Vicki Pettersson is a NYT and USA Today bestselling author of ten novels, most set in her hometown of Las Vegas. Though she’ll ever consider that glittering dustbowl home, she now divides her time between Vegas and Dallas,Texas, where she’s learning to like good Tex-Mex (easy) and the Dallas Cowboys (easier than you’d think).

Her most recent release is SWERVE, aptly titled as it’s both a chase book and a hard departure from her fantasy work. A pure adrenaline, white-knucked thriller, Swerve releases on July 7, 2015 — perfect for the novel’s Fourth of July setting. If you’re looking for a romance with little to no violence … this is not your novel. If, as with her other work, you’re looking for a strong female protagonist who comes out swinging when pushed into a corner, then perhaps you can connect.

One woman. One killer.Sprinting against the clock, and uncertain if danger lies ahead or behind, Kristine must blaze an epic path through the gaudy flash of roadside casinos, abandoned highway stops, and a landscape rife with horrors never before imagined. Desperate to save her doomed husband-to-be, Kristine must summon long forgotten resources if she’s to go head-to-head against this unpredictable killer. And she’d better hurry. Because she only has twenty-four hours…to make one hell of a trip.

Swerve was an uncomfortable thriller. I was on the edge of my seat not knowing what horror awaited me next. If you like physiological horror you should definitely give this a try. This story was really good. I am calling this an uncomfortable thriller because the protagonist didn’t do anything wrong, she had […]
