I’ve been on a quest to vary the type of books I read so that my range in reading selections includes everything from literary classics to nonfiction bestsellers. Since time is my biggest obstacle to enjoying more books, I’ve taken to downloading books from iTunes or Netlibrary. One of my recent purchases was Exposure, a stand-alone novel that came out earlier this year by Brandilyn Collins. For $9.95 I purchased the audiobook on iTunes and enjoyed listening to the story on my iPhone.
I love suspense novels, and this book by Brandilyn is masterfully done. As someone who studies the work of other writers, I can honestly say Brandilyn is extremely adept in the fine art of storytelling. So often, I read suspense novels and figure out the ending much too quickly, but in this case, I didn’t see the ending coming whatsoever. That, my friends, is the sign of gifted storytelling and writing.
In case you enjoy seatbelt suspense—that’s Brandilyn’s tagline—let me share the blurb from the back cover of Exposure:
When your worst fear comes true.
Someone is watching Kaycee Raye. But who will believe her? Everyone knows she’s a little crazy. Kaycee’s popular syndicated newspaper column pokes fun at her own paranoia and multiple fears. The police in her small town are well aware she makes money writing of her experiences. Worse yet, she has no proof of the threats. Pictures of a dead man mysteriously appear in her home—then vanish before police arrive. Multisensory images flood Kaycee’s mind. Where is all this coming from? Maybe she is going over the edge. High action and psychological suspense collide in this story of terror, twists, and desperate faith. The startling questions surrounding Kaycee pile high. Her descent to answers may prove more than she can survive.
If you’re looking for a gripping suspense novel on the go, I’d definitely encourage you to check out Exposure. For more information about Brandilyn’s novels, you can find her on the web at www.brandilyncollins.com.
Happy reading, I mean listening, everyone!
