    4.5 I was so confused stars.Sandra Browns writing never fails to lure me into the story With equal doses of suspense and mystery she also has the ability to weave in a certain level of sex appeal in way that creates anticipation and when the moments happen Let me start by saying this one drove me a little batty It was fantastic of course but for the first 60% or so my thoughts were spinning in so many different directions that I my little brain was about to explode Where to begin with 4.5 I was so confused stars.Sandra Browns writing never fails to lure me into the story With equal doses of suspense and mystery she also has the ability to weave in a certain level of sex appeal in way that creates anticipation and when the moments happen Let me start by saying this one drove me a little batty It was fantastic of course but for the first 60% or so my thoughts were spinning in so many different directions that I my little brain was about to explode Where to begin with this one The setting for Chill Factor is a little town called Cleary It s that kind of town where everyone knows everyone else s business Things are a bit unsettled in Cleary because 5 women have gone missing with no suspect at hand and the only apparent common connection is a blue ribbon found at each location the woman were last seen Though a threatening storm is approaching Lilly Martin and her ex husband Dutch Burton head to their winter cabin to remove all their belonging since there will be new owners moving in soon Their time spent together is tense if nothing else Things have happened within their lives that has left their relationship strained and broken Lilly is ready to move on but Dutch, well he hates the thought of not having Lilly in his life As they leave separately to head back down the mountain, things are about to change for both of them While Dutch makes his way down the mountain through the storm, Lilly isn t so lucky Without warning she loses control of her car never expecting to hit a man who is out in the storm With no other choice they return to her cabin for safety.What is surprising to Lilly is she knows this man It is Ben Tierney Though their meeting was back in the summer, it was a meeting that neither has forgotten They had an undeniable attraction then and now that they are confined together who knows what will happen.Tierney isn t a local though His visits to town have been because of the column he writes for a outdoorsmen magazine Or so it appears When distressing information surfaces, and Lilly doesn t make it down the mountain, the already present tension in town heightens Felling trapped Lilly doesn t know what or who to believe And because neither Ben or herself has a connection with anyone from town they are left with only their thoughts and desire to get off the mountain.And then it happens.In true SB form, the last 30% of the book kicked ass With my heading spinning like crazy trying to figure out the connections, trying to get my answers to all my what the hell moments , shit starts to happen From seeing Dutch in true form, to the locals William Ritt, Marilee Ritt, Wes Hamer and Scott Hamer, I found myself picking my jaw off the floorthan once I cannot even begin to tell you what goes on Tierney and Lilly are surviving by a thread Both are on edge for their own reasons, Lilly s are apparent but Tierney s areof a mystery With only a fireplace as their source of warmth, human nature and desire takes over Neither Lilly nor Tierney were prepared for what was happens between them With doubt, fear and desperation taking over Lilly s thoughts, Tierney finds himself saying and doing things he feels he has no other choice with There was no stone unturned in this one I ended up loving it like all her other books I have recently read I must say that this one had my favorite epilogue

    Reviewed at Cross My Heart Writings and ReviewsLike most Sandra Brown books, Chill Factor is high on suspense and rich in details with a setting that plays intricately into the story The list of possible who done it candidates is laden with red herrings and the stakes are high Like the road that snakes up the mountainside where Lilly Martin finds herself stranded in a cabin during a blizzard, the plot is twisted with s turns and roadblocks If only she had headed down right behind her ex Reviewed at Cross My Heart Writings and ReviewsLike most Sandra Brown books, Chill Factor is high on suspense and rich in details with a setting that plays intricately into the story The list of possible who done it candidates is laden with red herrings and the stakes are high Like the road that snakes up the mountainside where Lilly Martin finds herself stranded in a cabin during a blizzard, the plot is twisted with s turns and roadblocks If only she had headed down right behind her ex husband, she would have been off the mountain before the storm hitand she wouldn t be trapped alone in a cabin with a man that she s extremely attracted to one that may or may not be a serial killer Ben Tierney is a man of mystery Very little is known about him other than the fact that he s an extreme sports writer and attracts women like flies to honey Lilly first met him on a kayaking trip the previous summer They both felt the jolt of chemistry that passed between them, but Lilly was still married to the very jealous police chief of the small, mountain town at the time They parted ways, each wanting but not takingAnd now, they ve met again under much different circumstances Five local women are missing, presumed dead The town s people are on edge, tempers are volatile The only stranger in town is Ben does that make him the most likely suspect Should Lilly trust her heart or follow the evidence Chill Factor is intense with on the edge of your seat suspense filling the pages from cover to cover The character list is stacked with possible suspects damaged, fallible characters with motive, opportunity, and major issues of their own The rugged, frozen winter setting plays heavily into the storyline as roads are impassable with no one getting up or down the mountain Brown is a master at throwing readers off the scent of the real culprit, but I managed to figure this one out early But with heart racing, adrenalin inducing scenes playing out through the block buster ending, it didn t lessen my enjoyment My only minor issue was the lack of open communication between the hero heroine with a couple of over the top scenes, but still another chilling story by this author Another Must Read

    Holy crap on a cracker Ms Brown can definitely spin a tale As many books as I have read by her, I am always amazed at her writings She blew my mind again with this novel I just knew who the culprit was but I was wrongover and over again So many little mysteries inside one big mystery I loved this book If you are a true fan of SB, and have never read this one, then grab a copy and enjoy.

Then there is the city councilman high school football coach, Wes Hamer, who I will kindly refer to as the town asshole and his subservient wife and football star son, Scott There is the town pharmacist, William Ritt, who gives out town gossip eventhan prescriptions and his old maid sister, and high school teacher, Marilee Ritt image error There are FBI agents, and simple townsfolk alike, all looking for answers And they ALL look guilty But none so much as the man now trapped with Lilly up in her cabin image error And Lilly finds herself caught between two realities Is Ben Tierney, the man of her dreams or the star of her nightmares Can he really be Blue the suspected serial killerJust because you re paranoid doesn t mean everybody still isn t out to get youimage errorI don t want to sleep.image error And will it be him who takes her life or will it be her own inherent weakness that takes her down in the end image error This was a fantastically written story of trust and deception, murder and heroism How far does someone need to go to prove their innocence or is it even possible image error And will the hysteria of bloodlust building in the town be the downfall of an innocent man image errorI ll be better at it this time, Lilly I swear to you I ll love you like you ve never been lovedRiveting And yes there is romance, but you must be patient It is hard earned So far Sandra Brown has proven to be one hell of a great writer This is the second book of hers that I have read and loved, and it will not be the last Highly recommended
