3.5 Stars ONE FELL DOWN was a lighter romantic suspense with an intriguing story and likable characters. New Zealand's epic scenery and one of its native cultures was woven here and there in the story. Would recommend to those who enjoy cozy mysteries or other books in the genre. The story started right off with a tragic accident that immediately made me emphasize with the heroine. It then slowly developed through the main characters and tidbits here and there from the villain. I really liked Mikaela and Brentin. I also liked that I wasn't completely sure who the villain's inside man was until almost the very end. The whole Tolkien aspect was also interesting, especially as a fan. I did have a few small issues here and there with the plausibility of some things. I also wanted a stronger motive for the villain, or maybe a more rational one. I would also have liked a little more of the culture and setting to have come across stronger in the story. The romance was sweet, but I wanted a little more development. In the end, was it what I wished for? I would have liked a little more from this story, but overall, it was an enjoyable read. Content: Some violence, but clean.

(4.5 Stars) First of all, I love the cover! I love it when a cover really portrays what the story is about and this one is perfect for a suspenseful murder mystery mostly set in New Zealand. After Mikaela's fiancé and grandmother die, her grandfather sends her to New Zealand to manage the renovations on his Bed & Breakfast. While there, she discovers Maori superstitions, death, danger, and love. I would be a mess in Mikaela's situation, and while she handles it fairly well, she's not emotionally whole, which leads to a bit of hesitancy in her relationships. I like a character who goes after what she knows she wants, but I thought the doubt felt real and brings her to a new dimension. The romance is a gentle and sweet side note to a well-crafted plot. My family loves Lord of the Rings and the references and activities pertaining to these books/movies is a great aspect and results in so much fun. This suspense in this story mostly builds at a slower pace. Although the reader knows who the mastermind behind these deaths is, the motive is revealed along the way and the minions aren't discovered until almost the very end. Those are my favorite kinds of suspense books to read--the ones where I'm trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, along with the characters. Although I knew what was going on for the most part, there are still some fun surprises and clues. This is a great read for those who enjoy suspense, but aren't a fan of the high-intense anxiety inducing books. Content: very mild religious elements (a character prays in her mind for help several times); mild violence (murders--not graphic; moments of peril); mild romance. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher.

Since the first time I read a book by Ronda Henrichsen she became my favorite author of mystery. She didn't disappoint me with One Fell Down. My attention was captured in the first chapter. The clues were so well hidden throughout the story that the ending was unexpected. Her descriptions of places throughout the book made me feel as though I was there. This book had cliff hangers at the end of each chapter making it impossible to put down. This is a well written book that kept my interest until the end.

Ronda Hinrichsen has a gift for blending suspense with romance, intrigue, and exotic locations. 'One Fell Down' is a perfect example of this. The story starts right off with two seemingly unrelated accidental deaths that are the catalyst for Mikaela York to go to New Zealand to take care of some renovations at an inn her grandparents own. The suspense continues to build with a mysterious doll, a skeleton found on the property, and one of the guests suddenly passing away under suspicious circumstances. The story weaves between action and glimpses into the mind and motive of the man behind the deaths. Hinrichsen does a great job of bringing the Maori/New Zealand culture, with its superstitions and fun accent, into the narrative, as well as the beauty of that country. She also brings in references to 'Lord of the Rings' being filmed and celebrated in NZ which I thought was really fun. The book does start off on a sad note, but the reader gets to experience Mikaela's rise from tragedy and loss to hope in a new future with one of the guests staying at the inn. An great read, especially if you enjoy clean suspense.
