Great Read ~~In dark Minds we catch up with Emily Stone and her
Great Read ~~In dark Minds we catch up with Emily Stone and her partner Rick in a paradise getaway. This was another book in the Emily Stone series and having never read one before I was able to catch onto the characters pretty quickly which is great. in this book we are taken to a beautiful island where Emily and her partner are soon faced with a case involving a serial killer. I found the book to be a great read and made it through the book rather quickly. I enjoyed the details of the island and it's surroundings that the author provided and I liked that she made the characters easy to like as well as to follow along with. Over all a good read for a lazy summer day.I actually enjoyed this one so much I am excited to go read more of the Emily Stone series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love a good psychological thriller or suspense book. They’ve long-time been a favorite of mine. I think this genre may have been why I fell in love with reading in the first place. I especially love when something happens at the end of the chapter and I just HAVE to read on to see what happens in the next one. Jennifer Chase’s book Dark Mind does just that.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It combines paradise with mayhem as the main character, Emily, finds herself pursuing a serial killer in the beautiful Hawaiian islands. This combination makes Dark Mind even creepier because when you’re relaxing on the beach in the land of Aloha, the last thing on your mind is the possibility of someone so disturbing interrupting your siesta in the sun. Am I right?
As I was reading, I found myself wanting to know more about Emily’s past. I didn’t know this book was the third in a series because it easily stands alone. Still, I may go back and read the other two as well.
In this book, Emily is joined by Richard and Jordan to track down the man who is terrorizing the island. Amid the search, there’s also an intricate love triangle among them. Emily seems to draw the attention of the men she comes in contact with perhaps because of her tenacious, strong, fighter spirit. It’s obvious in this novel that Emily has been through the ringer in her life and she definitely hasn’t had an easy go of it.
The local police seem to be operating off of island time, in no hurry to solve the murders that are plaguing their community. It will be up to Emily, Richard, and Jordan to find the killer before it’s too late.
This book is nonstop action. I really, really enjoyed it!
