THE SURVIVORSA plane crash, a clairvoyant, a killer, and a storm somehow Dinah McCall puts it all together in a book hard to put down Love the five generations of O Ryan s, great heroes. Something a little different Who knows what will work for me or not This one did work and I loved it In this story a plane crashes and almost everyone is killed, except for a little boy and a woman, and the man who wants to kill them Edge of your seat excitment When A Passenger Plane Goes Down In The Appalachians, Rescue Teams Start Looking For Survivors And Discover That A Five Year Old Boy And A Woman Are Missing Twenty Miles From The Crash Site, Deborah Sanborn Has A Vision Of Two Survivors, Cold, Hurting And Scared Over The Years She Has Learned To Trust Her Gift, And She Senses These Strangers Are In Terrible Danger She Sees A Hunter, Moving In For The KillFour Generations Of O Ryan Men Have Gathered At The Crash Site, Ready To Search For The Missing Boy, Johnny O Ryan His Forty Five Year Old Grandfather Mike O Ryan Isn T Sure What To Make Of Deborah, But With The Snow Coming Down, Sh S All They Ve Got To Lead Them Through The Mountains Because Not Only Are They Racing Against Time And The Elementsthey Re Up Against A Killer Desperate To Silence His Only Living Witnesses To Murder I was tempted to give this book 5 stars because I really enjoyed it, but there was a thing near the end that bugged me, along with a few other small details.The big issue I had was how the antagonist died I don t care that he diedhe deserved it It was the how Mike shoots him as Wilson is on the run The guy drops and is pretty much probably going to die within minutes He s not doing anything but laying there dying, yet Mike goes up to him, puts the barrel of the gun at his chest, and pulls the trigger WTF If that happened in real life, or a cop did that, there d be outrage and probably charges filed Sure the guy was evil, but to just go up and blow him away when he s already down for the count It didn t work for me.The other gripe I had was that McCall left out a lot of small background details that I really wanted to know She tells you that Evan s wife died a few years ago, but never says how she died Mike had two previous failed marriages, but you don t learn any than that I wanted to know these things It gives the characters so much depth.But despite those things above, this was overall a good book It was another one where I never paid attention to what page I was on because the story kept me hooked I loved the characters and hated to see the book end The romance is a bit on the quiet side, but it was sweet and heart warming than passionate.Sala McCall fans will probably enjoy this book. An amazing book Never a dull moment Full of excitement and wondering what will happen next Thanks to Linda for suggesting I read this book Excellent BookThis was a great story It had excitement, suspense, and loved all the characters The writer kept you wondering throughout what was going to happen next It took me two days to read Highly recommend A great premise is quickly wasted in The Survivors This could have been a creepy and thrilling book but once the survivors are discovered about half way through it devolves quickly into a run of the mill romance novels I wouldn t recommend this to anyone except those that enjoy a pure romance novel.When a passenger plane goes down in the Appalachians, rescue teams start looking for survivors and discover that a five year old boy and a woman are missing Twenty miles from the crash site, Deborah Sanborn has a vision of two survivors, cold, hurting and scared Over the years she has learned to trust her gift, and she senses these strangers are in terrible danger She sees a hunter, moving in for the kill.Four generations of O Ryan men have gathered at the crash site, ready to search for the missing boy, Johnny O Ryan His forty five year old grandfather Mike O Ryan isn t sure what to make of Deborah, but with the snow coming down, sh s all they ve got to lead them through the mountains Because not only are they racing against time and the elementsthey re up against a killer desperate to silence his only living witnesses to murder.

I had a hard time putting this down This was the first Dinah McCall or Sharon Sala I ve read, and I wouldn t hesitate to read The rescue happens rather early in the story, so I wondered what else was going to happen The weather didn t disappoint.My one complaint is that I found it hard to believe that the bad guy would survive as long as he did in the wilderness in bad weather, injured, with very little food and or water But I rarely read anything that doesn t require at least a little suspension of disbelief. Plans wreckWhen a plane crashes in the mountains in Kentucky it sets in motion a series of events that keep you turning the pages almost faster than you can read them.A woman and a young are running for their lives into the mountains with a mad man after them.The O Ryan s come in full force to help find the little boy that is part of their family.I love this great adventure and the fabulous wither that wrote it Thanks Dinah.
Sharon Sala.It was a job she hated that drove Sharon Sala to put the first page of paper in an old typewriter, but it was the love of the craft that kept her writing Her first efforts at writing came in 1980 when she began a book that wound up under her bed A second book followed in 1981 and suffered a similar fate, but she claims the writing bug had bitten hard However, she let life and the demands of a growing family delay her from continuing until a tragedy struck.Her father died in May of 1985 after a lingering illness, and then, only two months later, her only sister died unexpectedly She vowed then and there that she was not going to wind up on her deathbed one day with regrets for not following through on her dreams.She joined writers groups and attended conferences, and she slowly learned her way around the written page By 1989, she decided she had come far enough in her writing to attempt another try at book length fiction and began a book that would later be entitled Sara s Angel As fate would have it, the first publisher she sent it to bought it, and she hasn t looked back.As a farmer s daughter, and then for many years a farmer s wife, Sharon escaped the drudgeries of life through the pages of books, and now, as a writer, she finds herself often living out her dreams Through traveling and speaking and the countless thousands of fan letters she has received, Sharon has touched many lives One faithful reader has crowned her the Reba of Romance, while others claim she s a magician with words.Her stories are often dark, dealing with the realities of this world, and yet she s able to weave hope and love within the words for the readers who clamor for her latest works.Her books repeatedly make the bestseller lists, including those of The New York Times, USA TODAY, Publishers Weekly, and the Waldenbooks mass market fiction list, and she s been nominated for a RITA Award seven times, which is the romance writer s equivalent of having an Oscar or an Emmy nomination.Always an optimist in the face of bad times, she finds that many of the stories she writes come to her in dreams, but there s nothing fanciful about her work She puts her faith in God and still trusts in love and the belief that, no matter what, everything comes full circle.
