    Jennifer Jacquet: IMG Is Shame Necessary?

For fans of Maya Banks, Allison Brennan, and Lori Foster, a thrilling new romantic suspense novel from Ella Grace

 

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.

Midnight, Alabama


Savannah Wilde is one of three sisters that have had to live with the murder-suicide of their parents. Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina were completely changed the night they lost their parents and have moved on with their lives. They have stayed away from their home town of Midnight until they need to go back and the first one back is Savannah. As a prosecutor in Nashville after her last case which was grueling she decides to take some time and head home to Midnight for some peace and quiet. What she never expects is to find some letters that make her question all she has known about her family’s dark and shameful past. They make her realize that the town she has always thought she has known is not what is real and that there are some very dangerous secrets in the town of Midnight.

Zach Tanner was the town’s bad boy until he went off and joined the military. Now he is back in Midnight as the new police chief. Zach also feels that now he can show Savannah that the boy she used to love and the one that hurt is not the same as the man he is today. Zach can sense the secrets of the town too. Zach knows part of his job is to keep the town and Savannah safe but that might be easier said than done. There is a lot more going on in Midnight than what is on the surface. If he wants to keep the woman he never stopped loving safe he is going to need to figure out who are Savannah’s enemies and which ones are his.


This one is a great thriller that will keep the reader on the very edge of their seats guessing just what will happen next. It has some great twists and turns that will have to reader trying to figure out which was is up. It will also have readers never looking at small towns the same again and they will always be wondering just what is under the surface of any town. The characters are very well written and readers will be able to completely relate to them. This story will draw the reader in so completely that they will be rushing to finish it just to see what will happen next only to mourn when they reach the end of it. It will also have them eagerly and impatiently waiting for the next book in the series. This is one romantic suspense that romance readers should not miss.

Marijane Diodati, April 25, 2013 (view all comments by Marijane Diodati)
Midnight Secrets is the first book in the Wildefire series by Ella Grace (aka Christy Reece.) Unlike her renowned Last Chance Rescue series, in which the books are driven by action-packed plots, Midnight Secrets is a character driven book with the emphasis more on romance and relationships with elements of mystery and suspense.

Midnight Secrets is an excellent book due to the proficient writing of Ella Grace.

Everyone in the small southern town of Midnight, Alabama knows that Beckett Wilde killed his wife, Maggie and then hanged himself. Following the scandalous deaths of their parents, ten year old triplets, Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina, are raised by their protective grandfather, Daniel Wilde. Each girl deals with the trauma in her own way but the support each has for her sisters never waivers.

Midnight Secrets is Savannah Wilde's story. When she is 18, a shy, innocent college bound Savannah meets her crush, 20 year old Zach Tanner, when he saves her from a dangerous encounter. Savannah and her wealthy family treat Zach, the town's bad boy, as a hero for reasons he cannot fathom. Savannah and Zach fall in love. Zach promises that although they will be separated with her in college and him in the Army, he always will return to her.

Ten years later Savannah is a confident and successful prosecutor in Nashville who is threatened by a convicted killer. Her boss orders her to take two months off. Since their grandfather's death two years earlier, none of the sisters have been back to the family mansion in Midnight. Deciding that this is the opportunity to pack up the house for sale, Savannah returns to Midnight, despite knowing that the Chief of Police is Zach Tanner, the man who broke his promise to her.

Both of them have matured based upon their experiences over the last ten years. Ms. Grace gives them time to discover who they are as adults. An indulgence rarely given to the reader. Savannah and Zach still are attracted to each other and begin a hot physical relationship. Savannah has trust issues with Zach. He never explained the reason that he vanished from her life. But, Savannah has a secret of her own that she never shared with Zach. Although he does not tell her, he knows that he always has loved her and is determined that they will spend their lives together.

When Savannah discovers that her grandfather never believed that her parents' deaths were a murder/suicide, she investigates with Zach. When Savannah is injured in an attempt on her life, Savannah realizes that she is in love with Zach and finally trusts him. The question they face is who Savannah has known her entire life is a murderer and why?

In uncovering who committed the crime of killing her parents, Savannah and Zach realize that Midnight is not as it seems and some of its inhabitants are not either. Ms. Grace manages to make a small southern town of about 1400 people one of the characters of the book, not an easy feat. The town and its inhabitants have good points but also flaws, secrets, gossips, adulterers and killers. There is sufficient deceit, betrayal, unknown killers and sufficient twists to keep the reader captivated.

The characters of Savannah and Zach are very likable, and you find yourself hoping that they have a second chance at love. All the while knowing that they will spend the rest of their lives together.

I highly recommend Midnight Secrets to any reader who genuinely enjoys Romantic Suspense, that is, a balance between the two genres.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
