I enjoyed the writing style of Night's suspense novel. Four women have gone missing and the build-up to what happened to them kept me turning the pages. I enjoyed the premise of a city girl moving to a small town & discovering that she likes the slower paced life only to discover that there's a lot going on there beneath the surface. The off beat characters added to the eerie character of this story. It's a definite page turner.

I enjoyed this twisted, dark psychological thriller by EH Night about 4 missing women from the same town and the effort to figure out what happened to them. I had several different suspects along the way and while I did figure out part of the plot, I didn't anticipate the dark, twisted reasons behind the actions. Look forward to reading more by this author.

Loved it. Everything tied together at the end. The chapters were well written and lengthy with clever titles. The suspense was built, attention grabbing and held until the revelations and questions were answered. The characters and small town setting were excellent. I enjoyed this read so much. Great job, E. This book did not disappoint, I look forward to your future titles!!!

Although the plot line was interesting, I could not get on board with this book at all. The writing style was extremely juvenile, which put me off a lot. There were also a lot of mistakes that could have been easily avoided if the book had been proofread properly before publication.

2 stars. Unfortunately, for me, it just did not hit the spot.

'While some monsters are born, others are created..’

Upon picking up this book I was instantly immersed into the words and descriptive style E.H Night brings to what is a chilling and mystery shrouded story. By the 8th chapter I’ll admit I couldn’t put it down.

The Four Before Me leans a little towards cliche but it works in an original way that keeps readers guessing throughout. It’s the late 80’s and Alice our main character; moves to small town ‘Wintersburg’ in search of a new start from the

Ms. Night is a talented writer and weaves a story of small-town life that is compelling and interesting. I wanted to give this book closer to a 4-star rating (maybe 3.8), but that's not an option! There should be something between 3 and 4.

It starts with great promise. It is eerie and has the hallmarks of being a great mystery-thriller. Four young women have gone missing in a town of only 1,000. When Alice arrives in town, a "city girl" moving to the small town where her beloved grandmother

Normally, I don't read horror thrillers, but this is one that I'm glad I did.

This novel follows the story of Alice, a woman moving to a small town to build a new life. However, a darkness underlies this idyllic setting.

The author writes in a wonderful style that brings the reader perfectly into this cozy environment by creating detailed characters and nailing the nuances and gossip of their interactions. The tension rises with each page turn as more of the haunting secrets of the town are
