Review: One Dark Wish


Her life must be forfeit for his to be redeemed

Historian Sarah Munro is not used to being shot at, but that’s just what happens while she’s poking around cemeteries on Georgia’s Isle of Grace, searching for the key to a centuries-old cipher. Her quest has unwittingly drawn the attention of two deadly enemies intent on destroying each other–and anyone who gets in their way.

Ex-Green Beret Major Nate Walker is on a mission of his own: to restore the honor of his men. To do that, he is required to stop Sarah–or one of his own men will die. Caught in the middle of a deadly rivalry, Nate can’t afford to trust the woman standing in his way. But his heart says he can’t afford not to…

One Dark Way by Sharon Wray is an interesting concept for a romantic suspense novel. I loved half of this book and the other half was not bad but not superb. It’s not necessarily the first or second half. Just half of the book’s content was amazing and the other part was not as great. I liked how the men in this book were former military men and how they were like brothers. Second, I enjoyed the fact there were two groups that were in a middle of a war with each other and dragging in the main characters into their problems. It created a super web of suspense, intrigue, and casted a dark deadly shadow everywhere. However, the plot pacing was not phenomenal. Using for this genre, the pacing is a bit quicker and more enjoyable. I found myself wanting to just stop reading the book after a bit. But then, I would not know all of the whys, who’s, and how it all ended. The story was dramatic maybe, too much. The suspense was there. Plus, the chemistry and blooming romance between the heroine and hero was all there. I liked that the hero was flawed. Yet it felt like he gave up fighting and was content just knowing his woman was safe. He did not fight to be with her the way most heroes would. So, that was one of the parts that just did not sit well with me especially as a reader huge on romance. All in all, it was a good read. I did not read the first book in this series, and I was able to follow along perfectly. I really liked that about this novel. Therefore, some really cool aspects and some not cool aspects were in this tale.
