Deep in the woods near a small town in Maine, a killer is on a rampage. After being thwarted a few months ago when he attempted a Celtic human sacrifice, he is bent on trying again. His sights are now set on a beautiful innkeeper, Mandy Brown.
Danny Sullivan arrives in town to follow up, as his sister Jayne was the intended victim the last time. He arrives in time to save Mandy from Nathan Hall, the killer. When Nathan disappears and is not seen or heard from for several months, some believe he has died. After all, he is ill and suffering from a terminal brain disease.
Danny doesn’t believe that Nathan is dead, and tries to elicit help from Mandy, who might know more than she is saying. Yet despite the intense connection that seems to be developing between Mandy and Danny, and even though she wants Nathan caught, why is she unable to cooperate? What secrets are preventing her from assisting in the hunt?
As people in the small town are disappearing one by one, Danny and others are sure that Nathan is still out there, and is responsible for it all. What will it take to find him and stop him? And what does he plan to do with those he is capturing?
Just as in the first book, Midnight Exposure, the characters of Midnight Sacrifice drew me in and kept me turning pages, enjoying their journey to finding a killer, even as the romantic connections grew. The settings were lovely, and I could feel as though I were walking among the characters. A lovely romantic suspense that I couldn’t put down. Five stars.
