Product Description

About the Author

Chris Stralyn never intended to be a writer. Short-order cook, security guard, safety officer, childcare provider, and teacher were all titles she’d worn – but never writer. Then she entered an essay contest for “The Worst Vacation Ever” and won. Writing became her new hobby, and soon she had several articles in print with local publications. This was followed by a short story, The Khaki Pants, which was published by RDR Publishing in an anthology that went on to sell over a million copies. A suspense thriller was her next undertaking, and in 2008 This Time You Lose was named a finalist in the TNBW Strongest Start Novel Competition. Four months later it earned the distinction of being a TNBW Readers Choice Top Ten Novel, and has remained on the Top Ten list ever since. Chris Stralyn continues to put pen to paper in her endeavor to appease the Muse within. She lives in Michigan with her husband and family.

This is the story of a burglary that goes horribly wrong.

Lisa is a daycare owner and a much liked person in her neighbourhood but things take a turn for the worse when her home is invaded one night.

Brilliantly written story which is full of tension and has very likeable characters (especially Lisa & Jeff).

Well recommended book for anyone who enjoys a good tense,action packed thriller.

This book popped up on my recommended reads and I didn't really expect anything of it so thought i'll read the sample and see what it's like. OMG best decision i've made in ages once i started reading that sample i bought the book straight away. I haven't read a crime thriller so well written in a long time. To be honest I had actually got a little bored of the genre but this book yanked me back in so fast I never found my feet. It was fast paced but didn't scrimp on details once, I constantly felt like I was right there with them all. I quite liked the fact she didn't try to hide from the violence but instead embraced it as being part of the genre. I find that too many authors find it harder to accept that violence is a part of the crime thriller world and it's ok too write about it. I read this book in a day and literally could not put it down. Anyone who is unsure read it and you will absolutely love it.(

I felt as if I'd held my breath while reading this story until the very end - phew - not being sure what was going to happen next. It was certainly fast-paced, filled to the brim with action and extremely well-written. I also thought it was a wonderful exploration of what constitutes as evil - and Lisa found it in spades.

That's all I will say about the plot, I don't give spoilers, but if you like suspense and to sprint along with the characters at a an amazing pace, then you'll love this tale of right and wrong and how to be strong in the face of such wickedness.

Recommended.

Although I may have titled it differently, this book engaged me from the first page. I got this book as a freebie and on the off chance and I have to say, it blew me away!

The plot is engaging and intriguing and you do empathise with the parents and children and Lisa all the way through. This lady has a gift.

The characters are so well plotted you can envisage them with no problem at all - even the children are very realistically detailed for their ages and manners.

A freebie has definitely turned me from a freebie getter to a possible purchaser from now on.

Great psychological thriller - Lisa, who runs a daycare for neighbouring children, wakes to find herself tied up and gagged, imprisoned by four men. As her 'charges' arrive with their parents, children and adults are also taken hostage, leading to a stand-off with the police over a ransom. In her house, Lisa has to try to protect the children and the other parents from their captors, one in particular who seems to loathe Lisa and takes pleasure in making things difficult. A tense rollercoaster of a story, well-written with good characters - 8.5/10.

i read his book in a few short hours because i could not put it down. characters are extremely believable and the fight scenes keep you on the edge of your seat while hoping the characters win their fight for survival. i am a mother of one and it made me stop amd think what if that happened to me? would i be as brave as lisa? i like to think so. i think the scariest thing about this book is that it has probably happened somewhere in the world and will happen again. there are some people that are truly evil.

I couldn't put this book away. I was rivited to my kindle when I had time to spare. I thought the bravery and guts of Lisa were tremendous. Her oneman fight against the invaders of her home and workplace was inspirational and makes me hope that I would be as couragous as her in a given situation. (one which I hope I am never in). She would of fought to the death to save the children if she had to. A great book which I would recommend to anyone.

I liked this book and found it hard to put down. The main character is gritty and believable and the baddies are bad!!! I didnt think this book needed answers to everything, in fact it made it more realistic. Sometimes bad things in life just happen there doesnt need to be a reason and often isnt. The story is compelling and believe me you will finish it quickly as you wont be able to put it down.
