Things we Do in the Dark Reviews
An Amazon Best Book of July 2022: With her last two novels, Jar of Hearts and Little Secrets, Jennifer Hillier established herself as a master of psychological suspense, and with Things We Do in the Dark, she knocks it out of the park again. Paris Peralta’s carefully curated life with her wealthy celebrity husband ends abruptly when she’s arrested—drenched in blood and holding a straight razor—after her hubby is found murdered in the bathtub of their home. And that’s only the second most worrying issue she’s contending with: the publicity from the scandal catching the attention of people in Paris’s past is a much greater concern. Hillier sets this riveting roundhouse of a novel off with a bang, and then builds the suspense to unbearable heights with red herrings, dark secrets, twisted relationships, and a jaw-socking reveal or two. Summer just got hotter. —Vannessa Cronin, Amazon Editor
