FBI agent, Eden Collins is going home... to catch a killer. Fans of Audey Harte’s It Takes One and Kendra Elliott's Bone Secrets series, will devour The Devil’s Daughter, the fast-paced and suspenseful first book, in the Hidden Sins series by NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Katee Robert.
Growing up in a small town isn’t easy, especially when you’re the daughter of a local cult leader. Ten years ago, Eden Collins left Clear Springs, Montana, and never once looked back. But when the bodies of murdered young women surface, their corpses violated and marked with tattoos worn by her mother’s followers, Eden, now an FBI agent, can’t turn a blind eye. To catch the killer, she’s going to have to return to the fold.
Sheriff Zach Owens isn’t comfortable putting Eden in danger, even if she is an elite agent. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to be so attracted to her. As calm and cool as she appears, he knows this can’t be a happy homecoming. Zach wants to protect her—from her mother, the cult, and the evil that lurks behind its locked gates. But Eden is his only key to the tight-lipped group, and she may just be closer to the killer than either one of them suspects

The Devil's Daughter is a big step away from the usual Katee Robert fare - and I like it!
This book is a lot darker, grittier than her other books i have read. It is full of suspense, drama, murder and mystery. There were so many twists and turns, that every time I thought I knew what was going to happen next.
BAM. I was wrong.
I did throw out a hail mary guess of who the bad guy was about 75% of the way into the book, and whilst I was right in the who (goodness knows how I got it right!) the when and why was a real surprise.
This book focuses more on the suspense than the romance - but I am ok with that. There was always that undercurrent of attraction between Zach and Eden but I was glad that it was kind of in the background most of the time.
I enjoyed the characters, the story line kept me intrigued, and I really did like the darker feel to this book.
Now I am impatiently waiting to see what Ms Robert brings us next.
