#ThrowbackThursday ~ Wake-Robin Ridge by @MarciaMeara #Mystery set in the North Carolina Mountains

What a happy way to start my day! Cathy at Between the Lines has chosen Wake-Robin Ridge as her Throwback Thursday review post, and what a super review it is, too! Please stop by and see what Cathy thought about my first Wake-Robin Ridge book. (My first book, period, as a matter of fact.) I’m feeling extra inspired today after reading it, and am hard at work on Wake-Robin Ridge #4: The Light. Hope you’ll enjoy checking this out (be sure to say hi to Cathy while there), and please share all over the place, if you can. Both Cathy and I would appreciate that! Thanks, and my heartfelt thanks to Cathy for starting my day off on such a high note! πŸ™‚ ❀

My Throwback Thursday choice is the first of the Wake-Robin Ridge trilogy, a dual time line story with flashbacks to fifty years previously. I’ve read all three books and loved them.


My thoughts

Two women, two stories, fifty years apart, their lives connecting in a terrifying way. Ruth and Frank met in the 1960s when Ruth escaped from an abusive husband and settled in a little cabin on Wake-Robin Ridge. Ruth thought she was safe and could at last find happiness when she met Frank, but it wasn’t that easy to remove Lloyd from her life. Her husband, Lloyd Carter, himself an abused child which shaped him into the man he was to become, had been imprisoned for multiple charges, including assault with the intent to kill. Ruth took her chance and made the break for freedom, taking Lloyd’s money and car. From prison, Lloyd employed his cousin to…

    • OH, wow! So glad you enjoyed Swamp Ghosts, Joan! It was a story I had a LOT of fun writing, since it’s set right here in my world, and largely on and around “my” river! πŸ˜€ And it’s filled with loads of the animals and habitat I love. And oh yeah, some creepy sorts of people, too. πŸ˜€ Can’t believe you read it in one day. (I’m notoriously wordy, if you haven’t figured that out, and it’s pretty long.)

      Thanks for stopping by to see Cathy. I’m stoked about this Throwback Thursday review this morning. πŸ™‚ ❀

    • It’s the kind of thing that makes it ALL worth while, isn’t it? πŸ˜€ Thanks, Darlene! And Amanda in Spain will be reaching my grandson on Saturday, so says Amazon. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to hear what they think. πŸ˜€

      • Isn’t it fun to send books to our grandchildren, even if it’s not a birthday or special occasion? I do it all the time from Spain. (via Amazon). It is a nice surprise for them and they know I’m thinking about them. Thanks for choosing an Amanda book.xo

        • I’m glad I finally remembered to send it. I really think he’ll love it. πŸ˜€ ❀ And yes, surprising them is fun. He's getting a "Happy New Home State" present, since they just moved to Colorado. πŸ˜€

  1. I love all three of the Wake-Robin Ridge books. This book is a fantastic start and then, in my opinion, they buck the trend of sequels and get even better! Had a hectic two days and so this response is a tad slow, but the sentiments are honest! ❀

    • Aw, thanks so much, Trish! I’m SO glad you feel that way about the WRR books. They are near and dear to my heart, being so connected to the North Carolina mountains, and of course, once Rabbit appeared on the scene, they moved into my head forever! πŸ˜€

      Hope the “hectic”part of your last two days had been good stuff and not bad! Sending positive thoughts your way! πŸ™‚ ❀
