Wait Until Dark
A woman grieving broken dreams. A man struggling to regain memories. A secret entrenched in folklore dating back two centuries.
Antiquarian Felicity French has no clue the trouble she's inviting in when she rescues a man outside her grandma's old plantation house during a treacherous snowstorm. All she wants is to nurse her battered heart and wounded ego, as well as come to terms with her past. Now she's stuck inside with a stranger sporting an old bullet wound and forgotten hours.
Coast Guardsman Brody Joyner can't remember why he was out in such perilous weather, how he injured his head, or how a strange key got into his pocket. He also has no idea why his pint-sized savior has such a huge chip on her shoulder. He has no choice but to make the best of things until the storm passes.
Brody and Felicity's rocky start goes from tense to worse when danger closes in. Who else wants the mysterious key that somehow ended up in Brody's pocket? Why? The unlikely duo quickly becomes entrenched in an adventure of a lifetime, one that could have ties to local folklore and Felicity's ancestors. But sometimes the past leads to darkness . . . darkness that doesn't wait for anyone.
They're future depends on the past...
This Book received a 5 Bark rating.
I've eagerly looked forward to each book in the Carolina Moon series, the stories connected but each stands on its own, and none of them have disappointed. They have a little bit more of a romantic suspense feel to them, which I love. A little darker, a little more chilling, and definitely a lot of fun to read! Believe me, Wait Until Dark has it all! From a delightfully mysterious cover to some great quirky characters, and lots of tense moments that will totally keep you on the edge of your seat breathlessly turning pages.
Wait Until Dark is a definite MUST read for romantic suspense fans and Christy Barritt fans. I'll warn you, though...you won't be able to put it down even if you try...
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives Wait Until Dark by Christy Barritt a 4.5 Bark rating.
