Review ~ Midnight Lies (Wildefire #2) by Ella Grace

The Wilde sisters of Midnight return in this thrilling novel of romantic suspense, perfect for fans of Maya Banks, Allison Brennan, and Lori Foster.

The winds of fate have blown cruelly on a family that once had it all: money, power, prestige. The lives of three beautiful daughters were forever changed when, on a sultry night in Midnight, Alabama, a murder-suicide shattered the Wilde family. The girls grew up to live separate lives but now have returned home, each to face a danger no one can see coming.

Former homecoming queen Samantha surprised everyone by going into law enforcement, but beneath her tough fa├žade lies a wary heart. The tragedy that struck her family is an ever-present reminder that nothing is ever as it seems. When the man she loves, Quinn Braddock, a doctor and Iraq war veteran, is accused of murder, Samantha assumes the worst. Brokenhearted, her confidence shattered, she returns to Midnight. Though exonerated, Quinn still feels the sting of Samantha’s doubt, but he can’t forget his feelings for her and follows her. Soon after his arrival, a shocking murder terrifies the town, and once again, Quinn is under suspicion. This time, Samantha will not turn her back on the man she loves—even if it means walking into a killer’s trap.
Since reading Midnight Secrets I discovered that this series was written by one of my favorite suspense authors, Christy Reece – no wonder I felt right at home in Midnight.

The author did an incredible job of making both Samantha and Quinn multidimensional characters. My initial reservations that Samantha was going to be ANOTHER wimpy heroine were immediately quashed. She is a powerful character; even in her weakest moments. Her dialogue was emotionally draining; in the best way. Quinn, the bastard, was so hard-headed (yet charming) that I wanted Sam to either shoot him or well…you know – that other thing (lol).

Prefect blend of romance and suspense. Looking forward to reading Sabrina’s story.
