Fantastic gripping thriller,
This review is from: Out Of Control (Paperback)
Out Of Control by Desiree Holt is a gripping thriller that kept me in intense suspense from the very start. I honestly think this is the best erotic romantic suspense that I have read.
Carrie Nolan escaped a horrific attack by a pedophile when she was just a little girl. Her family fled town but she could never escape that most cruel and agonizing event in her life. She changed her name and became Dana Moretti, author of real-life crime novels. She has spent her life trying to solve unsolved crimes, but none of it has brought her any peace. Twenty-five years after surviving the attack, she returns to the small town where it all happened and decides to write a book about the pedophile killings that included her little sister. The townspeople aren't happy that she is there stirring up old wounds and soon after she arrives a killer strikes the town again.
I very highly recommend this book and give it a rating of 5/5. I would give it more if I could. The writing is outstanding with a brilliant story that kept me completely engrossed in the book from the minute I started until the very end. There is small town drama, mystery, suspense, and romance. The thing that impressed me most was the excellent quality of the serial killer mystery part of the story. It was superb and would stand up against any suspense thriller out there. There are plenty of twists, turns and surprises that kept me guessing until the end.
I loved Dana (Carrie) right from the start. Even after all she has been through in her life, and even with all of her scars, she is still very strong and determined. She's intelligent and has learned a great deal about finding clues that are often overlooked. Still, she is very emotionally damaged from what happened as a child. Sheriff Cole Landry is a strong and capable lawman, but he's also a good man who is patient, kind, and compassionate. These are two characters who will definitely stay with me for years to come! This is the first book I have read by Desiree Holt and I was so extremely impressed. I am definitely going to be looking for more of her books.
