  • A Flicker in the Dark

    Chloe Davis is a medical psychologist with a dark family history. Chloe is currently happy and in love, engaged to Daniel. But history seems to be repeating itself. With A Flicker in the Dark Stacy Willingham manages to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. I want to thank NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for an early copy to review.

  • Another Great Debut!!

    Wow, another great debut that I can’t believe is a debut! The author pulls you in and never lets you go until the end. If you enjoy suspense and excitement throughout the story, you will enjoy this book. I can’t wait to see what the author brings us next!

  • Engrossing, Fast Paced, Suspenseful

    Set in small town Louisiana, aptly entitled A Flicker in the Dark is the first book by Stacy Willingham. Main character Chloe Davis is a psychologist who knows how to treat others...and surely herself. She is successful and engaged to marry the man she loves in a few months. But twenty years ago, her father confessed to killing six young girls and was subsequently imprisoned for life. Chloe knows trauma and as a psychologist has a wealth of experience to offer clients. When a young girl disappears, Chloe's senses are on hyper alert as she vividly recalls details of the earlier killings. She becomes involved in the case, discovers secret after secret and becomes obsessed to a point. She questions everything. Suspenseful twists happen until the end, making this an absorbing read. Immerse yourself in this fast-paced story, especially if you are keen to discover new authors. I wonder what Stacy Willingham has in store next? My sincere thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the privilege of reading this riveting new thriller!

  • Predictable

    Not a bad debut, but this one was not for me. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. The concept was good but the development of the storyline was very predictable and, although I wasn’t bored, I did not feel the thrill. I wished that there was one more POV. The main character was too neurotic. I did not like being in her head. Anyways, as my fellow readers loved this book, I will leave it like that.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Promising Debut Thriller

    4.25 flickering stars This promising debut writer has created a compelling psychological thriller. Our main character, Chloe Davis, was just 12 when her town is rocked by six missing teenage girls in Breaux Bridges, Louisiana. Then Chloe’s world turns upside down as her father is arrested and jailed as the serial killer. Flash forward 20 years and now Chloe is a psychologist in private practice in Baton Rouge. After a very rough childhood, she turned to psychology to help others and maybe heal herself. However, Chloe does too much self-medicating which made me doubt her creditability as a narrator. She’s engaged to Daniel and hopes that she is about to take control of her life. Her brother, Coop, doesn’t like Daniel though and soon Chloe starts to have doubts too. Things are further complicated by a new pattern emerging of missing teens in Baton Rouge. Is a copycat killer at work here? This one really picked up for me in the second half. I didn’t find it a perfect thriller, but I did enjoy it and was surprised by some of the twists!

    Thanks for your feedback!
