Her Winter of Darkness by Melinda Woodhall
Published: September 8, 2020
I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Melinda Woodhall is the author of the new Veronica Lee Thriller series, as well as the page-turning Mercy Harbor Thriller series. In addition to writing romantic thrillers and police procedurals, Melinda also writes women’s contemporary fiction as M.M. Arvin.
“The death penalty is his only punishment for a woman who betrays him.”
We are back with Veronica as she navigates her new relationship and blossoming career. Her mother is running for mayor, and as always, secrets are lurking around every corner.
The cast of characters we’ve met previously are back, and there is a new case waiting to be solved. And, of course, Veronica finds herself in the middle of the chaos. This book focuses a lot on Nessa, which was nice.
I love the female characters in these books. They are such strong, smart, savvy women. And it is so lovely seeing women supporting women. We got to know Tenley more in this book as well. And there is more to her story than we realized.
There were several twists and shocking plot points throughout this book, and they were so well done. The build-up was fantastic, and the drama was subtle enough to be believable. The way the story unfolds slowly sucks you in until you can’t put the book down.
This was another novel filled with secrets and exploitation, and our cast of bad-ass individuals must once again come together to stop a human trafficking ring taking place right in their own backyard.
I am enjoying this series. It is so well written. The characters are so well developed, and you get a strong sense that they are very loved by Melinda. I cannot wait to dive into the next book!
