Chill Factor: A Novel | [Sandra Brown]

Chill Factor: A Novel

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

Publisher's Summary

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary's chief of police. Dutch's reluctance to let her go isn't Lilly's only obstacle. As she's trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man. She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she'd met the previous summer. They're forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn't the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her. Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her?

    "Chill Factor"

    "Chilled to the bone."

    I have mixed feelings when it comes to dramatic elements - some narrators are effective, some should be fired. Stephen Lang is effective and did a great job. I could visualize the different characters and say "those are beliveable people." Unfortuneatly, the plot is predictable, the mechanics of the story are very well known and the book reads as a first foray into the genre for the author. By the end of chapter 2 you know the protagonist isn't Tierny - the only surprize is how clumsy Ms Brown set her stage with respect to snow and automobiles.

    "The best Sandra Brown I've ever"

    Brown is best know for her romances with explicit sex and yes, there's some of that here, but there's also a really good story with good suspense and mystery.

    Not for the boys, but if you like Brown -- you'll love this!

    "Should be in the Romance category"

    Well, I suffered through it all hoping that somewhere it would be worth it. Wrong. This was so sappy I couldn't help laughing out loud. The slooooow speech of the "hero" Tierney is so hysterical. I guess it's supposed to be his calm cool strong he-man demeaner. Puuuuleeeeze! And the rest of it all is so obvious. Unless you are expecting a sickly Southern Romance don't waste your time.
