Gone to Ground by Brandilyn Collins
The sleepy little town of Amaryllis has a dark secret. A serial killer has been killing women in the town for three years- one every six months. When another murder takes place, three women from the town each suspect someone. But, all three can't be right about their suspicions. Or can they?
Brandylin Collins has some great Christian suspense novels. I was not disappointed by Gone to Ground. In fact, I was spellbound and didn't want to stop reading.
The characters were interesting and believable. The writing style- using the point of view of each of the main women- made the book extremely readable. This was a read to keep me up at night. No trite, predictable plot this! The suspense was perfect, and I had no idea of the ending.
Collins novels are Christian but not blatantly so. They do have references to God, church, and prayer. But, they aren't preachy at all and would be appealing to Christian or secular readers.
If you're looking for a page turning suspense in the James Patterson style, check out Gone to Ground. It will be available for release in March of 2012. It's definitely a good read!
I rate this one PG for violence and crime scene information, and I give it a strong five stars!
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes. All opinions are entirely my own.
