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

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

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.

Sweet, sexy, suspenseful second chance romance. 17 and 20 was so young but the love Zach and Savannah felt was by far on a very mature level. Then horrible events rip Zach away and one thing after another keep these two apart for over a decade. I loved that even though there was anger and pain thus didn't stop Zach from wanting to make things right. He realized his feelings had never gone away. I loved Zach so much. The suspense took a very big part in this story which did get a little slow at t ...more
19/7 - I had the murder/s picked from the moment we met him/her/them. Way too easy! Full review later.

30/7 - Finally mustered the motivation to write this fully. The romance side of the story was quite good, above average; the suspense side was too easy to work out. The two big reveals -Savannah's (view spoiler) and the identity of her parents' killer were a bit anti-climatic. I had already pegged (view spoiler)

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.

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.

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 e
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

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.

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

If you are a fan of the Last Chance Rescue series by Christy Reece, you will love her new Wildfire series writing as Ella Grace. Ms. Grace has such a unique and engaging writing style I will follow her around just like a puppy dog no matter which name she writes under. I am totally hooked.

Intriguing mystery, small town cover ups, murder plots, surprise endings, and absolute true ~ melt your heart and curl your toes ~ love is what you
A little too slow in pacing for me as a romantic suspense hence the 3 stars. I see this one more of a CR with a bit of suspense thrown in.

For triplets, Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina, their world came toppling down on the night that their parents were killed in a murder-suicide. Believing that their father killed their mother then took his own life, they lived not knowing the truth.

This story spans the teenage years focusing on Savannah before she went off to become a prosecutor, how she met Za

Midnight Secrets is the first book in the Wildefire series by Ella Grace (aka Christy Reece.) Unlike her renowned Last Chance Rescue series, in which the books are driven by action-packed plots, Midnight Secrets is a character driven book with the emphasis more on romance and relationships with elements of mystery and suspense.

Midnight Secrets is an excellent book due to the proficient writing of Ella Grace.

Everyone in the small southern town of Midnight, Alabama knows that Beckett Wilde killed

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
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

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
