That NightCover

Brief Summary:

 

They said she was a murderer.

 

They said she killed her sister.

 

But they lied.

 

As a teenager, Toni Murphy had a life full of typical adolescent complications: a boyfriend she adored, a younger sister she couldn’t relate to, a strained relationship with her parents, and classmates who seemed hell-bent on making her life miserable. Things weren’t easy, but Toni could never have predicted how horrific they would become until her younger sister was brutally murdered one summer night.

 

Toni and her boyfriend, Ryan, were convicted of the murder and sent to prison.

 

Now thirty-four, Toni is out on parole and back in her hometown, struggling to adjust to a new life on the outside. Prison changed her, hardened her, and she’s doing everything in her power to avoid violating her parole and going back. This means having absolutely no contact with Ryan, avoiding fellow parolees looking to pick fights, and steering clear of trouble in all its forms. But nothing is making that easy—not Ryan, who is convinced he can figure out the truth; not her mother, who doubts Toni’s innocence; and certainly not the group of women who made Toni’s life hell in high school and may have darker secrets than anyone realizes. No matter how hard she tries, ignoring her old life to start a new one is impossible. Before Toni can truly move on, she must risk everything to find out what really happened that night.

 

But the truth might be the most terrifying thing of all.

 

Review:

I loveeeeee Chevy Stevens’ novels. When I saw she had a new one out, ‘That Night’, I knew it would be the next book I would read on vacation. I was HOOKED for the first page.  Sheesh, Chevy’s style of written is captivating. I could not put this book down. I was reading it in between hands when we were playing cards, it’s that good. It’s dark, mysterious, sad, and riveting. The story plays out as a movie in your mind, the way Chevy writes you can picture every last detail. I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who loves a psychological thriller. And if you love this genre, check out ‘Still Missing’ &  ‘Never Knowing’, I just bought ‘Always Watching’ so be on the lookout for that review soon, xo!
