TwoLipsReviews gave it 4.5 Lips! - "A Familiar Evil by Anne Patrick is a fabulously written romantic suspense which draws you in from the first page and keeps you glued to the pages until you reach the end."
Lynn at Books & More gave it 5 Stars - "Once again Anne Patrick has managed to write an edge of the seat thriller that is impossible to put down once you pick it up. I always find it a thrill to read one of her books as I know it will be cleanly written making it that more enjoyable and keeping me in suspense at the same time. Highly recommended."
B.J. Robinson gave it 5 Stars -" A Familiar Evil is a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat as a childhood monster continues to haunt and literally stalk Jordan. The characters are well rounded and provide realistic dialogue...This book held my rapt interest until the end, and I didn't want to put it down until I discovered who the killer really was. Red herrings keep you guessing, and I just love that."

Sherry at Love2ReadNovels gave it 5 Tickets - "A Familiar Evil is one of those stories that once you start reading you just can't stop. It has all the elements I have come to love about Anne Patrick's writing. Great characters, zippy dialog and lots of red herrings all wrapped up in 'edge of your seat' suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed Sam and Jordan. The interaction between these two was electric. I liked all the secondary characters as well, especially Devin. He's only 9 but what a little charmer he is. I loved all the advice he gave Sam. I enjoyed watching Sam and Jordan work through their issues. It was done in a realistic and believable way. The story keeps a steady pace then ramps up to it's nail-biting conclusion. As with all of Anne's stories, she keeps you guessing on who the killer is until the end. I love that! I highly recommend A Familiar Evil but be sure to set aside a block of time...you're going to need it. It's a great story! A thank you goes to the author for providing this complimentary copy for my review. "
Babs Book Bristro - "From the first page I could not put this book down...This fast paced mystery/thriller is a wonderful read. The book kept me guessing till the end. I was surprised at who the person turned out to be that was causing so much sadness and wrecking havoc everywhere. Anne does a wonderful job with the research and descriptions. It makes you feel like you are part of the team and are actually there in Thorny Creek."
