I really enjoy Carol Goodman’s writing! The first book I read of her’s was fantastic, you can check out my review for that book by clicking here “River Road”. Her style of writing is easy to follow and her stories keep you turning the pages and not wanting to put the book down!
In her newest release, “The Night Visitors”, we are introduced to Mattie. Mattie is a social worker who lives by her self in her family’s home that is nestled in the woods. One night she gets a phone call that a woman and child are arriving on a bus soon and they need her assistance. Mattie doesn’t think much of the situation as she is always eager to help whenever she can and heads to the bus stop. She is especially eager to help cases like these, victims of domestic violence.
Soon arrives Alice and Oren on the bus. Mattie had planned to take them to a nearby safe house, but when they arrive she can’t seem to bring it to herself to take them there. The boy, Oren reminds her of her own little brother who died when he was almost the same age as Oren is now. Although Mattie is somewhat breaking their code of conduct and rules by offering them to stay at her own house, Alice and Oren also have a secret…….There’s a snow storm on the horizon as everyone gets settled in at Mattie’s house and soon another kind of storm is about to unleash, one that may be deadly…….
There are several twists and turns in the story that will keep you glued to these pages. I look forward to reading more from Carol Goodman! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a thriller/mystery. Carol’s stories get right into the excitement and mystery right away and I love that! The only reason I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars is, I wish it was a tad longer or a few parts a little more dwelled upon, but it was still an excellent story!
