    3. I must admit that from the blurb on the back of the book, THE BLUE JOURNAL had me expecting a murder mystery with characters and themes along the lines of Robert B. Parker. Granted, his protagonist Police Lieutenant Anthony Walker is the classically damaged cop whose accepts employment in a small New England town for the sake of his family only to have his now ex-wife and kids leave for a more luxurious and financially sound life courtesy of his ex’s new, uber rich hubby while Walker is left w [...]

This certainly proves to be true in the death of Elizabeth Knoebel, when Walker discovers that s [...]

    5. THE BLUE JOURNAL is the first in a new series by the author of the Jordan Sander series. Jeffrey Stephens is writing this new series, starring Lieutenant Anthony Walker, under the pseudonym L.

    6. This book has it all! Murder, sex, power, romance, intrigue! An affluent wife named Elizabeth Knoebel in CT is found shot in the head in her bed naked. There is no evidence of robbery or sexual assault. The wife is part of a therapy group for unhappy wives. Most of these women's husbands are in a similar group with the same female therapist, Randi Conway. When it is learned that Elizabeth was writing a book chronicalling her sexual exploits with various men and women suddenly everyone in these t [...]

    7. Wow what a great mystery/thriller. I can honestly say that this is one book that I did not figure out who the killer was before the author did the big reveal. My opinion on who it was jumped back and forth throughout the whole book and boy was I way off. I found myself laughing at the group sessions as they were very easy to imagine. This is a great book and I now wish that I owned every book from this author. L. T. Graham was able to bring the characters to life so that they could be any person [...]

    8. Detective Anthony Walker has a murder to investigate. Local socialite Elizabeth Knoebel was murdered in bed, with no witnesses, but a found journal gives plenty of suspects. With the help of Dr. Conway, Elizabeth’s group therapist, Walker tries to assess and rule out the suspects. This puts Dr. Conway having to choose keeping ethics or giving Walker important information to help the case along.I liked Walker from the start. He’s brash, says what he means, and takes nothing off of anyone. Thi [...]

    9. I loved a good mystery that keeps me guessing. This one kept me guessing to the very end. Elizabeth wasn't a very nice person and the more that is revealed, the more suspects there are. And the more that the reader hates her. She's one of those murder victims that you can't help but have some sympathy for the killer. I thought characters, too. Hope to read more Detective Anthony Walker novels and I hope to see more of Randi Conway as well.

    10. This book promised to be a good suspense. I found it very slow and repetitive. The book jumped between way too many characters and quite frankly I found it a bit boring.

    11. This was a very good book. It was clear, well thought out. I liked and felt for the characters. The steamy sex diary was a bit much, though.

    12. The Blue Journal drew me in from the beginning, and held my interest all the way to the end. This book is full of mystery and strong character building and will keep you guessing for the whole book, who killed Elizabeth, who killed Fred? You won't know till you read it. This book is about the murder of Mrs. Elizabeth Knoebel, A very outgoing egotistical woman, who believed she was top of the line better than everyone. This is where detective Anthony Walker and Dr. Randi Conway come in. Both of t [...]

    13. Elizabeth Knoebel is killed. Leaving behind a diary with the title 'Sexual Rites' describing her various sexual encounters with both man and woman. The entries show she was a predator and did not mind humiliating her partners. Police officer Anthony Walker is confronted with a lot of possible suspects. Hoping to find out more about Elizabeth he contacts her psychotherapist Randi Conway.Yes there is a lot of explicit language in this book. Starting first with a diary entry and a description of th [...]

    14. This was a win. It's a woman who keeps a journal of her sexual explorations. It starts off with an excerpt and I was worrying that it was going to be too detailed for me. That thought quickly left my mind as I got involved with the story's characters, twists and the turns. I was so curious about the author and did a Google check to learn more. The book was written by a New England-based suspense writer using a pen name. The person responsible certainly knows how to weave a story and kept me glu [...]

    15. THE BLUE JOURNAL is a great beach read for your winter vacation or to accompany you on a cold winter Sunday next to a fire - you will not want to put it down. LT Graham depicts a suburban town gone wrong in a suspenseful and steamy way this is what 'Fifty Shades' should have been! Anxiously awaiting for the next Anthony Walker book!

    16. The Blue Journal is a compelling and sexy story, full of interesting personalities. Like any good mystery, it had me hooked right from the start, and kept me wanting more as I tried to put the pieces of the puzzle together. But it also had a depth other stories of this type do not have as it explored relationships and sexuality. Looking forward to Graham's next novel.

    17. Scintillating page turner; one mystery begets the next, keeping the reader in suspense and hungry for answers.They arrive,at times in shocking fashion. Smart, taut and compellingly written.

    19. This review originally appeared on my blog at gimmethatbook.Thanks to the author for gifting me this book in exchange for an honest review.This is the first book in a new series by LT Graham (pen name of an undisclosed successful suspense writer). The subtitle is “A Detective Anthony Walker novel”, hinting that he will continue to be the main character around which the stories will be structured.

    20. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The Blue Journal by L.T. Graham is a sexually-charged murder mystery. It is part police-procedural mystery and part erotic diary. L.T. Graham is the pen name of an established suspense writer.The Blue Journal is told primarily from the point of view of Detective Anthony Walker. He’s a transplanted from the NYPD to a small town in Connecticut. The murder victim’s electronic diary/book chapters break-up the police pr [...]

    21. Critics agree The Blue Journal (Seventh Street Books), by L.T. Graham, is "a perfect mix of love gone wrong and suspenseful mystery,” "the PERFECT read for a summer day.” Kindling the blaze is marriage, infidelity and divorce; fueling the fire is a private journal titled Sexual Rites. As a former NY Cop untangles the steamy secrets of a dead woman's memoir, everything points to her psychotherapist. Is it one of his patients? And if so, which one…L. T. Graham is the pen name of Jeffrey Step [...]

    22. L.T. Graham weaves a tale of deceit, mystery, murder, suspense, and sexual prowess in The Blue Journal. Elizabeth Knoebel was part of the social elite and used psychologist Randi Conway’s couples group as a hunting ground for sexual partners and kept a journal of their encounters. Enter, Detective Anthony Walker, a former NYC cop who suspects one of Ms. Conway’s patients much be the killer.There are so many twists and turns during this story that it never gets boring. Just when I thought I h [...]

    23. In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received the book for free through First Reads.An interesting whodunit that left me guessing to the end. Characters that you felt sorry for, loved to hate, and those you could relate to people you know. The story line was interesting and move along at a good pace. I found myself liking a couple of quotes and highlighting them to read again and again, especially one about memories.Looking forward to reading more from L.T. Graham

    24. Your typical run of the mill who dunnit. The culprit was not too much of a surprise. Writing quality is fair. Enjoyable as a beach read, but I don't know if I would recommend it to my serious reading friends. Too much fluff.

    25. 3.5 It was a good read but I felt confused at the end because of a part that's mentioned earlier in the book but there's no closure or explanation to that part which left me being like huh?
