Rising Darkness By nancy Mehl

Back of the Book

Sophie Wittenbauer left her strict Mennonite hometown under a cloud of shame and regret. Certain she's left her past far behind her, she's now focused on her job at a newspaper and is shocked when she stumbles upon the name of someone she knew in her old life. But when she learns the man--a prisoner--claims a suspect from a decades-old unsolved crime is hiding out in the small town of Sanctuary, Missouri, she can't resist following the lead in hopes of furthering her career. 

Almost immediately upon her arrival, Sophie's confronted with a face from her past and fears her intention of using a false identity to investigate is doomed. But with the help of Sanctuary's charismatic young pastor, Sophie knows she's getting close. Will she be able to conceal the truth of her own past long enough to find the suspect before someone puts a stop--fatal or otherwise--to her investigation?

My thoughts

Oh, this is a good book.  Rising Darkness is the perfect blend of suspense and romance.  Great details make this book truly come to life, and scenes that will make your skin crawl with anticipation.  Sophie was an interesting character, and while I wished I had known more of her back story at the start of the book, I think it helped build the suspense that I didn't.  Being the 3rd book in the 'Finding Sanctuary' series, it has a lot of characters from past books, so I would definitely read at least the first book to learn about the town and the people who live there.  

If you are looking for a great thriller, look no further than this.  

I was given Rising Darkness for free from Bethany House publishing for my honest review.
