A Dark and Secret Place, Jen Williams

After her mother’s suicide, Heather turns home to try to make sense of it all. She’s not close with her mother, so it’s no surprise when dark secrets come to the surface. The longer Heather digs, the more danger arises.

That there was obviously someone spying on Heather was unsettling. What I didn’t understand was why she wouldn’t tell her best friend because it put her in more danger than necessary. The pacing gets a bit shaky towards the second half, but I don’t think it detracted from the book overall. Finally, the gruesome animal scene wasn’t really for me, but I’m sensitive to anything where the animal doesn’t come out the winner.

Heather was the perfect character to play amateur investigator because she had been through so much in her life. It gave her a firm determination to keep digging. The storyline hooks you from the start. Williams does well at creating a puzzling and dark atmosphere. Overall, this was an enjoyable read. Thank you, Crooked Lane Books, for sending this along.
