Loved this book. The way the characters were introduced was great. Every chapter left me wanting to go to the next one. The first book I ever read in one day. I can’t wait for the next one!
"Please tell me there will be a sequel to this book!"
Not my usual cup of tea, but I drank the whole pot!
“I won’t spoil it for others, but WHY did you do that?? You know what I’m talking about! I couldn’t believe it. A must read!!”
Congratulations on this fabulous page-turner! I loved how you kept the reader on the edge! My favorite aspect of your story is the theme of ordinary people standing up for what is right. Great story, and I can’t wait for the sequel!
A thrilling story that begins with Lori’s life being upended by a car accident that takes the life of her husband. Lori starts to come out of the fog of her grief and her life again is turned upside down. Her husband’s former assistant shows Lori evidence that Jack was murdered. The two women start on a quest to discover the truth. Obstacles are thrown at them by some powerful men and they want to stop the two women from finding out the truth. A suspenseful story about the searching for the truth. A fast paced story with great characters.
Engaging characters are a strong feature in this book which sees an ordinary person taking on the big guns. The main character’s fate and reactions to loss are extremely credible, and the author has done a great job bringing her to life. The plot was good but not too challenging.
I love it when a book grabs you within the first few pages – and this one did just that. Fast-paced plot with a great story of the ordinary civilian up against high-powered people; very David and Goliath. Who can you trust and how can you stay alive to uncover and expose the truth? And what IS the truth – keeps us guessing a while on what exactly the secret is and then used it in the plot – which I particularly enjoyed. Was also excellent to have two strong female protagonists. Loved the book and look forward to reading her next one.
This was a great book. I loved every paragraph, every sentence and every word of this masterpiece! I read it in 12 hours, which is a lot for me to do! It had everything and more laid out in the novel! I sure hope she writes more! I am totally hooked!
Did I stay up all night trying to finish this book…. maybe…..
This book sent me for a loop a few times, just when you think you might know what is going on, you are sent on a scavenger hunt in the other direction to only be brought back to the other side!
This book reminded me a lot of the show how to get away with murder.
I would highly recommend that anyone who is interested in thriller-mystery books to read this one! The suspense and build is absolutely out of this world!
Thank you NetGalley as well as the author for allowing me to read this gem!
Good book! This book had suspense, intrigue, action, and great detective work! The storyline was interesting and flowed nicely! This book was a decent read, I wouldn’t say it was one of my top favorites but still worth reading! I would recommend reading this book as it was worth reading, but it was just ok for me! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!
Holy cow- what an ending! I fell in love with the characters and I can’t wait for the next book!
This is an excellent novel. The characters in the book are interesting, and I love how events twist and turn. The end of the book has two endings, and one is a surprise. “A Knock At The Door” is a great book for book clubs because the author even put in a section with questions.
Great book! I usually do not read thrillers, but I truly enjoyed reading A Knock on the Door. It’s “addictive”, and, after the first few chapters, I knew I would not read anything else until I finish it. I enjoyed the writing style and cannot believe that this is Roberta’s first book. The characters are real, the plot is intriguing, and I could not predict the end. Looking forward to the sequel and highly recommend it to anyone!
A Knock at the Door exceeded my expectations. I am not an avid reader but once I started this book, I could not put it down. The prologue alone had me hooked. The author's vivid storytelling made this an easy, enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book!
I do not read much fiction; however, from the beginning of “A Knock on the Door,” my focus was captured. The character development, the creative storyline, and a contemporary topic of misguided beliefs, I found to be a very enjoyable read. I look forward to the movie!
Characters hook you right from the beginning and leave you at the end wondering what will happen with a budding relationship. Only one way to find out! Looking forward to the next novel.
This book grabs you and doesn't let go! It is well written and characters are built so you feel you know them! Their determination, against all odds, is refreshing! A must read!!
Lori Crawford will have a difficult time this holiday season after her husband's death in a car accident. They had been married for 25 years so she thought that she knew all there was to know about him.
Life goes on though until Jack's assistant Rita Johnson who works at SpringWare. Rita comes to her and tells her that her husband's death was suspicious and she thinks that he was murdered. SpringWare is a company that creates video games so what secrets could there be.
Somehow the company is involved with the National Security Agency but why? Rita is sure that there is something nefarious going on. So Rita and Lori embark on a search to see what they can find out. They are determined to bring the person they suspect to justice. But there are more deaths that are somehow made to look like suicides. But why? Did these people get too close to the truth? The ending will definitely surprise you!
This book had a lot of scary situations, but a book that is very readable. I enjoyed the story a lot and would highly recommend it. A great mystery!
I give it 4 stars.
This is a must read, on the edge of your seat kind of book! This was brilliantly and creatively written. I can’t wait for the next books!
This is a great read! I enjoy reading murder mysteries and the like. This book drew me in right away and held my attention with interesting characters, surprises and twists. I could not put it down! I highly recommend for the reader in your life.
This was a perfect beach vacation read for me this summer. Lots of action, intriguing plot and interesting characters. And – an amazing 1st book debut by a new fiction/suspense writer. Looking forward to seeing Roberta’s next book.
I loved the read – kept me engaged throughout the story. Eagerly awaiting your next book!
The story begins with Lori losing her husband to a car accident only to be later be shown evidence that it may not have been an accident, but murder instead by a former assistant of her husband.
This books has all the “woman power” as they both try to figure out exactly what happened to Jack.
This book captivates you in the first few pages and keeps a fast pace.
I love that the ordinary women are taking on the big guns and not afraid to do it.
Very suspenseful and action-packed. I absolutely loved it and honestly didn’t think I would, for some odd reason.
Releases on 10/4/2022 so RUN out and get it!
What a fantastic read, thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this book. I could not put it down.
Suspense, intrigue, action, and a great cast of characters. The storyline was interesting and flowed nicely. A bit slow at first, it got progressively faster and more exciting after the first third. It was refreshing to find a novel that relied on good storytelling rather than foul language and sex to keep things interesting. I wouldn’t lump it into the cosy mystery genre as it’s more intense than that. The characters being middle aged and older added extra layers of depth and interest to the storyline. A great start for a new author, I’m interested to see how she and the characters develop in the next book. Thanks, NetGalley, for a free copy in exchange for my honest review. Definitely recommend.
I read this fantastic book in one sitting. Just when you think you have it figured out … you don’t.
If you need a single plot mystery for a rainy afternoon, A Knock on the Door may be your book. It appears to be the first of a series, so we’ll see what Roberta Fernandez does with it next.
It is difficult enough for Lori Crawford to think of the coming holiday season without her dearly loved husband, Jack. They had 25 years of wedded bliss before a car accident stole their future together. Then Rita Johnson, Jack’s former assistant at SpringWare, shared information with Lori that Jack’s death was murder. Together they are determined to get justice. How does a company that creates video games become involved with the National Security Agency? What will be stronger? Truth and justice or power and money?
I answered the knock on the door and was riveted from start to finish by the author’s novel. What a captivating debut! The questions mounted more than the answers, and evidence was scant. As the suspense mounted, I couldn’t predict whether truth would prevail over greed, which made it all the more compelling.
Book clubs will appreciate the questions available at the novel’s end. Don’t miss the special surprise message for book clubs at the end of the questions.
I highly recommend adding this book to your tbr list. I’m excited that the author’s website indicates a sequel is in progress. I’ll answer the next knock too!
My sincere thanks to Roberta K. Fernandez and Subplot Publishing for my complimentary digital copy of this title, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
Well, this was riveting! Truthfully, I couldn’t put it down. I love books with this kind of pace.
I loved A Knock on the Door! It’s an engaging story with compelling female characters – such a fun escape. I can’t wait for the sequel!!
“Great book, and congrats. I’m sure many more will enjoy it also. I loved it…….I stayed up late to finish it!”
“Our book club has been together for 10 years. After staying up late to finish reading your book, I sent them an excerpt. It’ll be our book of the month and we want you to join us so we can ask you questions about it. I loved it!”
