...And Night Falls

One of the best things about getting immersed in a story is, well, getting immersed in a story. The weekend I read Tommie Lyn’s new book, the weather here was sunny and maybe 70 degrees. Mid-way through my reading, however, my house felt like it was 99 with 100% humidity, the result of a Gulf Coast hurricane knocking out the electricity. (Seattle isn't usually affected by Florida storms, but...) I wanted to close the book and dig out my emergency supplies, but couldn't tear myself away from the story.

…And Night Falls is a story of secrets and murder, set in the Florida panhandle in late summer. If you’re susceptible to the thrill of suspense, don’t read this when you’re all alone. The characters have depth, the plot has twists, and a cross-country hide-and-seek game will raise your heart rate.

It amazes me that Tommie Lyn has been writing seriously for less than four years. This novel is well constructed in every way, and she’s just warming up! Look for more armrest-gripping books from her soon, but be careful. She’s got a gift for suspense!

…And Night Falls is but one piece of Tommie Lyn's fine work. For a link to purchase the book and to read her other material, click here. Don't say I didn't warn you.

A great book from a great writer. I enjoyed every page. The hardest part was turning the last page.

Katharine said...

Actually... I think the best part is knowing the author and knowing she's got more material in the works!

SkeeterFranklin said...

More material! Yay, Tommie! Keep it coming.
