by | May 16, 2022 | Books | 0 comments

Iris Jenkins has a seven year old son and has been living on the low for years now. Something happened eight years ago and she’s been afraid of her past coming to get her. She lives in South Dakota and works at a small town newspaper. Her boss is like a dad and Granddad and offers her a chance to run his hunting lodge. She agrees to check it out and when she gets there meets the caretaker Sawyer Jones and his 17 year old daughter (who interns at the newspaper). They fall for each other and things seems to be moving along. But Iris is hearing mysterious voices through a walkie-talkie and someone knows her past. Someone knows and it seems that someone is coming for her. Then her son vanishes and she comes face to face with her past in a shocking way. A well-written, tense thriller, with a twist you don’t see coming, that ties the whole story together. You won’t want to put it down.

You can pick up Iris In The Dark in stores on Tuesday, June 7th.
