"Great romantic suspense"
Texas Ranger Jack Galway wants his beloved wife Susanna
back, but their separation continues as she lives in Boston
making "gazillions" though he has no idea why she left him
over a year ago. Their fraternal twin daughters Maggie and
Ellen seem adjusted flying back and forth between their
parents, but he wants the Galways to become one happy
Seeking solace Maggie buys a cabin in the New York
Adirondack Mountains near where her ancestors once lived.
She, her daughters, and her grandmother travel to the cabin
for a family getaway. However, former law enforcement
official Alice Parker sees the four females as the weapons
of vengeance against Jack who she blames for her troubles.
Alice destroyed a murder crime scene with clumsy police
work. To exonerate herself she set up a bogus witness.
Jack unraveled her sloppy work, which led to her spending
time in prison, her goal to become a Ranger lost forever,
and the killer getting free. Alice is coming to Upstate
The suspense of THE CABIN never slows down for a moment
as Alice begins her quest. The support cast to include the
twins (any fan of Jane Austen as the siblings are has to be
a warm character), granny, and several friends add depth to
the plot. The split between the lead couple seems
contrived and unnecessary adding little except to keep Jack
and Susanna apart so that Alice can facilitate her revenge
much easier. Fans of action-packed romantic suspense will
delight in Carla Neggers' terse thriller.
