On a Night Like This is book one in a new series from Barbara Freethy. The first books in new series not only have to deliver on the promised romance, but also introduce us to characters we’ll want to get to know better in later books. On a Night Like This delivers on both counts.
I enjoyed that this book was based on a story line that could happen in real life and included a mystery or two that will, hopefully, play out over the course of the series.

We meet our hero and heroine during what can only be an exciting time in their lives, each envisioning a much different life.

It is the story of a man swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears…

If you’re like me, you have started off this year full of great ideas of how you’re going to increase or improve your reading selections this year. A high school friend of mine who loves to read as much as I do asked if I wanted to do the One Year Reading Challenge with her this year.
I plan to post about my progress each week, so I think this reading challenge will help me to round out the blog with a wider variety of books reviewed.
