This story grips you from the start and doesn't let go. I love suspense and this delivered. The author does a great job of bringing you into each characters corner of the story and his or her emotional world. You feel for *everyone* in this book. I highly recommend this novella!
I enjoyed reading!
Jonathan Chandler, a college teacher, is mourning the lost of his family. He carries on with his life the best he can, trying to stop what's left of it from unraveling at the seems. Things don't go as smoothly as he hopes when Kandi transfers to his class. She can't understand why Jonathan dislikes her so much, or why he's so intent on making her life a living hell. And Jonathan is struggling to fight the urge to kill her. It's only till Kandi is near death that she learns the truth about Jonathan, and their heart breaking connection. Piercing Through the Darkness is a psychological thriller that tugs at your heartstrings. We get a small glimpse of what people go through when they are dealing with a gut wrenching lost and how those responsible would do anything to forget.
Good book until you get to the ending. The author could have gone into a bit more detail! Talk about a let down.
