This Christy Barritt thriller took me back to my childhood, when attending summer camp. We'd sit around the campfire and tell scary stories, mostly made up. I could picture my own summer camp as I read this story. The story grabbed me from the beginning as Molly ran into a mystery (literally) in the dark, before she ever got to the camp. The plot thickened and kept me interested to the very end.

I loved this book and could relate to all of the camp references and situations. It took me back to my youth--but only for a second. Then I was thrust into the mystery and romance of the book. It kept me awake at night as I tried to finish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A riveting romantic suspense. I was drawn into the story from the very first word. "Thump!" If you've ever been to camp, you probably have at least a few fond memories of your time there, or friends you made for the week. Ricochet will take you back to that moment in time, but also have you sitting on the edge waiting for what's going to happen next.

Ricochet had action from start to finish. Definitely not a book I'd read while home alone at night.:) I also enjoyed the elements of romance as the two main characters worked to overcome misconceptions and misunderstandings from their past.
Ricochet tells the story of Molly, a nurse who returns to the summer camp she'd attended for a week in high school. She had fond memories of the camp and wanted to return to the place she'd been the happiest while she figures out what is next in her life.
Nick is the new camp director and Molly's old boyfriend from her week at camp. He inherited the camp from his grandfather and is doing everything he can to keep the place afloat. But strange things are happening and from the moment Molly enters his life again danger and mystery abound.

Christy Barritt's Ricochet will not disappoint either romance or suspense lovers. Nurse Molly Hamilton encounters her first mystery on page one while driving to her new job at the summer camp she attended as a teen. More problems and dangers loom once Molly arrives at Camp Hope Springs--including a hazard to her heart in the form of Nick White, her former boyfriend.
Will Molly and Nick be able to solve the mysteries at Camp Hope Springs? Will they be able to keep the campers, staff, and themselves safe? Will they be able to prevent the closure of the camp? Will they be able to put the past behind them and forge a new relationship? These are questions the reader ponders throughout the novel.
The suspense persists until the very end. Characters and plot are well constructed, interesting, and plausible. Description is such that the reader can imagine herself running through the woods with Molly.
As a fellow fiction writer, I salute Christy Barritt and give Ricochet the highest rating. Keep up the good work, Christy!

The best week of Molly Hamilton's life was the week she spent at Camp Hope Springs as a teenager. It was the week that Jesus became very real in her life, it was also the week she fell in love with Nick White. However her life did not end up happy ever after. Nick broke up with her while he was in college, caving into the pressures from his parents. Molly went on to nursing school, working in a military hospital, however a toxic relationship has left her under suspicion of stealing drugs. All she wants is to find that peace she felt at Camp Hope Springs, so when she is hired to be the nurse for the summer, she is hopeful that peace will be found. What she does not expect is to see Nick White, nor does she expect to run over a man in the road. A man already dead, nor does she expect to be terrorized at the camp. No her expectations certainly did not include any of these things. She is not sure her heart can take working so close with Nick, she steels herself to not allow the attraction to distract her.
I love Christy Barritt's books, she just has the right amount of mystery and suspense with a bit of romance thrown in. A great afternoon read, you will not want to miss. 215 pages US $5.75 4 stars
