~ Under the Covers
Life is becoming increasingly unbearable in Stillhouse Lake for Gwen Proctor and her family. The local are trying to run them out of town, journalist won’t leave them in peace and there’s the ever present threats online. So, when Gwen gets a strange call fro a desperate woman living in the small town of Wolfhunter River, then that woman is found murdered, she takes her family and goes to investigate. Only, it’s out of the frying pen and into a raging inferno.
If you want a book that will put you through a gamut of emotions then look no further than Wolfhunter River. Caine expertly weaves a story that has you feeling a mixture of frustration, fear and, at times, fury. Gwen’s story is definitely not an easy one. But, it is absolutely enthralling. Once I started reading this book, I just couldn’t put it down, the story gets its grip on you then wrenches you through each chapter.
What I love about this series is Gwen. Strong heroines are something we all love, and Gwen has been through hell and ugliness is still being thrown at her from all directions. Throughout it all she does her best to protect her children, and now Sam, her partner. She doesn’t always succeed and maybe shes doesn’t always get it right, but you can’t help admiring her ferocity and determination to try and do the right thing, even when it’s not the easiest thing.
As well as the characters, the thriller plot of this book was fantastic. It was designed to have you at the edge of your seat. The tension gradually built as the story unravelled and the full picture started to emerge. I really liked the fast pace of this story, and Caine expertly creates an atmosphere of danger and distrust. When the big climatic scenes happen, it’s almost a relief to have everything out in the open.
if you haven’t picked up this series yet, make sure you go back and start at the beginning, Stillhouse Lake, this isn’t a series to read out of order. But, it is well worth giving a try. As well as just being a really good thriller, it’s also an intensely emotional tale that sucks you into the life of Gwen, Sam, Lanny and Connor and you don’t want to miss it.
