REVIEW – Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda NovakHer Darkest Nightmare (The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles, #1) by Brenda Novak

First in an electrifying new series from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak
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.
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.
