Dana is obstinate as she refuses to walk way without the truth while Jay is dedicated and caring in a town without pity. Oh, she has been out there, is well respected as a growing talent. She has a solid backlist of amazing tales; only, she just has that presence of an author ready to have that break out novel.
The Salt Maiden is that book. Her skill and flow of the prose marks her as a master wordsmith. She weaves an intricate plot into this eerie, sinister tale that kept me spellbound.

This simply is Colleen Thompson at her very best. The finely detailed characterization combines with an eerie exquisitely written landscape to make this novel a reading and re-reading pleasure… Colleen Thompson creates a romance that is reflective in tone through her portrait of the wasteland, adding a fresh intriguing vision to the genre. This fast-paced story drew me in and allowed my own curiosity to hold me captive until the very end.

I enjoyed this A very good read that kept my attention from the beginning. Felt a connection to the characters that I didn't want to put away. Feb 25, Sweetdeda rated it liked it Shelves: A good mix of romance and suspense. Wont make it on a favorites list but was okay. Will probably try another book by this author. Angie, the missing sister is a thoroughly unlikeable person though it's just through third person knowledge as she appears only once in the entire book.
She's a drug addict, an alcoholic and a chronic protester. On the other hand, Dana, the good daughter, is devoted to the family and when Angie's daughter's life is in danger cancer is determined to find Angie and bring her home to own up to her mistakes.

The town Angie lived in is filled with unpleasant people and Dana has a very hard time trying to get anyone including the sheriff to help search for Angie. There's some kind of conspiracy going on that even the new sheriff is unaware of and that Angie somehow got in the middle of which of course, leaves lots of suspects.
There is instant attraction between Dana and Jay the sheriff which is really the only thing keeping me reading. The supporting characters are horribly rude and ignorant and Dana's super rich mother likes to throw her weight around via telephone which is very annoying. I know she's Dana's mother but just once, I wanted Dana to tell her to shut up.

I bought this book for my phone using the Kindle App and one of those book deals. Normally I don't like romance but they can be fun to read on occasion. Combined with a mystery, I had very low expectations. It was just something to read.
The Salt Maiden by Colleen Thompson (2007, Paperback)
Boy was I in for a shock. Right away I was caught by the inter-weaving of journal entries, quotes and letters that marked each chapter. I felt for our heroine who, despite being a privileged heiress, is believable in her quest to do the right thing and find her s I bought this book for my phone using the Kindle App and one of those book deals. I felt for our heroine who, despite being a privileged heiress, is believable in her quest to do the right thing and find her sister. Even the leading man, with his PTSD raw and open, felt real. This is a book that can reach many genres. It is not a typical romance where every chapter has sex in it.
It is not a common mystery of who-dunnit when the crimes committed are simple and to the point. It is raw and dirty and complicated. Good Guys - I give a B, no one is perfect Bad Guys - I give a C, there was a little too much predictability and anyone can turn bad with the right motivation, or turn good. Sep 21, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: This is a good suspense with a little romance and sizzle popping up from time to time.
