Blind Influence, Blind Persuasion, Blind Alliance, & Cloaked
Here’s what some readers had to say about the #BlindSeries!
- Interwoven plots of international intrigue propel the story line. Through all the twists and turns, the author uses solid dialogue and three-dimensional characters to keep the pages turning! There is a visual experience in the words that demonstrate her other talents. Linda is equal parts writer and artist – a rare combination that brings her story to life!
- Suspenseful, moving. Kept my attention. Did not want to put the book down. Intertwined characters & anxious to know how their relationships change in book 3. Author did great research to provide authenticity.
- Our book club ordered everyone an autographed copy directly from the author. We had read the first two books in the series, and loved meeting Linda at a book signing event. So once they arrived, we moved the selection to the current month’s gathering. We couldn’t wait to talk about the third book in the “Blind” series! The first question asked was “When is the next one coming out?!” Blind Alliance”continues the intrigue, character development, and plot twists so artfully crafted by this author. This series does an excellent job of capturing the undercurrents, intrigue, and power broker maneuverings of political life.
- Took me only 2 days of intermittent reading to read Cloaked-shows how amazing and intense the drama and suspense were. Absolutely did not want to put it down. Love the characters and the complexity of their relationships-constantly guessing from page to page as to what might happen next…ready for the next book in the series to see WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN. Great job, author Linda!!!
