misgivings—Seema’s husband, Vipul, has been just a little too friendly with her lately—Jia concedes it’s probably the best place to keep Ishaan safe during the hurricane. With Jia’s philandering ex scrutinizing her every move, all too eager to snatch back custody of Ishaan, she can’t afford to make a mistake.
When Vipul’s brother and his wife show up on Seema’s doorstep, too, it’s a recipe for disaster. Grandma, the family matriarch, has never been shy about playing favorites among her sons and their wives. As the storm escalates, tensions rise quickly, and soon someone’s dead. Was it a horrible accident or is there a murderer in their midst?
With no help available until the floodwaters recede in the morning, Jia must protect her son and identify the culprit before she goes down for a crime she didn’t commit—or becomes the next victim. . .

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
If you enjoy claustrophobic locked room thrillers with a bunch of family drama, then this is the book for you! The Night of the Storm takes place over one night when a family is trapped in a home together during a hurricane. There’s a lot going on for these characters to contend with (as if being trapped in a during hurricane Harvey isn’t enough) which makes it a very tense read. Readers can expect secrets, lies, mentions of cheating, and murder. Now, while I wasn’t completely surprised at the twist, the reasoning behind everything DID surprise me. I guessed the killer but had no idea WHY they did it until it was revealed. The fact that the author made it predictable AND shocking is fantastic! I didn’t expect that. Overall, I think this is a solid locked room thriller and I love how the author weaved the story because it kept my interest from beginning to end.
