At nineteen-years-old, college student Josie Stratton was kidnapped by a madman and held shackled for ten months in an abandoned warehouse before she finally escaped her hellish prison.

Eight years later, when the body of a young woman is found chained in the basement of a vacant house, Cincinnati Police Detective Zach Copeland is instantly reminded of the crime committed against Josie Stratton. Zach was just a rookie on the perimeter of that case, but he’s never forgotten the traumatized woman with the haunted eyes.

As more information emerges, the crimes take on an even more sinister similarity. But Josie’s attacker died by suicide. Does the city have a copycat on its hands? A killer who picked up where the original perpetrator left off? Or are they facing something far more insidious?

Josie has spent the last eight years attempting to get her life back on track, but now there’s a very real chance she could be the unknown suspect’s next target. As Zach vows to keep her safe, and Josie finds herself responding to him in a way she hasn’t responded to any man in almost a decade, the investigation takes on an even more complex edge of danger.

As past and present collide, Josie and Zach are thrust toward a shocking and chilling truth. A revelation that threatens not only Josie’s life, but everything she’s been fighting so desperately to reclaim.

Woooooowwwww! I was unprepared for this one. First of all Mia Sheridan is one of my favorite authors. I’m obsessed with her writing. The emotion she evokes from you is next level. Having said all that, I wasn’t ready for Where the Blame Lies.

I went in blind only knowing from a friend that it was a little dark. I’ve read a lot of dark books and this one is definitelyyyyy on the dark side but please don’t let that deter you from reading it.

I love Josie. She is the exact type of person I would hope to be in her circumstances. A fighter, resilient, determined, I could go on. She’s been through some things, an understatement but you need to read it to see for yourself.

Zach is sooooo freaking amazing. He’s a gorgeous detective assigned to protect Josie and work on the ongoing case. He’s so supportive and caring and I just love him so much. I also am a huge fan of his partner Jimmy, such a sweet man.

I’m rating this book 5 stars because it was an incredible, psychotic, beautiful, shocking, CAN’T PUT IT DOWN, story and I highly recommend it. Even if you’re not a true crime lover I recommend it because it’s Mia effin Sheridan.  If you’ve never read her before, I’ll try not to judge you but GET ON IT, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
