BLURB:
Abigail Farmer knows one thing, the funeral home business...

By day, she works at her family's funeral home. By night, she lives alone on its upper floor. With her stepfather, Sam, about to retire, Abigail is convinced there is only one person who can run the business effectively, her.

However, her life at the funeral home changes when Hasten Holmes arrives.

Ready for his first day on the job Hasten is met by a reluctant Abigail who hopes Sam sends him packing after they exchange unpleasantries.

Reluctant to get too close to anyone, especially someone who's associated with Stu--Sam's lowlife friend and wannabe business partner--Abigail deliberately keeps things strictly professional between them.

Then something unexpected happens...

Abigail's plans to take charge of the family business take a drastic turn when she finds the mutilated body of one of their clients, and it becomes apparent that there's more going on in the funeral home as a sinister plot begins to reveal itself.

Review: 

A Voice In The Dark is a wonderful novella that will appeal to lovers of thrillers and romantic suspense.

The story revolves around the goings on at Abigail Farmer's family funeral home. Her stepfather is getting ready to turn the business over to her, but there are some strange things going on, and some pretty shady people working at the funeral home.

Stu is a real "creeper" and you have to wonder how he keeps his job with the way he acts. He's downright "icky."

Then things start happening around some of the bodies coming in. (Not so nice things) 

I liked Abigail. She's a tough cookie. especially as there were things that happened in her past that might make her otherwise. Hasten makes an interesting friend/boyfriend for her.

The story moved along at a fast pace, but it didn't feel rushed. Isla unveils things in the funeral home just fast enough, and it keeps the reader on the edge of their seat waiting for more.

My only gripe is that this is a novella, and I really would have loved at least another 100 pages so I could get to know a few of the characters a bit better.

This book is part of the Dark Plots series, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that that means there will be more of Abigal and Hasten in the future.
