Silver Creek is known for its miles of pristine shoreline. Tourists flock every summer to partake in the water activities and fun in the sun.

But a sinister killer is on the loose. A killer who feeds off of young women's fear...and leaves a most unusual calling card.

Police Chief Nathan Sommers is on the hunt, but every road leads to a dead end.

Nathan is battling his own personal demons as he tries to cope with the death of his wife. Two years have passed since, but he feels her dying was a direct result of his actions and he is consumed by guilt.

 His personal life just became more complicated when he meets Katie, the pretty new owner of the bakery. Nathan slowly builds a relationship with her, but still struggles with Jenny's death.

As he draws nearer to the killer, everything in his life suddenly comes undone. He is forced to deal with his feelings for Katie and his love for his dead wife. (Goodreads)


Luckily, I started reading this early in the day because I couldn’t put it down until I was done! This story is full of mystery, suspense, guilt, love, reflection, and a whole bunch of other stuff that will have your emotions locked to the pages.

Nathan is a well-developed character that will have you feeling both hatred and hope. The flashbacks give you a deeper understanding of the man he was and the man he has become within the past couple of years. The secondary characters add so much depth to the story, but it really is a story about Nathan, so there doesn’t need to be too much depth to the information we need.

 The murder mystery will keep you asking who and why throughout the entire book. When we get to the whodunit scene I was glued wide eyed and holding my breath. Without giving the ending away, I just have to say it’s refreshing to read a story that feels like a real ending instead of always the happily ever after for the main character.

 Overall it’s a great, fairly quick, read that will have your attention from the first word until the last. There were a few errors, but nothing too distracting. This is a great read for you suspenseful types!
