Someone is watching you! Can you sense them there just behind you? Can you feel the chill run up your spine?
For newlyweds, Natalie and Doug Larson, a honeymoon in the Adirondack forest seems an ideal way to start their lives together. As they struggle with the worst the wilderness offers, a man watches them. He wants something from them more terrifying than death. Once they are near his domain, he will do everything in his power to make sure they never walk out again.
Wicked River begins and ends with intensity. While the pace does slow through the middle, there is still this underlying creepiness and suspense throughout that made me want to turn the pages to see how the story would end. Milchman has a way with characters, they are so well written. She’s great with intrigue, so that you’re always questioning what’s really happening. Are the good guys good? Will the day be saved? I can’t answer those questions for you or I would be spoiling the story. I encourage you to get this book and read it for yourself to find out. I assure you that all your questions are answered and the book comes to a satisfying conclusion.
If you’re looking for the next mystery to create a stir in your gut, grab a copy of Wicked River. But watch your step! You never know what’s waiting out there in the forest for you!
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.
