The Comfort of Black Review and Giveaway

Though they seem to have everything, Hannah Parks has watched her husband, Dallin, become increasingly distant. Her hope is buoyed when the couple decides to start a family, but what Dallin reveals in his sleep one night rocks Hannah to her core. As she starts to investigate a much darker side of Dallin than she ever knew existed, Hannah peels away the layers of a diseased relationship closely tied to her own abusive past. When Dallin attempts to have Hannah abducted, she is forced to run, doing so with the aid of a man named Black—an ex-con and expert at helping people disappear. Together they must keep Hannah safe from her husband's far-reaching grasp, all the while trying to solve the mystery behind Dallin's sudden violence. Does Hannah's dark family history hold the key to her survival?

The Comfort of Black will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, A. S. A. Harrison, and Lisa Gardner.

My Review:
4 stars

For a debut novel, I was very pleasantly surprised. The characters were interesting and well-written, particularly Hannah, who grows into a strong female protagonist throughout the story. The plot was interesting, with plot twists and surprises throughout.

The ending surprised me as I didn’t see it coming, which was a bonus in my book, even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the way the book ended. I also liked how the author added an epilogue that answered all my remaining questions, though I would be interested in seeing even further down the line. I won’t say any more than that, as it would ruin the story.

All in all, this was a strong debut for Wilson and even though I didn’t always like or agree with the author’s writing choices, I would still definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great psychological or mystery read.
