Product Description

Product Description

Cheryl Bradshaw's library of the Sloane Monroe Series, Books 1-3 (three complete novels):


Enter the world of Sloane Monroe in Black Diamond Death...

On the slopes of Park City, Utah's newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. But what if she was murdered? Although skeptical, PI Sloane Monroe takes the case and learns not everyone is who they seem, and some will go to any lengths to protect their identity.


PI Sloane Monroe has solved every case that's come across her desk with the exception of one--the brutal murder of her sister Gabrielle. Three years have passed without a trace of the serial killer until today, when a young woman's body is discovered on a patch of dirt in front of the local supermarket. Will Sloane exact her revenge before Sinnerman slays his next victim, or will she be too late?


It's been twenty years since PI Sloane Monroe has returned to her hometown of Tehachapi, California, but when a former classmate is stabbed and tossed overboard during the high school reunion cruise, Sloane isn't about to allow a murderer to run free in her own backyard. But in a town where everyone is harboring secrets, how many more men will die before she discovers the truth?

Born and raised in Southern California, Cheryl Bradshaw became interested in writing at a young age, but it was almost two decades before she put pen to paper. In 2009 Bradshaw wrote Black Diamond Death (Book One: Sloane Monroe series). Within six weeks it entered the top 100 in two different categories and remained in the top 100 for over a year. Since that time, Bradshaw has written three additional novels in the series, and is now hard at work on the fourth. In 2013, Bradshaw introduced a new paranormal thriller series: Addison Lockhart, the first book titled Grayson Manor Haunting.

4.0 out of 5 stars lots of twits and turns 15 Jun 2012
By Alice
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all three of these books, I read them back to back and thought that each story was able to stand well as an individual book but they also worked as a series. The more I read about Sloane Monroe the more I felt I learned about her; you learn certain things in each book that aren't in the others so the more you read the fuller her character becomes. Sloane was a well written and well developed character who I liked and cared what happened to. Its a good set of books within the detective/murder genre and kept me entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant had me guessing until the end!! 7 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have thoroughly enjoyed the way I was drawn into the characters. Sloane Monroe has a talent for solving murders but at times she puts herself in a bit too much danger. I like the way Giovanni comes into her life & her relationship with Maddie and her Westie dog Boo.I don't usually read murder mysteries but loved the way these were written & will be looking for more books from Cheryl Bradshaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sloan 30 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I have read any of Sloan's books. They were a great read, they kept me interested all the way through and when I had come to the end of the first one I could not wait for the next. Definately on my favorite author list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sloane Monroe - PI would be Detective! 27 Jun 2012
By Jacci
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This trilogy was a deviation from the normal books I read which are primarily forensic in nature as in Patricia Cornwell or Kathy Reichs, but I saw these and thought I would have a change and I wasn't disappointed.

I got into Sloane's character right from the beginning and the way the books are written you become her, her thoughts are yours and you see her world through your eyes. I enjoyed her friendship with Madison, her love of her companion Westie Boo, and the different but continuity of the story lines through all three books.

I have also enjoyed the beginning of the relationship with Giovanni and all the complications that come with it. I like her personality - she is feisty but true and loyal to those she loves, courageous to the point of not realising the danger she puts herself in in each storyline. The only complaint I have is that I couldn't stop reading them and I NEED the next installment.

Anyone who likes detective books will enjoy these, they are not on the scale of Lee Childs' detective, but just as enjoyable as it is different to read about a female private investigator who likes to detect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read but a bit short 5 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a promising start to a series with a well-drawn plot and convincing characters. It's quite reminiscent of the Sue Grafton series. The main problem is that each book is really only a long short story. Each story could easily be stretched into a full length novel and it's a shame the author didn't do this. However, you can feel confidence growing with each book so I'm sure book 4 and onwards will be great. I'm looking forward to them!

5.0 out of 5 stars A damned good read 21 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I managed to get this box set when it was going free last year. I didn't expect to get much for nothing! However, having now read all three books, I was wrong. They are a really good read. The character of Sloane Monroe develops well through the books and you learn more and more about her as each plot develops. Each plot is different, although books 2 and 3 are more interesting as they present you with villains transformed by society's ills - you understand why they became maladjusted and almost feel sorry for them. My only concern was the poor editing. On every page the space bar seems to have been forgotten as words sticktogether and full stops are left out However, a small gripe since it doesn't spoil the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic and Unlikeable 10 May 2013
By Buster
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's difficult to know quite where to start as there were a number of things I hated about these books. The first was very nearly a did not finish, but I persevered.
Overall I got the feeling that the author was trying to aim for a "hard boiled" meets romantic suspense. Unfortunately it just does not work. Procedurally the books lack much contact with reality; the "heroine" steals evidence, obfuscates the investigation and generally behaves like a prima donna. Unbelievably she seems to be surrounded by people who enable this behaviour.
Characterisation was probably the main reason I disliked the books. Reading the first book, I got the impression of a petulant, emotionally retarded 20-year-old, not something that enables me to have much, if any, empathy for a character. By the 3rd book I realise this woman must be in her mid- to late thirties! Then we have the overbearing, bully of a MCP or the urbane, mafia-type as male leads. This is a woman with apparently astoundingly poor taste in men, but on the other hand I found the romantic elements unbelievable because I couldn't see how any man could stand to be around her for more than 5 minutes.
There are a number of glaring examples of poor proofing throughout the books.
If you can ignore these types of things, then the core of the stories themselves are not too bad

4.0 out of 5 stars I was gripped from the start 6 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed reading the Sloane Monroe series and have now ready 4 of her books one after the other and did not get bored as I usually do when reading books of the same genre one after the other.
I highly recommend for those that enjoy a good crime thriller.
