    One thought on “Beast of Stratton

    1. Natalie Vellacott on said:

      I read this through in one sitting for the "Christian Books Only Review Group" and only lost interest in the last few chapters which were a bit laboured. This is an unusual story attempting to deal with some of the issues of PTSD as a result of serving in the armed forces. I thought the romance that developed between two of the main characters was a bit unlikely but I still wanted to see how it turned out. I think more needed to be said about some of the fringe characters at the beginning of the [...]

      Miles has just arrived home from two tours on foreign soil to find his company has been hit by industrial espionage. The daughter of their main suspect shows up under an alias and Miles must decide if she is telling the truthor is a traitor like her father.This book is a gripping tale that is not one you can put down and come back to a week later. You will lose what has been happening and the pace of the whole book will be thrown off. It is face-paced and meant to be read in as little time as yo [...]

      Renee spins a tale of total intrigue! You'll be immersed in creeping through Miles Stratton's engineering firm with Aimee, who is determined to find her missing father. And discovers much more.Miles appears as an ogre, but everything is not as it seems. I love that this is based around a fairy tale. It gives you a structure of what the story is about, but spins you around unfamiliar twists and turns! It's a terrific read. Don't miss it

    8. Rachel James on said:

      I love the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, and this modern day twist of the story certainly does not disappoint! The novella is a good length, and I found myself turning the pages quickly to reach the end. It has suspense, romance, and a wonderful christian message interwoven that is not preachy or forced. Can't wait for more from Renee Blare.

    10. Lee Carver on said:

      "Beast of Stratton" is written with high emotion and dark mystery. Moods fluctuate dramatically within scenes. The industrial intrigue plot involves a missing senior employee, his beautiful daughter, and a wounded veteran of Iraq. The take-away passages are well done. This is a quick read with a well-resolved ending.

    11. Becky Smith on said:

      This was a captivating book with all of its twists and turns, suspense and mystery. One great line in it is: “Find your reason to live and hang on to it.” But this line made me laugh: “Did he practice at being a jerk or was it a gift?” A GREAT, easy, and fun book to read for all who like suspense, mystery, and twists. I won a copy of this book on Facebook, and chose to leave my own honest review to encourage others to read this fun book.

    12. Gina Burgess on said:

      MY REVIEWThere is a lot in this story to like. At times the story whooshes along so fast you barely hear the railroad crossing warning before the train has passed. However, other times it moves really slow, but the prose is staccato like high heels clacking along a cement platform. Character development is nicely done. You meet a young woman who has a mission to find out where her father is. You have to figure out that she's going undercover to the job where he was last seen. She's and architect [...]

      Since this is a 145-page novella, the reader is plunged immediately into the action and must learn the backstory as the narrative unfolds. Cryptic remarks and interactions between characters that suggest secrets and hidden agendas had me scrambling to try to figure out what was going on, who the good guys and the bad guys were, and how the past was impacting the present. The suspense of the first half builds to a heart-pounding last half as answers and danger begin to roll in. The mysteries of A [...]

      “Beast of Stratton” is a 172 page novella that takes the reader on a fast and furious suspense-filled ride. It is a story about betrayal, trust, forgiveness, and healing. Readers get an up-close and personal look at the sufferings of an injured military man who suffers from PTSD as he struggles to overcome the pain and flashbacks.In my personal opinion, “Beast of Stratton” is a good story that would have been even better in a full-length novel. I would have liked more background on the p [...]

    21. Joan on said:

      This novella has great potential. The writing is very taut and that means it is frequently difficult to determine who is peaking or doing the action. The book could have been fleshed out in many places. Because most of the action takes place in one day, there is little character development. The obstacle to the romance is PTSD but it is not worked out between the two. It is suddenly worked out a distance from reader awareness. The solving of the mystery is abrupt and is kind of out of the blue. [...]

      A good, quick read. fast paced. Suspence, Romance and very cute. Has a religious tone, but toward the end it seemed to be almost forced on to the reader where as the rest of the story it didn't feel as forced as the ending.
