Judgment Day by Wanda L. Dyson

Book Description:
Sensational journalism has never been so deadly.
The weekly cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell promises to expose businessmen, religious leaders, and politicians for the lies they tell. Suzanne positions herself as a champion of ethics and morality with a backbone of steel—until a revelation of her shoddy investigation tactics and creative fact embellishing put her in hot water with her employers, putting her credibility in question and threatening her professional ambitions..
Bitter and angry, Suzanne returns home one day to find an entrepreneur she is investigating, John Edward Sterling, unconscious on her living room floor. Before the night is over, Sterling is dead, she has his blood on her hands, and the police are arresting her for murder. She needs help to prove her innocence, but her only hope, private investigator Marcus Crisp, is also her ex-fiancĂ©–the man she betrayed in college.
Marcus and his partner Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne reluctantly agree to take the case, but they won’t cut Suzanne any slack. Exposing her lack of ethics and the lives she’s destroyed in her fight for ratings does little to make them think Suzanne is innocent. But as Marcus digs into the mire of secrets surrounding her enemies, he unveils an alliance well-worth killing for. Now all he has to do is keep Suzanne and Alex alive long enough to prove it.

My Thoughts:
I very much enjoyed this book! Suzanne is a show host who does her own research. She absolutely loves breaking stories and seems to go out of her way to drag everyone's dirty laundry out. Her boss tells her to tone it down, get sources, and drop one certain story but she refuses. Soon the tables are turned on her and she is arrested for murder when the police arrive at her home and find a body and her with blood literally on her hands. She hires the best PI there is, it just happens to be her ex-fiance and his partner, the ex whom she betrayed in college. Marcus isn't happy about taking the case but he and Alex agreed to take it on. Now they just have to all stay alive to prove Suzanne's innocence.
I absolutely loved Marcus and Alex. They were wonderful people, each has their flaws and issues but that is life. I never did really like Suzanne but I half think that was the point of the whole book. You just like to dislike Suzanne. She has no morals, ethics and seems a complete conspiracy theorist. The twists in the book were unexpected. Lots of suspense and just overall a good book!
4/5 this was a good suspenseful read that anyone would enjoy!

Thank you to Librarything for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.


  1. This sounds like my sort of book. Thanks for a great review.

  2. Ashley, this is Megan, long time girl!!..COngrats on the Baby girl, such a perfect little family. Our life is crazy as ever right now, I havent been able to write about it because of a hopefully pending lawsuit, a nutshell....Gage broke his leg in September (little buckle fracture), the mean orthopedic just out of school, put him in a cast to tight, I called that evening and 5 times the next morning saying his circulation was compromised, finally after being blown off...I went up there and demanded them to cut the cast off, they did but never looked at his foot, 3 days later I took off the splint and discovered a ulcer almost to the bone on his heel and two on the top of his foot, he has been seeing a wound care doc ever since, his leg healed after two weeks but his pressure sore from the cast cutting off circulation is still a open wound 3.5 months later, he gets it scrapped weekly etc, may need skin graphs. So that is a nutshell, it is hard to find a attorney willing to sue ETMC locally so we are looking in Houston and have a few nibbles, I am NOT letting them get away with this. Blah blah,,,,anyway shot me a email, pictures are a must!...I love your new blog, fancy even! and are in awe of how you do it with the kiddos around. Wonder women indeed.
