While this story had its twists and turns, it didn't really grab me. I wanted to get to the end of the book to find out the ending but that's about it. Nothing really pulled me in. Kaycee could be grating at times, and the two different story lines didn't really pull together until the very end. It was a nice twist but not enough for me to say the whole thing was worth it.

This is an excellent book. It is well written and kept me up way past my bedtime. I donated it to the library where I work and have recommended it numerous times. The patrons have never been disappointed and have requested more of her books.

This book is a gotta have book if you are a Collins fan, like me. This book like most of her other books is a murder mystery supsense, which will make you want to keep reading it. This is an awesome book and i recommend it to anyone who has ever struggled with a fear.

I really thought I had Collin's plot all figured out, smart reader that I am. Even if the book had not been so good, I would have read to the end just for the satisfaction of knowing I knew "who donnit". Then, suddenly, I was smacked in the head by an incoming missle that never hit my radar screen. Ohhhh myyyyyy..... What a great read! The worse thing about the book? It kept me up at night until I finished it!! Brandilyn Collins has outwritten all her previous novels in "Exposure". Never had I read a book that shocked me as much as this book. Truly she has earned the right to be called the Queen of "Seatbelt Suspense"!! Amazing characters and plot. Surprise ending.. did I mention the surprise ending? Even if I read the book backwards I never would have seen it coming!!

My husband was away on a business trip recently, and there's a rule of nature that says things will always break when he's away. Light bulbs I can fix; blocked drains; computers that refuse to switch on. I'm really fairly independent. But come night-time, I walk round every room in the house, checking every electrical socket to make sure no plugs are falling out and no wiring's getting warm. I check the cooker, double-check, run my hands over the top. I lock and relock the windows and doors, and look in the garage to see if the car's okay. Then I listen to every creak and groan, the plumbing's moan, the drips from the roof, the patter of critters in the yard. When I started reading Exposure, by Brandilyn Collins, I felt right at home. The protagonist, Kaycee, knows all about the fears of an empty house. She battles them by writing a humorous column in the paper, and I'm jealous; I want her job. But then things start to happen, little things with big impact and no evidence left behind. Maybe they're just images from Kaycee's subconscious mind. And maybe they don't matter, because someone Kaycee cares for might turn out to be in real danger. Or maybe. Kaycee's still checking windows and doors, closing curtains, and jumping at sounds that the house spins around her. And I'm jumping too. Jumping more when she sees "it" again. But hey! My husband's home. I don't need my night-time rituals. Still, Ms. Collins conveys Kaycee's feelings so powerfully I find myself checking electrical outlets again. But I don't switch out the light; I have to keep reading to the end. Exposure is a very satisfying novel. The twists and turns move naturally, leading the reader to guess and not quite guess, doubt and not quite doubt, till an ending that brings all the different threads together. Do people's worst fears always happen? I have to believe they don't, though I'm sure they sometimes do. And Ms. Collins' novel reminds me that there's ways to cope, and someone out there will hold my hand too if my world falls apart. I don't want Kaycee's job after all. Her column reads way better written by her. Read the book and I'm sure you'll agree.

Kept me guessing until the end

The author gives us a chilling look at how fears, both real and imagined, bind us or motivate us to make choices, for good or ill. Through the perceptions of different characters, we must sort out what’s real and what’s not.

WOW! "Exposure" is definitely a must have. Brandilyn Collins always delivers in her thrilling novels and she did not cut us short on this one. This book was very good and I know you will love it. I got to a point where I was scared to turn the page. It will also reach you on a spiritual level and remind you of who's in conrtol, which is God. Please get it. Get it now. Right now. Go, right now and get this. Now, lol! God Bless!

As we expect from this best-selling author, Exposure is an interesting and tense mystery /crime drama. The character Kaycee Raye is overwhelmed with fear every minute of every day of her life, and as the reader, I couldn't help but feel that fear with her all through the book. There were twists and turns in the story along the way, but in the end, all of it comes together until it is proven that even paranoids can have real enemies. I had no clue ahead of time to the twists in the storyline and the surprises added to my enjoyment of the book. Again Zondervan publishes a wonderful fiction book that demonstrates people who struggle with doubts and fears, but rely on their faith to get them through.

A columnist from a small town starts experiencing some very disturbing events at her home that closely mirror her own worst nightmares. It is not clear if those events are due to her delusional mind, some sick copycat who plays some elaborate joke on her, or genuine supernatural phenomena. Meanwhile a daughter of her friend runs away from home and goes missing. In an unrelated story a bank clerk with severe case of claustrophobia goes through a very harrowing bank-robbery. These three stories don't seem to have much in common, and the reader is kept wondering until the very end what the connection is. This puzzle is the one of the main sources of interest for me in an otherwise rather unremarkable novel. The writing is extremely simplistic even for a hard-boiled crime novel, and characters are very flat. The characters oftentimes do such dumb things that it can be a challenge to maintain the suspension-of-disbelief throughout the novel. The final resolution of the plot did somewhat work out, although even that left me scratching my head about many particulars. The invocation of God in one of the last chapters felt totally gratuitous and unconnected with the rest of the story. I have no problem with intertwining a deeper spiritual or religious message into a story, but this needs to be done with some dose of tact in a meaningful, naturally-flowing way. Otherwise it looks as ridiculous as a top-hat on a hobo. Despite all of its flaws, this is a decent, readable, book that will keep you interested and can be worthwhile if you have nothing better to read.
