the characters and head more into a romance between Neil and Beth. While I do enjoy romantic suspenses; I like when they are evenly balanced. I scream for more Kate Brady!

How to win a copy of this book. Open to US and Canada only. No PO Boxes. Ends August 1st.

Hi Cheryl, no need to enter me as I have a contest going too. I just wanted to agree with you about this book being so hard to put down. Yow, Brady sure knows how to keep up the tension and the suspense. I hope to see more from the author too. Have a great week.

Favorite horror movie and book. Would be Stephen King's Shining. The movie would be the original version with Jack Nickolson.

Another great horror book is Joe Hill's Heartshaped Box. I would to see this book become a movie.

Thanks for the opportunity! Indigo

Please enter me in this contest! It sounds like a fantastic book and thrillers/suspense books are my favorite. I subscribe/follow. It is hard to pick out my favorite thriller movie, though I would have to say it would probably be an old Hitchcock movie. Maybe Rear Window. Though there wasn't a ton of blood and guts, the suspense builds and builds until your heart is pounding.

I don't really like horror novels but I do like the movies. I like the Underworld movies mostly because the lead female isn't crying in the corner but fighting the bad guys. And I also like the old Hitchcock movies. They weren't bloody by today's standards but they were very suspenseful and my imagination helped to scare me.

My all time favorite horror movies are Alfred Hitchcock movies. I grew up watching his movies and still love them. I will never forget The Birds!

Silence of the Lambs is another horror movie that gave me chills.

My favorite horror book is "The Mist" by Stephen King because it's really creepy. It's about a fog (mist) that envelopes a seaside town & the horrors this mist contains. A great read!
