Book Review: Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier

Goodreads Summary:

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 Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My Review:

She has done it again! This may be my new favorite of 2022! 

This story is great and you think you know where it’s going…then BAM…totally turned in another direction. The characters are written in a way that makes you empathize with them and makes you want everything to turn out okay in the end. 

It was definitely a heartbreaking story and, even though it’s fictional, you know deep down that stories like this exist out there somewhere. 

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a family drama/murder/suspense book. Be aware of trigger warnings such as child abuse, rape, and sexual assault.
