This was my third spindler book. Could not stay away from it. Kept my interest. This story line was quite different than the first two of hers that I read. I will be reading more of her books that is for sure. Can't fo wrong here if she is an author that you like.

This is the first book I have read by Erica. It was great! From the begining to the very end. I highly recommend this to read, only if you like sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.

Read this book while on vacation and this was truly a great beach read. This wasn't my 1st Erica Spindler book and definitely wasn't my last. I love her writing style and how well she portrays the characters and the setting.

This book had me gripped from the start. Full of suspense and intrigue and very hard to put down. A definite "must read" for fans of thriller/suspense novels.

I liked this book. I really, really did. But I didn’t like Richard. At all. He’s selfish, insecure, egotistical, and prone to bouts of jealousy. He’s not exactly husband material, even though Kate has been married to him for the past ten years, in what I can only assume was wedded bliss, until he found a bed more enticing than his own. Sure, he’s attractive for middle age, and he seems to take care of himself, but that doesn’t give him a license for adultery. And I’d have to say for an ex-CIA officer, John Powers isn’t really all that appealing either. He takes child molestation and stalking and revenge and a sense of perverted justice to a whole new level, and as long as he has a gun or knife in his possession, he doesn’t care who gets in his way. Yeah, he pretty much has that whole evil thing down pat. While Luke Dallas does have his finer moments, he starts out as a reasonably unlikeable character, and he’s become just a wee bit obsessed with rubbing his writing success in the face of Richard and Kate, to the point that his Christmas cards are filled with publicity announcements for his latest masterpiece. But he did change (and for the better) by the end of the novel, while Richard proceeded on his downward, self-obsessed spiral faster than Tiger Woods. Right about now, you might be asking yourself why I gave CAUSE FOR ALARM four stars. Other than a group of unlikeable characters (all of which seemed to be male), this book held my attention from the first page to the last. The story provided enough twists and turns to rival a West Virginia holler, intriguing characterization (if you exclude about a handful of males), I could practically taste the humidity in the Mandeville, Louisiana setting, and the book moved as swiftly as an interstate highway. If I didn’t already have more Erica Spindler novels in my Kindle, I’d certainly be adding a few more after this entertaining read.

I loved the plot for this book. It’s nothing too fancy but Erica Spindler was clever with creating complications. At the centre we have Julianna Starr + Kate Ryan + Richard Ryan with a baby connecting them all together but Julianna wants Richard to be her lover, creating chaos in Kate and Richard’s marriage. But that’s not all. By getting involved with the Ryans’ lives, Julianna drags them into her conflict with the ‘man of unspeakable evil’, putting all their lives in danger… Exciting plot! My kudos to the author. I think what I loved most about this book is the author’s way of ending almost every chapter with some kind of statement that makes me go: “You have no idea, girl”, or “Mmmmhm”. They’re not cliffhangers. They just hint at what is about to happen or about to go wrong. I finished the book feeling satisfied with the ending, with the fates she wrote for each character. If you like having no loose ends in a book or having nothing left up to your imagination, you will love Cause for Alarm. I haven’t read any other Erica Spindler novels, but I happen to see one in the local library, I’ll grab it for sure.

I have read other books by this other that have more well developed characters and a story plot that seems more plausable. This book just wasn't for me.

I bought the book based on the reviews from other readers. I still haven't finished it. Can't seem to get into this book.

This was an excellent thriller by Erica Spindler, one of my idols and fellow Shelfari friends. Great action, drama and suspense in short chapters for a two day read. Fabulous! Julianna Starr finds the perfect couple to help them out as their surrogate. For Kate and Richard Ryan, it was the dream solution, if they couldn't adopt. But when she agrees, Julianna goes after Richard and pretends to be Kate. She stalks them. But she's not alone. Someone from her past, is now after Julianna and the Ryans, and turns their world upside down.
