Dark Hearts (Secrets and Lies #3) by Sharon Sala

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

Some lies never stay buried...

Betsy Jakes was having nightmares, nightmares that could solve a decades-old mystery. And for someone in her small town, that meant she had to die. 

When Sam Jakes returns home to help his brother solve their mother's murder, two things shake him to the core. This crime is clearly the work of a serial killer who has struck twice before. And ... Lainey Pickett is still in town. The woman he walked away from without an explanation years ago has just walked back into his life. She still holds a grudge - and his heart.

As Sam digs deeper into the murders and thirty-year-old secrets begin to emerge, he finds himself racing against time not only to catch a killer but to keep Lainey, the only woman he'll ever love, from falling victim, too.

When I requested this book at NG I didn't knew it was the third in the series. Fortunately it could be read as a standalone. I´m not a big fan of books with characters physically scarred, and I have noticed that have become a pattern lately. But knowing it was written by Sharon Sala I couldn't let it pass. Thank God, because it was awesome, I was hooked from the beginning. It was as good as I learn to expect from her books.

The plot was full of intricacy and twists, the characters had depth. They had to overcome so much suffering in order to be in a happy place. It was heart wrenching to see all they went through and them it was heartwarming and hopeful to see their way out, the new path they set for themselves.
