One by one, people are mysteriously disappearing from a small Maine town.
Four months ago, a ruthless murderer killed two people and kidnapped three more, including Danny Sullivan’s sister, who barely escaped. Unfortunately so did the killer, vanishing without a trace into the vast wilderness. When the police fail to find his sister’s captor, Danny returns to Maine to hunt him down. He begins his search with another survivor, bed-and-breakfast owner Mandy Brown, but her refusal to cooperate raises Danny’s suspicions. What is the beautiful innkeeper hiding?
Mandy Brown has a secret. But sexy Danny Sullivan, his relentless questions, and the desire that simmers between them threaten to expose the truth - a revelation that puts her family in danger. As more people disappear, it becomes clear the killer is planning another ritual…and that he’s circling in on Mandy.

I only post written info if the story or narrator "moves' me enough to do so. I think I'd listen to anything this guy narrates. He was perfect. Every character, male or female, was just right. He didn't try to be feminine and mess it up. He just made slight adjustments to tone.
This book was enjoyable as a listen (not just a read) because it it so well done.
Off to seek more by this narrator....
297 good reviews compared to 24 bad reviews on Amazon. Go figure!!
I happened to have loved all three of these books. I really liked Danny and Mandy and I thought Bill was written very well. I was sorry about Jed. But I was glad for Ken and Hunter and the others. Nathan was just as sick as his uncle Aaron. I wasn't surprised about who his assisstant was. It's a good series..
As to the narrator: I definately had to skip over the love scenes since Mandy sounded so much like a man. And the narrator had no emotion in his voice at all. I couldn't possibly listen to him again. Sorry..
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
It wasn’t until I started listening to Midnight Sacrifice that I realised it was part of a series and it wasn’t book one. Even though I am typically very picky about listening to all books in order and there were some references to book one, I did not feel lost in any way nor did I feel like I was missing key information so I would say this can definitely be listened too as a standalone book. There were enough teasers scattered throughout however that I am certainly going to be getting my hands on book one.
I loved this book, it had a little of everything, love, sex, suspense and I was kept guessing until almost the end. Melinda paints a vivid picture with her writing and you can easily identify with the characters and see yourself living among them. I planned to listen to just a few chapters before bed but - I just couldn't put it down, so much happens in this book emotionally I was a mess! there are more Sullivan's I wouldn't mind getting to know better.?
Ms. Leigh did a tremendous job of bringing the story to life. Her style of writing so was genuine and full of life that I felt like I had front row seats to the story playing out in front of me. All in all this was a fabulous story that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys a bit of mystery with their romance.
Christopher Lane did a great job with the delivery of the story.
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
Midnight Sacrifice carries on from Midnight Exposure and follows Danny Sullivan (brother to the main character in the first book) and his endeavours to bring closure for his sister who is still traumatised by her kidnapping. His love interest is Mandy Brown, a woman who has secrets that she needs to keep in order to protect her family. While enjoyable, the story was very predictable and I was able to guess the 'secret' baddie very early on. It also seems that there will be a third book in this series, as another Sullivan brother is introduced during this, together with his likely love interest. Worth a credit? No. It was, however, worth the reduced price I got it for when purchased together with the Kindle edition.
