Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Set in Stone by David James Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! I have a confession to make. I have had this series on my kindle for awhile. If you’ve read my last couple of posts (Life updates 2. and life updates), you know that I’ve had a lot I’ve been dealing with the past several months. But I finally managed to start reading, and once I did, I couldn’t stop. In fact, I wish I had the next two books because I’m not sure I can wait until release day to read them!!!

Trapped in time, he’ll have to use the past to fix the present.

Thirty-eight women. Dead. All the in the past. All because Detective Rembrandt Stone played with fate, and somewhere in time unleashed a serial killer. He can’t undo their deaths, not anymore, but the serial killer is still at large, twenty-four years later, and now it’s personal. Especially when the evidence points to the last person on anyone’s radar: Rembrandt himself.

Now he’ll have to use the clues from his pasts to track down the killer in the present.

But the killer is onto him and puts the one person Rembrandt loves in his cross hairs. Now, Rembrandt must outwit time to save the people he loves.

Because time is playing for keeps.

The fourth installment of the True Lies of Rembrandt Stone will have you holding your breath and leave you gasping for more.

The continuing adventures of Rembrandt Stone from the creative minds of James L. Rubart, Susan May Warren and newcomer David Curtis Warren, writing as DAVID JAMES WARREN.

Books in the Series:


My Perspective

Oh my word the excitement and suspense continues. This series is unlike anything I have ever read, and each novel just makes it more interesting, more intriguing, and makes me wish it would never end. Even though I must find out how it’s all going to come together. Must isn’t even the right word. I have to find out. Like now.

But seriously, the writing is so full of action, suspense, and plot twists to keep you on your toes. It is non stop and I am a-okay with that. I’m not kidding when I say you won’t be able to put this book down. Heck, if you haven’t read the series you’ll binge it. I did. All four books I read within a few days. And then immediately asked myself why I hadn’t read them sooner.

I can’t imagine having three authors help write a book is an easy task. But somehow these three amazing authors have come together and penned a story in such a fantastic fashion. You have a flawed hero. Yes, he has good intentions, but just doesn’t fully understand the consequences of his actions. But he start to understand as the story progresses. His love for his wife is so sweet, and it really shines in this installment of the series.

And wow that ending. Once again I am left with my jaw hanging down, not knowing what to think, and biting my nails until I can get the next book in my hands. The creativity in the pages of this book is amazing – from the watch, to the descriptive narratives, to the little things that just grab you by the head and don’t let you go. All while giving us a good reminder – we may think we want to change the past, but in reality if we were to do that, we might not be living the same life we are today. Is it worth the risk?

I highly recommend this book. Correction, this series. You do need to read them in order to understand what’s going on. It’s worth it. I promise! Just make sure to carve out a large chunk of time to read it in. You will not want to put it down for a second!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
