The authentic writing style and Gabby's solid voice are huge strengths of this novel. The author knows her characters very well, and that is reflected in the strong writing. The tone of the novel is also very similar to its companion, ON THE EDGE, which is important for stories set in the same city and with many of the same characters. The setting is realistic and also very authentic, and the problems facing Gabby's community feel very contemporary and timely. LIGHT OF DAY and its companion can be read on their own, but the best reading is in their publication order.
Verdict: If you're looking for a highly recommended page-turning, heart-pounding urban romance then look no further!
