    Melvin Royal stalks me in the brief darkness when I close my eyes. Blink, and he's on the street. Blink, and he's walking up the stairs of the motel to the second floor's open walkway. Blink, and he's outside the door. Listening. Going into Killman Creek - the sequel to Stillhouse Lak...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... This is the second book in the ?Stillhouse Lake? series by Rachel Caine. I really enjoyed the first novel. However, it did end with a cliffhanger which normally would have driven me up the wall. Thankfully ...

    4.5 KILLER STARS ????.5 Wow! What a follow up to Stillhouse Lake..... i?d strongly encourage you to read the first book before you read this, simply because you might be a little lost and the first book is fabulous as well! What would it be like to find out you were ma...

    I'm at 4.5, maybe 4.75 stars here, but I'll round up. After delivering a heart-pounding, stay-up-real-late-to-finish-it thriller with Stillhouse Lake (which was one of the best books I read last year), Rachel Caine returns with Killman Creek , another adrenaline-boosted installme...

    Another solid installment in the series. I?ll admit I was wary to pick this one up at first; I thought Stillhouse Lake worked well as a stand alone novel and was concerned that the ?chasing the bad guy while also on the run? plot would wear thin. However, Killman Creek was everyt...

    4.75 Nerve-Wracking Riveting Stars* (rounded up). In ?Killman Creek? the sequel to ?Stillhouse Lake? Gwen Proctor and her two kids, Lanny, Connor and Sam Cade are back. They survived that harrowing ordeal, barely. Unfortunately, for them, it?s not over. But we knew it woul...

    This has the same format, as another book, I read, recently: multiple first-person perspectives. Now we have: Gwen, Lanny, Connor and Sam's narratives; as opposed to just Gwen's POV - which makes it more interesting. We don't have Melvins' perspective, though. Probably because, it woul...

    Poor Gwen, she just survived some crazy stuff from book one of this series and then there is the fact that she was married to a big old serial killer (and had no clue.) She just wants a calm life with her kids...and she knows that both of them are all kinds of mentally jacked up. But d...

    I'm not going to review this one because of fear of spoilers and I can't talk about this one without spoiling the first one! I loved the first one Stillhouse Lake #1 and not so much this one. I'm in the minority as most liked this one more!! Perhaps this one was too dark for me or t...

    I was back and forth with my review for this book while I was reading it. At times I thought it could even be a 4 and at its worst I thought giving it a 1 might be too generous. Obviously the good outweighed the bad and entertained me enough to give it a solid three. This review wi...

    First, this isn?t a series you read out of order. It has a continuing story arc and this book picks up where the first ends. Nevertheless, I?ll keep this spoiler free. Gwen Proctor has to leave Stillhouse Lake to protect her family from the long arm of a powerful network of onl...

    4.25 stars! Okay, I didn?t think it would be possible to get any better than the first book in the series - Stillhouse Lake - but OH EM GEE, it did! Killman Creek is nothing short of awesome! A super intense, gripping, edge of your seat thriller and a glorious follow up to th...

    3.5 (actual) stars for Killman Creek. I had to round down since I rated Stillhouse Lake 4 stars and I definitely enjoyed that book best. I was really looking forward to Killman Creek . I thoroughly enjoyed Stillhouse Lake and welcomed a 2nd story between the Royals. I might be i...

    I think about that colorful old rug again, a piece of home inside a monster?s den. I can?t decide if that was him trying to still be Dad, or if the monster was all there ever was, and Dad was a mask he wore to mock us. The sequel to Stillhouse Lake picks up twelve days after the ...

    A continuation of the Stillhouse Lake series. In this book Melvin has escaped from prison and is coming after his family. It's different from the first book in that each chapter is seen from the different point of view of four characters, which gives an interesting look into each of th...

    There are monsters walking among us. Sick and evil to the very core, how is it possible they look so normal? They are able to blend all too well. We may be working with them, living in the same neighborhood, or even married to one.The hunted turns into the hunter. No hiding...

    4.5/5 A couple of months ago I read Stillhouse Lake and really enjoyed it and after the way it ended I was dying to get my hands on a copy of Killman Creek. I ended up liking this one even more than the first, it was exciting, tense and the type of page turner that kept me up way pa...

    High-octane non-stop suspense from start to finish from a gifted, professional author. Highly recommended, though only for adults. ...

    "We're not hiding," I tell him. "We're hunting." 4.5 stars! I amso in love with this series.Killman Creek is an incredibly strong follow-up toStillhouse Lake, which was a one-sitting read that reminded me just how much crazy, heart-pounding fun a well written thriller can be. ...

    "Rage is better than fear. Always." Killman Creek is the second installment in Rachel Caine's psychotic thrill ride of a series titled: Stillhouse Lake. This book is a nightmare in a handbag. The story picks up twelve days after the cliffhanger ending of Stillhouse Lake and our her...

    4.5/5 A couple of months ago I read Stillhouse Lake and really enjoyed it and after the way it ended I was dying to get my hands on a copy of Killman Creek. I ended up liking this one even more than the first, it was exciting, tense and the type of page turner that kept me up way pa...

    Another solid installment in the series. I?ll admit I was wary to pick this one up at first; I thought Stillhouse Lake worked well as a stand alone novel and was concerned that the ?chasing the bad guy while also on the run? plot would wear thin. However, Killman Creek was everyt...

    High-octane non-stop suspense from start to finish from a gifted, professional author. Highly recommended, though only for adults. ...

    "We're not hiding," I tell him. "We're hunting." 4.5 stars! I amso in love with this series.Killman Creek is an incredibly strong follow-up toStillhouse Lake, which was a one-sitting read that reminded me just how much crazy, heart-pounding fun a well written thriller can be. ...

    "Rage is better than fear. Always." Killman Creek is the second installment in Rachel Caine's psychotic thrill ride of a series titled: Stillhouse Lake. This book is a nightmare in a handbag. The story picks up twelve days after the cliffhanger ending of Stillhouse Lake and our her...

    A fun read, with some issues that ultimately made it less enjoyable than the first book in the series. If you?ve not read Stillhouse Lake but intend to, you should not read the blurb of Killman Creek and probably should skip my review as well. SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOK are ...

    Melvin Royal stalks me in the brief darkness when I close my eyes. Blink, and he's on the street. Blink, and he's walking up the stairs of the motel to the second floor's open walkway. Blink, and he's outside the door. Listening. Going into Killman Creek - the sequel to Stillhouse Lak...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... This is the second book in the ?Stillhouse Lake? series by Rachel Caine. I really enjoyed the first novel. However, it did end with a cliffhanger which normally would have driven me up the wall. Thankfully ...

    4.5 KILLER STARS ????.5 Wow! What a follow up to Stillhouse Lake..... i?d strongly encourage you to read the first book before you read this, simply because you might be a little lost and the first book is fabulous as well! What would it be like to find out you were ma...

    I'm at 4.5, maybe 4.75 stars here, but I'll round up. After delivering a heart-pounding, stay-up-real-late-to-finish-it thriller with Stillhouse Lake (which was one of the best books I read last year), Rachel Caine returns with Killman Creek , another adrenaline-boosted installme...

    Another solid installment in the series. I?ll admit I was wary to pick this one up at first; I thought Stillhouse Lake worked well as a stand alone novel and was concerned that the ?chasing the bad guy while also on the run? plot would wear thin. However, Killman Creek was everyt...

    4.75 Nerve-Wracking Riveting Stars* (rounded up). In ?Killman Creek? the sequel to ?Stillhouse Lake? Gwen Proctor and her two kids, Lanny, Connor and Sam Cade are back. They survived that harrowing ordeal, barely. Unfortunately, for them, it?s not over. But we knew it woul...

    This has the same format, as another book, I read, recently: multiple first-person perspectives. Now we have: Gwen, Lanny, Connor and Sam's narratives; as opposed to just Gwen's POV - which makes it more interesting. We don't have Melvins' perspective, though. Probably because, it woul...

    Poor Gwen, she just survived some crazy stuff from book one of this series and then there is the fact that she was married to a big old serial killer (and had no clue.) She just wants a calm life with her kids...and she knows that both of them are all kinds of mentally jacked up. But d...

    Gripping, intense & unputdownable! This was an absolutely fabulous follow up to Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine! This wasn?t my first reading experience with this author as I have read all of her Weather Warden Series. So when I seen that she had a thriller genre book out I...

    EXCERPT: ...she's someone's daughter. She's standing on the balls of her feet, straining to keep her balance, because if she relaxes at all, the noose bites into her neck. It's deliberate and cruel and finely calculated, just like the tools hung on pegboard, arrayed in order on the...

    Killman Creek by Rachel Caine is the second book in the Stillhouse Lake series. The first book in the series, Stillhouse Lake, introduced readers to Gwen Proctor who had gone into hiding with her two children after it was found that her husband was a serial killer. The trio had been on...

    I'm not going to review this one because of fear of spoilers and I can't talk about this one without spoiling the first one! I loved the first one Stillhouse Lake #1 and not so much this one. I'm in the minority as most liked this one more!! Perhaps this one was too dark for me or t...

    Warning: this review will obviously contain spoilers for the first book, because this is the sequel. What are you doing here? Go read the first one. Geez. Action-packed but emotional, this is basically the sequel I was expecting after reading the first one. I liked the first book a...

    I was back and forth with my review for this book while I was reading it. At times I thought it could even be a 4 and at its worst I thought giving it a 1 might be too generous. Obviously the good outweighed the bad and entertained me enough to give it a solid three. This review wi...

    Calling all those readers who love thrillers, tense drama, family love, and chills down your spine. This was a book that had it all. The action, the motivation, the characters kept pushing themselves forth in your mind until you felt exactly what it was they were feeling and doing. Whi...

    First, this isn?t a series you read out of order. It has a continuing story arc and this book picks up where the first ends. Nevertheless, I?ll keep this spoiler free. Gwen Proctor has to leave Stillhouse Lake to protect her family from the long arm of a powerful network of onl...

    4.25 stars! Okay, I didn?t think it would be possible to get any better than the first book in the series - Stillhouse Lake - but OH EM GEE, it did! Killman Creek is nothing short of awesome! A super intense, gripping, edge of your seat thriller and a glorious follow up to th...

    3.5 (actual) stars for Killman Creek. I had to round down since I rated Stillhouse Lake 4 stars and I definitely enjoyed that book best. I was really looking forward to Killman Creek . I thoroughly enjoyed Stillhouse Lake and welcomed a 2nd story between the Royals. I might be i...

    I think about that colorful old rug again, a piece of home inside a monster?s den. I can?t decide if that was him trying to still be Dad, or if the monster was all there ever was, and Dad was a mask he wore to mock us. The sequel to Stillhouse Lake picks up twelve days after the ...

    A continuation of the Stillhouse Lake series. In this book Melvin has escaped from prison and is coming after his family. It's different from the first book in that each chapter is seen from the different point of view of four characters, which gives an interesting look into each of th...
