“What You Reading Now?” Review

I am not a huge fan of psycho-thriller because to be honest with ya, I let my mind run away from me way to often and I know that it is important for me to keep my mind on good things, like the things that are lovely, pure, of good report, etc (like Gal 5 says).

I was given the opportunity to read Nicole’s novella and I was blown away. I was captivated and read the book in one sitting! I could not put it down. I was intrigued by the developing relationship between the killer and Allie (the main character). Nicole successfully revealed the many sides of the killer, including his sick and twisted mind.

This violently graphic novella is more than just a thriller, Nicole intertwines many conversations of Allie and her killer that not only show both of their personalities and beliefs, but also teaches the reader a little something about life, family and self.

Keeping Her in the Light is a  riveting thriller and is exceptionally well written and is captivating novella that is clean, fresh and deep. I recommend this to psycho-thriller lovers everywhere.

Nicole has a deep mind, a clean and captivating writing style and I see her going far with her talents.

Short Review by The Social Frog

This story is a twisted tale of a man, a serial killer who keeps a young woman hostage in his mansion to prove to himself that Stockholm syndrome is real.This is a short but very good read, especially for such a young writer. It is a psychological thriller that deals with a lot of mind games and mans desire to test a theory or two about human nature.

Some parts of the book were overly descriptive but did not take away from the story nor did it add to it. I felt the ending of the book was a little flat but at the same time it left me wanting to read more, to know more about this odd man, the killer. It leaves much to the imagination at the end.

I highly recommend this book, the positives outweigh any negatives and for being 16 years old at the time she wrote this, I do believe she has a great future ahead of her in writing books!
