Nora Solves Another One!
4.5 out of 5 stars
I just finished listening to Dark Sommer, and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed. Nora Sommer‘s character is a standout for me. I love that she always has to fight to not say the wrong thing (and usually fails). I think it’s a believable flaw that adds to her charm. Additionally, Nora’s ability to think outside the box and approach crimes uniquely makes the stories interesting and a blast to listen to.
In this Dark Sommer, we also get to see another peak behind the curtain of Nora’s story; and the ending (without giving any spoilers) was a genuine surprise. It seems like Nora might be taking on more responsibility in the future, and I’m excited to see where her personal story goes.
I really enjoy Harvey’s writing style and how he’s able to place the story in the Caribbean, making specific points where you don’t think, “this could happen here,” and at other times, you do. I don’t know how to explain it better, but it makes these stories all a blast to read, in my opinion.
As for the story itself, it was absolutely fascinating. Without giving anything away, the reveal around 3/4 of the way through had my jaw dropping in shock. The mystery kept me guessing and thinking, “maybe this person did it” throughout. All in all, Dark Sommer is a thrilling and engaging story that I flew through, given the excellent performance by Kim Bretton.
A murdered mother. A missing child. A ruthless scheme.
Murders are rare in the beautiful Cayman Islands, so when a woman’s body is discovered near a secluded trail, the police launch an exhaustive investigation. Their first hurdle is identifying the victim, and the next…will be finding her missing newborn.
Nora Sommer’s detective training continues in a bizarre case where the law of the land drives some people to crime. Under strict scrutiny after her last case, Nora must stay between the lines while chasing villains under no such restrictions.
Book three in the Nora Sommer Caribbean Suspense series will keep you guessing… and wondering who the real victim might be.Dark Sommer by Nicholas Harvey
