Savannah Wilde was always the quiet, shy triplet. With the deaths (murder-suicide) of their parents eighteen years ago, a grisly defining moment in their young lives, each of the sisters has stayed away from their hometown of Midnight, Alabama. But with the family home to be packed up, and Savannah forced to take time off from her career as a prosecuting attorney, she heads back to Midnight.

Before she left, Savannah's heart was broken by Zach Tanner, her teenage love. Now the police chi...more

Christy Reece won adoration and praise with her Last Chance Rescue series and now, writing as Ella Grace, she lures and captures readers with the debut of her new “Wildefire” romantic suspense series, focusing on triplets, Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde. While the LCR series is more plot-driven with action-packed darker storylines, readers will find the Wildefire series is more character-driven, emphasizing the relationships and romance with a blend of mystery an...more

Zach Tanner
Midnight Secrets is the first book in Ella Grace’s Wildefire series, and opens with a tragic scene that absolutely broke my heart. Right from the start I was completely invested in the Wilde family, and desperate to know the truth of what happened that horrible night.
From the Cover:

At the stroke of midnight, the heat begins...

♡Karlyn P♡
A lite romance suspense with many good pages of sexy fun moments, but sadly with a predictable and over-the-top ending.

I didn't love it, didn't hate it.

Zach and Savannah were first loves, broken apart when Zach left for the military. Ten years later, both of them find themselves back in the small town of Midnight, and with a lot of hurt feelings to overcome. There are also a few mysteries a foot, including the possible murders of Savannah's parents 20 years ago.

The romance between Zach and Sav...more

I was a huge fan of Christy Reece’s Last Chance series, so when I saw that she had plans on releasing a new Romantic Suspense series under the pen name of Ella Grace, I’ll admit to doing a little happy dance.
The woman can write the hell out of Romantic Suspense.

Midnight Secrets starts off with the mysterious murder of Maggie and Beckett Wilde that is assumed a murder suicide, leaving their triplet daughters to pick up the pieces of what once was a happy family.

The first half of the...more

"You were my first love, my only love, and you'll be my last. Till the end of time, I'll be yours forever."

Ella Grace has my attention, lol. This book was really, really good and I can't wait for the next in the series. I had got this book a month, maybe 2, as an arc. I'm really bad about letting myself get distracted with other books, It doesn't really matter, sometimes sparkly, shiny popular releases everyone else is reading and loving, sometimes books I've been waiting on forever, I can't ev...more

A new series from Christy Reece writing as Ella Grace! Tone down the creepy elements, add in a small town feel with interesting characters that have their own secrets and you've got Midnight, Alabama.

Savannah, one of three sisters, comes home on leave to take care of family business and runs into her old flame Zach. You know 'Zach' the boy from the wrong side of the tracks and the town's favorite "Juvenile Delinquent". Together they find love and there is a mystery to be solved.

What I Loved:

Rating 3.5 stars

I've always enjoyed Christy Reece's writing, so when I heard she was launching a new series under a different name, I was excited and my excitement proved right. Midnight Secrets is a solid start to what I predict will be a great series.

The book begins with a murder and then jumps ten years forward to when the three triplets who were left orphaned by their parents apparent murder-suicide, going to their high school prom. The heroine of this book is Savannah, the shy, bookish sist...more

Another new series from Reece as Ella Grace!!!!


Hyperventilating kicking in right now!


I loved Reece with her Last Chance Rescue series and was absolutely devostational when it ended.

The only issue is I have to effin wait 7 months for the book!

I am so thankful that I won an early copy of this book from Goodreads. Wow!!! Talk about a steamy hot romance with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Ella Grace hits it out of the ball park!! Zach and Savannah are two incredible characters that come so alive that even after you read the last page they stay with you for days. It was a nail biting suspenseful story that had me in tears one minute and shouting for joy the next. Ella Grace could not have done a better job. I'd giv...more
I knew I wanted to read this book as soon as the series was announced. My only concern was whether it would meet my expectations or was my excitement going to build them up too high. It was needless worry.

The Set Up
Triplet sisters Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina Wilde lost their parents in a brutal "murder-suicide" in Midnight, Alabama when they were 10 years old. It was blamed on their father but we know that's not so from the prologue. Their paternal grandfather is left to raise them and when...more

Savannah finds herself back in her hometown of Midnight, Alabama, ten years after she left to go to college. She’s on leave from her position as a prosecutor after receiving threats related to her current case, so she decides to come back to Midnight and pack up their family home. The home has sat empty since their Grandfather, the man who raised the triplets Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina after their parents were killed in a murder-suicide...more

Overall I LOVED this story and am happy I was able to add another series to my list. Zach and Savannah are the perfectly quintessential childhood sweethearts, forced apart due to their own naiveté and bad choices, but thankfully they are able to come together again as adults to form the lasting bonds they always desired. The connection between the triplets was fun to read as well and I am seriously looking forward to reading their stories. The mystery surrounding the death of their parents, one...more

Midnight Secrets is the first book in Ella Grace’s new Wildefire Series. This debut novel is well-developed, combining mystery, suspense, and romance that covers a time span of eighteen years. Through flashbacks and ample exposition, the author immerses readers into the fictitious lives of the prominent Wilde family and prepares them for the rest of the series.

The setting for this series is Midnight, Alabama, a small, overall, peaceful southern town, until Beckett Wilde apparently kills his wif...more
The first book in Ella Grace's (aka Christy Reese) Wildefire series. The books feature triplet sisters who are wealthy and lost their parents when they were children. They were raised by their grandfather and went their own way after high school. First up is Savannah, who is a prosecutor in Nashville and is forced to take a 2 month break. She takes this time to return to Midnight, Alabama, to get their mansion ready to sell. There she is reunited with Zach Tanner, her ex-boyfriend. Zach left for...more

4.5 for a strong new series debut! this is probably my fave genre so I don't have too much negativity to add! Savanna Wilde is one of the uppercrust Wilde triplets being raised in their affluent home by their grandfather after their mother was murdered by their father who then hung himself...or did he? Savanna falls for local nobody Zach Tanner who breaks her heart at the age of 18 when he leaves town and never looks back. 10 yrs later Savannah is back in town to take care if family business and...more
Finally! Our long awaited trip to Midnight can begin!
Savannah and Zach's story crosses many years and lots of heartache before we reach the present day issues they encounter. What a ride!
The writing in MS is certainly as strong as Ella's counterpart, Christy Reece. The characters, like in a Reece book, are intriguing. But, unlike Christy, Ella's books are set in the small-town South, and I love the atmosphere there. Not to mention Faye's Diner. To anyone who hasn't gotten their own copy of Midn...more
Meh. That's the best way to describe this romantic suspense/ small town book. I didn't dislike or love the book. It was just MEH.
This is the first in a trilogy about the Wilde triplet sisters. They were raised by their paternal grandfather after the murder/ suicide of their parents.
Circumstances lead Savannah, a prosecutor in Nashville, back to Midnight, Alabama. She runs into a former love, a bad boy from high school, Zach Tanner. Of course, sparks re-ignite when she offers to help him investi...more

A five star review for "Midnight Secrets" by Ella Grace {Love the name!}


On a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years, they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them home.

My Review:
The book begins 18 years into the past with the horrific murders of the triplets parents. Then it jumps 10 years into the past to show the beautiful beginnings of Savannah and Zach's relationship. When the book jumped to present day, I was heartbroken because I was already so enmeshed and emotionally involved with Zach and Savannah's romance. To know that it fell apart for some reason was heartbreaking. But....that what makes a good book... that angst.

What makes these two characters so...more
Midnight Secrets is the debut book by author Ella Grace aka Christy Reece. If you're a fan of Christy, I highly suggest reading Midnight Secrets. This is going to be a fantastic series.

I loved both Zach and Savannah from the very beginning. Both from the same town, Midnight, Alabama, their backgrounds are completely different. While Savannah and her sisters Sabrina and Samantha are from a highly regarded family in Midnight, Zach is from a family that's frowned upon. His mother is the town whore...more
This is a new author for me. I am a creature of habit and typically stick to authors that I am familiar with but in the past month I have discovered a couple of really good authors that I have never read before. Ella Grace is one of them.

This book, “Midnight Secrets” is a story about two adorable characters, Zach and Savannah in a town called Midnight, Alabama. Their love begins during a heroic event at Savannah’s prom, then a long dry spell in the middle then more heroics in the end. The author...more
