I occasionally treat suspense novels with some skepticism. Even more so when I was blown away by the how good the first novel was. But I’m impressed with Patricia Bradley. Her second novel was just as intense as the first but had a very different story.

**I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review**
As any good suspense novel should, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. The stakes were high in so many ways for the characters in this book.
Sheriff Ben Logan is tossed into a whirlwind of a mystery in this story, and Leigh Somerall is struggling to keep ahead of her past with Ben.
Bradley writes with a certain amount of intensity that really takes a hold of the reader’s heart and doesn’t quite let it go until the last page has been read. More than once I feared for the main characters and secondary characters. I was also just as puzzled as to who was behind the mysteries that take place in this novel.
If you enjoy a nail-biter that will definitely have you struggling to put the book down, I would highly recommend Patricia Bradley. She’s an author that has quickly made it to my favorites list and I’ll be watching for more books written by her.
This book is the second in the series, but can be read as a standalone novel. There is a brief reference to the previous book that may contain a bit of a spoiler, but the books really could be read out of order.
I would love to hear from you! Who are some of your favorite suspense authors?
