My Thoughts

Evil lurks just beyond the shadows and soon Sarah will no longer be able to run.

Sarah Summers lost her family so long ago to an unknown evil that haunts her to this day. Now she just wants to forget and make the best of her future with her son. Financial hardships and a divorce forces her to go back home to the nightmare she once knew. At first things go well she even meets a police detective named Ben who falls for her. However, it doesn’t take long for fresh visions of bloodshed and death to appear and she prays that they will not come to pass. No amount of praying works and the murders begin again now she must fight for not only her life, but the life of her only remaining brother and son. With the help of Ben and her brother Jim will she make it out alive?

This hauntingly thrilling story had me on the edge of my seat and anxiously anticipating each turn of the page. The chilling descriptions and frightening scenes make this story a must read for lovers of murder mysteries.

Sarah is a brave and strong willed mother who has been through a lot, but endures to protect the ones she loves. I liked getting to know her more and really felt for her when everything came crashing down. She grew so much throughout the book and I really admired her for it. Facing your fears is no easy task and yet she did it to save those that she loved most.

Ben was a sweet man and I liked him. The fact that he was willing to help Sarah in her darkest time really showed how brave and noble he could be.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who would enjoy a frighteningly chilling story of a mother’s love and facing your fears.
