Waking Hours Review
“A high-school girl is found murdered in a park in Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death confounds the town and intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris, who is determined to unravel the mystery. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl—yet no one remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot—something tied to an ancient evil?”
Dani runs into Tommy whom she had a major crush on in high school but she thought he didn’t even know she existed. After a football injury ends Tommy’s NFL career he decides to study to become a private investigator. When Dani is assigned to the town’s mysterious murder her friendship with Tommy begins to grow. Will they make a love connection? Will they be able to solve the murder with all of its strange twists and turns?
If you like books written by Ted Dekker or Frank Peretti you will enjoy Waking Hours: An East Salem Novel written by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson. Although Waking Hours isn’t exactly written like A Dekker or Peretti novel. It doesn’t have the same type of symbolism but it is similar. Dekker and Peretti’s novels have a much deeper spiritual meaning. Waking Hours has more realism and less symbolism. It is in the realm of a crime mystery with some spiritual things happening. This book kept me interested to the very end. I read it quickly and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to more books in this series .
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes crime novels. I received this book from www.booksneeze.com in exchange for an honest review.
