Romantic suspense abounds in this gripping new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown, in which a successful magazine editor is trapped in her remote cabin with a man believed to be a serial killer.

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town—the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there’s always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary’s chief of police. Dutch’s reluctance to let her go isn’t Lilly’s only obstacle. As she’s trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man who emerges from the woods on foot. She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she’d met the previous summer. They’re forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn’t the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her.

Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her?

The compelling characters, sexual tension, and stunning plot twists in Sandra Brown’s Chill Factor combine to create a page-turner that will keep readers guessing until the very end.

    Great read!! Read Mean Streak first, so maybe that's why I like it better. But both are great weekend reads for any romantic.

    The author inserted sex into a plot when it made no sense and actually made you question the intelligence of the lead female character. This book was ridiculous.
  • Suspenseful

    This was a great book! It kept you wanting to read more. The mystery isn't solved until the end, but the book is very entertaining throughout.
  • Great read!

    This book was awesome. The character setting similar to Lethal, you never know who is the bad guys and the good guys. But beaware, you are in capable hands with ms. Brown. The story starts out with a clear deception to the reader and doesn't reveal who is who until mid-way into the novel. Throughout the entire novel, however, the plot and story makes it very difficult to put down. This novel is the type where you are glad that it greets you in the morning to have something interesting to read and be engrossed in. Must have for those who need a read that is worth it's money and time. Buy it, you will love it!
