The way Sherrie Frontz has woven the characters’ motivations and resulting power punch action at every turn kept me flipping page after page well into candlelight hours. I happily lugged my iPad onto the commuter train to work every day and couldn’t wait to read what happened to the characters I had grown fond of in the earliest chapters of the book. Unlike many novels, the “middle sag,” where characters jump from diner to bar to the office just for book filler, is delightfully missing. The 2nd Act carries the heavy burden of appropriate pacing with each new twist, which adds to the suspense factor quite nicely.
I would be remiss if I left out Kellyn’s fantastic new love interest who portrays the type of strong gentleman with a pinch of bad ass that women want to love and men wish they could become. The sparks that fly between the two of them add to the story line in a way that beefs up the serial killer issues that cannot be ignored by important characters in this delightful novel. But like all romantic endeavors, theirs is not without realistic and necessary tension and turmoil that could deeply impact their future together.
I am not a fan of spoilers, so I won’t be guilty of it here today. However, just know that the ending is not something I will easily forget. In fact, it leaves me wondering how fast Sherrie can write the next book in the Land’s End series. I’ll be first in line to pick up my personal copy! I’m delighted that I found this author on the Mystery Thriller Week website.
As Sam is having problems coming to terms with what happened to her at the end of the last story, her daughter Delaney asks Kellyn, a psychologist, to help out. But Kellyn has already met Madison Ruiz, and events take a sinister turn.
As with the first book, this one also needs some editing, but it has a strong story full of action and suspense that will keep you reading until the end. Again, I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
The Kellyn character is well developed and believable. When informed that her husband has been killed while on duty responding to a domestic disturbance call, Kellyn goes into early labor and also losses her baby, all on Christmas Eve.
Once you get into the serial killer part of the story it gets gruesome and not the kind of book I am comfortable reading. Thankfully, the author does not go into horrible graphic detail. Kellyn meets the dysfunctional family from the first book in the series and becomes deeply involved in their tragic lives. This connection brings a love interest (after more than twenty years) into her life.
The connection with the two families gets deeper as the story progresses. I really liked the book and think the author has done a good job with character development. What I did not like were the coincidences that enabled the killer. It was just too easy.
The book could use some proof reading, (all proof readers go to Heaven) but it is well written and the story had some good, although predictable, suspense. I love when the heroes are flawed, I really liked Ms. Frontz’s characters, especially Kellyn.
