Some secrets are worth dying for.
For months, Doctor Rowan Dupont has been staring death in the face. It followed her back to her hometown of Winchester, Tennessee, ten months ago, cloaking the walls of her family’s Victorian funeral home like a shroud. In investigating the mysterious deaths of her loved ones, Rowan has unearthed enough family secrets to bury everything she’d previously thought true. But each shocking discovery has only led to more bodies and more questions; the rabbit hole is deeper than she ever imagined.
Despite settling in to a comfortable life with Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan knows dangerous serial killer Julian Addington is still out there. She can’t let her guard down now. Not when she’s this close to ending his torment once and for all. But with a storm brewing on the horizon, she’ll get only one shot before the impending darkness takes hold, threatening to wipe away every truth she’s uncovered—and everything she holds dear.
The Darkness We Hide by Debra Webb is a great suspense book. The ending wraps up in a way that was wonderful. It left me feeling satisfied. The middle was where it really picked up in pace for me. Then, there’s the beginning that felt like it was dragging me behind. Debra Webb’s cast of characters were my favorite. Just the right amount of everything that made them pop out. From their personalities to their attitudes, I was hooked. The main protagonist’s relationship with her male friend finally heats up in this story. I was excited to see where that would lead. This novel was dark, mysterious, and kept me guessing-which is what I expect from suspense novels. The plot, once it picked up, was entertaining. From middle to ending, this tale was good!
