The Night Visitors Reviews
Alice and Oren are on the run from an abusive husband/father. When they are taken in by Mattie it seems like a common story of social worker trying to help, but this story mixes in past secrets and ghosts that turn the situation on its head.
The only saving grace to this book was Mattie’s character. The numerous coincidences and plot twists/shockers were actually tiresome at the end.
When Mattie, a social worker, gets the call that a woman and child are arriving on a bus and need her assistance, she's ready. The call came into the hotline at the Sanctuary, and they know Mattie is always available to help out and take those in need--especially domestic violence victims--to a nearby shelter or safe house. But when Mattie sees Alice and ten-year-old Oren get off the bus that snowy night, she somehow can't drop them off at the shelter. Is it because Oren reminds her so much of h ...more

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Harper Collins, via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I almost want to give this book a 5-star review!
I give it a 4.5 *technically*
This book is SO good. I was instantly drawn into this book. It starts off so suspenseful that you don’t even know what to think or make of it. I don’t want to say too much but there’s some things that are huge reveals and plot twists and it’s just insane. I don’t know why I have never read a Carol Goodman novel until now but she is definitely an author I will be picking up from again!
