Jenny Milchman - Ruin Falls
Sunriver Books & Music, Thursday, May 29 at 5:30pm
Thursday May 29th at 5:30 Jenny Milchman presents her latest, Ruin Falls. Liz thought she knew her husband well, a rock solid guy, uber smart, and used to being in control. Until the day her two children were snatched and everything she relied on is in question. The family had been off on vacation, taking 8 year old Reid and 6 year old Ally to visit their grandparents and spend time on the farm where Paul grew up in western New York. The grandparents have not been a big part of the children’s lives, Paul and his parents were estranged long before he met Liz. They spent a long day on the road, tiring as only a road trip with small children can be when it is hot, there are many miles to travel, and the landscape lacks the kind of roadside attractions to keep the children interested. Liz sank into her hotel bed exhausted, waking ready for another day in the car only to find her children gone. Panic sets in; Liz is ready to do anything to find her son and daughter. As time wears on, she realizes the man she trusted more than anything, may be her betrayer. There are so many secrets between them, Liz will have to be clever and pay close attention to find her children. One of the aspects I liked most about this book is the way the children were involved in their situation and took an active part in the story, plucky kids. The pace is fast, there is adventure, a bit of romance, and a unique plot.

Her earlier novel, Cover of snow, is also a fast paced, engrossing story. Nora husband is a copy, steady and brave. On a snowy morning she awakes to find he committed suicide. Everything she counted on and believed in changes. No note is left explaining why this man who loved his family, his job, his community would take his own life. When Nora begins to search for the reasons behind her husband’s death, people get nervous.

Both books are set in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. Nature and the landscape are enhance the stories.

Sign up to attend by calling 541-593-2525, e-mailing sunriverbooks@sunriverbooks.com or stopping by Sunriver Books & Music. The event is free, everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served and we will have drawings for prizes.

But when Liz checks in on her children the next morning, all her fears become reality–the children have disappeared without a trace. And though Liz quickly realizes what has happened to them, that is only the beginning of her nightmare,and her quest. Now she must get them back.

Author Event - Ruin Falls with Jenny Milchman
Avid Reader "Active", Friday, May 30 at 7:30pm
In a suspenseful follow-up to her critically acclaimed Cover of snow, Jenny Milchman ratchets up the tension with this edge-of-your-seat story of a mother determined to find her missing children.

Liz Daniels has every reason to be happy about setting off on a rare family vacation, leaving her remote home in the Adirondack Mountains behind for a while. Instead, she feels uneasy. Her children, eight-year-old Reid and six-year-old Ally, have met their paternal grandparents only a handful of times. But Liz's husband, Paul, has decided that, despite a strained relationship with his mother and father, they should visit the farm in western New York where he spent his childhood.

On their way to the farm, the family stops at a hotel for the night. In the morning, when Liz checks on her sleeping children, all of her anxiety from the day before comes roaring back to life: Ally and Reid are nowhere to be found. Blind panic slides into ice-cold terror as the hours tick by without anyone finding a trace of her kids. Soon, Paul and Liz are being interviewed by police, an Amber Alert is issued, and detectives are called in.

Frantic worry and helplessness threaten to overtake Liz's mind--but in a sudden, gut-wrenching instant she realizes that it was no stranger who slipped into the hotel room that night. Someone she trusted completely has betrayed her. Liz knows that Ally and Reid are safe, but she will stop at nothing to find them and get them back. From her guarded in-laws' unwelcoming farmhouse to the deep woods of her own hometown, Liz follows the threads of a terrible secret to uncover a hidden world created from dreams and haunted by nightmares.
