#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan reaches new heights of passion and suspense in this thrilling novel that takes readers deep into the California backcountry, where a woman is tormented by visions of a killer.
It starts in her dreams. Hideous flashes from a nightmare only she can stop. Images of a murderer stalking the ones she cares about most...
Stella Harrison thought she got away from the traumas of her past. Running the Sunrise Lake resort high in the Sierra Nevada mountains has brought her peace, even though she doesn't truly share her quiet life with anyone. Not even Sam, the hired handyman that notices everything and always seems to know exactly what she needs.
Stella doesn't know anything about Sam's past, but somehow over the last two years his slow, steady presence has slipped past her defenses. Still, she knows she can't tell him about her recent premonitions. So far there's been no murder. No body. No way to prove what's about to happen without destroying the life she's built for herself.
But a killer is out there. And Stella knows that this time she'll do whatever it takes to stop him.

Murder at Sunrise Lake proves again why I love Feehan’s writing. She creates amazing suspense, some seriously spine chilling moments, and romance. There is something here for everyone!

I love police procedurals, true crime, and thrillers, so when I found out Christine Feehan was writing a super suspenseful romance with heroine who could “see” a killer I was titivated for sure. Feehan weaves in some supernatural elements into all of her stories and that is another aspect that makes me love her writing. Murder at Sunrise Lake is spooky and I was creeped out many times. Because the heroine, Stella, dreams of the killers actions, you have a really unique glimpse that is gripping and creepy. I loved it! Stella doesn’t want these visions, and while she wants to help put this murderer away, she doesn’t want people thinking she is crazy.

Now, I will be honest and say I figured out the identity of the killer fairly quickly. Truly, I do in most books I read. I watch WAY too much crime tv. However, that didn’t dull my enjoyment of the story overall! It was an interesting game of “how to catch a killer” once I figured out the who.

The romance is rock solid and I loved that. Sam and Stella are a great pair, but Sam has secrets of his own. He was a steady hero for her and I appreciated that it was minimal drama between these two.

If you like your books with touches of thriller, paranormal, romance, and suspense, Murder at Sunrise Lake is a satisfying pick that will hit all your buttons!
