Something sinuous in the water brushed against Paige’s knee. She jerked her leg away. What was that? She rose to a sitting position, groped around with her left hand. Fine wisps wound themselves around her fingers. Hair? She yanked backward, but the tendrils clung. Something solid bumped her wrist. Paige gasped. With one frantic motion she shook her arm free, grabbed the side of the hot tub, and heaved herself out. Paige Williams slips into her hot tub in the blackness of night—and finds herself face to face with death. Alone, terrified, fleeing a dark past, Paige must make an unthinkable choice. In Violet Dawn, hurtling events and richly drawn characters collide in a breathless story of murder, the need to belong, and faith’s first glimmer. One woman’s secrets unleash an entire town’s pursuit, and the truth proves as elusive as the killer in their midst. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 2/18/2014

    " This story about a woman in peril and the small town she tries to hide in was very well written. The characters were identifiable and helped me connect with the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda Browning White | 2/18/2014

    " I read this to gain a better understanding of what constitutes "inspirational suspense." A good read; I'll read the next in the series. Played well to my liking of mystery, murder and mayhem. Did a good job of tying in the Christian message without being preachy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 2/9/2014

    " Mystery Thriller with clean language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee Remde | 2/8/2014

    " I like that Brandilyn Collins is a Christian author. She writes suspense novels. Sadly, I fgured out the story quickly becasue it was very similar to the other Brandilyn Collins book I have read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen & Gerard | 2/7/2014

    " Violet Dawn is a double mystery! It has a murder mystery plot as well as a personal mystery plot. The author builds to a climax and then switches to another story line altogether and leaves the reader hanging. This pattern occurs throughout the book and kept me hanging on--kind of like a soap opera. It has both suspense and action that made me want to keep reading. I was hooked right from the start along with Leslie, the small town reporter looking for her big story. I recommend this to anyone who likes suspense or mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 2/6/2014

    " Excellent read. Keeps you on the edge of your seat! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie Snipes | 2/3/2014

    " Brandilyn Collins. What more do I need to say. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/2/2014

    " This wasn't a bad book, but there just wasn't much to it. It wrapped up too perfectly, too quickly at the end, and there wasn't much depth to it or the characters. In fact, there were too many characters thrown in. I know it was the first book in a new series, but having all the characters thrown in just to introduce them made the book feel a little cluttered and confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/20/2014

    " Imagine finding a dead body in your hot tub... and knowing that if you call the police all your own darkest secrets will be exposed, and you will wind up as the next dead body. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 1/17/2014

    " This book was recommended to me by a member of my church - she had read it for the Church Book Club. It is a good mystery with a few twists that I wasn't expecting. It was a very quick and easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Todd | 1/1/2014

    " This is the first book I have read by this author. I loved it and will be reading all of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 12/19/2013

    " This was a creepy, suspense, that made me want to continue reading to see what was going to happen next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 12/13/2013

    " Really 3 and a half stars. I liked some of it- clever idea- but parts bored me. Still a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/4/2013

    " This is the first of her books that I've read. I love mysteries but have had a hard time reading gruesome ones since I had kids. This was good for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 10/27/2013

    " A kindle freebie whose price soared. Pretty good book - keeps you interested but something was missing - a connection between the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 7/17/2013

    " I've read this before, but it had been a very long time. I just now got the rest of the books, so I had to read it again to refresh my memory. Brandilyn's books never take me long to finish because I always want to see what's going to happen next. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith | 5/29/2013

    " Adequate escapist fluff. Interesting that it is a Christian-themed suspense/mystery. I've never quite read one in that catagory before. Terrible writing but the plot clipped along nicely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R | 5/4/2013

    " Brandilyn Collins has what it takes to get the reader into the story right away. There is mystery and excitement that keeps me reading through until the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 1/31/2013

    " This book was stupid. I don't understand why everyone is giving it 4 stars. The writing is so cheesy with so many "you go girl!" sayings I wanted to strangle myself. The mystery was the only thing that kept me reading it and I still guessed it. LAME. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mapman | 12/19/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandi | 3/8/2012

    " This book is one of those that you just can't put down. Brandilyn Collins did an excellent job with this one and towards the end of the book when I read the "punch" I was absolutely floored! I highly recommend this book to anyone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 12/23/2011

    " Violet Dawn takes the reader through two mesmerizing storylines, until they ultimately collide. This is a fantastic technique that allows the reader to have complete prior knowledge. Very enjoyable to read. "
