Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

Want to have a good time?  Then don't get involved with Lee.

Harper sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 5th, so put it on your TBR list.

This book is creepy.  It's filled with psychological suspense and mind twisting horror.  What do you do when a man you thought you loved suddenly thought he owned you and began punishing you if you displeased him in any way?  Catherine tried to flee but was captured before she got on the plane.  The abuse got so bad, she was ready to die and almost did.

When Lee goes to jail, she moves and tries to start a new life as Cathy.  After all, he won't be able to find her, right?

The author did a very good job of showing how an obsessive person can impact your life.  Even though Cathy is away from Lee, she has become obsessive compulsive and has to check locks, windows, doors, drawers and more again and again.  All this just to be sure he hasn't returned.

This tale of abuse has the ring of truth.  I've known abused women and their stories have the same tone and the same fear that is reflected in this story.  I just kept turning pages hoping Cathy would be finally free from him.  The ending is totally ironic and will remain in your mind long after you've set down the book.

If you'd like my ARC of this book, leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info at with your name and address and why you'd like to read this.

Happy reading.
