Don't read this one after dark...there's a creepy stalker on the loose! The story is very suspenseful and hard to lay aside as Melissa continues to find things out of place after fleeing a stalker in another town. She wants to believe it's someone else, but what's the likelihood of one woman getting two different stalkers in the same year in two different places? Chris, her former fiancé, is with the Memphis PD and is in town to finish out his late father's affairs. He listens when the

I really enjoyed this book and it is hard to believe this is the author's first published book! The atmosphere and plotting was creepy and well done! The only minor complaint I have (I almost deducted a star for it, but the book overall was so enjoyable, I just couldn't) the main characters were SO distrustful of each other!! Even after the initial misunderstanding was cleared up, the heroine was still too quick to jump to the worst conclusions about the love interest. It left me feeling like th ...more

Melissa (Missy) Langston flees her Atlanta home for a small Florida town to escape a relentless stalker. She covers her trail well, even changing her name, but soon notes and flowers begin to appear on her doorstep. She sees what she thinks is a person standing the shadows around her rented home. The police think she’s overreacting and don’t do much to help, mostly because of her past (her promiscuous mother turned down the sheriff’s advances). Her former boyfriend, Chris Jamison, has also retur ...more

“I’m watching you.”

With a stalker who keeps flouting the restriction order, Melissa Langston decides to flee Atlanta & return to her small hometown in Florida. She was careful in her flight, being careful not to leave a trail, & changes her name to Melissa Morris. Of course, she had left Harmony Grove with a broken heart & vowed not to come back, but Chris had left also so at least she wouldn’t have to see him again, and here she would be safe.

Four months later, she starts receiving

I won this book from a GoodReads Giveaway contest. I really enjoyed this book. Halfway through it I thought I knew who it was then 3/4 of the way I changed my choice and then the ending was a surprise! I also liked how at the end of the book there were like discussion questions to make you think more about the book and about yourself. I would for sure recommend this book to other readers.

Melissa has to get away from her abusive, psycho boyfriend in Georgia. So she flees back home to Florida. Coincidentally, her former fiance, Chris, has also come home to settle his deceased father's affairs and sell his business. Melissa's best friend tries to get her and Chris back together. She figures it must be God's plan that they should be together. Why else would they both be back at the same time? Melissa is now receiving anonymous notes and is being stalked. The local police chief think ...more

The romance in Midnights Shadows is very well done, but the suspense was slow to start. There were some unanswered questions, which always bothers me. Still, the romance is good. Very sweet and believable.

I enjoyed the story and the pace of the story. Of course, I enjoyed that Melissa and Chris were able to reconnect. My favorite was the sweetness of Smudge. I would love to read more about the Harmony Grove residents. Including sweet Smudge. :)

Exciting, creepy stalker story. But I loved more, the history between the characters and the betrayal that shaped the past of their relationship.

Great read.

Great story, with a realist small town setting. Conflict-driven story that leaves you hoping the hero & heroine can overcome all the odds against them.
