One more chapter was just not enough! Diane Capri chooses to use different writing methods for her mystery that I think were excellent! Rather than writing the mystery as a who done it, you figured out the who pretty early on, leaving you to sit and ponder why in the world would this person be possessed to do the things that he/she is doing! It was a great strategy for an interesting twist! I really admired the characters in this book, and maybe that is what drew me to the book even more, because the two main characters are two strong, independent, intelligent women. They are both the epitome of outstanding lead characters. All of the characters blended nicely together and provided an interesting array of personalities. The story was very engaging and fulfilling and quite easy to just get lost in what is going on. It will take a reader on his/her own, very unique, roller coaster ride, leaving you saying, shew! at the end! Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great, twisty ride! This is the first read from this author and certainly won't be my last! I look forward to see more of Jess Kimball and Helen Sullivan in the future! Disclaimer: This book was provided to me by the author, Diane Capri, in return for an honest/unbiased review.

I quickly realized, however, that by revealing the killer, Capri provides the reader with a sense of intrigue about the killer's motives. Throughout the story, I was on the edge of my seat seeking answers as to why the killer is committing such crimes. This clever tactic by Capri takes the reader to a whole new level in crime thrillers. I was also impressed by the characters in "Fatal Distraction." It was refreshing to read about two strong female characters that work together so seamlessly dispite differing opinions. Although the plot centers around capital punishment, it doesn't follow the time-worn debates that have become customary regarding the issue. Instead, it provides a new perspective on capital punishment and victims' rights that I had not considered. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced page turner and I will be seeking more novels by Diane Capri. Rating: 4 Heat Rating: None Reviewed by: Molly Waters Courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

    This was a fast-paced, suspenseful thriller that kept me engrossed start to finish. I was immediately pulled into the story and literally didn’t want to stop reading.

I particularly enjoyed the respect these two women had for each other and how well they worked together. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller with plenty of twists. This was by no means a who-done-it but a very engaging tale to say the least. It is a most worthy read.

    Jeez, this was intense. I loved every minute of it. As I said in my review of Fatal Enemy, this series reminds me a lot of Furious.

Oliver and Helen were so good together and it was nice to see such a supportive and loving couple represented in print for a change. The mystery itself was riveting and while it wasn't particularly surprising, I still really enjoyed how they got there. And Mike was hilarious all energy and just low key knowing everyone. It was really well written as well and I can't wait to read more of this series. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.

The arsonist and killer of some of these kids was Ben Fleming, a grief counselor and the doctor to all these victims’ families. I never “got” why Ben was so full of hate towards Helen and her husband, Oliver, who was also his patient. It seemed disconnected and unexplained. I really like the Willa Carson books much better. This is the 2nd Jess Kimball book I read that has also not been as good. 6 Stars (11.24 to 12.13.18)

    “Fatal Distraction” (Jess Kimball Book 2) by Diane Capri An explosive and fast paced novel that grips the reader from word one to the last word of the novel. With strong, relatable, and dynamic characters and a plot that is multi-faceted and enthralling, Diane Capri takes the reader on a roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Jess Kimball is a character you will root for, fall in love with, and be inspired by. Rating: 4.7 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This book was an awesome action packed fun read. Jess is a journalist who’s been looking for a son since he disappeared years ago. She strives to help parents who are dealing with losses of their children. As the story develops she becomes involved in a huge mystery. Great cast of characters with a great story line makes this a can’t put down book.

    Good suspense to allow me to step out of my world and get caught up in searching for the bad guy along with a governor and an investigative journalist. In this story, someone is out to destroy the governors life. Once she teams up with Jess the investigative journalist, can the 2 of them identify the murderer before they takes them out. Kept me guessing and on edge of my seat

    This book has wo strong female protagonists. Good story line that reveals the killer fairly early in the book but then we are learning why he is committing the crimes. Likeable characters. I look forward to reading more of Diane Capri’s books.

    3.5 rounded upto 4* I enjoyed the fact that the story is led by two strong female leads, but at times feel the story was too rushed, and could have been expanded on, especially the ending of the book seemed inadequate to the story overall. Should it have been better detailed ending I would have increased the rating.

    This was a good mystery. I didn't like that the bad guys got away with so much, but I did like that the heroine saved the day and was some screaming dumb blonde. Also that she had a male "sidekick". This was a good mystery. I didn't like that the bad guys got away with so much, but I did like that the heroine saved the day and was some screaming dumb blonde.

    The book drew me initially, (I'm originally from the same area!) but once I figured out the antagonist, my interest waned. The book drew me initially, (I'm originally from the same area!) but once I figured out the antagonist, my interest waned.

    I read this as part of Fatal Starts. An ok read. Main characters are developed well enough, lots of action, an awful lot of telling rather than showing. Easy enough to figure out the bad guy.
