Exposure: Book Review

Exposure by Brandilyn Collins is a new psychological thriller from Zondervan. 

Someone is watching Kaycee Raye. But who will believe her? In Kaycee’s newspaper column she’s known for writing of her paranoia and fears. Is the new danger real—or is she going crazy? In this story of terror, twists, and desperate faith, the startling questions pile high. But Kaycee’s descent to answers proves even more frightening.

When your worst fear comes true. Someone is watching Kaycee Raye. But who will believe her? Everyone knows she’s a little crazy. Kaycee’s popular syndicated newspaper column pokes fun at her own paranoia and multiple fears. The police in her small town are well aware she makes money writing of her experiences. Worse yet, she has no proof of the threats. Pictures of a dead man mysteriously appear in her home—then vanish before police arrive. Multisensory images flood Kaycee’s mind. Where is all this coming from? Maybe she is going over the edge. High action and psychological suspense collide in this story of terror, twists, and desperate faith. The startling questions surrounding Kaycee pile high. Her descent to answers may prove more than she can survive.
I love a good novel, and I kind of like mysteries.  The term "psychological thriller" usually sends me running the other direction. But I decided to go ahead and read Exposure.  It was a great story!  At first, I was a little lost because each chapter seemed to introduce a new major player in the story.  But eventually the pieces came together.  And, I did not see the ending coming! Brandilyn wove a great story with twists and turns that surprised me.

The main theme of the book was overcoming fears.  But the story went deeper than just fear: the consequences of choices; the long lasting effects of sin; and the way the mind works.

I really enjoyed reading this book.  This may have been my first Brandilyn Collins book, but it definitely won't be my last!
