this has been a really good book. I started this book late yesterday evening. I read over half of it last night before I went to bed. ( )

Rebecca Matlock is a speech writer for the governor of New York when she begins recieving threatening phone calls from someone claiming to be her boyfriend who says he will shoot the governor. Rebecca flees to New York City where the stalker kills someone because she annoys him and then she flees to Riptide, a small town in Maine where a college friend lives.
This is part of a series with FBI agents Savich and Sherlock, though this is the first book I have read in the series. The plot moved quickly but I found some of the characters actions to be rather dumb for supposedly brilliant FBI agents. I also saw the twist ending coming from miles away. ( )

I found the idea of this book to be intriguing. The story tells of a young lady who is being stalked; she reports this to the police but they do not believe her and, in fact, begin to accuse her of causing the problems she reports. She therefore chose to take care of herself, which included getting to a small town she had heard of from a college friend. There are twists and turns in the story involving criminals and good guys.

So -- good idea. Bad execution. This is the first Coulter story I have read, and based on this book, I would not look for others to read. I was sorely disappointed. The writing seemed juvenile; I was surprised to see she had other books that had been published (this read too much like a first-time, self-published stereotype of a book.)

I finished reading the entire book, but at the end felt I had wasted my time.

Other reviewers imply that this author's other works are of better quality. Perhaps if I stumble onto another of her titles, I will give it a try. Perhaps not. I was too disappointed in this one. ( )

Coulter slipped off the edge with this one, and it is a shame. The writing was poor - were you in a hurry, Catherine? Seems so, as the dialog and misses in the narrative made this a difficult read. That, and you know . . . she sort of went right over the cliff into unreal weirdness in this one. Too many really way out there plot lines. I can handle quite a bit of 'unbelievable' but this one? Nah. Really not something I would want to repeat. It's a shame, really, as I have enjoyed the others in this series. I will try the next, but I hope her editor is back on staff. ( )
