For fans of Maya Banks, Allison Brennan, and Lori Foster, a thrilling new romantic suspense novel from Ella Grace

AT THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT, THE HEAT BEGINS

On a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years, they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them home.

Savannah is the first one back, when a grueling case in Nashville leads the young prosecutor to seek shelter in the quiet of the once grand Wilde mansion. But when she finds letters casting doubt on her family’s dark, shameful past, she realizes that peace in Midnight is a shallow façade and sinister secrets lurk beneath the surface. Zach Tanner, once the town’s bad boy, is now the new police chief and still has a wild hold over her. Zach can feel it, too, but he hurt Savannah once. As teenagers, they broke every rule together. Now it’s his job to keep her safe, even though he isn’t sure who her enemies are—or which ones might be his own.

My Thoughts

 

Won from Library Thing
Overall Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: 3.50
Character Rating: 4.50

First Thought: Midnight Secrets did a great job of drawing me into this world and making me want to revisit the people in it soon!

Story Thoughts: I am going to admit up front that I am a fan of the way Christy Reece aka Ella Grace writes a story. This one started out a little slow in the beginning but once it hit stride–I was IN! This story had a nice edge of suspense with a pretty balanced romance. I was a little more sold on the romance than the suspense but in the end it all came together nicely.

Character Thoughts: Here is where I think Midnight Secrets shines! I really liked both Savannah and Zach. They both had some interesting characteristics that made me just feel attached to them. However, I am REALLY looking forward to the sister’s books. I think they will be interesting and engaging. I love their bond and love for each other.

Final Thoughts: I thought this was a solid beginning to a new series and can’t wait for the next ones to come out!
