About the Author

head shotThe author of two previous highly-rated thrillers (The Linen God and The Reluctant Disciple), Jim O’Shea spends his time crafting novels of suspense that frequently tackle the dynamic between faith and science. Jim believes God continues to reveal his creation masterpiece through scientific discovery, and that Christian fiction is a great tool to expose those emerging truths.

His third novel, “Blood Sisters”, is also very highly rated on Amazon but takes a more traditional approach to mystery/thrillers with a mind-bending whodunit in the tradition of Agatha Christie. His fourth novel, “The Beacon”, will return to his faith/science roots and feature a compelling blend of espionage, leading-edge science, and salvation.


More from Jim

I’m fascinated by science in general, but more specifically by discoveries over the past hundred years that point directly to a Creator and His creation. The new findings fly in the face of mainstream physics which suggests matter and energy make up everything in our universe and that all things, including our consciousness or soul, are direct results of their interactions.

Fortunately, humankind’s advancements in physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, etc. point directly to the fact that the universe had an actual beginning as claimed in the Bible and our existence can not be explained by natural processes such as evolution. This should be a great comfort to every Christian, and my writing often tries to take these emerging truths and wrap them up into page-turning stories that provide the reader not with just a thrill ride, but also a glimpse into God’s glory!

My Thoughts

 Blood Sisters is a Christian Suspense/Thriller that is written by  Jim O’Shea. This book pulled me in from the beginning and I read it late into the night. I will admit that this had me looking over my shoulder. It is definitely a psychological thriller. I was so pulled into this book that I lost all sense of what was going on around me.  This is my first introduction to this author, and I hope to read more from him. He definitely ha d the hair on the back of my neck standing straight up. 

Libby keeps seeing her sister everywhere. There is a problem, she was killed in an explosion a year ago. The thing is, it is not just Libby seeing her, it is their parents also. Libby begins to think she is on the verge of a mental breakdown. (This book does deal with mental illness, but the author does it in a way that is not shameful). The author introduces so many different aspects of what could have happened - I was shocked by the ending. Is the sister dead? Is the sister the killer? Is Libby the killer? Who is targeting these women? Throw in a Detective that has his hands full with a serial killer that is targeting girls who look like Libby. 

The characters are well written. The story line is super suspenseful. Make sure that you have a lot of time to read this  book. 

I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit Blogging Program, All thoughts are my own.
