Book Description

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town - the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Until now, Four women have disappeared in two years. A blue ribbon left near the spot where each was last seen. There are no other clues. And now another young woman has disappeared without a trace. Lilly Martin is trying to outrun a snowstorm when her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man as he emerges from the woods on foot. Lilly recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she met the summer before. They've no choice but to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn't the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great mix of sexual tension and thrills! 16 Aug. 2005
Sandra Brown is back with another tightly woven thriller. Chill factor (appropriate after her last release "White Hot") takes place in the middle of a blizzard in the mountains of North Carolina. Lilly and Dutch Burton have had a rough go after losing their young daughter, Dutch is the Local small town police Chief and Lilly is a high powered magazine editor. Lilly is leaving the couples mountain get-away cabin during a Blizzard when she loses control of her car and smashes into a hiker. The hiker is good looking Ben Tierney, a freelance writer she met briefly and flirted with a year ago. Lilly has no choice but to take the injured Ben back to the cabin and wait the storm out. Over the previous year the local area has been stricken by the case of five missing women. It is after Lilly calls Dutch and tells him of her situation, that Dutch is contacted by FBI agents with evidence that Ben Tierny is the serial killer. I think we can all see the suspense to be built up in this situation, and for the most part the author carries it off. My main complaint is that some of the plot is built on some pretty shaky assumptions, but then again most books of this genre have the same problem. Nothing too heavy here, a good beach read with well drawn characters, some good sexual tension, and a couple of great plot twists. Fans of Brown will be pleased. I am also recommending "Tourist in the Yucatan" as another good thriller read. It was recommended to me by an Amazon friend and I am now "Paying it Forward." You do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful 15 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I find Sandra Brown's Chill Factor not only to be a very illuminating read, but to be very classy and masterly written as well. It comes with all the intrigues, suspense and rich characters that are indispensible for a good thriller and mystery story. The descriptions are very evocative, and like Triple Agent Double Cross, another thrilling novel I read, the setting also plays a very great contributive role in the mystery and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally compelling & steamy thriller 18 Dec. 2006
This was my first experience of Sandra Brown, and I personally think that I could not have picked a better book as an introduction.

This book is full of twists and turns that made me want to keep turning the page. In order to finish reading the last 200 odd pages, I had to stay up until 2am!!

As other reviews have mentioned, you are never quite sure who the good guys are and who are the bad guys.

The sub plots are completely engrossing too.

Thank you Sandra Brown for creating a great read!!!

...All I need to do now is find a leading man as dynamic as the one in Chill Factor :o)

4.0 out of 5 stars Chill Factor 9 Feb. 2006
Sandra Brown has been one of my favorite suspense writers since I read `ENVY' back in 2002 and her newest thriller `CHILL FACTOR' is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
Just when Lilly Martin thinks that she has closed a painful chapter in her life and is ready to move on she finds herself in the midst of a terrible snowstorm trapped in the mountain cabin she formerly owned with her ex-husband chief of police Dutch Burton. Not only is she trapped in the cabin with a scarce amount of food and water, but so is the mysterious Ben Tierney whom she accidentally struck with her car trying to escape the coming storm. After Lilly makes a frantic call to Dutch requesting help and medical attention for Tierney, it comes to Dutch's attention that Tierney is the number one suspect in the murder of five women. Now Dutch takes it upon himself to head up a rescue mission to get up that mountain despite the obvious danger and FBI warnings for him not to get involved in the investigation. And as Lilly and Ben grow closer it becomes abundantly clear that this mystery man is definitely hiding something.
Every time you think you have this captivating plot figured out Brown pulls the rug out from under you until you stop trying to figure it out and just enjoy the ride. Sandra Brown fans will love this exciting and thrilling new novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Holiday Read 30 Nov. 2010
I've seen a lot of Sandra Brown books at airports but had never read one until now. But I saw here interviewed on televsion and liked her so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm glad I did. It was a good holiday read, keeping my attention, and had a good plot and interesting characters. It was a bit scmaltzy at the end, perhaps,but that didn't worry me much.

I'll certainly read another Sandra Brown book.
