by Tanya Holmes
Genre: Gothic Paranormal Romance with a Twist
Release Date: October 19, 2015

The job seems simple enough at first: go undercover and catch her best friend’s killer. But psychic detective Denieve Knight gets more than she bargained for when she enters Dr. Braeden Frost’s estate as a “housekeeper.”

She's supposed to be sleuthing, not falling under the spell of the enigmatic doctor and his irrepressible, hellion of a brother, Xavier.

Now after two months of working for the man known as “Dr. Death,” she's entangled in a web of secrets and lies. Each discovery only leads to more questions. Though faced with declining health and a storm of confusing feelings and simmering passion for both brothers, Denieve is determined to uncover the truth---consequences be damned. Yet the truth may prove deadly once she discovers just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

(4 stars) 

This duology is filled with some shocking revelations and twists. So do not read this review if you haven't read Book 1.

*might contain spoiler from Book 1*

Denieve Knight is a psychic detective that went undercover into Dr. Braeden Frost's estate to investigate his possible involvement in the nineteen deaths of his patients. Little did she plan to fall in love with the enigmatic and secretive man and get caught up in his web of lies.

Braeden Frost, well he is a man with too many secrets? And his twin, Xavier, is his reckless, impulsive other half. Now that Denieve's life is probably in danger, Braeden has to make some difficult decision and drastic measure to ensure her survival with the help from Xavier.

In The Darkest Frost, Tanya Holmes had crafted a brilliantly unique paranormal story that boggle my mind. The world building that she created was uniquely hers and flawless. The way she connecting all the dots just prove how she planned everything right from the beginning. I wish I actually read both the books back to back, so I remember everything exactly as it is. 

I know this is technically not a triangle, but I can't help but had a strong feeling of 'I am Team Braeden'. After witnessing what Denieve went through, that just prove howhuman I am. I know I'm not making much sense with my rant here, but anyway, for a love triangle hater, I was really satisfy with how this messed up trio solve their problem in the end. 

Overall, this series is unique, awesome, kickass and brilliant. If you are a paranormal lover, you don't want to miss this.
