Mistake Creek by Rachel Amphlett

mistake creekBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review

There’s a storm coming…

When Nina O’Brien returns to the small town of Mistake Creek after ten years, she’s in a race against time to protect her father’s business from an incoming storm so it can be sold to pay for his urgent medical treatment.

As flood warnings echo over the radio and the storm breaks with enormous force across the tiny Californian community, Nina is joined by others seeking shelter from the onslaught.

Her life is changed forever when a stranger appears at her door, bloodied and incoherent.

With a ruthless killer exposed among the small group, Nina is thrust into a deadly conspiracy involving a military veteran seeking revenge and an FBI agent desperate to prevent a catastrophic terrorism threat.

Alone, with no means to raise the alarm, Nina realizes that to save one man, she must learn to trust another.

My Review

Another great book with thrills, action, twists and nicely fast paced though out. There is a change here in this book as the author uses a regular person as the main character, as is regular I mean normal, with no super human powers, etc, She is a normal person trying to make her way in life as she needs to return home to help her Dad, and happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nina is thrown into turmoil of who to trust, help and who to ask for help, but she is a strong person and turns out to be a star. I also enjoyed the setting, a small area some where in California called Mistake Creek. A great place to grow up in but probably a boring place to live, that’s why things are happening there, sleepy, quiet, no one will notice. But…….

Other books by Rachel I have read. Look Closer, Under Fire, Before Nightfall
