Book Review: Nightfall by, Laura Griffin

by M. J. Joachim

Nightfall is an interesting story, not particularly uncommon as stories go, but enjoyable enough to read. Set in the snowy, desolated terrain of Montana, Holly, the main character, faces certain trials while driving on icy roads. As is common in these situations, she ends up in trouble. I’d tell you more, but then I’d have to offer a spoiler alert, which might detract from you reading the book.

Someone else is traveling the road that night – typical boy meets girl scenario, something that doesn’t disappoint clear through the end of the book. Trouble surrounds Holly, quickly spreading to Colin who is dealing with troubles of his own, but can’t resist helping Holly anyway.

Nightfall is a light-hearted read that makes you wonder what will happen next, without keeping you in suspense too long. It’s a fun, light-hearted book meant to keep you entertained without overthinking. At least that’s how I read it, making it a wonderful choice after all the rush and excitement of Christmas.

You’ll see this one on my Recommended Reading List. It’s written well, with friendly characters to get to know, and a bit of drama/suspense to help you flip the pages.

Thank you for visiting Writing Tips. I hope your Christmas was wonderful and 2014 will fulfill your hopes, dreams and wishes.
