    1. 4 starsAnother great novel by Sandra Brown.This book combines two elements that I love: trapped-in-a-blizzard romance and a small town mystery.Love, love cabin romances. There’s something magical about them. On the one hand, they give me that cozy feeling of being indoors cuddled under the duvet while it snows outside. On the other hand, I love the tension and the slow build-up of the romantic relationship in a confined space (without technology, ow/om drama, manwhoring habits and other clich [...]

    2. 4.5 I was so confused stars.Sandra Browns writing never fails to lure me into the story. With equal doses of suspense and mystery she also has the ability to weave in a certain level of sex appeal in way that creates anticipation and when the moments happen….Let me start by saying this one drove me a little batty. It was fantastic of course but for the first 60% or so my thoughts were spinning in so many different directions that I my little brain was about to explode. Where to begin with this [...]

    3. 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. Lilly Martin, a successful magazine editor is trapped in her remote cabin with a man believed to be a serial killer. Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to beher rescuer from h [...]

    4. Seems I have broken my audio drought, as wholeheartedly the two main characters with very cool names - Lilly and Tierney - survived their blizzard and crazy circumstances. This romantic thriller (what a great combo this is) was good, perhaps a tad drawn out, but good none the less.Awesome narration. Was his voice as sexy as Tierney was built up to be?! Perhaps. But such a good voice to spend some hours with on my work commute. I feel at home with this author, she will deliver. It was too long, b [...]

    5. Reviewed at: Cross My Heart Writings and ReviewsLike most Sandra Brown books, Chill Factor is high on suspense and rich in details with a setting that plays intricately into the story.  The list of possible “who-done-it” candidates is laden with red herrings and the stakes are high.  Like the road that snakes up the mountainside where Lilly Martin finds herself stranded in a cabin during a blizzard, the plot is twisted with s-turns and roadblocks.  If only she had headed down right behind [...]

    6. Holy crap on a cracker! Ms. Brown can definitely spin a tale. As many books as I have read by her, I am always amazed at her writings. She blew my mind again with this novel. I just knew who the culprit was but I was wrongover and over again! So many little mysteries inside one big mystery. I loved this book! If you are a true fan of SB, and have never read this one, then grab a copy and enjoy! .

    7. Review written April 25, 20164 1/2 Stars - Thrilling good romantic (snowy) crimeI haven't listened to a Sandra Brown story since August. (Months flies!) Gosh, I have been missing her always so very enjoying romantic crime stories. — This time (my tenth) is it Chill Factor. First published 2005, here the 13:26 hrs audiobook (excellent) narrated by Stephen Langd I'm breathless.*******************************************«4 women have disappeared from Cleary over the past 2 years. — e greatest [...]

    8. 5 Chilling Stars!!Sandra Brown is one of my top "go-to" author's when I'm in the mood for a great mystery suspense that will keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat, and SB manages to add just the right amount of romance to keep the characters connected and the reader enthralled.In the town of Cleary in North Carolina, four women are missing, and presumed dead. The town has a serial killer (The Blue Ribbon Killer) on the loose, and as the story unfolds, as usual with a SB novel there are sev [...]

    9. 5 STARS[image error] "Torrie Lambert vanished as though the ground had opened up and swallowed her. Not a trace of her has been found except for a blue velvet ribbon."WOW!!!! Loved this one!!!A classic who-done-it psychological thriller with a bit of romance mixed in. This one kept me on the edge of my seat… and the build up had me suspecting EVERYONE. Fabulous writing. [image error]The town was Cleary, located in the remote mountains of North Carolina. And it was about to experience the winte [...]

    10. WOW!! That ending!! Just when I thought I figured it out, BOOM another twist, another suspicious person, another important fact!It all starts with Lilly & Tierney trapped by a record breaking storm, is he a serial killer or her fresh start in a new life? THIS BOOK is THRILLER/ROMANCE at its best!! Loved the setting, the descriptive writing, attention to details and it read just like a movie! Definitely a re-read for me.

    11. I had trouble finishing this and when it's about a suspense story, that means a lot. Plus, the romance part was too weak and unsatisfying IMHO.Lilly is somehow stranded in an isolated mountain cabin, along with Ben Tierney, a man she's met some months ago and liked. However, women have been disappearing lately in their quiet town and somehow, the more time she spends with him, the more she becomes convinced he's the culprit. Her ex-husband, the town's chief of police, freaks out when he learns t [...]

    12. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    13. North Carolina woods, painted by Jeremy SamsKayaking on the French Broad River in North Carolina into Tennessee.★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Good Gravy Beans! I haven’t read a Sandra Brown book in ages, but this one took hold of me and wouldn’t let go. Stephen Lang does an excellent reading of this romantic suspense. I’ve heard him narrate before, though it’s has been awhile; he still holds up.I have to thank Jill (who knows I love a good snowbound story) for the r [...]

    14. This is a book one should read during summer! LOLApart from freezing feelings it transmits, due to a great descriptions, the book is very, very interesting and until the very end you are not sure who the culprit is!The MCs are secluded in a cabin without light, water or heating. Lilly has a ton of suspitions about Tierney being a serial killer. Tierney, on the other hand, hides a lot. So, their co-habitation is full of tension and suspitions. Nothing much happens, all is in the athmosphere!In th [...]

    15. Overall rating: 4.75 stars!Triggers:Cheating: (view spoiler)[ Not between the hero and heroine, but of course, the heroine's ex husband is a piece of work. Definitely cheated on her a bunch.(hide spoiler)]Love triangle: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Sex with om/ow: (view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Intimate pasts: (view spoiler)[ I really don't know but based on inner thoughts and conversations I'll have to guess my take on this.

    16. Listened to this book on the drive to and from SC at Thanksgiving. It was a way to fill up the long and empty miles, but as a piece of "literachoor" - it was an enormous piece of feculent nonsense.Where to start? How about the part where Lily, the heroine, convinced she is snowed in with a serial kidnapper/murderer, has hot monkey sex with him, despite the whole HE'S A FREAKIN' MURDERER thing.Or how about the fact that the hot, monkey sex happens between a woman who is weak from a nearly-fatal a [...]

    17. After reading almost everything Mrs. Sandra Brown had ever written, I still cannot guess who the killer is. Pretty impressive, Mrs. Agatha Christie would be so proud.

    18. A gripping tale with many twists and turnshard to put down. Thoroughly enjoyable readSandra Brown raises suspense to startling new heights in this fast-paced thriller!

    19. I hated this book. By the time I realized it wasn't going to get better I was pretty well done it so I continued. I didn't know it was possible to write a book where the reader hates every single character. There wasn't one that I cared for at all. Maybe there could have been but the story wasn't really about them so they were insignificant. I'm sorry the LAST thing I would be doing if I am stuck in a blizzard, in a cabin with no heat/hydro etc would be to worry about taking a sponge bath and pr [...]

    20. I am a big fan of Sandra Brown. I don’t even glance at blurbs before requesting her books. To this moment I’ve read 34 of her novels. To my shame I haven’t written a single review on any of them. I just… I thought that everyone knows about Sandra Brown and either like her books or not. So I was really surprised when I realized that several of my GR friends haven’t read her novels and only now they begin to discover this author. Now I’m going to write reviews on Sandra Browns books be [...]

    21. I decided on reading this book for my Month of Mystery TBR for August. I had heard that her books are standalone books and I had been collecting quite a few, so it was time to start reading some of her works since I had so many. I am glad that I read it.SynopsisFive women are missing from the sleepy mountain town of Cleary, North Carolina, and a blue ribbon has been left near where each woman was last seen. Lilly Martin has returned to Cleary to close the sale of her cabin. But when her car skid [...]

    22. In Cleary, North Carolina a small mountain town, five women have disappeared, assumed to be the work of a serial killer. The town is full of interesting characters: the local pharmacist and his spinster sister still live together in their parents house; the head football coach is a notorious skirt-chaser, and his son was dating one of the missing girls; the police chief has returned to his old hometown in disgrace after being fired from his job in the big city; his ex-wife, Lilly, is suffering f [...]

    23. I've only read one Sandra Brown book in the past, Lethal, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I was excited to try another one. Unfortunately for me, I picked this one. Wow. What a giant disappointment. It would take me ages to detail the many, many things I hated about this story and frankly, I've lost enough of my life to this terrible book already, so I'll just list the general problems: completely cliche, unrealistic, TSTL characters doing the most ignorant things imaginable with no logical expla [...]

    24. حين تحتجز ليلى مارتين وسط عاصفة ثلجية مع بين تيرني تدور في البلدة حيث زوجها السابق هو رئيس الشرطة مجموعة من الشائعات والتكنهات حول كون بين تيرني هو القاتل المتسلسل والمتهم باختطاف خمس نساء خلال عامين في تلك البلدة الصغيرة حيث الأسرار والشخصيات المريضة المتخفية خلف ستار الإ [...]

    25. Adorei este livro! Mal conseguia deixar de ler, tal era a vontade que tinha de chegar ao fim e deslindar o mistério de saber quem era o mau da fita. E tenho de confessar que tinha várias suspeitas mas não imaginava que era aquela personagem. Fui surpreendida e isso é algo que eu adoro, quando um livro me surpreende. Mais uma vez fiquei com vontade de ler todos os livros desta escritora e recomendo a toda a gente de goste de policiais com um toque de romance.

    26. There is no doubt that Sandra Brown can write and she does mystery thrillers best. This is one that held me glued to the pages and there are quite a few pages at that. Not a boring moment in sight.

    27. This one make me want lay in bed and read all dayyy!!Absolutely unputdownable!! This book kept me on the edge of my seat, and i really scream at some point tought

    28. Depois de estar muito tempo na estante, resolvi pegar neste livro e ver se iria concordar com as muitas opiniões positivas sobre ele. As primeiras páginas do livro são chocantes e explícitas, o que me deixou a pensar que, uma vez que o assassino já estaria identificado, a surpresa maior que este livro poderia oferecer-me já estaria perdida. Como me enganeiO enredo praticamente está todo na sinopse, mas se eu pensava que isto era um contra, vejo agora que era apenas para me iludir e engana [...]

    29. Whilst not one of Sandra Brown's BEST books (in my opinion), I do think this one features higher than others. The main issue I had with it, is that there was just too many things going on - so many different side stories that, yes, work together in the end, but I just wanted the main story to be focused on the stranded couple - and how they were surviving. I read Dark Horse by Honey Brown straight after this book and while the basic plot lines are so similar (2 people stranded in a cabin by extr [...]

    30. قصة حب وجريمة ولغز. هذا هو النوع المفضل عندي من الروايات. لا يوجد ابتذال ولا سخافة في إنفاق الصفحات لسرد موقف جنسي بألفاظ مقززة كما أصبحت العادة عند الكتاب العرب مؤخرا، وكأن القارئ العربي بهيمة تفكر طيلة وقتها في عملية التكاثر ولن تشتري الكتاب ما لم يكن هنالك صفحات في الرواية [...]
