Dark Terror by Sandra Owens
Publisher: January 8th, 2019
Series: Dark Falls, 5
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Librarian Cara Jennings is probably going to die... and it's all because of a dog. Until the night she follows a little dog trailing a leash into the park, thinking to rescue someone's lost pet, and witnesses a murder, she's led a quiet life, doing her best to come to terms with the death of her brother. But when the killer starts hunting her, Cara only feels safe with Gabe Calder, the detective assigned to the case.

Gabe Calder lives to catch bad guys. He's organized to the extreme, focused, and dedicated. His attraction to Cara Jenner is inconvenient. She's the only witness to his murder case and strictly off-limits. Gabe knows he should step back from Cara as soon as he realizes he's seeing her as more than a witness. That fact hits home the day he kisses the sexy librarian.

In spite of taking precautions to keep Cara safe, she turns up missing. It becomes a race against time to save her from the hands of a killer. Failure is not an option.

Pat's Review:

An amazing, suspenseful romance. But don’t read when you're alone, and definitely not before you go to sleep!

Nothing happens to quiet librarians. She may have the Wicked Witch for a boss, but Cara Jenner loved her job. But leaving late one evening, she sees a dog running in circles in the street, with a leash dragging behind. She runs to rescue the dog and witnesses something that will change her life forever. Her quiet life as a librarian is done. She now has a stalker and a adorable ugly dog called Cricket.

Gabe Calder is a detective on the Dark Falls Police Department and was called to the scene of the murder. He is known in the department as “cool, calm and collected” but for some reason his witness, Cara, is awakening some very unusual and protective feelings. Suddenly Cara spots a man at various places, even in her back yard, and things heat up. Both in the case and between Cara and Gabe. The investigation is leading them to some important people who are not happy with the situation.

The last few chapters were nonstop action. Ms. Owen added the killer's voice to the story and it was chilling. But don't worry, there are still moments that make you laugh, and the romance is hot.
