4.5-STAR REVIEW: A KNOCK ON THE DOOR by Roberta K. Fernandez

About The Book

Publication Date: October 4, 2022

Lori Crawford’s world is turned upside down when her husband dies in a car accident. After twenty-five years of marriage, she thought she would forever live an uncomplicated, happy life with Jack. But just as Lori feels she’s coming out on the other side of her grief, Jack’s assistant at SpringWare, Rita Johnson, discovers information that convinces her that Jack was murdered.

​The two women vow to bring the perpetrator to justice. But time is running out, and their names are on someone’s kill list. The truth takes them down a path they never could have suspected. They set out to bring down one of the most powerful men in the country: the director of the National Security Agency. But who will believe them? And how many more will die before they do? Now, they have to decide if they have the courage—and the ability—to finish what they started.

The Review

Lori Crawford has no reason to suspect her husband’s sudden death is anything other than an accident. However, when she receives evidence pointing out that Jack was murdered, she’s determined to bring those responsible to justice.

Author Roberta Fernandez rolls out a powerful cast of female characters who team up to find answers in A Knock on the Door. Rita, Jack’s long-time coworker, discovers he was actually working on a software project for NSA and was targeted after he pointed out problems that his boss dismissed.

With the help of Nathan, a homicide reporter, the effort to expose a governmental plot gets kicked into high gear amid some devastating news. There’s plenty of old-fashioned investigative work on display as the tension mounts.

The author’s depiction of the story’s villains highlights the dangers of greed, especially for those who are supposed to be protecting the country.

The main characters, while certainly nervous about being next on the hit list, come up with unique ways to communicate and avoid discovery. Lori’s character shines for her strong sense of resilience.

A Knock on the Door proves to be an accurate title for this action-packed thriller. Lori and Nathan make a good team as they search for justice.

About The AuthorIn her sixty-three years of life, Roberta Fernandez, a board-certified hypnotist, didn’t know that she had a story waiting to be told.

In 2006, she attended a weeklong memoir-writing class conducted by a bestselling author, Joyce Maynard. Joyce worked hard to bring out Roberta’s best work, in spite of her self-perceived lack of talent. While it was an awesome experience to be instructed by a well-known author, Roberta determined that writing about herself was not a talent she possessed.

As a first-time author, Roberta now understands she was simply destined to write in a different genre. She enjoys creating relatable characters and watching the story unfold as she types. Like her readers, she wonders what’s going to happen next. A sequel is already being written as this book is published. Who knows what words will flow across the page in the next fifteen years!

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
