Overview

Shot in Darkness (In Darkness Book Four) by Heather Sunseri

Shot in Darkness, a novella, is the exciting fourth book in the In Darkness series, a series USA Today calls "a sophisticated and absorbing thriller." This novella is fast-paced action and heart-pounding romance from beginning to end.

Intelligence analyst and former FBI special agent Brooke Fairfax is on the run. Not from anything sinister, but from her past. She's hiding from Declan O'Roark after he proposed a question she simply wasn't ready to answer. She finds solitude in Washington D.C. where she struggles to reconcile her feelings about her late husband and a possible future with Declan. Within hours, Declan tracks her down, desperate to save the relationship.

After establishing a tenuous truce, Brooke and Declan meet a suspicious man outside a Georgetown neighborhood bar. Terror begins to unfold just as Brooke realizes the man's intentions. But what appears to be yet another random shooting spree turns out to be a highly targeted act. Brooke's and Declan's lives will be changed forever -- if they're lucky enough to escape.

This 88 page short E-story is a follow up to book 3 in Sunseri's In Darkness series. It definitely expands the story while leaving room for book 5 to carry the storyline even further.

Shot in Darkness by Heather Sunseri is the fourth novella in the In Darkness collection. Brooke Fairfax has agreed to housesit/pet sit for her friends, Tyler and James in Georgetown (dogs are called Thurston and Lovey—who know what show these names come from?). The call came just when Brooke needed to get away and her old college friend, Anya Bhatia requested an in-person meeting (good timing). Her boyfriend, Declan O’Roark was talking about their future and Brooke is not sure she is ready. She packed up her suitcase and took off—without telling Declan. Brooke is out with the dogs when she notices Tyler’s neighbor, Bradley getting a large package of ammunition. She puts it aside when she sees Declan standing on the front porch (did not take him long to track her down). They agree to not discuss the future for the next two weeks (while housesitting). That evening on the way to the Full Court Press for her meeting with Anya she notices Bradley again. Brooke calls Tyler to get some details while Declan heads into the bar. Then shots ring out and, once again, Brooke’s life is in jeopardy. But who was shot? Does this have anything to do with Brooke asking Anya to dig for Romeo’s identity? Shot in Darkness contains good writing and strong characters. I was thrilled that Shot in Darkness had a faster pace than the last two books. It is a quick and easy novella to read (just a short story). And at long last, it looks like the Romeo case is making headway (hooray). It was nice to see growth in Brooke’s character (about time). I can understand wanting answers about her husband, but Brooke takes things to extremes. I give Shot in Darkness 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). Shot in Darkness is not a stand-alone book. Each book in the In Darkness series builds upon the previous one. It will be interesting to see what happens next regarding Romeo (I am just hoping it does not drag on for several more books).

4 stars. Shot in Darkness is the fourth book in the In Darkness series. If you have read the previous books it helps you understand the setting and the main characters. But this book can be read as a standalone. There isn't a cliffhanger at the end though it is open-ended for the next book in the series. There is violence and sex so 18+. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The main characters in the series are Brooke Fairfax and Declan O'Rourke. You easily get caught up in the emotions of the characters and story. There is plenty of action as well as twists and turns in the book. I really enjoyed this book and storyline. I look forward to reading more of Heather Sunseri's other books as well as future books in this series. I received a copy of this book from the author and chose to leave a review for other readers.

I fell in love with the characters and every turn of the page took me to a different world I love this book and the series. I hope that she continues and makes a series about Declan before meeting Brooke and then his side of things. The way she describes the characters makes me feel like I am Brooke or even a bystander on the streets watching all the action and romance take place.

“Shot in Darkness” by Heather Sunseri is the fourth book in the In Darkness series. While this is much shorter than the other novels, considering a novella, this will only leave the reader wanting more. This time Brooke isn’t even on a case, but we deal with Romeo. In fact, we finally learn who he is! FINALLY! Brooke is also struggling with deciding whether or not she wants to commit to Declan and to Kentucky. While I completely understand her reasoning, it was kind of annoying to see her deal with that for so long. I enjoyed that. Hopefully, she sticks with this decision and doesn’t decide to change her mind later. The romance is super cute. This book does contain one non-graphic and short pre-marital sex scene but is overall done well. There is also some bad language and drinking wine here and there so I would only suggest this series for older teens and adults. Overall, I really enjoyed this read. When I first started reading, I wasn’t planning on finishing it in one sitting, but that’s exactly what I ended up doing. This is indeed a fast page-turner. I need the next book ASAP because I need more! Highly recommended! Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given.
