The Night She Fell is the first book by Jennifer Soucy that I've read... and it's not going to be the last! There's actually already a sequel announced to this one which I will absolutely be checking out - come on 2021! In this story, we follow Cori with her ambition to be a strong witch like her mama as she navigates through a quick, passionate romance with a man whose family with a dark, sordid past could not be more different from her own. Cori and her mama are restaurant owners just making i ...more

Cori has been waiting years for her powers to kick in like her mama. Her mother is a witch, and her powers make their food taste just a bit better. But Cori’s power kicks in right around the time she meets Hayden. Her mother wants Cori to stay away from that family. But love leads a young heart where it goes, whether you listen to your mama’s warnings or not.

So I’m going to get the things I didn’t love in this out of the way, and that’s the names. I’ve said it before, I understand it’s fun for

This dark romance captures your heart then pushes it aside and grips your spinal cord.
I was hooked on this author after her first novel- Demon in Me. If you like dark paranormal romance that edges into horror, you will enjoy this read.
Soucy crafts an engrossing, believable love story for a relatable, well-developed main character- kitchen witch, Coralena. Her hesitant, uncooperative magic, her devotion to her mother, the restrictions of her social status, flesh her out as a heroine I could root

This is the 1st book I've read written by Jennifer Soucy; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

Thank you to Jennifer Soucy for providing me with a copy of The Night She Fell in exchange for an honest review!

The Night She Fell is my first dance with the adult paranormal romance genre; typically, all of my experiences in that realm rests in the hands of Twilight and other popular series for Young Adults. Jennifer Soucy’s novel, although brutal in content at times, was a breath of fresh air. It was a fun, simple read & who doesn’t love their books laced with magic?

Speaking of lacing with mag

Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned…or that of a woman when you mess with her family.

Coralena del Prado is an easy-going, light-hearted young woman with a growing skill, not only to cook but to wield spells in her cooking, as her mother does. These “gifted” women own a bustling restaurant in Greenwich, Cornucopia, using their magic to keep customers coming back for more with their decadently delicious treats. Cori’s gift is slow to come though making her doubt her abilities and she l

I don't know how to feel about this one. I think I just expected it to go one way when it went a completely different way. I'm glad that there is a sequel because it left a lot unanswered.

The thing is Cori kind of got on my nerves at the end. She was in a particular situation for a long time which I found to be tedious. I expected her love interest to be something more. I found him uninteresting by the end of the book. But I'm also very curious to see where their journey continues. And I hope th

A story of love and loss. Of finding and losing yourself. In this dark fantasy we get to follow a group of people who are all connected by blood, choice, or past events. I especially liked the different relationships between the mothers in this story and their respective children. It was done so well that even when you didn't agree with what they did, you understood why they did it.

This book is also filled with people trying to make the right choice in impossible situations and then dealing with

This is the second Soucy novel that I've read and it did not disappoint. Rich with imagery and layered history, The Night She Fell builds a world of witches and rituals that is as intricate as it is interesting. I personally loved Cori's relationship with her mother and the complex parent/child relationships that are portrayed throughout the novel. As the tale progressed, it grew darker and more twisted, taking the reader into unexpected places. If you like to devour beautiful writing, you'll wa ...more
