    Shudder Comment

    1. In general, I try to avoid religious fiction, regardless of the religion This book pretty well reaffirmed why I do that It came across as preachy and at times, self righteous I really wish the author had left out the religious part I recognize that it s a big part of her life, especially as I share the same religion and am very active in my church I just think that in this case, the story would have been better served to leave it out.I also didn t really connect with the action going on It just [...]

    2. I don t know why I keep reading these books I shout at the author every time Her stories are great, but she has trouble telling them in any kind of event sequence How do you get from I like spending time with you to will you marry me How about a first kiss, or an I really like you, or I love you, or SOMETHING Way too jumpy with way too much happening behind the scenes that we are left struggling to figure out Very accurate portrayal of abused spouses However difficult to believe, it s exactly th [...]

    3. Genre LDS fiction suspense This book tells the story of Darcy, a young woman who is watching her best friend, Clare, fall in love with a manipulator and abuser Clare won t listen to reason and Darcy has to helplessly watch her friend pull away from their friendship and really lose herself in the dysfunctional relationship That made it a sad read, but Darcy has her head on straight, so her story is much hopeful I could predict much of what happened, but still enjoyed the ride, so I gave it 3 sta [...]

    4. LDS modern fiction Not that suspenseful.Overall, it was a good story It dealt with a lot of serious issues that I haven t had experience with so I feel out of my element rating the accuracy of motivations and so forth The story takes place over a long period of time and sometimes the jumps were awkward, the progression was odd and I felt disoriented.Loose ends all get tied up but the ending was a bit unsatisfying Justice was not served Unfortunately, that is how life is sometimes.So, this was de [...]

    5. Not my favorite Jennie Hansen book I just love Code Red but it was still a good book I think it would be so difficult to watch your friend make the mistake of marrying dating someone that was abusing them I have never seen this and it would be so hard to not just step in and do something I admired how Darcy allowed Clare to make her own decisions, but firmly told her that she was making a mistake And then being there to help pick up the pieces after She was a true friend As a side note, I don t [...]

    6. The message of this LDS novel depicts the horrors of abusive, controlling husbands and illustrates how easy it is to fall into that trap and how hard to get out And surrounding that main theme is a murder mystery, a romance, and lots of action Most of the characters are a little too good or too bad to be true, but the action was fast enough and interesting enough to make the book enjoyable to read Not exactly a light read given the horrors of spousal abuse, but light in that it s not too demandi [...]

    7. I had a hard time putting this one down And since I now work, I cannot read late into the night like I use to I think this is one Jennie s best And I love all her books.

    8. I m not sure how to feel about this book It was emotionally raw and powerful, suspenseful, and surprising, yet I felt like it also lacked clarity and a good ending I loved the relationship between Darcy and Clare, who are two lifetime best friends and the main characters of the story The girls are roommates living together in Boise when Clare gets a unlikeable boyfriend who pushes the limits of the two girl s friendship This boy drives Darcy away from Clare when she is needed most The strength o [...]

    9. In my case, the test of a book s appeal can easily be determined by one look at its post read appearance I rarely have the time to sit down and do a straight read through, oh, the heaven of such an indulgence So if I really get into a story, I stuff the novel into my purse and drag it around everywhere I go, stealing reading moments anytime and any place possible.My copy of Shudder is a a sad sight I thoroughly enjoyed this book.The quality of the read is no surprise Jennie Hansen is a prolific [...]

    10. Jennie Hansen is a prolific and much admired LDS author, and reading Shudder it s easy to see why The style is smooth and easy to read no flowery prose, detailed description or complex metaphors and should appeal to all ages, especially young adult Jennie addresses an important subject in this novel, that of domestic violence, and neatly ties it in to the main action and intrigue Even so, it doesn t seem like an afterthought and is, in fact, the most powerful part of the book Despite some grippi [...]

    11. Great book about the blinders that loves sometimes puts on our eyes when abuse is happening Clare is a quiet, ready to please, orphan since her parents both have died and she has been taken in by her best friend, Darcy and her family When they set off to Boise after graduating college, they think their adventure is just starting Clare has a great job she loves and a boyfriend and Darcy has a job that supports her barely to get her teaching certificate and pay the bills What Clare doesn t realize [...]

    12. It was the cover and title that first caught my eye Of course I picked it up to read the description on the back The second thing that jumped out at me was that the story takes place in Boise, Idaho I know most people would say who cares, but I m from southern Idaho about 2 hours from Boise , and this really got me I was happy to see it on the shelf at the library, so I picked it up Now comes the trouble of reviewing it I liked it, but I can guarantee that it is not for everybody The main proble [...]

    13. This is pretty serious subject matter abusive boyfriends husbands I was drawn in by the situation Clare finds herself in and saddened by how long it takes her to ask for help I was disappointed with the inconsistencies in this story 1 David grew up on a farm and went to Ricks for 1 year before his mission early in the book, then later he says his family moved to a farm after he graduated and he went to Boise State for 2 years before his mission 2 Evan wants Darcy and Karlene to wait inside the c [...]

    14. So basically the only thing about this book that I liked was the plot line I felt that the religion aspect was pushed too much and the main character seemed extremely self righteous throughout the book Also something that bugged me was how Blaine, the bad guy, was described and how his character developed Usually in cases with domestic violence the perpetrator starts out super charming and there isn t a whole lot to tell that they are that kind of person, that being said there will be some big r [...]

    15. Darcy and Clare grew up as best friends, sharing trials and triumphs from preschool through college graduation Now they re sharing an apartment in Boise, Idaho, where Clare just landed a great job and Darcy is pursuing a teaching certificate There s only one problem Blaine, Clare s boyfriend His chauvinistic, know it all ways set Darcy s teeth on edge Darcy vows not to let Blaine ruin her lifelong friendship with Clare, but when Blaine insists on moving in, Darcy suddenly finds herself alone The [...]

    16. Wow This one brought out the woman activist in me I ve never been okay with domestic abuse or abuse in general I always feel disappointed to read of women in these situations I realize that women tell themselves that they won t be victims, but the reality is that it still happens to the best of them The important part is to get help as soon as possible It makes me crazy to think that women excuse these violent acts as love reality check it s not I m happy that this victim had a loyal friend that [...]

    17. This story deals with two young women and the men they meet and love It deals with spouse abuse My daughter couldn t believe that a woman would be that dumb to put up with that kind of treatment but she hasn t had to deal with this reality Sometimes it is difficult to believe that a woman would put up with this much abuse but I have also met and talked, and it is hard to put away hope The ending was too abrupt, almost as if the author ran out of time to finish the story and so ended it too quick [...]

    18. There were a couple of mildly suspenseful parts, but I got a little confused with the murder mystery I had a hard time connecting everyone who was involved in the murder and trial and felt like there really wasn t any closure to the murder I liked the relationship between the two friends and I think Hansen s portrayal of how women get into abusive relationships and then find it hard to get out is very realistic I just felt the ending was very abrupt I m thinking it s because she plans to write a [...]

    19. I am really trying to give LDS authors a try without judgment This is not your typical Jack Weyland Boy meets girl and live happily ever after story It starts out really good with 2 roommates living together needing another roommate to fill to empty space when one of them has the return missionary boyfriend move in I do feel like some of the story line was a little far fetched and some of the problems each character is involved in is to extreme for even a regular non religious person I felt like [...]

    20. Darcy and Clare grew up as best friends They went to college together and now live together in Boise However, Darcy doesn t approve of Clare s new boyfriend He seems very chauvinistic and demanding And when he decides to move in with them over Darcy s objections she becomes very alarmed for the welfare of her friend This is a good murder mystery but also a disturbing book about spousal abuse I didn t like it as well as other Jennie Hansen s books I ve read, and the ending seemed very abrupt and [...]

    21. This was an okay read with some unrealistic situations Namely, you get knocked out at school with your purse contents scattered all over and you don t call the police, and a bad guy finds a remote cabin that has no known connection to those he is looking for and finds them there.Unfortunatley there are plenty of women out there who are in similar circumstances as Clare but are so starved for attention that they put up with the garbage.

    22. I m a big Jennie Hansen fan, but this book didn t cut it for me It was anti climactic, the love story stunk they hadn t even kissed or said they loved each other, and suddenly he pops the question and I hated the ending I got the feeling that all the sub stories were going to merge together in the end, but nope I don t feel that any of them wrapped up well, and it didn t really hint at a sequel.

    23. okay the book on cd wasnt the best the story was okay but the reader sounded like a tour guide or the chick that guides you around in your car i think i would have liked it better had i read it and not listened to it it s a story about 2 best friends that sadly go their seperate ways because of some guy this guy turns out to be the biggest jerk in the entire world by the way there is a murder that has to be solved and lives that need to be saved good book.

    24. Clean This was definitely not a Who done it You know the whole time who the shmuck is, but it did have some exciting parts The romance not the heart palpitating physical chemistry kind yes, I realize this makes me sound SO LAME In fact, you get to the point when the guy proposes to girl, and you think What I thought he d just barely held her hand I don t want sizzle and sleeze in a book, but I d like a little heart fluttering

    25. This story touches on a modern issue one of abuse It is sad that so many women find themselves trapped in a marriage like this, but it is reality There were some suspenseful moments and some mysterious happenings going on, with just enough romance My only major problem with the book was the sudden ending I m not sure if it kind of left the reader hanging because a sequel is in the works or what, but it was a little too abrupt for me.

    26. I liked the characters in the book The plot kept me wondering what was going to happen next I wish Clair would have been a little bit smarter The ending wasn t quite to my liking as I like fairy tale and Everyone Lived Happily ever after This ending was realistic and possible.Overall good book.

    27. A quick read for the airplane The story tackles the subject of a manipulative, physically abusive relationship Made me want to go home and teach my girls about abusive boyfriends and to stay away from them I love that all of Jennie Hansen s books are set in the west, often in Idaho This one is set in Boise.

    28. I have to admit I was sorely disappointed I expected much from Hansen, but unlike her other novels, this moved painfully slow It lacked the gripping suspense I ve come to expect from her work I guess, with this being her seventeenth novel, she s bound to have one less than stellar piece of work.

    29. I learned alot from this book about choices, self destructive beliefs and how it impacts our choices And about how to make a fresh start and keep trying.
