About the Book:

Chevy Stevens, the acclaimed and beloved author of Still Missing is back with her most breathtaking thriller yet in Dark Roads.

For decades, people have been warned about the Cold Creek Highway. Hitchhikers have vanished along it over the years, and women have been known to have their cars break down… and never be seen again. When Hailey McBride decides to run away from an unbearable living situation, she thinks that her outdoor skills will help her disappear into the Cold Creek wilderness, and she counts on people thinking that she was the victim of the killer.

One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek to attend a memorial for the victims of the highway, but it might as well be one week for the amount of pain that Beth is still dealing with after her sister, Amber, was murdered the previous summer. Beth has quit university, is lying to her parents, and popping pills like Tic Tacs. Maybe this will finally bring her peace.

When she gets a job at a local diner where Amber once worked, she connects with people who knew her sister. Beth wants to find who killed her sister and put her own life back together, but as she gets closer to the truth, she learns that there is more than one person lying in Cold Creek.

My Review:
I was completely enthralled with this Thriller!

Great characters – a couple that I absolutely loved and a couple that I absolutely hated.  That’s what great writing allows, the ability to love and hate the represented characters.

The story line was interesting with a couple of twists and some unexpected events.  I could see this as a movie in my mind.  One where I would just turn off all the lights and get lost in the story for 2 hours straight.  So good!

I highly recommend this one and the narrators for the audiobook did a wonderful job.  4.5 stars!
