Blue Ridge Fear
by Robin Weaver
Can things get any worse? After an intimate relationship with her former boss sours, Sienna Sanders is slapped with a lawsuit for breach of contract. Broke and jobless, she moves in with her airhead cousin in a too-small mountain cabin–their joint inheritance. But things get worse when a hiking misstep leaves Sienna stranded. That is, until a hunky stranger comes to her rescue. A zing of attraction has her thinking he might be the one. But there’s a psycho stalking the area who’s already killed four women–women who look a lot like Sienna. Her stranger insists his name is Carson Addison, but Sienna discovers that isn’t true. Plus, her dreamboat protector, a.k.a. possible stalker, only materializes when she’s alone. Can she trust her heart and believe he’s not a killer? Or is she making herself an easy target for the monster lurking in the mountains?
I’m not going to talk about any plot points as I think the reader just needs to experience this book with no background. Yes I am evading. The author taught me well reading this book (grin)
|I am a HUGE fan of a great mystery novel. I have read everything from the classics of Agatha Christie and Lawrence Sanders to the contemporary greats of Dan Brown and James Patterson. And now I have found another author to place on my list of GREAT mystery writers, Ms. Robin Weaver.
Blue Ridge Fear grabs you from the very first few pages and doesn’t let go till almost the very end!
Sienna Sanders finds herself living in a mountain cabin left to her by her uncle, along with her space cadet cousin, who she hasn’t gotten along with in the past. The condition, they must stay in the cabin together for one year before it becomes hers. Unlike her heiress cousin, Sienna is out of opinions; this cabin is all she has left. Being strong and independent women, she has determined to make it work.
Till she hears the news that there is a serial killer of young women luring in the peaceful mountains she now calls home and she thinks she has just met him!!!
That is about as much as I dare write without giving anything away. We are introduced to no less than 5 characters that could be the killer! Just when you think you have it figured out who the killer is, Ms. Weaver adds a new twist or tad bit to throw the reader for a loop. I constantly had to reevaluate my theories on who the killer was. I haven’t had this much fun reading a story since Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code! It took everything I had not to turn to the last chapter to see who the killer was.
