This third book in the Kanner Lake Series will grab a hold of your attention and not let go until the last page is turned. This story only has a few scenes in Kanner Lake, but focuses on one of the residents, Carla Radling.
Carla Radling has been hiding in Kanner Lake for 10 years. No one knows anything about her past and that's the way she likes it. She has a client interested in some real estate, so she agrees to meet him one evening at the property to take a walk through. The next thing she knows he pulls a gun on her, telling her he is a hit man! She manages to escape and then is on the run. Why is someone out to kill her? Why now? She promised she would never tell her secret and she has kept her promise. Carla can't go to her friends or the police as the hit man knows all about them and has threatened to kill them if Carla asks them for help. She starts driving with no real destination in mind.
While on the run, Carla relives her painful memories from a time when she was 16 years old and wanted to be somebody because her mom always told her she was nothing. Note: There is a recounting of a scene where two people are in a sexual situation. No specific details are mentioned, but I did want to make readers aware of this. Carla feels God is punishing her for her choices made so long ago. What is she going to do now? She can't outrun the hit man forever, and he won't give up. Should she go to the police and/or the press and tell them the whole sordid story? Her life will be ruined along with a lot of other peoples' lives. Will she learn about the God of forgiveness and ask Him for the same?
The dialogue is snappy and quick and sometimes humorous. The tension and suspense will keep you spellbound. The plotline has some surprising twists and turns. I enjoyed seeing characters from the previous two books appear again in this third book. I can't wait to start reading the fourth book in the series, Amber Morn. I highly recommend this book and this entire series. Brandilyn knows how to write to grab the reader's attention and not let go until the conclusion. Great story Brandilyn!!

I found a correlation to the message re: faith and how God was in control no matter how difficult life can be. The price was right and I received my shippment quickly. I had 2 books in the series but could not find the other 2 and was pleased with the service.

Lauryn Abbott5 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2009Lauryn AbbottHi, my name is Tracy, and Im a Brandilyn addict! I have finished the book Crimson Eve, which is the third in the Kanner Lake Series by Brandilyn Collins. Brandilyn is known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense and with Crimson Eve she did not disappoint.This was masterfully written, fast-paced and completely engaging. While it is a continuation of the Kanner Lake series, it differs in that it does not spend much time in Kanner Lake. Carla, the main character, is on the run, hiding from a dangerous man who is desperate to eliminate any possibility of a past secret coming to light. The story is brilliantly woven together with the threads of power and politics, ambition and conspiracy, and deception and betrayal. To the very last moment it was impossible to predict. This really was a thrilling and gripping. Its time now for me to get my next fix. Amber Morn, Im coming for you
