Dark Hollows by Steve Frech is an Adult Mystery novel of a dead ex-girlfriend back for revenge..
Jacob Reese enjoys the quiet life, running a coffee shop and renting out his cottage in The Hollows, Vermont.
But the calm is shattered when a woman who looks eerily similar to his ex-girlfriend Laura turns up to stay in the cottage, and leaves a mysterious note in the guest book.
Now Jacob’s seeing Laura everywhere—a glimpse of her face across the street, her music box left outside his house, a gift he gave her years before hanging from the trees.
But it can’t be Laura. Because Laura’s dead.
Someone knows Jacob’s secret—what really happened the night Laura died—and they’re out for revenge…
When the past comes to haunt the main character, we are thrown onto a shady mystery rollercoaster.
If you love stories of characters who may not be as they appear on the outside, this not-so-cozy, small town, cabin mystery is right for you.
I liked how this one had a sudden turn in the whole vibe of the book, creating just the right amount of suspense and creepiness to keep me reading. This had a solid buildup, but I would have liked to have seen more of a paranormal element rather than the psychological thriller it turned out to be. But, if I’m being honest, I had a feeling early on that it would take that route.
I gave this one a solid 4 out of 5 stars. This is definitely a character-driven novel, so if you are fans of that in your thrillers, Dark Hollows may be a great Fall read!
