Southern rock star Rick Chamberland heads home to Louisiana to visit his mother. While there he meets Song Peters, a singer and waitress from a local bar. He’s immediately attracted to her, but their union could spell tragedy as dark family secrets threaten their lives.


Freakquency has the components to be an interesting book, but wound up feeling incomplete. It had a good set up with Rick Chamberland, who heads back home to Louisiana to visit his mother after the family dog had died. There is something off about this family and Rick and his mother have a strange, disturbing relationship.

Rick meets a Song Peters, a singer and waitress in a local bar, and he’s immediately attracted to her, especially her talent. Brown brings these two together in a realistic, unforced manner, but then the book winds up rushing toward an ending, and missed some important moments between Rick and Song.

Freakquency was dark and focused on black magic and the occult. Part of what made this book frustrating was that the family secrets seemed pretty important, and the ones who would be affected by them the most were the ones kept in the dark the longest.

It seems as though this story is not finished as Brown may want to continue their stories in other books. However, there were some gaps that should have been filled in.


There are erotic scenes.
