Here is a bundle of the first books in two different series—the Stella Fall FBI Suspense Thriller series and the Ilse Beck Suspense Thriller series—all in one convenient place. This bundle offers a great introduction to each series with over 100,000 words of reading.
In HIS OTHER WIFE (Book #1), Stella seems to have her whole life ahead of her: she has just graduated with a dual masters in Psychology and Criminal Justice, she is engaged to the man of her dreams after a whirlwind romance, and she is moving to the East Coast with him as she prepares for the wedding and searches for a dream job, hoping to be a criminal profiler. She is unbelievably excited for her life together with Chris—until she meets his family. Stella, from a humble Midwestern upbringing, never felt comfortable around money, and she hates the world Chris comes from. She is in shock at the culture clash as she gets to know his elitist family and friends, all of whom look down on her. Isolated and demeaned, Stella wonders if she can live a life in such hostile surroundings. They move into the guest house on his estate, and things only get worse. As Stella meets his ex and his friends at his club, all of whom seem to know something she doesn’t, she wonders if Chris is really the man she thought he was. As she learns more about his past and discovers his dark side, she wonders if she has made a big mistake. Beneath its trimmed hedgerows and gleaming storefronts, Stella soon realizes that this wealthy town hides terrible secrets. But before she can decide what to do, a murder leaves her blindsided. Stella, implicated, her future on the line, has no choice but to investigate. As her dreams devolves into hell, Stella, still struggling to overcome her own traumatic past, questions everything around her—including her own sanity. Can she find the killer, and clear her name, before it’s too late?
In NOT LIKE US (Book #1), FBI Special Agent Ilse Beck barely escaped a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest—and now, he is hunting her again. Or is he? Beck, a niche expert in serial killer survivors, has faced many monsters, and seen shocking cases—but this one may be the worst of all. Nothing can prepare Ilse for her new patient, a survivor from a near murder by a serial killer. The patient, paranoid, believes she is still being watched by the killer. And when the killer claims a new victim, the FBI needs Ilse’s help to solve it. This case and this killer, though, strike too close to home for Ilse’s comfort. When she realizes that she herself is being targeted, the trauma of her own past comes full circle. Can Ilse use her brilliant instincts to enter the mind of this killer and stop him before he strikes again? And will she save herself?
Dark and suspenseful crime thrillers, the STELLA FALL and ILSE BECK series are breathtaking page-turners, unputdownable mystery and suspense novels. With compelling and perplexing psychological thrillers, rife with twists and jaw-dropping secrets, they will make you fall in love with their brilliant new female protagonists, while they keeps you shocked late into the night.
