When you enter the bookstore and start searching for your next read what are you looking for? Do you want a simplistic story with a happy ever after ending, do you want a cold hearted killer, or perhaps you want page turning suspense with some romance thrown in, so that in the end those who have been tormented can finally have a happy ever after of their own?
The book you’re searching for could very well be Triple Exposure by Colleen Thompson. Triple Exposure is the story of Rachel Copeland who has fled Philadelphia after having been acquitted in the murder of Kyle Underwood. Since the end of the trial a mysterious female caller, whom she believes is Kyle’s mother, has stalked Rachel. In an attempt to put her troubles firmly behind her Rachel returns home to Marfa, Texas.
Rachel believes things might be looking up when she is asked to take photos for a festival to promote local artisans. One of the pictures she takes is of Zeke Pike a loner who makes beautiful furniture out of brush he finds in and around Marfa. What neither realizes is that the simple act of picture taking will impact both their lives, and not necessarily for the best.
Zeke, readers soon find out, has come to Marfa to hide from his dubious past. As the lives of Rachel and Zeke begin to intertwine, the danger to not only themselves but also possibly their families, begins to escalate.
With Triple Exposure Ms. Thompson has taken several storylines that cross many years, and woven them into one suspenseful tale. Readers will be unable to put Triple Exposure down until the last page has been turned.
Triple Exposure was my first read by Ms. Thompson, but luckily for me I have some of her backlist in my TBR. I am assured of a good suspenseful read, with characters that I will come to love, and plot twists that I will be unable to foresee. When wanting a suspenseful storyline who could ask for more than that?
