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.

Half Romance

Reviewed: 12-09-05

As a mystery fan, I was a bit disappointed by this one. I'd guessed the whodunnits by about halfway through. And, I gotta say, there were a lot of romance elements - they're not my cup of tea and I wasn't expecting the, ummmmm, very sexy descriptions of SEVERAL carnal encounters. I found it kinda cliched too - and confess to a few laugh-out-loud moments (and not in a good way.)

Definitely fun and pretty good escapism. But for my money, 'Chill Factor' isn't a great mystery book in any sense.
