I had read a couple of other books by the author Chevy Stevens so when I saw this one, Dark Roads, I put it on my waitlist. I’d enjoyed the other books I’ve read so I thought this one would be good for me.
All in all, I like the book. I guessed early on who was the killed and circumstances around the killings. The author didn’t really add in more people who might have done it so the book didn’t keep my attention as it otherwise might have. It wasn’t a waste of time book…but there are others I would recommend much more quickly.
Here is what Amazon had to say:
“The Cold Creek Highway stretches close to five hundred miles through British Columbia’s rugged wilderness to the west coast. Isolated and vast, it has become a prime hunting ground for predators. For decades, young women traveling the road have gone missing. Motorists and hitchhikers, those passing through or living in one of the small towns scattered along the region, have fallen prey time and again. And no killer or abductor who has stalked the highway has ever been brought to justice.
Hailey McBride calls Cold Creek home. Her father taught her to respect nature, how to live and survive off the land, and to never travel the highway alone. Now he’s gone, leaving her a teenage orphan in the care of her aunt whose police officer husband uses his badge as a means to bully and control Hailey. Overwhelmed by grief and forbidden to work, socialize, or date, Hailey vanishes into the mountainous terrain, hoping everyone will believe she’s left town. Rumors spread that she was taken by the highway killer―who’s claimed another victim over the summer.
One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek, where her sister Amber lived―and where she was murdered. Estranged from her parents and seeking closure, Beth takes a waitressing job at the local diner, just as Amber did, desperate to understand what happened to her and why. But Beth’s search for answers puts a target on her back―and threatens to reveal the truth behind Hailey’s disappearance…”
Amazon readers gave the book 4.4 stars. I’m giving it 4.1. I liked other books by her a little better.
