I ordered myself a copy of “When it Rains at Night” by Rebecca MacFarlane. It didn’t take long for the book to arrive, and it took even less time for me to finish reading it after it came in! Here is the bio from the back of the book:
“A self-proclaimed lone wolf, Spencer is a drifter who lives life by his own rules.
When he crosses paths with a young girl walking alone on the highway, his gut tells him to keep walking. He nearly passes her by, but there’s something familiar about her that he just can’t ignore.
Paige claims to have lost her memory, and Spencer finds himself drawn into a stranger's bizarre predicament. Against his better judgment, the pair set off on an unexpected journey to uncover Paige’s identity. When a jittery trucker and a roadside café prompt some terrifying memories, the truth of who Paige really is unfolds into a mind-bending nightmare.”
I didn’t know what to expect when ordering this, but I can say without a doubt that this was one of the better novellas I have read in the last little bit. Some might consider this book short, but at just over 160 pages for me personally it was the perfect length. This allowed me to finish it in one sitting over the span of a few hours, and each hour of reading was filled to the brim with excitement—and I have no problem suggesting this one to readers everywhere!
The characters were intriguing, and in the long run, I plan to check out more from Rebecca some time soon. Rebecca is sincerely a talented writer, and she is deserving of any attention that she gets! -Devin J. Meaney
