Review of Wicked Ways


Wicked Ways by Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush is the sixth book in The Colony series.  It is a mystery/suspense with a paranormal twist.

Elizabeth is an ordinary wife and mother who has the ability to kill people by wishing them dead!  This does not seem ordinary to me in any way.  But she thinks bad things about her boss, an evil cop and her cheating husband and they have all died.  Is she responsible in someway or is it just a coincidence or or is someone setting her up?

This book has many characters and at times it got confusing to me trying to keep track of them all.  Maybe if I had read this series from the beginning then I would have known who they were already.  It also seemed to me as though the book is very long.  I feel that too much time was spent with conversations between Elizabeth and her friends and then the inner thoughts of Elizabeth about her friends.  It got to be a little too much for me.  These are a couple of the things that bothered me about the book.

There are a couple of things that I really enjoyed about the book.One of those things is the plot line.  I love the idea of someone being able to cause bodily harm to others just by thinking bad thoughts (hope that does not make me sound like a bad person).  I just find the idea fascinating and I did enjoy the plot.  Another thing I like about the book is the paranormal aspects.  Paranormal is one of my favorite genre to read and this one grabbed my attention throughout the entire book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a suspenseful paranormal mystery.  I would recommend reading the books in the series in order, I think it would make it easier to know the characters better.  I have read other Lisa Jackson and I think she is a great author.  Nancy Bush is another great author to read and together they have written this series.  Check this one out for yourself, I think you will enjoy it.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.

  1. Oh lord if I could do bodily harm by thinking bad thoughts the world would be in trouble. I am a calm person, never quick to anger etc..but there is always a running commentary in my head in which I am backing my truck over folks, hitting them with the frying pan I am holding..etc. LOL
