Synopsis (Goodreads):

In upstate New York, Brett and Pamela Jameson find the house of their dreams on twenty acres of land. Bucolic and serene, it is the answer to all of their prayers. But their dream soon turns into a nightmare when violent ex-gang member Rory Madden, the property’s former owner returns, and will stop at nothing to reclaim the home he lost to foreclosure. Rory unearths the secrets hidden within the Jameson family, and begins to leverage his knowledge to slowly drive wedges between them. When their seventeen year-old daughter Justine falls prey to Rory’s advances, she becomes a co-conspirator, setting about a series of increasingly treacherous events that could forever tear the Jameson family apart. A terrifying odyssey into the dark side of the American dream, No One to Hear You Scream captures the fear of the modern middle-class, the alienation of those left out, and the heart-stopping terror at the realization that it can all be taken away in an instant.

What I Think:

This is actually a very good book since I've read the last thriller book and review it on the blog. The author really got me hooked with all the suspense and twists. The book is more like a psycho-thriller book that would make you wonder and keep guessing what is going to happen and who's the culprit. The mysteries of the past also mysterious to the readers. The plot is well organized and so detail but not too dragged to make you lost interest. The storyline of dysfunctional family, with every members have their own issues, makes the story well-blended and resulting a great thrill. Am definitely will wait for her next book in future.

About the Author:

Julia Madeleine is the youngest daughter of Irish immigrant parents from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Born in Canada and raised in a small town in southern-western Ontario on the shores of Lake Huron, Julia honed her dual passions for art and fiction writing from the time she was old enough to hold a crayon. As a teenager she moved to Toronto and graduated in Media Writing from Sheridan College. She wrote for a number of entertainment magazines, while spending all her free time writing fiction, and then in 2000, her passion for art led her, quite by accident, into a career in the tattoo industry.

Hello dear friends! I know that no one ever miss my absence on the net but I feel very haapy because now I can go back to my old life. Blogging, reading and reviews, reding at leasure etc etc etc.

However, working life is very challenging. I don't know why I ever want to study so hard and get a very pathetic and boring, very boring job. Haha. It's not that I don't lik my work by I kind of in a way, trying to adapt with it. God, being collage student is way too easy than working. Welcome to independent life folks!

So that being said, my everyday schedule is very tight, plus, I'm a newlywed bride! Having 2Ws (Working and Wife) is not easy. And imagine I cook everyday! So there you have it, working, being a wife, cooking, reading, extra workload from office, and planning to be a student again, oh-oh...

I can't imagine if I have kids in future. So bookworms out there who is a wife, working, being a mum, you are gems! Super bionic-woman!

Then I need to update a lot of things. I hosted a challenge last year and still not updating the it (participants, please forgive me and promise will let you know something about it!), my own challenge for 2012 (I didnt finish any of the book challenges last year, so it was very pathethic and I still can feel how lame I am right now), also need to catch up with other blogger buddies (if they still remember me lol) and etc etc etc.

I change my blog layout. I know it's too girlish and too pinkish, but I dont care. Haha. I still think a professional layout is better but I need something colorful and bright to cheer up my every boring day.

Keep in touch dear friends and hope I'm still welcomed in this big wide world community. =)

Darlyn.
