I typically spend half my time reading a thriller trying to guess who the antagonist is. The author did such a great job pointing the finger at so many possible culprits in this story that I just gave up and enjoyed the ride! I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator did a great job drawing me into the characters. A very engaging story with interesting subplots and multi-layered characters. This author is new to me and I will be checking out her other books. Highly recommend this one!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with this audiobook.… (more)

Night Will Find You had an interesting concept, but I think I would have liked this book a lot better if I didn't have a scientific background. It did require you to suspend belief in certain things or just let things go, and while I tried, eventually it just became too much for me to ignore. And while I did think the overall story line had potential, I wasn't necessarily a fan of the characters and the way it got there.

First of all, the overall plot in this book was actually interesting. Discovering what actually happened to that little girl was a fascinating story and if the plot had focused on that, my rating would probably have been a lot higher. The twists and turns as well as the difficulties to the resolution of that mystery were fascinating and it made me pause and think about all the innocent people involved and the effect it would have on their lives once they discovered the truth. I don't think the author went deep enough and explored the issues enough with regards to this plot line because of the secondary things that were going on which really distracted from the overall impact of the main story.

Vivvy is an astrophysicist as well as a psychic and she struggled with the idea that there are some things in this world that you just can't explain with scientific principles. I'm not sure how much science background the author has, but I couldn't help but roll my eyes quite a few times whenever Vivvy got into her science mode as her take on it is rather annoying and not very realistic. Honestly, scientists don't have to constantly look at ingredients in order to prove they have scientific backgrounds nor do they constantly read ingredients off packages to shame other people if they think they are using harmful items such as makeup and candles. You learn to keep a lot of that knowledge to yourself because people get easily offended. I didn't mind her struggles over being psychic however, as I could see how difficult this would be to accept, for anyone.

I don't really feel like a lot of the secondary characters were very well developed and honestly, the issue between Mike, Vivvy, and her sister had me groaning in frustration. She had this unhealthy obsession with this guy and when you read the book, you will understand why. I really wish the author hadn't gone there.

Night Will Find You was a long-winded, rambling story that had many secondary plot lines instead of just focusing on the main story line. It did have some interesting moments, the plot moves along quickly, but the plot holes leave many questions unanswered asking the reader to simply suspend belief and just continue on reading. If you like books about psychics helping out with police investigations, this one might be for you, but the inconsistent narrative and lack of character development was a disappointment.

I like that Vivvy Bouchet is both a scientist and a psychic and I love how the story comes full circle with the blue horses. This was an interesting mystery, the author was able to keep me guessing right up to the reveal.

Karissa Vacker did a great job narrating this novel and bringing the characters to life. i would say that I will look for more books narrated by Karissa in the future but I already have her set as a search option!

This was fantastic - Heaberlin has a beautiful turn of phrase, and while parts initially seemed meandering, everything ultimately had a point and purpose. Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a thriller so much. Highly recommended.
