This week’s ‘Waiting On’ Wednesday book choice is DARKENING SKIES by one of my favourite Australian Authors Bronwyn Parry! Bronwyn writes what’s typically known as romantic suspense but what I tend to call ‘pure awesome fiction’. She writes the kind of books that suck you into the story within a matter of sentences and holds you captive until the books ends. When I read her books I don’t eat, drink or sleep. I simply read and that’s the way I like it 🙂

Award-winning investigative reporter Jennifer Barrett never planned to return to Dungirri, the dying town she’d escaped at seventeen. But the shock resignation and startling revelations of local Federal MP Mark Strelitz have reopened the police investigation into the long-ago accident that killed her cousin, and Jenn is determined to find the truth, even if it proves that the close friend of her youth has become just another politician with a convenient case of amnesia.
For eighteen years, the hole in Mark Strelitz’s memory has concealed the truth: that he was the driver of the car in which Paula Barrett died. The investigation was corrupt, another man framed and sent to prison, and now Mark needs to set things right, whatever the personal cost.
But as Jenn and Mark ask questions about the old crime, new crimes occur; the murder of witnesses, the destruction of evidence. Despite the risks, neither of them can give up their search for answers but the further they delve into the district’s seedy past, the more questions they find – and the more danger. Someone wants the past to remain buried, and those investigating it to be stopped – permanently.
