One thought on “Snake Skin

  1. The Pirate Ghost (Formerly known as the Curmudgeon)

    4 stars Dark subject matter, though it s handled well Strong likable characters Likable as characters I mean, not all of of them were likable A quick paced story that includes the best parts of suspense, thrillers and action crime novels Lucy is wonderful A strong female character who, for a wonderful change, is not looking for love, battling divorce, though she has the normal frustration and fears as anyone about their relationships when things get tough, and, a mother She comes across as a str [...]

    As someone with severe ophiophobia, I was hesitant to even begin reading C.J Lyons FBI thriller,Snake Skin My fears were realized Over and over and over Too Many Snakes.Despite my feeling that the author went way overboard with the reptile scenes, which went on for many paragraphs, and I skipped over all of them the rest of the book is actually very good Readers can view the blurb for themselves to get the gist of the plot, so I won t give anything away here There is plenty of danger involved wh [...]

    A Review of C J Lyons Snake Skin A Lucy Guardino FBI Thrillers, Book 1 by Anthony T RiggioI just finished reading this book and let me begin with an uncharacteristic expression in my reviews of books I have read recently, to wit, Wow This book was so fast paced and the story line wrapped me up into a tight package My wife asked me what can keep you so occupied that everything I was supposed to do was left neglected and undone I told her I discovered an author as capable as James Patterson, when [...]

  5. Daleen Berry

    I was on the last leg of a 600 mile car trip with a lot of books on my iPad when I began reading Snakeskin in early November Initially, I wasn t sure I would like it and to be perfectly candid, I wouldn t have purchased it based on the title alone because Snakeskin didn t tell me anything about the book Plus, I don t read thrillers, because they normally contain too much blood and gore, profanity and or sex for me All of the above, though, say about me than they do about the book itself or even [...]

  6. Jo Ann Reinhold

    Wow, what can I say As soon as I finished I had to grab the next book and start reading C.J Lyons is such a wonderful story teller and creates characters that are compelling The story was fast paced dealing with subject matter that is so intense but again C.J handles it so well Each character fleshed out to feel so real with both good an bad qualities, strengths and weaknesses, characteristics that make them so human In this first book we meet Lucy, mother, wife and FBI Special Supervisory Agent [...]

  7. Kristy

    This was an okay crime drama novel fantastic though I enjoyed the beginning, but as it progressed I really just found myself wishing it would hurry and end I liked the first half of the book better interesting, well written, suspensefulbut the second half just seemed soap opera ish, overdramatic, and unrealistic I mean really, a horde of snakes twice in one day And a narcissist psychopath who is willing to bomb the hospital which doesn t even make sense, because narcissists are selfish egotists [...]

  8. J.F. Penn

    Full video review here mysterythriller snakeskin b CJ Lyons writes thrillers with heart and loves to involve the reader in the life of the protagonist, how the job affects them and how their family life is affected In Snakeskin, we see Lucy Guardino who is a FBI agent working against child crime and child abuse.I spoke to CJ Lyons and she did spend time with the FBI for her research This is a very hard area to work in CJ also works in pediatrics so the topic is close to her heart As the book ope [...]

  9. Pat aka Tygyr

    This book was the 1st book in a bundle entitled Adrenaline Rush 7 High Octane Thrillers.Ashley is a teen, unloved daughter of divorced parents, smart, makes a friend on line named Bobby They agree to meet and run away together Only it isn t Bobby that meets her, drugs her, ties her up in a dark, smelly barn, where he can watch her from the safety of cyber space as he works at breaking her.Lucy works for the FBI and is offered a job advancement requiring her family to move Her husband Nick is a p [...]

  10. Vicky

    Wow That one word pretty much says it all With the opening page, C.J grabbed me by the throat and didn t let go until the last page Snake Skin is definitely one of the best suspense novels I ve read.Lucy Guardino is a typical soccer mom, except that, as an F.B.I agent, she carries a gun and hunts down vicious perverts who go after children In this book, she s up against one of the worst she s ever faced Faced with the threat to her own daughter, Lucy does what is necessary, even if it means she [...]

  11. Diane

    Another new to me author Took no time at all to adjust to this author s writing A great read right from the start, lots of action, good detective work and a very irritating reporter makes this book worth reading.A couple of different cases take place all while the main case takes shape Special Supervisory FBI Agent, Lucy Guardino, is a no nonsense agent with a big heart and very likeable The title is aptly named lots of encounters with snakes in this book I really enjoyed this book and highly re [...]

  12. Samantha Curtis

    This year has been so slow for me with reading Life just seems to get busy I have defo found myself a new author and will be reading the rest of this series I really love FBI agent Lucy From the first chapter it had me gripped I highly recommend this book specially if your a fan of Angela marsons

  13. Elvan

    Loved it, creepy snakes and all I like Guardino s humanity She is not some cardboard FBI cutout She s not perfect but she is determined to help the helpless, often at the expense of time spent with her family The case while interesting is secondary to the detailed portrayals of Guardino, her family and her coworkers Looking forward to reading books by this author.

  14. Lisa

    Wow Wow Wow what a read i absolutely loved this book CJ Lyons well done Lucy Guardino is one strong character full of oomph wont back down all the characters were strong set up the story well Even bought no 2 straight away so would recommend this for anyone who likes a fast paced story.

    Review originally posted at Tea, Toast Books.In Brief Ashley is a disturbed teenager, trying to escape her current life but she ends up being abducted Can Lucy Guardino, FBI agent and loving wife and mother, solve the crime in time to save Ashley I thought Within the first 20 pages, I found this book a bit disturbing NB I don t usually read thriller type mysteries It s violent, and features kidnapping, vulnerable and abused children, corrupt cops, sexual objectification, and plenty of swearing I [...]

  17. Adrienne Campbell

    I just finished the first book in the Lucy Guardino FBI Thriller Series by C.J.Lyons Breathless It was amazing read and a huge improvement over some of the not so great books I ve been reading lately Lucy Guardino is a wife, mother, and FBI agent who just happens to have broken the glass ceiling without giving up her morals to do it I love her character She struggles with all of the same worries and concerns most working mothers deal with Her job just happens to involve carrying a gun and tracki [...]

  18. Carl

    I was underwhelmed with the characters in this book, particularly the lead hero Reading her heroic feats over two days was a lot like watching the endless sequels of Friday the 13th as each closing scene seeing Jason being killed only to return in the next episode The plot was okay, but it was all over the map In 2 days, she solved a case of religious nuts, a case of Canadian perverts, and a kidnapping case The first 2 cases weren t essential to the story and were of an aside to the abduction o [...]

  19. Marjorie

    Lucy Guardino is a supervisor for the FBI in the SAFE unit She loves her husband and daughter but loves her job In 2 days it seems like, she stops a church from buying a child after they throw her into a snake pit Then another girl goes missing Her daughter becomes ill and ends up in the hospital After escaping a house being blown up and having metal penetrate her back, she still manages to go back to work Then the person who took the girl holds her at gun point, twice, before she manages to ki [...]

  20. Peggy Walker

    This was a new free book It is written by a pediatric ER physician, but she has chosen an FBI investigator working with child predators as her protagonist She does manage to have several scenes take place in a hospital, but curiously those are not that well fleshed out There are two many twists and turns in the plot just becomes exhausted The investigator breaks too many rules pointlessly and appears to have 15 lives Not recommended.

  21. Cindy

    This book grabbed me from the very beginning Although I had read all of the Angels of Mercy series by the author, this was the first one of the Lucy Guardino books Now I cannot wait to read Lucy and her family are very likable characters.Snake Skin was filled with suspense and I found it to be a fast paced thriller that was hard to put down C.J Lyons has managed to get me hooked on another of her series

  22. Martin Pingree

    This as a load of fun to read One of those I couldn t put down Great characters with lots of action and a great story line Female FBI agent and her team take on a missing girl case which turns into a massive interdepartmental nightmare.

  23. Carolyn Injoy

    I received a free kindle copy of Snake Skin by C.J Lyons in an promotion in exchange for a fair review.This started off with a sharp hook I gave it five stars It is an intense, suspense filled thriller that kept me turning pages.Ashley describes her reasons for cutting her trophies, won with success She carefully rolled her sleeve back, exposing the other trophies her control had won Each scar a triumph Each scar a time she hadn t run screaming out into the night or throw herself in front of a b [...]

  24. Jon Borah

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great FBI Story Very well researched with most details spot on It is a compelling story The characters were real, to the point of reminding me of an agent, who, was every bit as dedicated, smart, and fearless as Lucy Guardino I highly recommend it Mark B Lewis, Former FBI Special Agent Just your average Pittsburgh soccer mom, baking brownies and carrying a loaded forty caliber Glock Lucille Teresa Guardino A woman of many identities Lucille to her doting mother, Lulu to her de [...]

  26. Nancy Freund

    I met CJ Lyons a year ago and knew I wanted to discover her fiction She has such loyal reader fans, I expected to enjoy her writing, even if thriller isn t normally my first choice genre I normally go for slower action and subtleties of relationship and family dynamics I normally read literary But my friend Meg Gardiner writers thrillers that include all my favorite things along with a female protagonist and fast action thrill on every page, so I ve been intrigued by this genre for a while And H [...]

  27. Cheri

    Happy to be done with this book There was a lot of potential for an interesting and thrilling read Unfortunately, that s all it had potential I didn t find a single character or scenario in the book remotely genuine The writing didn t flow well at all and the author s use of strange or nonsensical metaphors and similes was distracting Instead of having a book with a kick ass female protagonist I wanted to see succeed, I read about an FBI agent who didn t seem to be able to figure out basic thing [...]

    When I started reading this book, I wasn t sure I would like it I didn t feel that immediate connection with the characters that tells me I m going to like a book.But the I read, the the main character, Lucy Guardino, and story grew on me until I found myself reading faster and faster to find out what happens next That s the sign of a good story.Lyons did a very good job of balancing Lucy s home life with her responsibilities as an FBI agent, and the tug Lucy felt when both demanded her attent [...]
