Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier ~ My Thoughts #ThingsWeDoInTheDark

Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier
Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 352 pages
Published July 19th 2022 by Minotaur Books

Things We Do in the Dark is a brilliant new thriller from Jennifer Hillier, the award-winning author of the breakout novels Little Secrets and Jar of Hearts. Paris Peralta is suspected of killing her celebrity husband, and her long-hidden past now threatens to destroy her future.

When Paris Peralta is arrested in her own bathroom—covered in blood, holding a straight razor, her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub behind her—she knows she'll be charged with murder. But as bad as this looks, it's not what worries her the most. With the unwanted media attention now surrounding her, it's only a matter of time before someone from her long hidden past recognizes her and destroys the new life she's worked so hard to build, along with any chance of a future.

Twenty-five years earlier, Ruby Reyes, known as the Ice Queen, was convicted of a similar murder in a trial that riveted Canada in the early nineties. Reyes knows who Paris really is, and when she's unexpectedly released from prison, she threatens to expose all of Paris's secrets. Left with no other choice, Paris must finally confront the dark past she escaped, once and for all.

Because the only thing worse than a murder charge are two murder charges.

My thoughts about Things We Do in the Dark ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"There is a time and a place for erect nipples, but the back of a Seattle police car definitely isn't it."

Things We Do in the Dark starts out strong and never lets up! 

Paris' world is turned upside down when she is found all bloody next to her dead husband's body. But that is only just the beginning of her problems—the world is not done with her yet. Secrets and revenge fill the hearts and lives of Paris and Ruby as they battle it out with the age old question of who will triumph in the end. 

Thing We Do in the Dark will keep you in suspense until the very end and leave you very satisfied. I highly recommend it for all thriller lovers.

I received an ARC of  Things We Do in the Dark from Goodreads and this is my honest opinion.
