After the death of Ottawa’s first serial killer, things in the city are just getting back to normal. The city’s imposed curfew has been lifted, the nervous energy in the air has started to dissipate and demolition has begun on Hayden’s Amusement Park. After suffering at the hand of Stevie Phelps, and putting the pieces of their lives back together, Michael and Nicole Rossi are living the dream. Business at Michael’s Place is booming, their daughter, Maria, is just learning to walk and the newlyweds are more in love than ever. Without warning, the dream is shattered. A brutal murder takes place and everyone deems it the work of a copy-cat killer. Just like Stevie Phelps, known as “The Carousel Killer”, had done with his victims, the killer removed the victim’s eyes. Nicole panics and slowly retreats into herself until Michael starts to believe she is seeking comfort in the arms of another man. Then, one night, he overhears a conversation in his restaurant that makes his blood run cold. Phelps continues to haunt the Rossi family, forcing Michael to make a choice. A choice that will change everything and help them emerge from the nightmare that has become their life. Making the wrong choice, Michael soon realizes, is truly the only way out.

I enjoyed Barbara Avon's suspenseful story, Michael's Choice!. A true Love story of suspense that has all the elements of a great mystery and an even better romantic sideline.Nicole is an haunted woman, haunted by a darkness that comes from her past. Only her husband Michael seems to be able to protect her, but still her life hovers on the brink of danger. But can he face the demons that haunt her? Michael's Choice is captivating, sexy, there is a lot of intrigue for readers and it will keep them looking for answers. A story that kept me reading nonstop and finishing the book in one day. A great piece of entertainment, a real masterpiece!! I most highly recommend this book - giving it 5 stars and looking forward to reading many more books by Avon.

“Michael Choice” was amazing! You continue to keep me on the edge of my seat! I love the direction you brought the characters and how you continued on the path you started with “The Gift”. The ending was unreal! It was just the perfect amount of information, without giving away all the details. You are a wonderful story teller!
