When reclusive novelist Senna Richards wakes up on her thirty-third birthday, everything has changed. Caged behind an electrical fence, locked in a house in the middle of the snow, Senna is left to decode the clues to find out why she was taken. If she wants her freedom, she has to take a close look at her past. But, her past has a heartbeat... and her kidnapper is nowhere to be found. With her survival hanging by a thread, Senna soon realizes this is a game. A dangerous one. Only the truth can set her free.
Senna Richards is reclusive and unhappy.  She is also an extremely successful and accomplished writer who lives in Seattle.  Abandoned by her mother at an early age and all but forgotten about by her father, it is no wonder that she is incapable of having any loving relationships or stable friendships.  She is just bitter, dark and alone.  

Eventually, she does manage to have one successful relationship with Nick, another author, until he wanted to get married and then she broke his heart and left him.  
Seconds after tragedy strikes her life, she meets Isaac.  He is a young, handsome doctor who has an instantly strong connection with Senna.  He has a growing concern for her and keeps showing up day after day to help her and to just be with her.  He cannot seem to stay away.  He is drawn to her and wants nothing more than to fix her broken heart and soul.  But that is the last thing Senna wants and is constantly pushing him away.  

But this synopsis is only part of this thrilling story.  
On her thirty-third birthday, Senna is abducted and wakes up in a house in the middle of nowhere in a snow storm with no way out.  Sorry, but that’s all I’m saying about that because I would never want to give anything away.  But while you are reading this page turner, you will start to think you know what’s going on and you may begin to come up with several theories of your own.  Well, I just have to say that I highly doubt you will be right.  This one really had me guessing at every corner.  I wanted to know who and why and I just could not put it down. 

After reading Mud Vein, I secretly think Tarryn’s real last name is King.  This powerful, gripping and suspense-ridden novel is every bit as provoking as a Steven King novel to me.  And that is a huge compliment in my opinion.  Really superbly written.  Tarryn Fisher has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I am pleased to say that I have read all of her novels to date. 

FYI… Mud Vein has a character crossover in Tarryn’s newest novel Marrow, which is also a terrific novel and one that I recently reviewed as well.
