Book Review: Midnight Caller

Late-night radio-show psychologist Rain Sommers is used to the crazies who call in to rage from the back alleys of the French Quarter and the shadows of the bayou. But one caller’s chilling obsession with her and her long-ago murdered mother—an iconic singer beloved among the city’s Goth community—has even the jaded Rain running scared as a sadistic serial killer known as the Vampire prowls New Orleans. 

FBI agent Trevor Rivette is convinced her midnight caller and the killer are one and the same. As itbecomes disturbingly clear that the Vampire has a sick bloodlust only Rain can satisfy, she allows Trevor to get closer and closer. But he soon discovers that his secretive past and troubled present are intertwined—and that he may die trying to keep Rain’s fate out of a madman’s control. 

Lately I have been craving a good romantic suspense so I was very happy to find one in my que of books to be reviewed.   And MIDNIGHT CALLER by Ms. Tentler was just what the doctor ordered.  It takes the reader on roller coaster of a ride.  The murders and the villain is particularly chilling while the growing relationship between Rain and Trevor is warming.

This is the first book by Ms. Tentler and I was rather impressed.  Her pacing and characterizations are spot on.  MIDNIGHT CALLER made for very enjoyable read.  I just don't recommend reading it when you are home alone at night.

I rate this book a 4.3.

I did receive this book from NetGallery in exchange for the review.  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.
