Results of my research query on mystery, suspense, thriller fiction.

Hello my dear readers,
Remember the question I asked about the difference between mysteries, suspense and thrillers? Well, I made a fascinating discovery. Although these three genres are very similar, here are the differences I found. Mistry stories are more of an investigation, asking what, when, where, how, and why a crime took place, and finding clues to solve the mystery. Suspense novels are similar, but they have more of an element of danger with in the pages of the novel. Thrillers, have an element of danger at every turn. They’re like riding a roller coaster throughout the pages of the novel. What do you think about these three genres? Do you find them similar, or do you see the differences? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Please answer a research question for an article I am writing

Hello there dear readers,
I am writing an article for the word matters blog at http://ernestdempsey.com and I am here to request your help in my research. Since most of you either read or write in some capacity or other, here’s my question: What is the difference between detective/mystery fiction, versus suspense novels/thrillers? I know that they both have some of the same qualities. For example, they are both mysteries of one kind or another, and second of all, they both leave you asking questions until the very end. The more fascinating question is, what makes the categories different from one another? Please add your thoughts to this discussion in the comments below, because I want to see what writers and readers think about this subject. Happy reading and writing, and have a blessed day.

Danger in the Shadows: Prequel to the O’Malley Series, a book review

If you like suspense novels, but don’t like the blood and guts of hard core thrillers, I have the perfect Christian suspense novel for you. I just finished a compilation by Dee Henderson called Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story and Danger in the Shadows” Prequel to the O’Malley series. Although Jennifer touched my heart in a special way, it left me wanting more. However, When I read Danger in the shadows, I could feel the tension, and I had a hard time putting it down.
When She was six years old, Sarah Walsh and her twin sister were kidnapped by two madmen and tied up in a cellar for nine days with nothing but a small bottle of water between them.Since Sarah’s rescue, she has been threatened by one of her kidnappers, while the other is behind bars. Security is tight around Sarah, and if the kidnapper sends her and her brother’s father a package containing one of her favorite mementos, she has to disappear. However, she meets Adam while being stuck in a dark elevator. Is she able to get past her fear of the dark, and her fear of being found again? Will she allow herself to fall in love and be happy?
I not only find this book a good read, because it is somewhat similar to A Journey of Faith, but Dee Henderson is a great writer, who captivates her readers, and keeps you inthralled in her story until the very end. I give both Jennifer and Danger in the Shadows books a 5* rating.
