Burning Night is novel by Nikki Broadwell. This is my first novel by this author.
Escaping an abusive relationship, Collie leaves with the help of her friend Mary who gets her a truck and money. But when her money is stolen, she is forced to return to exotic dancing. Though she is skeptical of it working because of her age.
Her goal is to attend Burning Night which is located in a small town in Alaska. She also meets younger man named Tim. Will she find happily ever after or will it just be another heartbreak?
I have been in a reading slump lately and was apprehensive about reading anything. The summary caught my attention and I thought I would give it a try. I’m glad I did. Collie was strong and vulnerable and it was great to read her growth and how she overcame obstacles. I was so happy when I was reading her leaving her abusive husband and trying to regain her self confidence that had been lowered over the years.
I don’t want to give too much away. With a strong female lead, a little romance and a theme of overcoming obstacles and reaching your goals, this is novel that can be relatable to anyone who reads it.
This story maybe short but it leaves you on the edge and doesn’t let go. I really enjoyed this novel and will read more by this author.
