When Paris Peralta is arrested in her own bathroom—covered in blood, holding a straight razor, her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub behind her—she knows she’ll be charged with murder. But as bad as this looks, it’s not what worries her the most. With the unwanted media attention now surrounding her, it’s only a matter of time before someone from her long hidden past recognizes her and destroys the new life she’s worked so hard to build, along with any chance of a future.
Twenty-five years earlier, Ruby Reyes, known as the Ice Queen, was convicted of a similar murder in a trial that riveted Canada in the early nineties. Reyes knows who Paris really is, and when she’s unexpectedly released from prison, she threatens to expose all of Paris’s secrets. Left with no other choice, Paris must finally confront the dark past she escaped, once and for all.
Because the only thing worse than a murder charge are two murder charges.
Jennifer Hillier, author of Jar of Hearts, returns with another amazing twisty stunner with Things We Do In the Dark. When we first meet Paris, I have to be honest, I didn’t really like her. She just seemed kind of surface and maybe just a gold digger. And because of that it took me a little while to get into the book. So if this is you, keep reading, it gets so good.
When we meet convicted murderer Ruby Reyes, the story really gets going. We learn about about her crimes, and we hear about her daughter, who was good friends with Paris many years ago. Things We Do In the Dark is one of those books that the minute you think you’ve figured out what is happening, turns out you are wrong! Just read it.
