ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
In addition, Brandilyn’s other latest release is Final Touch, third in The Rayne Tour series—young adult suspense co-written with her daughter, Amberly. The Rayne Tour series features Shaley O’Connor, daughter of a rock star, who just may have it all—until murder crashes her world.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University’s Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases—especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn’t exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings—which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment.
One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme—or their young daughter will be next.
But Janessa’s marriage is already rocky. She’s so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all.
Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa.
“A taut, heartbreaking thriller. Collins is a fine writer who knows how to both horrify readers and keep them turning pages.”
“Tense and dramatic. Holds its tension while following the protagonist in a withering battle.” –NY Journal of Books
“A frightening and all-too-real scenario. Very timely and meaningful book.” –RT Reviews
“If you know someone who suffers from Lyme, you need to read this compelling novel.” –Lydia Niederwerfer, founder of Lyme-Aware

Over the Edge is somewhat different than the other books I’ve read by Brandilyn Collins (and I think I’ve read them all). Using her fertile imagination, Collins has taken her very real life experience with Lyme disease and turned it into another one of her trademark Seatbelt Suspense novels. In many ways, Over the Edge may be more frightening than any of her other books simply because it details a nightmare that could strike any one of us at any time. And the medical system that most of us trust to have our best interests at heart may just let us down.
When I learned that this book was to be different from her others, I was afraid I might not like it. That fear was put to rest before I finished the first chapter. Brandilyn has what it takes to hold my interest no matter what she writes. The book description and book trailer above give sufficient information so I won’t elaborate and take a chance on being a spoiler. Just take my word when I say that Over the Edge is a must read book. It might even be one to share with your doctor.
