I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge, and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews.
My 21st review is of Sink or Swim - an intriguing suspense...
About Sink or Swim
Ambitious personal trainer Cassidy Novak has gained national fame for starring on Sink or Swim, nicknamed SOS, a hit game show set aboard a Tall Ship. She hopes the prize money will help to launch her dream of owning a chain of fitness centers. Not only does she lose the competition and have to walk the plank in the finale, after the game show ends, the terror begins. Upon returning to her small Massachusetts hometown, Cassidy discovers she has attracted a stalker masterminding his own twisted game. She struggles to focus on her health club job and celebrity endorsement opportunities, but her stalker has other plans. As her former competitors get knocked off one-by-one, Cassidy refuses to play by his bizarre rules. She's also being shadowed by hunky photographer Zach Gallagher, who has been assigned to capture her personal moments for a spread in the local newspaper. She wants to trust Zach, but fears he may not be the nice guy that he seems. With or without Zach's help, when the stalker forces a showdown by threatening her family, Cassidy must once again walk the plank - this time for her life
When Cassidy appears on reality TV show Sink or Swim, she attracts more than fame...she now has a love-sick stalker!
Stacy does a fab job of letting the reader get inside Cassidy's head and feel her increasing worry about someone following her every move. Pretty soon she's struggling to know who to trust, and as it starts to affect her life she takes matters in to her own hands to flush our the stalker. Sink or Swim was an intriguing suspenseful mystery with a smidgen of romance thrown into the mix. It will keep you guessing until the end.
