5-Star Review of "Rising Darkness"

Review of Rising Darkness

Romantic Suspense to Keep Readers Guessing Until the Last Page


Sophie Wittenbauer left her strict Mennonite hometown under a cloud of shame and regret. After a rough childhood, her teenage poor choices harmed others, leaving her with no choice but to change her life. Her entry-level writing job at a newspaper puts her in the right place at the right time to overhear office gossip about a prisoner who has information on a decades-old unsolved crime. While the other reporters write off the tip as the ravings of an angry criminal, Sophie can't ignore it because she knows the name of this prisoner from her old life. 

Upon learning from the man that one of the other suspects is hiding out in the Missouri town of Sanctuary, she takes on a false identity to investigate and meets the young pastor of a local church--the very man she'd loved as a troubled teenager. As she gets closer to finding the suspect, will the truth of her own past come out before she discovers the identity of the criminal--or the very person she's seeking puts a fatal stop to her investigation?

My Review:  Oh my!  Nancy Mehl has done it yet again!  She has kept me on the edge of my seat and eagerly reading ahead to find out where Terrence Chase is and if the millions of dollars are truly hidden in Sanctuary.  I love love love reading romantic suspense novels and this one adds Old Order Mennonites to the mix...another exciting element to create a fascinating book!   Nancy obviously researches extensively as the details of the mystery are very believable and extremely intriguing.   Readers are sure to love this book and it doesn't need my recommendation as this book recommends itself!  
I rate this book 5 stars!  
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
