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 rating: 3 of 5 stars
The premise of this story is quite fascinating. The problem is, it seems to have too much filler. There's basically two stroies in one book, but not listed that way. You have Savannah and Zach who have loved each other for 10 years, reuniting, and falling back in love while trying to catch vandals in town. But then that's over, and they are working things out, and all of a sudden, you throw in a murder mystery of Savannah trying to figure out what happened to her parents. Was it really a murder/suicide or was it a double murder? The story doesn't flow together very well and I think it would have been better to cut out some of the unnecessary filler in the book. Shorten it up. Then about 70% into the book, it tells me the file is corrupted and to re-download it from Amazon. Which I did, and it still had issues. I think if a content editor went to work on this book, it would be much better. It's not horrible, it's steamy without being dirty, but definitely needs some cutting done to it.
