#BLOGTOUR: We are all the same in the dark by Julia Heaberlin #Gifted #ProvidedForReview @MichaelJBooks @JuliaThrillers @ellamwatkins #WeAreAllTheSameInTheDark

Apologies as I haven’t quite finished this one – August is just going to be a month I am running behind!

But despite not knowing what awaits in the final pages – I already know that We are all the same in the dark by Julie Heaberlin is going to be one of my TOP reads from 2020. I am hooked. Totally. Utterly. Hooked. And after having a bit of a reading slump where I have felt I am reading to push through my burgeoning TBR pile – We are all the same in the dark was a welcome relief when it grabbed me, it dragged me happily into that reading euphoria where I just wanted to sit in the sunshine and devour it in one sitting – sadly that did not happen. LIFE. IS. BUSY.

Anyway if you aren’t familiar with We are all the same in the dark by Julie Heaberlin have a read of the synopsis below and look at the gorgeous and slightly sinister cover design.


It’s been a decade since the town’s sweetheart Trumanell Branson disappeared, leaving only a bloody handprint behind.

Since her disappearance, Tru’s brother, Wyatt, has lived as an outcast, desperate to know what happened to his sister.

So when Wyatt finds a lost girl, he believes she is a sign.

But for new cop, Odette Tucker, this girl’s appearance reopens old wounds.

Determined to solve both cases, Odette fights to save a lost girl in the present and in doing so digs up a shocking truth about that fateful night in the past . . .

Great book blurb, right!?!?

The writing is gorgeous. Julia Heaberlin is a beautiful writer with a real knack for writing eerie, creepy and beautiful descriptive passages – I wish I had highlighted some but I got totally caught up in the story to take notes or highlight – SORRY, not sorry!

The pacing was also spot on. But it was the characters that held my attention. It was Odette that made the book for me – so far! Odette is still a ‘new’ cop in a town where her father ruled the office for years and has left her a legacy that she only some days wants. Odette is flawed. She is real. She is brave. And she is determined. She is absolutely my sort of character. I can’t wait to read the ending and see what happens. And the whole story developing with Wyatt and True never mind Angel is just SO GOOD.

If I give We are all the same in the dark less than 5 stars when I am finished I will be surprised! SURPRISED.

I just realised that I have at least one other of Julia Heaberlin’s books sitting in my TBR pile – Black Eyed-Susans and I am kicking myself for not picking it up SOONER! I’m sure she is going to be a new favourite and auto-buy author of mine.

We are all the same in the dark by Julia Heaberlin gave me chills. CHILLS. And I want more.

I received a copy of We are all the same in the dark by Julia Heaberlin for review from the publisher – Thank you!

Have you read any of her books? Are you excited for this one? Have you read it – will the ending shock me?
