As a teenager, Toni Murphy had a life full of typical adolescent complications: a boyfriend she adored, a younger sister she couldn’t relate to, a strained relationship with her parents, and classmates who seemed hell-bent on making her life miserable. Things weren’t easy, but Toni could never have predicted how horrific they would become until her younger sister was brutally murdered one summer night.
Toni and her boyfriend, Ryan, were convicted of the murder and sent to prison.
Now thirty-four, Toni, is out on parole and back in her hometown, struggling to adjust to a new life on the outside. Prison changed her, hardened her, and she’s doing everything in her power to avoid violating her parole and going back. This means having absolutely no contact with Ryan, avoiding fellow parolees looking to pick fights, and steering clear of trouble in all its forms. But nothing is making that easy—not Ryan, who is convinced he can figure out the truth; not her mother, who doubts Toni’s innocence; and certainly not the group of women who made Toni’s life hell in high school and may have darker secrets than anyone realizes. No matter how hard she tries, ignoring her old life to start a new one is impossible. Before Toni can truly move on, she must risk everything to find out what really happened that night.But in That Night by Chevy Stevens, the truth might be the most terrifying thing of all.
Toni is a typical rebellious teenager. Her sister, a typical
Goodie-Two-Shoes. Their parents, typically at odds with how to raise them. Mom and Toni are always battling head to head, while Toni’s dad tries to be the peace keeper.
Even though I knew in my gut as I read Toni’s story that something about her sister was just not sitting right with me, I never expected what happened!
I enjoyed reading Toni’s perspective from the time period of her sister’s death and fast forward to the time period she served time for what she swears she didn’t do.
Toni maintains her and Ryan’s innocence the entire time she spent hard time in prison and swore to get the the bottom of who really did it when she got out. Only, when she finally got out, everyone seemed to be against her efforts to start her life over again… especially Shawna! What’s with that biotch! She’s had it out for Toni since HS!
Anyway, we have read and reviewed Chevy Stevens books before and we keep coming back for more. We absolutely love her writing style and her unique way of keeping the reader at the edge of their seats!!!
