Exposure by Brandilyn Collins

Fears – everyone has them. Some may be rational, some not. But we all have them. In her latest book, Exposure, by mistress of suspense, Brandilyn Collins, fear is brought to life. This book scared the crud out of me! As usual, Collins is masterful at weaving suspense, drama, tension and twists and turns together in a way that absolutely grips the reader. The pace is fast and it is incredibly difficult to put down.

One of the things that I love so much about Collins’ books is the way she crafts the power and faithfulness of God into her stories without being preachy or over-the-top. In Exposure, she shows us how the power of faith over fear, and good over evil does triumph in the end. Yes, in fiction and in life, there are boogeymen out there, but the will to survive and the power of Christ can certainly overcome.

Exposure is a stand-alone book, not a part of a series (though I could certainly see it becoming one). It is fantastic! Do I recommend it? Yes . . . With a disclaimer:

If you are easily scared or somewhat paranoid, maybe this book isn’t for you. For the rest, get it. Read it. With the doors locked. During the day. With the lights on. And be sure you’re not alone. Buckle up – it’s quite a ride!


By Brandilyn Collins

When your worst fear comes true.

Someone is watching Kaycee Raye. But who will believe her? Everyone knows she’s a little crazy. Kaycee’s popular syndicated newspaper column pokes fun at her own paranoia and multiple fears. The police in her small town are well aware she makes money writing of her experiences. Worse yet, she has no proof of the threats. Pictures of a dead man mysteriously appear in her home—then vanish before police arrive. Multisensory images flood Kaycee’s mind. Where is all this coming from?

Maybe she is going over the edge.

Then real danger strikes someone close to Kaycee. And her own disturbing incidents escalate. Are the two series of events related? Is she responsible for it all?

High action and psychological suspense collide in this story of terror, twists, and desperate faith. The startling questions surrounding Kaycee pile high. Her descent to answers may prove more than she can survive.
