Sam Jakes hasn't been home since a tour in Afghanistan
nearly killed him. Burned and scarred after a bomb blew
up, Sam still struggles with PTSD on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, a murder investigation has sent him home,
filled with regrets for the time he has missed with
family-and Lainey Pickett, the only woman he's ever
loved. Lainey is still in town but she too carries her
own scars, both emotionally and physically. Can Sam and
Lainey rekindle the love they once shared? And just who
is behind all of the killings in Mystic, West Virginia?
Sharon Sala concludes her spectacular Secrets and
Lies trilogy with DARK HEARTS. DARK HEARTS picks up
immediately after the stunning cliffhanger from the
second book, COLD HEARTS, so I highly suggest you at
least read that book prior to jumping into DARK HEARTS.
The storyline is intertwined throughout the trilogy,
however, and any Sharon Sala book is a guaranteed winner
so you can't go wrong if you start from the beginning of
the Secrets and Lies trilogy.
Lainey and Sam are one of my favorite couples in a
romance novel. Sharon Sala does a marvelous job at giving
us enough of their history together without overshadowing
the current storyline. The scene where they openly share
their physical scars with one another still makes me
teary eyed, as the emotional pain Lainey and Sam have
endured seeps through the pages.
Sharon Sala is a master at crafting emotional romances
that pack a powerful punch and DARK HEARTS is no
exception. I love that we see real world situations, such
as PTSD and breast cancer, openly addressed in such a
sensitive manner. I'm sorry to see the end of the
Secrets and Lies series as I've thoroughly enjoyed
meeting each one of Sharon Sala's wonderful characters.
If you love heartwarming and emotionally charged romantic
suspense stories, then look no further than Sharon Sala
and DARK HEARTS!
