""An expertly rendered mystery, complete with compelling characters, an impeccably paced plot, and surprising twists...A must-read!" -Heather Gudenkauf, bestselling author of The Overnight Guest A scientist and reluctant psychic is brought in to find a girl who went missing long ago in the new novel by Julia Heaberlin, the bestselling author of We Are All the Same in the Dark Vivvy Bouchet, daughter of a known psychic, was ten when she saved a boy's life by making an impossible prediction. Now she's an astrophysicist in Texas, devoted to science, but the boy she saved has become a cop who continues to believe she can see things no one else can. When he begs for help on the high-profile cold case of a kidnapped girl, Vivvy steps back into the ocean of voices that once nearly drowned her. She is forced to team up with detective Jesse Sharp, a skeptic of anything but fact. When Vivvy becomes the target of a conspiracy theorist podcaster, she fights back with both her scientific mind and her inexplicable gifts, hoping to lure a kidnapper, find a child who haunts her, and lay some of her own ghosts to rest. Sharply relevant, Julia Heaberlin's Night Will Find You explores the mysterious nature of belief-in psychic power, in science, in conspiracies, in a higherpower-and the delicate dance between scientific truth and the things we can't explain"--… (more)

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. ( )

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.

Verdict
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! ( )

Vivvy is a reluctant psychic, who once used who powers to save a young boy. Years later she has devoted her life to science but the boy she saved has become a detective, and still believes in her. He asks her to help him with a difficult case of a missing girl that was kidnapped, with zero leads. Vivvy is at first uninterested, but after touching a blood stain, she receives a vision that the girl, Lizzie, is in fact alive. She's forced to work with a detective named Jessie who really doesn't believe Vivvy.

This was a really good thriller. I don't believe in psychics but that didn't affect my enjoyment.

I was given a copy of this book after it published but I appreciate it anyway! ( )

Vivvy is a very special woman. She sees and feels certain psychic phenomenon. She has helped the police out on quite a few occasions but she has now been brought in on one of the most famous Texas mysteries, the cold case of a kidnapped child. She must team up with a doubter of her abilities, Jesse Sharp.

I loved Vivvy! And she makes quite a few mistakes, especially with the podcaster, and this does not help her case. But, she truly wants to find this little girl. She knows deep in her soul that this case is not what everyone thinks. It takes all her powers and intelligence to discover exactly what happened. And you can bet, it is not at all what you think!

I truly cannot wait to see these characters come alive on tv. I have specific visions for each and every one (which will most likely be my downfall!). I also want this to be made into a book series. I can see Vivvy helping the FBI and creating a world of solved cases surrounding her.

Oh my word y’all, Karissa Vacker, is the narrator and she is amazing. She has become one of my favorites. She is perfect for Vivvy and I loved her voice for Jesse. This lady can make any book outstanding!

Need a wonderful, twisted mystery….THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )
