Cache A Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner

I received a free copy of Cache A Predator written by Michelle Weidenbenner to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours. No other financial compensation was received and, as always, all opinions shared are 100% mine.

Cache a Predator is a geocaching thriller about a father’s love, justice, and the unhinged game of hide-the-cache.

Officer Brett Reed will do anything to gain custody of his five-year-old daughter, Quinn. But when a judge grants Brett’s drug-addicted ex-wife custody and slaps him with a protective order for losing his temper, he fears for Quinn’s safety. Who will protect her now?

When Quinn is found abandoned on the streets, she’s placed in a temporary foster home until Child Protective Services can complete an assessment. It should only take a few days.

But a lot can happen in a few days.

Especially when there’s a deranged psychopath on the loose, someone who’s attacking pedophiles, someone who wants to protect children like Quinn, and someone who’s planting body parts in geocaching sites.

This book is hidden in cache sites all over the US and Canada with the goal for it to travel to all 50 states. It’s mission is to spread awareness of child abuse and how it harms victims, families, and communities.

My Review of Cache A Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner

I. Loved. This. Book.

Hmmm….perhaps you need more details for my review, eh?

Let me first say, I am a Law & Order buff. If I’m not watching Law & Order, I’m watching Criminal Minds. If for some reason neither one of those are on, I’m watching a spinoff of some sort.

Cache A Predator was a great literary mix of my favorite crime shows! It had a plot that sucked you in from the start, great characters and a mystery that keeps you turning the page until you get to “the end”.

The subject matter is an emotional one – sexual abuse, the crime, the want/need for vengeance, the healing, the emotions. It’s raw and it’s deep.

It’s a winner!

This is one of the more emotional and raw novels I have read recently and it totally took me on an emotional roller coaster.

Buy the Book From:  Barnes and Noble

“The author has developed her innate talent to frame events with a clarity and color that keeps the reader anxious to turn the page to get to the next level of interest.”

“”This book is like watching Criminal Minds or Law and Order.”

Midwest Review said, “Any who look for deep psychological elements in their mysteries will find this a satisfying read, moving beyond the usual one-dimensional focus on mystery to reach out and tweak the reader’s heart.” – D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer

Nice review! I am so glad you were able to enjoy this book. I don't watch telly shows too often, but I do enjoy Law and Order, and all those other crime solving shows too, which makes me think that this book is probably for me as well!

Hi Michelle. Great name! Ha. Thanks for reading Cache and sharing your review. I'm glad you liked it. I wrote the first 50k words of this novel in 30 days during NaNoWriMo so I'm a huge advocate for NaNo. It works. The book wasn't ready to share though. It was a very rough draft. It takes a long time and lots of edits to get it ready to publish.

Thanks for all you do for authors.

I was with you on that roller coaster too, quite a dark mystery but I totally loved it and the way it brought certain things to light.
