Darkness Rising (East Salem Trilogy #2) by Lis Wiehl

From Goodreads: -

The evil that's in East Salem is no longer content to hide in the shadows. The stakes-and the darkness-are rising.

Dani Harris thought there wasn't much left that could surprise her after serving as a forensic psychiatrist in East Salem. And Tommy Gunderson has faced few challenges in his life that he couldn't overcome by either physical strength or his celebrity status.

But as they race to uncover what's really happening behind the high walls of St. Adrian's Academy, it becomes clear that supernatural forces have been at work here for generations. And now their focus is on making sure Dani and Tommy don't interfere.

When the unseen becomes seen, faith is the only weapon strong enough to fight in a battle involving not only murder and betrayal-but angels and demons.

I like the first book in this series very much. The writer is very good at creating suspense making it a page turner. In this book 2 of the series, the story continues where Waking Hours left off. In my opinion, it's ok to read book 2 without reading book 1, but I would still recommend to read book 1 to have better understanding on the back ground of the characters as well as the case.

In this 2nd book, Dani and Tommy continue to work together on the case. And this time, both Dani and Tommy's ex come into picture which make their relationship a little more challenging. The plot of the story is amazing. I like the twists and turns and the suspense elements in the story. I can never expect what will happen next. Once I started reading, I just could not stop. I like both characters of Dani and Tommy a lot. They are mature, strong, insightful and have faith. I can't wait to further read about the development of their relationship. In this 2nd book, the devil has finally emerged. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!

I enjoy reading this book very much. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

Love Unscripted by Tina Reber


A-List Movie Star

Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he ever imagine that fans would chase him, paparazzi would hound him, and Hollywood studios would all want a piece of him. While filming on location in Seaport, Rhode Island Ryan ducks into a pub for just a quick escape from screaming fans—but fate has other plans.

Meets Small Town Girl

At six foot two, with dirty blond hair, blue eyes, and an incredible body, Ryan has every girl in Seaport swooning—every girl but Taryn Mitchell. Nursing a recent heartbreak, this small town pub owner believes men are best kept at a distance. But when Ryan unexpectedly bursts into her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in by his humor, charm and intense magnetism.

But Gossip Sells and They’re Paying the Price

Despite her better judgment, Taryn soon finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. But is their bond strong enough to survive the tabloid lies, intrusive paparazzi, and stalking fans who threaten to tear them apart?


Tina Reber is the daughter of a small town spunky librarian. She lives in a suburb of Allentown, Pennsylvania with her husband and son who allow her to slip away into fictitious worlds on a daily basis.

I think this is the longest romance book that I have read so far. Although it is long, but the pace is good. And the interesting story line keeps me continue reading.

I don't have much pick on Ryan Christensen. On the other hand, I feel Taryn is a little lack of confident on herself. She keeps on thinking on the negative side, that she is not good enough for Ryan Christensen. She keeps on dwelling on this issue that at the end causing unnecessary tension between two of them. At first it's ok but after few episodes of the drama I feel a little annoyed on that. Taryn is a smart business owner, who run her own bar. I will expect she has higher esteem on herself. Anyway, that what makes their relationship more challenging and once they overcome the challenges, their relationship become stronger.

I enjoy reading this book and I look forward for the next book in this series.

I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
