Midnight Secrets (Wildefire #1) by Ella Grace

On a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years, they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them home.

Savannah is the first one back, when a grueling case in Nashville leads the young prosecutor to seek shelter in the quiet of the once grand Wilde mansion. But when she finds letters casting doubt on her family’s dark, shameful past, she realizes that peace in Midnight is a shallow façade and sinister secrets lurk beneath the surface. Zach Tanner, once the town’s bad boy, is now the new police chief and still has a wild hold over her. Zach can feel it, too, but he hurt Savannah once. As teenagers, they broke every rule together. Now it’s his job to keep her safe, even though he isn’t sure who her enemies are—or which ones might be his own.

5/5 stars

What a great start to a fantastic new series. It takes place in a small town in Alabama where a murder-suicide took place eighteen years ago. The daughters of that couple all grew up and left town ending up in different cities working in some type of law enforcement capacity.

After a big case in Nashville, Savannah comes back to get the old homestead packed up and sold. While doing that she runs into her first love from her teenage years, Zach, who has himself moved away for awhile and came back to become the chief of police. While dealing with a case Zach and Savannah are once again together and are fighting their feelings for each other. But due to past hurts it isn't a smooth courtship this time around.

I thought Zach and Savannah were perfect for each other and was rooting for their HEA right from the start. The story was full of twist and turns and a few creepy people that had me unable to put the book down (I read it one day). The secondary characters were pretty interesting too. I look forward to reading the stories of Samantha and Sabrina to see what kind of men makes those two women happy.
