"[A] refreshingly plot-heavy tale featuring a believable and endearing hero and heroine." —RT Book Reviews
"With every book I read by Melinda Leigh, I'm repeatedly amazed by her ability to create atmosphere and tension. From the first page, there is excitement in the way she writes, a special kind of atmosphere which brings the story to life and also makes the suspense storyline engaging and gripping … I highly recommend Midnight Exposure to fans of romantic suspense and those who like a challenge with their books. It's the start of a brilliant series with a very interesting ending, an ingenious mystery plot and a nice romance.” —The Romance Reviews, 4 Stars

Usually I’m rather brutal in my reviews of male readers, especially when they do the female voice as well, (which doesn’t occur much) but he was great.
I enjoyed the story, it came at a nice time when I needed something refreshing. Perfect timing. I will try the next book in the series. Without having read anything about it, I’m secretly hoping it will continue with the lives of those gorgeous sounding brothers.
I really liked the reasons for the creepy villains actions. She developed that well without tipping her hand by prematurely revealing him (I knew one character had to be involved but minute clues said he wasn't the main bad guy and that kept me guessing for awhile). You really got to see the bad guy’s arc and goals and motivations. Still a very creepy guy but very well done.
This one starts with the disappearance of two hikers, which is blamed on the snowstorms in the Maine wilderness, but it’s oh so much more. Add in the attempted kidnapping of visitor, Jayne Sullivan, a tall red-headed beauty who is a part time tabloid photographer, a reclusive sculptor with past, and sparks fly. There is a well done happy ever after but not before some serious danger to traverse and problems, one of which is to keep Jayne out of the hands of a creepy Druid with an agenda.
I really enjoyed the story—clever in execution and fast paced with a good romance attached. .
The story is interesting, and I generally liked the characters. Even the nearly unbelievable situation that the heroine / victim finds herself in was compelling (once I got past the idea that so many bad things could happen to one person).
But the storytelling itself was too drawn out for my personal taste, going over the same things over and over and over again. He longs for the heroine but denies himself the chance to get to know her for many, many chapters. She longs for him but refuses to trust him for hundreds of pages, even though he shows time and again that he's one of the good guys. They both struggle with the fact that she's only in town for a few days for and agonizingly long period of time (I repeat... in only a few days! How can you struggle for what seems like an eternity when you've only known the person for about 48 hours?).
And by halfway through the book, they haven't even kissed yet... it's just painful how long this takes to get them together! I started to think that this book was written in 'real time' - you know - if an event in the book would happen over the course of an hour, then it would take the reader an hour to read it, detail by detail. SSLLLOOOOWWWWW.
Then, for my taste, there's not nearly enough dialogue. LONG passages of descriptions or internal thoughts that I tended to skip over because they were just reiterating something that a character had already done or thought.
People are all handsome, pretty or at least attractive. Setting, in a smallish city in Maine, is well described. Set-up is a little bit forced. Could have been better. A solid C for average.
If you're looking for a true romance novel this is for you, but as mysterises go it's pretty lame.
