hopes Sleep with the Lights On was fun and eerie and fast paced and extremely entertaining Thicker Than Water had promise and loads of potential the story premise is intriguing, the characters were great well, some of them were And while the beginning of the book was kind of rocky dialogue felt a little stilted, events seemed kind of incredible, and back story might have been a bit rushed the first half of the book found its footing and progressed at a wonderful pace.But then, we hit about halfway into the book, and everything sort of plateaus I mean, sure, a lot of important events start happening, but I couldn t help but feel that Julie s stubborn reluctance to confide in Sean about her secrets, even after everything that has happened, made the story drag out a bit I get the noble this is my problem and I will deal with it schtick that a lot of us love to call Noble Idiocy Julie is motivated to keep her daughter safe, and doesn t wantpeople to know her secrets than necessary.But there comes a time in the story progression where a repetitive refusal to finally confide in someone who has proven his trustworthiness over and over again becomes a bit well, vexing.I have no problems with Julie, as an individual I understand where she s coming from She s terrified for her daughter s safety and has taken it upon herself to keep the girl safe she doesn t know who she can trust and so has lived a lifetime learning to trust only herself But there were at least three, or maybe four, or five, instances in the book where I think I gave a frustrated sigh because she wouldn t tell Sean anything about what was going on Even after she exclaims to him that, yes, she DOES indeed trust him.I mean, the guy keeps mum about a murder weapon, for crying out loud and then he doesn t say a thing about finding out one of Julie s secrets about being part of Mordecai Young s Young Believers sixteen years ago.But every time he does something to help Julie, she becomes suspicious that he s just out for dirt on her so he can get his next big scoop Despite the fact that he d had dozens of opportunities to out all of her secrets and has not done so.From a story progression standpoint, this keeps the story itself in a very stagnate place where nothing moves forward because our heroine isn t letting anything move forward And we all know that the refusal of one person to confide her secrets to the people who matter can readily causetrouble in the upcoming conflict, maybe even get someone killed But even if not from a story structure standpoint, the fact that Julie s main goal is to protect her daughter could very easily backfire on her when she tries to take everything into her own hands, even though she has no effective solution to her problem that isn t simply just to run away.So maybe it should have been time to bring someone she can trust into her circle and see if there could be another way of achieving her needs for survival Because every time she adamantly refuses legitimate, professional aide in her plight, she digs herself deeper into another ditch and well, I just kept expecting her to put herself, or her daughter, or even Sean into mortal perilThe conclusion of the book felt a little crazy and a little rushed like, I had no idea, really, what was going on However, I DO kind of see the whole full circle of events transpiring It was just executed kind of poorly, to be honest.As for the romance it wasn t terrible, truth be told Sean was a great character Julie, I didn t really relate with, even if I DO understand the reasons behind her actions The two DID have some great banter going on, and so as a partnership of co anchors, they were great together As lovers maybe not so much.I did adore Dawn, however, and loved her interaction with just about everyone 3 stars.Book 1 in the Mordecai Young trilogy 16 years ago a religious compound for runaway teens was raided by the FBI The handful of survivors thought it was all

However, everyone is not who they seem to be Julie will do anything to protect her daughter But, at what cost Maggie Shayne is without a doubt my all time favorite author I did have a few problems with this book though There was a pretty sizeable lull in the middle of the book, which I struggled to get through However, if you can get through that then you are greatly rewarded by an AMAZING and action packed ending even if a few things are predictable The only other problem I had with this book is that I did not relate or really care about the heroine, Julie, too much I liked Sean and Dawn and the other secondary characters but I just never warmed up to Julie If it wasn t for those two things I would have given this book a solid 4 stars I am looking forward to reading the next

About the Author: Maggie Shayne

I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, Alliteration Alert though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State Cortland County There arecattle than people here The nearest big cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies My road is barely paved The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.My house is a big, century old farmhouse I moved in here after my divorce in 2006 Just a little over a year later, the house, which I had named, SERENITY, burned It was 99% gutted, and I lost my two dogs, Sally, an 11 year old great Dane, and Wrinkles, my 14 year old, blind bulldog This was the culmination of my Dark Night of the soul, which had seemed to hit me all at once in 2006 2007 My mother died that year, after a 14 month battle with pancreatic cancer She was only 60 The youngest of my five daughters had left home that same year, and while that s not a tragedy at all, it felt like one to me Then came the divorce And finally there was the fire it seemed my darkest night wasn t quite finished with me after all I had lost almost everything before that point, and as I poked through the wet ashes and soot the next day, I realized that I had now been stripped all the way to the bone.No better time to start over And no, I didn t come to that realization that day there were a few days of wallowing in pity first, particularly the day after the fire, when I hit a deer and smashed up my car, which I was practically living in That s when I started to laugh Just sat on the side of the road as the deer bounded, uninjured and carefree, out of sight, and laughed It was just too ridiculous at that point, to do anything else And from there, I picked myself up, and brushed myself off, and said, okay, there s only one way to go from here Forward And that s what I did There I was at the age of harrurmphemmph, living in my one, mostly undamaged remaining room, with a dorm sized mini fridge, a futon, a TV, my cat nine lives and a laptop And not much else Though thank goodness the room that survived the fire, was a room that had its own attached bathroom Since then I have rebuilt my beloved home, which really has become my haven, my Serenity I share it now with my fianc , Lance, and we have accumulated quite the little family together Little being a relative term We have a pair of English Mastiffs, Dozer and Daisy, who weigh 203 pounds and 208 pounds respectively, and a little pudgy English Bulldog named Niblet, who is bigger than both of them, inside her mind We also have the aforementioned cat, Glorificus Glory for short, who adores her canine pups and keeps them firmly in line And we ve acquired a pair of stray cats as well, a mother and son, Luna Lulu for short and Butters aka Buddy Lulu showed up pregnant during a lunar eclipse, had a litter, and vanished again We found homes for all the kittens except one Butters We got him fixed and kept him A few months later, Lulu returned, again expecting This litter was born on the Monster Moon Again, all the kittens were spayed and neutered and placed in homes, and this time we got Lulu to the vet in time to spay her before the cycle could repeat Glory is not amused.She has a story of her own, my old Glory cat, having been with me before the Dark Times descended, she went through it all with me, moved with me, survived the fire, and remains with me still She s tolerating the newcomers Barely.My partner is an artist, a mechanic, a welder and an inventor, and the rumors are true, he is much younger than I
