The Familiar Dark by Amy Engel

Who wants to read a new spellbinding tale?! 🙂

Thank you Dutton for my gifted e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Set in the poorest part of the Missouri Ozarks, in a small town with big secrets, The Familiar Dark opens with a murder. Eve Taggert, desperate with grief over losing her daughter, takes it upon herself to find out the truth about what happened. Eve is no stranger to the dark side of life, having been raised by a hard-edged mother whose lessons Eve tried not to pass on to her own daughter. But Eve may need her mother’s cruel brand of strength if she’s going to face the reality about her daughter’s death and about her own true nature. Her quest for justice takes her from the seedy underbelly of town to the quiet woods and, most frighteningly, back to her mother’s trailer for a final lesson. 

This may be a dark book, but it is a super well written thriller! Wow! I could not put it down! You are fighting the entire time for the girls to get what they deserve. By golly, get ready to go along for the wild ride! There were so many twists that I couldn’t predict that the next book I read is going to have a lot to live up to! Read this at night with the lights on if you dare 🙂

5/5 Stars
