Her Darkest Nightmare is book 1 in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. The events recorded in this novel picks up six months after the prequel, Hanover House.
The summer romance between Evelyn and Amorak has hit a snag. Evelyn is still struggling with issues of intimacy, which ended in her pushing Amorak away. Then one snowy night things between them changed, and I had the privilege to witness Evelyn be able to trust a man to love and appreciate her. Meanwhile, a killer is on the loose. Did a resident from Hanover House escape or is it a blast from Evelyn’s past? One thing for sure whomever it is, the person is smart and meticulous
There were parts of the story that moved slowly for my tastes. This was due in part to time spent explaining psychopathic behavior.
Figuring out the killer’s identity proved to be a challenge. There were several possible suspects, which made it difficult to pick the right one.
Not all the psychopaths in the story were incarcerated, as Evelyn would discover. The story showed that crazies often live and work among us.
Amarok had his work cut out for him as the only law enforcement officer in the town who had no experience with homicides. The town had not experienced a murder in ten years. Then to make matters worse the FBI did not believe the murders warranted their input and there was no help from law enforcement in Anchorage. I found this strange and unrealistic.
Evelyn had her share of challenges. Besides the killer taunting her, someone is determined to discredit her. I admired her tenacity, but her hang-ups regarding Amarok’s age became tiresome. A seven-year age difference is no big deal, but Evelyn did not see it that way.
This is my second time experiencing Therese Plummer’s narration. I enjoyed her depiction of the characters’ voices. The excitement, fear and suspense came through with clarity.
An intense read featuring likeable characters, a sweet romance and a complex mystery. Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this installment. I am looking to start the next book, as I am eager to discover what is in store for Evelyn and Amorak.
