Book Review: “Don’t Open the Door” by Regan Merritt (Book 2 in the Series)

Drama, suspense, and heartbreak take center stage in Allison Brennan’s latest thriller novel, Tell No Lies. The book follows US Marshal Regan Merritt, a grieving mother who lost her son to a killer and must now confront secrets from her past to uncover the truth about his murder.

The book opens with a heart-wrenching scene of Regan standing over her son’s grave, haunted by the memories of his death. She had never believed the FBI’s theory that her job was the reason behind her son’s murder, but as the case goes cold, Regan is forced to walk away from her job, her ex-husband Grant, and everything else that reminds her of her loss.

However, everything changes when Regan receives a mysterious voice message from her former boss, Tommy. The message is cryptic and full of secrets, and before Regan can return his call, Tommy is found murdered. The evidence points to Grant as the killer’s actual target, but he refuses to talk, leaving Regan to uncover the truth on her own.

The more Regan digs, the more she discovers that there’s a larger, sinister conspiracy at play. At every turn, she’s forced to confront her own past – her failed marriage, her mistakes as a parent, and her own trauma. As danger looms closer, Regan must piece together the puzzle to find the killer and protect those she loves.

Brennan’s writing is addictive and engaging, filled with suspense, twists, and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats. The book’s pacing is excellent, never lagging, and always moving the story forward. The characters are well-developed and relatable, especially Regan, who feels like a real person with real struggles.

The book’s highlight is its vivid imagery, transporting readers to the scenes of the crime and engaging all senses. You can feel the fear and heartache on every page, and Brennan’s ability to evoke emotions is commendable. The dialogues are crisp and natural, making the book a breeze to read.

Despite the heavy subject matter, Brennan manages to inject some light-hearted moments in the book, providing readers with some much-needed relief. There are even a few Easter eggs hidden throughout the novel that tie into Brennan’s wider universe, making it an enjoyable read for long-time fans.

Overall, Tell No Lies is a thrilling, heart-pounding read that will keep readers engaged until the very end.
