Where Angels Rest [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Where Angels Rest" by Kate Brady.

Product Description


For the past decade, psychologist Erin Sims has been helping victims of violent crimes move on with life . . . but the one person she can't save is the one who matters most. In only seven days, her brother will be executed for a murder he didn't commit. Convinced she knows the identity of the real killer, Erin is determined to find the man and bring him to justice.


Sheriff Nick Mann moved to rural Ohio hoping to forget the tragedies of his past. When Erin shows up in town, bringing scandal and unwanted media attention with her, Nick knows she's trouble. No one believes sleepy Hopewell could harbor a serial killer . . . until residents begin to disappear. Now as Nick untangles the dark secrets plaguing his town, he can't help falling for the beautiful woman with the warm heart and iron will. And, as the days tick by, the truth becomes clear: Erin is hunting a vicious murderer-one whose only escape is to silence her forever.

My Review:

Erin Sims has been trying to prove her younger brother Justin isn't a murderer of a Senator's daughter.  She only has seven days before his execution to get solid proof and bring the real murder to justice.  She knows who the killer is and follows him to his new home under a new identity.  

It has been 12 long years that Erin has been gathering information and collecting evidence against Jack Huggins aka Jack Calloway who has now settled in peaceful and quiet Hopewell Ohio.  When she arrives she is met by resistance and people who believe she is crazy as a loon.

Sherrif Nick Mann likes the quiet life he has with his daughter and his friends.  When he was in a cop in LA he had his share of the nightlife and the bright lights of the big city.  He has suffered a personal loss and the most excitement he sees now is the occasional drunk and disorderly and robbery.  He's not too thrilled when Erin crosses his threshold and brings the attention and catastrophe when she accuses one of Hopewells finest citizens.

Now young women on the verge of destruction are suddenly starting to disappear and it's bringing back memories and feelings that Nick thought were long ago dead.  Erin is in the middle.

This book is a well written psychological thriller which is plot driven and fast paced.  It's filled with lots of twists and turns with a smart, determined and independent heroine that can keep pace with the hero and keep him on his toes.
