Her Darkest Nightmare, first in an electrifying new series from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak
THE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER
Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only sixteen when her own boyfriend Jasper imprisoned and tortured her—and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amarok, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community…even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.
BEGINS WITH AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAST
Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amarok, this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her—the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again. . .and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same…
“Brenda Novak's seamless plotting, emotional intensity, and true-to-life characters…make her books completely satisfying.”—New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan
Lots of intrigue!
4 1/2 STARS!
The first full length novel in Brenda Novak's new series is electrifying! We're treated to a trek through the unknown as murder occurs in Hilltop, Alaska and scandal breaks at Hanover House. We're left wondering who the culprit or culprits are right up until the end!
Evelyn Talbot knows a psychopath's mind better than she ever wanted to, but she wants to know more. She has successfully opened Hanover House in Hilltop, Alaska which is the first facility of it's kind which she hopes will lead to great insights into the minds of the biggest criminals in the country.
Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok has been opposed to this facility coming into his quiet village, and he fears it's his worst nightmare coming true when a couple of mutilated bodies show up. He cares for Evelyn a lot and still wants a relationship with her even though she tries to keep her distance ... if he can help her figure out who is setting this all into motion, he will!
It seems like forever ago that we first met Evelyn Talbot in Hanover House but finally we get the first full story in the series! The thrills and suspense continues as does the relationship between Evelyn and Amarok. The slow easy build of this relationship is perfect. Considering everything Evelyn has gone through anything else wouldn't have worked. Evelyn and Amarok are still at odds over Hanover house though. Amarok thinks the facility is bad for his community and that belief is confirmed when a woman's body is discovered. Evelyn fears it isn't so much Hanover house but her own past catching up with her.
This is a highly suspenseful mystery with twists and turns that keep you guessing. And the ending - wow. Still have goosebumps! I definitely recommend this one.
An intense psychological thriller that will keep you turning the pages. Many twists and turns of who done it. Evelyn has a past that always keeps her on guard and now to be the psychologist at Hanover House, keeps her always looking over her back. Now when two of her friends are murdered, she is a little more than nervous. Love Amarok, the town trooper, who has the hots for Evelyn. Love how he is so patient with her.
Brenda must have done a lot of research and it shows in her story telling, I stayed up way late reading this book. I highly recommend this book!!
