The story is fast-paced as there is a lot going on in Zane’s life and in Molly’s. It is told in the third person alternating between Zane’s and Molly’s POV. This is a device the author used in the first book as well, and it is a very useful way of giving readers a lot of information in a novella-length book. Who is following Zane and why? The answer surprised me.
Well-written and edited as all this author’s books are, it is a good blend of suspense and an understated romance. I like this author’s books and the way she writes. Easy reading.
Heather Day Gilbert packs a lot of action and suspense into her novellas! Undercut may be shorter than a full-length novel but it’s not at all lacking in character development or tension. I will say, though, after reading Undercut and its predecessor Out of Circulation (which is still my fave of the two), I don’t really think I want to physically visit the fictional small town of Hemlock Creek anytime soon. It seems to attract its fair share of really dangerous bad guys. Visiting it via the safety of fiction? Yes please!
Right from the start, Zane Boone is an extremely compelling character. A former Marine sniper, he thinks he’s being stalked but his ex-wife says it’s just his PTSD and threatens to cut off visitation with his daughter. Zane is also starting to wonder if it’s all in his head, but when the stakes escalate he can’t deny the truth.
Molly McClure, I was less fond of going into this read. I didn’t care for her all that much in Out of Circulation, although she redeems herself a bit in the end. In Undercut, she grew on me though and by the end of this novella she had me solidly in her corner! Great character growth from Out of Circulation through Undercut.
Another character I really enjoy is Molly and Kate’s brother Brandon. He makes me smile every time he’s on the page, and I can’t wait for his story which is coming up in Deadlocked. Speaking of Kate, I loved checking in with her and Ace, two more of my faves in this series. (Side note: Ace Calhoun looks an awful lot like Henry Cavill)
Bottom Line: Undercut will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first word to the last. Edge-of-your-seat suspense, high-stakes action, and some surprising twists ensure you won’t be putting this book down until you’ve reached the end. Fortunately, it’s a quick read so you shouldn’t lose too much sleep lol. A gentle message of faith fits organically into the story, and you’ll be solidly invested in the McClure family and their circle of friends.

Undercut is a great installment in the Hemlock Creek series, and I'm looking forward to book three!

It involves snipers, stalkers, and of course some shooting.
My only regret was that it was too short!Read more
