Dan Padavona Ñ 1 REVIEW

A definite must read for all horror fans!

I have always loved thriller and horror stories, and this book definitely did not disappoint! It was an intense, complex, and twisted psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. It's definitely a must read! I would highly recommend all of this author's work, as I have yet to find one story that I didn't absolutely love.
I would definitely recommend this book and exceptional author. Severity not his best

I have read a bunch of his books but this one lacked the thrill of most of his books. Try the Wolfe Lake series if you haven’t read it. Severity Also known as Her Shallow Grave as I read it. Severity Very intense and hard to put down

One of the most most intense psychological killer books I’ve read. It made me hold my breath waiting to see what was going to happen next. If you are into suspenseful, intriguing and downright crazy things happening this is a book you will want to read. It is one you will not want to put down. And one that will keep you thinking. Severity ordinary. Severity

This is a winner. This book had a little of everything adultery, alcoholism, mental illness, stalking, violence, teenage love triangles and of course murder. This book was so suspenseful at times that I was on the edge of my seat. I suggest that you read the last 1/3 of the book without any interruptions to reap the full benefits of the suspense and horror that is carried out until the ending.
There are no creatures in this story although there is a real life monster. Very scary indeed.

I highly recommend this book and give it 4 1/2 🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐ stars! Severity Ok... The title must have changed, as I had it labeled The Shallow Grave. I probably won this novel from a GoodReads giveaway, but all opinions about this book are my honest thoughts.

I like the book. It read quite smoothly with only a few hiccups. I did enjoy the book and read it quickly, eagerly. It allows the reader to ponder the possibilities behind the motives of the characters. The female lead character sure can fight well physically for being disabled for six months and she can think under major stress.

#1 The use of the word swishing three times, at least. In autumn, there is no swishing through the grass in New England. Maybe crunching?? The word jumped out at me after the second and then the third use. lol

#2 NO one is going to invite a stranger into their home for more than a cup of water and maybe use of a bathroom, even if they spent the day together at a yard sale! But this character, who also began a heated affair with a male stranger, not only makes a meal, but invites this strange woman to nap, then sleep overnight in her home where the owner lives alone! It just doesn't sit right with me.
....And just what medical assistance can be done for a bruise far after the injury? An ice pack might help the patient, but usually, bruises must slowly heal on their own.

#3 The last page/the ending was as if it was from another novel???? I get that the author was trying to initiate future mystery for a possible sequel, but this was a total fail. There were no other possibilities or lose ends to continue this tale.

#4 What happened to the handyman?? Did he survive? And poor Jimmy... in the scene at the backdoor of the ex-husband's home in the woods? Last we hear is his grunts and groans of getting beaten up, then he is in the field with the ladies.

As grumbly as I sound in this review, all in all, I am glad I read this book. I like a mystery with twists and turns. I also like the works of Dan Padavona and will not hesitate to pick up more books written by him. Thank you Mr Padavona~ Severity This is a slow moving story, but I found it interesting. I read this as Her Shallow Grave. I found this book very dark and confusing at times. When things towards the end I knew how book would conclude. I was not too far off. If you like dark and creepy you might like Her Shallow Grave or Severity, which ever you read. I read on Kindle Unlimited Severity Unput Downable…

I know bad grammar but true none the less true. This story will grab your attention and keep you turning pages. Marissa slowly unravels the web of lies and deceit that has become her life. She is a good strong character. I look forward to reading more by this author, Thanks Dan Padavona. Severity Wow!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book, but all I can say is I'm so glad I did! This is an edge of your seat thriller right from the get go to the very end. Strong female lead character is always a good thing, at least in my opinion. I don't want to say too much about the plot, as I don't want to give anything away. My best recommendation is to just read it! Highly recommend! Severity
