|Waking Hours, East Salem Series #1
By Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson / Thomas Nelson
All towns have secrets. Some have demons. Welcome to East Salem, a sleepy town with a history older than America where things are just a bit off; where the supernatural bleeds into the everyday. And where a tragic murder mystery is underway. A high school girl is found dead in the town park; and where forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris wants answers. All the suspects were teenagers who were at the party with her the night before–who he last spoke with on their last high school date forever ago. Yet his celebrity status opens doors barred to Dani–so they form an awkward alliance. They soon realize that there’s more to the mystery than murder. And more to the evil they are facing than a mere human killer.
My Review: I’ll start by simply saying WOW! This book is amazing! From the opening scene the authors captured my attention and had me guessing from the beginning. Of course, murder mysteries are my favorite, but the authors not only give us a excellent main plot, but the secondary subplot is interesting as well and I’m guessing how the trilogy will be tied together. The main characters, Dani Harris and Tommy Gunderson team up to make a dynamic duo. I loved the interaction between them as well as learning their perception of their history.
The only I’m not crazy about in this story is the subplot. I don’t want to say too much about it, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you. Plus, it’s a personal feeling, my guess is many readers will love this aspect of the story.
