ROCK STAR ALERT!!!! And boy did book #1 turn so many of us inside-out. What. A. PREMISE!!!! And guess what??!! Book #3 was just announced (cover reveal and blurb and all!!) 😀
Jeanie: I’m 86% into Night Shifts Black – that blurb totally sold me! And I’m finally at that part where the “chair” is explained. Eeeep the feels!
Kim: I read Night Shifts Black the day it released! It’s MUST reads. A straight forward look in to depression without kid gloves and a HELLUVA read. I stumbled on it before any reviews not really knowing anything other than a former musician was in it ~ that was my initial draw. Boy oh boy, I kept thinking about this hidden gem that way more people need to read!!!
Jean: Okay girls, I’m only gonna say this once (well I might repeat myself). I’m reading Tracing Holland, the 2nd book in the Night Shifts Black series and FRIGGING LOVING IT! Luke Craven! Loved the first one too.
Tessa: Honestly, NSB is a little slow to start, because of the nature of the book, but I really loved it. I couldn’t put it down. Everything felt real to me. The erm, change from the expected, I saw some people didn’t like, but I honestly loved. It felt right, while the expected truly didn’t. *grins*
Eli: I finished Night Shifts Black, and I was speechless. I couldn’t review it right away or talk about it. I just FELT it. I absorbed all the “feels” that come with it. AMAZING. One of my ultimate favorites. …It is overwhelmingly beautiful. It touches your heart. LOVED IT! Must read!
Jean: NIGHT SHIFTS BLACK!! I HOPE YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DID!! AND YOU MUST READ TRACING HOLLAND TOO! MUST!
About book #1:
His name is Luke. But nobody knows that. He was an iconic musician before he gave up music. But nobody knows that either. They also don’t know he’s twenty-seven, that he used to have an infectious laugh, and that he’s way too young to be widowed. They certainly don’t know the rest of his tragic story.
All they know is that he comes into their café at the same time every morning and stares at the same chair at the same table. They know he’s strange. They know he interrupts their breakfast with a cold blast of air as he hovers in the doorway, mustering the courage to confront a piece of furniture.
No one asks why. No one cares. He’s fine with that. He’s done with life. This isn’t even his story anymore. It’s actually Callie’s, the young writer who sat in his chair one day.
This novel is a work of fiction and intended for mature readers. Events and persons depicted are of a fictional nature and use language, make choices, and face situations inappropriate for younger readers. Please note this book also addresses the issues of depression and suicide in a compassionate, realistic manner. This book can be read as a standalone, but the story continues in Tracing Holland.
SERIES READING ORDER:
- Night Shifts Black (NSB Book 1) <— My review
- Tracing Holland (NSB Book 2)
- Viper (NSB Book 3) <— “Viper can be read as a standalone, but also directly follows the action in Night Shifts Black and Tracing Holland.”
- Limelight (NSB Book 4) <— Can be read as a standalone too!
