A Thriller – Vanished in the Sun by Lynda Filler (A Review)

One of the best things about being a reader of indie authors is watching them develop and master their craft from book to book. I have been able to do that with Lynda Filler and her Carlos and Mia series, with first Target in the Sun and now the sequel, Vanished in the Sun.Although I did really enjoy Target in the Sun, there were some issues about Filler’s style that I found grated a little on me, in that book. In Vanished in the Sun, I’m pleased to say that she has addressed these issues and like any good indie author has become more eloquent and more adventurous in her plots. Vanished in the Sun takes up the story of Mia and Carlos some time after their escape from Mexico to Spain to avoid Carlos’ drug cartel family after Carlos had shopped them all to the FBI. In Vanished in the Sun we see a lot more focus on characters who were only bit players in Target. Lucia and Sofia become main characters in this story with excellent plot arcs for them.What I found with Lynda Filler and Vanished in the Sun is that she is growing as a writer all the time and this is a fantastic sign for what will still be to come from her pen.Vanished in the Sun is a fast-moving, realistic, thriller that is absolutely appropriate and timely in today’s current environment. What is really happening inside the Mexican drug war? Filler’s wonderful novel gives one possible scenario. If you like fast-paced thrillers, this is the book for you.Thoroughly enjoyed this read and look forward to reading more in the future from this talented author who is clearly growing in confidence with every book.Please do pop on over to my website and check out the many hundreds of books I’ve read and reviewed. Who knows? You may well find your next exciting read amongst these wonderful books. http://bit.ly/2lQJiqi

New Release VANISHED in the SUN, Book 2 Carlos and Mia

VANISHED in the SUN, second edition of this exhilarating romance thriller series by powerfully engaging novelist Lynda Filler is finally here! Reminiscent of TARGET in the SUN, first edition in the series, ‘VANISHED’ is an exciting and natural extension to the debut novel in which we saw lovers Mia and Carlos ultimately find a new lease on life through the serenity and safety of witness protection at an undisclosed location. Feeling secure after three years, Mia and Carlos would soon discover a mutual desire to return to their beloved Puerto Vallarta. Their ultimate safety is jeopardised for their decision.
Lucia, the infamous and decorated FBI agent who helped Mia and Carlos disappear, changes her identity and retires to the sultry beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She re-unites with the lovers in romantic Paris, France and finds herself in the middle of terrorist events beyond her control. The respite of her newfound freedom is disrupted when the telephone rings and she, Carlos and Mia, are summoned to the call of duty once more.
Central to the storyline is a large group of students who hijack three busses from a cartel stronghold in the Sierra Madres of Mexico that will transport them to an annual human rights demonstration in Mexico City. Upon arrival to the venue, the students are soon accosted and taken into custody by brutal and heavily armed cartel ‘soldiers’.
This high anxiety thriller takes us from the sultry beaches of the Mexican Riviera deep inside Guerrero State into densely wooded jungle where the dreamy landscape takes on dark and sinister undertones.
Lynda Filler captures the exquisite flavor of life in coastal Puerto Vallarta through yet another of her powerful romance thriller novels; crimson sunsets, golden beaches, the sexy allure of lovers meeting and taking chances, quaint local village cafes and fresh seafood dining. There is a dark and sinister underbelly to this Shangri-La; its surroundings teeming with the evils of drug lords and their ruthless cartels in a deadly war for control of a killer trade.
VANISHED in the SUN; this is Lynda Filler at her finest.

Target In The Sun; Review & Nomination

Thank you so kindly.

TARGET IN THE SUN opens with a powerful glimpse of what promises to be an exceptional reader experience:

‘TARGET IN THE SUN’, A MOVING, HIGH ANXIETY ROMANCE THRILLER, TAKES US ON A PERILOUS JOURNEY THROUGH THE EXPLOSIVE DARK UNDERWORLD OF ORGANIZED DRUG TRAFFICKING AND THE COMPLEX, DESTRUCTIVE HUMAN PERILS OF USE, ABUSE AND THE CARNAGE IT LEAVES IN ITS UNSTOPPABLE WAKE. CAUGHT UP IN THE ONSLAUGHT IS THE POWERFULLY ENGAGING NURTURE OF TWO LOVERS, CARLOS AND MIA, DISCOVERING AND REACHING OUT IN A WORLD THAT COULD ULTIMATELY TEAR THEM APART.
An infant loses both his parents tragically and spends his youth and young adulthood in disconnected search and longing, surviving on the streets of coastal Mexico where the beauty and allure of his homeland mix with his relentless desire to belong.
Anticipation builds as powerful human emotions span a search for love, acceptance and belonging to existence in a world wrought with escalating illicit drug trade from the depths of lush Mexican jungles across borders in a vast network of distribution throughout America. An expansive coalition of drug enforcement agencies on both sides of the border mount a fierce campaign of surveillance and seizure with swift and destructive assault on the drug lords their ultimate objective.
All the while a young boy struggles with the heart-wrenching prospect of a life of loneliness, sadness, anger, and an unwavering resistance to commitment. Amidst the turmoil of surroundings and circumstance a boy becomes a man in a search for belonging that leads a troubled soul on a dangerous romp from the sultry Mexican Riviera beaches to the heat of coastal nightclubs and salacious entanglements behind closed doors.
As time passes, Mia’s visits to Puerto Vallarta become more frequent and her relationship with Carlos becomes ever-clearer. At first mere carnal instinct, a conquest of pleasures, life events and new acquaintance bring discovery, emotional attachment and a burning desire for enduring love as it was always meant to be.
‘Target In The Sun’ is an impassioned story of search and longing for the ultimate connection.
