had returned for many reasons. One of them was finally figuring out
who had killed her aunt Amelia, who she called Aunt Amy. She had
never believed that Amy’s death was accidental or suicide. Before,
Eve had turned to the police and Adam, but to no avail. Now she
would do this on her own.
had vowed to protect Eve, but she was one woman who refused to be
protected. He had tried to further investigate Amelia’s death, but
the fact that his own superior, the police chief, had closed that
case, Adam had little maneuverability for his investigations.
return of Eve comes unwanted attraction for both of them. For Eve,
Adam had spurned her and hadn’t trusted her about Amy, whereas Adam
had always desired Eve, but she was younger and he had his vow he’d
made to Amelia. As danger encloses around Eve and people start to
die, Adam makes another vow¾to
be as close to her as possible, regardless of her protests.
Darkness kept my
interest from page one. There was a diverse cast of distinct
characters that kept me guessing who-dun-it…and also kept me
wondering, who’s-gonna-die-next. I loved the romance between Eve
and Adam, but I did get annoyed with Eve’s insistence of
independence. Even with a stalker and other deaths, she’s still
saying she will handle it on her own. However, her history with
Adam and the police somewhat explains her stance. I will definitely
be checking into additional stories by Tess Harrison.
