Book Review - Cache a Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner plus $25 Amazon/Paypal plus Signed Book Giveaway

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.

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 

"Geocaching - a game hikers play.  Someone registers the location of the box on an online site, indicates if it's an easy or difficult find, and lists GPS coordinates on where to find it.  The hikers look for the cache using a GPS device, sometimes buried, sometimes camouflaged."

Our Book Review
What a book!!  This will bring out your deepest thoughts, stirring them up and making your heart burst.  It will open your eyes to the dark world that many people suffer from whether it be alcohol / drug abuse, child abuse, mental illness and more.  On top of which comes the most cutest, loveable little girl, Quinn and her loving father Brett, who will melt your heart.

There's a predator on the loose with one mission on his mind - to rid the local area of pedophiles, to keep the children in the area safe so they don't have to undergo the same torturous childhood that he had gone through.  How does he do this and what body parts does he hide in the geocaching sites? You will have to read the book but be prepared for some 'coarse' words here and there, bringing out the true flavour of the mystery.

Officer Brett Reed, Quinn's father, along with his partner Clay try to track down the predator.  Yet Brett has worse problems to deal with much closer to home.  His addict of a wife sinks lower into despair whilst having custody of their only daughter Quinn.  His daughter is found in the street on her own and is taken into protective care.  You would think it would be a straight forward handing over to the father but no, it turns out to be the worst thing that could have happened.

The book shows how years of child cruelty can affect those in later life and how the suffering is passed on to their loved ones.  Personally it made me really think about how unfair the legal system is, and in this case how ludicrous it is when dealing with the custody of children towards fathers, it also brings to light frightening potential flaws in trusted protective services that will make may your skin crawl.

Get ready for the story twists, unexpected moments, the holding of breath and the emotional grab of this brilliant thriller, you won't want to put this one down.

  1. Thanks for the review, Sharon, and for doing such a fab job with my "tour!" Your "team" of reviewers are professional and supportive. I love that!

  2. As you know I loved thos book and you know who I was routing for in certain instances!! My heart did break for the father who truly loved and cared for his daughter.

  3. Wow, this sounds interesting! I don't think I've ever seen geocaching tied into a book before, either!

  4. I hope they catch the bad guy!! I hope this won't make me feel too sad but I'm hoping their will be light at the end of the tunnel.

  5. This sounds like a book I would really like! I love the idea of the child protection and using geocaching as well.

  6. This sounds like something right out of Law and Order SVU (which I plan on watching tonight!). Hard to feel bad for pedophiles who get whacked and dismembered. Thanks for the review. This looks like a good read

  7. I just read about this book recently, and it did sound intriguing!


Always lovely to hear your comments xx
