Once I started reading this, it was hard to put down. Its an incredibly Well written and the story and characters draw you in.
An unspeakable thing happened twelve years ago changing the lives of a group of strangers, when their paths cross unexpectedly for some and by the madman who started it all years ago a brutal finale awaits.
Each of the main characters had a traumatising thing happen to them in their past. None more than Sarah Baker who was abducted by a serial killer and abused both physically and sexually before managing to escape. After being deserted by those closest to her Sarah then became Olivia West and ended up working on the Broken Bar Ranch.
Cole McDonough lived through two traumatising things in his life time. Losing his mother and younger brother and losing the woman he loved and her son when she walked away from their relationship after a harrowing ordeal. He left his father and the Broken Bar Ranch behind a long time ago and never looked back but once he finds out his father is dying he returns.
Gage Burton and his daughter Tori are still reeling from the loss his wife and her mother. A retiring police detective, he has many regrets in life but the biggest is his fear that they never caught the right man for the Watt Lake killings. He sets up online traps using Sarah’s name to try and lure the real killer out even 12 years later. When he finally gets a hit he heads to the Broken Bar Ranch with his daughter in hopes of finally catching him.
All of these people lives now intersect at the Broken Bar Ranch not realising that the killer is already among them and Sarah/Olivia's life is in grave danger again because the Watt Lake killer has come back to finish what he started.
There are so many POV’s in this story, as each of these characters are connected in some way or will be, its like putting a puzzle together. While some may call it confusing iI felt it added to the dynamism of the book. This writer knows how to tell a story, ‘A Dark Lure’ is a romantic suspense novel, not really a psychological thriller as it's categorised. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
