Rising Darkness Review

My Thoughts
I should start by saying I was positive I reviewed this book, but when I search the files it was not in them, so here we go again. Nancy Mehl is and has been a favorite suspense author for a while. That said, I struggled to get into this book, but hung in there and was so happy I did. Sophie was a little off the cusp, doing things you wouldn't expect for someone in her position to do, but she gave the story that twist it needed. While Sanctuary is a great place to read about, I am not sure I would want to live there, A bit close minded and cliquish, in that small town secluded from the rest of the world. This book will stand alone but reading the others in the series is helpful. 4 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review. 

About the Book
Sophie Wittenbauer left her strict Mennonite hometown under a cloud of shame and regret. Certain she's left her past far behind her, she's now focused on her job at a newspaper and is shocked when she stumbles upon the name of someone she knew in her old life. But when she learns the man--a prisoner--claims a suspect from a decades-old unsolved crime is hiding out in the small town of Sanctuary, Missouri, she can't resist following the lead in hopes of furthering her career. 

Almost immediately upon her arrival, Sophie's confronted with a face from her past and fears her intention of using a false identity to investigate is doomed. But with the help of Sanctuary's charismatic young pastor, Sophie knows she's getting close. Will she be able to conceal the truth of her own past long enough to find the suspect before someone puts a stop--fatal or otherwise--to her investigation?
