Red at Night
In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.
Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him.
What Did I Think of This Book?
This book is a part of a Harlequin series about remarkable women. You can find more information about the Harlequin series, their charity work, and the other stories at HarlequinMoreThanWords.com.
I really really liked this short read. Some days a girl just wants a quick, sweet story to brighten her mood and this definitely qualifies. Red at Night is a rich meets poor story it isn't like some of the generic stories out there. Katie McGarry has a knack for writing characters that you can connect with no matter where you come from. She seems to get the complexities of being a teenagers as well as being from two different worlds. Plus I loved the idea of these two meeting at a cemetery; it's a brilliant meet cute if you ask me.
