About the Author

I grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, spending summer evenings on the front porch listening spellbound as grownups told tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural.

Storytelling has been a big part of my life ever since. As a small child, I often entertained myself by imagining exciting stories, even before I could write. Now, when I enter a story world and watch the characters act out an interesting or exciting tale, I write down what they do and share it.

But my stories don't fit the accepted genre rules. And since I have to tell what a story's genre is when I publish it, I pick one that seems closest. But, oh, how I wish the publishing venues had an option that would fit: Higgledy-Piggledy Genre.

Tommie Lyn is a great writer. This book kept me turning pages all the way to the end. The characters are well rounded. The romance was real. The suspense was thick. The danger was intense. I didn't know who the man behind the killer was until the very end!

As someone who has never been to the south-east, I appreciated the attention to detail given in description. You'll really feel like you are in the heat and humidity - not to mention hurricanes! :)

I'm looking forward to reading more from Tommie Lyn.

Usually, it's books written by Vince Flynn or Kathy Reichs that can, will, and do keep me up until all hours of the night. Well, move over, Vince and Kathy! Tommie Lyn has won that coveted award too.

Being that I write mysteries, this particular offering from Tommie Lyn had me intrigued from the get-go. I was immediately asking questions as I read about Shelley Goodnight, her friends, family, and the Southern Charmer Sheriff's deputy, Clay Cameron. (This, by the way, is a good response to a mystery book!) I was trying to guess at everything--this person's relationship with that person, that person's ulterior motives, this person's honesty, etc.

I fell in love with Shelley and Clay. I wanted them to end up together. :) (Trying super-hard not to spoil it for others.) I loved how protective of her he became.

And of course the mystery was great too. It had everything I love in a good who-dunit: politics, ulterior motives, are-they-good-or-are-they-bad guys, twists, turns, love affairs. And, there was even a bit of a moral to parts of the story. (Not spoiling it, not spoiling it!)

If you enjoy a good murder mystery mated with a romance story, you'll enjoy '...And Night Falls'.

This is a good book and well written,with plenty of charactures drawn together which cleverly masked the outcome. It is very atmospheric and draws the reader into the story. The authors discription of the area's and characters in the book are excellent. This is a really good read and we are looking forward to the next book.

'...and night falls' is a well-written novel that keeps you guessing til the end. The characters are believable and true to life and you find yourself rooting for them as the story moves along at a great pace. The well-described setting IS familiar to locals, but outsiders will have no trouble picturing it for themselves with Lyn's great descriptions.
A wonderful read that I have and will recommend!

I found much to like about "... And Night Falls," and a few things that didn't quite work out for me. The prologue set the stage well and drew me into the story. However, when I started chapter one, where we first meet the protagonist, twenty-something Shelly Goodnight, something felt off, although I wasn't sure what. In this section, Shelly, who has lived with her parents in the nine months since her divorce, is telling her Mother that she wants to "stand on her own two feet" and her first step is going to be moving into her own apartment. It isn't that her claim lacks in sincerity. That is true, but intended. I don't think it was anything in the author's writing style. Whatever it was, I quickly got past it and was drawn back into the story.

However, I did find later instances where Shelly's actions didn't ring true. The most egregious was a situation where she pulled out a pen and paper and began writing down notes about the situation she'd found herself in. That part was mostly credible, but then it evolved into an exercise in free association that seemed unrealistic, not just for this character, but also for most people. It was also a crucial point in the story, where Shelly makes some mental connections and realizes a few things that enable her (and the story) to flow to the logical conclusion.

The ending was mostly satisfying. Each of the different story threads were tied off in an acceptable fashion, with two exceptions. One involved possible repercussions to Shelly's father. This was left vague, with Shelly concluding that whatever happened would be alright. This felt too wish-washy and, for Shelly to conclude anything without having a better idea of what might happen, it was hard to believe she would know how she felt.

Format: Paperback
William Goodnight is the notorious king of the Florida Panhandle. Shelley is daddy's little girl. So when she needs a job, he creates one in his real estate office. Little does he know that this particular act of nepotism could lead to the downfall of his shady empire.

Shelley reluctantly accepts her father's help. After divorcing her college sweetheart, she moves into her own apartment. Living alone for the first time, she is determined to become independent.

She is off to a fresh start when the unthinkable happens. On a beach camping trip with her friends, she stumbles across the body - of ironically - her co-worker Farrell Gilbert. When the police arrive at the scene, Shelley's path crosses with Deputy Clay Cameron who finds himself instantly attracted to her.

Don Yearwood, Clay's fellow police officer, holds a familial grudge against the Goodnights. Farrell Gilbert was his cousin, and he is determined to hold Shelley and her father accountable for his murder. The history between the families is filled with blood and betrayal and Don is determined to seek revenge.

When Shelley is taken to the police station for questioning, Daddy once again comes to the rescue with his longtime friend and business partner, Attorney Kendall Shapiro. Shapiro is in the midst of a U.S. Senate campaign and the demands of William Goodnight are not a top priority. The power struggle between the two friends is brought to the forefront with Shelley's involvement in finding Farrell Gilbert's body.

Clay becomes an integral part of Shelley's life. He offers his protection when he begins to suspect that things are not what they seem with Farrell Gilbert's death.
