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 and giveaway:
Nancy has done a fabulous job writing another book in this series. I really enjoyed the first two and now I add this one to the list.
Rising Darkness will have you guessing from the beginning about what really happened to Terrance Chase and what are Sophie’s wounds that are driving her?
There are some beloved secondary characters that you will come to care about as well. Sanctuary is a wonderful town that I loved visiting again.
Even if you haven’t read the first two books you can pick this one up. There are characters in this book from previous stories but they don’t really have too much of an impact on this story.
If you love a good mystery, suspense and romance I’m sure you will enjoy this book.
