Jim and Amy Spencer are at the end of their rope. After 15 years of marriage, they finally conceive a child. But when that baby dies all hope is lost for the struggling couple. Amy walks around the house like a ghost, dreaming of what could have been and refusing to face reality. Jim is a supportive husband, cooking, cleaning, doing groceries, and whatever else he has to do to keep their family of two together. But nothing he says or does can bring back the child Amy so desperately wanted.
When a house fire results in a mysterious little girl called Louisa being displaced, Jim instantly agrees to take her into their home. He desperately hopes it will help Amy heal from the past and encourage her to look towards the future. But Amy does not trust the nine-year-old girl with haunting blue eyes, and she is uncomfortable with the special gift the girl possesses. But when Louisa comes in contact with the serial killer that's been stalking their small town of Virginia Hills, everything suddenly changes. Is it too late to save the family Louisa has come to love? And what is the fate of her own family that she simply cannot remember?
All I can say is "wow". What a ride this book was. Dellosso puts you right in the middle of the action from the very first page, and doesn't let go till the end. While I kept trying to guess what was going on, the characters were ever-changing and learning and becoming different people. The pieces of the puzzle fell into place with such a convincing plot you can almost be persuaded it is real. A fantastic setting with characters as large as life, Fearless is not to be missed.

When I picked up this book I new the premise of it from the back cover, it was awesome. What a page turner it became, and loved the short chapters. You never saw what was going to happen next. Once you open the cover your hooked. Be ready for a great, suspenseful journey. We open the story with Jake trying to wake up, he can't breath...there is a fire. All of a sudden there is a little 9 year old girl there, telling him that all is ok. She even has his cat in her arms, he had been trying to find. Where had she come from?? A rather odd situation, a child out of no where. The Police Chief Doug Miller, wants what is best for the Child, and until we find out who she is. He has Jim and Amy Spencer take her. Now Jim takes to the child immediately, but Amy is still struggling with her grief of loosing her daughter, before she was born. What will it take for Amy to come around? Are they in danger from the events that circle this child? How about with the serial murders that are all of a sudden happening. You are going to be so surprised by the ending...it is a page turner. I loved it, and highly recommend you read it!
I received this book through First Wild Card Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
Do you like suspense? If so, this is the book for you.
Jake wakes up to his house on fire. He's being overcome with smoke. He knows he won't make it out. But then he feels a presence - a young girl. She encourages him. He can't die yet. His son needs him. He and the girl make it out a live.
Her name is Louisa. She doesn't remember anything else - how she got in the burning house or even anything about her family or where she is from. The sheriff asks the Spencers to take her in for a while. Amy Spencer is still dealing with the miscarriage she had a couple of months ago. Louisa frightens her. She sees things like the hurt people carry inside. And she believes. When she prays God moves.
There is an evil that has invaded the community. A serial murderer is at work. All too soon he sets his sights on the Spencers and Louisa.
This is an exciting novel of suspense. The supernatural invades the community, the good from Louisa and the evil from the murderer. This is not a cozy murder mystery. Throats are slashed and the last fifty pages or so are nail bitingly intense.
Besides the great suspense, there is also the issue of continuing to trust God when circumstances do not go the way we'd want or when we are terribly hurt.
This novel kept me reading from beginning to end. For suspense that involves the spiritual realm, this one is a winner.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
She just appeared out of nowhere. First the fire was about to take Jake's life, the next she was kneeling down with him telling him things she couldn't possibly know. And where did she come from? Fire was all around them, but they were able to make it out alive. This young girl, Louisa, who appeared out of nowhere is headed temporarily to live with Jim and Amy Spencer. Jim and Amy have helped out in the past with temporary shelter, but this time it's a little different. Amy has just recently had a miscarriage and is finding it difficult to get past the hurt and move on. Upon meeting Louisa, she again tells Amy things that she shouldn't know and these things put Amy ill at east around her. One day on the playground, Louisa "prays" for a young girl with Multiple Sclerosis and the young girl is healed. Another time she "prays" for a young boys tumors and they disappear. As word get around about the "miracle worker", Jim and Amy close ranks around her to protect her. In the meantime, there's a killer on the loose. Bodies are turning up each day and the Police Chief is no closer to solving that case, then he is to finding out where Louisa came from. Does Louisa hold some kind of healing power? Can Amy let go of the hurt caused by her miscarriage? Will the killer be found before the next body is discovered? Who is this little girl and what is her story? If you think I'm going to give it away, FORGET IT! GO BUY THE BOOK!
I have read pretty much every book by Mr. Dellosso and I could venture to state a very obvious comment. He keeps getting better with each book that he writes. I truly enjoy reading an author over a span of several books to see their writing style evolve and improve. There's nothing worse to me than an author who found the "secret" novel once and keeps churning that same storyline out for 15 books thinking they still have it. I can tell you, if you read one of Mr. Dellosso's books, you will need to read them all because they are all so different. The twists and turns that he provided in this book kept me guessing as to how it would end and how everything would be connected. Just like a well-oiled machine, Mr. Dellosso has this book finely tuned and ready for anybody to pick up and enjoy.
Is this a guy's book? This is a quintessential guy's book. Mystery, adventure, murder you name it. If these are the elements of a great novel that you love to crack open, then this new novel by Mr. Dellosso is for you!
I am a big fan of Mike Dellosso and he certainly doesn't disappoint with his new thriller, Fearless. I was hooked on page 1. The suspense and mystery were great. I loved the characters and felt a part of the book, something that is important to me when I read. I will not go into details of the storyline as other reviews have covered that. I love how Mike Dellosso tells a story. Few authors can take you from evil at its worst and to love at its best like he can.
In his sixth book of the genre, Mike Dellosso delivers another suspenseful story that will haunt you until the end. With a brief tug at your imagination, Dellosso pulls you into a story that will leave you wondering—was that really just a story?
There is something about this nine-year-old girl named Louisa. She most probably saved Jake Tucker’s life, but she just appeared out of nowhere. She couldn’t remember her last name or her parents or nothing of any value that would have helped anyone find out who she was, but she was in Virginia Mills for a reason.
Some say she has a gift—to heal, to know, to say the right things. Others call her an angel sent from God to save them. Nevertheless, Louisa becomes the town hero. Jim and Amy Spencer have just suffered the loss of their unborn child. Amy is still locked in depression. Jim is struggling to move on while at the same time trying to comfort his wife.
When Louisa comes into their lives, Jim is accepting while Amy is reluctant, hesitant, scared. When a serial killer comes to town and they suddenly become targets, Jim and Amy fight to keep Louisa safe, but does Louisa know something they don’t?
