All towns have secrets. Some have demons. Welcome to East Salem, a sleepy town with a history older than America where things are just a bit off; where the supernatural bleeds into the everyday. And where a tragic murder mystery is underway. A high school girl is found dead in the town park; and where forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris wants answers. All the suspects were teenagers who were at the party with her the night before--who he last spoke with on their last high school date forever ago. Yet his celebrity status opens doors barred to Dani--so they form an awkward alliance. They soon realize that there's more to the mystery than murder. And more to the evil they are facing than a mere human killer.

Customer Reviews for Waking Hours, East Salem Series #1
Waking Hours is an exciting and suspenseful beginning to the East Salem Trilogy. I can’t wait to begin reading the second book, which is unusual for me. Normally, I like to wait a while before jumping back into a suspenseful series.
I like both Dani and Tommy, the main female and male characters, because they are both intelligent and not given to impulsive decisions or behavior. I also enjoy the little romantic element to their relationship.
Waking Hours is a many-layered novel. It seems very well-balanced to me. There are some creepy and gory scenes, but they are written with logic and not just put there for sensationalization.

Held my interest throughout the story
Date:June 5, 2013
Good vs. evil is the core theme of this exciting book. Each character was interesting and believable. The more I learned about Dani and Tommy, the more invested I became in their survival. When I realized the book was close to ending I saw the second book was available and ordered it without hesitation. I'm looking forward to seeing where the story will go next. I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a good read that will keep them thinking long after they've finished the book.
