I am in such a Thriller\Mystery right now that I am digging through the web trying to find more and more series to dig into. That is how my Urban Fantasy obssession started years ago and like it, I don't see this newest obssession ending anytime soon.
Cruising through Netgalley, I came upon Wake to Darkness and when I saw it was from Maggie Shayne, a Thriller author I have enjoyed before, I had to have it.
Of course, my OCD didn't allow me to read Wake to Darkness before reading the previous novel, Sleep With the Lights On and the previous Novella, Dream of Danger. I did, loved them and will be revieweing them next, I promise.
But now, let's get back to the novel at hand. Wake to Darkness is a great follow up for this series and I personally felt that it was an improvement of the ones before, and I really liked them too.
I do recommend reading these in order, since the mystery in Wake to Darkness is directly related to the events in Sleep With the Lights On. I promise you won't regret it!
I am in love with Brown and De Luca. Not only is Rachel De Luca a great heroine, but is a bit of unusual one as well, which I love! She is cranky, annoying and obnoxious at times, but Maggie Shayne does some crazy literary magic and makes her lovable nonetheless. I love Rachel's back story. She was blind for most of her life, but got her eyesight back in the first novel of the series. I love following her and how she sees the world as if for the first time, it's exhilerating!
Mason Brown is a great hero as well, quite imature emotionally, but so is Rachel and I do see a lot of potential for them both.
The mystery is thrilling and don't worry, it does not take a back seat to the romance at all.
I hope we get more books in this new series by Maggie Shayne, because I am utterly hooked!
