Hell to Pay by Wendy Corsi Staub

Lucy and Jeremy Cavalon are in love, married and expecting a baby. After two miscarriages, this time they are afraid to get their hopes up, but they are being extremely careful. Unfortunately, they don't have a lot of money and when their landlord evicts them for no reason, they don't have anywhere to go. It's sad, yet fortunate, that Jeremy's grandmother recently passed away. She slipped in the tub and drowned. Now, her apartment is vacant, and it will be somewhere Jeremy and Lucy can stay for awhile rent free until they get back on their feet.

Unknown to Jeremy and Lucy, someone is watching them. Jeremy's grandmother's death may have looked accidental, but it wasn't. Someone from their past, whom they believe to be dead, is set on members of the Walsh and Cavalon families to pay for their sins. Lucy Walsh was kidnapped when she was a child but eventually was freed. Jeremy was also kidnapped but was taken from his loving foster home and sent overseas. He spent his childhood years with a pedophile.

Both with a haunted and tragic past, their love for one another and the hope of their new baby gives them hope for the future. But someone is determined that Jeremy will perish and convinced that the child is the new messiah. Anyone that gets in the way will meet a tragic fate. Action-packed, emotional and suspenseful, HELL TO PAY is an adrenaline pumping read.

  1. My very favourite mystery author.
    Thanks for a great review, I cannot wait to get my hands on this book. It isn't out in Canada yet.
    If you get a chance read Don't Scream, wow, what a read. I have never been disappointed by her books yet. The Jeremy storyline keeps you wanting more.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
