I marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym and did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall. Then I wrote a book on a crazy dare and found my passion.Now, I am a USA Today best selling author with more than 25 books to my name

I love thrillers, women in jeopardy, the law, cops and the human condition. HOSTILE WITNESS is the first in a series, featuring my beach-rat, volleyball playing attorney Josie Bates and her teenage ward, Hannah, have really captured readers' imaginations. But I also like to stretch the thirller genre a bit. BEFORE HER EYES, for instance, has a fantasy overlay on a murder mystery that I really found intriguing. KEEPING COUNSEL features the sexiest of villains

I teach at UCLA Writers Program and work with The Young Writers Conference, a program that helps motivate middle school children to explore the power of words. I think I am particularly drawn to kids and writing because both my sons have always had a passion for it. Eric is a playwright and Alex is in film. I am married to a superior court judge who is an endless source of inspiration.

When I'm not writing I'm traveling, on a tennis court, working a sewing machine, or reading. Thank you so much for taking a look at my author page. You can find out more about me - and leave me a note - at http://www.rebeccaforster.com

A mystery within a mystery 24 mars 2013
Par lovestodive - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Our story begins in 1966 war torn Albania, where young goat herder turned soldier, Yilli, sits alone watching for anyone who might be trying to escape the country. He hears a noise, calls out, sees two men, and in fear for his life, shoots and kills one of them. He realizes he knows these men, they are from his village. As the second, younger man escapes, all he hears is the man crying "Blood for Blood".

Fast forward to 2013 on Hermosa Beach where Jose and Hannah live. It's the middle of the night and while the two women sleep a storm is raging outside. Frantic pounding on their door wakes Hannah who in turn wakes Josie. A man tells them that Hannah's young friend Billy is in trouble on the beach. Josie races out telling Hannah to stay and call 911 and Josie's finance Archer and to tell him to meet her on the beach. After Billy is rescued a furious Josie and Archer go to his mother's house to give her the news, only to find two dead men and a critically injured woman.

Who did this, why was Billy alone on the beach, who are the men and the woman looks too young to be Billy's mother, who could she be? In order to keep Billy out of the hands of the law, Josie must not only take on Billy as a client but she and Archer will find themselves involved in bizarre mystery that reaches beyond the beach of California all the way to the far reaches of Albania.

I'm a huge fan of Ms. Forster's Josie Bates series; she gives us a strong woman in Josie who never hesitates to take on whoever it takes, in order to protect the innocent. The pictures Ms. Forster paints with her words are so vivid we feel the sting of the salt water as Josie battles the waves to reach young Billy. We feel the love between Josie and Archer, two strong people who together can face anything. We ache for beautiful, yet flawed Hannah, a young woman on the cusp of breaking through her own tormented past but still vulnerable and very much in need of Josie's strength.

In Eyewitness Ms. Forster takes the risk of giving the reader two stories within a story, moving us not only between time but different countries and characters as well; a very daring move that could have turned disastrous, but she pulls it off and I had no problems keeping up.

The reader is given little clues along the way to help solve the mystery, if they can figure them out. Normally, I've figured out the who-done-it long before the end. Ms. Forster never makes it easy, and I didn't know the outcome until I read it.

Each book in this series gives us a little more background on the principle characters until by now, we know them well but I doubt we will ever totally figure them out. All three of the main characters, Josie, Archer and Hannah are so well written that I would be hard put to pick a favorite.

While this is the fifth book in a series, it is not necessary to read the previous books to figure out what is going on, it can stand completely on its own. I'll warn the reader though, if you read this book without having read the previous one's you will become addicted and find yourself running to purchase the previous ones.

So for the mystery/thriller lover, look no further, you've found nirvana. Ms. Forster has covered all the bases with this book, history buffs, people who enjoy learning of different cultures, mystery lovers alike will all enjoy this book. She even gives us a little tickle of a cliffhanger, not to worry it doesn't affect the storyline just gives us something to look forward to, I know I am.

Rebecca Forster not only draws you in with the suspense of this book but also the characters who become so real. I didn't want the book to end.

I've read three of the four prior books in this series and although having done so isn't a prerequisite to understand or enjoy this book, when I evaluate why I liked it, one of the biggest reasons are the characters, specifically Josie Bates and her foster child, Hannah. Eyewitness can be read as a standalone and Forster introduces the bare bones of their back story, but I couldn't help wondering if doing so wouldn't be missing out on some of what I saw and felt, having made the previous investment and having the deeper understanding of the characters that I had coming in. Josie is an attorney and the books in the series are legal thrillers, yet they have more heart than the typical book in this genre, largely because the legal conflict is usually much more personal for Josie.

In this installment, that personal stake is because her client is Billy Zuni, a friend of Hannah's who has been a secondary, but far from trivial character in previous books. As Josie digs, she discovers that much of what she thought she knew about Billy wasn't quite reality. This is also unlike a typical legal thriller because of the way it weaves elements of a foreign culture and how that can influence the life of US immigrants into the story. I highly recommend this book for fans of legal thrillers. Even more, I'd recommend backtracking to the first of the series and reading them all.

Eyewitness - MUST READ! 13 mars 2013
Par Snow Angel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Another great read by Rebecca Forster! I couldn't put it down.

The "main" story starts in the middle of the night during a raging storm. Josie is beckoned out of her slumber only to start a nightmare of a case that has a twisted connection to Albania, and a young man known to Hermosa Beach as Billy. 2 men are dead and a woman known as Billy's mother hangs on for dear life. Will they find the killer? All fingers are pointing at her "son"? Will someone else die? Will Josie and Archer get married? I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how this murder mystery all tied back to the first chapter where Yilli was introduced in Albania, and was left knowing there will be another Witness book to read (Hopefully soon)!! Thanks Rebecca! Another nail biter!

**This is a book that builds a back story from the past during the story. Do not let that detour you from reading this twisty mystery.

Another excellent novel from Rebecca Forster!!! 24 avril 2013
Par Island Gal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Just finished Eyewitness (The Witness Series, #5) and loved it. Fast paced with a terrific story line. If you have not read any of Rebecca Forster's Josie Bates novels you are missing out on some great reads!

This story has Josie involved with a multiple-murder mystery that involves a young man with whom she has watched out for over the past few years. His home life has always been suspect so Josie has somewhat taken him under her wing.

When she finds him almost dead on the beach a dramatic story starts to unfold. Josie and Archer are drawn in to a situation in which they are not familiar, and the players are mostly from Albania...a country they knew little about before the day they found Billy on the beach.

The story continues to tighten around Josie, and her team, until they are questioning all aspects of what they believe to have happened, and why. What they think are facts keep shifting, and the family ties from Albania continue to widen.

Do not miss this fabulous book from Rebecca Forster. The fifth in a great series.
