This is book three of the Tom Jones series, but I had no problem jumping in at this one. I was not lost.

Description:  Blood transfusions have saved countless lives over the years, but when a terrorist group agitating for Scottish independence deliberately contaminates a hundred blood packs with a deadly bacteria, this normally safe procedure poses a terrifying threat.

Department of Health investigator Tom Jones is recalled from holiday to assist with the police enquiries, and the trail leads him to the West Highland Transfusion Centre – where, to complicate matters, he finds that his former girlfriend is now in a relationship with one of the chief suspects.

The hunter will turn into the hunted however, as Tom is targeted when his investigation grows close to uncovering the truth.

Four Stars

Such an interesting whodunit. I jumped into this book without reading the first two. The scenes take place in Ireland, so that was fun and refreshing. 

The main character, Tom is an intelligent sleuth with a dry wit. Snarky humor is amazing.  I was drawn in right away. 

The premise for the mystery is kind of a scary thought – blood packs all over the country are tainted with a deadly organism (virus? disease? I can’t remember. People die.) It’s a race against the clock to figure out – how did the bad guys tamper the plastic blood containers without being detected and who did it!? 

The last five to six chapters were made of fun action. I encourage Puckett to fill an entire novel with this. So well done. I didn’t know the culprit until the reveal at the end of the novel – lots of characters. Lots of suspects.

I’d definitely read more by this author.

Thanks for stopping

Another bloody, virus filled book: The Hot Zone: The Terrify True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus. Oh my – so scarey! Don’t read on an airplane. I made that mistake.

Description for Avoidance:

After the shocking return of her mother, Merritt Adams is faced with emotions that she had buried deep inside of herself for almost a decade. While the love of her life is busy fulfilling his dreams, Merritt is left to her own devices. Searching for solace in all the wrong places, her avoidant behaviors spiral out of control. If she doesn’t learn how to take responsibility for her actions, she could end up on rock bottom – alone.

T.J. Cutler is an MMA fighter who knows all too well what happens when one tries to run away from his problems. He may be the only person who can get through to Merritt, having lived through his own nightmarish childhood. T.J. can teach Merritt how to fight against her demons, but she needs to prove that she is committed to following his rules.

Life is full of choices, and Merritt needs to start making the right ones. It could mean the difference between life and death.

Avoidance is the continuation of Merritt’s story from Collision. Topics include family, love, romance, loss, death, tragedy, depression, anxiety, suicide, alcoholism, fighting, tattoos, and overcoming struggle.
