Now she'll have to fight not just to find her family, but to keep them alive. And in order to save her family, Lizzie must rely on a love that's stronger than memory...

My Thoughts

With the gripping beginning of Comes the Night by Cathy Marlowe, I was reeled into the story from page one. Zach and Daniel, Lizzy’s husband and son, were abducted by a madman and Lizzy had no idea why or by whom. In addition to what happened to her family questions arose regarding Zach’s past. Although you could admire the fact that Lizzy would do anything to rescue her family, I often felt like she was reactive rather than proactive in situations, which just drew her and her family deeper into the nightmare. Throughout the story Lizzy seemed to act out of fear, so I was rather shocked when some of her actions were more sensible than they first appeared. As for Zach, I liked the depiction of this hero, because although he lost his memory, he was still in protective mode—even if he didn’t always grasp why he felt the way he did. Although Zach didn’t fully understand his actions, I liked how Marlowe utilized flashbacks to help the reader understand Lizzy and Zach’s unbreakable bond. The information revealed about their past made their connection appear to be a bit more realistic.
Overall, this was one suspenseful story that kept me super-glued to the pages. It’s just one of those captivating books. And once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down.

Rating 4.5/5

I received an e-arc of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I don't read a lot of suspense any more, but this one is on my to be read pile. The last suspense book I read was by Jordan Dane. That book really stuck with me. Lately, I prefer to read books that don't scare the crud out of me.
