Publisher's Summary

Her Darkest Nightmare, first in an electrifying new series from New York Times best-selling author Brenda Novak.

The hunt for a serial killer...

Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only 16 when her own boyfriend, Jasper, imprisoned and tortured her - and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amarok, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community, even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.

Begins with an escape from her past.

Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amarok this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her - the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same.

    "Disappointing!!!!"

    This is a bad romance novel masquerading as a bad murder mystery. Very little substance to the mystery and an annoyingly tentative, whiney main character.

    "Shallow and Boring"
    What disappointed you about Her Darkest Nightmare?

    The characters were flat and unbelievable. The plot was silly. Too much crude sex talk.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator did a good job of differentiating male and female voices, but her rendition of the female lead was too breathy and helpless.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't finish it, which is rare.

    "Great Narrator"

    Thrilling plot and great narrator. Be warned this is a book about psychotics so it has some very gruesome scenes. Why to read, the relationships between the doctor and the state trooper. Reason it didn't get five stars, I never got a sense of the town and the town's people, as I did in the prequel novella. Hanover House is insular and as a reader I would have liked more interaction with the community.

    "Too repetitive"

    The story line was good just too repetitive. I skipped several chapters and didn't miss a thing!

    "Suspenseful"

    The narrator had an intriguing voice, and the story line was riveting. I couldn't wait to finish. I was so drawn in by the characters and it took me until the end to figure out the whole plot and twist which I enjoyed.

    "gut wrenching"

    I was o.k. with the reader. I kept listening because I wanted to get to the "happy ending". I'm still not sure why she had to have quotes from real serial killers and I definitely did not like the epilogue ! It would have been good to leave it as it was. With the quotes from "real" serial killers and the epilogue, I felt it was a little sadistic.

    "creepy and good"

    I loved the mystery, that starts out early. It also had great romance. It is a little creepy, but also really good. Voices were great.

    "More PLEEEZE..."

    You don’t wanna miss this series! Loved it and can’t wait for the next one!!! Main character is very strong, brave and admirable. Instead of giving in to her deepest fears, as a result of her past horrific trauma, she chooses to face her demons head on hoping to save future victims from the wrath of the sociopathic human monsters she studies at Hanover House.
