Murder at Sunrise Lake by Christine Feehan

A killer is out there... And Stella knows that this time, she’ll do whatever it takes to stop him.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan reaches new heights of passion and suspense in this thrilling novel that takes readers deep into the California backcountry, where a woman is tormented by visions of a killer.

It starts in her dreams. Hideous flashes from a nightmare only she can stop. Images of a murderer stalking the ones she cares about most…

Stella Harrison thought she got away from the traumas of her past. Running the Sunrise Lake resort high in the Sierra Nevada mountains has brought her peace, even though she doesn’t truly share her quiet life with anyone. Not even Sam, the hired handyman that notices everything and always seems to know exactly what she needs.

Stella doesn’t know anything about Sam’s past, but somehow over the last two years his slow, steady presence has slipped past her defenses. Still, she knows she can’t tell him about her recent premonitions. So far there’s been no murder. No body. No way to prove what’s about to happen without destroying the life she’s built for herself.

But a killer is out there. And Stella knows that this time she’ll do whatever it takes to stop him.

I’m a big fan of the romantic suspense genre and I love the chase for a serial killer and Murder at Sunrise Lake offered me something I hadn’t read before. Stella, our heroine, dreams about the murders before they happen. So rather than following the police in an investigation, we follow Stella who, with the assistance of her handyman/lover, tries to work out who is going to be killed as well as who the killer is. I quite liked this and the way in which the killings were done was clever. I did find, however, that over time, the constant repetitive scenes of what happens after Stella had a dream got a little annoying.

Stella’s romance with Sam is pretty hot. He is quiet, strong, and good looking and is a dangerous man. I love the way he treats Stella and takes care of her. Their chemistry is great, but I was disappointed when the steamy scenes faded to black.

Stella lives in a lovely town and has a great group of friends that we get to know, and I got the feeling we might get stories for each of them in the future. I’d be happy to see each of her girlfriends find some happiness. We got little bits of their stories and I want more. There were times, however, where the story was focused on her friends, and I was wanting to get back to the serial killer.

So there were some things that annoyed me about this story but others I really liked. Overall, I thought the romance between Sam and Stella was great, and the suspense and action scenes were really well done. This is a solid three-star read for me.

  1. I've just finished this and really enjoyed it. Personally I'm glad the sex scenes faded to Black. Normally I wouldn't, but Christine Feehan's sex scenes are somewhat boring. Other's mileage may differ
