Lis Wiehl – Waking Hours

Published January 14, 2012 by Hollys~BookShelf



Welcome to East Salem. A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.

A local high-school girl is found murdered in a park amid horse farms and wealthy homes of northern Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death confounds the town and intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris, who is determined to unravel the mystery. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl-yet none remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot-something tied to an ancient evil?

But it’s not just her waking hours that challenge Dani. Each night, her eyes open at 2:13 due to troubling dreams. Dreams filled with blood, water, and destruction. Is it a clue-or a supernatural sign?

Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his state-of-the-art security system has been breached by an elderly woman. Mumbling threats in Latin, she attacks him with an uncanny, preternatural strength. Before he has time to process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the girl’s murder at the park. He agrees to help-and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charms years ago when they were in high school.

 What I thought :
  First of all I have to say I enjoyed all of Lis Wiehls novels. she is a great author.
Reading the back of this book got me pretty excited to read it and dive right in. I Love her writing style.  I enjoyed the pace of the book and the suspense was right on. It takes you to the very end to really come to a conclusion of all that is going on. The character of Tommy was nice, He seems like a pretty easy going guy and the chemistry between his character and Dani really worked. You really got the feeling that they were old friends but still nervous to see each other after all this time. The actual story was enjoyable. I was pretty surprised to find out why all the weird stuff was happening to her at 2:13. so, all in all I give this a 4 out of 5.
