My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sometimes, after reading several ho-hum books in a row, I get a little frustrated and start to forget the excitement that a book can hold. So I get surprised when a book keeps me up all night reading and evokes physical responses of tension, anxiety, frustration, excitement, grief, happiness, elation, and relief. I’m thankful That Night could remind me why I love to read.
I’ve never read Chevy Stevens before, but this story of a couple wrongly convicted of murdering the girl’s sister will cause me to take a look at the rest of her work.
The story begins a bit slowly, with lots of setup and exposition. At times I even wondered why the author would go to such great lengths with so many details, many of which seemed tiny and insignificant. But as the story evolves and especially as it comes to a close, it becomes clear that the details were, indeed, significant.
I honestly couldn’t predict how the story would end. I had my suspicions, but the details and reasons were unclear. And as the tension built things about the past and the future were extremely uncertain.
I’m writing this review at 3:30 am because I just finished the book and have to share my thoughts RIGHT NOW. That’s how much I liked this book. I highly recommend it.
