Waking Hours

If you are looking for a great book that will grab you from the first page and keep you glued until you finally finish inhaling it in one sitting, then Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl is the novel for you, especially if your a huge fan of mystery suspense thrillers.

In this book, the reader is engaged in the first book in the East Salem Trilogy where an ancient evil has been awakened and a ritual murder appears to have happened amid horse farms and wealthy homes of northern Westchester County, New York. A high school party happened the night before the murder and the suspects are a group of teenagers with something to hide.

Investigating the murder is Danielle Harris, a local forensic psychiatrist who is working with the police attempting to figure out just what really happened. The only evidence so far is a boy's cell phone found at the murder site and a group of teens that have apparently passed out with no knowledge of what happened.

Dani Harris has teamed up with Thomas Gunderson, the local boy turned private investigator after a fatal accident made him give up his professional career in football. When an elderly woman sets of his burglar alarm on the night of the murder, mumbling words in Latin, and then attacks him with supernatural strength, he believes the two may be linked to one another.

I received Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and Net Galley for my honest review and LOVED it. I could NOT put this one down because in all honesty I couldn't figure out who did it and toss in some creepy supernatural stuff in the mix with nightmares and things that really do more than go bump in the night, you'll want to keep the light on when you read this one. This one rates 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion because when the writer can keep me glued to a book enough to make me want to finish it without putting it down, that's what makes it a best-seller in my opinion.

  1. sounds like a page-turner! I don't normally read this type of book but a good suspense sneaks it's way into my book list sometimes. I think I'll check this one out!

  2. Thanks for the review. My book club is working its way through Wiehl's books. Heart of Ice is up for our March meeting. With your review, we will probably put Waking Hours on the list of TBR.

  3. Sounds like one I'd like. Thanks for the good review.
