Book Summary From Goodreads


It took years for Adam to stop drowning his regrets in alcohol, and running the local bar doesn’t make it any easier—especially not when everyone he knows gathers there to discuss the shocking allegations that have shattered his hometown. When another murder rocks sleepy Madison to its core, it becomes chillingly clear that even more vicious wounds are waiting to be exposed.


Nothing is sacred anymore, and no one is safe, least of all the mystery woman who shows up in town out of the blue, looking like every fantasy Adam’s ever had. She may have her own dangerous secrets, but she can’t ignore the urgent heat between them any more than he can. As a killer’s quest for vengeance explodes into violence, Adam is tempted to lose himself in the delicious promise of her body—until he realizes he’ll risk anything if she’ll give him her heart…in Sweeter than Sin by Shiloh Walker.

My Thoughts

I have read a few of Shiloh Walker’s books. Sweeter Than Sin is the first book written by Walker that I started reading and didn’t finish. As is usually true with the books I’ve read by Walker, it is filled with dark elements and characters with demons in their closets/troubled pasts. After several attempts to complete this novel, I finally decided to call it quits. No, it wasn’t because it was poorly written. And yes Walker stayed true to what she usually writes, but I felt that the storyline started out a little too dark, and I didn’t like the frequent reminders of the vile acts committed in the small town.

Although Sweeter Than Sin might be for some, this book just wasn’t for me. However, I will continue reading books by Walker, because from the books I’ve read by this author in the past—She Owns Me and Stolen, she skillfully presents difficult topics and brings troubled characters to life.

Actual Rating DNF

I received an e-arc of Sweeter Than Sin from the publisher/NetGalley for this review.
