Hanover House by Brenda Novak


Welcome to Hanover House….

Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them? 

After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager–by her high school boyfriend–she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst. 

But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries. 

He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong…


Evelyn Talbot is a hard working psychiatrist determined to find the mystery within the psychopaths’ mind.   After her horrific experience as a teenager, which led her to this quest, she establishes a medical center, remote Alaska, devoted to this cause. 

This is a wonderful read. It has a little bit of everything, intrigue, danger, romance and an outstanding setting. Evelyn and Amorok are great together. With his protective nature and her damaged psyche, it makes the reader gasp in places, especially when Evelyn finds herself in peril once again.

I read this in one sitting on an airplane and it was a perfect read for the trip. I was able to only focus on the book and turn off everything around me. It kept me enamoured through the whole flight. 

I received this novel from Netgalley for an honest review.

    Great review, as always, though I have to admit, I will have to think about reading this one.
