Fallout by Carrie Stuart Parks


Her carefully crafted life is about to be demolished.

After a difficult childhood, Samantha Williams craves simplicity: jigsaw puzzles, lectures at the library, and the students she adores in her role as an elementary school art teacher in the dusty farming community of LaCrosse, Washington.

But when an SUV crashes into the building where she teaches, her entire world is upended. Samantha manages to keep the children safe, but her car isn’t so lucky. Oddly, her purse—with her driver’s license, credit cards, and other identification—is missing from the wreckage.

After authorities discover that the driver in the accident was shot seconds before the crash, Samantha quickly becomes entangled in increasingly strange events that have her constantly looking over her shoulder.

Samantha has long tried to forget the tragedy of her past, but the twisting connections she discovers between the murdered driver, a deadly secret government project, and an abandoned town can't be ignored. Those involved are determined to keep these secrets buried, and they’ll use any means necessary to stop Samantha’s search for truth.

My Review


This read starts and ends with action, first a car rams a school building, and ends with gun shots, what is going on, and will answers come soon enough?

This author is a master at writing action packed suspense, and this one did not disappoint! You begin to wonder why a young woman, orphaned as a young child and now working as a teacher is being targeted?

As the cast of characters grows you wonder whom is involved, and my mind guessed, but was I right? I kept page turning as more and more danger roared it's head. The reason is very deep, and very scary, and yet, it sure felt very real!

I have read several of this author's books, and this sure won't be the last! Great read!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give positive review.
