Brandilyn Collins is one of the best suspense writers. She gets the most possible mileage out of each written word so that you get beyond the sense that you are reading and you fall right into the story. She is amazingly gifted, and the only thing I don't like about her books is that it takes her much longer to write them than it takes me to read them!
This book actually gets a bit more personal. Over the Edge is a medical mystery dealing with Lyme Disease, and if ticks creeped me out before this book, you can bet I'm not going near the woods not that I've read it! The research is comprehensive, so complete, in fact, that Brandilyn suffered through Lyme disease twice before writing the book. She knows how devastating this disease can be.
This is a fabulous book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to stay out of the woods from this point on! It's fast paced, incredibly well written and researched, and very plausible.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
In addition, Brandilyn’s other latest release is Final Touch, third in The Rayne Tour series—young adult suspense co-written with her daughter, Amberly. The Rayne Tour series features Shaley O’Connor, daughter of a rock star, who just may have it all—until murder crashes her world.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University's Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases—especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings—which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment.
One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme—or their young daughter will be next.
But Janessa's marriage is already rocky. She's so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all.
Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa.
“A taut, heartbreaking thriller. Collins is a fine writer who knows how to both horrify readers and keep them turning pages.”
