Stolen Laughter on Sale




Stolen Laughter on Sale February 18-20


We are excited to announce that Stolen Laughter will be on sale for only $2.99 for three days in the Kindle Store. If you haven't read this book yet, we hope you will give it a try. Then, if you want to follow the characters, you can read the sequel, Terminal Identity.

Our readers are telling us they love the characters in these books that include Bryce Cameron and his brother Quinn, and the women who love them. Hannah Brody and Dixie Lee King are as different as two women can be. Hannah is a psychologist, and Dixie is a waitress in a diner, but they lost their hearts to the Cameron brothers who are from a wealthy family in Atlanta.

Here's what one reviewer said:

"Fascinating, intriguing, and absolutely an excellent read is the romantic mystery, Stolen Laughter by Tess Thompson. Starting with the prologue, the characters are believable and invite the reader to become invested in their lives. One of the many things that I like about the Tess Thompson style of writing is their ability to give the reader the amount of information needed to form a mind's eye picture, but not so much that the reader gets bored with minutia. Sometimes the reader doesn't realize that what seems unimportant to the storyline is really expertly and intricately woven into the plot.

For me, guessing the direction that the novel will take is part of the fun of reading a novel, and I love to be right, but in this case, I was totally surprised, which a good thing. This book is truly filled with unexpected twists and turns. Although sequels are not something that I think about or hope for, but in this case, I would love to see a sequel because Juliette intrigues me."
     --Halley Glen


Be sure to get your copy while it is on sale.

Here's a Peek at Our Reviews and an Excerpt from Terminal Identity.


Dear Readers,


Here’s hoping each and every one of you had a restful and joyful Christmas season and that you have a wonderful new year in 2019. Judi and I have enjoyed reading the reviews that our novels are receiving. Here are just a few:


When an Angel Whispers  (Buy it here.) 




“This is the first book I have read in this genre and I loved it. The next two are on my to read list. This is a page turner you won't want to put down until you figure out who is doing it and even then, you won't believe it. So well written page turning gripping suspense thriller. Loved it. Highly recommend. Can't wait to read the next one in this series.”  G. S.

"I voluntarily read an arc of this book for an honest review. This was very well written. The characters are amazing and I loved the psychic twist to the story. I was a little surprised by the multiple storylines until the end where it made sense and actually added to the story. The serial killer aspect of the story was really creepy and everything you’d imagine and the chemistry between not just the main characters but the peripheral characters was very good. I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want it to end. I saw where there’s two sequels and I’m going read them. I need to know more about these amazing characters." -- L. P.


Stolen Laughter (Buy it here.)



“Wow what a rollercoaster ride. Twists and turns abound. This is a great read, mystery, intrigue, it pulls at your heart strings and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I recommend it to all.”  --C.R.

 “A suspense filled mystery with a lovely romance between 2 beautiful characters. Lots of twists and turns. I thought that I knew which direction the story was headed and then it would change. Kept my interest from the first page to the last. Couldn't wait to see how it ended!!” --L.P.


“I could not put the story down. Lots of surprises and suspense, without the same old love story or mystery like so many other books available. Absolutely enjoyed this tale!” --J.T.





Terminal Identity, the sequel to Stolen Laughter is available now in the Kindle store.


 In Terminal Identity, the stand-alone sequel to Stolen Laugher, Juliette Dreschler awakens to a startling reality. She is only a shell of the woman she used to be after a life-altering accident left her both physically and mentally changed and now someone has marked her for death.


Lenny Raines has been hired to keep the young, fragile woman safe and to determine who and why someone wants to harm her. Lenny isn’t your average hero and has scars of his own from a troubled and dangerous past. He is intrigued by Juliette’s stubborn determination and admires her courage in the face of danger. 


Lenny tries to push aside the growing intense feelings he has for Juliette, because the last time he became involved it almost cost him everything. As a killer emerges from the shadows, Lenny must risk everything to protect the woman he loves.

We are working on our next romantic suspense novel with an entirely new cast of characters. We hope you will love them as much as we do. It will be published in the fall of 2019.


Happy New Year! We really appreciate you.

Thanks for reading,
