Review - Dark Corners
Ella Reynolds knew from the first moment she walked into the old house someone or something was watching her. Waiting. Her husband's violent murder sent her spiraling into a world of grief and isolation, but Ella isn't alone. Who or what is responsible for her husband's death is still with her. Darkness has engulfed the past year of Ella's life. Everyday reality slips a little more between her fingers as she struggles to break free from her memories. She must look deeper into her past as well as the present to discover truth of her husband's homicide. A string of uncanny events takes place and practical explanations run thin as Ella follows the terrifying road to closure. As the past and present come to a head, Ella must decipher who or what the murderer is before it takes her as well.
I was drawn into this story almost immediately. It was a great suspense filled story, filled with twists and turns.
You really dont know what to believe until the end of the story. Is Ella crazy, is someone making her that way, or can it really be that the house is haunted.
The story flows so well you are never lost, even in the memories or flashback scenes. You really feel for Ella and hope that she does either get away or figure out what happened to her husband.
The supporting characters were good, you get to know the most about the detective that investigated the murder, and while his past and situation do raise some questions. He is still a great character. Although I would love another story where we do learn a bit more about what made him leave the city.
If you are looking for a good thriller/suspense novel with a hint of a haunting. This is one not to miss. I look forward to reading more from this author soon.
