Can you believe that 2018 is over and we are now jumping into 2019 with both feet?! 2018 was such a big year for our family. We got engaged, got married, bought a house, and had our third beautiful daughter. WOW! What a crazy year. The start of a new year also means the start of a new reading journey!
Every year, I participate in First Book of the Year, hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. It is so fun to pick the book that I’m going to read to kick off a new year of reading. This year, my First Book of the Year is Hanover House by Brenda Novak.
Welcome to Hanover House…
Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them?
After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst.
But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries.
He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong…
