Présentation de l'éditeur

Readers Choice Award/Best Mystery
In a remote mountain community, the execution of a grocer and the abduction of a world-renowned model leave the local sheriff searching for a connection, two killers and a woman who is running for her life. In the next 48 hours, Sheriff Dove Connelly will peel back the layers of intrigue beneath the tranquil camaraderie of his mountain enclave and find that nothing is what it seems.
______________________

As Dove sets his investigation in motion, Tessa Bradley, a hard assed Texas gal, faces off with her abductors. Her rangy beauty doesn’t mean a damn thing to the foreign men holding her at gunpoint. Just as one of them pulls the trigger, Tessa lashes out. Wounded but alive, she escapes her captors only to find greater peril lies ahead. As her life flashes before her eyes, Tessa struggles to stay alive, prays for rescue and fights for her soul's salvation.

I marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym and did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall. Then I wrote a book on a crazy dare and found my passion.Now, I am a USA Today best selling author with more than 25 books to my name

I love thrillers, women in jeopardy, the law, cops and the human condition. HOSTILE WITNESS is the first in a series, featuring my beach-rat, volleyball playing attorney Josie Bates and her teenage ward, Hannah, have really captured readers' imaginations. But I also like to stretch the thirller genre a bit. BEFORE HER EYES, for instance, has a fantasy overlay on a murder mystery that I really found intriguing. KEEPING COUNSEL features the sexiest of villains

I teach at UCLA Writers Program and work with The Young Writers Conference, a program that helps motivate middle school children to explore the power of words. I think I am particularly drawn to kids and writing because both my sons have always had a passion for it. Eric is a playwright and Alex is in film. I am married to a superior court judge who is an endless source of inspiration.

When I'm not writing I'm traveling, on a tennis court, working a sewing machine, or reading. Thank you so much for taking a look at my author page. You can find out more about me - and leave me a note - at http://www.rebeccaforster.com

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought provoking - a must read! 25 septembre 2010
Par Debra L. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com

"Before Her Eyes" is not usually the kind of book I read, but I agreed to review this book as a nice break from the usual fantasy and science fiction books I review. I thought it would be a quick and easy read of solving a murder mystery in a small town, but I was wrong. This book is so much more than that and made me do a lot of thinking about how we all judge people based on our own perceptions and biases of who we think they are when we look at them.

The story revolves around Sherriff Dove Connelly, a good moral stand-up kind of guy who battles his own inner demons while trying to solve the murder of his friend, Fritz, the local store owner, and the kidnapping of Tessa Bradley, a local socialite, from the scene of the crime. Throughout the investigation that covers 48 hours, everything that Dove thought he knew about the people of his mountain enclave is challenged, warped and then twisted back into a new slot. Even Dove himself must undergo this torturous journey if he ever wants to have peace and happiness with his wife and child.

The author lets the story unfold through two viewpoints - third person to follow Dove and the investigation and first person for Tessa Bradley. It is Tessa's voice that draws you in, haunts you, makes you listen to her, and leaves you a shadow of former yourself when she's done with you. Her beauty blinds all who see her, but no one really sees her, no one really knows her, all except for one, and he's never met her before. Dove is determined to find Tessa not because she's a beautiful woman, but because she is a woman in need and that's his job.

This book makes you think and I like that. I highly recommend it, but make sure you carve out the time to read it because once you start, you won't want to put it down until the last word is read.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Nothing boring about this book. Starts of by grabbing the reader's attention and continues to hold it throughout. At first, I was disappointed with how it ended but I quickly got over that. I won't get into why lest I give the ending away.

Starts off with Dove, the sheriff getting a phone call in the middle of the night. A man is dead. A beautiful woman who was a model in an earlier time, goes missing. Dove's friend's wife is dying of cancer. Things are happening but leaving the reader with no hint as to what it has to do with, driving curiosity up. Later in the book events start happening at a fast pace, keeping the reader glued to the pages.

We have had a really good run here at the Dual Review site in these last few months, receiving some rather interesting book submissions. Rebecca Forster, you did not disappoint! Oh my, since I do not `cheat' and read the blurbs about what a book is about, I stepped into the world of Dove Connelly on his mountain, and took the ride of my life.

This story is heard in different POV's and begins with The Phone Call from the Police Dispatcher Jessica, calling Dove Connelly the Sheriff, alerting him to a heinous crime at Fritz's Mountain Store. It encompasses a few days in the lives of these people, who we meet one by one in individual chapters both in real time and in the past, telling their story through a timeline of events. It was a very clever way of relating this mystery.

So now you have met tall, handsome alpha, Dove Connelly, married to Cherie, having a beautiful baby daughter, and you sense right away that there is something `more' that we do not know. The call from Jessica has alerted Dove to leave his warm bed and go to Fritz's Mountain Store where Fritz, his best friend on the mountain, has been killed.

We also meet the beautiful Tessa Bradley, who through reading her words, looks like person or persons who have hurt Fritz have kidnapped her from the mountain store and have taken her captive. They have her bound in their vehicle for a while, and finally stop in the forest, pulling Tessa out into the night air. Tessa fights back and uses her car key as a weapon, thrusting it into the eye socket of one of her captors and rendering him helpless. This allows her to get away, running through the woods not knowing where she is. Fearing for her life and desperately cold, she flees. Now the story begins:

Fritz's Mountain Store

2:58 a.m.

The information gives us a two fold story, a murder and abduction, which are two separate crimes, but could they be connected? Many other characters come into play. Fritz's wife Bernadette, Jake Bradley, Tessa's husband, Charlotte, Tessa's daughter, and police officers involved in solving Fritz's murder, both in this town and the next.

Dove is following clues, zig zagging back and forth between the mountain store, Tessa's beautiful home, and having search parties out looking for her. We are following her progress through this time table as well with her being lost in the woods; at the mercy of the elements, the cold, the snow and the rain ...

Rebecca Forster has woven a tightly knit mystery thriller with all the right components. A heinous crime, a beautiful rich woman missing, and the core of Dove Connelly needing to find the answers. Dove's tenacity and perseverance are what leads the reader to an astounding ending, with twists and turns and surprises... It had me going until the end, turning pages frantically to see the final words. I cannot say enough for this story, it is a must read if you are a mystery lover. Remember my words... the end has a gotcha...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting mystery 16 juillet 2011
Par DecaturMamaofTwo - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the first book of Rebecca Foster's that I have read. It has a good beginning - the reader is immediately inserted into the action of the story. I really wanted to like this book, as its characters (a small-town sheriff, his wife and child; a famous model, now retired; other local characters) seemed very interesting. The story was a good mystery (I did not figure out the "whodunnit" part) and also included an element of fantasy / supernatural which added a nice twist to the tale.

However much I really wanted to love this book there were some things which were annoying: One - the lack of copy-editing drove me nuts! There were many instances of missing letters in words, of misspellings ("heroine" instead of "heroin" when refering to the drug), and the like. Secondly, it seemed as if there were pages missing from the story. I guess I'd have liked the tale to be much more fleshed-out than it was. If I care about a character, I want to know more about him/her. With all of the main characters in this tale (especially Dove and Tessa) I got the sense of having 'missed' a prior book. There was information revealed, but many details which would have been interesting, were not given.

I did receive this copy as a complimentary review copy, and am glad I had the opportunity to discover Foster's work. Her ideas are definitely original and interesting. I look forward to reading more - if possible - about the main character (Dove) of this story!
