On the blog today I have a review of Dead Season by Tessa Wegert for Suzy Approved Book Tours.
About The Book:
Release Date: December 8, 2020 Berkley Publishers
Senior Investigator Shana Merchant has spent years running from her past. But she never imagined a murder case would drive her to the most dangerous place of all—home.
After leaving the NYPD following her abduction by serial killer Blake Bram, Shana Merchant hoped for a fresh start in the Thousand Islands of Upstate New York. Her former tormentor has other plans. Shana and Bram share more than just a hometown, and he won’t let her forget it. When the decades-old skeleton of Shana’s estranged uncle is uncovered, Bram issues a challenge: Return home to Vermont and solve the cold case, or the blood he spills next will be on her hands.
As Shana interviews members of her family and the community, mining for secrets that could help her solve her uncle’s murder, she begins to realize how little she remembers of her childhood. And when Bram grows impatient and kidnaps again, leaving a trail of clues Shana alone can understand, she knows his new victim will only survive if she wins the psychopath’s twisted game. In order to solve one mystery, Shana must wade into her murky past to unravel another.
Miss W’s Review:
The Dead Season by Tessa Wegert is an edge of your seat thriller. I went into reading this book not knowing that this was the second book in the series. I think I would of understood the main character, Shana Merchant a little bit more if I had. I really liked this book and I will go back and read the first book in the series. Shana is on medical leave after something that happened in the first book so traumatic that she is waiting to be reinstated to go back to work. The story line alternates between the past and the present as it relates to events and secrets and this is very well done. Shana’s uncles body turns up after being missing for 20 years. This was a great page turning thriller. I highly recommend it!
