Book Summary

Do the mistakes of the past mark us as guilty for life?

After a childhood marred by neglect, Jessie Duval’s finally got it together. With an apartment in Nashville and a job with a catering company, she’s thriving.

But all that changes when Jessie works an event where celebrities will be in attendance–including the one person from her past she must avoid at all costs: singer Shelly James. Jessie doesn’t hate Shelly. Quite the opposite. One summer, she followed Shelly’s tour everywhere. Only, Shelly wasn’t flattered; she was terrified by Jessie’s devotion–especially after Jessie was arrested. But after a year of therapy, Jessie understands what happened. She’s not the same person anymore.

Jessie keeps her head down, but when Shelly is found dead, Jessie’s troubled past comes tumbling out and she quickly becomes a suspect in the high-profile murder. As the police close in on her, ignoring other credible leads, Jessie realizes Shelly’s murder will be pinned on her–the perfect scapegoat–unless she finds the real killer. And no one knows Shelly’s life and inner circle better than her. But she will have to go deeper into the dark–if ever she wants to find her way out.

    I enjoyed Mr Jacobs first book, And Then You Were Gone, so I was excited to read Somewhere in the Dark!

    I thought this was a wonderful mystery, it’s a quick read with page total coming in under 300. I loved the uniqueness of this book along with Jessie, the main character. She is a loveable character and Mr Jacobs did a wonderful job of portraying her mental health issues along with her struggles to move forward. I loved how the setting of Nashville was brought to life in this book. The atmosphere was great and really allowed me to find myself escaping into the story.

    I would recommend this story to mystery lovers, fans of RJ Jacobs, and those who enjoy unique and atmospheric thrillers.
