Flee the Darkness drops the reader right into a very scary situation, as the heroine is trying to escape someone who is actively stalking her! The author accurately captured the fear and terror that Melissa was feeling in those opening pages.
I liked that this was a second chance at love story and I really liked the hero, Chris. I struggled with liking Melissa because of her quick judgments and unforgiving attitude toward Chris. However, she grew a lot emotionally throughout this novel and I did end up liking her and hoping for the best for her and Chris.
Flee the Darkness introduces the town of Harmony Grove and begins a new series. The suspense was definitely intense and built throughout the entire book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Where do you run when there’s nowhere to hide?
Melissa Langston flees Georgia to escape a relentless stalker, but soon anonymous notes and a menacing figure lurking in the shadows shatter the fragile sense of security she has found in her small Florida hometown. The only one who takes the danger seriously is the cop who broke her heart years ago. She doesn’t want his protection. He let her down at the time when she needed him most, and she doesn’t do second chances.
When Memphis Police Officer Chris Jamison returns to Florida to deal with his father’s sudden death, the last thing he wants is to reconnect with his first love. No way is he ready to jump back into the vicious cycle of trying and failing to meet her expectations. But how can he turn his back on a woman who needs his protection, especially one who still holds such a grip on his heart?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads as if she doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She currently pens fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.
Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
