Cache a Predator Review & Giveaway

Cache a Predator is a geocaching thriller about a father’s love, justice, and the unhinged game of hide-the-cache.

Officer Brett Reed will do anything to gain custody of his five-year-old daughter, Quinn. But when a judge grants Brett's drug-addicted ex-wife custody and slaps him with a protective order for losing his temper, he fears for Quinn's safety. Who will protect her now?

When Quinn is found abandoned on the streets, she's placed in a temporary foster home until Child Protective Services can complete an assessment. It should only take a few days.

But a lot can happen in a few days.

Especially when there's a deranged psychopath on the loose, someone who's attacking pedophiles, someone who wants to protect children like Quinn, and someone who's planting body parts in geocaching sites.

This book is hidden in cache sites all over the US and Canada with the goal for it to travel to all 50 states. It’s mission is to spread awareness of child abuse and how it harms victims, families, and communities.


Oh how I love a good mystery and this one definitely fits that bill.  This one is well written, and reminds me of watching one of my favorite crime shows.  You can visualize everything in this story, even for someone that has never done any or knows anything about geocaching.  You will become irritated when you have to take a break to get stuff done, because all you will want to do is to keep reading.  I hate these "commercial breaks" just like I do when watching my favorite shows.

I have read some of Michelle Weidenbenner other books including Scattered Links, and part of her children's books, Eclair series.  I love all of her books but I really love her adult books, including this one.  She has an innate ability to draw the reader in, and getting the reader to empathize and genuinely care about the characters.  They are so realistic.  She brings emotional events to life.  You won't know what is real and what is fiction.  I don't know if this book is based on real events but it definitely feels like it could have happened.

I give this book 5 stars.  I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends and readers.  This book is not appropriate for all audiences.  Some of the situations deal with abuse including sexual abuse.  Then, of course, the crimes themselves are not for the feint of heart or squeamish.  However, the author deals with the subject matter without sensationalizing or trying to shock the reader.  It is done in a tasteful way if that is possible.

"The author has developed her innate talent to frame events with a clarity and color that keeps the reader anxious to turn the page to get to the next level of interest."

""This book is like watching Criminal Minds or Law and Order." 

Midwest Review said, "Any who look for deep psychological elements in their mysteries will find this a satisfying read, moving beyond the usual one-dimensional focus on mystery to reach out and tweak the reader's heart." - D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer

  1. She definitely drew me into this one and I couldn't put it down either. I too fell in love with some (not all) of the characters, but that will become apparent when you have read it ;-)
