When Megan confronts Rachel everything goes awry. There was a terrible accident and Megan believes Rachel is dead. When she tells Tyler what happened, he goes to Rachel’s house only to find her alive and well. Is Megan losing her mind?

Megan does become close with one of the neighbors but can she trust anyone in this town?

I read The Cold Kiss by John Rector and became an immediate fan of this writer. He just pulls you into the story and you keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. I wondered if it was just a coincidence with this one book or is John Rector that good of a writer. I decided to try another of his books – this one – The Ridge. It happened to me again. I was mesmerized throughout this book. I couldn’t wait until I had time to sit down and read the next chapter.

The Ridge is an eerie, creepy story. It reminded me of stories on The Twilight Zone. John Rector does an excellent job of keeping the readers guessing as to Megan’s sanity. The ending is quite a surprise – something I did not expect. The author does a wonderful job with the characters because you don’t know whom to believe. If you are looking for an intriguing book, The Ridge is the one for you. It never gets boring!
