Darkest Before The Dawn is the latest adventure in the Sgt. Winston Windflower mystery series, the popular Maritime tales about a Mountie who finds himself with a new family and a new life in tiny Grand Bank, Newfoundland.  

Ghosts, mysterious deaths, and a new, perplexing character confront Windflower, Tizzard and the other police officers in Grand Bank as they unearth secrets that have been lying hidden in the sleepy hamlet for decades. A fast-moving mystery, Darkest Before The Dawn is also a story of love, loss and learning how to grow old gracefully; a tale of family, community and looking after each other, of not giving up hope . . . just before the dawn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read! Reading Darkest Before the Dawn is like catching up with old friends, if your friends were an RCMP Sergeant and the mayor of a small town in Newfoundland. But all is not well in Grand Bank: there is a string of break-ins, suicide attempts and murders. So Winston Windflower has his hands full, especially with a baby at home and a new B&B that is about to open. The story goes at a good pace, and the descriptions of Newfoundland and its weather are beautiful and evocative. However, I noticed a couple of discrepancies: for example, when Levi Parsons lends a CD to Winston. I personally think that it is highly unlikely that a teenager would be carrying a CD with him. He would listen to music on his phone. In addition, Charlene Parsons’ sister has the same last name, even though Parsons is the name of Charlene’s husband. On the whole though, I really enjoyed Darkest Before the Dawn, the 7th book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series.
