The Dead Season by Tessa Wegert


Release Date: December 8, 2020 

About The Book:

Senior Investigator Shana Merchant has spent years running from her past. But she never imagined a murder case would drive her to the most dangerous place of all—home. 

After leaving the NYPD following her abduction by serial killer Blake Bram, Shana Merchant hoped for a fresh start in the Thousand Islands of Upstate New York. Her former tormentor has other plans. Shana and Bram share more than just a hometown, and he won’t let her forget it. When the decades-old skeleton of Shana’s estranged uncle is uncovered, Bram issues a challenge: Return home to Vermont and solve the cold case, or the blood he spills next will be on her hands.

As Shana interviews members of her family and the community, mining for secrets that could help her solve her uncle’s murder, she begins to realize how little she remembers of her childhood. And when Bram grows impatient and kidnaps again, leaving a trail of clues Shana alone can understand, she knows his new victim will only survive if she wins the psychopath’s twisted game. In order to solve one mystery, Shana must wade into her murky past to unravel another.

My thoughts

Guys...if you have not read this book...OMG you need to! I finished it the last part of December and guess what? It flew to the top of my 2021 top 10 list! Right?!

I loved Death in the Family..but I loved this one even more. My favorite thing about Death in the Family was Shana's story...I wanted more...and we get it in this story!

Shana goes back to her small town after her missing uncle's body is found...the thing is...home is also home to serial killer Blake Bram...the one that has taunted her that they have a past...the one that held her captive in his basement...the one that is in her thoughts...ever single day....We not only find out more about Shana...we get the scoop on Bram!!

I am not usually one to pick up a series...but now I am! This could be read as a stand alone...but it is even better if you have  read the first book...and why wouldn't you?! It was fantastic!

Wait...what?! Tessa Wegert you can't do this to me!!! That ending!!! Now I can't wait to get my hands on Dead Wind!!
