After thirty years of marriage, Rachel observes herself amid a matrimonial nightmare. While at first, she sought to write off Seth’s nighttime escapades and drinking as a midlife crisis. The local sheriff hands her a foreclosure notice because her mortgage hasn’t been paid. Rachel perceives something is awry.
Devastated and needing space to reflect, Rachel accepts a respite from her best friend Lauren to hang at her cabin in the Allegheny Mountains for Thanksgiving, where she reconnects with Lauren, and her family.
When Rachel tries to understand Seth’s change of heart, the schemes of her husband, mother-in-law, and the entire Blackstone crew. The family she married into became an illusion.
As her thirty-year marriage dissolves, Rachel realizes that getting into the Blackstone family is one thing, but getting out alive is another.
Desperate to get off of this roller-coaster ride without shattering, Rachel must figure out the shrewdest way to pull herself up out of this turbulent charade.
Can she stay alive through the worst episodes that marred her down to her knees?
If you like a thriller with a little romance thrown in, you will love The Hunt by Jacqueline Terrill. I read The Hunt in under 24 hours. It was about 220 pages which is a short book but, with the interruptions of a husband and two dogs that was pretty good. I read until I couldn’t hold my eyes open any longer and still could not go to sleep because I was trying to figure out what was going to happen to the main character. I figured Jacqueline would not wrap this book up as easily as I thought she might and I was right! She threw some things into the end of the story that I did not see coming. I was totally entertained by The Hunt.
The first chapter threw me off a bit and If you read this book I will advise you to keep going. The second chapter is better and that is where you will get hooked. Her writing is not as smooth as it could be making the flow a little rough sometimes. The story line more than makes up for the little blips. Jacqueline really did an outstanding job on her plot. I look forward to reading more from Jacqueline Terrill. You will too!
I am giving The Hunt 4 stars because I was so thoroughly entertained. Thank you Jacqueline Terrill for a good book. Keep up the good work!
I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
