Publisher's Summary

Suffering from writer's block, novelist Rachel Ames escapes to a lake cabin to calm her mind and regain a sense of herself. The location is perfect. Isolated. Beautiful. Inspiring. It even comes with a good-looking landlord who shows an interest in her. But she can't shake the sense that something terrible has followed her to the lake, something just beyond her consciousness, something out on the edge where the sounds of a raging fire and sirens linger whenever she slows down to listen. Determined to make the cabin work, she tries to settle in and give her new life a chance. But when strange things begin to happen around her, she wonders if she's made a terrible mistake. As the darkness that's followed her manifests itself in inexplicable ways, her concept of reality is stretched thin and she realizes nothing at the lake is what it seems. As she fights to survive with her sanity intact, she understands too late that the location she's chosen for herself is far from perfect.

    Story
    "The ending unfortunately felt like patchwork"

    I made it through to the end because I needed to piece the story together. I was interested enough and needed the ending to help tie the story together. It fell apart for me about 3 -4 chapters near the end. Then there was an attempt to pull it together but sadly I was disappointed. I love a good psychological suspense /horror story but this fell a bit flat.

    "Excellent! 5 stars!"

    Loved this story! It even made me cry! Not horror in a scary sense. This is a journey into tragedy, love, loss and the frailty of being human.

    Story
    "A deeply disturbing delight"

    I loved everything about this perfectly paced novella. I'd leave it at that, but a review requires at least fifteen words.

    "A good listen"

    Although the book had some long parts, I did continue to listen and try to figure out the mystery. Give this book a chance.

    "The Torment of Rachel Ames"

    "Pretty darn good!"

    It was worth it. I rarely review but I liked this short novel. It was haunting, disturbing and educational. I enjoyed every moment.

    "Confused"

    I am not sure how I felt about this book. Parts were good but other parts confused me. I guess this is what the author was wanting, but it left me feeling like I really didn't like the book. The ending was a blessing because it answered so many questions.

    "Meh"

    The narrators voice is annoying. Too slow and soft. Story is ok. Didn't care for the bitchy protagonist.
