Book Review ~ Joe (The Joe Knowe Series) by H.D. Gordon

by H.D. Gordon

From the author of the Alexa Montgomery Saga, comes a book that will take you into the mind of a genuine psychopath, the lives of six ordinary people, and the world of a very special girl named Joe.

Joe is seemingly an ordinary college student. She works, studies and reads. But in between these activities Joe has a gift that promises to add a dose of color to her life at any given moment. Joe sees things before they happen. Bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. Someone is planning a massacre at the college university that Joe attends, and the only person with a hope of stopping the psychopath is her.

Oh, the beauty of foresight. More like a curse. Joe has four days to figure out the mystery, make plans to take down the psycho, and save the lives of people. People like you and me. Ordinary people.

My Thoughts
I am not going to recap what this book is about, because quite frankly, the synopsis sums it up pretty good.  With that being said.......

Joe is a must read!  Full of mystery, suspense and thrills, I simply could not put it down.  Although this story is told from the perspective of several different people, it flowed effortlessly.  Not once was I confused on what the heck was going on. From the very beginning, I really felt for Joe and was cheering her on.  She felt she was not a hero, but I disagree.  She was more than a hero and if there was a real ‘Joe’, I would give her a great big hug.

Ms. Gordon definitely has written a top-notch novel that not only was flawlessly written but the character development was fantastic.  The reader really starts to feel a connection to each character and can’t help but be drawn into their lives.  Although this story wrapped up nicely, the ending does leave an opening for the second book in this series, Joe 2, White Sheets.

I highly recommend Joe if you love a good psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat with non-stop action and suspense. 

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars
