    One thought on “Paradox Valley”

    1. 'Paradox Valley' was like a cross between the movie 'Tremors' and some film from M. Night Shyamalan. This is a slow moving action sci-fi mystery thriller with a bit of romance and lots of love for a dogd some horses.Our leads are, Corey, a military captain suffering from PTSD and, Dana, a city girl escaping her less than dream like life by returning home to the farm she grew up on somewhere in Paradox Valley. The setting is in a remote location in Colorado near the Utah border where neighbors ar [...]

    2. This book was right up my alley. As a lover of Sci-Fi, I was excited about this book and it didn't disappoint. This is not your normal Gerri Hill romance book. This is a Sci-FI action-adventure, that only contains a small bit of romance. When you are fighting for your life, you don't have a lot of time to date.The two mains were Dana, a women who was visiting her family in the isolated Paradox Valley area, and Captain Corey from the military. After what appears to be an earthquake, takes out the [...]

    3. So this was my first Audible purchase in a really long time! I decided to do it because I have an hour commute one way a couple days a week. I've been listening to NPR non-stop and all this election business is making me way tense! Well, this book kinda didn't help! It was exciting and fast moving and I found myself not wanting to wait until my next shift to find out what happened! Soeven though I thoroughly enjoyed this plan kinda backfired!Really good sci-fi from Gerri Hill. A nicely told stor [...]

    4. I'd probably rate this one somewhere around 3.5 to 3.7.Tense. Violent. Bloody. Something longer than this might appear in this box tomorrow.--This one had a lot more point of view shifts than I expected. I think the opening bunch of chapters had a new POV with each chapter. If I hadn't read the book description, I'd have been lost as to which character I was 'supposed' to be caring about (answer: all of them. But mostly Dana and Corey).Fleeing a shocking and unexpected marriage proposal from her [...]

    5. Well this was different. Gerri Hill’s latest takes her supernatural series to a whole new level mixing paranormal, 1950’s scifi and a gentle romance which is definitely not the main storyline.Dana has run home to her parents’ farm in Western Colorado to escape an extremely premature marriage proposal. When everybody feels the earth tremble they assume it’s a small earthquake, and life goes on – except they have no power - the cars wont start and even the batteries are dead.A military h [...]

    6. Definitely not a fluffy romance, but a good story and very likable main characters (at least those who weren't possessed ;) It would be a good sci-fi movie with ass kicking female leads!People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow. (MIB [...]

    7. This story really gets you thinking "what's out there, are we alone". Corey and Dana as great main characters, but I think Miss Jean was a pretty strong character as well. The story was interesting and well written. In my mind I thought "wouldn't it be interesting if Corey wakes up at the end and this was all just a dream" guess that's for a different tale.

    8. I gave Paradox Valley a 4.25. I'm not sure what I was expecting with this book, but I trusted the reviewers (my friends who share similar tastes) before me not to steer me wrong. It also helps that I have 14 Gerri Hill books in my collection, 2 of which are paranormal, so I figured I'd be all right. That being said, the plot wasn't what I expected, meaning there was a lot more suspense than I anticipated. Perhaps I was looking for a good light read, or something more innocuous like her paranorma [...]

    9. Esto es una reseña a vuelo de pájaro. ¿Qué quiere decir esto? Que no necesariamente tengo que leer el libro a consciencia para saber lo que dice y es que, vamos, Gerri no es Umberto Eco. Sean realistas. No me pierdo nada si salteo la prosa tan amena, los comentarios pensados y profundos que llegan hasta lo más hondo del ser de una persona que tiene como corazón una estalactita (me gusta esa palabra) porque, he visto:"¿Qué puedo decir? Me duele el culo” dijo Dana ().Ooook, recapitulemos [...]

    10. This was certainly different from Hill's usual tales. I am a fan of her writing, I really enjoy her romances but of course I do enjoy her paranormal novels (keeper's cave and weeping walls). And I enjoyed this one as well. It was different and even scary at some points which I liked. I also enjoyed the open ending, there could vey well be a sequel to that story. The only little thing that didn't do it for me is the romance. I mean, both were great characters, but I just did not feel it. The char [...]

    11. I respect that this is SciFi, not romance. That said, the science part of the SciFi ismissing? And not in the there's no way this could happen scientifically sense. No, it was missing in the I really don't understand what kind of world the author is trying to build here sense. The fight the main characters were having was with a vague, very undefined enemy. That didn't make the story scary, it made it frustrating and a bit unfulfilling. I do suspect that we'll see these characters again from Ger [...]

    12. In spite of the highly improbable events that occur in this book, I still loved it. In fact, I've yet to read a Gerri Hill book that I didn't like. Loved Corey and Dana and I'm a sucker for stories that have dogs in them. We lesbians love our pets. Am I right?

    13. This was definitely different from Gerri's typical romance. She's done a few of these paranormal stories. She's just such a great writer. I love everything she writes.

    14. Is Gerri Hill the best lesfic writer out there? Probably not. But do I enjoy the hell out of her books? Yeah, I do. I reread a LOT of them. This will not be one of those.I loved the spooky/paranormal books that Hill has previously written (Keeper's of the Cave, Weeping Walls, and the short story version that led to Weeping Walls). That's not my genre, I don't search it out. But I enjoyed them. This book isn't quite in that vein, in fact it seems to deal with (view spoiler)[aliens (hide spoiler)] [...]

    15. I rarely write reviews on books here. Maybe I should start doing it consistently. I've come out of my shell here to just praise Gerri's Paradox Valley. I stayed away from it because the reviews I read said it wasn't typical Gerri and relied too heavily on the sci fi and not enough on the romance. I don't know what I was thinking because I love sci fi. I don't keep up with my lesbian authors all year around, usually once a year around this time, I poke around and see what they've been up to. I pi [...]

    16. I'm a Gerri Hill fan, at least I used to be when she wrote romances; I have several of them in my book collection. Then she moved on to mysteries, etc and I moved on to other romance writers. PARADOX VALLEY came into my hands recently, and I decided to give it a try. At first, I didn't like it much because it featured UFOs and dangerous extraterrestrials, and the two women lesbians had a relatively smart part in action that involved families in an agricultural area of Western Colorado. I kept re [...]

    17. I enjoyed this book, but it was far from my favorite Gerri Hill book. I have read most of the Gerri Hill books and a lot of them seemed a lot better developed and interesting reads. This book was interesting since it seemed to be more about the story of the disturbance in Paradox Valley, but I did not enjoy it as much as I enjoyed her other novels. When I am looking for a novel to re-read, this will probably one of the last Gerri Hills on my list. I would recommend one of her other sci-fi books [...]

    18. Creepy, and a little gory. This quasi sci-fi thriller entertains, but fails to deliver the romantic punch of some of Ms Hill's other novels. Missing is the sexual intimacy that is so characteristic of her romances. Now, to be fair, if this was written to be directed at a young adult audience, then it is perfectly balanced. Personally, I didn't really miss the graphic descriptions of sex, but it has been something I have grown used and, even looked forward to in her novels. All in all, a good rea [...]

    19. Great readOk I'm not one for syfy stuff and hardly ever read it however, I got it because it was a Gerri Hill book and I love Gerri's writing. I couldn't put it down. The twists and turns throughout the book keep you guessing, what's next!? If you are into syfy this is a must read. Even if your not I would recommend it!

    20. Awesome book, couldn't put it down once I started reading!Interessting story, good characters, as well as nice pacing!

    21. well i don't think i'll ever forget this book. it was definitely unique. and a bit scary O_Obut i really liked it and i loved all the characters! especially lucky!

    22. This is not your typical Gerri Hill love story and I loved it. This author writes scary so well. Great read!

    23. This wasn’t what I expected from a Gerri Hill novel, but I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so creepy and tense. The characters were likeable and bond well.

    24. There are so many elements to this book that would render it something I'd have never picked up had I known in advance but I genuinely enjoyed it. At one point fairly early on I considered putting it down and not taking it back up again, only to find myself cracking it back open a few hours later to find out what happened next. While it's not big on world building - the reader never knows more about what's going on than the characters, and the characters don't know much - this remains a definite [...]

    25. This mixes up some genre favourites quite nicely: a bit of mystery, a bit deadly, a bit of science fiction to spice up an otherwise classic Gerri Hill tale of girls (a tough one and a city one both a little bit emotionally bruised) hitting the trail, getting into trouble and getting it on. Shake it all together and you have a well paced and well plotted thriller that drew me along rapidly. Whilst the body count is high the heat count is low: this is a pure romance with an emphasis on family - wh [...]

    26. Deserves 10 Stars!!This book is brilliant. The author had me on the edge of my seat with anticipation, at times I wasn't sure if I should turn the page. It has adventure, mystery, suspense, friendship, and intrigue. The characters are excellent. The scenery exquisite. But the story is out of this world literally. I could not put it down. I'll definitely be reading this again. I really can't express how well written this is. Definitely open for a sequel (just a gentle hint!). Loved it, I want mor [...]

    27. Hill always tells a good story.Hill tells great love stories that usually involve a murder mystery or something along those lines. I was suprised t h at this book took a syfy route but in the end I still enjoyed the book.
