That Night by Chevy Stevens

That Night is an engrossing read. Be prepared for an emotionally charged read.

Toni is thirty-four years old when she is released from prison for a crime she did not commit. She along with her boyfriend, Ryan were incarcerated as teens for the brutal murder of her younger sister, Nicole.

 Sixteen years have passed and Toni now has to face the outside world and her past. She returns to the little town she grew up in determined to start her life over but the challenges she faces might be more difficult than the time she spent behind bars especially when Ryan reenters the picture. Toni's only hope is for absolution.

That Night alternates between the present and past dating back to the time period before, Nicole's death.  The characters are well developed and the storyline is believable. This is a near perfect psychological read. My only issue which drove me nuts is how the author used the words prison and jail interchangeably. 

Grade: A-
