Join Sharon Donovan, author of the suspense thriller novel, Mask of the Betrayer (Whimsical Publications), as she virtually tours the blogosphere  on her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book.

Mask of the BetrayerIn Mask of the Betrayer, Michael DeVeccio is the nephew of a gangster Carlos DeVeccio who raised Michael since he was twelve and taught him that it was acceptable to kill anyone who gets in your way. Michael is rich, believes he is God and a psychopath. He wants the DeVeccio dynasty to live on and when he meets Margot, he thinks she is the one to carry on the DeVeccio legacy. There is a  serial killer on the loose called the Red Rock Slasher who leaves his signature-a skull mask on the corpse. When  A homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment of a case never solved ten years ago-all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.  What happens to Margot and does Michael get what he deserves? I guess you have to read the book to find out.

My Thoughts-

I loved the book but I really disliked Michael. I was at the edge of my seat and I wanted Margot to run away and get away from the psychopath. It was hard for me to put the book down. I was happy it was summer vacation and I did not read it on a school night. The characters were developed fully and I could feel Margot's emotions. There was twists and turns throughout the book that made it even more exciting. This was one of the best books that I have read this year! I cannot wait to see what happens to Margot in the next book of the series, Vendetta.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.

  1. Lovely review Melissa, I'll pass it on to Sharon, I'm sure she'll be thrilled. (As I said on your tour post, she's currently in hospital and unable to comment herself.) I loved this book too, and Sharon did a wonderful job of creating a villain that the heroine could love, while the reader loaths him, willing her to get away from him quickly!


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward in reading all of your great comments. Have a great day!
