"Waking Hours" by Lis Wiehl

    What happened at the party? Why can't anyone remember? These are just two questions forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris has when she begins to investigate the murder of a high school student. This was no ordinary murder, but rather a ritualistic killing. How could something like this happen in East Salem, NY? It is normally a quiet place. Tommy Gunderson (former pro-football player) also wants to know because not only does he want to be a PI, but one of the suspected students has asked for his help. Things get really spooky and eerie as Dani and Tommy work to unravel the mystery. As they work to find the killer, will they rekindle their high school romance? Come along and help them solve the murder and find out what happens between them!

  Lis Wiehl has done it again! This is the first book in a promised "East Salem" trilogy. The characters and events are realistic and the writing is superb. I was drawn in from the start and didn't want the story to end. I can't wait for book number two! I recommend this and Ms. Wiehl's "Triple Threat Series" to anyone who loves a good mystery. Many thanks to NetGalley for the copy I read on my Nook.

  1. I really enjoyed reading this book, even though it was somewhat creepy. It was a great reminder that evil does exist in this world, and is actively seeking to destroy what is good. I loved the main character, Dani, and genuinely felt scared for her when weird stuff would happen. All of the characters were very well developed and realistic because they didn’t always do what you’d expect. I also loved the little romance part of the book.
