Joe 2, White Sheets by H.D. Gordon: Spotlight + Review

Joe Knowe sees things before they happen. Bad things. Just a couple months ago it was a psychopath planning a mass shooting at the college she attended. Now, she's facing a whole different kind of madman, and one potentially far more dangerous.

To keep the pending disaster from happening, this time Joe will have to get up close and personal, making herself at home in the lion's den, and attempting not to be swallowed whole.
Will she be able to keep herself and those around her from drinking the Kool-Aid? Or will they all end up under white sheets? In this second installment of the thrilling JOE series, H.D. Gordon takes you into the heart of a cult, the mind of its leader, and the lives of his followers.

Expected publication: March 26th 2014

JoeJoe by H.D. Gordon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Joe is a college student with an unusual gift. She realizes she can't save the world, even with some foresight and knowing what is coming, but she knows she has to try. As the main character, Joe is not what you might expect. She has this strange gift, but she is not a superhero, and she is not out to make a name for herself.

The storyline was well written, and there was a great buildup of tension throughout the story. As the drama unfolded and little pieces of the story fell into place, I was left trying to read faster to find out what was going to happen! The author did an excellent job fleshing out each of her characters. The story is told from multiple viewpoints, and each of those characters was made into a unique individual. Each person shared their part of the story and helped to make it complete. The book itself is well written, and the writing is natural and flowing.

Joe is an engaging story, and I hated to see it come to an end…but what an end it was! But, of course, already having read H.D. Gordon's Alexa Montgomery series, I expected nothing less.
