Christmas, Tennessee isn’t a town where people lock their doors or have really bad crime rate. It’s a nice little town until the night where blood is found, no body is around and a murderer is about to destroy this little town’s safety. For Police Chief Tucker Ambrose, he is hoping this is a prank by the local kids and not real blood because after his years on the Chicago police force, he has a gut feeling his little town is about to get dark and deadly. Miranda Harley knows what is going on in Christmas, Tennessee and it isn’t santa delivering gifts. A serial killer is using this sleepy town as his personal playground and she will have to convince the police chief that she isn’t lying. But when the killer decides Miranda is next in his bloody spree killing, Tucker will have to let go of his doubts as he races against the clock to save Miranda and capture a deadly killer.

Oh lord have mercy, this book left me reeling as I hung on for dear life. This is a fast pace murder mystery that will chill you then thrill you with each page being turned. I never read this author before but man, what a great storyteller this author is. They deliver a spine tingling story that leaves you scrambling to put together clues and solve the mystery plaguing Christmas, Tenn. The moment I thought I figured it out the author tosses a twist that left me gaping in disbelief as I hurriedly flipped the pages to see what would happen next. The writing is tight, characters are well written and the story moves at such a fast pace that I was just sucked into the story from page one. You really can not put this book down, even to eat dinner.

Meet Tucker and Miranda. Two people who are as opposite as they can get yet are drawn to one another. Tucker can’t believe Miranda that a serial killer is using his town as their personal killing zone yet he can’t help but be drawn to this spunky woman all the same. Miranda is a woman on a mission and she is determined to make Tucker know that there is a killer in his town. These two had sparks flying right from the moment they met. I loved their scenes with one another and even as Tucker tried to believe her, he couldn’t keep away from Miranda as well. The author does a great job in capturing the characters distinct personalities. These two main characters don’t normally go together but the author does a great job in capturing that whole opposites attract thing and writing it in such a away you can’t help but root for these two. The secondary characters are well written and kept the story moving at a nice pace.

SILENT NIGHT is a true gem of a story that leaves you breathless and the last chapter or two will leave you spell bound. The murder scenes are pretty graphic so if you are squeamish I recommend just skimming these sections though I didn’t find them too graphic for my tastes. If you enjoy a good thriller that leaves you eager for more then you will enjoy SILENT NIGHT. I can’t wait to see if the author returns to Christmas, Tennessee or what else they have in store for the readers in the future.
