Product description


"If Big Little Lies met To Kill A Mockingbird and had a compulsively readable love child, that book would be The Night the Lights Went Out. I couldn't stop reading!"--New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig

"One of [White's] best books ever and it is as fresh as a new-mowed lawn. She gives her readers a little humor, a little drama, a little romance, and a little murder. Put them all together and they spell fascinating."--The Huffington Post

"Combines elements of Steel Magnolias with Gone Girl...touches all the bases of a chick-lit thriller, but White's sense of history gives the narrative a perspective that few mainstream entertainments have anymore."--StarNews (Wilmington, NC)

"Part Southern fiction, part women's fiction, part psychological thriller, part sweet romance, and part historical mystery--White's newest novel has it all....The deeper readers get in this story, the less they'll be able to tear themselves away from the complex characters and exquisite prose."--RT Book Reviews

"An atmospheric and entertaining look at the friends who keep your secrets--and the friends who keep you guessing until it's too late."--Kirkus Reviews

"Addictive, heartwarming, and suspenseful...a must read this summer! It is a read whose characters will stay with you long after the leaves begin to fall."--Caffeinated Book Reviewer

"With well-developed characters, a strong sense of place, a suspenseful plot, and plenty of Southern axioms sprinkled in, this is a warm and engaging novel by prolific author White. Verdict: Recommended for readers who enjoy the stories of Beatriz Williams, Kim Boykin, and Mary Alice Monroe."--Library Journal

"Part Liane Moriarty (for the gentle skewering of wealthy suburbia), part Kate Morton (for the connections between secrets of the present and the past), and part Mary Kay Andrews (charming and very Southern), White's latest should find a wide readership."--Booklist

Book Description
