Her Darkest Nightmare (The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles, #1) by Brenda Novak
First in an electrifying new series from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak
THE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER
Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only sixteen when her own boyfriend Jasper imprisoned and tortured her—and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amarok, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community…even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.
BEGINS WITH AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAST
Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amarok, this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her—the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again. . .and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same…
“Brenda Novak's seamless plotting, emotional intensity, and true-to-life characters…make her books completely satisfying.”― New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan
My words cannot even begin to describe the greatness of this book. I LOVE psychological thrillers like this.
Dr. Evelyn Talbot is an amazing woman, to have such a good heart after everything she has been through. She has a surprising amount of compassion and humanity. But don’t let that fool you, she doesn’t take any crap that she doesn’t intentionally want to from the inmates at Hanover House.
She is a master chess player when it comes to digging into the mind of a psychopath. However there is further danger lurking as Evelyn and the sexy State Trooper Amarok begin to unravel a serious threat to Hanover House.
I think fans of the show Criminal Minds or the movie Silence of the Lambs will love this series.

OMG OMG OMG – what a great book. This book was so different from anything I’ve read from this author before and it was right up my alley. I love a good suspense/psychological thriller and digging into the human psyche, I’m a puzzle person and the mind is one giant puzzle I find fascinating.
I was totally sold on Evelyn from the get go, she’s just an amazing character. I loved her strength and devotion after everything she’s been through. And oh did I mention that there is a hot Alaskan State Trooper as well 🙂
This book had nearly every single thing I look for in a good book. I’m pretty sure I’m going to read it a few more times before the next book comes out, and I will be totally stalking the author for any little snippet about the next book.
I think anyone who likes the show Criminal Minds will love this book, as well as those who don’t know the show and just love suspense/psychological thrillers.
