Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suspenseful My first exposure to this author, I found it to be a suspenseful mystery. It has believable, likeable characters who have made mistakes that affect other people's lives. A woman on the run from a hitman, another woman trying to find her to confess a secret, a smooth politician who has charmed the nation, and even a hitman who you feel sorry for, because his own family is threatened unless he finishes the job. You feel the stress and fear of Carla on the run, not sure who she can trust. For the first half of the book, I thought I knew who the bad guy was, but I was wrong. Her diary from her teenage years shows the development of the incident that led to her current situation. A satisfactory ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Page Turning, Sleepless Read! The newest suspense novel from this author. A local Kanner Lake real estate agent, Carla, takes a prospective buyer to a lakeside estate, who then turns on her and tells her he is a hired gun, hired to kill her because people want her dead. Carla escapes and has to look to her past to find out who wants her gone as she tries to stay one step ahead of the madman after her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent suspense novel! It's probably not surprising that I sped through Crimson Eve and loved it, considering that's been my experience with the previous two novels in the Kanner Lake series. :) It probably does help to read the books in order, but I think each one does a good job of having most of its story stand apart from previous events. There may be references in Crimson Eve to Books One and Two, but they don't have a huge impact on this story, and I appreciate that - there have been so many times in my reading history that I've only been able to find a later book in a series and I hate to be shut out. I made guesses along the way with Crimson Eve, trying to determine what was going to happen. I was close with a few things, but Brandilyn has proven once again how much better she is at plotting. She's been honing her skills for years and I love the result! And just in case you don't think suspense novels are your thing, this one is action-filled with realistic characters and great dialogue. (I'm so picky about translating everyday speech to the page!) I hope you'll like it, too.
