Waking Hours ~ Lis Wiehl

_140_245_Book.503.cover

In small town East Salem something frightening is coming to life. When a teenage girl is found brutally murdered, forensic psychologist Dani Harris is called in to unravel the mystery. With the help of her old high school crush, Tommy Gunderson, they set out to find out just who – or quite possibly, what – could have committed such a nasty crime.

I loved everything about this novel. From the author’s voice, to her interesting characters and suspenseful plot, you are not left wanting for anything but for them to solve the murder. I also found it fascinating that, despite being very devout, Tommy never thought twice about considering a more paranormal culprit behind the murders. In a similar vein, even though Dani is a psychologist and lives her life based in the reality of the facts at hand, she is only a tiny bit reluctant to take things on faith and ‘go with her gut’, so to speak. It was a nice and realistic view of how people of both faith and science can make room for things they normally wouldn’t for a common cause.

This was my first novel by this author, but I can guarantee that this won’t be my last. I’m hoping to read more about Dani and Tommy in the very near future.
