Praise for Wrong Number
Award-winning novel in the League of Utah Writers and LDStorymakers first chapter contests.
"Here's the exact way to turn an improbable plot into a rollicking
suspense novel, full of surprises and twists, and wonderful
"Christensen does a wonderful job of developing her characters. As
happens so rarely, I was able to close my eyes and imagine what each
character looked like. This is amazingly good writing. And you begin
to care about so many of the characters, without ever fully knowing who
you can trust. Christensen keeps you on the edge of your seat."
-- Jeff Needle prominent book reviewer from AML
"Wow! For your first suspense/thriller you smacked this one out of the park! I was very impressed with your storyline, your pacing, your characters, your attention to detail and accuracy, and your prose. I loved it! I read several books a year, and there are very few I can't put down when it's time for dinner or bed. Wrong Number is one of the few I HAD to finish. It was one of the few books I've read where afterword, I thought, dang, I wish I had written that! Congratulations."
--award-winning author Gregg Luke
"Rachelle Christensen has penned an exciting novel that will hook readers from the accidental discovery of a dead body to the thrilling and unexpected climax, with lots of twists and turns along the way. Don’t expect to get a lot of sleep with this one. If the thrills of the chase don’t get you, the thrills of the heart will. An excellent debut. I’ll be looking for more by this author."
Jeffrey S Savage, author of the Shandra Covington mystery series and the Farworld fantasy series
"With a gripping storyline and sympathetic characters, Wrong Number will keep you on the edge of your seat, the hairs on your arms on full alert, and your stomach in your throat until the very last page. But in a good way."

ToriAnn Perkey, editor
