Review - The Truth Lies In The Dark by Kristin Callender
Title: The Truth Lies in the Dark
Author(s):: Kristin Calender
Summary: A married woman finds there is mystery locked in her past that she cannot remember. But her family knows, have kept the truth from her.
My Thoughts: The book moves back and forth between California and, I believe, Connecticut. The main characters, Amanda and Nick Martineau, have a deep and loving relationship, and it shows throughout the book. The plot surrounds the secret from Amanda's past that her family keeps secret, including her husband Nick.
The book kept me interested and, while I don't think the plot was too original, I still enjoyed it. I found Amanda's dreams most interesting. Her amnesia, and other parts, reminded me of My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews--to which it was a little similar to that book, but not completely. The pacing was quick and exciting, and I had a good time reading it.
