I just love reading this book or should I say listen :) (Audiobook). Could not put it down it had a little of everything..that at times it brought tears to my eye. This is a must read.
Give me a Strong Female Lead, Romance, Murder and Mayhem. Then sit back and enjoy finding the Why,the How and the Solution.
I never saw it coming...I never saw the solution to the conflict between the characters...Didn't not expect the passion to rise to such a pitch.
Good job with the male characters...
Can passion overcome your perception of your childhood history and leave you in a better place? I guess anything is possible and that makes me not only hopeful but happy.
Good story line.
How strong and determine Faith is. She determined to make it and would to not allow the judgement of others deter her.
Natalie is an awesome narrator.
I thought the ending was shocking.
Another great story by Linda Howard. Well worth the read. So many elements...mystery, sex, betrayal, love. All put together into another great novel.
Easy Breezy! Not like whimsical or fun but more easy and carefree. I was smack dap in middle of listening to Middlesex which is fine literary craftsmenship, and in no way is this that. But Middlesex is sort of ..... lets say...heavy. It requires absolute engagement and after 3 weeks of intense listening I needed a breather. A quickie. A sprint not a journey. After the Night provided just that. It had all the makings for a good "quickie"....rounded characters, sufficent background info, romance, mystery and climax. It's pretty pridictable, but aren't most quickies? It's the ride to the end that makes it fun. This is only my second listen by Linda Howard, and she's a keeper when my only requirement is to be entertained.
Compelling story line
Faith was my favorite because she was so strong in spite of her background and in spite of having this feeling of having the whole town against her. There were moments where I was thinking, "why do you even care about these people? why would you want to live there anyway?" but overall I was convinced of the reasonableness of her motivations and impressed with her character and strength.
This book is at the top of my favorites! I will listen to it again!
It was a very intense romance with no dull moments to bore you!
No I haven't but truly enjoyed this one!
Yes, it was so hard to pause it.
I truly enjoyed this book so much that I am afraid that others just won't be able to top this one! I cannot wait to listen to more from Linda Howard!
This book was quite a thrilling mystery and also a strong romance. I liked the way it developed, though I have to admit that I wondered why the main (male) lead hadn't figured out the problem a long time before. Other than that it was well done; well written, great descriptions. Nice confrontation with the problems of poverty & hierarchy in the South.
