Synopsis by Goodreads
Waterton is a town with dark secrets, and after a summer of murder and mayhem, American ex-pat, Rich Evans, knows exactly how far people will go to hide them. Jobless after the fiery destruction of the hotel he once managed, Rich is charged with arson. Only one person, local mechanic Louise “Lou” Newman, believes in his innocence. But even Lou’s love and support can’t dispel the darkness that’s spreading through the community. Dead animals appear on porches, strangers threaten the safety of the locals, and a fingerprint from the fire is linked to a decades-old murder.
The lonely border town has a new danger: a murderer willing to do anything to protect a web of secrets that links them to the arson.
As the risk of jail or death increases, Rich turns to Lou for guidance and she finds herself in an impossible position. Lou has her own secrets! Does she protect the border town where she grew up, or side with the man she loves… even if it means she can never tell him the truth about herself?
Can someone please make a TV show out of this Trilogy? It would have the most breathtakingly beautiful setting, with eerie landscapes that would just elevate the suspense of this great story.
This second instalment of the Waterton series takes you back to where Edge of Wild left off. We go back to Rich, Lou and also the locals who are as closed off as before. Events from the previous book are still affecting the small border town and getting in the way of the epic romance that it is Rich and Lou. #Endgame
I really couldn’t put the book down once I started. The way Stone writes suspense is amazing and really keeps you on the edge the whole time. At times you think you got it and then BAM! You realise that it wasn’t quite what you thought.
Even though the story moves a bit more onto the romance of our main characters, it doesn’t deviate from the main theme which is ‘WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?’ I mean mystery!
I can’t wait to see what Stone has in store for us with the last instalment! I kinda need it right now!
There is dark secrets, suspense, murder and mystery with sprinkles of romance. All set in a beautiful small Canadian town, so what are you waiting for? Go get it!
The Dark Divide by D.K. Stone is available in paperback and e-book and you can get it now on Amazon(affiliated link).
Thanks Danika Stone for sending me a paperback copy (and amazing book swag) of The Dark Divide in exchange for my honest review.
