Violet Dawn (Kanner Lake Series Book 1) by [Collins, Brandilyn]

About the Book

Something sinuous in the water brushed against Paige’s knee. She jerked her leg away.

What was that? She rose to a sitting position, groped around with her left hand. 

Fine wisps wound themselves around her fingers. 


She yanked backward, but the tendrils clung. Something solid bumped her wrist. 

Paige gasped. With one frantic motion she shook her arm free, grabbed the side of the hot tub, and heaved herself out.
Paige Williams slips into her hot tub in the blackness of night—and finds herself face to face with death.
Alone, terrified, fleeing a dark past, Paige must make an unthinkable choice. 
In Violet Dawn, hurtling events and richly drawn characters collide in a breathless story of murder, the need to belong, and faith’s first glimmer. One woman’s secrets unleash an entire town’s pursuit, and the truth proves as elusive as the killer in their midst.

My Review

Brandilyn Collins is one of my favorite Christian mystery writers.  Her books are so suspensful!!  Paige is new to Kanner Lake.  She found a job right away and loves it there.  The people in the town are very nice and welcoming.  She is running from something, but what?

Collins does a great job pulling the reader in.  I found myself cringing and covering my mouth at points in the story.  I could feel all that Paige went through when she found the body in her spa and the actions she took to get rid of it.

I enjoyed how Collins intermingled the characters so that the mystery continued.  She is a brilliant writer!  I purchased this book to read and review.
