DANGEROUS GAMES ARE PLAYED AT NIGHT…

Emily’s dad is accused of killing a teenage girl in the woods. Emily is sure he’s innocent, but struggles to work out what actually happened that night. That is, until she crosses paths with Damon, the boyfriend of the dead girl. Maybe they could help each other?. But Damon has his own secrets about the dangerous games that are being played in the dark.

My review

I think Lucy Christopher has come up with a fairly good idea. But I do feel also this book is more for teenagers to read. Nice short chapters to help teenagers read at their own pace.
 I  am sorry to say that I personally did not connect with characters and for me the story also seemed to drag along in places. I am sure teenagers will enjoy this story more.
  One saturday night in August a Father Jon Shepherd returns back from the woods carrying home a dead girl Ashlee Parker and lays her on the kitchen table. Jon was a war damaged soldier with flashbacks who has a bunker set in the Darkwood Forest. He found Ashlee in the wood and has no idea what happened to her. Jon is to be convicted for either manslaughter or sent for trail for the murder of Ashlee. Emily is convinced her father is innocent and has a connection in the story to Damon the boyfriend of Ashlee. Damon struggles to remember what happened that evening that he and Ashlee were in the woods together playing a dangerous game before she was killed.
