Rating: 5 Cups
Cassie Jackson will do anything to save her marriage, even move in an isolated mountain town in Virginia. From their arrival forward, Cassie realizes her marriage is already doomed. Being shunned by his family is the icing on the cake.
Deputy David Argon is intrigued by his new neighbor. His aunt says she is the one, but their time has yet to come. Death will bring Cassie and David together, to try to help Cassie understand and accept.
There is more to Cassie’s in-laws than meets the eye, and the cause of death may be stranger than any fiction. Somehow, David must ease Cassie into his world, because only through his reality can she accept death and find a place for herself, if she does not want to face insanity.
Dark In The Woods is a very good book, with characters that will grip the reader’s heart. I love David and his aunt, and I have cried for the losses in the community. Cassie is a strong woman, but even strong people have a limit. The reader will begin to wonder if they can reach the limit and go beyond. Ms. Laurey pulls readers in and drags them along the path of Dark In The Woods, until the end makes them yearn for another path to follow.
