4.0 out of 5 stars Good Suspense, Mediocre Mystery., July 15, 2007
This review is from: Another Life (Mass Market Paperback)
The suspense in this novel had my heart pounding in the beginning and getting up to check my locks farther into the book. The author does a great job of making you loathe the villian of the story. Unfortunately, the outcome is fairly obvious, as are the suspects. There were not nearly enough red herrings to make for a great mystery. A little too predictable in my opinion and would have rated even lower for that reason, but I chose to give it four stars rather than three for the pure adrenaline rush it gave me while reading and keeping me glued to the pages. Only unbelievable factor in the book is how unlucky the main character is to escape one tragedy only to go to the next and even another. The old saying "When it rains, it pours" really applies to this woman.

Sharon Moore is married to an evil man who will do everything he can to not only abuse her both physically and mentally, but to turn every person in their small town against her, hoping to make her completely incompetent to take care of herself, her husband and her son. At least that's what he has everyone believing. Knowing that her husband will not stop until she is dead, Sharon escapes town with her son, fakes her own death and finds a dead woman's identity to assume. Everything is going great until she realizes that she shares far too much in common with the woman who died in a mysterious fire. Someone is stalking her, but is it her husband or someone else entirely? Her son is sick. Neither one of them is safe. And someone wants her dead for good.

Is it worth buying?

It's not the best mystery, but the suspense is good. For that alone it isn't bad if you can get a good price on it. Used, or checking it out from the library is your best bet so you aren't disappointed. Especially if you are one who easily figures out who did it.
