Release Day Review: Where the Truth Lives by Mia Sheridan

April 01, 2020

When the director of a local mental health hospital is found murdered and mutilated, Homicide Detective Reed Davies is first on scene. What was done to the body is gruesome. Inexplicable. But Reed is dealt another curveball when he finds that the doctor who discovered the victim is someone Reed is intimately familiar with—a woman with whom he shared one passionate night weeks before.

Dr. Elizabeth Nolan is somehow tangled up in the crime, and even while Reed must now question her possible involvement, he can’t help being drawn to the beautiful, enigmatic woman.

As more bodies appear and the devious killer terrorizes Cincinnati, a shocking connection begins to emerge, one that not only involves Dr. Nolan, but Reed himself. A connection more twisted and elaborate than he can imagine. Now Reed must hunt the monster down, a killer who will stop at nothing to see his diabolical plan to its final, deadly conclusion.

The follow-up to Where the Blame Lies Where the Truth Lives is a gripping, page-turning, romantic thriller that will leave you gasping for breath.

Where the Truth Lives is a great follow-up to Where the Blame Lies. I was already impressed by Mia Sheridan's ability to write a romantic suspense, so I was pretty excited when she announced that she was writing another book in this subgenre. This book takes place in the future and focuses on Homicide Detective Reed Davies and Dr. Elizabeth Nolan, but you'll get to see what the previous main characters are up to. The story was very intriguing and kept me guessing until the end. I think unpredictability is very important in this subgenre, and I think the author did an incredible job in that aspect. The suspense was also done really well, and I enjoyed seeing the detectives try to solve the case. It definitely wasn't easy and I enjoyed not knowing what was going on, and trying to figure out how everything was connected. There were also a couple of unexpected twists that were incorporated perfectly into the story.

The chemistry between Reed and Elizabeth was strong and I thought they made a great couple. I loved that the main characters were wrestling with their own demons, and that the author really took the time for them to overcome those. There was no rushing and everything felt organic, which made me enjoy the development of the romance between Reed and Elizabeth more. Reed was just such an incredible guy and so supportive of Elizabeth. I completely fell in love with him. Where the Truth Lives is a very suspenseful romance novel. There were even moments where I couldn't contain my tears, and that really shows how connected I was to the story and characters. I loved everything about this book, however I would've wanted for the main characters to spend more time together. Mia Sheridan is so talented and I really hope she will continue to write more books in this subgenre.
