This is a truly remarkable book. Kim Carter has outdone herself with this release.
We have Lizzie, a waitress from a small town, who falls in love with an incredibly successful cardiac surgeon. Within no time, she finds herself married, happy beyond belief. But the honeymoon period doesn't last long. Before she knows it he reveals his true nature; he becomes mean and possessive. It escalates to the point where she feels trapped and desperately wants out. Especially when Lizzie discovers his dark secret. A secret that he didn't want her to find out. The only chance of survival is to seek refuge at her sister's house. But that won't stop him hunting her down.
Not long after being at her sisters does a new mystery become apparent. Lizzie becomes involved in an equally dangerous enigma. She knows it would be wise to stay away, but the graveyard is calling her name. Which revelation will kill her first?
Kim develops superb characters in this enticing, compelling novel. We become attached to Lizzie and are deeply affected by each and every move she makes, constantly tense at the dangers that are pursuing her. The complexities within not only the protagonist but the other characters are what makes the tale so riveting.
Then we have two enthralling storylines intertwined. Each one alone would be enough to make a superb book. Yet Kim goes the extra mile for her readers, giving us an exhilarating journey that we'll never forget. Not to mention the seemingly endless twists and turns.
The author has a great writing style; it is both descriptive and suspenseful. Everything is rendered in great detail. From the location, characters, and emotions. I also noticed a trademark of Kim's writing style is short chapters ending in sensational cliffhangers.
Overall, it is an extraordinary read. The conclusion is almost as fantastic as the book itself. I sense history enthusiasts will appreciate the ending, as well as hopeless romantics.
'Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle' is a story of crime, mystery and shocking discoveries. A page-turner you will not be able to put down. Clear up your calendar because this phenomenal mystery is ready to take up all your time. Once you start this book, you won't be able to stop. Guaranteed!
