Right OMG!!! this book I really can not say enough good things about it.
So my expectations were not very high when I started this, first I don't read much romantic suspense and second, this author is an unknown for me.
Well, let me tell you Carey Decevito has blown me away with "Night Shift" I couldn't put this down, Simply stunning.
So on to my review, So this was my first book by the talented Carey Decevito and I would classify Night Shift as belonging to the romantic suspense g

This was a contemporary romantic suspense. Great read. Great cover.

Shane Peters is a detective chasing a serial killer that seems to have it out for him. It all started with his wife, which left his life a living hell, and leaving him to raise his newborn daughter on his own. Now 8 years later, the death toll is up to 18, and he's no closer to solving the case. Emberlyn Roth has had to start all over again, and it hasn't been easy, but she's managed by the skin of her teeth. One of the bright spots has been her neighbors' daughter, who comes over to visit.

Firstly, I’ll mention that I note other reviewers seem to have enjoyed this book more than I did, so my “it’s ok” rating perhaps speaks more of taste than quality.

Decevito has an idiosyncratic writing style, or rather, two such styles; one for suspense and the other for romance. I personally didn’t enjoy either of them very much; you, like other reviewers, might.

The “suspense” writing style relies heavily on a few things.

Short lines, indicating urgency.
Pauses. Shıt. More pauses.
Palpable tension

admit it. I am a cover junkie and this one 'got me'. I was expecting sizzle and that's exactly what I got. Some sizzle and a sweet romance. Combined with a thriller that kept me turning the pages.

I can easily say that Night Shift is a 5+ star page turner.

The characters are charming and delightful, hot (Shane and his co-workers) and just a little bit stubborn and opionated.

Emberlyne has been through a rough time. She's a big girl and wants to stand on her own.

Even though this is book two in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.
In this story Shane is a police detective whose wife was murdered when his daughter was a baby. Her killer has been taunting him ever since. Murdering women who resemble his wife and leaving clues in the form of pieces of a picture.
Emberlyn is starting her life a new. Her ex husband went to jail for abuse and she has been moving and hiding since. For the past two years she has been living in her grandmother's house. Ri ...more

This is the second installment in the Nightshade Series, but can certainly be read as a standalone. Fans of the Night Break will catch a few glimpses of Devolin and Dalton, but the focus is most certainly on hot cop Shane.

Shane is a single Dad, having lost his wife eight years ago in a horrific murder. A murder that began a string of similar ones over the years, and provides him with the unwavering obsession to solve these crimes before more women’s lives are lost.

Because he spends so much time

Oh my word!!! I don’t know how to describe what I just read. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time wondering what taught the murderer would do next. Shane is a police detective that whose wife was murdered and he is left raising their little girl. Shane is being taunted, the killer is murdering women that look like Shane’s dead wife and leaving clues. Emberlyn just can’t catch a break.

This book is the second one in the Nightshade Series by Carey Decevito. It takes us on Shane Peters’ journey as he works to unmask the serial killer who killed his wife. As a detective on a local police force though, Peters needs to be careful that his personal search doesn’t interfere with his work.
The beginning lines of this book will instantly catch your attention and make you wonder what exactly is going on. Decevito’s suspenseful writing style will have you flipping through the pages quickl

I love this author, suspense romance is always a go to and Carey Decevito knows how to write it. Shane Peters is a detective on the hunt for a serial killer.

Night Shift is the second book in the Nightshade series. The story was intense, suspenseful, romantic, and the twists and turns kept me reading into the night. The characters were developed and likeable. Shane and Emberlyn had great chemistry. Lana Rose was so cute. Liked that past characters are in eachothers books.

I really enjoyed this romantic suspense novel. The characters, especially the female characters, are so strong and compatible with the strong male. Shane is a single dad trying to find the serial killer that killed his wife eight years before. Emberlyn is the new neighbor that has befriended Shane's 9-year old daughter. Both characters have their sad history and the chance to heal together. Even though it is a part of a series, it stands well alone. Overall this book has plenty of suspense, good ...more

The second installment of the Nightshade series proves as fast paced and sexy as book one. Shane is a single dad who thinks he works too much for the local police department and sucks as a father. Driven to solve the serial murders that began with his wife, and raise his daughter, Shane doesn't see the woman of his dreams across the street. That is until his daughter starts spending more time with the woman. While he is intrigued by Emberlyn, he doesn't know the secrets she hides from her past. ...more

I am always looking for new authors who write romantic suspense so when I saw Night Shift all over my feed a bit ago I went ahead and gave it a one-click. And am I glad I did because once I started reading, I could not put this down.

I really enjoyed that both the main characters had something going on. Something dangerous and sinister. I will say that I found the jump from virtual strangers to lovers in the short span that it happened seemed a bit out of character, at least for Emberlyn, it didn

Night Shift (Nightshade Book 2) written by Carey Decevito is a wonderfully written is a romance mystery/suspense novel. The author does a terrific job of making the characters believable and realistic. I found that although the story line was fairly predictable at times, it was entertaining and really well written.

I received this book from Voracious Readers for an honest review. This was a fun easy to read book. If it's your first foray into this genre it has enough suspense to keep you interested with no major plot twists. If you're a seasoned reader of this genre it's a super fun read with easily likeable characters. You care what happens to all of them even Grams. Could the characters have had more depth? Absoultely. But for what this is it is good. I did like the direction of the story and personally ...more

I have actually met Carey at a signing and she is a sweet, genuine person and that carries over into her characters. I loved the tension between Shane and Ember as their story played out. There were some times that I wished the flow was a little more fluid or that the characters choices made a little more sense... But all in all, this was a great book!

Born and raised in small town Northern Ontario, Canada, Carey Decevito has always had a penchant for reading and writing.

More than a decade later, with weeks of sleepless nights, where exhaustion settled into her everyday existence, she finally gave in and put pen to paper (more like fingers to keyboard!) She submitted to the dreams that plagued her. And the rest, as they say, is history!
