Review: "Red at Night" by Katie McGarry


Red at Night is the first Katie McGarry book I've ever read. The author's reputation as being a good writer certainly precedes her and based solely on this free Harlequin: More Than Words novella, I think those accolades are well-founded. ^.^

Jonah and Stella have known each other since they were children. They've never been friends and merely know of each other's existence. Jonah is popular and well-liked while Stella...isn't. Then their paths cross in the unlikeliest of places and they strike up the oddest, at least on the onset, of friendships that blossoms into something more.

This was a beautifully told story that was more than just your run-of-the-mill romance between two teens who are opposites. The dynamic between Stella and Jonah isn't always perfect but then, isn't that how it is in real life? I enjoyed watching the relationship evolve and how they, as individuals, grew and developed. I also loved that it highlighted the real-life efforts of the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation headed by Nikki Berti. 

This was a quick read and I'm looking forward to checking out Katie McGarry's other published work very soon, namely the Pushing the Limits series which has gotten really positive reviews. ^.^ Red at Night gets 4.5 stars and is a book worth reading. ♥
