Are you a fan of highly exhilarating, high paced fiction? If you are, then this book, Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl is definitely one for your library. I’m one of those people who loves to judge a book by it’s cover. And the first time I saw this book, I thought I wouldn’t like it. You see, the cover wasn’t really inviting in my opinion, but I’m glad that I picked up this book.
I like the fast paced story and highly engaging characters and scenes that could spook me and gives me chills. Definitely one of those books that you wouldn’t want to put down until you reached the end of it.
I highly recommends this book to all readers who appreciates a high quality, fast paced plot kind of stories. I rate this book 4 out of 5. I received an ARC of this book from Thomas Nelson Publisher and I was not required to write a positive review for it.
Welcome to East Salem: A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.
A high-school girl is found murdered in a park in Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death confounds the town and intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris, who is determined to unravel the mystery. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girlâ€”yet no one remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afootâ€”something tied to an ancient evil?
But it’s not just Daniâ€™s waking hours that challenge her. Each night, her eyes open at 2:13 due to troubling dreamsâ€”dreams filled with blood, water, and destruction. Is it a clueâ€”or a sign?
Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his security system has been breached by an elderly woman who attacks him with preternatural strength. Before he can process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the high-school girl’s murder. He agrees to helpâ€”and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charms when they were in high school.
It will take astute analysis and forensic skills to solve the crime. But Dani and Tommy suspect there’s more to the mystery than murder, more to their growing friendship than chance . . . and more to the evil they’re facing than a mere human killer.
