done The book moved at a nice pace and the author pulled together the story lines well at the end, answering questions and concerns I d had throughout the book Content Warnings SPOILER cross dressing I think that was what was being depicted here though it involved only makeup that seemed concerningly stereotypical with the character ultimately being depicted as crazy and dangerous graphic depictions of blood, injuries and murder physical and verbal abuse END SPOILER Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC The opinions in this review are honest and my own ScorchedGrounds

prologue is dramatically unsettling As I continued reading, my attention never lessened as Debbie Herbert kept the conspiracies mounting along with my desire to uncover the facts Uncertainties about a prior incident continue to haunt one woman throughout SCORCHED GROUNDS, and when current circumstances could perhaps be tied to what occurred many years ago, she makes it her mission to expose the truth I have always enjoyed the compelling way in which Ms Herbert draws me into her storylines, as plots are very inventive while the fictional characters have distinctive personalities yet are still convincing A tragic event when Della Stallings was only eight left her traumatized, and sadly having her father accused of murdering her mother and young brother resulted in several personal issues that she has not overcome as an adult One dilemma is she would rather not associate with other people, and working a night shift at the Normal Community Hospital gives her enough money to live on while avoiding most interaction with anyone After her father unexpectedly gets out of prison, she becomes evenanxious with new worries When a number of deadly occurrences take place that are unexplained and seem to be connected to her father, Della realizes the time has come for her to get much needed answers to questions about the past, as her own safety might also be in jeopardy Cleverly hidden clues kept me constantly changing my guesses as to who was behind the growing number of killings Debbie Herbert certainly makes her suspenseful story continuously captivating, as each new piece of information only fueled my curiosity to learnDella is definitely a fascinating individual, as she has lived through a terrible ordeal Her life at present is not ideal, but she is coping and striving for something better in the future But when her father comes back to Normal, she begins looking for answers to the doubts that plague her What she unearths is often shocking, and I was frequently just as surprised as Della Many scenes are intensely depicted with vivid details, and each situation kept me fully engrossed SCORCHED GROUNDS has imaginative happenings and a cast of noteworthy characters I voluntarily reviewed the book, and all comments are my honest opinion In my younger years, I loved reading books by Victoria Holt, Phyllis Whitney and others who wrote in the Gothic romance genre I am happy to have found a similar author in Debbie Herbert.Della Stallings is traumatized at the age of 8 when her mother and younger brother, Jimmy, are brutally stabbed and the killer chases her through the woods When her father is convicted of the heinous crime, Della goes to live with her Aunt Sylvie Fast forward 20 years and Della s father, Hunter, is released fr In my

chromophobia She soon finds herself becoming attracted to a policeman, Nathan Wilkes, who happens to be a classmate from high school.The author does a great job in developing the story and the chapters are written from several of the characters POV As the story unfolds, Della begins to wonder if her father was guilty of her mother s murder or maybe even worse crimes Is her father the serial killer loose in Normal, killing women who are patients at the hospital where she works Or, is there another monster causing these crimes At first, Della seems to be a cringing mental case, but toward the end of the book, she redeems herself in spectacular fashion in a fight for her life All of the loose ends are finally woven together in a very satisfactory manner and I found myself racing to reach the conclusion.The narrators did a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of the story I look forward to manyhours of entertainment by Ms Herbert and hope that she continues to write books in

did not find that in this story What I found was a well written crime fiction, that grabbed me from the very first chapters to the surprising unpredictable ending The characters were deftly defined, and most were likeable.Many thanks to the author Thomas Mercer Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime thriller Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my
