The Description

Publication Date: May 21, 2024

The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Identity presents a suspenseful new novel of tragedy and trauma, love and family, and the evil that awaits.

As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother’s. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie’s handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they’re about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb.

Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened.

The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea’s vision, their parents’ killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse—because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them—and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head…

The Review

Simply on name recognition alone, author Nora Roberts pulls in a wide variety of readers. Her versatility is demonstrated by her vast catalog of romance, fantasy, and suspense titles.

Mind Games draws upon the rich character development expected from the author and integrates a taste of the supernatural.

The story opens with the two Fox children, 12-year-old Thea and 10-year-old Rem, settling in for a summer visit with Grammie Lucy in a small Appalachian community.

When tragedy strikes, Thea sees it all in her mind. It’s a horrific way to discover she has inherited a gift that is much stronger than her grandmother’s. While Thea’s assistance puts Ray Riggs behind bars, it sets the stage for a shared mental link between Riggs and Thea.

The push/pull over the years mirrors the battle between good and evil. Even in solitary confinement, Riggs repeatedly tries to attack Thea via their psychic connection. It will take all of her skills to finally break free.

Life in Appalachia, depicted by a slower pace and a focus on homemade things, serves to enforce a sense of home for the Fox siblings. When Thea’s teen crush moves in next door, romance is in the air. Will Thea get a happily ever after?

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.
