‘If you’re reading this, I’m dead.’
Rejected by her family and plagued by insomnia, Rose Shaw is on the brink . But one dark evening she collides with a man running through the streets, who quickly vanishes. The only sign he ever existed – a journal dropped at Rose’s feet.
She begins to obsessively dedicate her sleepless nights to discovering what happened to Finn Matthews, the mysterious author of the journal. Why was he convinced someone wanted to kill him? And why, in the midst of a string of murders, won’t the police investigate his disappearance?
Rose is determined to uncover the truth. But she has no idea what the truth will cost her…
‘What a heart-breaking, heart-stopping read! I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Night by Night is AMAZING!’ Lauren North, author of The Perfect Betrayal
When we meet Rose, I didn’t envy her one bit. An insomnia sufferer who is struggling to function. Her life seems to be on a downwards spiral with her husband and daughter hardly talking to her and she is literally just existing.
Well that all changes when she comes into possession of a journal. Like Rose, I was very intrigued when reading what was inside and Rose finds herself getting a purpose in life and making it her mission to solve the disappearance of a complete stranger to her.
I thoroughly enjoyed the direction that the author takes the reader in the story. Dealing with homophobia and bigots among other things. Sadly it is something that is very much about today and it actually made for some quite emotional reading in part. It also tackles dealing with grief and trying to mend bridges. There was so much that kept my attention and had me turning those pages, dying to know more.
Rose is an unreliable narrator, adding to the suspense and intrigue and I didn’t have a clue who to trust. The author totally had me hoodwinked and I was blinded by Rose’s opinions and thoughts and felt bad by the end for thinking bad of certain characters.
Night By Night is a truly gripping read. It is deliciously dark, taking unexpected turns that ensured I wasn’t putting my Kindle down anytime soon as I had to know the mystery surrounding Finn. For me it was a very refreshing story line, not having really read anything along the same lines. Another brilliant offering by the author that I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
