About the Book:
From the author of Exposed in Darkness comes the fourth book in the In Darkness series, a novella. USA Today calls Exposed in Darkness “a sophisticated and absorbing thriller,” and Shot in Darkness is definitely a sophisticated and thrilling addition to the series. Shot in Darkness is a fast-paced thriller that romantic suspense fans and fans of the In Darkness series will love.
Intelligence analyst and former FBI special agent Brooke Fairfax is on the run. Not from anything sinister, but from her past. She’s hiding from Declan O’Roark after he proposed a question she simply wasn’t ready to answer. She finds solitude in Washington D.C. where she struggles to reconcile her feelings about her late husband and a possible future with Declan. Within hours, Declan tracks her down, desperate to save the relationship.
After establishing a tenuous truce, Brooke and Declan meet a suspicious man outside a Georgetown neighborhood bar. Terror begins to unfold just as Brooke realizes the man’s intentions. But what appears to be yet another random shooting spree turns out to be a highly targeted act. Brooke’s and Declan’s lives will be changed forever — if they’re lucky enough to escape.
“Shot in Darkness” by Heather Sunseri is the fourth book in the In Darkness series. While this is much shorter than the other novels, considering a novella, this will only leave the reader wanting more. This time Brooke isn’t even on a case, but we deal with Romeo. In fact, we finally learn who he is! FINALLY!
Brooke is also struggling with deciding whether or not she wants to commit to Declan and to Kentucky. While I completely understand her reasoning, it was kind of annoying to see her deal with that for so long. I enjoyed that. Hopefully, she sticks with this decision and doesn’t decide to change her mind later.
The romance is super cute. This book does contain one non-graphic and short pre-marital sex scene but is overall done well. There is also some bad language and drinking wine here and there so I would only suggest this series for older teens and adults.
Overall, I really enjoyed this read. When I first started reading, I wasn’t planning on finishing it in one sitting, but that’s exactly what I ended up doing. This is indeed a fast page-turner. I need the next book ASAP because I need more!
