    I love it that I am the first person to mark a book read on Goodreads because I wrote it. Five stars, you betcha. Hope you like it, too. ...

    What a great story! Eden Wallace, who had lost her husband in a fatal car accident nine months before, is so traumatized that she lives her life fearing the dark, and always plans to be home before dark, leaving bright lights on all night. She finds an envelope with reservations he...

    Darn that Lori Rader-Day. I am not a night person, but once I started Under a Dark Sky, I had to stay up and finish it. It's the story of a troubled woman, caught up in an Agatha Christie nightmare. And, it's just right. Eden Wallace's husband, Bix, a war hero, has been dead for nin...

    Under a Dark Sky was really good. The twist and turns had me guessing all through. ...

    Eden has lost her husband in a tragic accident and finds that he has secretly booked a surprise trip to a fairly isolated place they've spoken about in the past. Maybe this is the trip she needed to find some closure. Unfortunately, the trip turns into a nightmare - one in which she le...

    Review to come ...

    While I have loved all of Rader-Day's books, I think this is the best one yet. Fast paced, lots of tension and enough twists to keep you guessing until the end. This will be a thriller I'll be recommending to everyone. ...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. After the death of her husband, a woman grieves. When she finds a week's reservation at a park among her husband's effect, she decides to go, to shake herself out of the doldrums. When she gets there, it turns out a group of college friends ar...

    It's been a few days since I finished the book. I would still give it four stars as it was a well written book and I was turning the pages to find out what was going to happen. I was disappointed somewhat in the ending. It just felt flat to me. Maybe this form of crime fiction is not f...

    A Fast-Paced Mystery Where Everyone Is Suspicious! Eden Wallace is a widow with a debilitating fear of the dark, which has taken over her life. When she discovers that, before he?d passed away, her husband had reserved a getaway for them at a dark sky park, she decides to go, hoping...

    Eden Wallace's life has been a mess since her husband, Bix died in an accident 5 years ago. However she decided to fulfill a reservation he made for 5 years in the future. She has now arrived a private house on a lake north of Chicago, only to find that there had been a mix up in the r...

    I thought this was a fun read. Lots of potential suspects and sorting through the changing possible murderer made it hard to put down. Great beach read or to pass a snowy Saturday. Being perfectly candid though, it?s not the best of its genre and it certainly isn?t a 5-Star book. (...

    The phrase ?off the chain? is a term often used to describe something fantastically good, and so it is in that sense that I say Under a Dark Sky is off the chain. However, the chain runs smooth with the structure and flow of Lori Rader-Day?s brilliant writing. She has everything ...

    This is such a fascinating story. Like Eden, we are dropped into this situation with no knowledge of who the friends are. There is a lot of backstory that we're not privy to and, as a result, it's impossible to know who we can trust (if anyone).  The situation is made even more com...

    From the back cover comes "a terrifying twist on a locked room mystery". I disagree with all of that. Terrifying never happened. The book is too plodding for any suspense. That includes Eden's fear of the dark. The author had her tell the reader about her fear but failed to make it be...

    Eden Wallace has changed since losing her husband Bix. A romantic getaway was in the works for their 10th wed anniversary but sadly she never made it. Just one problem though, she was never invited. Wait?! What?! It was meant for someone else. The reservations were made in advan...

    Eden husband dies. The mystery is finding out how and who's the blame. But Eden goes on a somewhat anniversary that her husband planned before his death but once there she runs into a group of people that's there for star gazing. Eden stays due it's dark she scared of the dark. But whi...

    Thanks to the publisher, via Edelweiss, for an advance egalley in exchange for an honest review! These days, with a busy life outside of reading and far too many books on the TBR, my enjoyment of a book can be marked not just by how quickly I read it but by how obsessively I want to...

    In the year since her husband's death, Eden has become inexplicably afraid of the dark. She sleeps, when she can, during the day and spends each evening holed up in her house with the lights burning. When she finds out that her husband had booked a trip to a dark sky park for their...

    Eden has lost her husband and the will to live. She stops working, gives up her love of photography and sleeps with the lights on. She has night terrors. Her friends and family grow tired of her grief. Among his papers, she finds reservations for a week under the stars and decides to...

    4.5 stars. Under a Dark Sky by Lori Rader-Day is a riveting, suspense-laden murder mystery. Eden Wallace is still grieving the death of her beloved husband, Bix, when she discovers he planned a surprise anniversary getaway for them before his death. Eden goes on the trip which sh...

    This book was atmospheric, creepy, claustrophobic and surprising! I love Lori's writing and her characters and will read every book she writes. ...

    It got boring... I really liked this book until the last 100 pages or so. From that point on it was repetitive and boring. In my opinion it could have ended sooner and it might have kept my interest. The first part of the book was really good I wish it would have had a better ending...

    ?Under a Dark Sky? by Lori Rader-Day follows Eden, a widow whose husband booked a stay for them at Dark Sky Park to celebrate their anniversary, prior to passing. But when Eden arrives, she discovers that there?s been a mix up with reservations and she has to share the house with...

    It seems I'm still on the hunt for a truly "thrilling" psychological thriller. Unfortunately, Under a Dark Sky just didn't measure up. It takes place at a dark sky park (Who knew there was such a thing?). Eden finds the reservation in her dead husbands papers and goes there for a get a...

    While I have loved all of Rader-Day's books, I think this is the best one yet. Fast paced, lots of tension and enough twists to keep you guessing until the end. This will be a thriller I'll be recommending to everyone. ...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. After the death of her husband, a woman grieves. When she finds a week's reservation at a park among her husband's effect, she decides to go, to shake herself out of the doldrums. When she gets there, it turns out a group of college friends ar...

    It's been a few days since I finished the book. I would still give it four stars as it was a well written book and I was turning the pages to find out what was going to happen. I was disappointed somewhat in the ending. It just felt flat to me. Maybe this form of crime fiction is not f...

    A Fast-Paced Mystery Where Everyone Is Suspicious! Eden Wallace is a widow with a debilitating fear of the dark, which has taken over her life. When she discovers that, before he?d passed away, her husband had reserved a getaway for them at a dark sky park, she decides to go, hoping...

    Eden Wallace's life has been a mess since her husband, Bix died in an accident 5 years ago. However she decided to fulfill a reservation he made for 5 years in the future. She has now arrived a private house on a lake north of Chicago, only to find that there had been a mix up in the r...

    I thought this was a fun read. Lots of potential suspects and sorting through the changing possible murderer made it hard to put down. Great beach read or to pass a snowy Saturday. Being perfectly candid though, it?s not the best of its genre and it certainly isn?t a 5-Star book. (...

    The phrase ?off the chain? is a term often used to describe something fantastically good, and so it is in that sense that I say Under a Dark Sky is off the chain. However, the chain runs smooth with the structure and flow of Lori Rader-Day?s brilliant writing. She has everything ...

    This is such a fascinating story. Like Eden, we are dropped into this situation with no knowledge of who the friends are. There is a lot of backstory that we're not privy to and, as a result, it's impossible to know who we can trust (if anyone).  The situation is made even more com...

    In the year since her husband's death, Eden has become inexplicably afraid of the dark. She sleeps, when she can, during the day and spends each evening holed up in her house with the lights burning. When she finds out that her husband had booked a trip to a dark sky park for their...

    Eden has lost her husband and the will to live. She stops working, gives up her love of photography and sleeps with the lights on. She has night terrors. Her friends and family grow tired of her grief. Among his papers, she finds reservations for a week under the stars and decides to...

    4.5 stars. Under a Dark Sky by Lori Rader-Day is a riveting, suspense-laden murder mystery. Eden Wallace is still grieving the death of her beloved husband, Bix, when she discovers he planned a surprise anniversary getaway for them before his death. Eden goes on the trip which sh...

    This book was atmospheric, creepy, claustrophobic and surprising! I love Lori's writing and her characters and will read every book she writes. ...

    It got boring... I really liked this book until the last 100 pages or so. From that point on it was repetitive and boring. In my opinion it could have ended sooner and it might have kept my interest. The first part of the book was really good I wish it would have had a better ending...

    ?Under a Dark Sky? by Lori Rader-Day follows Eden, a widow whose husband booked a stay for them at Dark Sky Park to celebrate their anniversary, prior to passing. But when Eden arrives, she discovers that there?s been a mix up with reservations and she has to share the house with...

    It seems I'm still on the hunt for a truly "thrilling" psychological thriller. Unfortunately, Under a Dark Sky just didn't measure up. It takes place at a dark sky park (Who knew there was such a thing?). Eden finds the reservation in her dead husbands papers and goes there for a get a...

    I loved the premise of a woman afraid of the dark confronting her fears all alone in a dark sky park. I was looking forward to some really terrifying scenes that happened under the dark sky, but for the most part the protagonist just talked about everything she did to avoid the dark. I...

    I have gotten to the point that the vast majority of mysteries I read are police procedurals, with some forays into the "cozy." This is neither; I might call it a psychological amateur sleuth mystery? Having a hard time deciding which of several new series books to read first, I decide...

    I like stories where the narrator?s own truth shifts during the telling of the story, and this novel didn?t disappoint. Eden?s life and situation seem very clear cut, but as more of her past is revealed during the course of the novel, we learn that all is not as it seems! Well do...

    With friends like these, who needs enemies? Another 'who dunnit' that keeps you guessing. I must have changed my mind a handful of times regarding my top suspects. This is a well written page turner that will keep you up at night...just like our protagonist, Eden Wallace. Loved the end...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. After the death of her husband, a woman grieves. When she finds a week's reservation at a park among her husband's effect, she decides to go, to shake herself out of the doldrums. When she gets there, it turns out a group of college friends ar...

    A Fast-Paced Mystery Where Everyone Is Suspicious! Eden Wallace is a widow with a debilitating fear of the dark, which has taken over her life. When she discovers that, before he?d passed away, her husband had reserved a getaway for them at a dark sky park, she decides to go, hoping...

    Eden Wallace's life has been a mess since her husband, Bix died in an accident 5 years ago. However she decided to fulfill a reservation he made for 5 years in the future. She has now arrived a private house on a lake north of Chicago, only to find that there had been a mix up in the r...

    I thought this was a fun read. Lots of potential suspects and sorting through the changing possible murderer made it hard to put down. Great beach read or to pass a snowy Saturday. Being perfectly candid though, it?s not the best of its genre and it certainly isn?t a 5-Star book. (...

    The phrase ?off the chain? is a term often used to describe something fantastically good, and so it is in that sense that I say Under a Dark Sky is off the chain. However, the chain runs smooth with the structure and flow of Lori Rader-Day?s brilliant writing. She has everything ...

    This is such a fascinating story. Like Eden, we are dropped into this situation with no knowledge of who the friends are. There is a lot of backstory that we're not privy to and, as a result, it's impossible to know who we can trust (if anyone).  The situation is made even more com...

    From the back cover comes "a terrifying twist on a locked room mystery". I disagree with all of that. Terrifying never happened. The book is too plodding for any suspense. That includes Eden's fear of the dark. The author had her tell the reader about her fear but failed to make it be...

    This is such a fascinating story. Like Eden, we are dropped into this situation with no knowledge of who the friends are. There is a lot of backstory that we're not privy to and, as a result, it's impossible to know who we can trust (if anyone).  The situation is made even more com...

    From the back cover comes "a terrifying twist on a locked room mystery". I disagree with all of that. Terrifying never happened. The book is too plodding for any suspense. That includes Eden's fear of the dark. The author had her tell the reader about her fear but failed to make it be...

    Eden Wallace has changed since losing her husband Bix. A romantic getaway was in the works for their 10th wed anniversary but sadly she never made it. Just one problem though, she was never invited. Wait?! What?! It was meant for someone else. The reservations were made in advan...

    Thanks to the publisher, via Edelweiss, for an advance egalley in exchange for an honest review! These days, with a busy life outside of reading and far too many books on the TBR, my enjoyment of a book can be marked not just by how quickly I read it but by how obsessively I want to...

    In the year since her husband's death, Eden has become inexplicably afraid of the dark. She sleeps, when she can, during the day and spends each evening holed up in her house with the lights burning. When she finds out that her husband had booked a trip to a dark sky park for their...

    Eden has lost her husband and the will to live. She stops working, gives up her love of photography and sleeps with the lights on. She has night terrors. Her friends and family grow tired of her grief. Among his papers, she finds reservations for a week under the stars and decides to...

    4.5 stars. Under a Dark Sky by Lori Rader-Day is a riveting, suspense-laden murder mystery. Eden Wallace is still grieving the death of her beloved husband, Bix, when she discovers he planned a surprise anniversary getaway for them before his death. Eden goes on the trip which sh...

    This book was atmospheric, creepy, claustrophobic and surprising! I love Lori's writing and her characters and will read every book she writes. ...

    It got boring... I really liked this book until the last 100 pages or so. From that point on it was repetitive and boring. In my opinion it could have ended sooner and it might have kept my interest. The first part of the book was really good I wish it would have had a better ending...

    Darn that Lori Rader-Day. I am not a night person, but once I started Under a Dark Sky, I had to stay up and finish it. It's the story of a troubled woman, caught up in an Agatha Christie nightmare. And, it's just right. Eden Wallace's husband, Bix, a war hero, has been dead for nin...

    Under a Dark Sky was really good. The twist and turns had me guessing all through. ...

    Eden has lost her husband in a tragic accident and finds that he has secretly booked a surprise trip to a fairly isolated place they've spoken about in the past. Maybe this is the trip she needed to find some closure. Unfortunately, the trip turns into a nightmare - one in which she le...

    Review to come ...

    While I have loved all of Rader-Day's books, I think this is the best one yet. Fast paced, lots of tension and enough twists to keep you guessing until the end. This will be a thriller I'll be recommending to everyone. ...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. After the death of her husband, a woman grieves. When she finds a week's reservation at a park among her husband's effect, she decides to go, to shake herself out of the doldrums. When she gets there, it turns out a group of college friends ar...

    It's been a few days since I finished the book. I would still give it four stars as it was a well written book and I was turning the pages to find out what was going to happen. I was disappointed somewhat in the ending. It just felt flat to me. Maybe this form of crime fiction is not f...

    It seems I'm still on the hunt for a truly "thrilling" psychological thriller. Unfortunately, Under a Dark Sky just didn't measure up. It takes place at a dark sky park (Who knew there was such a thing?). Eden finds the reservation in her dead husbands papers and goes there for a get a...

    I loved the premise of a woman afraid of the dark confronting her fears all alone in a dark sky park. I was looking forward to some really terrifying scenes that happened under the dark sky, but for the most part the protagonist just talked about everything she did to avoid the dark. I...
