Hayden Moore’s life was destroyed when his husband, Malcolm, was murdered. Giving up his job as an assistant district attorney in Boston, Hayden moved to the little burg of Maplewood to recover.
A new life.
A fresh start.
However, something underneath the water is stirring. Something rotten. A deadly secret wakes underneath the black waters of Lake Veronica so disturbing it haunts the nightmares of the local residents.
It’s coming closer…
Review: Hayden has had his life uprooted in more ways then one. He was a up and coming prosecutor who worked to put the filth and evil away. He had fought the hard fight and it had cost him everything, including the love of his life. His husband had died that night and so did a part of Hayden. He quit his job after putting away the ones responsible for his husbands death. Then he went to a unique town that was beautiful as well as deadly. He had bought a home right near Lake Veronica but had not known of the past of how it had became that name. So many came to help in the fight, but one stood out among them all. A sexy young man named Tommy.
Tommy had spent his life as most teenagers did, getting into trouble. He finally left to join the military and decided his life was best lived alone. He had not expected to feel something for the man he helped with his house. Things heat up between them but so does the dreams. Paul came to figure out the tremors that seemed to be at center with the Lake. People around them were dying, drowning and it gets even more twisted. A father who hated and then died with grief in his heart, a young man murdered and the woman connected to them angry and full of hate. A demon arises from that hate and death soon follows.
When I was given this story it was among many of my holiday stories so you can imagine my surprise when this one was not one of those stories. I have not been a fan of horror stories whether in books or in movies. However this one just seems to pull you right in and keep you till the very end. It was very entertaining and I can imagine the nightmares will come after reading it. It definitely will do that to you. This author has one hell of a gift at telling stories.
I can not believe I am saying this but I had a blast reading this. I also noticed that it will continue in another story and I will be on the front line waiting for it. I was amazed at the heart ache, hate, love, and so much more that this story has going on in it. There is action, excitement, danger, death and horror all mixed in to one big story with much more.
I would definitely recommend reading this with a light on.
