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…

I've been eager to read something from Katee Robert for a while now and The Devil's Daughter was definitely the right choice! Mystery and romantic suspense blends into a read that will keep readers up all night. The first novel in the Hidden Sins series is a showstopper.
Eden Collins returns home to help, unofficially, in a case that is sure to lead back to her mother's cult. As an FBI agent she's willing to put her experience and skills to use. Sheriff Zach Owens is at first suspicious of Eden, thinking maybe coming back to Clear Springs, Colorado is part of an elaborate ruse to deflect his attention away from Elysia. Eden escaped the cult as soon as she turned 18 and is less than enthusiastic to relive the horrors of her childhood. But, young girls are showing up dead and it may be the killer's way of drawing Eden back to Elysia.
The Devil's Daughter is one thriller that you do not want to miss. Between Zach and Eden I don't know who made the story the most appealing. They both had dominant personalities that made the other think differently and both had pasts that forged the strength readers will see. Not only is the mystery complicated enough to keep you guessing, but the depth of darkness will drag chills down your spine. Just when I thought I knew who the killer was, the story takes me by surprise. That's always a plus in any book!
I'm so happy that this is only the beginning of a series. I can't imagine what comes next, but I look forward to reading more from Katee Robert!
