Night's Landing was a quick read for all the right reasons: engrossing, exciting, and mysterious, which were all sustained from start to finish. A romantic suspense that is driven by appealing characters who are integral to the story. There are no bystanders or "wasted" moments; every event counts and is relevant to the plot.

The trigger moment occurs at the beginning with a sniper's bullet that targets two U.S. marshals. One of which happens to be a friend of the President. Is it a random act o
Not one of Neggers's best efforts: the plot's a hot mess, with so many subplots that the central characters and their romance don't shine.

Sarah was home and she got a very shocking call from her brother that he was shot. Her brother was an FBI Agent and his partner was Nate. She rushed to the hospital and found out that her brother was in surgery and that his partner was shot too, but it wasn't that bad. Later on Sarah and Nate have to figure out who the shooter was before he tries to kill her.

Carla Neggers is good at painting the scenery in her books. I enjoyed this novel, but wish she had given us the recipes for her tea and apple crisps.
Night’s Landing by Carla Neggers is the second book in her U.S. Marshal series. In the opening scene, US Marshals Nate Winter and Rob Dunnemore are shot in Central Park. Nate’s wound is slight, but Rob’s is critical, so his twin sister rushes to his bedside. Rob, afraid that his sister is a target, sends her home. When she receives a threatening letter, Nate comes to her aid in Tennessee. Odd things begin to happen involving her gardener, a reporter, snakes, and the President who was raised on a ...more

Enjoyed the read. Great plot and fast moving action. Well thought out characters and good use of locale.
I read this back in the Winter of 2004-2005. I remember liking the book.
Linda Ng
This was an excellent Romantic Suspense novel. It was so interesting that I quickly picked up and read "The Rapids", "Cold Ridge" and "Dark Sky" by Carla Neggers. All four books involved related characters and so they kept me entertained. They also take you to adventerous places of interest such as the Neatherlands, Tennessee, New York, Hudson River Valley, New Hampshire and Vermont. I recommend this author to anyone who loves to read adventurous, suspense novels with a touch of romance. I reall ...more

Quick suspense, fun plot lines and intriguing bad guys. Easy to read and enjoyable.

Always a good read.
Amy White
I really like the U.S. Marshall's series and its characters! This book is more of her best suspense with characters you can really sink your teeth into.
Sarah Webber
I liked it but the plot was awfully complicated.
I haven't read the others in this series but this was fine as a stand alone, well actually it made me want to read more about the other secondary characters. I guess this is a hallmark of Neggers books - a rich cast of characters. I also liked that this one really started out with a lot of excitement and also finished up with even more action. Sarah and Nate made a good couple, I really couples who work side by side instead of some kind of power struggle.
'Nights Landing' is simply one of the best Carla Neggers books ever published. It is long on everything a romantic suspense novel should be. There is non stop suspense, sex, intriguing mystery and an action packed ending. Nate and Sarah come together under crazy circumstances. Nate is her wounded brothers partner and becomes her protector. When they flee the city for Sarah's remote childhood home sparks fly.
Leigh Ann Hunker
I liked the strong female centric character. A who dunnit with a bit of romance thrown in. The story is centered in Tennessee. Entertaining, easy read. Would be a good "vacation" book.
Mary Beth
Good story, likable characters, but I couldn't deal with all of the snakes. I hate snakes and I was completely grossed out by all of the mentions of them.
I'm not sure why I finished this story. There were elements of the story line that I liked, but the characters just weren't that interesting or believable.

The book was poorly written and difficult to follow. The plot could be an easy reader and enjoyable, if you can get past the bad writing.
I liked most of her books. I have read alot of them and there are the same characters throughout. I like that.
Enjoyed this book.A romantic/thriller with a good split that it doesn't become over to mushy.
Good Characters but ending drug on forever. I think they are setting it up for the next book.
Beverly Laude
It was probably just me, but about halfway through the book, I just didn't care what happened!
First one of her books I've read. It was a good light summer read, although very predictable.
This the second book in series, the story moves quickly and has several "suprises".
Not one of the best books in the series...characters in chapters hard to follow.
Fast read although I didn't care for the unbelievable characters and story.
I am thinking that this book was my favorite of her books I have read.
good book. read it on a plane to and/or from hawaii.
