I was given an ARC of Backwoods Ripper and although it isn’t my normal read, I must say it had me intrigued straight away. The tension was palpable throughout and the author does well to maintain momentum. There are some obvious nods to Misery and although the premise not a new one, I still found the story and the descriptions used diverse enough, especially the amputation scene. I am totally baffled by the title as, unless I missed the point, there was no ‘ripper’ to speak of.
I would say this is more of a 3.5 star but as Goodreads doesn’t do half stars, 3 it is.
