Blog Tour - Witness in the Dark Review and Giveaway


About the book: What began as a picture-perfect summer vacation for college student Jenny Brodie has swiftly become a nightmare. When she left home on the back of her horse one sunny morning, she couldn't have imagined what awaited her in the Utah desert. Now the darkness is closing in, and there is no way out.

The woman saw what he did—she witnessed the shots he fired, the murder he committed. But she'll never talk. He's made sure of that.

For a man desperate to hide his crimes, the pressure steadily rises as Jenny's community bands together to find the missing young woman. As the searchers grow ever closer to discovering what he has hidden, so too does his desperation. he will stop at nothing to keep the woman hidden—but he has underestimated the second witness to his evil deeds: a young girl determined to protect Jenny. As the trail runs cold, will help come for Jenny before time runs out?

My review: I love it when a book sucks me in so much that I don't want to do anything besides continue reading it to see what happens! This was one of those books for me.

I really loved Jenny's character! Holy cow, what an amazing young woman. She's the Bishop's daughter, she's been attending BYU, but she's home for the summer and willing to help out with whatever needs done, including teaching the 6 year old CTR class. I love the care and detail she puts into teaching these kids that she doesn't really know and I loved how later in the story, her teaching comes back to help her. 

Anyway, Jenny sees something that she shouldn't have seen and she ends up thrown down an old mine shaft. This is where her real character shows. I was amazed by how she was able to calmly go back through her memories to find out exactly what had happened to her and even why. I loved the way she still cared for Clara, enough really to lay down her own life instead of getting the sweet girl into trouble.

The plot of this one is great! I loved the whole thing and I loved how the whole thing from beginning to end fit together. This was a great book that I didn't want to put down until I had read every word!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Lynne Larson is an award-winning teacher and writer with a special interest in western history, particularly as It relates to women. Several of her stories, essays, and articles have appeared in regional magazines, as well as in Latter-day Saint publications.

Her novel, In the Shadow of an Angel, grew from her great regard for the pioneers who put the statue of Moroni on the temple long ago, never realizing the changes that would come as the golden figure watched over their Zion for the next one hundred years. Nor could those early builders fully imagine the generations coming after them, for whom the statue would be a beacon and a guide, millions of people, each with a life to live and a story to tell, and all connected by the angel on the spire.
