Description

The first suspenseful thriller in the Midnight series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

When two hikers disappear from their hometown in Maine, everyone blames the blinding storms. But the truth is far more sinister. Unaware of the danger, tabloid photographer Jayne Sullivan follows an anonymous tip to find the most reclusive sculptor in the art world. Instead, she finds mysterious handyman Reed Kimball-and a small town full of fatal secrets.

Five years ago, Reed buried his homicide detective career along with his wife. But when a hiker is found dead, the local police chief asks Reed for help. Why was a Celtic coin found under the body? And where is the second hiker? Desperate to avoid the media, Reed doesn't need a murder, a missing person, or a nosey photographer. Until Jayne is attacked, and he realizes that her courage is his undoing. Reed must risk everything to protect her and find a cunning killer.

  • (4/5)
    Well written and I even liked the ending.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed the story in this book. It is a bit far out. But I can handle that. Druid ritual sacrifice does not stretch me too far. If you can deal with that, I think you will like Jayne and Reed who are thrust together by danger and weather. I confess, I love a good snowbound story. Not really sure why. Both of the lead characters are damaged (of course) so distrust and fear of commitment are impediments to the relationship. But despite their personal issues, Jayne and Reed are both formidable fighters when they or their loved ones are threatened. I particularly like Jayne because, although she seems to have a "kick me" sign permanently attached to her, she is not a wimp or whiner. She takes control and saves herself. Go Jayne!

    This book was great on so many levels. It is filled with suspense and romance. The twists and turns of the story plot keep you on the edge of your seat, hungry to read more. While there is romance in the story, it is the subtle coming together of two broken souls who never thought they would need another person. Throughout the book you are given hints about who the psychopath may be, but even at the end, the complexity of the story keeps you guessing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and thrillers.

    The story was great but there was too much inner dialogue and repetitive inner dialogue from both the main characters. At times, their reactions and behavior seemed juvenile.
  • (5/5)
    Loved the characters and the plot. Was a quick read
  • (3/5)
    This was on a Best of Romantic Suspense list and while I would not agree it was still passable entertainment.

    I enjoyed that it was set in small town Maine, that the woman saved herself (twice), and the old world religious references.

    I really enjoyed this romantic suspense title. It had great pacing and was filled with suspense. The tension just kept ramping up and it kept me guessing until almost the very end. Jayne Sullivan travels to Huntsville, Maine, on the trail of recluse sculptor R. S. Morgan. She is working for a tabloid despite her moral reservations because she needs to make money to help her brother who was injured while serving in Iraq. Jayne is also the survivor of an attack by a man who attacked, raped and killed two other women. She ended up scarred and with her confidence battered but she is a survivor. She has learned to shoot a gun and do martial arts but she hasn't learned to trust her heart.Jayne didn't expect to meet Reed Kimball who is both sexy and reclusive. He has some major secrets. He has come to Maine to find a quiet life for himself and his seventeen-year-old son. His was a police detective in Georgia when his wife was murdered. He was briefly suspected of her death and became the focus of a media frenzy. He certainly doesn't trust the media now. He is completely determined to keep his second career as a sculptor hidden.While she is looking around the town and taking pictures, she accidentally shoots a picture that brings her to the attention of a local crazy who is planning a Druid ritual that involves human sacrifice. This crazy has already killed a young man who was hiking in the area. His body was found during a warm spell but there was so much damage that the police can't confirm murder. Jayne is kidnapped by this guy but manages to escape and stumble into the path of Reed who was out searching for her. Since they are in the midst of a blizzard, Reed takes her home where their attraction grows. The sexual tension is increasing but both characters' issues keep them apart.Jayne is determined to leave town to get back to the relative safety of her big city life and the care of her brothers. She is also afraid that her stalker might hurt Reed or his son. Reed doesn't want her to go but can't open up enough to ask her to stay. It takes gunfire to force them to acknowledge their attraction.This was a great story. As I was reading it, I was already planning which of my friends to pass this book along to. I know fans of romantic suspense will really enjoy this one.
