#WOTR19 – #Review – Order of Malice (The Order Series Book 2) by Lisa Caviness

 

Order of Malice (The Order Series Book 2)

 

rmed with a new identity, Reid Patterson plans to join the FBI hoping to right the wrongs of The Order, a sinister faction controlled by his murderous, biological family. But Reid’s plans go awry when a young girl pleads for his help, bringing fresh threats, a beautiful woman, and a thrill-seeking boy. The countdown begins ticking toward a fiery contest of will and passion.

Foster care psychologist Holly Babson, dreams of a life where her escaped convict father and the memories of her sister’s horrific death are both locked away. While helping a runaway teen, death returns to her doorstep, revealing the teen’s connection to The Order. Holly’s life pivots as her past, her fears, and her heart are locked in vicious turmoil.

Denied a place in The Order, wealthy businessman Ivan Sinclair will stop at nothing to reclaim the top seat in his family’s insidious organization. A deadly game is his vehicle to amass even more power.

Reid and Holly’s worlds collide with the diabolical force of The Order, and Ivan’s cold-blooded plot. Together, they must fight for their lives while learning to trust their hearts.

 

Reader beware, you are about to be sucked into another insanely twisted game of the Order. You will not be able to put this book down until the very end. And once this story is finished……well you will have to see.

 

I love where this author’s mind is while writing these stories. The Order is like nothing I have ever read before. The Order has a reach much further than I expected. And the impact that the Order has on all the characters with the crazy and intense amount of planning that went into their shenanigans is incredible. It’s like the mafia on steroids! “…..a bunch of crazy people with blind allegiance to a deranged ideology.”

 

Reid (the new identity of Walker from the previous book) is surprised when a girl approaches him and claims to be his niece, Lila. Along with Lila we meet her best friend Cody and the social worker, Holly, that watches over Lila. What we find out is that each character, Reid, Lila, Cody, and Holly all have their own secrets. Everyone is dealing with a demon from their past and each in turn find out that they are all intertwined in the end. The Order has this group going on a crazy scavenger hunt to pick up the Order’s artifacts, ultimately to bring them back to the Grand Commander, the leader of the Order. The only problem with this is that there are several different players that think they are the leader. There is a huge power play going on and our group is right in the middle.

 

This story is so far from predictable. I got to the point where I didn’t even try to figure out what the next play was but to just let the story ride out. It is quite the thriller with intense twists but with a touch of love at the end of the day. The only problem is that when this ends…..there is more, so much more…..

 

Can’t wait to read the end of the series with The Order of Rage. I’m on pins and needles trying to figure out who will make it out on top and alive! A must read! Bravo, Lisa Caviness!!!

Lisa Caviness

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Lisa Caviness. I’m originally from the Midwest but I lived in the Boston area for a number of years before moving to Indiana. I have a degree in Nursing and have worked in various positions in healthcare including as a psychiatric nurse and as a research project manager for pharmaceutical and medical device clinical trials. I have three children, a busy attorney husband, and an adorable black cat that comes to stay with me on occasion.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I don’t have a special place to write but when working at home I often move from my desk to various locations around the house. I also write in the car, usually when we’re going to visit my parents in Ohio (and my husband is driving of course!) or while waiting for one of kids at soccer practice, piano, or one of the other many activities they are involved in. I usually don’t eat and write but I will often have tea or coffee.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

My favorite things about attending signings are talking to readers as enthusiastic as I am about books. I also enjoy meeting authors and collecting new books of my own to read.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

That’s a hard question because I have several favorites who I believe are great authors. If I had to settle on one I’d choose Nora Roberts because her books started my love of the romantic suspense genre.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory was the thrill and emotion of publishing my first book. The first time I saw my words in print was a special moment I thought I’d never have. It was a lot of hard work and a moment I’ll never forget.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Order of Fear by Lisa Caviness

 

Order of Fear

 

Sometimes fear is all that keeps you alive.

Murder
A senior account, ballet dancer, and future bride, Marissa Nash likes order, and she expects all the pieces of her life to add up. Her bottom line is skewed after she discovers her fiancé has been unfaithful. When Marissa walks in to the unexpected—David dead and her dog, Halo, agitated and restless, she finds her nightmare is only beginning.

Passion
David’s unenthused best man and traumatized former Army doctor, Justin Tanner understands that a wedding means more than a toast and a kiss. His reluctance stems from feelings that run deeper than they should for the bride. But when he finds Marissa cradling his best friend’s lifeless body, can he find a way to suppress his feelings as they uncover David’s secret world?

Evil
The seemingly pointless murder launches Marissa and Justin into a wicked web of lies, delusion and danger at the hands of a powerful and psychotic foe.

Murder, passion, evil—who will survive?

 

Goodreads

 

5 very suspenseful stars! Oh. My. Wow! I don’t know why it took me so long to read this but holy hell I got hooked! This story is an incredible web woven with deceit, lies, loyalty, and passion. This is one of those books that starts out with a bang and and never stops until the very, very end. An absolute page turner!

 

First, Marissa….she is about to get married and is gone on a business trip. She is planning to call off her wedding to David when she returns because she found out he has been unfaithful to her. Things go awry and she is late coming home but when she does she finds David’s dead body in their home.

 

Second, Justin….the best man is super agitated with David as he hasn’t been able to reach him for days. He goes to the house to find Marissa cradling David’s dead body.

 

From here the story gets twisted!!!!! The two are being followed, an explosion happens and people are dying all around them. A coincidence? NOOOOOOO! Just keep going….Not everyone is who they seem but can you figure out who doesn’t belong? Nope! Not ‘til the end! This roller coaster of a story keeps you rooting for Marissa and Justin but then….do you? I was so back and forth with the idea of them and exactly how this was all going to pan out that I just couldn’t stop reading. And let me tell you about the bad guys. I don’t know what was going on in the author’s mind at the time of writing the antagonists but daaaaang are they bad! Written so good but soooo bad! The story is full of heightened emotions and ends up being very evil. Full of danger with the exact right amount of passion and love. An absolute must read!
