TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – VIOLET DAWN by BRANDILYN COLLINS

                                                                             

 

THE BLURB:

Something sinuous in the water brushed against Paige’s knee. She jerked her leg away.


What was that? She rose to a sitting position, groped around with her left hand. 


Fine wisps wound themselves around her fingers. 


Hair?


She yanked backward, but the tendrils clung. Something solid bumped her wrist. 


Paige gasped. With one frantic motion she shook her arm free, grabbed the side of the hot tub, and heaved herself out.

Paige Williams slips into her hot tub in the blackness of night—and finds herself face to face with death.

Alone, terrified, fleeing a dark past, Paige must make an unthinkable choice.

In Violet Dawn, hurtling events and richly drawn characters collide in a breathless story of murder, the need to belong, and faith’s first glimmer. One woman’s secrets unleash an entire town’s pursuit, and the truth proves as elusive as the killer in their midst.

 

 

THE AUTHOR:

Brandilyn Collins is an award-winning and best-selling novelist known for her trademarked Seatbelt Suspense®–fast-paced, character-driven suspense with myriad twists and an interwoven thread of faith. She also writes insightful contemporary novels with rich characters. She is often blamed for keeping her readers up at night, as they “just have to see what happens next.”

In nonfiction, Brandilyn is known for her distinctive book on fiction-writing techniques, Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn From Actors (John Wiley & Sons). Writers Digest Magazine named Getting Into Character one of the top books on writing of 2002.

You can read excerpts from all Brandilyn’s books at her Web site: http://www.brandilyncollins.com. That’s also a good place to subscribe to her free newsletter, Sneak Pique, so you can be among the first to know about her latest releases.

 

MY REVIEW:

WOWIE!!  WOWIE!!  WOWIE!!

Seatbelt Suspense indeed!! Strap on your belt and strap it on tight! This book grabs you quick and does not let go.

Paige’s anxiety leaps off the page with depth and reality, her instinct for flight over fight pounding and loud. Her history whispers into a screeching terror, even before explanation is offered. Tangents pierce the whole, completing rather than deflating the story.

I immediately felt a protective instinct for Paige, her melancholy alluding to a deep sorrow. Ms. Collins introduced each new key player with their own complications, building the tension in the already taut story. I love that her chapters sometimes jump to a different facet of the story—though I must admit it threw me at first.

But like a well-oiled machine, each chapter and facet, each story thread comes together to create a jagged puzzle, that once complete makes a stunning picture.

 

 

ROBIN’S FEATHERS:

ALL | THE | FEATHERS!
