Accidental Witness by Sam Mariano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Bye bye, sleep. Need to read more Morellis!
Oh my god, I love this book. This whole series. This author. I put it off because, and I know this is stupid, the cover came off more “suspense” than “dark romantic suspense” to me. I now see the error of my ways! What a great loss if I hadn’t taken the plunge! Now I read everything this author writes, “follow” (stalk) her on social media in pursuit of news or extra bits of content (which she gives in her Facebook group, by the way), and basically can’t get enough. And it all started with THIS BOOK.
The build up of the interactions between Vince and Mia is hot, and the suspense of “does he know” (yeah, he does), “does his family know?” (yeah, they do), and more kept me flying through the pages to see what happened next. The games his family plays are just… diabolical.
I love that this author really embraces the dark side. Some authors in this genre dip their toe into the dark pool. Sam Mariano goes running past those weenies and does a cannonball right into the deep end, jackknife leg and all.
If you are a fan of the dark romance/dark suspense genre like I am (“fan” is putting it mildly) then you will love this book. Also, make sure you have a LOT of free time so you can immediately move on to the remaining books in the series. Because you will. You’re welcome for the warning.
