Joe Boyd got tired of city life and high crime rates. The town suits him fine with its laid back college community. He gets a nasty surprise when two people end up dead.
Rachel Cook's teenage crush morphs into full-blown attraction when Jack comes into town. He confides in her about the dreams, and she's drawn into the web of intrigue.
Suspense coupled with romance is always a big hook for me. Dan Walsh fashions a tale that made moves like a high-speed train. I had an inkling how it might end, but it still sent shock waves when it happened. The characters, setting, and storyline were unique and held my interest all the way through.
Dan Walsh is another new-to-me author. When Night Comes is the first book in The Jack Turner Series. I'm glad I got the Kindle version and sampled his work and look forward to the next installment. I'm giving this book 5 stars.
