    On the night Rennie Carter and Max Tully drove along the beautiful shores of Lake Macquarie toward a friend’s 50th birthday party, the atmosphere in the car was a little tense. But when a teenage driver cut them off at a roundabout then tailgated them to the bottle shop and restaurant, tensions escalated alarmingly. The road rage incident was so over the top, if it hadn’t been so scary the attitude of the young driver would have been laughable. So when they finally stepped inside and joined [...]

    This is an excellent book. The story is gripping and well written. I loved seeing a really strong female lead character who actually made genuine life saving decisions instead of blundering into silly situations in order to help the author write a story. It was enjoyable too that the book was set locally in an area which I know well! I will certainly read more by this author.

    Blood Secret by Jaye Ford is a little bit like bolting down the Freeway at a 110k an hour only to realise you have been going the wrong way all along! You think you have the story sussed, and can see the destination, but you don’t.Cleverly written, this book lays out the main characters, a couple called Rennie and Max who are in love but both have and hide secrets. Big secrets held by them both and their tightknit group of friends in little Haven Bay on the NSW coast.Rennie is a hard woman, bu [...]

    Carol -Reading Writing and Riesling
    I found this a very engaging and satisfying thriller. I was hooked by the action in the first few pages – Ford creates tension by using a situation many of us are familiar with - road rage; we can place ourselves in this picture, the tension is real. What a great hook! This novel is fast paced, action packed and nothing is as it appears on the surface. The characters are likable, earnest, hardworking and real – this is a community that appears perfect, secure and benign to those looking from [...]

    This was good story about a girl with a secret past life that she thinks has come back to haunt her and her special man. It was not a really riveting book but it was enjoyable enough as Max's friends look for him after he goes missing.

    Thriller, bei denen eine Person spurlos verschwindet, finde ich immer besonders spannend. Das ist auch der Hauptplot dieser Geschichte. Obwohl Rennie und ihr Freund Max eigentlich glücklich sind, ist er auf einmal verschwunden.Der Anfang des Buches hat mich richtig gefesselt, denn schon zu Beginn gibt es eine Begegnung, die den Puls in die Höhe treibt. Leider wird diese Spannung dann aber nicht mehr aufrecht gehalten. Für meinen Geschmack trat die Story dann etwas an der Stelle. Zwar erfährt [...]

    Rennie Carter has been in Haven Bay for five years, possibly the longest she’s ever stayed anywhere in her whole life. Previously it’s always been about running, keeping on the move, laying low. Don’t make friends, don’t settle in, don’t get close to people. You never know when you just might have to pack up and leave.But that changed the day she drove into the small town on the beautiful Lake Macquarie in NSW. She got a job working in a cafe, she begin to make tentative roads towards [...]


    I’ve never been a fan of thrillers. I just don’t have the stomach for blood, gore and gruesome scenes. Don’t let Jaye Ford’s scary titles fool you. Though there is certainly suspense and frightening scenes, Jaye Ford’s books are psychological, character-driven fiction.  Her work might be more akin to the ‘cosy mystery’ genre than to the thriller genre as there is very little that is gruesome in her books, and the scenes unfold organically in a way that is very natural and smooth. [...]

    Jaye Ford has written a very clever and riveting psychological suspense thriller that keeps you enthralled and guessing almost to the very end.Rennie Carter and Max Tully have been living together as partners in a small town on the shores of Lake Macquarie for the last 4 years. When they are dressing to go to a friend's 50th birthday party things get steamy and serious between them.

    Amanda - Mrs B's Book Reviews
    I have discovered that Australian author Jaye Ford has a real knack for writing tense psychological thrillers and Blood Secret is no exception. The reader is kept guessing from the moment they open the book. The book is based around the character Rennie Carter, a woman living in a quiet area called Haven Bay. Very little happens in Haven Bay, but one day Rennie finds her life in disarray as her husband suddenly vanishes without a trace. Rennie is deeply concerned for Max’s whereabouts, believi [...]

    Rennie Carter had spent her whole life running from a violent past when she arrived in the sleepy town of Haven Bay. Initially planning to stay a short while (as always), she was not prepared for the possibility of falling in love with local man Max. Life with him is so good that finally Rennie puts down some roots and allows herself to live a "normal" life for a while.Despite her contentment Rennie is always on her guard and her instincts smell trouble when she and Max are involved in a road ra [...]

    A must read if you love tense, psychological thrillers. Jaye paces the book with a steady build-up of tension, every page bringing you closer to the climax until you can't read fast enough to try and figure out whodunnit.The main character, Rennie, can't forget her dark past, on the run her whole life from the vicious, vindictive father who killed her mother. When her partner Max, goes missing after a road rage incident, she at first suspects the young hoon. But as time goes by, she begins to th [...]

    This is the first time I have spent such a large amount on an e-book and I must say, the author delivered. Blood Secret starts dramatically and the pace keeps up. Well-crafted and written, the author has created a very likable – if flawed, and aren’t we all? – characters, in whom, the reader can easily invest concern.The tension mounts Rennie tries to understand what has happened to cause Max to disappear in the middle of a party. The arrival of his 14 year old son is a surprised complicat [...]

    This is the 3rd book in my Jaye Ford reading binge. I started this book yesterday afternoon and thought I would read for a couple of hours and have an early night as I thought I was tired. Well I finished it at 2am this morning so I guess that means I couldn't put it down. I haven't read very many stand alone books lately as I have a tendency to migrate toward series but these books are terrific. What I really like is the strong female main characters . Yes, they find themselves in horrible situ [...]

    2.5 stars. I really can't say why this book didn't do it for me without large spoilers, so I will attempt to use broad strokes. The main character seemed annoying and wooden, and when the villain of the piece was revealed, using his back story and current events left a bad taste in my mouth. The resolution was far too short, and speaking of short, there were 48 chapters, and most of them were only six pages in length, which made the book seem very broken up.

    Nothing ever happens in Haven Bay. This is why Rennie Carter has stayed longer than she should. But the book opens with Max, her lover disappearing. Could she be the reason Max has gone? Is it foul play or is Max just taking some time out? This book grabs you from the start and never lets go. I love this type of book, especially when the possibilities keep changing. I did not predict the eventual outcome, but have gone looking for the other titles written by this author. Wow!

    I'm pleased to say that Ford's writing and plotting have improved out of sight since her debut, Beyond Fear. Despite the fact that savvy character, Rennie, completely ignored a possible suspect until it was almost too late, this is nevertheless a gripping read. It doesn't have the finesse and twists of Gone Girl, but I believe Ford will get there.

    Argh. I've now run out of Jaye Ford books! Really liked this, like the clever structure, intriguing main character. This is the first of her books which deals with an established couple and I thought it was very well done. Again almost impossible to put down- kept on thinking of when I could sneak away to read a few chapters! Will be eagerly awaiting her next book

    Disappointing. Three is generous, more of a 2.5. Interesting it was but definitely not the nail-biting suspense touted in various reviews. The road rage incident was promising and suspenseful but not the rest, including the climax with the, to me, obvious villain. I would read another by this author though.

    I found the first part of the story a little slow, however it did establish the characters and their backgrounds well.Relatively fast paced from there on, however I felt the perpetrator was somewhat expected and it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat as much as her previous books. A great read though :)

    Simone Sinna
    This is her third book, set north of Sydney she sets up a tense stand off with a road rage guy and then the focus of the rage goes missing. Behind this is his girlfriend's (who we follow) history which unfolds as increasingly unattractive, but also some of the man’s past and where that might fit in. After the early tension it is mostly predictable but a good light read.

    I have read all of Jaye's books now and would have to say I enjoyed this one the most. Twists and turns were great. Won't say too much coz I don't want to give away any secrets!! Get your copy and read it NOW!!!

    Fast paced, this book had me gripped. So many twist and turns, I wasn't sure who was "good" and who was "bad" for much of the story. I love it when plot twists are hard to guess! My third book by this fabulous Aussie author and will be sure to keep my eye out for more!

    Blue Eyed Vixen
    Initial review 3 stars at 200 pages. Storey well plotted, but I suspect I will change again. This is my 3rd read by Ford, a local writer, and she knows how to twist the knife well so I'm expecting a hairpin bend or 2 soon.

    Sallyann Van leeuwen
    Fast paced action which you could see unfolding on a big screen. Felt real, with every day dramas and conflicts suddenly under the microscope. Picked the ending but I think it's because there weren't too many characters to pick from. Enjoyable and will look for more from this author.
