Throughout this book,I felt like everything was so contrived and people did and said things that were illogical. by the end I understood why that was but the twist did not really make up for the story before it. In trying to make the end a surprise, the main character wasn't developed enough for me to feel like I knew her, or more importantly to like her. Or to feel the connection she had with the boy. Yes who wouldn't want to help a kid in need, but I wasn't feeling the extreme ...more
This time, the central character is female and one that I connected with instantly. More than anything I love level-headed protagonists, who don’t lose their presence of the ...more
I am so beyond glad that Amazon so generously gave their Prime customers a second free early release book this month because otherwise, who knows if/when I would have gotten around to reading Thief River Falls. I've read just one other book by Brian Freeman (the first in his Frost Easton series) and while I liked it, I felt that this one was leagues above it.
I really feel like I need to warn you ...more

It's really hard to say too much without giving spoilers, and that would ruin it. I loved the rural northern Minnesota setting, and Lisa was a great character. I immediately liked her. So much tragedy in her life, but she was strong and determined.
BF. has penned a Northern woods mystery action adventure titled "Thief River Falls" which begins with a young woman who is having difficulties wuth recent events in her family. The police visit looking for a child who later turns up in her yard. The child as little memory except where he heard one policeman tell another to "kill the kid". Thus begins the trip of a lifetime for a young woman and little boy. Tis is an excellent read for the ...more
I love Brian Freeman but could not get into this one at all. The story is ridiculous as is much of the dialogue. The fact that the end resolved some of that was too little too late for me. I felt no connection to the main character at all. I almost didn’t finish it.
I really, truly, deeply wanted to like this book. It was taut, and thrilling, and everything a thriller should be. And then the author threw in a ridiculous curveball that felt forced and trite and not at all fitting with the story that has been happening. Thank goodness I got this book for free as part of the Kindle First Reads program. If I has spent money on this dreck, I would be even more upset with it than I already am.
So good! Just when you think you know, you don’t. Brian Freeman is such an amazing storyteller! This story drew me in and I couldn’t stop until the end. Even then, I didn’t want it to stop. It will take me some time before I can recover, move on from this book, and begin a new one! Such an emotional ending.
