In The Rebound Effect by Linda Griffin, when Teresa Lansing meets SWAT officer Frank McAllister, a spark between the two strangers immediately ignites. Teresa is enamored with the handsome, somewhat mysterious new man in town. As their dating life heats up, Teresa is torn between being smitten with Frank to wondering why she is hesitant about moving forward. Her best friend wavers between telling her to be careful and calling Frank a potential abuser to advising her to move forward as long as she is happy. There is the added suspense of the local news about murdered women, and the suspense lasts until the very last page of The Rebound Effect.

The Rebound Effect by Linda Griffin is a suspenseful psychological thriller that did not disappoint. I read this story within a few days, not being able to put it down. I was riveted from the first page to the last. It flowed well, with plenty of suspense and moments of nail-biting as I read with anticipation of things to come. It was apparent almost from the beginning that Frank McAllister, the handsome and mysterious new guy to small-town Cougar, was a control freak. He wanted absolute control of Teresa Lansing, the vet assistant who was trying to move on from her cheating ex-boyfriend. When things became to get tense for Teresa, she started to pull back from her new relationship and Frank did not appreciate this new turn of events. Trying to balance her relationship with Frank, keeping her ex-boyfriend at arms’ length, and caring for her young son, events start to turn frenzied and out of control. The last third of the book was the perfect crescendo to this spellbinding suspense story.
