"Since her husband died, Eden Wallace's life has diminished down to a tiny pinprick, like a far-off star in the night sky. She doesn't work, has given up on her love of photography, and is so plagued by night terrors that she can't sleep without the lights on. Everyone, including her family, has grown weary of her grief. So when she finds paperwork in her husband's effects indicating that he reserved a week at a dark sky park, she goes. She's ready to shed her fear and return to the living, even if it means facing her paralyzing phobia of the dark. But when she arrives at the park, the guest suite she thought was a private retreat is teeming with a group of twenty-somethings, all stuck in the orbit of their old college friendships. Horrified that her get-away has been taken over, Eden decides to head home the next day. But then a scream wakes the house in the middle of the night. One of the friends has been murdered. Now everyone--including Eden--is a suspect. Everyone is keeping secrets, but only one is a murderer. As mishaps continue to befall the group, Eden must make sense of the chaos and lies to evade a ruthless killer--and she'll have to do it before dark falls ..."-- Provided by publisher.

Excellent! Great author, imaginative, learned, thorough research done, succeeds at conveying moods with sensitivity and insight. Also focuses on Panic Attacks, PTSD, military life and many more social issues. The story is complex, not difficult. Like a locked room mystery. The setting of the murder is a Dark Sky Park, a novel setting for a mystery & based on the Headlands Dark Sky Park, Emmet Park, Straits of Mackinac, Michigan. I was excited to learn about Dark Sky Parks, (had never heard this term) viewing the stars, constellations & Northern Lights UNDER A DARK SKY, a rare phenomenon today. I am inspired to drive up to Straits of Mackinaw to view the Northern Lights, etc. from a dark sky. The “Headlands” became one of the 10 international Dark Sky Parks in the world in 2011. It will stay dark and protected, forever, thanks to a commitment by the Emmet County Board of Commissioners. The characters created are interesting, the story complex but not difficult, unputdownable. Touches on our lives, married and single, from perspectives of 35+ yr. olds versus younger people who are just beginning their careers. Interesting philosophical musings on marriage, perception on marriage when we are young, and again, after 10+ yrs. of married life. The young crowd in this story plan a reunion at the guest house located in the sky park and are reminiscent of the characters on "Friends" as perceived by middle aged people. A widow is also booked to stay in the suite at the guest house. Both parties thought they would have the entire house to themselves. The tale begins when all 6 arrive at the guest house. Loved the book, am already starting another of her books, "The Day I Died". 6 Stars, no doubt in this readers' mind!
