When Stalking Turns To Murder – Sunrise Awakening by Amanda Seigrist @amanda_siegrist

Sunrise Awakening by Amanda Siegrist is a romantic suspense novel I recommend traveling down the road on the cover to arrive at your destination…the end.

I love the ominous tag line.

Sunrise Awakening is Amanda Siegrist’s debut into the romantic suspense world, and she did a great job, using misdirection and multiple villains to distract me.

The opening was fantastic. I couldn’t help but laugh at myself for being hooked so fast and I must say, I believed every word of it.

Jake, literally, bumped into Maddie, and it wasn’t only the coffee that burned him. He left a definite impression on her too. BUT…

Our killer is was pissed, had his eye on her first and was even angrier when they hooked up. Will that put Jake on the killer’s radar too…and her brother, who is very protective and comes to her aid when things begin to really heat up. Good thing Jake and Lucas quickly become friends.

I didn’t see it coming. Amanda Siegrist led me down a path that was so muddied I could not see clearly. She keeps the killer’s identity hidden, pulling me here and there, just like Jake and Maddie’s romance.

I love the push and pull of romantic suspense as danger and terror swirl around the characters. Keeps more than one story going on and creates an sense of anticipation, waiting for evil to rear its ugly head.

Maddie isn’t the only one in danger.

Sunrise Awakening has one of those don’t do it moments…don’t go in the basement, don’t open the door, don’t go outside…

If you do, you just may find yourself in the dark, alone…

I can’t imagine what it would feel like, knowing you are going to be killed….being unable to do anything to help yourself as you wait to die, and the killer lovin’ every minute of it.

The murders are brutal, savage. The killer enjoyed inflicting pain, torturing the victims with fear and terror and the knowledge that their pain increased his pleasure.

Sunrise Awakening by Amanda Siegrist has all the ingredients for a wonderful romantic suspense novel. There’s plenty of mystery, danger and anticipation of what would happen next. I am happy to know it was a debut novel, because if Amanda’s first one is this good, I can only imagine what is to come and I plan on being around to find out

Sunrise Awakening is the first book of the series and can stand alone.

One thing has always driven Maddie Dalton up the wall—her brother acting too overprotective. After meeting Jake Anders, who makes her heart race, she finds he has the same annoying trait. Yet, she can’t help falling in love with him despite that. Of course, she should give him a small reprieve since someone’s stalking her. If only she could find the nerve to tell him.

Jake’s life is finally back on track, especially after meeting Maddie. When a murder rocks his small town, his life suddenly turns into chaos. The killer doesn’t stop at one body either. As he digs deeper into each case, he realizes Maddie is at the center of it all. He only wants to protect her, yet she fights him every step of the way. He’ll do anything to keep her safe, including telling her what to do.

Note: This book can be read as a standalone and ends with a happily ever after. However, if you read the epilogue, it will entice you to read book two, Sunset Darkening, which is coming soon.

Love! Gimme some love and heaps of romance. I have a sappy heart that just loves two people meeting, going through the cycles of a relationship, and ultimately, falling in love. Give me a good book like that and I’m a happy camper:)

I write contemporary and romantic suspense, but I am partial to suspense. I just love a good mystery.

Besides writing, I love baking, crafts, and baseball…oh, and meeting new people. *smiles*
