Book Review: Past Suspicion by Therese Heckenkamp

Past Suspicion by Therese Heckenkamp

From the book description (from back cover):

“As this intriguing story of suspense unfolds, seventeen-year-old Robin is forced from her California home to live in Wisconsin with an uncle she never knew existed. Here in her mother’s hometown, Robin meets two young men and, while unraveling the secrets of her mother’s past, becomes involved in a treacherous plot, not realizing the importance of untangling her own life if she is to find a direction for her future.”

My thoughts:

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I am not a huge fan of mystery or suspense novels. Never was. Still, not one to refuse a free book, I happily accepted when Therese Heckenkamp offered Past Suspicion in exchange for a review. (Thanks, Therese!)

As I always when I do a review, I resisted the urge to read the last chapter of the book first. (Yes, yes, I do read the last chapter of the book, usually, what can I say? 🙂 ) It was hard. The book was a page turner. I was quickly drawn into the story and it was hard to put down.

Although the heroine is a teen, adults will enjoy this book. I did. The characters were realistic, interesting and well-developed. The plot was engaging and intriguing. I enjoyed Therese’s writing style and would definitely recommend her book.

I give this book three (3) stars.



  1. Carol, I also enjoyed this book. What I found amazing was that Therese was a teenager/young adult when she wrote this novel…incredible.
