Book Review: Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication Date: October 4, 2011
Through her work with the District Attorney's office, forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris is thrown into a case involving a female youth who is brutally murdered. Dani's former childhood acquaintance, former pro-football star Tommy Gunderson, offers his help as an upstart private investigator. Soon the two of them are racing to uncover the truth of what happened, before someone else dies.
Waking Hours was a fantastic read, a very promising start to a new series taking place in East Salem. The supernatural suspense was chilling, the plot tightly woven, and the dialogue swift. The relationship developing between Tommy & Dani was highly entertaining, and some of their dialogue had some memorable lines that were very humorous. I thought that all of the characters as a whole were well-developed and believable, and I am very thankful to know that I can look forward to meeting these characters in future works. I have to say that this is my favourite Lis Wiehl book yet, and while I’ve never before had the pleasure of reading a book by Pete Nelson, it is clear he is a talented author. I honestly found the plot to be flawless, and I have been left craving for more.
Waking Hours will definitely appeal to readers who love mystery and supernatural suspense. I highly recommend this book, giving it 5 out of 5 stars.
