The first thing I'd like to mention is that I thought that Joyce Bean and Dick Hill are phenomenal readers for this novel!! As I've mentioned before, narrators can make or break one's listening experience of an audiobook... So, I was thrilled that Joyce Bean and Dick Hill made my experience listening to Cover of Night a good one.
I enjoyed the premise/storyline of Cover of Night quite a bit. I also enjoyed the characters in this novel as well. Some of the details/plot scenarios in the Cover of Night seemed a tad far fetched Some of the romance scenes seemed a bit unrealistic too. But. overall I enjoyed listening to the Cover of Night by Linda Howell immensely.
The following is a plot summary for Cover of Night by Linda Howard from Goodreads:
In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. Though the overnight guests are few and far between - occasional hunters and lake fishermen - Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing. But Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate’s luck is about to run out.
One morning, the B&B’s only guest inexplicably vanishes, leaving behind his personal effects. A few days later Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man’s belongings. Fearing for her children’s lives, Cate agrees to cooperate - until Calvin saves the day, forcing the intruders to scatter into the surrounding woods.
The nightmare, however, is just beginning. Cate, Calvin, and their entire community find themselves cut off and alone with no means to call for help as the threat gathers intensity and first blood is drawn.
With their fellow residents trapped and the entire town held hostage, Cate and Calvin have no choice but to take the fight to their enemies under the cover of night. While reticent Cal becomes a fearless protector, Cate makes the most daring move of her life…into the very heart of danger.I am giving Cover of Night by Linda Howard a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
