Night Kills Author:Charlotte Hughes Dear Readers: Although I've now spent several years writing humor, Night Kills, first released by Avon Books in 1998, is sure to send chills up your spine. It certainly gave me a bad case of the heebie-jeebies as I wrote the book in the loft of our house; my children thought it was great fun to slip into the room while I was deeply invo... more »lved in a particularly scary scene and tap me on the shoulder. When Lee Cates's sister is brutally murdered, all evidence points to the woman's adoptive son, a troubled seventeen-year-old. That is, until a handsome outsider, who'd spent that fatal night with the good-time girl, is arrested. Lee is determined to prove her nephew's innocence, even though she finds herself wildly attracted to the handsome suspect who seems bent on buying the town's loyalty. Rashly probing into the murder, the blindly loyal Lee learns that not everybody in small-town Comfrey, South Carolina, loved her fast-living sister. As Lee continues to probe she realizes -- maybe too late -- that her sister's secret may lead to her own death. So sit back and enjoy the spine-tingling story. I hope you'll write and let me know what you think. Charlotte Hughes« less
I don't read romances very often and this really isn't a 'romance', it a very well written short mystery. There are only two characters I liked and that was Jack and Holden, the rest are just irritating.
I thought I had the myster solved but 'not', you have to go until the very end(hope that doesn't spoil for you) but it is a very short quick read.
