Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from www.bookfun.org  The opinions shared in this review are solely my responsibility
One of the best aspects of books by Brandilyn Collins is the plethora of possible suspects coupled with the unseen change in direction the plot tends to take usually more than once!  Gone to Ground takes place in a small town where everybody usually is aware of the happenings before they even take place.  I loved the various women’s situations dealt with along with attempting to obtain a possible serial killer.
One woman was in an abusive marriage and though timid at first in facing her situation, she  is transformed  through her trials  becoming a woman filled with courage.  Then there is a woman whose brother had some personal issues and was unwilling to let his sister help him.  There was an older cleaning lady who happened to find evidence that led her to the conclusion that the owner of the house was somehow responsible for the death of a young woman. Through it all it seemed as if the Lord was drawing two of the woman to Him through the love and prayers of the cleaning woman.
For me, this was a rollercoaster ride that would at time speed through a tunnel and at other times it seemed like it was slowly climbing a hill with a drastic drop!  I would think I figured out who was responsible for the murders only to be thrown a curve in the plot and be not so sure of my conclusions.  I am amazed at how the whole tale wound to its conclusion.
I haven’t read any of Brandilyn’s novels until Gone to Ground.  However, I can tell you I will be going back and begin to read the other novels that have come from her pen!  I have no clue what is coming soon, so you can go to her website and see the various novels she has written.  Some are now being updated as well as being edited.  This is a special lady indeed.  I love her books and plan on reading more soon.  Will you join me for the suspense or the one of the other stories?  Either way, pick a book then hold on for a wonderful ride into the world of fiction and faith!
