    Midwest Book Review

    The author of Chasing Horses and Wayne's Dead has done it again. Her gift for creating compelling characters and an exciting story comes a cropper in Chasing Demons. This third book is Christy Tillery French at her best. At age 14, a beautiful and innocent Kendra is 'traded' by her father to Tony Salvatori. Tony is a mobster, an evil, murderous villain of the worst kind. Wealthy and powerful, he grooms the young girl he's renamed Angel to be his wife. At age 18, he marries Kendra / Angel and sets out to make her into the sort of woman he can be proud of in public. Over time her life becomes a nightmare of vicious beatings and observing Tony's murderous vendettas. When he deliberately causes her to miscarry their child, she escapes with the help of a sympathetic henchman. Battered and hemorrhaging, she finds shelter on the property of Garth Fisher. Garth is a burnt out cop who lives in self imposed isolation in the mountains of North Carolina. At first shocked and moved by Angel's condition, he soon feels admiration for her courage. Over time, his concern for her turns to tenderness, and then love. The only man Angel has ever known intimately is the brutal Tony. Garth's quiet strength and gentle consideration are a new experience, one she'd like to explore if only Tony's spectre was not threatening their lives. The raging Tony cuts a violent swath through several states in his maddened search for Angel. And when he and his goons catch up to Garth and Angel, all hell breaks loose. But Angel has vowed to rid herself of Tony. No more chasing demons. The final chapters are full of adrenalin pumping action as Angel takes her stand with Garth beside her. It seems Ms. French can write in any genre. Her work is always 'no holds barred' excitement, with strong and believable characters racing to a satisfying climax. If you like action thrillers with a healthy dose of romance, give Chasing Demons a whirl. Any movie producers out there? This one would make a thrilling movie.

    Great Mystery Romance Novel!

    Best selling author, Christy French has done it again! In Chasing Demons she holds the reader engrossed in her page-turning, fast paced, mystery, romance novel. There are times when the graphic use of descriptive events grips readers with extreme shock and intense suspense. At other times her gentle approach to a developing romance lulls and soothes us as we follow the twisting path of love between two deserving characters. For readers who are just beginning the mystery romance novel this book is a wonderful treat and for those 'tried and true' fans, the plot is never disappointing. To add satisfaction, there is a clever twist in the book's unexpected ending! Don't peek! Chasing Demons, is a well-written, smoothly polished novel, sure to entertain and please the most discriminating reader. A thoroughly enjoyable read! Congratulation, Christy French. We anxiously await another great mystery, romance from your talented pen! Evelyn Horan - Author Jeannie, A Texas Frontier Girl Books One - Four

    Excellent Read!

    Ms French delivers yet another gem for her rapidly growing list of fans to devour. CHASING DEMONS is a fast-paced, smooth read that I found fascinating and impossible to put down. It does what good fiction should do; entertain the reader from beginning to end. Kendra Salvatori is married to the boss of a small crime organization. After years of enduring Tony's brutality, she manages to escape. The parallel stories that materialize are perfectly blended. The gritty, violent side of organized crime is shown by Tony's determination to find Kendra by any means possible. On the flip side, the reader follows Kendra's will to survive and to explore the new, gentle relationship with the man who saved her life. The reader can easily feel many emotions due to strong character development and the unique weiting style of the author. This one has it all; mystery, suspense, romance, and a creative plot. I challenge any reader to try to put this book down once they start to read it! The action and drama build until the exhilarating conclusion that left me breathless. Outstanding job Ms French. I eagerly anticipate your next book. You are setting the bar very high for yourself. (reviewed for Denise's Pieces Book Reviews)

    Read it in one day...

    'Chasing Demons' is the third book I have read by talented Christy Tillery French. Reading a novel in one day should say volumes to an author. The ability to not only hold the attention of the reader but keep the attention means a 'great read,' to me. Once again, as experienced in 'Chasing Horses' and 'Wayne's Dead' French demonstrates her talent for balancing well written detail with believeable dialogue. The contrast between the bad and the good zeroes in on her other gift to engage the reader in highs and lows emotionally, resulting in a satisfying reading experience; disgust juxtaposed with warm fuzzies. Amazing! Thank you, Ms. French!
