In Loving Night, Brynette Turner deftly crafts a well-paced suspense story that allows the readers to experience the criminal underworld through the surveillance by the FBI, particularly through one of its star agents Chaz. Despite his qualifications and capabilities, Chaz turns down an opportunity to advance his career in order to devote more time to his growing family. However, he is quickly pulled into a case that can affect the things he holds near and dear to his heart.
The story primarily centers on the relationship of Chaz and Stephanie, who were previously introduced in Premonition (Dream Catcher Series – Book 1). Stephanie has psychic abilities that allow her to see events before they occur. This proves to be invaluable to Chaz and his team while they investigate a criminal underworld led by Paul Watkins. However, there were times when it felt like Chaz relied too much on Stephanie’s dreams and not enough on his own instincts as an FBI agent. Aside from that, it was refreshing to read a story where the man is as clearly devoted and in love with his wife as much as she is with him.
While Loving Night is the second book in the Dream Catcher series, it can be read as a stand-alone. However, as Brynette Turner noted in the synopsis, the first book provides insight into the characters as well as the foundation of their love and respect for each other.
I received an advanced review copy in exchange for an honest review.
