Faye Barlow is drowning. After the death of her beloved husband, Will, she cannot escape her grief and most days can barely get out of bed. But when she's offered a job photographing South Carolina's storied coast, she accepts. Photography, after all, is the only passion she has left.
In the quaint beach town, Faye falls in love again when she sees the crumbling yet beautiful Bride Island lighthouse and becomes obsessed with the legend surrounding The Lady of the Light—the keeper's daughter who died in a mysterious drowning in 1921. Like a moth to a flame, Faye is drawn to the lighthouse for reasons she can't explain. While visiting it one night, she is struck by a rogue wave and a force impossible to resist drags Faye into the past—and into a love story that is not her own.
Fate is changeable. Broken hearts can mend. But can she love two men separated by a lifetime?
Well, well, well … I do believe Tiffany Reisz has made a solid fan out of me. The Night Mark is the second book of hers that I’ve read and love. I don’t know why, but I tend to feel a bit reluctant to read her books because I get the lame-ass idea that it’ll be dense and boring. I have no clue why the hell I’d think that, because both books have been the total opposite. It’s damn near impossible to not be completely captivated by this story.
Faye is not in a good place after suffering such loss, so she decides to make some changes. When she travels to a South Carolina coastal town for work, the mystery and magic begins. She eventually finds herself transported back to 1921 where the way of living was a whole lot different. She’s even more shocked to find who else is there.
Reisz really does a fantastic job weaving this story of love and second chances that transcends time, all while masterfully unfolding a compelling mystery. It was a bit of a rollercoaster that had me gripping my Kindle at times, because the feels are very much real!
I totally fell for all of these wonderful characters, including Pat, Dolly, Ty, and a certain someones else. Plus, I’m a huge fan of humor and good dialogue, and both are very much accounted for here. It has it all!
This is absolutely a standalone, but I have to mention how much I love the connection to The Bourbon Thief.
Overall, I adore The Night Mark and look forward to reading more by Reisz.
