I enjoyed this book, and I'm in the process of reading Thomas Lakeman's first novel The Shadow Catchers, because of this book.

It's about a kidnapping that happened many years ago. Two young girl friends come across a creepy guy, he ends up taking the friend, and the other girl (Peggy Weaver) ends up running away. The friend is found, her family forgives Peggy for running and live goes on...many years later, Peggy is an FBI agent, comes home, and her friend disappears again.

I thought there were a...more
Blach! Scattered. The story was so scattered....shooting off into 15 different directions and non of the story directions kept me reading. At about 50 pages from the end I got so tired of the various angles and just wanted to know the basic ending I actually skipped to the 10 pages! I've stopped reading books before but I've never skipped to the end before. Well, I guess it says something that i at least wanted to know the end....just didn't want to ahve to read through the endless story to get...more
I do not ordinarily read crime novels, but was drawn to CHILLWATER COVE because I grew up in Tennessee and graduated from a university eerily similar to the fictional Avalon College. This book grabbed me from the start, and I ended up reading it until the wee hours of the morning. It has great pacing, heart-pounding suspense, and characters who are so well-fleshed out you can almost reach out and touch them. The novel puts the reader through the emotional wringer because you come to care about t...more
I almost didn't finish reading this one. It went off in a hundred different directions, most of which were improbable. Also hard to believe that the main character had no recollection of anything, yet it all came flooding back at *just the right moment.* Blech. Not recommended.

I have to say that I enjoyed the first book in this series a lot more. It may be due to the fact that I fell in love with Mike Yeager in the SHADOW CATCHERS and he only plays a minor role in this book. I would have liked to have seen a little more depth to Peggy's character and background. Even though CHILLWATER COVE focuses on her almost exclusively, I didn't feel like I really got to KNOW her like I did Mike. Still, as far as the story goes, it was exciting and as in SC there are lots of twist...more
I liked his first book with Mike Yeager. This one dealt with his boss, Peggy Weaver. She goes home to Tennessee, as an old friend, Samantha is in trouble, because photo's appeared with Sam in them as a tween while she was kidnapped. Once again Samantha disappears and Peggy is trying to find her. Her attempts are hindered by her dad who happens to be the town police.
At first I thought the book was a duplicate of the first, just a change of character, but reading further it is completely differen...more
In The Shadow Catchers Lakeman introduced Mike Yeager and had a secondary character, Peggy Weaver, that was his former girlfriend/lover and boss. In this outing Peggy takes center stage and Yeager plays a small supporting role. As before with Yeager, Lakeman does of a good job of developing the Weaver character beyond what you saw in the first book. And as before, the story proceeds through twists and turns with the occasional red herring thrown in. Also, as before you are kept wondering if seve...more

Fresh out of undercover training, Agent Roy Hansen is ready to take on the world. Or at least he thought he was until his first assignment. While doubting his reasons for joining the FBI, he meets a beautiful co-ed with her own problems.

This book was kind of odd. It was about this kidnaping years ago and how it repeated in the present. There are various parts of the book that are kind of pointless and are never mentioned again. Overall, I think the plot idea is extremely interested but the book left me with a kind of quick, unfinished ending.

I read Broken Wing which was by the same author so I thought I would give this book a try. It is basically a prequel to Broken Wing as the same main characters are in both books. It is a good read. Finished it in 2 days.
This book is definitely a page-turner. Like most good thrillers, you really don't know who is the good guy or the bad guy until the end. I would definitely read more by this author!
The best reason to read this book is for the description of southern small town life. The father as the main figure in this setting is well drawn.

I chose it b/c it's set in TN, but I couldn't really buy into it. Good story line, interesting characters w/ all sorts of family conflict.
the plot seems a bit weak for my reading enjoyment. Not on my memorable book list.
Didn't even finish it...not good enough to keep me wanting to pick it up again.
