I honestly, am still speechless. I am not sure how to review this one.

5 Stars

It starts when we meet Ruby, who is coming home from Iraq. She was suppose to be greeted at the airport by her daughter and sister but things don't go as planned. Her bag gets stolen and her family never comes to greet her. She has to get a rental car to get herself home. When she arrives, a scene unfolds in front of her that she can't believe.

I don't want to give to much away so I will tell you about Sam McCoy. Sam

Wow. Finished this in one day, it was so engrossing. Start to finish action that had very few (if any) slow parts. The romance (while I'm fine not having any) didn't distract from the story and was well handled considering this was definitely more of a mystery and suspense story then harlequin romance. I liked that the plot got more complex as you went along, as opposed to just being about who took the MC's family, it became more of who took them, why, how were these others involved, what else w ...more

I don't put spoilers in my reviews. I just finished this book, couldn't put it down for long (have to eat, etc.) and read it in one day.
If you like Nora Roberts, you'll like Colleen Thompson. Superb storytelling, effectively weaving several strands into a rich tapestry of family, betrayals, intrigue, suspense, love of all kinds, never letting up or letting the reader go until the final, fabulous end. Sigh!
This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm buying every one I c

I read this book a couple of years ago when I was in the hospital and loved it, and not just because it helped me keep the pain at bay, so here's why: You have a strong heroine in the character of Ruby, a woman who worked in one of roughest urban battlegrounds in the world, and all she wants is to return to her beloved home in Texas and hold her 4 yr old baby daughter in her arms. It pulls at all those mother instincts we have. But when she finally sets foot on native soil, neither her sister Mi ...more

Beneath Bone Lake by Colleen Thompson starts out with a mystery as Ruby Monroe returns to her Texas hometown after a year spent in Iraq, working as a bus driver. She impatiently waits at the airport for the arrival of her sister, Misty, and four-year-old daughter, Zoe, holding with her a secret she's itching to get rid of. Only someone else seems to have gotten a hold of not only her secret, but her family, as well.

Arriving at her house with dangerous and drugged strangers in residence, Ruby cal

Thompson writes intriguing mysteries that keeps the reader wanting

Thompson is an excellent author that packs punch of surprise until the last.word is read. She keeps the reader wanting more. Great read.

Wasn't aware of the romance genre

Could have told the story with less details. Extra side plots were thrown in that didn't add to the story but seemed like excess unneeded info

A combination of action, intrigue, suspense and romance. Good plot, somewhat drawn-out but author kept it interesting and unpredictable to the end.

The book is a bit predictable, but made for a decent who done it while sick in bed. Two stars.

Hard to put down. Very identifiable heroine and a hero you rooted for. Although the perpetrator came out of left field and didn't seem to have the creepy motive I thought he should - the glimpses into his character screams serial killer /sicko- I thought the read worthwhile.

Good book. The suspense lasted throughout the book and kept my interest. I would recommend this book to any mystery or thriller lover.

I couldn't put it down. Gripping right up to the end. Was surprised with the "who did it" ending. I recommend as a good and quick read.

Slow slow start but picked up in the middle. Took a few weeks to get into it but couldn't put it down once it picked up.

When you find yourself saying "blah blah blah" in your head while reading passages, you know the book gets two stars!

Too ridiculous to make sense, too stupid to be humorous, too boring to make the reading enjoyable.
