Chilling, Thrilling and Wholly Satisfying.
Imagine waking up one day to find out that you don’t know the man you are married to. Worse yet, that he is a monster. And what’s even more horrifying? That you will never be safe after what he has done. This is the story of “Stillhouse Lake” - and boy is it one helluva ride.
On the day that Gina Royal comes home to find that a car has smashed into the garage, her life literally comes crashing down before her. Turns out her husband Melvin Royal, ...more
And that was when she had one single, awful realization. It’s not a doll. And against all her best intentions, she began to scream and couldn’t stop.
WOW HOLY SHIT
I'm just s h o o k.

What a fantastic and thrilling ride. This book starts off with a wild bang and doesn't stop. Barely clocking in around 300 pages, let me tell you that this book is probably the fastest-paced thriller I have ever read. It was fucking awesome.
Despite its size and rather stra ...more
Wonderfully thrilling with lots of twists and turns as we follow Gwen in her attempt to keep her children safe from the predator hands of her monster husband. This book will certainly keep you anxiously reading from cover to cover. Not only that but if you are a fan of The Following, this has traces of that show as well.
Kudos to Ms Caine for making me keep the midnight oil burning as I read this novel.
Gina Royal returned home one night with her children in the car to find their home surrounded in the many vehicles of first responders and their flashing lights. Fearing the worst Gina announces that this is her home to only be forced from her car and put into handcuffs in front of her kids. Having no clue what is going on Gina is shocked and mortified when she finds out that a car has crashed into her home revealing that her husband's private work area was hiding his victims.
Now years later Gi ...more
I am sorry guys but this did nothing for me I DNF at 40% the premise started out fast paced easily read but for me just nothing was going on the beginning was a good start but by the time Gwen had moved to Stillwater Lake it slowed somewhat which bored me there was too much explanation & not enough movement. The characters were likeable but flawed.
It was a shame really as I had high hopes for this series again I am in the minority but so be it I always say how it is at least I am honest in m ...more
This was exciting from beginning to end! I love this spin on the typical serial killer thriller; here, we see the focus on the family the monster left behind. My nerves constantly ramped up as the tension grew; this was compulsive reading at its finest and I'm so glad I was able to snag this with my Kindle Unlimited membership. I was a bit surprised to see so many typos and formatting issues though; I don't read enough finished ebook copies to know if maybe this is normal? Anyway, it wasn't enou ...more
In general, I'm picky about endings. A bad ending can ruin the whole book for me. But a good ending can definitely sell me the next book.
However, a blatant cliffhanger attempt to sell me the next book is what we have here, and it left me really not wanting to ever read anything by this author again.
But this is something I've seen before, and I just realized I'd seen it with this same publisher. Could it be that the editors are forcing the writers into this? Whatever happened to that good old pap ...more
Imagine coming home with your kids one day and finding your garage smashed in by a drunk driver. Then even worse, finding out that your husband has been using that garage as a little chop 'em up shop.
Complete with dead body.
That's what happens to Gina Royal. The bad thing is? She lived with this dude and had two children by him and never knew that he was one of the most prolific serial killers around.
Gina is also arrested and tried as his accomplice, because just how could she not kn ...more
