Product Description

Product Description

Rachel de Luca’s uncanny sense of perception is the key to her success as a self-help celebrity. Even before she regained her sight, she had a gift for seeing people’s most carefully hidden secrets. But the secret she shares with Detective Mason Brown is one she has promised to keep.

As for Mason, he sees Rachel more clearly than she’d like to admit. After a single night of adrenaline-fueled passion, they have agreed to keep their distance—until a string of murders brings them together again. Mason thinks that he can protect everyone he loves, including Rachel, by taking them to a winter hideaway, but danger follows them up the mountain.

As guests disappear from the snowbound resort, the race to find the murderer intensifies. Rachel knows she’s a target. Will acknowledging her feelings for Mason destroy her—or save them both and stop a killer?

By The Demon Librarian TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm thrilled to say that everything I loved about book one in this series, Sleep with the Lights on (Brown and de Luca Novel), was back here in the second instalment in full force! It was a thrill ride from start to finish and everywhere in between. I loved it!

For starters, the tension surrounding the romance was delicious. Not an easy thing to achieve considering Mason and Rachel had been allowed to cave into their temptation in the first book (albeit behind closed doors! Grr!). Even so, their current "relationship" is just as enticing in its limbo state, and the reasons they think they shouldn't be together are tested to the limit in this book.

Also ratcheted right back up was the tension surrounding the serial killer that just. won't. DIE! It's incredibly well done, and definitely an interesting twist for a thriller. Although Rachel's reaction when Mason initially asks her to help out on the case is a resounding Oh Hell No!, it soon becomes clear that this new string of murders is definitely connected to the original transplant recipients, and that she will most likely become a target herself very soon.

I find it difficult to review mysteries since, naturally, you don't want to even hint at anything that might spoil another reader's enjoyment. Those Aha! moments are what they're all about, after all. But let's just say I was extremely pleased with how Wake to Darkness played out. It surprised the hell out of me. If you guess who it is before the end, then you're a much cleverer person than I am, because I did not see it coming but at all! I was miles out with my guesses!

To sum up, if you loved book one, this book is just as good if not better. I simply cannot wait to see how she ends the series!

A great read, not to be missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable 5 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read the first book in this series and enjoyed it, so was looking forward to finding out what happened next.
Whilst this book was still perfectly readable the plot was both predictable and at times unbelievable.
Don't let this review put you off reading the book, but it is not in the same league as its predecessor.

Love this writer and the Brown/ De Luca pairing. Not quite as good as the the first one though still a very good read. I look forward to more in this series and to finding out how their relationship goes.

This is a great follow on from the first book which i loved. The book sees the continuation of the tension between the two main characters as we the readers watch the story unfold...really very difficult to put down.
