#41: That Night - Chevy Stevens

As a teenager, Toni Murphy had a life full of typical adolescent complications: a boyfriend she adored, a younger sister she couldn’t relate to, a strained relationship with her parents, and classmates who seemed hell-bent on making her life miserable. Things weren’t easy, but Toni could never have predicted how horrific they would become until her younger sister was brutally murdered one summer night.
Toni and her boyfriend, Ryan, were convicted of the murder and sent to prison.
Now thirty-four, Toni, is out on parole and back in her hometown, struggling to adjust to a new life on the outside. Prison changed her, hardened her, and she’s doing everything in her power to avoid violating her parole and going back. This means having absolutely no contact with Ryan, avoiding fellow parolees looking to pick fights, and steering clear of trouble in all its forms. But nothing is making that easy—not Ryan, who is convinced he can figure out the truth; not her mother, who doubts Toni's innocence; and certainly not the group of women who made Toni's life hell in high school and may have darker secrets than anyone realizes. No matter how hard she tries, ignoring her old life to start a new one is impossible. Before Toni can truly move on, she must risk everything to find out what really happened that night.
But in That Night by Chevy Stevens, the truth might be the most terrifying thing of all.

REVIEW:
You might notice I'm a fan of Chevy's already. Like, a huge fan actually. And yet, somehow I am more of a fan now. She is a genius storyteller. Her stories make my spine tingle. They make me look over my shoulder at night, and even disrupt my sleep. She has this way of weaving suspense, thrill and intrigue, it is so vivid that it feels real.
This story was not like the others I have read though. They were more thriller to me, while this had much more suspense. It worked though.
I was pissed it took so long for the characters to reach redemption though. When they finally did though... it was everything I wanted and more.
The surprise shouldn't have surprised me. In afterthought. But it did. I was literally oblivious to seeing it coming due to being so enthralled and submersed in the story. 
And F.Y.I.... I will never in a million years warm to Toni's mom. She's just a miserable person. I don't like that in real life or books.
Definitely a new favorite of mine and you can bet I am looking forward to whatever Chevy writes next!

5/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
