I’m  pleased to introduce The Elixir by Lori Soard on my blog, today.  She categorised it as Mystery>Thriller>Suspense>Medical.  So if you like this genre, I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading this fast-paced thriller with a touch of romance!


Book Description

The dark parking garage with the dead body of his friend and mentor only begins Jake Walker’s problems. Soon, he is the prime suspect in Benjamin Monroe’s murder and worried that his best friend, Ben’s daughter, will believe the worst.

Celeste doesn’t know who killed her father but she does know one thing—it wasn’t Jake. As she and Jake set out to find the killer, they discover that her father unlocked the code to a fountain of youth formula. Anyone who wanted the formula could have killed him, and it was worth millions.

During their investigation, they uncover more facts and more bodies. Because they show up at every crime scene, the detectives investigating the case suspect Celeste and Jake of murder. The two go on the run until they can clear their names. But, there are more sinister forces at work than either realizes, and the deception runs as deep as the national government…

The Elixir has many positives. To me it is important to set the plot early in the story and to keep it moving at a steady pace throughout. This was certainly the case, because from the moment Celeste Munroe hears of her father’s death, her world is turned upside down. And having someone like Jake, her father’s assistant near, helping her to catch a killer, turns on the heat, not only because they become chief suspects, but also because there is an undeniable attraction between them. The author successfully keeps this tension balanced with Celeste’s quest to discover the truth about her father’s laboratory work. The plot has many twists and turns, and it’s progression will keep you reading till the last page. I’m sure you’ll enjoy The Elixir as much as I did!
Comment|Thank you for your review.


 Lori Soard has a PhD in Journalism and Creative Writing, but she’s hardly the stuffy professor type. She loves nothing better than a good romantic comedy and thinks the good guy should always win and the ending should always be happy.


From an early age, Lori started honing her story telling skills. As a kid she was rarely seen without a book in her hand, even walking and reading at the same time. Her first stories were about the world around her. At twenty she wrote her first novel, which she admits was horrible. At twenty-one, she sold her first article to a local newspaper. Once she got that taste of having others read her work and realizing that she could reach others and touch their hearts, there was no turning back for this natural born writer.”If I can make someone’s day just a tiny bit better,” Lori says, “if I can make them smile even though they are sad, make them think things could be better, make them understand how much God loves them, then I have accomplished something. I write my stories, articles and books with that one person in mind who really needs the message. If I can change one person’s perspective, then I’ve succeeded.”

Lori is a life-long Hoosier and lives in southern Indiana with her two daughters, husband and beloved pets. “During the extreme low points in life, it has been my animals that have seen me through. There is nothing like the deep devotion of a dog or the unconditional love of a cat.” Lori adores animals and while some of her dear friends have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge she will always stand by her belief that animals make the world a better place.
