Product Description

Quiet River is a small town and people are friendly. But evil lives in quiet water.

A woman kills her husband. Who is she? Why did she do it? Will she get away with it?

Lisa and Matt Collins spend a weekend at the small town of Quiet River, where their son, Evan, meets a woman who says he looks like her son, and gives him cookies. The next morning a hotel clerk, an older woman, gives them another bag of cookies and explains that somebody brought it from the kitchen for Evan. Lisa sees that something changes in clerks eyes, but doesn't pay attention. The family goes back home to Seattle, where Matt returns to his job as a magazine editor and Lisa finds out she is pregnant second time. After a short while, Matt’s personal assistant dies in a car accident and he hires a new one: Kristine. One day Kristine presents Matt and Lisa with tickets to a ballet performance and after that night their quiet lives change forever, when they get involved into a violent store robbery and Lisa loses her unborn child. They think it was their worst nightmare but how little did they know. They have to return to Quiet River to learn what the darkest dark is and what face it can wear.

More About the Author

Natasha A. Salnikova was born in ex-Soviet Kazakhstan where she wrote and hosted two TV shows. At the age of 24 she moved to Moscow (Russia) to chase her screenwriting dream. Soon she became a writer for the national prime-time talk show "Tema" and soon also was writing for national sitcoms and dramas. At that time a publisher hired her to adapt a popular TV series into a novel, and Natasha realized that she could fulfill her writer's hunger better with novels rather that TV scripts.
In Moscow Natasha met an American writer and traveler and in 2001 she made a big decision and moved to America to be with him, leaving behind her career and family. They married in 2001 and she started to build her American dream. She had acting roles in TV commercials, shot photographs for a Knopf/Random House travel guide, studied English and kept wiring.
In 2005 Natasha and her husband David invited into their lives two beautiful girls.
Currently Natasha lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with her kids and her husband. She writes feature stories for a Russian newspaper and teaches yoga. "Quiet River" is her first novel in English. Natasha's favorite writer is Steven King, who influenced her work in many ways, including the genre she's writing in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 8 Aug 2011
By Ralf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can not believe how badly written this boook is. How it ever got published I shall never know as it is so unbelievably poorly written. Nearly every page has spelling errors, typographical errors and bad grammar. I understand that the author is Russian and this is her first book written in English so I could make some allowances but when I pay good money for a book I expect it to have at least been edited so that it is readable. Some sentences I had to read twice to make sense of it. The plot itself I found very slow starting and drawn out with too much character analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet River 23 Oct 2011
By Quentin R. Stewart, Jr. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Quiet River is a small town where life is slowed and everyone knows everyone else. A quiet little place that is slow in accepting outsiders but not adverse to getting to know the new residents and make them feel welcome. But beneath all of this is an evil that is reaching out to draw a particular family into its embrace so that two women can get what they want but up to now did not think that they had the opportunity for the happiness that they are searching.

The book has enough twists and turns to keep any mystery reader guessing throughout the book. It starts out as if it is going to be a story about a happily married couple and their children in an urban area. What could enter this world to upset what appears to be a perfect life. That is when people from Quiet River enter the story. The idea of going to a quiet town and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city draws the family into the web that has been woven to trap them and if necessary destroy them as a family and possibly as individuals. It seems that danger lurks in the bucolic environment that the family has chosen to regenerate themselves after a tragedy in the big city.

The book is very interesting and an excellent read. If you are into mysteries and enjoy trying to figure out what is going to happen next then this will be an enjoyable read for you. Very good book.

There were a few parts of this novel that left me wanting that little something "extra", and there were parts that sort of went on a bit too long and dragged the story down, but overall the story itself was good. Some of the other reviews complained about the grammar and spelling issues, but overall the editing wasn't horrible. Not bad for a first novel from someone with English as a second language.

By Brenda Seaberg - Published on

I think my title pretty much sums it up. I didn't expect much from this book simply because it was one of the first I got for my Kindle, and at that time I was just loading it up with anything I could find. I had it several months before I finally read it. And man, what I was missing! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and have already bought the next one. The twists and turns were great. And I will definitely look for more by this author!

My boyfriend gave me Kindle with some books already uploaded and this one was the first I read, because the writer is Russian. I like thrillers, especially psychological kind and this was great. I really like it. I'm not good with reviews and I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll keep it sweet and short. I really enjoyed the book and I will look for more from this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well, thank goodness 2 Oct 2011
By Ali McTear - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this was only a .99 cent mistake on my part! Allowing for the fact this is the author's first crack at a novel in English, one would expect a half-way decent editor to work with a writer to correct grammar, spelling etc and make the book flow better. Interesting concept however - I hope the author takes time to get her work edited more professionally in future.
